Extreme Separation or Fantastic Union

        Jesus said he had come not to establish peace on the earth, but rather division. From the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus, we learn that a great chasm exists between the place of comfort and that of torment, which prevents anyone from crossing from either side to the other. This is extreme separation. On the contrary, there is the greatest unity on the side of God where barriers do not exist among those who belong to the same Lord – all in perfect union with God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Again, we are confronted with making a choice now.
