I am about to confess my most recent concern for my own ability to do right. I am taking online classes. My Government professor has asked us to take the online quizes without notes or our book. I may have thought that was a grey area until today when I read about some very publized scandals.
The first that I read about was a nascar cheating scandal where a fuel additive was added to enhance the vehicles preformance. I'm sure that you have heard about he recent blood doping scandals where athletes boost the number of red blood cells to increase athletic stamina. I even watched a doctor portrayed on ER last night smudge the facts on a patients paperwork to gain them money on their insurance. Then there is the Enron scandal which I'm sure that I don't need to explain.
Through all of this I wonder, did any of these people justify all of the reasons that this was a grey area? Did they think that their actions would not really not hurt anyone else? Did they decide that getting ahead was more important than staying on track? Did they just think that they would never get caught? I think that the "grey" areas are the places that Satan lurks and lures. As a christian I know black from white, but I can argue that grey has some black and a little white all mixed together. So my goal today is to stay away from grey!
I am also shocked that cheating is mixed in here with some pretty "black" areas. I don't think that is something to take lightly.
1 Corinthians 6:10 9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
