What makes you a slanderer is not that you criticized JD, but that you did so publicly. If a pastor learns a member is struggling with something like sexual immorality, should he blab it to his congregation in his next weeks' sermon? Or should he personally approach him to warn him of his sin? There lies the line between slander and constructive criticism. Secondly, since he is a Southern Baptist and he has been watched/heard 46k+ times, wouldn't at least 2 in 46 listeners be of his own denomination? Secondly, does it matter what denomination they are since we are all a part of the Body of Christ?

First, how is it prideful to acknowledge the number of listeners expected for a week? Is that not a miracle from God that a small church could have that many listeners? Is that not worthy of praising God? Secondly, what good can it do to spread dissension of another believer among the believing community? If you have an issue with a pastor, communicate it with him to better his service instead of spreading gossip about a man preaching the Word of God. The purpose of this post is not for the betterment of the Gospel, it is slander. "Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind." 1 Peter 2:1 "Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?" James 4:11-13
