Have you every changed your thoughts or behavior due to association with someone else? When I did not have Christ in my life , I allowed people to influence my thoughts and even how I worshipped God. When you can not identify the intentions of others you may fall victim to what you are told and mistakenly led the wrong way. That is why you must know God for yourself and keep His commandments according to His Word. Man will manipulate you to fit their own selfish needs. God does not instruct another to led you astray.
The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that
they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.~John 10:10
It's important to have a uniqueness about your presence and walk with confidence in the Spirit.
This goes for your association for ALL mankind. (Believers/Unbelievers)
You may have a desire to fit in with a certain group, but instead of trying so hard to fit in ....pray to God and see what they have to offer that fits your lifestyle. Be led by the Spirit.
You may loose a few folks when your decision may not sit well with their plans for you, but that's okay. Practicing what's right has a tendency to "SEPARATE" one from another.
