"Is it ever right to do wrong?" In another post, ”Right or Wrong by Don”, a question was risen about whether or not it was OK to use deception as a way for getting people to read the Gospel I would like to expand the topic to "is it ever right to do wrong?" Please consider: In Joshua chapter two, we find a prostitute who has lied to the government authorities. Her deception was later mentioned in the NT Hebrews 11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. James 2:25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? Also consider the Sabbath Law. I think that the following verses teach us that there are times when a lesser law is overruled by a grater law. Luke 14:3-5 And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? And they held their peace. And he took [him], and healed him, and let him go; And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? Mark 3:1-5 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him. And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. This is an application of the principle, and I would very much like for people to tell me what they would do in the same situation and why. You are living in Nazi Germany. You have several Jews hidden in you house. The authorities come to the door and ask if you knew where the Jews were hiding. Do you break one of the Ten Commandments and lie to the SS or do you tell on them?
