“These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:19 These are they who separate themselves, sensual, not having the Spirit - Having natural senses and understanding only, not the Spirit of God; otherwise they could not separate. For that it is a sin, and a very heinous one, to separate from the church, is out of all question. But then it should be observed, That by the church is meant a body of living Christians, who are an habitation of God through the Spirit: That by separating is understood, renouncing all religious intercourse with them; no longer joining with them in solemn prayer, or the other public offices of religion: and, That we have no more authority from scripture to call even this schism, than to call it murder.
Jude 1:19 These be they. Already this is being fulfilled. Who separate themselves. Who separate themselves from God and the communion of saints. Sensual, having not the Spirit. Living an animal rather than a spiritual life.
