Can you imagine a world in where people couldn't tell a lie even if they wanted to? Knowing the damage that deceit and duplicity do to relationships, that may well be heaven. But not everyone would agree since many use lies and pretense to cover their own shame and brokenness. Living loved will increasingly give us the freedom to see God as he really is and find our way back to honesty and truth. Perhaps it would be better said that heaven is a place where there is no reason to lie — ever! That's why salvation is not just about forgiveness, but finding a path to God that will transform us from the inside out, and why performance-based living will never set us free. Almost everything in Scripture can be turned into religious rules that kill, or be seen as relational realities that invite us to hope and freedom.
