Case study: Frederick is a student at Central Fictional State University (CFSU), and he has a great idea for a new business invention. Frederick's invention and the business that he plans to found based upon it will absolutely revolutionize the market and will make him very rich. He decides to share his idea with a few of his professors, and he even uses the idea in a research project for one of his classes. Frederick is a new Christian, but his professors at CFSU are not Christians.
While Frederick is at home over summer break he discovers, much to his dismay, that his professors have stolen his idea and have opened a business marketing his new invention. Upon making this discovery, Frederick immediately seeks the advice of the local lawyer who has a reputation for being a “scorched-earth” litigator. Needless to say, this Rambo, “take-no-prisoners” lawyer is not a Christian. He advises Frederick that he should sue the professors "for everything they’ve got.”
Assume Frederick comes to you for advice from a Christian perspective. He knows the Bible says something about “love your neighbor” and “turn the other cheek” and “do not resist an evil-doer,” but he is just not sure how to make sense of all of this. What is your answer to Frederick?
