Hi, this is the first time I am starting a thread on the PB. I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong area but I took my best educated guess. I want to thank anyone who takes the time to read this. I have some important questions that I couldn't seem to get a clear answer on elsewhere. There are various forms of plagiarizing, and I realize it may be more of a sin to steal the work of others in one subject than in another. For example, if I took Matthew Henry's commentary on some book and added his words into the mix of my own commentary--that would be far worse than if I copied someone's term paper and submitted it as my own for a class. Or are both equally offensive to the Lord? My main questions are: 1. Does God even care that we do it? 2. Is plagiarism a petty sin? 3. Does someone who plagiarizes tell us anything about that person or do we just give them the benefit of the doubt and let it go?
