Ok, in another thread we were talking about a specific case in which many thought there was a cover-up. But I want this to be about the idea of covering up in general. I should think that as Christians we would try to cover up a thing as much as possible. I mean we do not need to drag all this stuff out into the open and tell everyone forever what happened. For example, is it a "cover up" if I am not told exactly why the former president of my college resigned recently? And actually why the man before him left as well? What about this stuff going on in Bob Gray's church right now? People are crying "cover up" about that, too. What if a church leadership deals with a problem Biblically, the sin is confessed and dealt with. Is the leadership required to tell everyone everything from that moment on? We have a man in our church who was caught in sin years and years ago. It was handled Biblically, he is no longer in the same position he had had before, but he does now have a ministry in our church. Not everyone knows about this. Are we doing a cover up here? I don't think so. I think there is a point where these verses kick in. Pr 10:12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. Pr 17:9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
