Is it Biblical to be Separate? Yes!Posted: October 19, 2019
So many times I’ve read liberal Christians protest that the idea of separating the godly from the ungodly, as being “unchristian”.
But I found the following 6 helpful scriptures posted on Facebook today, regarding this topic –
And he (The Apostle Paul) went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God. 9 But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he DEPARTED FROM THEM and WITHDREW the disciples.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, and BE YE SEPARATE, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
2 Thessalonians 3:6
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that YE WITHDRAW YOURSELVES from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
1 Timothy 6:3-6
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such WITHDRAW THYSELF.
1 Corinthians 5:4-13
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
To DELIVER SUCH AN ONE UNTO SATAN for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
PURGE OUT therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
I wrote unto you in an epistle NOT TO KEEP COMPANY with fornicators:
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
But now I have written unto you NOT TO KEEP COMPANY, if any man/wpman THAT IS CALLED A BROTHER ( or calls him or her self “a christian”), be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; WITH SUCH AN ONE NO NOT TO EAT.
For what have I to do to judge them also that are without ?
do not ye judge them that are within (church fellowship) church?
But them that are without (outside church fellowship) God judgeth.
Therefore PUT AWAY FROM AMONG YOURSELVES that wicked person.
And HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
