Holiness: Positional and Practical
December 29, 2013 Speaker: Bob DeWaay
Holiness is the result of means of grace and is for all, not just some elitists. Holiness is grounded in the nature of God. In Leviticus, the holiness of God is contrasted with the defilement of the Israelites. We show how external rule keeping does not create holiness. Colossians 2 shows that strict lists of rules do not result in true holiness. Luther is cited several times on this issue during this lecture. We discuss how holy behavior is grounded in the reality of being a holy people, set apart by God and for God.
