It used to be, if a company was found to be publicly making false claims about their product or service, they were admonished, and directed to remove the misleading ad. Today, it seems, there is very little concern regarding what companies (or the government) tell us in order to sell their product, service, or ideas.
The thing is, we, or they, might fool some of the people some of the time (some of them all the time), but God knows the real truth.
God knows our hearts, and He also knows we’re never going to be perfect. Try as we might, we will make mistakes, and that includes stretching the truth at times (I’m trying to go easy on us here). But God sent Jesus to stand in our stead, and Jesus never lied.
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
