Recently, I heard “come out from her and be separate,” while responding to a friend on Facebook.
This is yet one more scripture that shows that holiness really is required for sonship. When we touch unclean things, we make ourselves a prodigal. We forfeit our birthright.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18
Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What agreement has Christ with Belial? Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever?
What agreement has a temple of God with idols? For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
Therefore, “‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you.
I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.”
