The same friend came up to me weeks after I told him that his wife sounds like a loser to do something like this to such a good person. And he said, "hey, my wife and I went to a marriage counselor," I was surprised when he said, "I quit looking at porn and she quit looking at other men". I thought to myself, oh my I almost tore apart what God put together. So next time I'll remember who the marriage counselor is and to keep in mind that all parties being discussed should be present. Talking gossip about others this way is rude, destructive, and immature to say the least. Had I been a marriage counselor I probably would have known he was creating the whole problem by looking at porn, but I'm not a counselor, I'm a factory worker.
We at our Fathers bookstore agree that this is definitely true, if your not a counselor or an elder of the Church you probably shouldn't have to much to say in such matters. Here at Godlink we've discussed the topic of gossip before on the temptation blog a few months back. We found all kinds of scripture covering gossip. Misunderstanding, jealousy, anger, and many other misfortunes are caused by gossip, creating sin in others peoples lives that are around us. If you love them as your neighbor as you should, the greatest thing you could do is advise them to seek counseling preferably from a Church elder. Here are scriptures with thousands of years of advice on the topic of gossip; Leviticus 19:16, Psalm 34:13, & 52:2, Proverbs 11:13,16:28, 18:8, 20:19, 25:23, & 26:20-22.
