Don't allow yourself to be pressured one way or another—be honest and think for yourself. It's in the Bible, Exodus 23:2-3, TLB. "Don't join mobs intent on evil. When on the witness stand, don't be swayed in your testimony by the mood of the majority present, and do not slant your testimony in favor of a man just because he is poor."
Misery and sin love company. It's in the Bible, Proverbs 4:14-16, TLB. "Don't do as the wicked do. Avoid their haunts—turn away, go somewhere else, for evil men can't sleep until they've done their evil deed for the day. They can't rest unless they cause someone to stumble and fall."
Peer pressure often leads to bad decision making. It's in the Bible, Matthew 14:9, TLB. "The king was grieved, but because of his oath, and because he didn't want to back down in front of his guests, he issued the necessary orders."
Peer pressure can lead to tragic consequences. It's in the Bible, Luke 23:23-24, TLB. "But they shouted louder and louder for Jesus' death, and their voices prevailed. So Pilate sentenced Jesus to die as they demanded."
Be firm as you stand true to God and refuse to compromise. It's in the Bible, II Corinthians 6:8, TLB. "We stand true to the Lord whether others honor us or despise us, whether they criticize us or commend us. We are honest, but they call us liars."
