Slander – Should I Retaliate?

In removal of it, it is best to deal with God about it; for God is the great witness of our sincerity, as knowing all things; and so to be appealed to in the case. Again, God is the most powerful asserter of our innocency; He has the hearts and tongues of men in His own hands, and can either prevent the slanderer from uttering reproach, or the hearer from the entertainment of the reproach. He that hath such power over the consciences of men can clear up our innocency; therefore it is best to deal with God about it; and prayer many times proves a better vindication than an apology.

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
(Matthew 5:11)

  1. Been dealing with this myself and it’s best to say what needs to be said and settle with the fact any grain of truth God will deal with the person. Funny thing is when proclaiming the Gospel it’s His words if the Bible backs it up and God gives the increase. I believe we make it our works if we keep pushing the issue.
