Accepted patterns of behavior prevalent in society and in the professing church
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2
There are accepted patterns of behavior prevalent in society and in the professing church, which are in violation of the commands of God. And because they are the accepted patterns — they are not reckoned to be wrong, and we do not come under reproach when we conform to them.
"Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you." 2 Corinthians 6:17
