Wealth and the Gospel

Here’s what I think I know:

We cannot affirmatively say that any individual is in hell, save one. (Pun acknowledged.)

Jesus told a *story* in the Bible that is often mistaken for a parable. Two points on that: 1) the Bible-writers never call it a parable, and 2) parables don’t contain names, especially not names of known persons.

The story I’m talking about is of the “rich man” and Lazarus.

We only definitively know of one man in hell, and he was identified by Jesus as “the rich man.”  Telling, I think.
