.... its nowhere found in scripture that one continues with folks who reject Jesus and the gospel, at least not as close companions, we don't see anyone in the new testiment doing that....

Sure Enough

And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.

For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. 1 Corinthians 7:13-17

..... Can people please stop judging me and telling me I am unwise?

I may be the only Christian influence in their lives at the moment.....

So

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

True

Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:4

Let me clarify.

I do not go to any non-believer asking for advice.

I have already stated that I have 2 Christian women I seek advice from, they are my true and trusted confidantes.

This group of friends I spoke about in the OP are work mates whom I have worked with for the last 6 years. I call them friends....

however......

We do not hang out on weekends or weekenights.

The only time we "hang out" is after work about once every two months for a cup of coffee.

Can people please stop judging me and telling me I am unwise?

I may be the only Christian influence in their lives at the moment.

I read through the post and I can't find anyone calling you unwise, yes it appears you may be the only light and salt your friends have in their lives, the trick is will you change them or will they change you.

I hate to say it but unless you have had a road to Damascus conversion where your willing to be whipped and beaten, stoned and shipwrecked, walking with an unshakable faith such as the apostle Paul, hanging out after work with unsaved will either be a mission work or a slow desalination of your saltiness.

just curious but what venue does this after work hanging out take place, a bar or a bible study?

What Venue Indeed

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23

Beloved, Such Things Ought Not Even Be Mentioned

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Ephesians 5:3

And Just Who Are We To Be Slinging Stones

Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. Romans 14:4

At Our Long Suffering Baby Sister

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Matthew 18:5:7

who is slinging stones friend? I was just checking what you might consider to be to far into the world for ministry.........we all have a line in the sand that won't be crossed,

but one might consider what is the purpose of this meeting, is it actually to minister to the unsaved or just hang out and be friends

Please, don't go to the extreme in your mind to try and prove your position. Deal with what you have been told and don't and to it.

The "venue" is a coffee shop where they sell coffee and tea.

Trust me, I have lived without God in my life - would I want to go back to that lifestyle? Let's just say that there is no comparison between the two lifestyles and I would have to be an utter fool to want to go back to my worldly lifestyle. Nothing about it attracts me in the least - that old life is dead to me.
