Untitled Sermon (4)
The Bible has much to say about slander. The Old Testament denounces the sin of slandering God or men more often than it does any other sin. In Leviticus 19:16, God commands His people, “You shall not go about as a slanderer among your people.” It is the mark of a godly man that “he does not slander with his tongue” (Ps. 15:3); it is the mark of the wicked that they do slander others (Ps. 50:19–20; Jer. 6:28; 9:4; Rom. 1:30).
