TITLE: THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS

Studying the difference between the Biblical leprosy and today, for one thing the name has changed and they are not considered “unclean”. I have spoken to the Administrator of the Home in Louisiana and he sent me books and pictures. Another friend in Jerusalem sent me newspaper articles and photos and connected me with a doctor that worked there and his wife (both in 70s) and got me an interview them. I surely was informed by interviewing these four people.

JESUS ate with a leper, Judas Iscariot’s father, at his home, when it was unlawful then to be near them. JESUS had power over the leprosy. HE also was teaching HIS disciples to have the same power over all diseases.

The rich man also learned that he could not take all his wealth with him to the Promised Land. Nevertheless, Lazarus was healed from his disease upon his arrival of the Holy Land, and ate at the MASTER’S table. Since JESUS cooked fish and bread on the shore and invited the disciples to “Come and Dine” I think there was fish and bread the table as well as manna and water or wine.

We have been instilled with the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus and had rather to be healed as Lazarus and not go to torment like this rich man. Don’t you agree with this?

As it has been said by Jesus "It is much easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

You were on topic and and your entry held meaning in the true biblical sense.

Thank you . God Bless~

On target with the subject and an interesting article.

I really feel you need to work on your word choice to make sentences flow better. An example is the first sentence 'Studying the difference...' Would read better if you said 'I have been studying...'

Only my thoughts; please feel free to ignore them.

I enjoyed your point and think it was well made.

Yes, I do agree:) This article is on topic and makes good points.

The sentence structure is a little awkward but this is easily corrected with practice. All caps are not necessary.

Good job!

Welcome to the writing challenge! I agree that sentence structure may need a little polish.

You were on topic. Good luck!

This is an interesting essay and I can tell you put a lot of passion into it.

Make sure you get a good proofreader who can help you polish your work before you submit. For example, the most powerful sentence in a piece is the first one. That's your chance to draw the reader in, however yours is an incomplete sentence.

You make some great points, I wished you had expanded on some of them because I was eager to read more. How wonderful and blessed we are that Jesus does reach out to the unclean for we all are unclean but once we ask him into our hearts our sins are washed away.
