|NASB||Exodus 23:1 "You shall not bear a false report; do not join your hand with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.|
|Exodus 23:1 "You shall not give a false report; you shall not join hands with the wicked to be a malicious witness [promoting wrong and violence].|
|Subject: False Witness|
Bible Note: Exodus 23:1-2 (NKJV)
1 "You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.
We have all heard falsehoods, half truths, out right lies about other Christian denominations and theological positions. That happens and is to be expected in a world tainted with sin.
The problem becomes personal when we start such lies or we repeat them. I never understood how a so called Christian could participate in such activity, did they not fear God?
Some willing participate because it supports or reinforces an existing prejudice they have, they dislike something so much that when presented with such a lie they justify repeating by reasoning it could be true.
Iâ€™m sure there are others that simply donâ€™t know what they believe is false but some claim to have done extensive research and have proof but when confronted to produce that proof they canâ€™t.
They then use various methods to smoke screen the fact they canâ€™t provide proof, this appears as sarcasm, insults, mockery, and even censorship. This makes the matter even worst.
Is this really what the Church of Jesus Christ has become? Is this how we treat each other? Is this really, doing unto others as we would have them do unto us.
Think about it.
