For years, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones relentlessly promoted the lie that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax. His false claims added greatly to the pain and suffering of the grieving families. Therefore, a jury recently decided that Jones must pay $965 million to the people who were harmed by his lies. That’s almost a billion dollars! That’s a pretty steep price to pay for lying!
However, the ultimate price to pay for lying far exceeds the amount that Jones has been told he must pay. The Bible says that those who love and practice falsehood will be banned from heaven. Instead, they will be assigned their place in hell for all of eternity (Rev.22:15).
There is indeed a high price to pay for lying!
