Alma 5:57

And now I say unto you,
all you that are desirous
to follow the voice of the good shepherd,
come ye out from the wicked,
and be ye separate,
and touch not their unclean things;
and behold, their names shall be blotted out,
that the names of the wicked
shall not be numbered among the names of the righteous,
that the word of God may be fulfilled, which saith:
The names of the wicked
shall not be mingled
with the names of my people;

This verse reminds me of Jesus’ teaching about a man not being able to serve two masters. (Matthew 6:24)

To follow the voice of the good shepherd, we have to “come out from the wicked”, “be separate”, and “touch not their unclean things.”

On the flip side, if we are touching unclean things, are not separate, and are hanging with the wicked, then no matter how much we may say we love Jesus, we are not following his voice.

What I love about the scriptures is the principles are so versatile. A million people could read these verses and find specific applications for their own lives.
