There are many evil influences in the world (1 Cor. 15:33). False doctrines are believed and practiced by many. False friends lead us astray and into sin. False religions are spreading and condemning the souls of men.

The children of God are to be an influence for good (Matt. 5:13-16). We must live righteously and teach the truth. When we do this, the result is the glory of God.

This sermon looks at our duty to be salt and light and how we must persevere or suffer the consequences.
