What does the Bible really teach about who we should separate from? How far should we seperate? How many of the issues we seperate over are truly Biblical issues and how many are mere preferences? (like we all know Luke 2427 and I aren't going to worship in the same place lol, but *I* recognize that is *my* preference and not an issue of Biblical proportions) I'd like the discussion to start with what scripture actually says about Christian's seperating from one another, as though I know nothing about it, and include historical bases/excuses for one group seperating from another (excluding the initial seperation from the RC as it was/is clearly corrupt in seeking to control man's free access to God). I am having distinct issues at the moment on the idea of "being seperate" within Christian circles. It seems that most of the reasons I have been "seperate" are based mostly on someone else's idea of what is "worldly" or "not really Christian at all" rather than a true perspective of what scripture really expects. So help me out and tell me what you believe God has to say about seperating from other denominations/groups/individuals.
