Be thou holy?
« on: February 22, 2010, 09:04:53 PM »

Is it possible for a human being to be " HOLY " even as Christ is holy ? I know sometimes holy can mean " set apart "as well. That is my question though, in what context was Paul referring to when he made that statement. ( I believe it was Paul, could be wrong).

WHAT IS IT TO BE HOLY? IS ONLY GOD HOLY?

THANKS DON


Dear Don:

All of God's people must be holy. Holy means to be in close contact with God, to be consecrated to God, to be set aside for special use by God, to be a Saint of God.  And yes, we are to "BE holy"--"But as He which has called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation [Gk: 'conduct and behaviour']"  (I Pet. 1:15-16).  One can only be holy if he has the Holy Spirit of God.

God be with you,

Ray
