In the simplicity in Christ, even as He asked the religious leaders and scholars, saying, Is it right to do good, or to do evil (and by the way it is irrelevant on which day it is); so also with this, Is it right to lie, or to tell the truth? It is not rocket science, and it is certainly not a philosophical discussion, which by the way was the downfall of Eve, who entered into a philosophical discussion with the serpent, that should provoke us to stay away from such. Lastly, lying is the last sin condemned in the scriptures, and is in the same catagory with murder, and other sins. So the answer to whether or not it is wrong to lie ought to be easily discerned by us all.
And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.
