Situation: The night before the exam instead of studying your lessons, you and your friends went to party and you got yourself drunk. After the party you went home to sleep and you forgot to study your lessons. On the day of the exam you saw your seatmate is very busy answering the test questions and offers you his answers . You know that cheating is a major sin. And you know if you will cheat you will violate the Ten Commandments of the Lord. What will you do? to cheat or not to cheat?

Hi :-) Welcome to myLot! If I was ever caught in such a situation, I would not have resorted to cheating. It was not a surprise test, it was known before hand that there was going to be a test the next day. Furthermore, yeah cheating is considered as a sin . Plus there are chances of getting caught while indulging in such kind of acts. By chance even if one succeeds, am sure our quilty conscience will preak us sooner or later :-)

Since it is my fault, I will accept the consequences. I will not cheat than go to hell. I know, temptations is very hard to avoid. But still, I will try my best not to cheat. And next time, I will study hard instead of partying the night before my exams.

I strongly Believe in God.Cheating is the greatest sin,a crime dat everyone can avoid.I wouldnt cheat in any of the circumstances.Cheating is Addictive.Once u do it u tend to do it again n again.So better dont do it.No matter u wud do it for the first time n then u r tempted to do again.Instead its good dat u dont cheat n score marks next time.Though it may cost u a year but u r distanced away from d greatest crime dat u might have committed.
