When we are with people who are joking around in ways that are “off color” (which is a nicer way to say sinful), it is easy for us to slip in with them with our laughter, or even our participation.

I have noticed that Christians sometimes defend the indefensible by saying “I was just kidding”, as if that justifies sinful speech.
