“They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed” (Titus 1:16).
Plagiarizing is a kind of theft; taking someone’s words or ideas as if they were your own. For students it can result in expulsion and a tarnished reputation. Spiritual plagiarism is of far greater consequence. To steal a confession of faith, in the absence of a supporting walk of faith, is to be denied entry into the hallowed halls of eternal life. Religious rhetoric is a far cry from real faith.
