Why the Tendency to Lie? The fact that “the whole worldÂ” lies in the power of Satan tells us why many people lie.Â ?? But we might ask, Â‘Why did Satan, Â“the father of the lie,Â” do so?Â’ Satan knew that Jehovah is the rightful Sovereign of all that He has created, including the first human pair. Yet, Satan desired for himself this lofty and unique position, something to which he was not entitled. Out of greed and selfish ambition, he schemed to usurp JehovahÂ’s place. To achieve this, Satan resorted to lies and deceit.
