ABOUT THE BOOK
Why is it so hard to trust God sometimes?
If God is holy, then He can’t sin.
If God can’t sin, then He can’t sin against you. If He can’t sin against you, shouldn’t that make Him the most trustworthy being there is?
Bestselling author Jackie Hill Perry, in her much-anticipated follow-up to Gay Girl, Good God, helps us find the reason we don’t trust God—we misunderstand His holiness.
In Holier Than Thou, Jackie walks us through Scripture, shaking the dust off of “holy” as we’ve come to know it and revealing it for what it really is: good news. In these pages, we will see that God is not like us. He is different. He is holy. And that’s exactly what makes Him trustworthy. As it turns out, God being “holier than thou” is actually the best news in the world, and it’s the key to trusting Him.
You've primarily viewed God's holiness to mean He's a righteous and angry judge who will punish sinners for the bad things we do—a flawed and limited perspective that has not only robbed you of the joy and peace but has also failed to compel you to trust Him.
He is set apart from and better than everything else in this broken world—which also means He’s trustworthy!
God's holiness means that He is different from us in the most perfect way imaginable.
