Lex Luthor and Christian Fellowship

On a certain episode of Smallville, from season two, Lex Luthor is about to kill a guy. See, the guy was an ex-boyfriend of Lex's girlfriend, and he showed up in town and eventually attacked her. She was in pretty bad condition. Anyway, understandably, Lex was furious. He had found the guy, was gonna kill him, and make it look like he did it in self defense. He could have gotten away with it easy. But.....
in the last second, with the gun pointed to the guys head, he hesitated, and rather than pull the trigger, he knocked him on the head with the gun, knocking him out.
See, his friendship with another person is what saved him from committing murder. Lex would have always known the truth, and if he would have told his girlfriend the truth, she probably would have wanted nothing to do with him at that point. Our friendships are extremely important. Our actions never affect only ourselves, but everyone around us, especially our closest friends. In the same way our actions affect our friends, our friends affect our actions. Having close friends with the same morals and goals as you can save you from evil. This is why fellowship within the Church is so important. Holiness is contagious, but evil is as well.
