    The bible says be holy as i am holy. Holiness means having god's heart. Loving what he loves and hating what he hates. Obviously if you love him you will do his will. The basis of holiness is love

    The word holiness means being pure, chase, free of any form of sin/iniquity. This does not mean that we can not fall into sin but being able to recognize it and repent of it and maintaining a right standing with god. Seeking to please god and staying away from anything that the eye of god cannot behold.
