In reference to being a tattletale, team player or simply doing what is right:
1. It is a good practice to always tell the truth and more so as a Christian. It might not be good for you in the long run but eventually, if it is a big enough issue, will become a subject to the rest of the people to make changes for the better.
2. There is a difference if between someone who is a team player and on who is a whistleblower. In social-business environments, a team player that might “take one for the team” is still a cover-up whilst a whistleblower is someone who acts upon the ethical observance of the issue(s) without heeding precautions of the final outcome to themselves or others.
a. There can and will be times that someone can be both a whistleblower and a team player. For example, if there are five people in a team and three of them take notice to a deficiency in the process(s), maybe even caused by one or both of the other two, the remaining three can talk about the issue and one person from the three can be the spokesperson and address the unethical process.
3. I will always consider being the confronting member and report any immoral issues at hand. I have done it in the past and will continue to do so. Consequences have varied from positive outcomes to being shunned, mistreated, and physically threatened. The final determining factor is that I am a proud Christian and if I do not state the issue, the ultimate being I will have to face, following my own realization of my flaw, is God Himself. I do not want to be in that predicament in order to save my own behind and possibly receive benefit from it. I take a stance in defying the “CYOA” rule in not only business and also in personal relationships. It is part of our call to righteousness.
