Satan likes to use division as a tool to disable the effectiveness of those who follow Jesus. And one thing he uses to cause division is gossip. Gossip often leads to confusion, arguing and fighting. And when believers are involved with all of those things, they are not moving forward and they are certainly not being effective for the cause of Christ.
