Hob-Nob with Sodom, Chummy with Gomorrah

"And they tell us now, even in some evangelical circles, that we ought to hob-nob with Sodom and get chummy with Gomorrah, in order to convert them. And the argument is that old one that "the end justifies the means", forgetting that the means determines the end. A few years of an unworthy means and you've already spoiled the objective before you get to it. And these dear people are not turning on the light in Sodom, they're just getting used to the dark."

--Vance Havner, from the sermon "Getting Used to the Dark"
