Sometimes we have some really unhealthy ideas about God's holiness and how it separates us from him. As part of our series in Romans we came across Romans 3.23 which talks about how all have fallen short of the glory of God. Now that's a sobering verse but taken in context we looked at how this is part of Paul's polemic against thinking that one group (jews or gentiles) are better than the other. We are all in the same predicament and all offered rescue in Jesus. So what about some of the other verses that seem to talk about our separation from the divine?
