KGB. For this, H.A.R. (Kim) Philby has been called “the Napoleon of

> According to Psalm 15:3, one sign of a true follower of Christ is “He does not
backbite with his tongue.” The word used here comes from a root signifying
foot, and denotes a person who goes from place to place, speaking things he
should not. A word from this root signifies spies, speaking of those who pry
into secrets about others, and oftentimes represent them in a false light.

be in the society of saints, or in a church of Christ.”

said, “Please, sir, they converted my wife. Before she went among them, she
had such a tongue! But now she is as quiet as a lamb.” “Take them back,” said
the magistrate, “and let them convert all the scolds in the parish!”3
