Pass Judgement Into Immortality

At John 11:35 we read that Jesus
wept because of the death of his
friend Lazarus. Why did he not
say, "rejoice Lazarus has gone to
heaven"? Why did he not say "do
you not know that all humans
have an immortal soul that cannot
die and Lazarus has gone on to a
better place"? Why did Jesus talk
about a resurrection? Does the
word mean to come back to life
after being dead? What does it
mean to be "dead"? If you can
accept the bible's answer, see
Ezekiel 18:4, "the soul that
sinneth, it shall die." and
Ecclesiastes 9:10, "
there is no
work, nor device, nor knowledge,
nor wisdom, in the grave
(sheol),
whither thou goest." Is it totally
beyond the realm of possibility
that we have a Creator who has
enough intelligence and ability
to recall who a person was and
reconstruct that person, even
quite some time after they have
ceased to be alive? People have
been making up answers to
questions related to this subject
for many years. Why would some
take an answer from a mere
human without at least checking
to see if their answer agrees with
everything the bible has to say
on the subject, especially when
Jesus said that the devil is the
father of the lie, and he accused
some of wanting to do like the
devil does? What about Jesus
words at Matthew 15:8 where we
can read, "this people draweth
nigh unto me with their mouth,
and honoureth me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me."
Did Jesus say "pick a verse here,
pick a verse there, even out of the
intended context if you want to,
as long as you profess me as
your saviour, that is all that really
matters," or did he say "man shall
not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out
of the mouth of God."?  Mt 4:4
