We are to influence this world and not be influenced by it. In 1 Corinthians 15:33 Paul says, Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” We are called to be in this world doing the will of God. However, we should be aware this world has the ability to impact and change us. Do not be deceived into thinking you can not be changed. If you are not constantly being influenced by good things, the bad will find a way.
