About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

Dr. Hiles began this discussion by addressing and clarifying one critical factor.

If any of your friends, specifically non-believers, is a bad influence or a hindrance to your relationship with Jesus, you may need to be more cautious in pursuing that relationship. If people are encouraging you to participate in activities or behaviors that go against what our faith calls us to, then it is nearly impossible to continue positive friendships with them without compromising your beliefs.
