    This verse is most of the time taken out of context. This verse is not talking about the rapture of the church. It is talking about the physical second coming of Christ, when He comes to His earthly reign of 1 day, or 1000 years. The sheep and goats are the nations, not individuals v.31,32.

The Greek word translated nations means people and is most frequently translated Gentiles.

    You forgot the main characteristic of sheep:
    They stray. :D

    yup these verses is always taking out of context by catholics and insisting it as faith and works =full salvation

    but isnt unfair if you die and when you face God he will tell you if your out or in His Kingdom?
