What is holiness in 2021?

There are some very important questions we need to ask ourselves regarding holiness in 2021.

Is holiness still for the modern man? What is holiness and who cares in this day and age? Is it still “cool” to talk of holiness? When was the last time you heard a contemporary message on holiness? Who needs to be holy? What is holiness? What holiness is not? How does one come by holiness? Imputed and outworked holiness.

Holiness is not predominately discussed in Christian circles, and we need to ask ourselves why. Maybe it is because holiness is who God is  (1 Peter 1: 15-16) and the more you desire to be holy, the more you act like your creator.

Over the month of October and November we have discussed holiness in depth with the aim of challenging our ideas of holiness. 

Firstly, you should know holiness is not: 

Lies and make believe, 

business tricks that are not for the Christian,

 anger, hatred, jealousy, 

spirit of non-cooperation,

 antagonism,

 unforgiveness,

the Holy Spirit in an unholy body, attitude, 

bitterness,

 undermining or 

indifference.

In fact when you study holiness there are certain aspects to consider:
