“Our speaker on Sunday gave an awesome illustration with an added visual about us being no part of this world. He brought along this bottle filled with two different oils. Although they are together inside the same bottle, they do not mix with each other. They remain separate. Such a simple and fitting illustration! We have no choice but to live in this world but we do, however, make the choice on whether we get involved in the affairs or mimic the lifestyles of this world. This can be a great visual illustration and point to bring out to a Bible student or just anyone needing encouragement from being beat down by this old system (John 18:36).”

Sorry, but it seems to me how speaker made wrong illustration. First and main reason of all --- you said that bottle is filled with TWO DIFFERENT oils. Here is the answer, Two Different oils. So, oils are already different,  outside the bottle or inside the bottle. He used oils that are made of different substances (numbers of molecules and atoms and  connections  between them).  

But human specie is all the same. If you put people from Africa or those from Asia in North Pole area all of them will feel cold. If you put Christian or Atheist in some temptation, all of them will respond in similar ways.

World is not  black/white always, only sometimes. Most of the time is in colors. 

So, "not to be part of the world" in fact not existing, because all people are the same, making good and bad things and living in interactions with other "oils".
