Upon Jesus’ discourse in the Sermon on the Mount, He begins to deal with further issues of the heart, the first being ‘murder in the heart.’ Jesus does not hold back in the slightest when dealing with unrighteous anger and hatred. Four times Jesus warns of hell as the appropriate punishment for such a heart crime. As Christians, we are to avoid at all costs a slanderous and gossiping spirit and strive to maintain unity and love with other believers; it’s a matter of eternal life and eternal punishment.
