“The Sin of Threatening”

The Sin of Threatening

Topic: Hamartiology

The word apeileo means to threaten, and is used twice in the New Testament. In both instances it is cited as a sinful kind of behavior. When the Jewish leaders were trying to shut down the apostles early in the book of Acts, one of the means they tried was that of threats. ‘But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name’ (Acts 4:17). And Jesus, when He was being abused by the religious authorities, refused to respond to them in kind. ‘For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously’ (1 Pet. 2:21–23).

“Bad Men With Shovels”

Bad Men With Shovels

‘Does Moses prevail too much in the hearts of the people? Something must be found against him. If we can find nothing against him, yet we will find something against his wife . . . But now we are resolved to pick out whatever we can get information of, though it is about things done many years ago, when they were in the university, when they lived in such or such places in times of old. If it will serve our turn, we may fasten it upon them. Proverbs 16:27: “An ungodly man diggeth up evil, and in his lips there is a burning fire.” If he has nothing above ground, he will dig something up, though it is what, both by God and man, has been buried long since’ (Burroughs, Irenicum, p. 243).
