We are told in Ephesians 4:24 that we must “put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” One of the reasons that biblical separation is not seen or even desired by many is that the New Birth is not viewed in its fullness. What we mean by this is that the New Birth is simply viewed as “salvation,” which is basically sins forgiven and adoption. “I’m no longer on my way to hell, but to heaven; I am no longer under the wrath of God.” Thank God this is true, for the New Birth does bring salvation from sins and deliverance from hell. But it must be seen from a further perspective as well.
