    Is it ok to lie if you are doing it for God?

    No, but I guess people don't stop and think that what they're doing is actually hurting the youth of America :(

    Nope. At best, people can hope that what they are lying about is ok by God - but God doesn't need anyone to lie for "Him".

    If the person is being honest & realise God doesn't need them to lie for God, they will realise that they are lying for themselves.

    i voted yes. the main goal should be to save people from hell. this is accomplished when they accept Jesus as their savior, and that should be done any means necessary..

    Yes I agree. It's unfortunate that some seem to think lying is justified if it's for God.

    I don't think lying is ever okay. Jesus is Truth. Telling the truth can sometimes take much more courage than lying.

    What other sins are acceptable in bringing people to Jesus?

    What a horrible thing to say, you wear the symbol of Christ, yet you refuse him?

    I think you should rethink this.
    Consider the following counter:

    I will accept Jesus as my savior if you kill and devour a person.

    Now then according to you, since we have a means of getting me to accept Jesus it should be done, but it is hopefully obvious that killing and eating a person is evil, even if it means that saving someone else from hell. This means that the any means necessary idea is probably wrong.

    I can think of no truer definition of a "false religion" than ones which relies on the lies of others to recruit more believers.

    a little lie isnt as bad as homosexuality, or murder, or stealing, or praising any other god. although i may have jumped the gun a bit..I dont mean to suggest physical harm or anything. but i dont see anything wrong when people learn the truths about evolution. even if they are 'twisted' a little bit. we all know evolutionists try to twist things their way anyway

    Oh, so there's different levels of sins? I thought you Protestants didn't believe in that.

    You know, that whole a sin is a sin is a sin spiel.

    You admit you're willing to lie, why should I trust anything you say?

    Okay, this combined with the other post that said dad one of the most intellectual board members means this has got to be a joke account. Please?

    So as a Christian, it's ok for you to lie because other people do it? Interesting...

    Jesus would be proud.

    :(

    Because that's horrible reasoning. By that vein of thought I must condemn all Christians as liars because I know ones who lie. I must condemn all Christians as adulterers because I know ones who have comitted adultry. I must condemn all Christians as murderers because some have comitted murder. That's why such logic is faulty. I don't use you saying you'd lie to condemn all Christians do I?
