But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
The worst thing that bothers us is when people say bad things about you and lie about you without doing anything wrong. But no one has the courage to come forward and talk face to face. The sad thing is that more people believe what they hear and read to be true. A period of not being able to recognize what is true or who is lying. We can never compete with these people who lie because they are cowards.
If you ask me how to answer all this, I don’t know, but there is one thing that the Bible says…
Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse. Proverbs 19:1
So my answer is to walk away without saying anything to those who lie about me, those who portray me badly behind my back, and those who hurt me.
