I am hearing a lot of discussion on the "supreme attribute" of God. On one side I am hearing it is His love. On the other side, I am hearing that the "supreme attribute" of God is the thrice-repeated "holy".
Frankly, I believe that is dangerous ground, moving into the realm that His self-revealed Scriptures do not take us. Anytime we begin "dissecting God" He ceases to be God.
He is revealed in His Word as holy, and He is revealed in His word as love. Without holiness, He would not be real love. Without love, He would not be holy. I wonder in fact if they are not two sides of the same coin --- for He simply is Who He is, and we cannot make Him other than what He is. Worship Him as He has revealed Himself in His Word and in the Word - Jesus.
He is love and He is holy.
