We are jumping back into the Parables by taking a look at the rich man and Lazarus. So take a big breath before we…go to Hell. Because, that is where this story is taking us. Like a warning label on a child’s toy, the Parables are a warning to us from Jesus. In this case, he is boldly telling us who and who will not enter His Kingdom.
We may be good, honest, moral people who give to the church and charity. But we’re learning that Jesus isn’t impressed by this religion. In Luke 16:15, He says, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sign of God.”
This is the backdrop for today’s Parable.
