This is not a question of one sin over another. I see a situation of several sins. Yes, lying is a sin. But so is fornication. And so are parent(s) who raise children who are not put into God's loving, caring heart.
It is best for this teenager, who is loved by Jesus, to repent. Confess the lying, the reason why the lie had to be told and the fornication. This confession can be done directly to Jesus alone. Then a repentance is necessary, such as fasting for 3 days to not only gain Jesus's forgiveness, but also to make it easier to say NO when temptation comes your way. If necessary, talk to a clergy, by phone or in person or by email and find out what other repentances can be done.
Just to be sure that Jesus is not going to hold this lie against you, I would confess and repent for it. Also, Rehab, a prostitute in the old testament did lie to protect two of God's chosen ones when they were spying out the land. But the Bible does not tell us what the spiritual result was in regards to this lie.
Keep in mind that Jesus now has another precious soul for His heart to love and cherish.
I pray that much reward shall come to you and your little one for not choosing death for the infant.
Sincerely in God's love,
Thank you for the reply. However, honestly i am telling you it's my friend and not me. If it was me i would have said so.
I think she already repent for her sins and she confessed them. The child is already a little girl now and the mom is very proud and happy of her. And she is not a teenager anymore. I think she did a good thing by keeping her child. It was really just a question, if her lie was a sin or not.
The little girl is so beautiful. When people talk to me about abortion and woman's rights I think about showing them a picture of this girl and telling them the story of my friend. How she could have been an abortion and what an immense loss it would have been.
