Remember, “Be holy, for I am holy” is NOT a suggestion but a direct command from God Almighty! It is NOT legalism to fully obey God, but it is hypocrisy to ignore His will and claim it is a grey area because you found another preacher or friend to disagree with the “interpretation” of God’s choice of what is holy. To excuse your conduct because it is what you really want to do, instead of protecting others is selfish sin.
Learn to discern. Romans 14:13 says, “Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.” To truly love others you MUST make decisions to REMOVE stumbling blocks that weaken and threaten others, NOT build them!
You cannot be simplistic with your choices and conduct by following the way of the current culture. God demands all His narrow road followers to be “holy in all your conduct“. He decides what He means by that, listen carefully to Him. It takes effort to discern the will of God, but easy to make excuses by looking at others for your answers.
1 Peter 1:14-16 states, “as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’”
