Jesus declared that the rich man died and found himself in a place of torment.  Do we believe in everlasting torment?  Jesus did.


Paul’s extended greeting to Titus 1:1

Paul describes himself and the work Christ commissioned him to do. He is a servant and moreover an apostle and he works to promote the faith, knowledge and godliness of the Christians on Crete. He had left Titus, his partner and co-worker, on Crete to continue and complete this work.


They have the Law and the Prophets (16:19-31)
