Bribing People Not To Commit Crimes?

As I was reading this article about people being paid not to commit crimes, it reminded me of this article that I wrote about a local school district bribing students with a bicycle to induce good behavior.

My question is, has all common sense and sensibility gone out the window in our nation? Are we now bowing to the god of worldly success at all costs?

The training of our children to not commit crimes and to exhibit good behavior (including not cheating in academicsbegins in the home at an early age  not when they are grown men and women!

The training of our children not only begins in the home at an early age (Psalm 71:17; Ecclesiastes 12:1; Matthew 19:17-20; 1 Timothy 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:15), but includes biblical instruction and education from God's word (Ephesians 6:4 NET).

What's the bottom line? People won't have to be bribed not to commit crimes, "if" they have been instructed from God's word from their youth (2 Timothy 3:14-15 AMP).

Beloved, let's get back to the Bible, to God, and to moral sanity!
