I think we must all remember what our Saviour did (Concerning this topic.): Matthew 9:10-13 “And it came to pass, as [Yahusha] sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But when [Yahusha] heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Luke 15:1 “Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.” See also Mark 2:15,16 & Luke 5:30, 7:34
If our Messiah ministered to and fellowshipped with sinners, He being pure, how much the more should we do likewise? For; “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and [Yhwh] hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6 We, too, are sinners! Why else would we need to repent? (I am thinking of where John the Baptist said to those on the banks of Jordan to “repent & be baptised”, as well as the fact that the Bible later says we need the Baptism of His spirit, no more “the Baptism of John”.
You do not need to read the following if you are familiar with that idea. (Act 19:1-5 “And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on [Messiah Yahusha]. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the [Master Yahusha].”)
