In a period of loose and sagging morals, Satan provides many rationalizations for improper behavior. Those who will live faithful Christian lives must not be "ignorant" of his "devices" (2 Cor. 2:11). Wrong is always wrong, despite our efforts to excuse our actions.
    Wrong Is Wrong, Even If You Don't Get Caught. We need to remember that "the eyes of the Lord are in ev...ery place beholding the evil and the good" (Prov. 15:13)
    Wrong is Wrong, Even If You Do It For A Good Cause. The honorable purpose does not justify a dishonorable deed or action. The end never justifies the means. All sin is transgression of the law (1 Jn. 3:4,5; 5:17; 2 Jn. 9).
    Wrong Is Wrong, Even If Others Are Doing Worse Things. It will be little comfort for you in the Day of Judgment if you should be lost, knowing that others did the things which you considered to be worse than your sins. Remember, "the thought of sin is foolishness" (Prov. 22:9).
    Wrong Is Wrong, Even If It Doesn't Bother Your Conscience. The conscience can be trained or educated to accept wrong-doing, and even "honest sin" or "evil done in sincerity" is sinful in the sight of the holy God (Matt. 7:21-23; Acts 23:1; Prov. 28:26). Paul said, "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap" (Gal. 6:7).
    Wrong Is Wrong, Even If It's Commonly Considered Acceptable. The Bible says, "Thou shalt not follow a multitude into the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it and pass away" (Prov. 4:4,5; Matt. 7:13-14).
