Theological Term of the Week: Holiness

theological-term-of-the-week

 

This week’s term: Holiness (Communicable) – The quality or state of being holy. As an attribute of God, it means to be absolutely flawless in all characteristics and activities. In this sense, it is not to be seen as excellence in God’s conduct, by which He perfectly follows holy principles, but the basic personal attribute of God, from which all other attributes flow, and by which the principles of holiness become principles. 

Last week’s term: Perfection (Non-Communicable) – The quality or condition of being absolutely without flaw, or necessity. Concerning God, it is not to be seen as a goal; or an attainment, but the basic state of His being from which the standard of perfection is derived.
