Slander divides the family of God and confuses the watching world. It’s rooted in our self-centeredness and we need to expose the darkness of this sin by holding it up to the light of God’s Word. We talk about saying no to slander on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!
The Christian life involves a constant battle against sin. Christians are often guilty of “respectable” sins that may not seem gross by the world’s standards, but about which the Bible speaks quite strongly. As Alistair Begg continues our study in James, we see how far short we fall of God’s perfect standard. God’s law reveals that we are desperately proud, prone to controversy and slander, and often inclined to mismanage our time and money. This wonderfully practical study reminds us of our great need of a Savior and points us to the Cross, where we find complete forgiveness and peace. Having peace with God compels us to resist these sins as God draws us ever closer to Himself.

We might pay dearly for such presumption. This lion may cross our path or leap upon us from the jungle, but we have ...
