Peer pressure can be very hard to resist. So many are affected by the views and values of their social circle and largely conform to what others think, say and do, as well as to what they eat and wear.
But this is not new. While the Bible does not speak of 'peer groups' and the pressure they exert, it does point to 'the course of this world.' It warns Christian believers not to be conformed to its thought patterns or to the ignorance of God which they betray. Moreovoer, it also gives us examples of those who have, by the grace of God, lived and died in faith.
