People usually define holiness as being set apart. The more I study holiness I see the set apart piece as more the result of holiness than the definition of holiness. It is like equating a car with the road. Cars are meant to be on roads but cars aren’t the road. Holiness is sacred. It is pure. The result of that purity is that holy things find their own space where the impure and immoral things have to be kept at a distance. The result is holy things and holy people are set apart.
