Signing people into lectures when they’re not there is something I don’t do. I have never asked anyone to sign me in, and it’s something I don’t feel comfortable doing because
A) It’s a fitness to practise issue and
B) It is dishonest.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not judging people who sign others in, that is none of my business, but personally (and I emphasise this), PERSONALLY, I won’t do it because as someone who calls herself a follower of Jesus, lying is something I can’t do.
“Oh get over it, it’s not really a big deal,” you might be thinking, but to me it is, and according to the Bible, it isn’t okay. I’m not claiming to be a saint or trying to give across the impression that I never lie or do anything wrong; ofcourse I do, no one is perfect. What I’m trying to say is that I try my best not to, and that means avoiding situations that might make this tricky for me.
So what do I do when one of my closest friends texts me to sign her in because she overslept? That was hard for me, a very tough decision.
After much internal debate… I said no. I told her that I don’t feel comfortable doing that, and hopefully she knows me well enough to understand. I really hope she does.
