Separation is simply the application of metabolized doctrine to relationships in life.
Separation is the technique of switching from personal love to impersonal love when dealing with friends or loved ones in the cosmic system.
Separation one establishes his priorities in life and the application of doctrine by which one disassociates himself with any hindrance to momentum from friends and loved ones.
“Separation unto” the principle of perpetuating momentum in the PPOG.
“Separation from” be applied to both believers and unbelievers in the cosmic system.
It does not necessarily have to be physical separation.
Mental separation – there is one-way antagonism from those in the cosmic system toward you.
Mental separation emphasizes the integrity, honor and doctrinal application of the believer residing inside the PPOG.
Impersonal love emphasizes personal love for God while setting aside the functions of personal love for friends or loved ones.
Mental separation – avoids maligning, judging, hating, criticizing, seeking revenge, hurting those with whom youve been intimate with in the past.
