Frank Viola, noted author and blogger, recently posted an article at his blog called “Hearing Only One Side of a Story.” In the article Frank tells of an experience early in his Christian walk with Christians and gossip, and his thoughts now as a mature Christian. Within the post, Frank linked to an excellent earlier guest post on his blog called “Have You Heard?“, by Jon Zens, which is a more detailed examination of gossip and slander in the church. These are both very good articles concerning a topic that is all too prevalent in the church, much to our shame and detriment. Both are well worth your time to read and reflect upon. Links to both articles are below.
