Joel Stein's column "Yes, you too are probably going to hell" (Oct. 27, Page B-5) got my attention. The author unwittingly confirms some core teachings of the Bible. Stein couldn't live biblically even for one meal, let alone a year or a whole life, thus confirming Romans 3:23 when it says "For all have sinned." The headline confirms the biblical assertion reported in Romans 6:23 that the "wages of sin is death" -- that is, the result of this inability is separation from God. So far, he is right on target. Unfortunately, he seems unaware of the core message of the Bible, which is that all along, God had a way of erasing this separation. A.J. Jacobs made his attempt at "living biblically," but truly living biblically is not trying to obey all its instructions, but to recognize we can't and to believe the death of Jesus is God's way of restoring our relationship with him.
