God is Holy

 

God is infinitely Holy. He is pure and undefiled. Holiness is an essential character of God and describes His essence, nature, and perfection.  Fundamentally, He is righteous, blameless, and “perfect”.  The word “perfect” is translated “finished," "whole," or "complete," in the Old Testament. God never sins, nor finds the need to repent of sin.  As for God, his way is perfect" (Psalm 18:30); "The law of God is perfect" (Psalm 19:7). Jesus admonished us in the New Testament to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matt. 19:21).
