Actually, you can’t say that lying is wrong and absolute yet still believe that lying in some cases (i.e. to save a life) is right. Those conflict in a sense.

However one has to weigh absolutes. Which absolute is greater, not lying or not killing? You’re not necessarily being relativistic by saying that some absolutes have greater weight than others. It’s not as if you were lying for some sinister reason.
