I like this article. I haven't read the responses to the article, but the article is outstanding. I can't agree more.
Jesus Creed » Emerging Peter: Abusing Holiness
I get frustrated with my own denomination that has separated holiness from compassionate outreach and evangelism. These things cannot be separated. (See a good prescription at ServantEvangelism.com)
I am, however, truly Wesleyan. So, I do believe that holiness, Christlikeness, love is it. Wesley said that the true essence of perfection is to love God with our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourself.
