Is this stealing?


#1

I was on an online game where you trade things and someone was selling somthing for a price and he got of gotten a better deal if he traded someone else in the deal but he traded me for less stuff. Is this stealing?


#2

Not if you were truthful about what you are trading.

Bartering is permitted as long as you are truthful about what are trading and not deceiving those who trade with about the quality and details of what you are trading.

No, I don’t think that’s stealing at all. If that were stealing, all of Wall Street would be in jail right now.

Nope. It’s just business. It’s not sinful to make a profit or get a bargain.
