5:25 PM - True Christians Separate From The World
True Christians Separate From The World
"Come out from among them and be separate,
says the Lord" 2 Corinthians 6:17
Separation from the world is a very important duty. Everyone who professes to be a Christian should consider it very seriously, for separation from the world has always been one of the evidences of God's work of grace in the heart. Those who have really been born of God's Spirit have always separated from the world, whereas those who are Christians only in name - always refuse to "come out and be separate".
This subject is especially important today, because many are trying to make Christianity as easy as possible and to avoid the need for self denial.
Many think they may behave just as they like and still be good Christians. I want to warn you plainly against this way of thinking.
