12:14 Follow peace with all men - This second branch of the exhortation concerns our neighbours; the third, God. And holiness - The not following after all holiness, is the direct way to fall into sin of every kind.
Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all [men]. Live peaceful lives. And holiness. Pure and sinless lives. Without which. Without a holy life no one shall be in fellowship with God. No man shall see the Lord. Realize his presence with us. See Mt 5:8

As followers of Christ, we must pursue peace among the brethren. We must make sure that we dont have anything negative against our neighbours. If we fail to love our neighbours as ourselves and claim to love God, it amounts to zero love. God said be ye holy, for I am holy. Holiness is the nature and attribute of God. Without holiness, we cannot see God.

I think this is exactly what the Lord want the Chritians to be. as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy

I think many Pastors have been decieved into believing and teaching that someone can love God, be filled with His Spirit, and then later turn away and still walk into heaven, disregarding all the warnings, especially the one here that says without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. We are not talking works, we are talking denying your self. Is not self denial a proff of true salvation?

(Hebrews 12:14) God expecte us to love our neighbours, contribute to one another's success, peace and joy. Show our neighbours the love of God and not that of men. The love of God is unconditional.
