Separation: Sinful or Commanded

Separation without a proper cause from churches that are established on true scriptural grounds (though perhaps failing in practice in matters of small concern) is no small sin; but separation from sinful practices and disorderly ways, and false unwarranted methods of worship, is a fulfilling of the command not to take part in other men's sins. To delight in the company, fellowship, society and conversation of dubious and headstrong people manifests a spirit that is not committed to Christ.

—John Owen, 'Duties of Christian Fellowship' (Puritan Paperback), pg. 49–50
