1Co 15:33 Don't be fooled: "Bad friends will ruin good habits. (ERV)

1Co 15:33 Do not be tricked by false words: evil company does damage to good behaviour. (BBE)

1Co 15:33 Stop being deceived: "Wicked friends lead to evil ends."

I. Don't Be Fooled

II. Bad Friends Will Ruin Good Habits

I. Don't Be Fooled

Several things will come to mind:

1. Don't think that we're strong enough to stop their bad influence.

2. The negative always win overcoming the positive

3. Choose your friends wisely, choose a wise and righteous friend.

4. Not everyone could be the friend of a pastor, but look for someone who's godly and fears God and be his friend.

You might say, oh Im not their friend I'm just sticking around, there's no reason for you to stick around since bad friends or people will use evil communications and you will be influenced by them. You could not be a friend of someone who worships and serves the devil, you are God's servant and you worship and serve the Light.

You can be an acquaintance of everyone but you can only be a friend of someone who knows and serves the Lord like you do.

You cannot influence them for the Kingdom of God, it never happened, don't be fooled, many have tried and they failed. They have now backsliden.

1 Corinthians 6:9 You know that wicked people will not inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop deceiving yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,

Bad people will not inherit the Kingdom of God, that's about it, you need to win their souls to the Lord, then become their friends in the ministry. If this will not work with them, your friendship of them ends here.

Matthew 24:4 Jesus answered them, "See to it that no one deceives you,

Matthew 24:11 Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people,

Nowadays, many churches have opened their doors to homosexuals, and lesbianism, even intermarrying with them. Come on now, don't let this happen to your church. Let them repent first, show a proof of change, be involved in the ministry and then you can be friends with them. Don't be fooled, don't be deceived.

Matthew 24:24 because false messiahs and false prophets will appear and display great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Galatians 6:7 Stop being deceived; God is not to be ridiculed. A person harvests whatever he plants:

Ephesians 5:6 Do not let anyone deceive you with meaningless words, for it is because of these things that God becomes angry with those who disobey.

2 Thessalonians 2:10 and every type of evil to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them.

Revelations 12:9 The huge dragon was hurled down. That ancient serpent, called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, was hurled down to the earth, along with its angels.

Come on now, if they're not for the truth, then you're out their door and lives.
