We can fulfill three responsibilities: to love all believers (1 John 4:21); to be separate and "touch not the unclean thing" (2 Corinthians 6:17, cited from Isaiah 52:11), meaning the religious system; to call believers now, as God will call believers when He judges the religious system, "Come out of her" (Revelation 18:4; compare with Isaiah 52:11). Our testimony will be unified only when believers gather to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 18:20) and practice the God-given pattern of Scripture (Acts 2:41, 42). Not mystified by the foggy confusion surrounding us, we can humbly, yet confidently, follow the clear guidance of Scripture that gathers believers to Christ alone. This assurance and our love for other believers require us to point them to Gods Word, so they likewise will hear, "This is the way, walk ye in it" (Isaiah 30:21).
