  1. An important thing to note: lying usually requires an overt act. It’s why they refer to remaining quiet as ‘a sin of ommision’. I don’t know why the sin of omission is thought to be not as bad as an overt lie…but as you rightly point out, whether or not something qualifies as an actual lie, it’s still deception, and therefore dishonest. That would qualify for technical honesty, too…just because it’s not an overt lie, it’s still deception.
