Gossip by Makaeyla Z.


By Makaeyla Z. 

Gossip. It's stupid, but we all knew that. It's a sin; that's not new. It ruins countless friendships. I'm sure we've all had our fair share.There isn't much we don't already know about gossip; it's been around since the beginning of time.

We know it's a sin and we know it's one of the ten commandments to not commit false doctrine, which includes lies and gossip. Wait a minute! If one of the commandments covers not gossiping, and another is to not murder, then wouldn't that mean that gossip is JUST as bad as murder?

When we hear that we think "Wait a second, that's not possible. Talking about someone doesn't come close to killing them!" But there we are wrong. We are killing them emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It hurts to be talked about, whether it's true or not.

This is just going to be quick, but I'll leave you with this. The Bible says Satan is the father of all lies (gossip) - think about that... do you want to be associated with Satan? I sure don't.
