Gossip and Slander are tricks of Satan

Posted by Al Hathaway Monday, November 29, 2010

"Do not go about spreading slander among your people." Leviticus 19:16


One of the deceptive tricks of Satan is to foster gossip and slander among people of faith about each other. When one spreads gossip or slander you emit a threefold poison: it injures the teller, the hearer, and the object of the gossip or slander. Whether the report is true or false, we are forbidden by God's word to spread it. The reputations of the Lord's people should be very precious in our sight, and we should consider it shameful to help the devil to dishonor the church, the name of the Lord and God's people by engaging in gossip and slander.

Let this be our family rule and personal agreement - Slander no one!
