I agree with Albert's comment. I believe it means separate yourself from unbelievers, those that are known by their fruits, lest they bring the believer down. Only a remnant are God's people. Some think they are but, the lifestyle they live speaks otherwise.

I believe the Lord is refering to the false relitious world, to seperate yourselves from them....as they are unclean
Albert Camper's comment on 2013-06-24 13:03:09:
means separation. does not mean continuation
of what we used to do, with the people we
used to do things with.
