Greetings KOTR Parents!
Commandment number 8 says: Do not steal. Stealing is taking something that does not belong to you without permission. Of course, we know that robbing a bank or taking something from a store without paying for it are stealing. Cheating on a test (taking someone else’s answers), taking credit for someone else's words or ideas (plagiarism) , making unauthorized copies of copyrighted music recordings are all forms of stealing as well. The BIBLE teaches us that GOD wants us to respect other people's stuff ... we simply cannot take anything that belongs to another person.
"You shall not steal." Deuteronomy 5:19 (NKJV)
