Be Holy as your Father in heaven is Holy

Phew! that's a tough command.

But impossible? Naah! If it was impossible, God would have known that it's impossible and not commanded us this. But, since he's commanded us to be holy, we need to seriously consider what it means to become holy.

When you hear the word Holy, the picture that might come to our minds are of saints or angels, with a big, glowing halo above their heads. Well, holiness does not mean that. But it means purity of heart, mind/thoughts, body and deeds/actions. Matthew 12:34 - "For out of the fullness of your heart the mouth speaks."

Holiness is not a condition for the elect. But it is a requirement for all.

Bible: Is it genuine?

Why should anyone believe that Bible is genuine, unaltered and true revelation from God?

Most people seem to criticize the authenticity of this holy book...I have gone through many websites like youtube and other social networking sites, where people debate, argue pointlessly and irrationally condemning other religious faiths and their holy scriptures. But unfortunately, those who quarrel & use perverse language have not read these holy books nor know anything about others faith. They, I'm sure, most likely wouldn't have even read their own Holy scriptures.
