    Ive said yes. Lie's are decietful and not a Christlike thing to do.

    Its not as easy putting it into practice however.

          Rahab committed no sin in protecting the spies. If a woman says "How do I look in this outfit?", do I tell her the truth? It depends on the woman and the circumstances. If I tell her that she looks hideous, well there you go, I may have been better off not answering.

          I believe the scriptures are clear regarding bearing false witness.

          Lieing is a slightly different topic.

              Is it a sin to lie?
              Yes.
              Always?
              Yes.

              Proverbs 12:19 "Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord."
              Proverbs 3:3 "Do not let kindness and truth leave you."
              Proverbs 8:7 "My mouth will utter truth."

              Would I have lied to the Nazis about Jews hiding in my home? Yes.
              Am I pleased that Rahab protected the spies? Yes.

              But a lie is still a lie, and sin is still sin.

                  Revelation 21:8: But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, AND ALL LIARS, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

                  Based on this scripture, I voted yes.

                    It's one of the 10 commandments, for crying out loud. How would it not be a sin?

                      1 Tim 5:10,11 These laws are for people who are sexually immoral, for homosexuals and slave traders, for liars and oath breakers, and for those who do anything else that contradicts the right teaching that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.

                        It's a sin to avoid committing a smaller sin by committing a larger sin. Lying is not something that should be encouraged under normal circumstances, but it's a different matter when telling the truth would be very dangerous or harmful to another person or ourselves. It's something that takes careful discernment.

                        By the way, the ten commandment refers only to perjury, if I recall correctly.

                          Rahab didn't sin, as she was held as an example of faith in Hebrews and James.

                              You took the words right outta my fingers!

                              But in Peter's defense, I understand his questioning when it comes to danger. Would it still be a sin to lie if in danger. Now...this is just my opinion...not biblical or anything, but I think God would be a bit more lenient on us if we were in danger (real danger now...life and death danger) and had to lie. It's most likely still a sin cuz we lied...but life and death is the only reason I feel this way.

                              then again...if we lie in life and death situation, doesn't that mean we aren't putting our trust in God to see us through?

                              Live your life in such a
                              way that, when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says...

                              "Oh NO.... she's awake!"
