Bad Company Corrupts Good Character

"Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good character" (1 Corinthians 15:33). All evil companionships "corrupt." All evil is contagious, and association with evildoers, whether they are "church members" or 'open infidels', has a defiling and debasing effect upon the true child of God. Mark well how the Holy Spirit has prefaced His warning: "Do not be deceived." Evidently there is a real danger of God's people imagining that they can play with fire without getting burned. Not so! God has not promised to protect us when we fly in the face of his danger signals."

~Arthur Pink, "Godly Companions"
