One of the worst things any member of any church can do is to spread gossip. A small church not far from us is absolutely eat up with this sin and no one seems to step up to the plate and say enough is enough. By this I mean, when the gossip flows everyone just adds their little twist to it and spreads it on. Seems to me that someone in the chain should say, "No, I don't want to hear it". But that doesn't happen. If any member of any church is willing to spread gossip why is it that no one in leadership has enough back bone to stand in opposition with it? Little people with little minds not interested at all with the terrible consequences of the end result of their malicious gossip. It's an absolute travesty, cruel, hateful and so destructive. People need to learn to keep their mouths shut!!! If one is not interested in helping a member that's in trouble then why talk about 'em? ...makes me sick!
