Jeremiah 4:3 says, "...Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among the thorns." You can't live your life among the thorns and not expect them to influence your life. You can't sow among liberal teachers and not expect their teachings to influence you. You can't sow among liberal lifestyles and not expect their children to influence your children. When you live among the thorns of the world, you are going to have thorns sprout in your own life. If you don't want to have a thorny future, then don't live among the thorns.
