Why People Gossip...Printable Copy

2 Timothy 3:1-5
New International Verison(NIV)

Godlessness in the Last Days
1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Godó 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.



1) Pride

2) Anger & Bitterness

3) Low Self Esteem

4) Purposeful attempt to destroy someone

5) Influence (peer pressure)

Gossip is a divider, destroyer, and discourager.  Proverbs 20:19, Proverbs 11:13, Ephesians 4:29

Yet Psalm 19:14 is the key to battling gossip...  Gossip has no place in the Christian's life!

James 3:10
New International Version(NIV)

10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.
