The dogs also came and licked his sores. Then the beggar gradually succumbed to injuries. The angels came down to him and carried him to Abraham’s side. After some time, the rich man also died and was buried. 

When Hades was tormenting him, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side. He begged Abraham to send Lazarus to him so that he could dip the tip of his finger in water and cool the rich man’s tongue as he was in great pain in this fire. But Abraham objected to it and said to him that in his entire life, he had only received good things, but Lazarus was always on the receiving end of bad things.

No one can even come from him to them.

Timothy 5:3-16 – The name of no woman should be written down on the list of widows unless she is above sixty years of age, has been completely committed to her partner, and has earned a lot of respect because of her moral deeds and ethics, like nurturing and taking care of her children, displaying warmth and generosity, cleansing the feet of the people of the almighty Heavenly Father, offering help to the people who are suffering and surrendering herself to the service of people. 

But the widows who are younger in age should not be taken into consideration for this list. This is because of the fact that when their sexual thirst prevails over their devotion towards the Son of God, Jesus Christ, they dream of engaging themselves in marriage again. Hence they subject themselves to punishment for they think they have failed to fulfill their first vow.

And not only do they turn sluggish, but they also become like scandalmongers who speak utter rubbish about things that make no sense and about things they should not be gossiping about.

It is utterly disrespectful for a woman to say something in the church.

John 1:1- At the start, there was the Word. The Word belonged to the Lord. The Word was the Lord himself. 

Timothy 2:11-15 – A female should enhance her knowledge only in silence and complete acquiescence.

And Adam was not the one who was betrayed; it was Eve, the woman who was misguided and then committed a sin. But the nature of women can be redeemed only if they bear children in their womb – if they stick to their trust in the almighty Heavenly Father, affection, and sanctity with decorum.  

Timothy 5:3-16 – Offer an adequate amount of acknowledgment to all the widows who are helpless and truly in requirement of security. But if anyone among them has grandchildren and children, before doing anything else, they should educate themselves about the ways in which they could carry out the duties listed in their religion and begin with they could take care of their own family members and therefore they are paying back to their guardians and grandparents, because the almighty Heavenly Father finds this very satisfactory.
