I thought this post by Kevin DeYoung was very good. I know that I can think of times when I have posted something, or even re-posted something without fully vetting it out. I should know better of course. Anyone who has had false things spoken against them should know with even more clarity. One of the advantages in my case (I was told) was that my friends measured what they observed of my character against what they observed of my accuser’s character.
When we speak or write things against another person we rob them of their opportunity to have their side fairly represented. Where are our witnesses when we do this? In some cases the witness can be their own words if there is evidence, but in most cases, especially online, we rob them of their opportunity to defend themselves. I am thankful for this post. I pray that God will work in me to be very careful with anything that I may say against another person. Read, The God of Justice Hates False Reports by Kevin DeYoung
