Yes, we can be influenced and “talked into doing something” by people, events, society, circumstance, etc. but ultimately the decision is yours and yours alone. FREE WILL. What you ultimately decide to do is up to you. We need to take more personal accountability in our actions.
It is sad when brothers and sisters in Christ are quick to condemn a person for their actions or behavior. We all need to be reminded that Jesus was here to save the lost. Jesus did not interact with the “well to do” but with those that society deemed as outcasts. Also, the Bible is filled with people with faults that God used to further the kingdom. The more we shut out the “outcasts” and those who have different opinions, the further we get from our mission here on Earth. PJSLB.
