I was watching an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond today and it sparked a thought that I haven't been able to dismiss all day. So much that I am using this as my Sunday school lesson tomorrow. (Don't fret, they're teens)
It was about lying. Long story short, Ray found out that his father lied to him about a signed baseball that Ray based his career choice upon. After finding this out, he promised Deborah that he would never lie to his children. No sooner did he make this promise, his oldest kid asked him is Santa was real.
How is the Christian to answer this question? Lie at the expense of keeping little Suzie happy? ... or, truth?
