something used and represented in this manner.  ( From dictionary.com)


Never plagiarize!  Plagiarism  is generally used :

--to make the  Christian speaker and/or writer look far more advanced both spiritually and intellectually  than what they actually are.     The sad results: People will come to that person to receive wisdom and revelation knowledge that person does not  have in their own right – thus begins a false front if that person wants to “keep up the appearance” of being studious, wise , and knowledgeable.    

-- to give the impression that study was performed on a deeper level than it actually was

-- by very lazy  and deceitful people

Plagiarism is a SIN – it is lying about one’s abilities and stealing from those who did the actual work of study and expressing the results of that study.

The consequences: You  will probably lose your  Leadership or Word Ministry student status  here.  Always give credit  to the source(when you are  conscious of the source)  in your speaking and/or writing when doing an open pulpit, a sermon, or a school paper.
