Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction How Do You Recognize a Christian? July 4, 2021 Most people are familiar with the classic ‘icebreaker’ party game, Two Truths and a Lie. To play, one person has to make three statements about themselves to the rest of the group. Two statements must be true; the other, however is a lie. Each person guesses which of the three statements they believe is untrue; and once all guesses have been made, the lie is revealed. It’s a fun, harmless way to get to know people a little bit better. And though the deception is intentional, it’s not really for the purpose of deceiving anyone. The point of the game is to learn new truths about others. But in real life, lying isn’t fun or harmless. Dishonesty breaks relationships and destroys trust. Being swindled or deceived can be costly. We’ve all heard stories of people who have lost everything because they trusted someone they shouldn’t have. There are multiple studies that suggest that, on average, Americans tell one or two lies every day.
