      Since "the purest churches under heaven are subject both to mixture
      and error", because of the incompleteness of our sanctification and
      imperfection in our knowledge, therefore it is necessary that there
      will be error in even the purest churches you find. So as to the
      general rule it can't be its mere presence that is grounds for
      withdrawal and disfellowshipping. I think you have to get back into
      the old distinction between true and false churches (cf. Scottish
      Confession of Faith ch. 18; Belgic Confession of Faith article 29) to
      demarcate the line between communion and withdrawal.
