ROME—The Apostle Paul was imprisoned in Rome near the time of his death, after a long life suffering in various prison conditions throughout his ministry. Christians have often wondered how Paul the Apostle kept the faith during those dark years.
Now, a new discovery may have the answer: archaeologists have found a "Live, Laugh, Love" sign that the Apostle Paul hung in his prison cell.
"It seems that looking at the Live, Laugh, Love sign really encouraged Paul during this dark time," one Bible scholar said. "As the end of his life approached, he was able to meditate on the beautiful words on the sign. We know that this theologically fluffy slogan really summarized Paul's life. He just wanted to live and let live, laugh, and love people. And also get brutally executed for teaching that Jesus was the only way to heaven, of course. But mostly to live, laugh, and love."
At publishing time, sources had further confirmed that the Apostle Paul had purchased the distressed-wood decoration during a 50% off sale at Hobby Lobby.
