It seems the word "Seperation" varies as much as "Holiness" does???

Many folks preach seperation from the world but are they truely seperate?

Many have their own version of what "seperate" means?

Many preach seperation from their soapbox but participate in many things that aren't seperate...

for example... NO MOvies but a Broadway Production is okay...

NO Football games but a "Show" in Branson is okay...

No Bowling but fishing & hunting okay...


So many definitions of "seperate" but so many opinions as to what seperate really is...

any body got a take on this??

Perhaps because one of the primary meanings of Holy is to be set apart (separate)?

Perhaps it all still goes back to "standards".

What is the manifestation that one is either holy, or set apart, or seperate?

let me gore an ox for you.

anyone who knows anything about Golf knows that Golf and Golf Courses is one of the hottest spots for gambling. Anyone saying that Pro baseball is worldly because of what happens at a game, but still goes to a golf course where all kinds of worldly activity is taking place (including rampant alcohol consumption and gambling) is not being intelectually honest.

Why can't we just be happy with upholding the standards that are in place at our local assembly and taught by our personal Pastor's! Instead of Peeking through everyone else's windows to make sure they aren't breaking any "rules" that you have to follow.

When I lived in Wisconsin, there was a story in the paper about one of the Golf courses being frequented by "exotic dancers" all natural, from a near by adult establishment and being paid for favors. I don't think that happens at Ballparks does it?

Do those that try and police others standards do so because "if they have to live by them then so should everyone else"?

I have always felt that people that harp on standards, wish that everyone had to live just like they do OR they wish they could get away with (for lack of better words) not having to live by them. Why else do people make such a big deal out of how other people live as far as standards.

Doesn't the Bible say not to judge others and that we are known by the fruit we bare. I smell some rotten fruit!!
