#GospelToday (Mt 13:36-43)
Then, dismissing the crowds, he went into the house. His disciples approached him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."
He said in reply, "He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the kingdom. The weeds are the children of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
Just as weeds are collected and burned [up] with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.
@George This part stuck with me
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin...
Me too. Holy scripture in general, and Our Lord in particular, use such strong words in many places.
I find the universalist everyone will be saved sentiments so many suggest to be 180-degrees opposite the quite clear revealed truth. ...and completely misleading, extremely dangerous.
