Holiness and Purity in the Church

Posted by on Mar 29, 2008 in discipleship | Comments Off

On Monday, I’m planning to publish a blog post about adultery and the church. Primarily, I want to discuss dealing with believers who commit adultery (and other sins). But, in the process of writing that blog post, I realized that my understanding of holiness and purity in the church may be different than others.

So, I ask my readers the following questions: What does it mean for the church to be holy? What does it mean for the church to be pure? How does the church become holy and pure? How does the church maintain holiness and purity?
