"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 He would be double-damned -brooks

[b]He would be double-damned[/b]

(Thomas Brooks, "Apples of Gold" 1660)

"Then I beg you--send Lazarus to my father's house,
for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that
they will not also come to this place of torment."
Luke 16:27-28

Dives knew that if his brethren were damned--that
he would be double-damned, because he had
largely contributed to the bringing of them to hell
by his wicked example. Therefore he desires that
they might be kept out of hell--not out of any love
or goodwill to them--but because their coming
there would have made his hell more hot, his
torments more insufferable.

The lowest, the darkest, the hottest place in hell,
will be for those who have drawn others there by
their example. "It would be better for him to be
thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around
his neck--than for him to cause one of these little
ones to sin." Luke 17:2

The tragedy of the rich man was that he had to be in hell itself in order to know the torment.

So many mockers and scoffers will suffer the same torment because of unbelief.

Let us go forth to be the examples of light and salt to this dark world that the Lord Jesus Christ would have us to be, and pluck multitudes from hell.

Let's not ignore the subject of hell. God doesn't why should we?

God bless.
