besides God, who is the holiest person to live on earth?
No one. Romans 3:23
23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,+
Jesus Christ without a doubt!
I can’t answer that question without a scripture, because our Creator knows the answer. I can’t read hearts and minds.
That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned—.
So, it seems that there is a tie – among 7.4 billion people – understanding that “men’ refers to all humankind, males and females.
Through faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, however, those called to be holy ones receive holiness by faith in the ransom sacrifice of Christ. Holiness, then, does not inhere in them, or belong to them, through their own merit, but it comes to them through Jesus Christ.—Romans 3:23-26.
There will be a time when all who put faith and Jesus, obediently believe in and practice his truth, and endure to the end will be given holiness and salvation.
And you will be hated by all people on account of my name, but the one who has endured to the end will be saved.
The scriptures prophesied that a great multitude dressed in white robes will declare that they owe salvation to their God, and to the Lamb
Revelation 7:9, 10
After this I saw, and look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes; and there were palm branches in their hands. 10 And they keep shouting with a loud voice, saying: “Salvation we owe to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
The white robes denote holiness attributed to them. God’s purpose for humankind will one day be fulfilled, to have his holy family in heaven and on earth. Ephesians 1:11
Define “holiest” in this context, please. And then tell us why you imagine we would know the answer…if there is one…better than you do.
no one is holy but God, all humans sin and fall short of the holy spirit.
The Apostles of the LORD who’ve seen Him and walked with Him. There are a number of us walking around out there. We’re chosen, though. It’s not something you can just earn, but neither is salvation.
No one is holy except through the blood of the lamb
That would have to be God’s only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus obeyed his Father right down to his death on the torture stake. Why would anyone die for wicked sinful people like us? John 3:16 “God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” Faithful people of all nationalities, languages and backgrounds have been given a second chance to do things according to God’s standards and regulations. No one is forced into believing anything nor are they forced to listen to what God tells them in the Scriptures. Very few people listened to Jesus when he preached, that is, compared to the number of people that existed at that time. It is the same today. compared to the many billions living today, only 8.3 million are taking the Bible seriously and only about 10 million are studying the Bible. Jehovah’s Witnesses take the Bible seriously and use it everyday in preaching the good news that Jesus taught his followers to preach.
