“She runs around on him every night,” the girl whispered to all of her friends;
The lies that she told spread much faster than fire though the woman worked nights to contend.
Beware, rumor monger, the truth do you plunder!
Deceit is your game, sowing lies meant to maim;
Such falsehoods will tear you asunder!
“He does abortions, that doctor right there,” said the man from the side of his mouth;
He wanted to slander the good doctor’s name just because the man hailed from the South.
Beware with your slur, God’s wrath you’ll incur!
Your words vilify, the facts you belie;
You’ll be cast out like some loathsome burr!
“Look at that pastor, I know he does drugs,” murmured she at the back of the church;
Her dishonesty cost him his status and job all because of her slanderous smirch.
Go away from our midst, you’ll never be missed!
Hell will be your next home, you’ll eternally roam;
That’s your fate lest you cease and desist!
Repent from your sins, surrender your will, look to Jesus and start to believe;
Admit you’re a sinner and go to the cross, that’s the one place you’ll get a reprieve.
A slanderous tongue turns the truth into dung;
It is better that you slice your tongue through and through!
1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.
2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,
brutal, without love for what is good,
4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures
rather than lovers of God,
5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.
Avoid these people!”
2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
