A Life of Lies
by Rick Boxx
May 26, 2010
According to The Kansas City Star, Adam Wheeler was suspended from Bowdoin College for academic dishonesty. Rather than give up he moved on to Harvard, claiming a perfect SAT score, straight A's at a prestigious prep school and glowing recommendations from professors.
When Harvard accused him of plagiarizing the work of a professor, Adam left and applied to Yale. It was Yale's doubts about his falsified application that finally led to criminal charges and the unwinding of Mr. Wheeler's web of deception.
The Lord said in Jeremiah 17:9, "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?"
This life of lies will likely lead Mr. Wheeler to prison. Unfortunately, as stewards over our workplaces, we now have to lookout for deceivers like Mr. Wheeler.
