Title: Slander – An Act of Hate and Not of Love
Scripture for the day
Colossians 3:8-11 (RKJNT) But now put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and filthy speech from your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of the one who created him. 11 Here there is neither Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian or Scythian, slave or free: but Christ is all, and in all.
[‘blasphemy’ (KJV); ‘slander’ (NASB)]
Thought for the day
(excerpts from “Slander…”)
In this study we will review nine Greek words used in the Scriptures related to slander.
Titus 3:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, 2 to slander no one, to avoid fighting, and to be kind, always showing gentleness to all people. 3 For we too were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved by various passions and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, detesting one another.
[NOTE: verse 2 ‘slander no one’ (NIV) – ‘speak evil of’ (KJV, RKJNT and NKJV); ‘never talking trash about anyone for any reason’ (GOGIC)]
Blasphemeo (blas-fay-meh’-o) v. 1. to vilify 2. (specially) to speak irreverently; 3. to slander, hence to speak lightly or profanely of sacred things.
