Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. – James 4:11 (James 4:11-12)
Do not slander a feller mate. Anyone who speaks against his mate, speaks against Skipper’s Code of Conduct.
Anyone who judges his mate, judges against Skipper’s Code of Conduct.
When ya judge Skip’s Code, ya not be keeping ter his words of Conduct. Instead ya be sitting in judgement on Skip’s law and ordinances, precepts and statutes.
Thar be only one Lawgiver and that not be us.
Thar be only one Judge and that not be us.
Thar be only one able ter both save and destroy and that not be us.
We be not tha Lawgiver or Judge or tha one who kin save or destroy. If that be tha case, we best not presume ter judge our neighbor. That be Skip’s job and his alone.
