What counts as holy? 2

A line from Noble’s sermon this afternoon:

God couldn’t give a crap about your happiness when it comes to his holiness.

If God is holy, what does he give a crap about?

Should the holiness of God have any effect on how we talk about him?

    *sigh* Sometimes it’s just too easy. Isaiah 6, plain as day.

    The first thing Isaiah says when he is greeted with a glimpse of the holiness of God is to say, and I quote,

    Woe is me, for I am ruined!
    Because I am a man of unclean lips,
    And I live among a people of unclean lips;
    For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

    And then, in amazing grace, God sends an angel with a hot coal – that he picks up with TONGS, no less – to touch his lips to purify them and him so that he may then proclaim the word that God is about to give him for His people.

    May God be gracious to likewise open this man’s eyes.

    Are we really surprised CEO Noble would use such language to describe God’s feelings? I for one am not surprised at the filth that comes from Noble’s mouth.

    Colossians 3:8 (New International Version)

    8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.

    Titus 2:7-8 (New International Version)

    7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

    So according to Noble life example(refer to his filthy mouth) God must not care if we violate Col 3:8 over and over again while never repenting. As long as we just keep chanting “No perfect people” and it’s all good!
