Show synopsis Author and former pastor Mark Rutland explores the topic of sanctification and how believers can exude it in their daily lives in his latest release, Holiness. Rutland writes that overcoming feelings of guilt and condemnation are the stumbling blocks to proper relationship with God. He writes: ?Bypassing holiness is certainly not new?Sometimes holiness disappears under the scorn of a contemporary culture that finds the word awkward and embarrassing. The word has been abuse and despised, but as long as there is a Bible anywhere in the world, it will never disappear.? Also examined is the postmodern church's view of holiness and what Scripture communicates about this often-misunderstood concept of Christianity. Rutland writes: ?The modern church is the Disneyland of denial and deception. Our masks are so winsome and our religiosity so convincing that the game of ?fool me?fool you? has turned the community of faith into a masquerade ball for the willingly deluded.? Using modern-day vignettes and biblical characters to illustrate the differences in true and false holiness, Rutland motivates readers to recognize the power of God, step out into that power, and walk into their God-given destiny.
