First let me say that I'm just curious about this and your opinions. I overheard a conversation (a very loud conversation) in a store the other day and it got me thinking).
I overheard someone talking about being saved and the like, and how once you're saved you can't hang out with non-Christians, you can't go to certain places, etc. While I understand that if you had a problem before (say you were an alcoholic, so you should probably avoid bars in the future), but Jesus didn't "hang out" with the saved exclusively, correct?
This person was talking about how if you do those things (hang out with certain people and the like), other Christians will question your beliefs and salvation, and made it sound like th opinions of other Christians is what makes you a Christian. But, as a Christian, doesn't the opinion of God matter more to you than that of other people?
Again, I can understand avoiding situations that might cause you to slip back into old, bad habits (drug use, alcoholism, etc.), but do you think that you should only ever be around other Christians and your only options for places to go should be the grocery store, church, etc.?
