Lazarus and the Rich Man

In (Luke 16;19-31), Jesus shares the story of Lazarus and the Rich Man. Lazarus was a poor man who died and went to paradise (heaven).

This video is a must watch for those of us who take life lightly, without a care about where we are going to spend eternity. As the story shows, there is an unbridgeable chasm between heaven and hell which cannot be crossed. Watch intently, this message about life and death. Choose Life! Choose Christ while HE may still be found. feel free to share this video with all those whom you care for.  (feel free to add your comments at the end of the video in this blog itself).
