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)
  • Now attending 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.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our about and specifically How we are different than other sites. Please understand - we are looking for academic answers. The book you are porbably talking about is either from Randy Alcorn or is the book 90 minutes in Heaven. The verses you are thinking about are probably Luke 16:17-32 (Lazarus and the Rich Man). But those are precisely the facts that would have made this a good answer. "My personal belief" is what we try to avoid here!

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our about and specifically How we are different than other sites. This is a good and interesting answer, although it would helpful to make explicit the fact that both cities lay claim, and that Benedict, being from Germany, might or might not fit the bill...
