Some TV ministries say we are *not* to
defend ourselves when falsely accused
as Jesus did not when Pilate questioned
Him. Is this true? (I don't know of
any other verses that are clear on this
topic) Supposedly when we do, God will not defend us. I'm concerned as I'm
involved in a legal matter where I've
been (falsely) accused of causing "trouble". I responded, pointing
out that I've had ZERO contact with the
individual making this claim and enumerated several things I'd done in their behalf PRIOR to this false accusation. I then requested that without specific incident their lawyer refrain from such labels. WAS I WRONG
and now IN THIS -ALONE- as God will no
longer defend me even though I am innocent??
Bible Answer: Hi Starfire,
Act 26:2 "I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:"
Paul cherished that he was able to answer against the false accusations made against him.
Matt 10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
God promises in some situations to give us the very words to say.
The Lord has also promise that He will never forsake us.
Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
I think some TV ministries might not be giving either a full or correct view.
I hope this helps!
Love in Christ,
