Dissidens on Separation

by Greg Linscott

Over at Remonstrans, I’ve been enjoying a pleasant and civil conversation with Dissidens.

I found this observation of his thought-provoking…

Jesus himself said “Feed my sheep�. Many of us presume that this task was passed through Peter to us. Yet some actually resist that feeding if it is done by those who don’t share their scruples. Bear in mind here, separation is a good thing. Don’t go off hooting that everyone who opposes you opposes separation. Stop being childish! Often what is opposed are your dockets or schemes of separation. Surely some of these can be matters of conscience. Why must separatists deny conscience here?
