"Separation is not always the answer. I know that statement seems contradictory to the fundamentalist ideal, but it is really not. Remaining in fellowship with people with whom we disagree and knowing how to engage in a good controversial debate has been essential to our faith and will be in the future. If our habit is to avoid controversy at all costs, we will commit one of two grievous errors. Either will leave important fellowship at the first sign of trouble, or we will remain and ignore essential issues for the sake of the peace. This is not how New Testament Christianity has operated and prospered through the centuries."
