Gossip cause harm because of the underlying purpose of tearing someone down. True Love does not dishonour others (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) but helps to build them up and encourage them (Ephesians 4:29). When people take part in rumors, they choose to dishonour someone and cause strife which is inherently against the nature and will of God.”
The thing with gossip and malicious slander is that 99% of the time the origin is someone that knows us, a friend, family member or colleague.
It’s adding insult to injury, because we deal with betrayal as well.
I don’t have to tell you about the effects gossip can have on someone’s life, I think we all have experienced or heard about the absolute devastation that can occur when gossip does its worst.
People have lost their livelihoods, their family’s and relationships and sometimes even their lives as a result.
Keeping true to the topic of Spiritual Warfare, I want us to look at gossip from a different perspective, the biblical perspective spiritual warfare perspective.
