Separate yourself

II Kings 13:11 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD; he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin: but he walked therein.

When you follow the sins of others, you will be doing evil in the sight of the Lord. It is your choice. You do not have to do what others do. Others may be influencing you and your friends, but you do not have to succumb to their temptation. You need to not walk in the way that you know doesn’t please God.

Look at every decision. Decide if it pleases God. Do not try to satisfy your friends or other people but God. Though the whole world is going after this thing, you are not one of them, and you do not have to follow their madness. You are a child of God so choose to serve God and follow Him.
