True or False:

The word “gossip” is not found in most translations of the Bible. Gossip is defined as, “Idle talk or rumor, esp. about the personal or private affairs of others” (RHCD). The closest thing to a biblical definition of gossip would be the following:

“…they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to.(1 Tim. 5: 13, NIV).

Gossip is often half-truths and even truth that does not need to be said.

” A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.” Proverbs 11:13

Gossip is good and a social bonding? Gossip is fun? Without gossip there is no communication?
