Is it Sinful to Live Among Sinners?

John 8:7Mark 2:17 (NAS)
And hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

John 8:7-9 (NAS)
But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." ... When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.

Food for Thought
Who among us is NOT a sinner? Even saints are sinners too, except that they have been saved by grace. There is nothing wrong with living alongside sinners, but to participate in sin with them is wrong (Psalm 141:4).
