Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

Yeah, if you could even describe the source from which you get this answer, it would make it much better.

So, what you are saying is that the story of Lazarus is a parable because only in parable could it work this way. That's rather circular. There's actually much debate about whether Lazarus & Dives is a parable or a revelation - I wouldn't be so sure in either direction.

El Shaddai is typically considered a name, and not just a title.

It is perfectly legitimate to link back to another commentator on the site, especially if it cites a claim.

When we've been there, ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun. We've no less days to sing God's praise, than when we first begun...
