Is It Ever Morally OK to Lie?

“The church claims to be absolute. It also claims that a morally wrong action is always evil no matter the circumstances. The church says lying is a morally wrong action. It has also said at a different time that it’s okay to lie to save a life and even occasionally obligatory. So how can the church be absolute? Please explain.”

Who among us, were we kidnapped twice,
Between age sixteen and twenty-two,
Being carried away to a faraway isle,
