We must be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven us. (See Ephesians 4:32) But we are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or a drunkard, or a swindler. Don’t even eat with such people. (See 1. Corinthians 5:11) For the simple reason that the Bible says; “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1. Corinthians 15:33 NLT  That is why we must stay away from people who are unloving and unforgiving; who slander others and have no self-control and are cruel and have no interest in what is good. We must stay away from those who betray their friends, are reckless, puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. These are the kind of people who will act as if they are religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. (See 2. Timothy 3:2-5) We also need to watch out and stay away from people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching things that are contrary to what the Bible, the Word of God, teaches us. Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people. (See Romans 16:17-18) The consequences of having relationships with unrepentant people like that can be devastating and painful and open the doors to all sorts of curses in our lives. It will not lead us to the heart of Jesus Christ and His blessings, but to the contrary, away from God into confusion, the stealing of our peace with God, and ultimately corrupting our good behavior! They will instead encourage bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, evil speaking and malice. (See Ephesians 4:31) Therefore, for your own protection: STAY AWAY!!!
