"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32 KJV - Jesus speaking) "These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: "And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD." (Zechariah 8:15-17 KJV)The Bible mentions the word "truth " two hundred and twenty-four different times; and none of them justifies falsehood or lies on any occasion.

Are there any situations in which God is pleased when we lie? Very few, if any. The only ones might be when lying is the only way to prevent a very serious evil, such as murder. Lying to save an innocent life might be justified, just as killing in self-defense might be justified, but certainly not encouraged. Almost always, there are better ways than lying to accomplish any good purpose. Search for them.
Blessings to you. May God help us all.
