Charlie’s college sent out an online survey a while back. They asked two questions:
1. Do you think it’s wrong to burn copies of CD’s for your friends? — 75% of the people who responded said no.
2. If you had the chance to steal something of low monetary value, would you? 90% of the people surveyed said no.
Eye opening conclusion. Most of the kids / young adults who responded to this survey do not recognize burning CD’s as stealing.
Let’s bring that home a little.
Do you think it’s stealing when a church plays a contemporary worship song not found in your hymnals, without a CCLI license and prints out the lyrics and all either in the bulletin or on the screen?
Is it stealing to order one bible study book and make copies for the class?
What do you think? Let’s talk about it.
