Aloha Friday!

An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

MY QUESTION:
There is a saying "It is never right to do wrong to do right". I am an avid Biggest Loser watcher lol and this week I observed something that disturbed me. Ron(a contestant) lied at the voting table so that his son would be closer to winning the competition. So bringing back the quote...Do you believe that it is ever "right to do wrong to do right"?

My ANSWER:
No. I don't believe in compromising myself or other's to accomplish something for myself. I also believe that your "sin" will find you out. I don't need to rely on myself to do something wrong in order for a good outcome, I can rely on the Lord to take care of me! He doesn't need my help :)

No - it is not fair to anyone else to behave in such a manner!! And it will probably end up biting him in the end!!

Sadly, these television shows are a game. True, they involve real people and what not, but once on them most people act quite differently. Is it right, no. No doubt what Ron did and what Mike said will bite them in the rear.

It is a hard thing to resist when you want to help someone you love. I do believe it's wrong, but I'm not perfect.

Cathi said...

It's never good to lie or compromise yourself. Never.
I was terribly disappointed in Ron. I’m glad that the show let us know what he did.

Like angelForever said it's a game and that just how things go but I do feel that this will back fire! I didnt like how mike just "knows he is going to win" lol I am a tara fan btw!

A Psych Mommy said...

I didn't see the episode, but I agree that it's wrong. I'm sure it will come around and hurt him more than help him

Heather, aka Jake's Mommy said...

I don't feel like it's ever really worth it to knowingly do wrong. Karma will definitely come back and get ya tenfold.

NateAndJakesMom said...

I guess I will be the bad guy... I think that there is always a special circumstance for anything. If it was to protect my children I think I would do whatever was needed.

I didn't see that episode YET. DVR'd it...

Kim said...

No, I don't believe it is right. But I'm not going to say that, if a serious enough situation arose, I wouldn't be tempted to do it for my husband or my children.

I agree with Tara's reply. Very good thinking

I didn't watch the Biggest Loser this season but I have in the past.

When they do things that aren't very nice, they are just playing the game. This is one of the things that I don't like about the show. They can never trust each other, even when they say they are friends, they must play the game.

I know it would be hard when it comes to your children...but I don't think lying is every smart.

Erin @ Closing Time said...

It is never right to lie, even if it is for a good cause!

Jennifer said...

Absolutely not.

Happy Aloha Friday! =)

While I agree with you that it is never right to do wrong - no matter the reasons behind it. I think it is a very human impulse to do something like lie to help out your kid.

Jaime said...

i didn't see the end of the biggest loser this week so i'm not sure what happened... but sometimes you need to do a little wrong to get to the right result. it's not all black and white. there's a whole lot of gray in that answer.

Gena said...

I am a HUGE Tara fan. I was not surprised what Ron did. I personally would have owned up to it. He was going to have to choose her or his son eventually. He just did it sooner. I think in a reality game you tend to lose yourself in it. Kinda sad. But I love it. I also think Ron is trying so hard for Mike because he blames himself.

Melinda said...

while I strongly believe in Karma I also would do anything in my power to protect and do better for my kids and family. the Biggest Loser is a contest so I understand doing what you need to do to get ahead(or to get someone else ahead)

I am Harriet said...

Honesty seems to work best for me. I believe in Karma.

Brea's Mommy said...

No the truth always comes out in the end so I think that the best thing to do is nip it in the bud and deal with it from the get go!

Our Family said...

I believe very simply put: doing wrong is never right. God may choose to use a wrong behavior for a better outcome, but the one doing the wrong will still be accountable for his own actions.

Pamela Kramer said...

Well what he did was keep his word not to write her name but....we all know that he gave his son the go ahead! Do what you have to do. I was a little shocked when I saw that. I agree with you. Your character really does mean everything.

AJ @ A Little Bit Nutty said...

I don't believe it's right either...but when you love someone sometimes you do stupid things to help them out. I know I would do anything for my kids.

Under no circumstances it is okay to lie. I am sure there are times when lying makes it much easier, but sometimes we have to take the harder road in life!

Baba said...

Lying or cheating is never right and will come back to haunt you later. Thanks for stopping in at Babasfarmlife and commenting. Hope your Mother's Day is a fabulous one.

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
