Approach: Reading a few biblical passages to understand how and why God's character is good.

Hermeneutic objective: Develop one's skill in observation and logically arrive to a conclusion.

Theological objective:

1. The moral standard for good is determined by God and His word.

2. Moral goodness, holiness, includes the removal of all sin including the human body.

3. In consideration of the above, when God says, "be holy for I am holy," He is indicating that God's moral standard is embedded in the very nature of God.

God is morally good, because His character is intrinsically free of sin. And only those who are holy can approach God, because sin cannot come into the presence of God.
