The title of this post comes from Exodus 20:16. This is a reminder of what we are commanded not to do. When we spread lies and Gossip about other people, we are in fact “Bearing False Witness”. This is a sin and will not go unpunished, unless whoever is doing this repents.
What the Lord Hates
16 The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to Him:
17 arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil,
19 a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
“Standing On The Promises”
