I recently became aware of there being two types of lies, and it explains why lying is not wrong. The first kind of lie is the one we are most familiar with, and the kind that we hate: that of lying to conceal the truth. There is another type of lie, one that reveals the truth. Fiction writers utilize this all the time, presenting an idea that is true through a story which is an utter fabrication. I suspect that this is why “lying” is not explicitly said to be a sin in the Bible, for the Bible itself is a parable.
