“God is holy. This expresses the highest idea we can form of ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. It includes both a negative and positive sense. It denotes the absence of whatever is weak, selfish, sinful, and polluted; and the presence of essential purity, goodness, love, and every excellency. God is holy. ‘He CANNOT be tempted with evil; NEITHER tempteth he any man,’ James 1:13.”
