I blessed God for this Bible study and I appreciat you for this outline . I would love you to be sending much more Bible study outline to me and other Christian literatures for discipleship. By God grace am the General Overseer of GOD’S GENERALS ARMY EVANGELICAL MINISTRY INTERNATIONAL(GOGAEMI) a.k.a. GOD’S BATTLE AXE JER. 51:20-23. I will like us to be partners as we spread the gospel all around. You send post to Jesus Missionary Commission, p.o. Box 4047. Ilorin, Kwara State. Nigeria. Using my name. Thanks. Yours in Christ Evang Yusuf Samuel.

Thank you Mr. Samuel for your kind words. I don’t know how we can team up with you in ministry as partners other than sending you articles. Is that what you mean sir? I am a bi-vocational pastor and have to work to support myself. I know postage for mail is the only thing I worry about. In what way can we help you sir? These articles are free to use on the Internet on this website. Let me know just how we can partner in your ministry in Nigeria sir.

Jack, this was really good. You gave some excellent ideas to get out of gossip situations. I had not heard of taking the gossiper to the gossip victim. That is a great idea if nothing else will work. Well done Jack! This was sound truth as always. God bless you brother!

Jack Wellman April 17, 2013 at 9:27 pm

Thank you so much brother. I detest gossip and that’s the reason that in our church, many of the prayer requests have became “unspoken needs” for sadly, these prayer requests all too often turn to gossip. May God bless you for your encouragement to me Derek.

Dear Jack
What a really great article as always! Thank you.
May I put forward another gossip solution for your consideration? Perhaps try to minister to the gossiper about his/her actions and the way these are perceived in the eyes of God? Therefore one is not merely condemning the actions of a gossiper, but is attempting to assist them as a Christian manner? It is a great opportunity to assist someone in changing their ways for God’s glory…

I must say, as a woman, it is very difficult to walk away from gossip, but I must say, I never pass it on (not that I can remember). And it can be difficult to follow what you have suggested above, although, very excellent suggestions, biblically based, but I think I would be most comfortable with a gentle approach and advising the person that this is not pleasing to God, and that even if the gossip is true, we need to forgive others and not be prideful in our opinions of them.

Many thanks once again, Jack.

Nikita…what a great suggestion. I thought that I had covered that in the section titled “Rebuke the Gossiper” but maybe I did a poor job of relating it. The way you said it is much better. Thank you so much. Great idea.

Nikita June 17, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Dear Jack
I do apologise – you did state that one should advise that gossiping is an abomination to Him (our Lord). Suppose I just experience the word ‘rebuke’ as a strong admonition and that blinded me to what you were actually saying.
Again, great article.

Dear Jack,
You did an amazing job on this! Thank you for helping me to grow up in the Lord and become a true beacon of light in this dark hour. Also, this article has helped me to understand the importance of reading my Bible on a daily basis. It’s difficult to continue in gossip if my face is in The Book (Bible) and not Facebook.

I notice how quickly I’ve engaged in gossip only to find that this weaken my testimony for those watching. I realized that within the work place, I’m suppose to lead a difference lifestyle (leading others to Jesus Christ) but if I take part in the ‘slander’; this causes others to fall and I’m responsible for shining a brighter light so that others wont be hindered as I partake in the gossip.

This article has convicted me to confess my sin, turn away from it and trun to the Lord. With tears in my eyes, my heart is Thankful. It is goodness that has lead me to repentance today. Thank you, thank you THANK YOU!! Precious Blessings to you and your family.

Jack Wellman February 18, 2015 at 10:01 pm

I appreciate your very kind words Cassandra but I too plead guilty…it is just so hard to nip it at the source. Wow…your humility in repentance shows that you have such a passionate desire for obedience showing me your love for God in obeying Him is very, very strong. I admire that and may God richly bless you for that.

Joseph February 14, 2016 at 10:02 pm

Dear Jack,
Truly God’s word gives assurance and strength to go on. I pray the Lord bless you mightily and abundantly in providing all your needs daily.

Gail Brown February 24, 2016 at 2:27 pm

Thank you for this article. I’m asking God to change my heart as I sometimes bring up the past of others and want to change 100%. I was feeling terrible and them read the kind ladies reply and felt a little peace. I’m going to spend a week reading and studying about my heart and ask God to give me the victory. Praise the Lord for revealing to me my sins.

Dianna October 24, 2017 at 7:50 am

I was told by an elder…..if you can’t get away from that person right away, offer to pray for the gossiped person right away. We know how others tend to run away when we begin to pray! God bless you for giving us valuable lessons on God’s word to use in this sin, sick world.

Kurien A October 5, 2019 at 4:43 pm
