The story of Lazarus and rich man(dives)

30 October 2012, 11:21

The Word of God as depicted in the Bible or Quran is full of teachings and guidelines that help us through in this journey for righteousness and goodwill. It also helps us to see the Will of God, when The Trinity decided to create and put man on planet earth, to dwell in the Garden of Eden, with all the understanding and knowledge of the Creator. The book of Genesis chapter one (1) gives us the indication of the intent when the universe was created by God. God’s intent for mankind is also reflected in the New Testament, the life of one man Jesus Christ, who characterized the first man to be created Adam, the perfect example of what God’s image of a human being.

A Flat yield curve is a perfect example of the existence of God, it has no beginning and no end, for man to be in constant ignorance of denying the existence of God is pure blasphemy. God gave us so much proof of his existence that even science for once does draw some parallelism with the theological facts, like the lost shroud of Turin that dates back 2000 years ago.

For man  to be secure in self preservation it is better to believe rather than be ignorant of the fact, that God is the creator and has all the good purpose that he made man in his own image,  whether you suffer the atrocities and the scourges of this world, God’s goodwill and righteousness will soon be revealed. The story of Dives and Lazarus in the book of Luke (16:19-31) is a perfect parable that tells us of the relationship in life and in death, a place where there is never going back, life is forever moving forward, yesterday is gone only tomorrow is sure to come for all eternity. It is better to be on the good side of the book, than to continue to utter blasphemous words.
