“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue because I am in agony in this fire” (Luke 16:22-24) (NIV).
To understand human life and the purpose of human existence, it is always advisable to look from the perspective of the origins. Adam is clearly the Father of physical humanity. His life was not different from the lives of ordinary people living today. Although, during his time, corruption may not have portrayed the current levels. Nevertheless, the entire Bible is premised on Abraham being the Father of many nations (Genesis 22:16-18) (Galatians 3:29).
