A friend was discussing a situation where some folks at their church, who are always painting themselves to be extraordinary Christians, were actually bringing down a fellow church member’s reputation.  Their plot is quite extraordinary, and so masterfully disguised that others would not recognize their actions.  How sad… How cruel…  But, in the end, the justice will be served.

James 1:26 ESV

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.
