Most, if not all, are guilty of slander, a sin which should be taken very seriously. The Bible calls those who spread slander “foolish” and warns that we will all have to answer for each careless word spoken. Alistair Begg offers hope in ridding ourselves of this sin: look to the grace extended to us at the cross, and we will begin to see ourselves as no better than anyone else.
11Do not speak evil against one another, brothers.4 The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
