No. According to the Bible, it's not okay for anyone to lie:
-- Proverbs 6:16-19: "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren."
-- Proverbs 12:22: "Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight."
-- Proverbs 19:5: "A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape."
-- Revelation 21:8: "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
