Two things regarding Dr. James' post:

I clicked on the link “HOW TO KNOW WHAT PEOPLE TO STAY AWAY FROM.” In a matter of two seconds I read three spelling errors. If you are going to share something of substance, please make sure it's legible.

Secondly, I assume the gist of the article has to do with avoiding negative people who might somehow influence our character. Why is it that most "church goers" are often afraid of being influenced by others? Are they so weak-minded that they can easily be convinced of most anything by anyone? In answering this question I am reminded of the hundreds of "church goers" who followed preacher Jim Jones to their death in Guyana in the 70's. I am reminded of the millions of "church goers" who sit at the pews every Sunday nodding their heads in agreement with everything that is hurled at them from the pulpit; never bothering to question the validity of the message or the messenger. It's so easy to hide behind the cloak of "faith" and of "let go and let God." Being a mindless follower should be considered one of the worst of sins.
