Can one live a holy life and how is that?
Fruitylicious is correct we are all sinners in the eyes of God even babies. However, we are made whole with God by accepting his plan he put forth. Which is accepting Jesus as your savior. You see Jesus is God in human form and lived a holy righteous life. Also he was conceived by the Holy Spirit born through a human virgin which makes the plan legal because now Jesus was not born out of sin. Then as He (Jesus) took all sin upon him when he was crucified paid our sin debt in full. NICE!! This is acceptable in the eyes of God so that we can make it to heaven. But we must accept this by faith that this was done and do an about face in our lives and live as Jesus did. I don't know about you but sound good to me. Better than going to hell. And if you don't believe this jargan then you have nothing to worry about. But if your wrong???
Nobody can live a holy life or righteous one...Doesn't matter if its the Pope or Mother Teresa, we all have sinful thoughts whether it is a little or big thoughts... So personally I think your on a losing battle if your contemplating being holy. ;)
I reckon babies would be the only human beings that are holy.
Reading the Sermon on the Mount will give you a shove in the right direction.
