For there are two sides to slander – There is the making or repeating of it, and there is the listening to it and acting upon it.
The slanderer would be powerless without a listener.
Evil words require an ear that is receptive to evil in which they may fall.
Before evil words can flourish; therefore, he who listens to a slander, who believes it, and allows himself to be influenced by the person whose character and reputation are defamed is the same position as the one who framed or repeated the evil report.
The evil-speaker is a positive slanderer; the evil-listener is a passive slanderer.
The two are cooperators in the propagation of evil.
Word of the week – Propagation – the breeding of specimens of a plant or animal by natural processes from the parent stock.
Ask yourself: Where do you fit in this house of slander?
