The key to making the right decision in the face of such pressures is to realize that the problem begins and ends with ourselves, and that Jesus should be our pattern.
Cheating is bad! Whether we're helping a classmate in need or personally seeking for help or plagiarizing; no matter how many different ways we want to look at it, cheating is bad! God doesn't like it (1 Corinthians 6:8-9b) neither do schools. It's totally understandable that people cheat in order to get a good grade; I have never heard of a student who wanted to fail in a class
The world in which young people live makes it so easy to be dishonest in regard to truth. Think how easy it is to cheat on examinations in school. In fact, we see so much cheating that we must be careful lest cheating appears to be normal to us. It is easy to believe that everyone does it, so why should not we?
