Whose Rules?

By The Editors / November / December 2007
December 5th, 2007
The Bible was not written just to lay down “rules” or “edicts” to follow, but to reveal to mankind an infinitely loving and compassionate God who desperately wants to help us. And, boy, do we need his help (“Living the Good Life ,” Arts & Culture, September/October). But to just follow the rules, without entering into a loving relationship with the one who gave them to us, is empty and futile. Of course, this is exactly what Jesus kept trying to tell the Pharisees. But at least the Pharisees were serious. A.J. Jacob’s attempt to be entertaining and humorous about things that billions of the faithful have lived by, and died for, over the years is just sad.
