**Last Sunday, it was pointed out to me that I had seemingly associated a legitimate question, “Well, what do you think about this...” as a springboard to gossip.

I never intended that it was wrong to question anything. Cults do that! Closed minds require that! It is the motive/attitude behind the question that can covertly draw an unsuspecting & ‘innocent’ person(in relation to the issue at hand) into a potentially slanted/‘gossip’ situation.

God’s people are to judge/determine/weigh situations, but we are to always do so effectively & efficiently according to God’s bases of right, wrong, & heart’s motivation(righteous judgment—Jn. 7:24).

Jn. 7:23-24—“If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath? Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
