We have an amazing ability to become like those with whom we associate. The need to be accepted can cause one to compromise truth, be a color-changing Chameleon accommodating themselves to the undesirable.  God’s solution to these pressures is that we be sold out to truth with a life goal of glorifying God, supported by a faith community with the same goal.  Here we find ultimate acceptance in our Beloved. That’s enough!

“How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God? “ John 5:44
