THE BENEFITS OF KNOWING `HOLY' GOD
A WORD IS INCREASINGLY BEING DROPPED FROM USE IN OUR SECULAR
SOCIETY. IT IS SAD BECAUSE IT IS AN INFINITELY GOOD WORD THAT

WAS ONCE CALLED TRUTH BE QUESTIONED.
AS ISAIAH DESCRIBED THE SOCIETY OF HIS DAY THAT HAD TURNED THEIR

ISA 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever
in their own sight.

HAVE THE BOYS OR THEIR ATTORNEY EVER HEARD OF THE WORD "HOLY"
AND ANYTHING THAT IT IMPLIES? SADLY, BASIC HUMAN VALUES BECOME
MEANINGLESS WITH A REFERENCE TO WHAT IS "HOLY!"
HEB 12:14 Make every effort to live in peace ...
