HOW DO YOU DEFINE A FRIEND? (2)


Okay, in the first post in this series (read here), I established that friendship should not be by force, since a true friend is only one who adds value to you. Let’s continue from there.

The second thing I will like to say about true friends here is that AN UNBELIEVER CANNOT (and Should Never) BE A FRIEND/CONFIDANT/ADVISER OF A TRUE CHILD OF GOD. I predicate this on the truth of 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

Can you stand to be blessed? “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;” If you mean to fulfill your destiny, you will not allow an infidel to be your friend. YOU WILL SUCCEED!
