Is It Wrong to Lie?

The Biblical record shows the occasions when Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David lied, but they were never condemned by God! In fact, the record shows that God was even on Abraham's side when he lied to Pharoah AND when he lied to Abimelech.

If God unequivocally banned man from lying, He could have made the 9th commandment, "Thou shalt not LIE", but He didn't. What He disliked was bearing false witness. Although bearing false witness is lying, not all lies are meant to bear false witness.

....under development. Come back soon and be less dis-oriented toward the concept of lying....
