Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
The apostle Paul referred to Isaiah 52:11 to help make his point that Christians are called out of the world and are to be separate—sanctified—set apart. We must live in the world, but we are not to be of the world (John 17:14-18).
For more about the transformation Christians are called to make, see the section on “Christian Conversion.”
