April 2, 1 Samuel 21:1-9

April 2, 1 Samuel 21:1-9

David flat out lies to the priest Ahimelech and he didn't need to.  There are no places where a lie is OK.  And just because it's in the scripture doesn't mean God condones the action.  The bible is primarily a history book, telling the truth about the people and God even when that truth is not attractive.  David simply could have said he was on a matter which needed to remain secret, that he had to leave in haste and needed some supplies.  I fully understand his desire for caution, one never knows what evil or who is listening which we will see of Doeg in the future.
