Someone recently brought up something interesting that I thought would be a great discussion. One of the teachers in the recent Connecticut school shooting hid her students in a closet, then told the gunman that they weren’t in there. She was killed, but lied to protect them. How do you feel about this? It’s a tough spot because in all honesty (no pun intended) she did lie, which is a sin, but on the other hand, she did it to save the children, and gave her life up doing it. If you reply with an answer, please give Biblical scripture to back it up. thanks…:) And don’t forget to keep the families of the victims in your prayers.
