Ok! So in general lies are bad, however, if it's to protect someone in MORAL DANGER (not just to hurt feelings) yes it is ok. Lying can also be used to not cause panic, or protect yourself.

Lying is both a necessary evil...but also not good to practice....White lies can be like putting a bandage on a deep gash...."It'll be fine" are what come first...but once they find out...it's like seeing a piece of you that was recently slashed at with a precision blade, unfelt until actually seen...White lies depend on the situation...with someone on the verge of suicide...a white lie may save their life...but simply saying one to make someone feel better may not be the best See More▼
