I've had this evidenced to me by others more than once. While other people put on Christian airs, they have intentionally berated me, decided not to forgive me, etc. I cannot worry about that or follow that path.

One of the things that can destroy any church or ministry is gossip. Other terms in the Bible for gossip include: backbiter, busybody, slanderer, secrets, talebearer and whisperers. So then, a Biblical definition of gossip would be to spread rumors or secrets, speak about someone maliciously behind their back or repeat something about someone else that you have no right to repeat. My husband often says “If you aren’t part of the problem or the solution, its gossip”.
