Often times those who gossip don't even take time to realize how much time and energy they waste doing so. Gossip doesn't uplift anyone spiritually. Those with the gift of discernment recognize gossip as being the works of the enemy.

 

Devil (Greek/ diabllo)- slanderer, accuser (G#1228)

Satan G#4567 the accuser, that is, the devil: - Satan. (note: 1 Cor.5:5 some people deserve to be left to accusations for some never start looking up until they hit rock bottom)

 

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night - Rev.12:10

 

The purpose of gossip is to break others down and doesn't stress forgiveness. Accusations done both behind someones back and before their face is known as Gossip (evil speach) or in the Hebrew: lashon hara.

 

"Speech is considered to be lashon hara if it says something negative about a person or party, is not previously known to the public, is not seriously intended to correct or improve a negative situation, and most importantly, is true.Statements that fit this description are considered to be lashon hara, regardless of the method of communication that is used, whether it is through face-to-face conversation, a written letter, telephone, or email." - Wiki

 

There are negative effects for spreading negatives of others and according to Torah is seen as a serious sin and total disrespect of civil laws.

Those who are a slave to this sin often use stereotypes, labels, propaganda, and ideologies to spread ignorance and hate (strife/division) towards not only individuals but people by the masses. Often times those fallen victims of these tactics of the enemy in return take up the same tactics. This happens when those who exsperiance such begin to label and stereotype their enemy and teach their congregation and kids such tactics based on this rather than individual fruits. A well known Overcomer of this is Martin Luther King Jr. with his "I have a dream" speach!

 

"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood."

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."- Martin Luther King Jr.

Jas.4:11-12 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Lashon Hara (true, evil speech about a person with the aim of doing them harm rather than to build them up) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lashon_hara 

Lashon Hara is usually considered a sin, however accusations are called for when one insists on transgression and refuses to Hear the Word of the LORD in relation to their current fault.

Matt. 18:15-17 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

Rom.16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them

(We are called to be instruments of the Holy Spirit. Those that use their bodies as instruments of fornication instead are not to be counted amoung the congregation of the church)

1 Cor.5:1-13 speaks about those in the congregation that insist on being vessels fornication.

1 cor.5:4-5 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such an one unto Satan (accuser) for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Hotzaat shem ra- slander of someone based on lies.Also called: Hotzaat Diba, false, derogatory, slanderous or defamatory speech/ rekhilut - talesbearer (Lev.19:16)

Jas.1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
