Malice Against Ministries
Sadly, there are many who appear to have a ministry of criticism. The Bible warns us of those who "get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to." 1 Thessalonians 5:13. Why are there such an abundance of negative reports against ministers, ministries and missions? What does the Bible teach concerning gossip and slander? How should we as Christians respond to character assassination? How can we understand what is behind these campaigns? What can we do to help those who are targeted?
"Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander of every kind."
1 Peter 2:1
