Genius is the ultimate source of music knowledge, created by scholars like you who share facts and insight about the songs and artists they love. Perry relies heavily on Scripture in this book, and I really appreciated the way that she explained, drew connections, and looked to the original text . You can tell that this book was well researched and prayed over.
- These “hell houses” are a real thing, but they typically let people leave with a tract or two in hand; they don’t kidnap people.
- But as a reader I was bored, and as a learner I was frustrated.

- It is a call for reflection, empathy, compassion and unconditional love.
- Jesus encountered the same thing with the Pharisees.
- This is especially true of Tomin, a humble villager-turned-general, who gives a priest an epic verbal reaming over how they’re corrupting the Ori religion to oppress and destroy.
He’s still the most evil character in the entire movie. And in a movie of Nazis vs. criminals, that’s really saying something. The con artist Father Cornello from Fullmetal Alchemist puts on a Good Shepherd front but he shows himself a self-righteous prick to Edward. May we never champion such injustice against humanity.

Each purchase comes with a 30-day money- wts deski back guarantee. A compelling and convicting plea to behold and believe God and His holiness to become more like Him. Would recommend the audio book as well because Jackie’s narration is beautiful.
If people haven’t watched this, they may assume that Father Ted was an affectionate, if sharp tongued parody. There is an interesting portrayal of this in Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park. On one hand, it is Played Straight with Sir Thomas Bertram, who remains an innocent with Incorruptible Pure Pureness.

And in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God as he hath spoken. Juroung from Strider styles himself as the “true disciple” of Big Bad Grandmaster Meio, worshiping him as a deity to the point of Undying Loyalty.
He doesn’t need to be “right” or “holy” to convince himself of his own superiority, they’re more like hobbies. According to the Orthodox Christian doctrine, the true Christian is an inversion of it. He/she should come through learning about your sins and leaving by God’s commandments and come to the conclusion that you are a sinner, and the worst of them. They say that is the ideal that we should all be following, if we really want to saved by God. Otherwise, your soul is in GREAT peril……or at least that’s what they say, because on the other hand… Averted in the short-lived Threshold where astrophysicist Lucas Pegg was established as a deeply religious person…
I appreciate Jackie’s passionate ministry & voice deeply, and both of those things come through in this book. I would agree, however, with other reviews that note the choppy nature of the book’s flow. It felt like the breadth of the topic was seemingly crammed into 150 pages. I would have liked more focus onto the tagline of the book, “how God’s holiness helps us trust Him.” Overall, this is a fantastic book written with stunning prose that leaves readers thoughtful & considerate of God’s holiness in a fresh way. But it also may leave readers feeling confused and befuddled as they struggle to catch the book’s overall flow and roadmap. I love JHP’s poetic style, and I’ve heard Jackie’s voice enough that I felt like she was reading it to me as I read.
I read some reviews on the book prior to reading it- and some criticize that she drew a lot of quotes from other more well known holiness authors. While there was a lot of quotes from other people, she still added plenty of her own commentary on those authors, which I enjoyed just as much. This book was soaked in scripture , and I now feel like I have a deeper understanding not only of holiness, but of the trinity, idolatry, righteousness, and justice.

Believe You Could Be Or Are Your Own Jesus
Hopefully, you never find yourself responding in the way I did as an impulsive teenager, but I am certain you understand the feeling behind the response. Because his fellow Christians wanted to be forgiving and Christ-like, no one ever confronted Bob on his holier-than-thou attitude, not even the pastor. One Wednesday evening several of us were talking about youth ministry at a local drug rehabilitation center, and Bob included himself in the conversation. We missed a golden opportunity to write this post last Monday, but rather than wait another 360 days for a chance to redeem ourselves, we’re going to take courage from Petruchio’s words from The Taming of the Shrew—that it’s “Better once than never.” (5.1.150).
When sharing that good, good news, we should—dare I say must—begin with “Did you know that God is holy? ” As you travel through the story, then, venturing into necessary subjects like sin and judgment, God is the context by which both land. Perhaps the focus on how holiness relates to God’s trustworthiness is more unique to Perry’s book than any other book on holiness.
