in scriptures of the rich man and Lazarus leaves us with some questions as
well as some certainties. One of the questions would be what does a
resurrected body look like. With regards to the certainties we
believe they are true today as they have been throughout all ages.
With regards to the question of the resurrected bodies we know they are
different then our present bodies which decay away. Resurrected
bodies continue forever.
die we go to one of two places. Different words can be used to
describe the two places. One such pair would be bliss vs.
torment. We know from our account in scripture that choice is
fixed, that there is a great divide or chasm between them and one can
not cross over from one side to the other. You can't go back and
interesting characteristic (certainty) we learn is the nature man's
mind. The account tells of the request of someone from the dead
going back to change the mind of the living. The response is
that if Moses and the prophets were not sufficient to set ones mind
aright, someone coming back from the dead would not make any
difference. In other words, what we have today with the
scriptures and the nature of created man is all that is necessary for
one to realize their sinful nature and their need of a savior.
Jesus is the one and only savior
