Confidentiality and the Bible

Christians are called on to disclose their problems to one another (Galatians 6:2; James 5:16). But is it ever right to discuss another person's problem with a third party?

At first glance, the Bible seems to contradict itself in this area. On the one hand, it speaks strongly against gossip. Proverbs 20:19 says, ". . .do not associate with a gossip." Other passages like 1 Timothy  5:13 and 2 Thessalonians 3:11 condemn "busybodies" who "speak about things not proper to mention."

Likewise, some passages defend the idea of confidentiality. Proverbs 11:13 says, "He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy conceals a matter." Matthew 18:15 says, "If your brother sins, go and reprove him in private. . ." This implies the desirability of leaving the issue alone if it's satisfactorily resolved.

The Bible sometimes speaks strongly about the need to tell others about someone else's problems. Matthew 18:16,17—the same passage that recommends resolving it in private—commands making it public if necessary. And 1 Timothy 5:20 states that the elder who “continues in sin” should be rebuked “in the presence of all.” We can conclude from passages like these that when we sin, we don't have the right to insist other Christians cover for us.

One reason for the high character qualifications of leaders is so they can be trusted to handle this kind of knowledge responsibly. Passages requiring leaders to be "above reproach" (1 Timothy 3; Titus 1) imply that a Christian should come forward if they know that leader or would-be leader is under reproach.5
