Matthew 28:11–15 (ESV)

The Report of the Guard

11 While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. 12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers 13 and said, “Tell people, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.

 

 

The poor guards!  I know they were probably sick to their stomach and knew they were dead men… and they did nothing wrong.  Talk about confusion!  Then there had to be confusion that chief priest and the elders, and the counsel… paid them to lie.  What a terrible witness from the religious leaders.  We see the snow ball growing as it is rolled down the hill.  So much for the integrity of the guards.  So they took the money and lied about what had happened.  The hush money was sinfully taken, violating the Eighth Commandment: Thou shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to always tell the truth and to be a better witness.  Help me to not be swayed by money and greed, but to uphold personal integrity… even if it cost me my life.  I repent and want to do better.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
