1Corinthians 3:17 ".....the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are." 

John 15:3 "Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you."

Romans 3:25,26 "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God...To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness; that he might be just and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus." 
    Notice it says that by believing in Jesus.(what He did), that His.(Jesus).righteousness is placed upon that which kept us from.(a relationship with).God in the past. In other words, through belief and belief alone.(as Jesus' sacrifice was enough), we are reconciled to God.
    God loves us so very much that any works of righteousness we may conjure up cannot be compared to the gift of salvation by belief and belief alone.
    Being 'saved,' is being made a member of the God family; brought into it by belief. To be saved means to be transformed -John 17:15-17.
    Christ saves now. If the evil in the world bothers you, you can be saved from it by accepting Christ into your heart; a new creation will begin right now in your heart. You'll get through life with this hope in you. 

1Peter 1:15,16 "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation.(old english for 'conduct'); Because it is written, Be you holy; for I am holy."

Acts 15:9 "And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith." 
    If one wants to be holy, he must acknowledge the truth about his present state of being in Christ; that he is righteous and perfect and holy.
    You're pure if you believe that in Christ you are pure! THAT'S what brings the power of the Holy Spirit into you and changes you into His perfectness; but now, it's a thing affecting the heart and not of any decisions to conform to a mode of behavior based upon the many legalistic religions' do's and don'ts. Now it's from the depth of a changed, a renewed heart

Titus 1:15 "Unto the pure.(saturated with Christ).all things are pure. But unto them that are defiled.(original Greek is 'to dye with another colour').and unbelieving is nothing pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.".Romans 14:23

God doesn't occupy anywhere that He considers out of order or impure in any way! -1Peter 3:4 "But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price."
    More closer to the original Greek: "But rather, the hidden person.(motivations from Christ in one's heart).of an incorruptible meek.(mildness of disposition, gentleness of spirit).and peaceable attitude of heart which is occupied in that place by God Eternal."
    And He does occupy you! That's how perfect is the gift Christ made possible for those who accept Him -Romans 5:17

Our hearts are purified by faith.(Acts 15:9).in taking action to show compassion and fervent appreciation of others -1Peter 1:22.
    1st Peter is also saying here that by obeying the truth we purify ourselves. Obeying what truth? -1John 2:4 "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar and the truth is not in him."....continue?
