“Your former friends are surprised when you no longer plunge into the flood of wild and destructive things they do. So they slander you” (1 Peter 4:4 NLT). Did you get that? Your “former friends” may not be your friends any longer because you don’t do what you used to do.
You can’t have it both ways. You can either live with the pagans and adopt their morals and their lifestyle or you can live for the Lord.
But you can’t do both at the same time.
When you decide to go against the flow, don’t expect the world to give you a merit badge for courage.
