A few words of scripture

Over recent weeks and months I have been concerned by matters, not of my own making. I have been trying to figure out why recently, some things are not adding up! What do I mean? Some folk who had been friendly in the past were dry and somewhat distant and 'other things not being what they seemed.
Tonight I visited Greenwell Presbyterian Church, I normally attend in the mornings with my wife and children, however being a somewhat troubled, I went to church on my own - really to think matters through, as I suspected that the tongue of slander has been busy in the background – with my professionalism being undermined and my character questioned.
The service was going well, and then the Minister read Romans Chapter 3 verse 9-19.

Romans 3 Verse 9 - 19 reads:-

9 What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. 19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Thankfully the penny has now dropped with me!
I am not one to quote from the Scriptures or use the Bible as a sword or shield - however words of wisdom were bequeathed upon me tonight.
