      It would be improper for me to speak for the Pentecostals, but I am a member of the Assembly of God church.  We do have a different view of holiness or sanctification.  I would say that the Holiness Churches are more on target with their theology than we are, however, when push comes to shove, it appears to me that the results are about the same.  I'm not sure that the holiness churches are doing any better at living holy lives than we are.  The common feature with our views seems to be that we both hold to a need to surrender our selfs to the Lordship of Christ and the filling of the Holy Ghost.  The Spirit has a way of showing us our carnality and helping us to do deal with it. 
      I'm amazed at how faithful the Spirit is to bring us into a holy relationship with our Lord.

      The Church of the Nazarene and the Weslyan chruch still consider themselves holiness of the Holiness tradition. What this actually "is" has been understood differntly over the past centruy. Holiness is considerd to be the working of the Holy Spirit in heart and life, manifest through lifestyle of godliness and love for God and neighbor. The pentecostal version with the evidences of the spirit in tongues and whatnot has been discourages in the above mentioned denomonations.

      I am just wondering if the holiness tradition is still practicing in our churches nowadays.
