II 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.

II John 9 – 11 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

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

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

In Second Corinthians six

We are told to separate,

Come out from sin and unbelief,

Not the least to hesitate;

God promise He will receive

When you obey His command,

And withdraw from apostasy,

And upon the Bible stand.

Separation’s a rocky road,

Many friends won’t understand;

They’ll misinterpret your purpose,

Criticise your faith’s demand;

But you will of course remember,

Your Lord was misunderstood,

You should treat your criticisers

As you feel the Saviour would.

“Blessed are ye when men revile you,

Falsely, for His own name’s sake;”

Gladly for the Lord to suffer

When His glory is at stake;

Let not trials make you bitter,

Rather let them make you sweet,

Counting it a blessed privilege

To lay all at Jesus’ feet.
