CCC 2571-2474 http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/p3s2c2a8.htm#II
John 18:37, Christ's reply to Pontius Pilate, I am the witness to Truth.
Martyr means witness, we should be martyrs to the truth Act 1:8
When we transmit the faith, we are witnessing to the truth and to Christ and loving neighbor
To falsify the faith, including moral teaching, is to not love the truth or one's neighbor, Focused on self and not on God, manmade religion.
2 tim 2:24-26 https://bible.usccb.org/bible/2timothy/2#63002023
We need to be kind, not quarrelsome
We should be hopeful to others, not hostile. Truth combined with charity.
CCC 2473 even unto death, supreme witness that fully mirrors Christ's life
"He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep, in order to win what he cannot lose"
Offenses against truth CCC 2476 https://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/p3s2c2a8.htm#III
When in court under oath, it is perjury, and does massive harm.
