Accusations against anyone regarding sexual sins are serious. But we must also acknowledge that equally serious in God’s eyes are false accusations. As such, we must handle these situations with much wisdom.
Deut. 19:15-20 says at least two witnesses are needed to establish facts, and it also says that a false witness is to be punished with the same punishment as the accused would have faced, if guilty:
“One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.”
In this 22-minute interview, we discuss how these principles apply to allegations raised against Judge Roy Moore, a US Senate Candidate well-known for his refusal to tear down a monument to the 10 commandments in his courtroom and also refusing to comply with an order to issue same-sex “marriage” licenses in 2016. Our interview features Jason Storms, who is a minister of evangelism with Mercy Seat Christian Church in Milwaukee, WI.
