Establishing the Truth

The Lord warned that one witness was not enough to put someone to death, “Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness” (Deuteronomy 17:6).
Simply because several people say that the accused did something wrong, does not mean they witnessed the event. Often it happens that one person says something, and others pick up on it, and so it seems that most people believe it, and that convinces the masses that the accused truly committed the crime.
Gossip does not establish the truth about someone’s behavior. Yet, this happens frequently in the church.
Do not believe everything you hear.
