One has to wonder at the sheer blindness or stupidity of the Mayor of Wadsworth when he recently praised Davey pack and his cult for their new HQ buildings. Little does he know that Davey considers all non-COG folk to be infidels.
A second reason “this people” is described as unclean is that they have not remained separate from the world. Here is the level of purity that God expects from His servants: “Be you not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial [Satan]? Or what part has he that believes with an infidel? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For ye [the plural is used throughout] are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Wherefore COME OUT from among them, and be ye SEPARATE, says the Lord, and touch not the UNCLEAN THING; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” (II Cor. 6:14-18). Things being clean or unclean, holy or unholy, separate or together with the unclean, are here seen to be NEW Testament concerns, not merely dusty Old Testament rules and regulations for ancient Israel.
