Can Someone Explain The Message That Jesus Wants To Pass In Luke 22 :36 / Another Luke 16 Controversy : Was Lazarus Even Buried? / The Event Between Satan And Christ: What Readers Do Not Understand In Luke 4:8 (2) (3) (4)
|Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by annyplenty(m): 11:19am On Apr 30|
Let us rub minds together.
The scripture did not explicity say why the rich man in Luke 16:19-31 go to hell.
Can you infer from the scripture why he ended in hell.

Why did he go to hell
|Re: Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by Kobojunkie: 6:24pm On Apr 30|
annyplenty:1. First, the story is a parable and not meant to be literally interpreted. Second, the answer to why the rich man character in the story would end up in the Old Law Hell is found in Ezekiel 18 vs 1 - 32 & Ezekiel 33 vs 10 - 20. Third, in consonance with scripture, Hell for those of Old condemned to die is perishing in the grave --- they cease to exist when they die - Deuteronomy 30 vs 15 - 20 & Genesis 3 vs 19 - 22.
2. What evidence do you have that proves to you that you are in fact born-again in keeping with the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ? Do you have the evidence that Jesus Christ proclaimed all who are born-again will have in John 3 vs 1 - 21, or are you of the mind that the process is whole of mental assent?

annyplenty:Let's not stress ourselves. There is no baby here.
Those niggas who put that parable in the Bible only did that because they want every rich man to give their hard earned money to the church for the fear of not being condemned into hell for having riches.

annyplenty:Well, apparently he was a rich man who had nothing to do with God and His Word hence when he suffered torments, he knew to request that Lazarus be sent to preach to his kith and kin but father Abraham referred to the law and prophets which the rich man failed to heed to while alive.

He did not have mercy on poor Lazarus. Rather, he humiliated him in his poverty stricken condition.

You think Jesus just imagined a place of torment that does not exist?
Do you make parables with events that are not real? If yes, mention any other parable with events that can't happen in practice.
Do you mention actual names in parables? If yes, give me another parable where specific names were mentioned.
Is the idea of hell as a place of torment supported by any other passage in the scripture? The answer is yes and there are so many scriptures that backs the fact that lost souls end up in a place of torment.

Ken4Christ:1. A parable is a story that is told in such as why as to misdirect the uninformed --- using details that come close to reality--- from figuring the message that is clearly presented in the story. The parables are part reason why Jesus Christ said the secrets of the Kingdom are hidden from those who lack understanding and only revealed to those who infact use the understanding they already have as instructed by Jesus Christ- Matthew 13 vs 10 - 12 & Mark 4 vs 22 - 28 & Matthew 25 vs 29

annyplenty:You no see how much David give to God when them wan build him house.
David said "I have given to God with all my might" wetin that one mean? E mean say na everything wey him get him give him God.
And as for Abraham, Abraham dey pay him tithes. Paid paid paid until he left nothing for Isaac
|Re: Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by Ken4Christ: 8:58am On May 01|
You did not answer my question.
If hell as a place of torment is not real, why would Jesus use it in parable?
How could him imagine such a thing if it's not real? Did Jesus lose his mind?
Are there not many other references that points to the same thing?

Ken4Christ:1. There is no Hell-- a place of torment --- for those of the Old Law of Moses which the parable clearly explains as the contextual Law for that parable - Deuteronomy 30 vs 15 - 20.
|Re: Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by Ken4Christ: 11:40pm On May 01|
Must you defend a lie at all cost even when there are overwhelming evidences that affirms you are lying?
1. The scripture talks about the pains of hell. Are there pains in the grave.
2. The scripture talks about the sorrows of hell. Is there sorrow in the grave.
3. Each time Jesus mentioned people going into hell, he uses the phrase 'cast into hell'. Do you cast or throw people into grave.
4. Jesus said that there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Do dead bodies weep and gnash their teeth in the grave?
5. Jesus used the term, cast into furnace of fire. Does the grave burn with fire.
I could go on and on.
Must you put your soul in danger of that terrible place because you want to defend the lies of Rutherford and Russell?

Ken4Christ:1. Please engage your senses abeg! Moses, the one who in fact gave to Israel the Old Law,never indicated the existence of a place of torment after death. God never suggested the existence of any such throughout the 40 years He led the Israelites through the Israelites feeding them the details of the Law.
|Re: Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by Ken4Christ: 8:23am On May 02|
But Jesus did and Jesus is the Truth . So, why not believe what the Truth has said?

Ken4Christ:1. Again, the context of the parable which was told by Jesus Christ was the Old Law of Moses and there is no Hell- place of torment - associated with the Old Law. That is of importance when considering how to process the details contained in the story. As it is a parable and not a story based on facts, the importance thing is to find the message hidden in plane sight and that is found in the Abraham characters response to the Rich man's question --- no one will be sent back from the dead to work the living.
|Re: Why Did The Rich Man In Luke 16 Go To Hell? by annyplenty(m): 9:51am On May 05|
-1. He did not listen to the Preachers of his time who were warning him about hell. And as such *he failed to repent*
Let us looked at the conversation below, between Abraham and him
Luke 16:27-30 KJV
Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
 *For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment*
..  Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And *he said, Nay, father Abraham: but *if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.*
From the above scripture, it seemed the rich man and his brothers were the type that always disdain the word of God, saying *has anyone gone to hell and come back before?*
That might be the reason the rich man suggested to Abraham that his brothers would not believe unless a dead person go to warn them about hell.

Where else will a direction-less man go other than nowhere.
He never laboured for Heaven.
The Bible never stated he walked Godly,
He was use as example of worldliness
He went to Hell
It's a question for be and you to decide WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY?

jehova witness I sight u
the bible says.... there was a certain rich man.... "there was " this shows that it actually happened.
and this shows that there is life after death.
Revelation 20:14 also talk about a time where some certain individual will be cast into an everlasting fire
Isaiah 33:14 also talk about an everlasting fire where sinners will be cast into.
Revelation 21:8 we read: "[A]s for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, the murderers, the fornicators, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all liars, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death." this means that being cast into hell is referred to as death in response to Ezekiel 18 vs 1 - 32 u pointed out
Read King James version not a water down translation

The rich man choose to lay up his own treasures here on earth with vanity and allurement of life. Hence ended up condemned from being with God in eternity.

He was not saved. He did not have JESUS Christ. He was not born again.
No matter who you are, no matter what you have or what you don't have, If you do not Have a genuine relationship with JESUS CHRIST, you are on your way to Hell fire.
JESUS CHRIST is the ONLY way to Heaven.

You should have asked Why didn't JESUS Say "Man can not Serve Our CREATOR The I AM THAT I AM and Satan at the same time"? JESUS Never said that because HE knows that when it comes to Worship, Money (Mammon) much easily Conquers Man to worship it than Satan could ever do. For JESUS to Warn of the Likehood of Man to Worship Money instead of our CREATOR, you can imagine how many Rich People lost their Eternal Soul by placing Mammon on the Throne of their Hearts that should Naturally have I AM THAT I AM alone as the Supreme KING Seated there.
It is very sad to see that most of Generations and Generations of Humanity have chosen to remain foolish in their refusal to Learn from foolishness and mistake of the Past Generations. Satan's greatest Deception of Humanbeings is to get many to Prioritize money over Pleasing their CREATOR. Ask yourself, where are the Millionaires and Billionaires of Bible Era? Where are the Trillionaires of past Generations?! Did they carry their money along when they returned to meet the CREATOR of Humanity? Is even the Purpose of Humanity on Earth to amass wealth, money and prosperity?! NO!
Check YouTube for videos: Sober repentant Scientists are already exposing the Evidences that Noah's Flood truly happen, that the Earth is Flat, that NASA Never landed on Moon, Ron Wyatt dug up corroded Chariot's Wheels that proved that Pharaoh and his Army drowned in Red Sea as written in Scripture, etc. Which all means that living to Please the CREATOR of Humanity is the Wisest thing for any Humanbeing to do, because this World and all the so called riches shall soon be Erased. Our CREATOR has Vowed that HE would gather and pull out all those that use this short Life on Earth to please HIM, destroy this current World and then Create a New Eternal World to be owned and Enjoy by all we HIS Children forever with JESUS His Son as the only Ruler of the whole Earth eternally.
Original Purpose of Humanity on Earth is not to chase money or amass wealth. It is to use this current Short Temporary Life to prove that no amount of Problems, Troubles, Temptations, and Trials from Satan would ever make us to turn our back on our CREATOR. Only those that refused to allow their Souls to be conquered by Mammon(Money), Satan and the Trials of this Temporary World shall our CREATOR Reward with Immortality. Accept JESUS His Son as your Eternal LORD and SAVIOUR today and consistently Pray that HIS Ever Pure SPIRIT should take Permanent Ownership of your Heart and the Source of your Thoughts. See you in Eternal Kingdom of our CREATOR in JESUS' Pure Name! HalleluAHAYAH ASHAR AHAYAH!!!!!!!
