Where do we draw the line of moral obligation and minding our own business? Here is my struggle.
Please know this is laying hard on my soul. At a far distance I know of someone who skirts around the law. They dont play by the rules and they have not paid a tax that other law abiding citizen in our area must. Who knows how many other persons avoid and manipulate their circumstance to cover up not paying it. My problem is I know someone who isnt.
I do not speak to this person because I will not subject myself to their wrath if I were to call them on what they are not doing.
Do I report what I know is true, or do I let it go? In reporting this I would strongly guess a huge can of worms would come to the surface and a laundry list of other fraud would surface. It is so difficult to sit back when I know that this is going on.
This is not just someone taking an apple from a grocery store and putting in their pocket because they are hungry.
What is my moral obligation and why am I having such a hard time with being silent? Maybe my answer lays within my last sentence. SNOWHITE you are having a hard time with this because you do have an moral obligation to report fraud of any kind if you strongly believe it is going on, no matter who it is.
Can someone offer help and maybe scripture reference on our duty as citizens? Or a Saint I can pray for guidence and support. If I do report this person will point the finger back and all *** will break loose.
