Andrew: ‘May your life preach more loudly than your lips.’ I like that. But what if you can’t avoid being influenced by the friends you’re trying to draw to Jesus? What if you just start talking and acting like them?
You quoted Matthew 5v14-16 that says: you are the light of the world – so shine in the darkness. But what about verse 13? ‘You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?’ In 1 Corinthians 15v33 Paul says: ‘Don’t be fooled: Bad company corrupts good character.’
Isn’t that an argument to just stay away from people who do dodgy stuff?
