Bribe .. is it a sin?

What do you guys think of bribing? is it a sin or not? I know in some country like Australia bribing is against the law.. but in some other country, without bribing you just basically cant do anything such as Indonesia... So what do you think? Does the bible have any say on it?

it's a sin ... it's written on exodus 23 : 8 clearly. I live in indonesia, and im not bribing any legal officer, i go to the court alone by myself, also i got my driving license without any bribe. It's just an excuse to say that we can't do anything without bribing in indonesia, well, it takes more time and effort not to bribe and do everything as the way it supposed to be (legally) but i know that's the right things to do, and i stand firm on my principles, not following the others that bribe.

It might be a sin, it might not. According to the situation. If you are in Australia, it is obviously wrong if you bribe and you can even end up in jail. But, to get a driver license in Indonesia, if you dont bribe, how long would it take and it even more expensive at the end cause sometimes they just fail us. Whether it is a sin or not in Indoensia, I cannot answer for sure. But, what I can say is that God look at our heart.

bribe cannot be exactly called as sin,cause sometimes bribing helps us get outta tough situations.here in india the traffic cops can be so easily bribed that people tend to jump red lights,overspeed etc... even though its totaly against the law but still who follows the law?no1 i guess?wat bout u?
