Listen to Gods words. I have suffered extreme pain and slander because I listened to flattering lips from professing so-called Christians. I didn 't discern that they were gossipers talebearers and I got bit by them. God is trying to protect you. Those who make a habit of bringing up others personal business to you, avoid them!! Don 't be pulled in by it! Don 't join them! They are only interested in gaining your trust and they are masters at fake nice , so that they can get your personal information and use it against you and slander your name to others. They have a sick need to talk about others who are not included in the conversations meddlers and busybodies . You will notice they are always the one who initiate bringing someone else 's personal business into your conversations, with pretend concern for that person. Don 't bite the bait, don 't give them your personal business and tell them that you don 't want to know the personal business of others without them present to defend themselves. God is trying to save you from pain and from joining in their habitual sin. Listen to God and avoid them. They are not walking in love for the brethren. May God protect and bless you. In Jesus name. AMEN

Be careful who you hang out with, there are some christians who are ungodly still, anyone whose relationship with you brings you closer to God is good for you, great minds discuss ideas, great works of God, small minds(tale bearers)!
