“I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in others.” Holiness believers

i believe the more holy we get,the more we mourn over our own unholiness as well

I believe the holier we get the more we rejoice over HIS holiness!

our goal is not piety but true worshipers.

amen,my brother-He alone is holy

I don’t agree with this, did Christ give you all of himself or just a little bit? Does he live inside you permanently or does he just come every now and then? You are made righteous and Holy by the blood of Christ and you are sanctified by the Holy spirit and washed in the blood. Jesus Christ does not share his temple with unholiness so if you’re in Christ then you are a new creation! And if the spirit of God dwells in you then you are righteous and Holy, sanctified by his very spirit and not our own works, which is was this view implies, a works mentality

We come into the Holy of Holies not because of our own holiness but because of his holiness that he has given us and the vail has been torn and taken away so that we unlike the jews don’t have to purify ourselves, but we are purified by Jesus Christ and his works on the cross

The inward man is holy but OHH the outer man. “Who shall deliver us from the body of death.”

The actions and attitudes of the flesh and soul that override our spirit are the things that are unholy that grieve us.

Charles, that’s about the only #orthodox thing you’ve ever said in this group John Ruffle

John the Baptist aimed his ministry toward holiness. Though I’m sure he often felt like it, he didn’t seem to have time to mourn.
Instead he would yell at the top of his lungs, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!”
The shortest sentence in the new testament is “Jesus wept.”
As humans we experience these emotions, but shortly after it is important to move on to the matter at hand. Take note of how short that sentence is! That’s how short of a fuse we should give our emotions. We have work ahead of us!
