  1. We see no such thing. 1. Our Lord's account in Luke 16:19-31 is NOT a parable. 2. In our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31, He never said anything about a "temporary abode of the souls of the dead." That is your addition to the account. 3. In our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31, He never once used the name "Paradise" for anything in the account. That is also your addition to the account. 4. It is uncertain that in our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31 He employed the phrase "Abraham's bosom" as the official name for a "place." It is quite possible that in our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31 He was simply using the phrase "Abraham's bosom" actually to refer unto Abraham's own bosom/chest, in/upon which Lazarus was laying. (It may be noticed that when describing the place wherein Abraham and Lazarus were located, our Lord never indicated that Abraham was in a place that was named Abraham's bosom. In fact, the descriptive reads as follows -- "And seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his [Abraham's] bosom [chest]." 5. In our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31, He employed the term "hell" for the place wherein the rich man was after his death; but never employed the term "hell" for the place wherein Abraham and Lazarus were. In fact, in our Lord's account of Luke 16:19-31, He did NOT employ the term "torments" as the name for a place, but as a descriptive of the place that He called "hell." ("And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments . . . .) 5. It is also quite possible that both Abraham and Lazarus (who was laying in/upon Abraham's bosom) were in heaven, with a "great gulf" fixed between heaven and hell (the place of torment); for Revelation 14:10 does indeed indicate that the torments of those in hell can be observed by the inhabitants of heaven. ("And he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone IN THE PRESENCE of the holy angels, and IN THE PRESENCE of the Lamb.") (Note: Making claims for a passage of Scripture that are not actually found in that passage of Scripture is NOT "rightly dividing the word of truth.") On the other hand, it is completely correct that "Jesus plainly said [in Luke 23:43] He and the repentant thief would be in PARADISE that day." Furthermore, 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 indicates that "the third Heaven" and "Paradise" are equivalent. (Again I note: Throughout this thread discussion I am finding that the same arguments and ideas are being presented over and over again. Even though I have handled various of these arguments and ideas through actual grammatical and Biblical exegesis, the same arguments and ideas are repeated without anyone actually responding to the actual exegesis that I have presented. Repetition of falsehood does not turn that falsehood into truth.)

    So sorry to hear this. We're like you and no threat to facebook, but I am waiting of the day they decide to shut us down.

  3. We see from Jesus' parable of the rich man & the beggar Lazarus that the temporary abode of the souls of the dead is divided into areas called 'Abraham's bosom' or 'paradise', & an area called 'torments'. Jesus plainly said He & the repentant thief would be in PARADISE that day.

  4. Biden has already confessed to voter fraud on video. He confessed on behalf of the entire democrat party days ago on October 24th. He also confessed for Obama who won both of his elections via egregious voter fraud previously. Seems very clear with this confession that every democrat won seat in government EVERYWHERE has been obtained at least partially through voter fraud. What more does Trump need to end this farce and take back this country from communist China. Watch his video confession below: Biden's Confession
