In Jesus’ conversation about the rich man and Lazarus, the poor man, he added, “But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receievedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. (Luke 16:25-26)
The rich man was responsible for Lazarus, his neighbor, and took no notice to help him. In order for his five brothers to be saved, he requested that Lazarus go to his father’s house, warn them about the hereafter, and tell them to repent. Abraham said to the rich man, “If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” (Luke 16:16:31)
Even still today, men do not hear what Jesus said. “Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.” (Luke 16:18) God loves his entire family and not just the part! Save the first family!
