Your associations matter to God. The company you keep has serious influence to your life. See what scriptures say about our associations as believers:
You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.
Shall we then break your commands again and intermarry with the peoples who commit such detestable practices? Would you not be angry enough with us to destroy us, leaving us no remnant or survivor?
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
I do not sit with the deceitful, nor do I associate with hypocrites.
I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.
I hate those who cling to worthless idols; as for me, I trust in the Lord.
Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
The perverse of heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with what is evil.
Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God
Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies.
My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked; or walk in the way of evildoers.
The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.
Stay away from a fool, for you will not find knowledge on their lips.
In the paths of the wicked are snares and pitfalls, but those who would preserve their life stay far from them.
Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence,
and their lips talk about making trouble.
I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
