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.
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.
