Is "Thou shalt not lie" one of the ten commandments?
If not, why does our resident ******* former cult drone keep saying it? Does she simply not know the bible nearly as well as she claims to?

Depends on which translation you’re reading. Most of the English translations say something along the lines of 'bearing false witness against your neighbour' which is a form of lying, but there is no commandment which explicitly forbids all lying.

Sure. Bearing false witness against another is wrong. (That means lying.)
But also, consider the following passage.
"But now put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old nature with its practices and have put on the new nature, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator." (Colossians 3:8-10)

That issue is found in Revelation 21:8.

Yes. Exodus 20:16, “Thou shalt not bear false witness” forbids:
1. Speaking falsely in any matter, lying, equivocating, and any way devising and designing to deceive our neighbor.
2. Speaking unjustly against our neighbor, to the prejudice of his reputation; and (which involves the guilty of both).

There goes Trump. The ninth commandment prohibits swearing falsely against your neighbor in matters of law and civil proceedings, but, on a deeper level, it implicitly indicates the responsibility to be a witness of the truth at all times. Ninth Commandment - Note that the Hebrew word for “truth” (emet) is composed from the first, the middle, and the last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, thus indicating that it encompasses the first things, the last things, and everything in between. Thus, in relation to our neighbor (who is really everyone), we are to be truthful and bear witness to the truth in all our moments of life. By lying, by bearing false testimony, we effectively deny the relationship to the One who said, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.”
