E-Gossip

Avoid pointless discussions. People who (pay attention to these pointless discussions) will become more ungodly. 2nd Timothy 2:16 

There are so many addictive gossip blogs and tabloids around us. I have 4 of such blogs added to my phone's home screen. Some of them carry the latest news around the world but majority of their posts are all vanity which we love. Who is wearing what, who is dating who, who is cheating on her spouse, who was spotted at some place, who is showing off what he has, who has the best bikini body, which governor is lavishing money on an actress... Are these not the pointless discussions in the 2nd Timothy verse? Some of us are not discussing or actively slandering or opening yanshes but we also become more ungodly by following these pointless discussions. The closest many of us have been, to Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Toyin Lawani, Uti, Genevieve, Tope Alabi and the like, is on our Tv screens and on the pages of the tabloids but if we table their matter ehn you would think we went to nursery school with them. Celebrities and objects of blog posts are often bullied to the point of depression with some going ahead to commit suicide all thanks to us. We are so quick to judge. Many of us seem to forget that there are no bigger or lesser sins.

Am I being paranoid and it's not that serious? What do you think? *E-hugs*

U are so on point, many people claim to know u more than urself. Reminds me of a lousy babe that was 'gisting' about me and my wife with my wife without actually knowing who she was, wife played along till she had spilled all she had to say b4 introducing herself. She was so embarrassed!
Many people just pick up gists, add their own lines & 'voila' they hv d story of ur life.

When we get into pointless discussions and gossip more than often we tend to speak lies and defame others and most of the time the person spoken of will not be there.This is certainly ungodly.
Infact only fear of God can give us wisdom,for God's word makes it clear that all liars,cowards,occult magics,idolaters,sexually immoral will be sent to eternal hell fire-Revelations21:8.
This grave warning is not for us to become fearfull ,but rather to have God's selfless love as shown by Lord Jesus Christ on the cross,which drives out all fear and unifies mankind to peace and prosperity.
May God bless you.
