The holiness of God applies to more than his moral goodness. It refers to the "otherliness," the categorical solitude enfolding the whole divine being. God is different from everything else. He is other, he is holy. Humanity's grandest conceptions do no more justice to the living God than can a child's painted sun capture the magnitude of our nearest star. His righteousness is more radiant than any eye can stand to see. It is a stellar inferno emitting vast, violent flares into the cosmic darkness. Flaming tongues of moral zeal lick out from his burning presence to consume all impurity.  

His grace is also holy, otherly. God's unqualified favor is more unbounded than any creature can comprehend, more inexhaustible for our needs than the sun. It falls on Mars and Mercury, regardless of which seems nearer to the source. It is a ray speeding across unfathomable distances with light and warmth in its arms. His grace fans life where there only barren fields of ice, making winter into spring. The holiness of God means he is as otherly in his generosity as he is in his justice. He is good to the point of inducing fear, and his goodwill leads to peace surpassing all understanding.

POLL: I'm debating whether to use G+ to 1.) share my writing and 2.) engage others in cultural and biblical discussion. How frequently do you view G+?

Despite being a longtime San Diego resident, today was my first visit to Cabrillo Point. Now I wonder why I didn't go sooner, beautiful place with many interesting features. Tide pools and coves, military batteries, and a lighthouse you can tour. I shot all of these with my phone, which, incidentally, I dropped and shattered today. Sadness.

I wrote this to answer questions I often receive about how I came to embrace infant baptism, while still holding firm that we are saved by grace alone, through faith in Christ alone. This is an essential subject, and here is my weak effort. Many blessings to you. http://www.michaelspotts.com/post/11666835786/infant-baptism-bogus-or-blessing
