“Spread the Gospel, Not the Gossip!”: a modern parable warning people of faith to adhere to the biblical admonition against bearing false witness against one’s neighbor. “Spread the Gospel, Not the Gossip!” is the creation of published author Robert A. Woods, a retired military veteran who served in the US Navy for nearly eighteen years, currently employed as a social worker in the Greensboro, North Carolina area.

Woods shares, “This story is about how a rumor of an untrue adulterous affair got started and it got spread from one person’s mouth to many others. The story will prompt you to think of some people you are familiar with either in your church, on the job, in your neighborhood, on social media, some of your friends—and yes, even some of your own family members. Also, this story will make you think about how you too could very well be one of the characters mentioned in this story or have played the role as one of them at some point in your life.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Robert A. Woods‘s new book is a cautionary tale warning of the deleterious effects of gossip and rumor on both individuals and communities.
