What does the Bible say about gossiping?"Remember gossip is as sinful as murder and will suffer the same consequences unless there is repentance (Romans 1:32). Remember God holds you accountable to your words (Matthew 12:36-37). Gossip & slander disqualifies persons for spiritual leadership (1 Timothy 3:11, James 3:2). The person who gossips to you about others, also gossips to others about you. Gossip often masks as pretentious concerns for others. Gossip always distorts and exaggerates, and is never a reliable source of truth. Those who gossip and slander are not in right fellowship with God (Romans 1:28-32). Those who gossip rarely get answers to prayer, and often face persistent, unexplainable problems (Psalms 66:18, Proverbs. 21:23, Proverbs. 6:12-15)." source
