John 17:16 exposes those Christians who try to look, act, talk, and dress like the world: “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” Jesus was definitely not of this world. He was perfect and everything that He did was for the glory of God and the furtherance of His Father’s will. There is a satanic philosophy going around that teaches us to try to reach the world by acting, looking, talking, and dressing like them. This philosophy has quenched the power of the Holy Spirit and has destroyed so many on the strait and narrow road as they turn from holiness and righteousness. This demonic philosophy teaches Christians to justify sin and excuse  the very sin that they have been “saved” (delivered) from. For instance to listen to wicked rock music with heathen rock beats against the clear teachings of Ephesians 5:19, “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”
People claiming to be Christians go to bars, theaters, watch violence, nudity, learn wicked philosophy on television, destroy their bodies with alcohol, tobacco, and gluttony.   Jesus would not live such a life, so why do they justify their sins—because of the fellowship that they keep that justifies and encourages sin. II Corinthians 6:14-17 strongly teaches against this, “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? (WHAT DO YOU AS A CHRISTIAN HAVE IN COMMON WITH THOSE WHO ONLY CLAIM TO BE ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW?????) 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.” How much clearer can it be commanded????!!!!! Do you feel powerless as you strive for the Kingdom of God??  It’s your fellowship!! It’s very simple. How can you be filled with the Holy Spirit of God and fellowship with those who mock and reject HOLINESS that you are supposed to love with all your heart, mind, and soul? They fall into sin, and begin to love the world as the heathen do, and try to get away with as much as possible. They think they can be surrounded by sin, enjoy the company of those around them who are practicing it, and yet escape the penalty of sin. Multitudes have fallen back into sin  and turned away from the Lord as they are influenced by friends, relatives, and fellow workers. 


They wander in the wilderness being condemned by God because they refuse to separate themselves from the heathen around them who talk and persuade them to go after the gods of materialism, rock music, nudity, immorality, and idolatry. A compromise on separation is a vote toward sin that will damn your soul.
They wear abominable clothing, such as women wearing pants against the clear teachings of Deuteronomy 22:5, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” They are ashamed to be covered and veiled as pure and submissive daughters of God as II Corinthians 11:6 teaches us.”  They are encouraged by wrong associations to disobey their husbands, work secular jobs, and live a loud mouth independent selfish life apart from the clear teaches in Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
“Christian” men of today let their hair grow long like a woman’s and begin to act effeminate, wearing clothing that softens them. I Corinthians 11:14 tells us. “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” They make cuttings in their bodies such as tattoos and body piercing against everything that is sacred as taught in God’s Word. Leviticus 19:28 says, “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.” The lack of separation of Christians from the world has sweetened the “salt” by taking away its sting, dulled the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and has justified the sins of the ungodly and perverted to the point that they blatantly and openly commit fornication, immorality, incest, homosexuality, murder of babies, and the twisting of the God-ordained roles of men and women. These now call themselves “Christians”, yet by their fruits ye shall know them—Jesus said (Matt. 7:20).  They aught to read the truth in 1 Corinthians 6:9, “Know ye not that the unrighteous (anyone not obeying God’s commandments) shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
