Separation, Summary:

(1) Separation in Scripture is twofold: “from” whatever is contrary to the mind of God; and “unto” God Himself. The underlying principle is that in a moral universe it is impossible for God to fully bless and use His children who are in compromise or complicity with evil. The unequal yoke is anything which unites a child of God and an unbeliever in a common purpose Deuteronomy 22:10.

(2) Separation from evil implies (a) separation in desire, motive, and act, from the world, in the ethically bad sense of this present world-system. (See Scofield “Revelation 13:8”) and (b) separation from believers, especially false teachers, who are “vessels unto dishonour” 2 Timothy 2:20,21; 2 John 1:9-11.

(3) Separation is not from contact with evil in the world or the church, but from complicity with and conformity to John 17:15; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Galatians 6:1.

(4) The reward of separation is the full manifestation of the divine fatherhood 2 Corinthians 6:17,18 unhindered communion and worship Hebrews 13:13-15 and fruitful service 2 Timothy 2:21 as world-conformity involves the loss of these, though not of salvation. Here, as in all else, Christ is the model. He was “holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners” Hebrews 7:26 and yet in such contact with them for their salvation that the Pharisees, who illustrate the mechanical and ascetic conception of separation (See Scofield “Matthew 3:7”) , judged Him as having lost His Nazarite character. Luke 7:39 Cf ; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 10:27.

2 Timothy 2:20-21

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of and of silver, but also of and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and for the master’s use, and unto every good work.

2 John 1:9-11

9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the , he hath both the Father and the Son.

10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him :

11 For he that biddeth him God speed is of his evil deeds.

John 17:15

I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the , but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14 Be ye not together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what hath light with darkness?

15 And what hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what 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.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye , saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my , saith the Lord Almighty.

1 Corinthians 9:19-23

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself unto all, that I might gain the more.

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

21 To them that are , as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
