“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”
(1 Corinthians 15:33). All evil companionships “corrupts.”

All evil is contagious, and association with evildoers, whether they are “church members” or ‘open infidels’, has a defiling and debasing effect upon the true child of God. Mark well how the Holy Spirit has prefaced His warning: “Do not be deceived.” Evidently there is a real danger of God’s people imagining that they can play with fire without getting burned. Not so! God has not promised to protect us when we fly in the face of his danger signals.”~

Friendship with the world makes you and ENEMY of God. Who’s approval and company do you seek regularly? What is your mind full of? That is what your heart is full of. Proverbs…it’s in the Bible. Along with more warnings about false professors who live like and for the world. Maybe you should let the truth found there cut you to the marrow, perhaps sparing your life…You are what you seek. And unless your conscience is so defiled that you have none, you KNOW what it is you are really seeking. God forbid it be a way out of Hell without submitting to Christ as Lord, being truly reborn in Him, and banking on a form of spirituality that in practice denies it’s power….You ARE how you actually LIVE. THAT is where the truth is found out…objectively and held up against the unchanging, inerrant word of God. You remember Him? The One who calls you His enemy? Repent and throw yourself upon His mercy…more…submit to the counsel of God and His truth. SUBMIT. Lip Service is not enough, you must submit to the word and live BY it and FOR HIM. Knowledge won’t save you. Only true rebirth through the biblical Christ will save you. And in that, your submission will show itself clearly, biblically. But you must SUBMIT. Aye, there’s the rub, eh?
