[ Separation Truth ]
Separation Truth is Fundamental
To the Believer's New Life in Christ!
What does this Biblical expression really mean? How should we be challenged by it today? What is "the camp"? Why is Christ outside of it? Is this written for us in the Church of Jesus Christ? What is the cost of going to Him "outside the camp"? Where are you located in this regard?
The Scriptural doctrine of Church Discipline is plain for all to see. When God called Israel out of Egypt to be a peculiar people unto Himself, He also instituted the principles of judgment and discipline. It was an obvious necessity for the saints and an odious warning to the sinner. When Jesus Christ began building His Church, judgment and discipline were right there as well. Proper Discipline is an indicator of a Church's spiritual health. Improper Discipline is a tool of the divisive spirit.
