We’re often accused of slander by supporters of TB Joshua. Below is a quote from an excellent article studying what the bible actually says about slander and how the term is often applied inappropriately. The article is entitled “Slander or an Inconvenient Truth?“.
It is vital to the discussion to understand that slander is an act of making a false statement in order to damage another’s reputation, etc. It is a big fat lie, and the person making it knows it, just as Satan knows it.
Therefore, the expression of a legitimate concern, based on a number of reports, is not slander but a form of Christian love. It is meant to protect the church from serious error; to help those who are being hurt by the church; to prevent harm to others in the church; and to exhort those in leadership to follow the example of Jesus.
