False Accusations

October 18, 2019 0 Comments

Our political world today is filled with false accusations. The Democrats are obsessed with finding something they can use to impeach our President, and have come up with all sorts of false reports and rumors that fit in with their preconceived opinion that he is guilty of some great crime. They are trying desperately to make the facts fit the outcome they want.

Further, the "me too" movement has one very scary aspect to it. While we certainly should listen to a woman who claims to be sexually attacked, we know from news reports that certain accusations that have been made are fabricated. Just think of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, the accusations leveled against the Duke lacrosse team, the Jesse Smollet case, etc. Unfortunately, in the current climate of our world, the judicial principle that a man is innocent until proven guilty no longer applies. How many reputations have been ruined by such slander and false reporting?

In such a world as ours, it is good to be reminded that Jesus knows what it is like to be falsely accused. "Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death" (Matt. 27:59). The Lord understands what it means to be unfairly charged, to be slandered, to be lied against. Down through history, many innocent people have been put to death (mainly Christians!) because of false accusations.

That is why the 9th commandment of the OT Law states: "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor" (Ex. 20:16). Somebody should print that verse in large letters and carry it into one of these bogus Democrat committee hearings. What a bunch of hypocritical liars that are serving as our representatives in Congress.
