“Come out and be separate…” “Be holy unto the Lord…” What do these commandments really mean for us today? Is holiness even attainable? Be sure and join Dr. Brown to discuss this issue today on the Line of Fire!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Our standard is very high; it is as high as God Himself. He is the One who says, “Be holy as I am holy,” and that we must become like Him. In the natural, we can never attain this, but by His Spirit we can change and be holy. That is the power of the blood of Jesus.
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Holiness means becoming like Jesus in thought, word, and deed. It is beautiful, not binding; it is pure love, and our highest calling in God. Holiness to the Lord is the foundation of our Jesus revolution, the message that changes us, and we bring that can change the world. It is our counter-culture message.
Revolution: The Call to Holy Warby Dr. Brown: This book is not a call for the violent overthrow of the government, nor is it a call to take up arms, nor is it a call to political activism in and of itself. It is a call to something far more extreme, a call to live out the gospel…
How Saved Are We? by Dr. Brown: This unsettling book challenges us to ask ourselves what kind of born-again experience we have had if it calls for almost no personal sacrifice, produces virtually no separation from the world, and breeds practically no hatred of sin.
