“Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father (Abraham), that thou wouldest send him (Lazarus) to my father’s house: for I have five brethern; that he may testify unto them lest they also come into this place of torment.” It is seldom that we hear serious warnings about the torments of Hell. The subject is morbid for those that are lost but we believers should respond in two ways. First, we should praise God for our salvation. Second, we must warn those that are on the broad path to destruction. Unless they hear the Gospel and repent, they will suffer eternal torment like the rich man. The lackadaisical attitude among other Christians can be no excuse. We must go with urgency and compassion, proclaiming Christ, so that many may be snatched from the flames.
