Defamation of Character Tactic

How is it that almost every person who leaves Calvary Temple is either in rebellion, deceived, or cast away? If this is true than how can anyone be truly saved without the teachings of Pastor Scott? Thanks to pulpit “damage control” and “unofficial” leaks you find out that someone who was part of the body of Christ and a dear friend 24 hours ago is now to be avoided at all costs. The tactic presented here is clear and simple: it is defamation of character. When someone leaves the church there is quite often a good reason, but the pastors don’t want truth to be known.

This cannot be spelled out any clearer in the Scriptures; it is completely unjustified to defame a brother or sister in Christ. James 4:11 says, “Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.” According to the Online Dictionary, defamation of character is “the action of damaging the good reputation of someone; slander or libel, and induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable feelings against an individual.”

(For other Scripture references refuting this tactic see 2 Corinthians 12:20 and 1 Peter 2:1)

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
