Re: Don't Delay Dealing with Error

When unbelievers try to sway any fellowship away from God's Word, true believers must insist that they repent or leave. If they allow the evil to gain sufficient strength to force "dialogue" over clear scriptural matters, they will have already lost the battle. Either cast them out immediately, or risk having to fight for truth against terrible odds.... --Calvary Contender, adapted

But if error is already entrenched... "As soon as I saw, or thought I saw, that error had become firmly established, I did not deliberate, but quitted the body at once. Since then my one counsel has been, "Come ye out from among them." --Spurgeon

"..deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus...purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump...now I have written to you not to associate intimately, if any man CALLED A BROTHER and is either a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one not to eat. ...therefore PUT OUT FROM YOU the evil one." (~1Cor5:5-13)

In the O.T. "..that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God.." (Deu13:5)

In the N.T. "..if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he neglects to hear the church, let him be to you as a heathen and a tax-collector." (Mt18:17)

Otherwise:
"..come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you.."(2Cor6:17)

"..come out of her, My people, that you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues." (Rev18:4) (VW)
