I'm picking up a question from ShotGunWillie on another thread because it seems this should have its own thread. Notice I spelled "judgment" without the "e" after the "g," which is the preferred way to spell it! Okay, I admit it, spelling is a big deal to me. I assume you are asking about Matt. 25:31-46? Many use this passage as a way teaching to take care of poor or hungry people, but I do not think this is what it is about. If it were, it would be saying that if you don't help poor or hungry people, or people in jail, you are going to "everlasting punishment." That always bothered me when I've heard Christians use this passage to say we should help the hungry (and I've heard quite a few use the passage this way). Some believe this is a judgment of nations after the MK for how they treated Israel -- this could be the nations in the OT for how they disobeyed God and invaded Israel, etc. The scenario has 3 groups: the sheep, the goats, and the "brothers." Some believe it is a judgment after the Tribulation. I realize endtime views will play into this and that is fine to use that to give a response, but please don't argue endtime stuff on this thread (as in premil vs. amil/pre-Trib vs. postTrib, etc.) in such a way that the point of addressing this passage becomes lost. Thoughts?
