Separate unto Salvation
James 1:21 (KJB) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
This verse draws a certain line. It calls for man to make a clean cut from all kinds of evil and wickedness and be set apart for things of God. It does not say separate from some things but clearly instructs mankind to step away, move apart from, or separate themselves from all things found by God to be spiritually soiled.
Secondly, this verse instructs man to receive and apply God’s Word in his or her life able to impart salvation to their soul. Salvation is not found in anything other than placing one’s hope in the power and presence of God.
