What is holiness? (Ex mea sententia )
Mankind is sometimes called his or her holiness; I do question mankind called holy.
Popes of the catholic faith are called holiness. Many predecessors of today's pope have been quite debauched. Perhaps many popes have been good men, but surly not holy.
The Dalai Lama is called his holiness, he might be a good man but not holy.
Mother Teresa is sometimes called holy. She might have been a good woman but also not holy.
Mankind can not be holy, our nature does not allow it.
Holiness has been a term adopted by religions or monarchs to be special, to be above normal mankind.
To install respect and worship towards certain people or gods.
Holiness is pure like a flower.
Mankind is not pure.
Mankind is hypocritical, slaughters, steals, lies, is envious, traits which are in all mankind.
A tiny child, a baby animal, a tree, a plant, even a weed can be holy; but not adult people.
If you want to worship, bent your knees
in front of a flowering meadow.
