The Context of St. Matthew 25


#1

The proponents of damning our Fathers vast majority to damnation will not fill in the blanks. Why??

There is one (1) passage of Canon for “everlasting punishment” (Matt.25). This one single verse is the cornerstone for the proponents of unending punishment.

This should be so easy!

According to the context of St. Matthew 25 and ONLY the context, please fill in the empty lines.

Please Note

This is the easy part, the questions following this cornerstone text will be harder!

Are our broadest hopes broad enough? Shall there be a nook or abyss, in all the universe of God, finally unlightened by the Cross? Shall there be a sin, or sorrow, or pain unhealed? Is the very universe, is creation in all its extent, a field wide enough for the Son of God?

This is such an easy exercise. Simple & straight forward.

Perhaps the harder aspects of this parable of Jesus Christ should be considered first.

  1. Why are “virgins” in the context of Matt.25?

  2. Why is this not a comparison between pure virgins and harlots or loose women?

  3. Why are two clean animals (according to Old Covenant) in the parable i.e. sheep & goats?

  4. Why not 1 clean animal and 1 unclean?

  5. Why not a sheep (clean) and a pig (unclean)?

WHY?

“Agreed, chance has no power or influence. He clearly identifies His own in scripture, His SHEEP. NOT ALL ARE HIS SHEEP. His sheep hear His voice when He calls, the goats do not!”

My friend have you ever wondered why the Master of reconciliation is speaking of two CLEAN animals in this parable? Have you ever thought why (in the context of Romans 25), He is also speaking of ten virgins (not harlots or loose women)?? WHY??

And, my friend, if His sheep hear His voice when He calls, why does a sheep dog exist, for companionship, perhaps?
