Grounds for separation

Here are the grounds for separation from certain professing Christians:

I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a RAILER, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
(I Corinthians 5:9-13)

These are the grounds for separation, and there are others as well, but note, that the way you conduct meetings is not included as grounds for separation.

A RAILER is one who makes false accusations. So. Ironically, it’s the ones who say that all pastors are evil, all churches are evil etc. who are the ones who need to be disfellowshipped, for they make false, slanderous accusations against many of the body of Christ.

The fail to “discern the Lord’s body”, Paul said in 1 Cor. 11:29, and they fall under judgment and can get sick and die before their time.

 

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. (I John 3:14)
