Holiness is normal Christianity. Willfully sinning without fully repenting is leaving Christ, being a prodigal son.

Abiding in Christ is required to not be cut off, thrown into the fire and burned. We must overcome by God’s enabling grace.

WITHOUT HOLINESS, no one will see the Lord, but will FALL SHORT OF THE GRACE OF GOD!

“Follow after peace with ALL men, and the SANCTIFICATION WITHOUT WHICH NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD, looking carefully lest there be any man who FALLS SHORT OF THE GRACE OF GOD; lest any ROOT OF BITTERNESS springing up trouble you, and many be DEFILED by it.” – Hebrews 12:14-15

God’s holiness standard, Ephesians 4:11-16

11 He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers; 12 for the PERFECTING of the saints, to the work of serving, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 *UNTIL WE ALL* ATTAIN to the UNITY of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a FULL GROWN man, to THE MEASURE OF THE STATURE OF THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST; 14 that we may no longer be children, tossed back and forth and carried about with every WIND OF DOCTRINE [“once saved, always saved” (OSAS), “it’s hard to lose one’s salvation,” “only believe,” don’t have to actually abide in Christ to be “in Christ,” etc.], by the TRICKERY of men , in CRAFTINESS, after the WILES OF ERROR; [repeating the OSAS greatest hits verses over and over, taken out of context; ignoring the 80 that tell the truth] 15 but speaking TRUTH in love, we may GROW UP IN ALL THINGS INTO HIM, who is the head, Christ; 16 from whom all the body, being fitted and knit together through that which every joint supplies, according to the working in measure of each individual part, makes the body increase to the building up of itself in LOVE.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.” – Romans 8:14
