In the years gone by, we saw the Michael Jackson trial and also observed the problems with Penn State. Valuable lessons are to be learned from each case and they are:
Do all you can to avoid becoming addicted to prescription drugs, drinking, smoking, overeating, insomnia, etc. etc. (1 Corinthians 6:12, 9:27).
Never allow yourself to desire money to the point of becoming unethical (1 Timothy 6:6-10; Proverbs 15:27; 2 Cor. 8:21).
Say no, when asked to assist in wrong doing (1 Tim. 5:22).
If you see someone attacking a helpless soul, do something to stop the attack or call authorities (1 Thessalonians 5:14-15). Don’t place a friend above what is right (James 4:4; Galatians 4:16). Doing things not appropriate is always forbidden (Colossians 4:5).
Don’t be a part of any group that has a code of silence protecting themselves and caring nothing for the helpless and innocent (Prov. 6:16-17).
Make sure that when you do something that you do all you can and leave nothing undone (Matthew 27:65; Acts 20:26-27).
The bigger they are, the harder they fall and great will be that fall (Psalm 38:35-36; Matt. 7:26-27; Gal. 6:7-8; Prov. 26:27).
