John 15:14
“You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.”

Everybody must have entrenched and permanent principles based on the Word of God, personal instructions from God etc. Such principles must not be opened for discussion. People must either flow with you or leave your life. Your must build your life around your Christian principles, beliefs, absolutes and convictions.

If people want to move with you, they must rather bend or flow in your direction. For example, the fact that you are believing God for a life partner doesn’t mean you should throw away your convictions on sex outside marriage and all that because you have waited for long. It is better to ‘wait long’ than to marry wrong. The fact that you are presented with a juicy contract or package doesn’t mean you should succumb to somebody’s pressure to compromise on principles of honesty and faithfulness. The fact that you want to travel outside doesn’t mean you must lie and cheat. Have permanent PRINCIPLES not permanent Friends. Loyalty is not blind. For example you can’t keep calling somebody your pastor or spiritual father if he tries to or succeeds in getting you compromise on your principles of purity.

The Bible gives us the freedom to leave certain circles of relationship.

2 Timothy 3:5
“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”


Romans 16:17
“Now I plead to you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which all of you have learned; and avoid them.”


1 Corinthians 5:11
“But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortionist; with such an one no not to eat.”

Don’t have permanent relationships in the name of blind loyalty. Have permanent principles.
