I'm in need of some money at the moment, it could potentially save my life. I have a friend who could give me that money but he wouldn't believe the truth, I'd have to lie. Would I get bad karma from that even though it could save lives?
I would not suggest that anyone lie. Lies often come back to bite you. Is your friend worthy of trust even if he will refuse you help? Are you willing to lose a friend over the issue? Is your need so great that the truth is not of importance? These are a few questions you must ask yourself. As for bad karma it is possible to come back on you in time. Though in what way is impossible to tell.

Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do, and make up for it later. Just be sure that money is returned and you're there for your friend in other ways. I believe the reason for loaning out money is not as important as the effort put forth by the borrower to pay it back.
