No Gossiping For You

a: Tale-bearing ~
b: denying God

What: Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Deiot, chapter 7:3: "The Sages said that there are three sins which 'collect' of a man in this world and deprive him of a share in the World To Come. These sins are idolatry, adultery and murder, but tale-bearing is above all. The Sages further said that tale-bearing is like denying God. The Sages further said that three types of tale-bearing kill telling, listening and slandering. The sin of listening is worse than that of telling."
