Tabloids/Gossip/Call to Action

Why do we believe what is in the tabloids anyway?  It’s not like their hiding the fact that it’s not necessarily 100% true.

… right at the top… TMZ Celebrity Gossip.


Definition:  idle talk or rumor, esp. about the personal or private affairs of others


Definition: a story or statement in general circulation without confirmation or certainty as to facts


Oh really?  Well let’s say what the Bible says about gossip….

Question: “What does the Bible say about gossip?”

Answer: The Hebrew word translated “gossip” in the Old Testament is defined as “one who reveals secrets, one who goes about as a talebearer or scandal-monger.” A gossiper is a person who has privileged information about people and proceeds to reveal that information to those who have no business knowing it. Gossip is distinguished from sharing information in two ways:

1. Intent. Gossipers often have the goal of building themselves up by making others look bad and exalting themselves as some kind of repositories of knowledge.

2. The type of information shared. Gossipers speak of the faults and failings of others, or reveal potentially embarrassing or shameful details regarding the lives of others without their knowledge or approval. Even if they mean no harm, it is still gossip.

In the book of Romans, Paul reveals the sinful nature and lawlessness of mankind, stating how God poured out His wrath on those who rejected His laws. Because they had turned away from God’s instruction and guidance, He gave them over to their sinful natures. The list of sins includes gossips and slanderers (Romans 1:29-32). We see from this passage how serious the sin of gossip is and that it characterizes those who are under God’s wrath.


OH MY GOSH!!! People! We not only have to stop using people’s lives as our entertainment, we have to stop supporting the game of gossip.

This tabloid industry is making money off of a sin.

If God sees all sin as equal, this is the equivalent to making money off of killing people!

I am so freakin’ mad at myself!!! The message has been there for years and I was deafened by a great beat! *disgusted*

And this is not new…. Uh hello!  Remember this?

Moving down the picture… in case you can’t read it…

Don’t waste your cash

On that filthy tabloid trash

Dang look at that nice a_ _ …. oh sorry was that my outside voice? 😉

Anyway, shake it off…. Solution mode now.

What are we gonna do about it?

You may be saying… yeah… exactly… what can little old me do about it?

If we bind together in unity, there is nothing we can’t do!  There are so many things in this world that we could make right if we were just to unify.

We need to raise our voice as one on several issues.

We need to pray as one as Major Love Prayer has been asking us to do.

Never underestimate our power… the power of the MJFam to make a change!
