Six Reasons People Slander

What is slander? Why do people want to slander other people?

Chelsea and I look at some Bible verses and stories to find at least six reasons people slander others:

  1. To enrich themselves (Proverbs 21:6; 20:17; Haman)
  2. To satisfy envy (Joseph’s brothers)
  3. To cover up wrongdoing or shift blame (Potiphar’s wife)
  4. To conceal hateful motives or weakness (Proverbs 10:18)
  5. To damage or destroy opponents (Psalm 31:13; 1 Samuel 24:9; the Ammonites against David)
  6. To fight against truth (Psalm 31:18; 52:3; 64:3-4; Jeremiah 9:4-5)
