There's an infuriating story from The Hiding Place in which Righteous Gentile, Corrie ten Boom, relates how her always-tell-the-truth niece betrayed the Jews she was hiding in her cellar because she valued telling the truth, even to Nazis, above protecting the precious people who had trusted her with their lives.
That chapter of The Hiding Place always made me furious.
Yes, lying is wrong. Yes, it's against the Ten Commandments. Yes, our word should be impeccable.
But when evil people demand information from us that we know they intend to use for evil...screw 'em!!! That's our cue to lie like rugs. General Michael Flynn did it so beautifully this morning, he should be our model.
