False Accusations

When you stand for truth, some people will persecute you. Many will accept what you say and support you, but enemies will arise, but that can be a good thing. Do we believe the truth wholeheartedly that we will stand for it even when opposed?
Paul ran into that problem. A certain enemy talked against Paul before a Roman. The Jewish speaker said of Paul, “He even tried to profane the temple, and we seized him, and wanted to judge him according to our law. But the commander Lysias came by and with great violence took him out of our hands, commanding his accusers to come to you. By examining him yourself you may ascertain all these things of which we accuse him” (Acts 24:6-8).
Paul did not try to profane the temple, and the Jews did not seek to judge him according to their law, but sought violence against him, whereas the Romans sought to protect Paul. The speaker hardly said anything accurately.
Be prepared for something similar to happen to you. Just wait your turn, then in calmness state the way things are.
