What does one think Jesus meant by that statement? This is reality-- not participating in the pagan filled holidays-- not voting for corrupt politicians-- not killing one another in the wars of hatred, not being gay, fornicators,drunkards,druggies, greedy,idolotors, etc. The above describes 99% of what the world partakes in--1% dont. 1% try to live righteous lives.

Be a good witness for Christ.
You know how people, when they don't know the meaning of a word, automatically think it's appropriate?
Well, How about this one:
Schloop-Schloop-Ping-a-Pang-bong
Which means:
To play a vigorous game of monopoly

NO wonder people are confused. one verse, middle of a sentence, presumed to be a 20th century quotation. It is John, it is about the Spirit and is addressed to jews after the fall of the temple. Contemporarily it is addressed to all who do not accept the Apostles and would rather do as you did here.
