Numbers 35:30 Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die.
God told Moses way back when how they were to treat criminals. They were to deal severely with murderers. They would be put to death but never were they to accept the testimony of one witness in a murder trial. They had to have at least two for almost all of their trials.
I should learn from that to be sure I have the facts before I make a decision. I shouldn’t just believe what someone tells me. That will limit the gossip will it not?
