Plagiarism

You might not know what plagiarism means – essentially it is using someone else’s work whilst pretending it is your own. Personally I am tired of hearing people in church preaching sermons which they claim to be their own but which, with little thought or effort, can be found on the internet.

“Plagiarism: Taking the work of another and representing it as your own.” Ron Forseth

It is very very tempting to use the internet to get a sermon. Taking a sermon from the internet is easy, it requires far less work, less inspiration, less Bible study, less research.

If you pretend such sermons are your own work you are a lying, stealing cheat. Don’t do it.
