I have my own opinion but wanted to know if the majority agree with me. Is it lying if you don't correct someone when they assume something and are incorrect. Example: Someone compliments you on your diamond earrings but they're just glass. Is it lying if you imply something that isn't completely true and others assume something about you because of it? Example: You introduce your wife and children to the boss but they're her children from 2 previous marriages and your birth children aren't even in your life. Is leaving out details that would change everything lying? Example: You 'talk yourself up' when applying for a job but forget to tell the boss that your experiences are not directly related to the job you're applying for. If someone is discussing something such as alcoholism or adultery and you have been hurt by such behavior but are not the offender, you withold that information to protect your repentant spouse, are you lying?
