This is part 4 in the series and is defining more aspects in the Holiness of God. This will lead into the walk we have before God to live Holy as God is Holy. It is not legalism; rather it is a heart issue. This series is to capture the lost art of walking in holiness.
On August 19, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that it will accept input from stakeholders to determine a possible rulemaking for entry-level truck driver training. After years of failing to implement a final rule which would establish such criteria, the FMCSA is considering using a negotiated rulemaking, known as RegNeg.
Under RegNeg, outside agency representatives would consult among each other in order to develop the proposed rule, taking the responsibility away from the FMCSA. In Canada, a task force is working toward establishing criteria for entry-level drivers, as well as hoping to have the Canadian government classify truck driving as a "skilled" profession.
Furthermore, the Canadian Trucking Alliance has admitted that the primary causes for a driver shortage are driver wages, quality of life, qualifications and demographics.
Join us as we look at the very different approach by the U.S. and Canada as it relates to driver training and recognizing the importance of the professional driver. Just one topic for our "Open Forum."

This is the beginning of the teaching on Walking Holy as God is Holy. One must understand the Holiness of God in order to understand that God desires us to live Holy as He is Holy. Therefore, we will explore the depths of God's Holiness in this session. This may become a two or three part episode in order to cover it all before moving on to the next stage.
In the Old and New Testaments, we see the words quoted "BE YE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY". This tells me that no matter the dispensation, GOD is HOLY and HE requires us to be HOLY.
This evening we will discuss the term Be Ye Holy and what it really means. Can one be holy and live a life of sin? Does holiness require anything more than confessing Yahshua as "personal Lord and Savior? Does being a part of a particular denomination make one holy?
We will explore these and other questions this evening as we learn what it means to "BE YE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY"
