  When Goodness is Not Enough
Dives was by all moral and cultural standards a good man. There is nothing to indicate that he accumulated his wealth by hook or crook; or indulged in drug traffic, or ran the numbers, or pimped women, or was involved in corporate greed or white collar suite crime.
Dives goodness was characterized by power, privilege, pride, and arrogance, which isolated him from the least, the less, the lowest, the last, and the left out.
Dives was a Good man, but his goodness represented a form of prejudice that was manifested in an abominable sinful act of omission.

 The SpiderDen - Dives...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Please don't misunderstand me. Dives is not bad because he is rich, and Lazarus is not righteous because he is poor and suffering.
Dives is satisfied with the world's comforts in the here and now without considering the Kingdom to come, and Lazarus--although in misery--can look beyond sufferings in this present world because of his faith in God.
Lazarus was insignificant to the rich man. He felt nothing in regards to Lazarus' plight; therefore, Dives is judged harshly in the next life because of what he didn't do for Lazarus and not what he did to him.

When it came their time to die, there's a nice touch in the story that tells us that Dives was buried (and you can imagine what a lot of pomp and ceremony there was to that) but not that Lazarus was buried.
Dives and Lazarus have changed places in the next world, not because it's time poor Lazarus got a fair go, and Dives got cut down to size, but because it indicates with dramatic effect what had already become true in this world.
