    Thank you Warqar Daniel, for posting this. This is a great lesson and should be studied. We are servants of CHRIST, and as HIS servants we should act according to our MASTER'S WILL. Acting in a way that is considered slanderous, is not acting as a CHRISTIAN shoud act. We should gaurd our heart, and fill it with the LOVE of JESUS, and not habour hatred or evil as what is found in our hearts, becomes evident within our speach.

    Where does slander come from? The scripture you have given is very appropriate:

    Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

    So, slander comes from an evil heart. Futhermore, what is abundant in our heart, os also made know from our own mouths.

    What does Proverbs, say about our mouths?

    Proverbs 4:24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

    Proverbs 6:2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

    Proverbs 8:7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

    Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

    Proverbs 10:6 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

    Proverbs 10:11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

    Proverbs 10:31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

    Proverbs 11:9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

    Proverbs 11:11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

    Proverbs 12:6 The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.

    Proverbs 13:2 A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

    Proverbs 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

    Proverbs 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

    Proverbs 15:2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

    Proverbs 15:14 The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

    Proverbs 15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!

    Proverbs 15:28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

    Proverbs 16:10 A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.

    Proverbs 16:23 The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

    Proverbs 16:26 He that laboureth laboureth for himself; for his mouth craveth it of him.

    Proverbs 18:4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

    Proverbs 18:6 A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes. 7 A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

    Proverbs 18:20 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

    Proverbs 19:24 A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.

    Proverbs 19:28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.

    Proverbs 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

    Proverbs 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

    Proverbs 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

    Proverbs 30:32 If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.

    Proverbs 31:8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

    Proverbs 31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

    Proverbs 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

    Proverbs 10:18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.

    A Christian's tongue should act like this:
    The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life (Proverbs 10:11)

    Reckless words pierce like a sword but the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18)

    A fool's talk brings a rod to his back but the lips of the wise protect them (Proverbs 14:3)

    Pleasant words are a honeycomb to the soul and healing to the bones (Proverbs 16:24)

    God bless you and your family

    If we will remember the verse that tells us to think on things that are pure, lovely and of good report....it will keep us from falling into the trap of slander. I'm not saying this is easy, because it is not. It is a daily challenge. Even years later, I STILL have to give this area my concentration to keep from getting off of the path of the walk of love.
