Hey Christians! Check This Out!

I seen it in the Bible.

16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Now, it doesn’t say that the rich man was cruel to Lazarus. In fact, it was probably really inconvenient to have this sore-covered beggar hanging out in front of his house. But the rich man, according to his sense of what was expected, allowed Lazarus to scrape up a few crumbs. He probably expected to be rewarded by God for his tolerance. What a surprise!

I’m not a Christian, but if I was I’d worry. The book of Luke says that the rich man has to give some real help to the poor sick guy. Or he’ll go to the hot place.

  1. I really don`t understand your point.

    Why would you use a document you dont believe, yourself to justify anything.

    Probably best you dont quote the bible, if you dont believe, you can never understand.

  2. What do you mean by ‘believe’?
    Who’s allowed to quote the Bible? Who’s not allowed?
    If I were a Christian, what meaning would I see in this scripture?

  3. By believe, I mean that God is the father. The story is meaningless if you don`t believe, ie have faith.
    You can quote anything you want, but I think its foolish for someone like you to use the Bible to make your point.
    The story is simple. No need to explain. I am still trying to understand what it is “you” are saying…It seems to me you are saying Christians are not charitible?…Why have you decided its ok to single out Christians?..Are there any other groups that are safe for you to critisize?

  4. maybe this will help you. understand /no disrespect meant,(to my muslim and crackhead friends) just trying to prove a point

    I seen it in the Koran.
    16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 16:20 And there was a certain crackhead named Crack addict, which was laid at his alley, full of sores, 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the drugs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
    16:22 And it came to pass, that the crackhead fell ill, and was placed in the infirmary, by the police, and called to Ninjanurse court: the rich man also fell ill, and was incarcerated; 16:23 And in jail he lift up his eyes, being in chains, and seeth Ninjanurse afar off, and Crack addict in her court.
    16:24 And he cried and said, Govenor Ninjanurse, have mercy on me, and send Crack addict, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
    16:25 But Ninjanurse said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Crack addict evil things: but now he is in rehab, and you are jailed and taxed.
    Now, it doesn’t say that the rich man was cruel to Crack addict. In fact, it was probably really inconvenient to have this sore-covered crackhead hanging out in front of his house. But the rich man, according to his sense of what was expected, allowed Crack addict to scrape up a few drugs. He probably expected to be rewarded by The IRS for his tolerance. What a surprise!
    I’m not a Muslim, but if I was I’d worry. The book of Tax code says that the rich man has to give some real help to the poor sick guy. Or he’ll go to the jail.

  5. Well, now I know what version of the Bible you guys are preaching from. This explains a lot.

  6. Why have you decided its ok to single out Christians?..Are there any other groups that are safe for you to critisize?

    Are you uncomfortable answering these?..
