Crime is wrong..right?
Well.... what are the moral implications of certain crimes such as smuggling... Jesus said about paying taxes and such.
For the christians... would jesus be pissed for you smuggling tobacco and alcochol to avoid taxes and selling it.
For non christians and christians alike.... what are the moral implications of this?

depends what u're smuggling. is it blood diamonds to rich gangstas or stolen medical supplies to poor people who can't pay for them?
every case is different in some respect

moral implications would be based on how many people u hurt - more or less people = more or less damage... Matty / brother pug, if u really wanna understand the Bible u should do the spirit of what it says - " The man who two coats should share with the man who has none " etc.

Where does it say that.

Luke 3:11

"John answered, "Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same."

Crime shows you are concerned enuf about self benefit to break laws and risk legal penalties.

By default all crime is supposed to be interpreted as sumthin you do to better yourself that harms other people. That ain't always true tho. Some **** is illegal to do but don't necessarily endanger your fellow man.

Sumtimes the ends justify the means. Buyin weed to get high shouldn't be a crime. Neither should pimpin hoes. But PC society just is what it is.

IMO, not all "criminals" are lowlifes.
