  2. Jas 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
    Read the first few chapters of 2 Samuel & see what David thought of those critical of Gods people. This entire web-site reads like your father the “accuser of the brethren”. Go rescue souls & stop dividing the body!
