I agree we are to look out for our children, but we are to train them also to look for opputtunities to be witness's and look for ways to share the Gospel. I don't think we can do that by hiding our kids from the world either.


We should be training for for witnessing opportunities yes, but also as to what sin is and how to avoid it, whether it be lying, stealing, homosexuality, whiskey, whatever, and teach them to separate from it.

Luke 18:9-14


That's not it at all. Unsaved family and friends quit associating with me. I have made attempts at witnessing when the opportunity arose.
We are also called to be separate. One who is saved should not put him/herself intentionally into a situation where his/her testimony could be questioned, nor should he/she do, say or act as the worldly sinful world. One who truly loves Jesus will want to honor him and strive not to sin (although none of us are perfect) and strive to do ones best to glorify Him.

My husband told me long ago, that I would loose all my worldly friends.  He told me it is a part of being a follower of Jesus Christ.  I am happy to say that my husband has a large family, all of whom are saved.  He is the oldest of nine children.  They are included in my church family, as well.


That's wonderful that his family is all saved.

I just found it amazing how I didn't have to do anything to "lose" lost friends, rather the quit associating with me when I began to follow Jesus and the Bible. I no longer have the desire (and also despise) for things such as alcohol, profanity, sinful music, and so on. I thank The Lord for all of that.

As honebee pointed out, "I have yet to find a homosexual who would like to be my friend."
Years ago, my son and my ex-husband were going to a homosexual to get their hair cut. I arrived to pick up my son one day in this man's shop. After I left, the man asked my ex husband if I was a Born Again Christian. No words were exchanged between me and this man, except "hello." My ex husband told the man, "yes" and also asked him how he could tell. The homosexual said, I can spot a Born Again Christian a mile away.

Since I have been saved, the only friends I have are other born again Christians. In fact, two professing "friends" say they are born again, but still have a foot in the world. I haven't spoken to either of them in over two years. Therefore, the only friends I have are friends who are IFB. I lost all contact with my unsaved friends when I trusted Jesus Christ as Personal Saviour. They decided they didn't want to hang around me anymore. That's alright with me, b/c I know my friends are women in my IFB church and surrounding IFB churches. And, I also know that the closest friend I have, besides my husband, is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Exactly....the lost/unsaved friends will usually stop being friends with one who is truly saved. Same for family. Of my family only my sister claims to be saved (she attends a Lutheran church), but one sure would not know it by her fruit...she is still deeply steeped in the world and sin. My brothers stopped communicating with me years ago after I was saved. My parents are communicating with me but are not saved, but have seen my life changed and my sisters hypocricy and ask questions from time to time.

Like you Candle, my family is comprised of Jesus, my wife and my church family.
