MEMORY VERSE: “For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.” – Proverbs 8:7 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 5:1-10 (KJV) (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 31 December 2023 HYMN)‬

1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

2 And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.

8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.

9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.

10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

Lies have some terrible offshoots which when put on a scale are all sinful. We however need to look at these horrific subdivisions and do away with them if we want to live a good life, see good days, have a godly home and society, and enjoy God’s presence always (1 Peter 3:10).





Some of the offshoots of lies are:

Falsehood: This is a false statement, a misrepresentation of the fact, the act of rendering something false by fraudulent changes such as documents or measures, (Proverbs 11:1; 20:10; Job 21:34) or simply not telling the truth (Psalm 144:8).

Exaggeration: This is closely related to falsehood. It is the act of giving to overstatement and needless embellishment of the truth or a bloated statement that does not exist (Matthew 5:37).

Deceit: This is the act or practice of deceiving; concealment or distortion of the truth for the purpose of misleading, fraud, cheating, etc. A deceitful person practices mischief without any form of restraint (Psalms 10:7; 50:19). An individual who is untrustworthy, two-faced, or fraudulent is deceitful.

Hypocrisy: An outright display of insincerity by virtue of pretending to have qualities or beliefs that one does not really have (Matthew 23:28; 1 Timothy 4:2).

Half-Truth: A statement that is only partly true, especially one intended to deceive (Acts 5:1-3. It is another way of being economical with the truth.

Guile: It is the quality of being crafty or the use of tricks to deceive someone – usually to extract money from them (1 Peter 2:1; 2 Corinthians 12:16-17).

Flattering: To praise excessively especially from motives of self-interest (Psalms 78:36; 5:9).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: The class should mention other offshoots of lies not listed.


The penalties of these offshoots of lies include; ruin (Proverbs 26:28b), getting cut off from God (Job 13:16; Psalm 12:3), being detestable (Proverbs 6:16-17), being susceptible to punishment (Proverbs 19:5), being accustomed to hypocrisy and iniquity (Matthew 23:28-29), momentary joy (Job 20:5), not seeing good days (1Peter 3:10; Job 32:22). No liar will make heaven (Revelation 21:27).

There are a number of things a believer can do to avoid telling lies. These include:

Being precise in communications (Matthew 5:37).

Telling the whole truth. This is a virtue that brings honour (Exodus 18:21).

Not playing smart (Proverbs 3:7).

Avoiding hasty responses (James 1:19).

Speaking without any forced brilliance (1 Thessalonians 2:3).

Employing God’s wisdom when speaking (James 3:17).

Putting a check on our utterances (Job 27:4).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should share with the class any lies they told in times past and the consequences.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

O how I love Thee well,

I am happy, it makes me glad

To rejoice at Thy birth.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Thy friend friendship suits me well,

Both young and will sing Thy song,

We long for Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Christ was Thy first teacher,

The Holy Spirit, great teacher,

Does manifest in thee.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

This testimony is sure,

That God, the Father Almighty,

Poured His blessing on Thee

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Though the sun be so bright,

Or if the clouds be black with rain,

I’ll be in Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day

I rejoice to see Thee,

Will thou pass over me today?

Without my being blest?
