I've had this evidenced to me by others more than once. While other people put on Christian airs, they have intentionally berated me, decided not to forgive me, etc. I cannot worry about that or follow that path. I have to keep striving to do what is right in the eyes of #God, not what is popular and favorable in the opinions of mankind.
One of the things that can destroy any church or ministry is gossip. Other terms in the Bible for gossip include: backbiter, busybody, slanderer, secrets, talebearer and whisperers.

My husband often says “If you aren’t part of the problem or the solution, its gossip”.
8 Things Christians Need to STOP doing. These things hurt our testimony and hurt the cause of Christ. The Bible has a lot to say about these 8 things.
