The Gossip and The Gospel

In our world there are two different types of sayings the truths or the untruths, which I like to call the Gossip and the Gospel. For those who do not know the meaning of this, I'll explain it too you. The gossip is rumors, lies and untruths people spread everyday. These rumors, lies and untruths are being passed on as the truth. These rumors, lies or untruths destroys people lives and lead people astray.The gossip has been known to break up marriages, family's, cause some to lose their jobs and can even have some church going folks, believing the wrong things about our Father in Heaven. Yes, there happen to be some Pastors, Preachers or Priest spreading lies,then giving false teachings or lectures about the bible and our Lord Jesus Christ. Its seems some people in the world today would rather tell a lie , than tell the truth. To me that's funny, because like my mother used to say," Once you tell one lie ,you have to keep on telling lies". Another thing my mother used to say is ,"That the truth shall set you free". She would say even if you have to hurt someone feelings its always better to tell the truth than a lie. Because even though the truth my hurt, a lie breaks peoples heart and cause much pain. Now to me, my mother was speaking the gospel, because there is nothing but truth ,fact, wisdom and God-fearing knowledge in those words.

 You can always spot people who spread lies or untruths, because they are always gossiping about something. Groups of them gather everyday, talking about one person one day and talking about another person another day. It seems these people lives are only complete if they can talk about somebody then criticize, complain or gossip. They live the life of a liar, complainer,criticizer and a gossiper. These people seem happy , but in truth they are unhappy because they have no life of their own. But if they found Jesus! Then they would learn its better to spread Gods good word, the gospel, the truth and the way. Gods word is full of truth, knowledge and good news. In God's word, there is wisdom , hope and healing. The gospel teaches us all the right way to live our lives, there are no untruths, no broken promises and God's true people never spread lies. God's people encourage and never puts people down. When God's people talk about their fellow Saints, its only to give them  praise and to thank Jesus for rescuing another lost soul. So if you hear someone gossiping, complaining or telling lies, turn away and say I only want to hear the gospel, because its full of, the truth, Gods word and praise.

 My advice to anyone that may read this if you happen to have a problem with the people you love or know, instead of talking about them behind their back confront them in person. Tell them whats on your heart or whats on your mind and if by some chance it doesn't produce results, then leave them in the hands of God. Also its never wise to listen or to entertain rumors. Why? Because most rumors are filled with many untruths or lies. Take this next sentence to heart, gossiping, spreading rumors or telling lies is a sin. In the end it will be you that will be judged not only by your actions, but also by what you speak or say.
Have a very blessed day,
Proverbs 20:19
A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.
Proverbs 26:20
Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down.
Romans 15:16
To be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles with the priesty duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God,sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
