Axioms of Separation

(Condensed from Pastor John E. Ashbrook’s book by the same name)
  1. Scripture forbids us to have fellowship with unbelief.
  2. Scripture commands us to reprove apostasy.
  3. Scripture teaches us that we must purge unbelief if we can.
  4. Scripture teaches that believers and unbelievers cannot be yoked together in spiritual endeavor. (II Cor 6:14-18)
  5. Scripture teaches us to separate from disobedient brethren.
  6. God’s work done God’s way produces only good results. God’s work done man’s way produces good and bad results.
  7. Do not affiliate your church with any church, mission, movement or evangelistic effort which does not fully believe the Word of God.
  8. Do not affiliate your church with any church, mission, movement or evangelistic effort which does not practice biblical separation.
  9. You cannot preserve a position without crusading for it.
  10. When in doubt, don’t join.
  11. Separation is not the answer to every disagreement between brethren.
  12. The spirit of God has never led one Christian contrary to one word of the Word of God.
  13. At any given time of church history, God is most severe on those whom he is using at the moment.
