Make no room for rumors

The more room you make for rumors, the more they mushroom in your mind. A rumor consumer is guided more by emotions than by facts. Rumor spreaders give rumor makers too much power.

Perhaps it’s easy to believe that people are doing bad things, because we know that we also do bad things. We need a conspiracy theory about a group of people who are conspiring to bring about more kindness and compassion.

Gossip is a set-up for anger and hostility. Retaliatory words are seldom helpful.

Freedom of speech involves the right to kindly express your belief that certain behaviors are morally wrong. It’s not the right to verbally attack people or to spread rumors.

Gossip,
Rumors,
Speculation,
Conspiracy theories,
Create a web of deception

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
