just testing...but maybe, I'll write something.  A quote from Jonathan Swift, " But although the devil be the father of lies, he seems, like other great inventors, to have lost much of his reputation, by the continual improvements that have been made upon him." Lies, these days, lies are hard to ferret out, hard to beware of and difficult to stop. There are even different kinds of lies--big lies and small lies. These small lies are known by some as " a venial sin (meaning "forgivable" sin) is a lesser mortal sin would.  A venial sin involves a 'partial loss of grace' from God. They do not break one's friendship with God, but injure it."  --taken from that veritable source, Wikipedia. Who decides what is a big lie and what a small lie? If a lie effects a friendship and damages it, forever, does that make it a big lie? One wonders these things.
