The Truth Is ….Bad Company Corrupts good Character
1 CORINTHIANS 15:33-34 “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God —I say this to your shame.”
In using this scripture, I realize that Paul is speaking to the Corinthians in regard to the false teaching concerning the resurrection of the dead. However, I find the quote “bad company corrupts good character” to be a wise warning concerning all information or advice you might receive from persons who does not have the way of GOD in mind. The misinformed advice given may come intentionally or unintentionally. But, anything you do outside of GOD’s word can corrupt your good character. “There is a way that seems right to a man/ women, but in the end it leads to death.” This saying is quoted twice in the book of Proverbs, first in chapter 14 verse 12 and secondly in chapter 16 verse 25. I believe Solomon was making a strong point. There is a lot of information in the world that sounds good, but it may not be. Learn to make correct judgments.
Prayer: Lord give us discernment and the faith to choose to follow you and your word in Jesus name we pray. Amem
