“What’s the difference between the truth and a lie?”

The truth is good and a lie is bad.

    Not always! If I were hiding a runaway slave during the says of slavery, and some one trying to catch him asked me if he was in my house, I’d say, “No.”

So sometimes a lie can be good?

Sometimes, but almost always it’s best to be honest.

     Is truth the same as honesty?

         If I’m going to be honest, then I need to make sure the truth is really the truth.

             But do you ever know the truth once and for all?
