Summary of St. Augustine's Work


Could anybody give me a summary of St. Augustine’s work on lying and against lying?

I can’t comprehend it so much. Too many terms and too complicated philosophy being used. And I’m barely working through Logic. I’m a bit dyslexic so reading long compositions can be a problem for me. Thanks!


You can’t ever do it for any reason.


Probably better if you just read the Church’s actual teaching on lying. Its in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and a lot easier to read and understand.


“You can’t ever do it for any reason.” Please tell us you’re just exaggerating. Not even to save your or someone else’s life?
