“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the goats on his right and the sheep on his left.
Then the King will say to the goats, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you fed me with holy words, I was thirsty and you took away my strong drink. I was a stranger and you set high standards for friendship, I needed clothes and you shamed me in my nakedness then gave me your castoffs, I was sick and you told me to pray for healing, I was in prison and you said it was what I deserved.’
The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whenever you admonished the least of these brothers of mine, you made my job easier.’
Then he will say to the sheep, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you only gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing but drink, I was a stranger and you only invited me in, I needed clothes and you took me shopping, I was sick and in prison and all you did was visit with me.’
‘I tell you the truth, whenever you spent your worldly efforts on one of the least of these you pushed them even farther away from salvation.’
Then the weak and soft sheep will go away to eternal punishment, but the strong and righteous goats to eternal life.
