    Why was it ok for Abram to lie and be deceitful to the Egyptians when that is wrong.

    Romans 4:15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

    Romans 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law

    I think that some of Abraham's reason for lying about Sarah was due to his understanding of the promise God had made to him about multiplying his seed. So he must have thought it was best lie rather than die (which would have cut off the fulfillment of the promise God made to Abraham). God did not make a promise to Sarah, but to Abraham. So it was through his seed that nations would be blessed.

    Why would the Egyptians kill Abram over his fair to look upon wife? Gen 12:12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say,'This is his wife:' and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.
