…just use the ambiguous and ubiquitous “holiness,” “faith development,” or “spiritual transformation”.
The founder of the research institute, George Barna, said that holiness is a matter embraced by the Christian Church, but not many Americans focus on it in their faith development. … Many adults describe holiness as possessing a positive attitude toward God and life. … When asked what makes up holiness, 21 percent answered, “I don’t know.” Other responses fell into categories such as “being Christ-like” (19 percent), making faith your top priority in life (18 percent), living a pure or sinless lifestyle (12 percent), and having a good attitude about people and life (10 percent). Categories receiving still smaller percentages included focusing completely on God (9 percent), being guided by the Holy Spirit (9 percent), being born again (8 percent), reflecting the character of God (7 percent), exhibiting a moral lifestyle (5 percent), and accepting and practicing biblical truth (5 percent).
Holiness, holiness is what I long for….Holiness, holiness is what I need (CCM band now kick in)
