Bad Company

1 Corinthians 15:33 (NIV)

33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Psalm 1 (NIV)

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked

or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—

whatever they do prospers.

Proverbs 4:14-17 (NIV)

14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked
or walk in the way of evildoers.
15 Avoid it, do not travel on it;
turn from it and go on your way.
16 For they cannot rest until they do evil;
they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble.
17 They eat the bread of wickedness
and drink the wine of violence.

Exodus 23:32-33 (NIV)

32 Do not make a covenant with them or with their gods. 33 Do not let them live in your land or they will cause you to sin against me, because the worship of their gods will certainly be a snare to you.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18  (NIV)

14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
 and they will be my people.”

17 Therefore,“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”

18 And,“I will be a Father to you,
 and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”
