The Wickedness of Gechazi
Shalom, Rabbi. I have a question for you. Rabbis said that Gehazi was too wicked to go to Olam Haba. But all of his sins were that he lied to Elisha. We all sometimes lie to others. No one is perfectly honest. Gehazi also lied to Elisha the prophet, but was it so evil? If one has no portion in Olam Haba merely because he or she lies, no one can have eternal life. Why does Gehazi have no portion in Olam Haba? What makes his sin so evil?
