What Is Holiness?
Index

Carol Brooks
Edited By Vicki Narlee

Since the Bible says no one will see the Lord without Holiness [Hebrews 12:14], perhaps it would be wise to know exactly what it means by “holiness”.

Part I

Holiness
The Holiness of God..
God does not conform to a standard of holiness. He is the standard of holiness.
Holiness Is Not Optional
An Unholy Person Cannot Approach a Holy God
The Instructions to Be Holy

*********
 

Part II

What Is Holiness?
The Biblical answer is short. Holiness consists of the intertwined and inseparable concepts of Separation and Perfection.

Separation

Timeless Spiritual Principles
Be Ye Holy
Come Out From Among Them
A Holy "Nation"

Change of Familial Status and Citizenship

The Warnings
The Example of Esau

In Summary.

Applying The Principles Of Separation
Modern Day Pharisees
Money And Material Possessions
Physical Pleasures
Food and Alcohol
Dancing
Tobacco
Movies and Televisions
Gambling
Clothing
Jewelry
Cosmetics
Tattoos

Whatsoever Is Not Of Faith Is Sin
Lawful But Not Expedient

Conclusion... Outward Holiness Springs From Inner Sanctification
