Posted on 12/14/2012 8:26:40 AM PST by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random):
The universal judgment of the human race at the final resurrection of the dead. It is expressed in all the creeds that affirm that Christ now "sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from where He shall come to judge the living and the dead," i.e., the just and the wicked. This will be a social judgment because it will manifest to the world God's justice in condemning sinners, and his mercy in those who are saved. It will also be a total judgment by revealing not only people's moral conduct but all the accumulated blessings or injuries that resulted from each person's good or evil deeds.
|24||He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, `Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow;|
|25||so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'|
|26||But his master answered him, `You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?|
|27||Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.|
|28||So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents.|
|29||For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.|
|30||And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'|
|31||"When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.|
|32||Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,|
|33||and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.|
|34||Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;|
|35||for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,|
|36||I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'|
|37||Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?|
|38||And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee?|
|39||And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?'|
|40||And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'|
|41||Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;|
