The Ten Commandments Past and Present — The Ninth Commandment (Part 2)

In this sermon, Pastor Babij looks again at the ninth of the Ten Commandments (“You shall not bear false witness”), focusing on gossip as a form of lying. Pastor Babij explains three important truths from Scripture about gossip:

1) The gossip’s character
2) The gossip’s motive
3) The results of gossip

Pastor Babij shows from Scripture that the Lord hates gossip. Pastor then gives several key applications for Christians:

• Avoid all unwholesome words
• Practice edifying communication
• Ask yourself questions before speaking
• Learn the positive power of the tongue

The best use of Christian’s words is to give the good news of the Gospel.
