[quote:Anonymous Coward 28393709:MV8yMDYxNjQ1XzM0Njg3ODc1XzkxNjcxNjhG] The field is the world. The good seed are the children of the kingdom. The weeds are the children of the evil one, The harvest is the end of the age. The reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are collected and burned up with fire. so will it be at the end of the age. “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’” I believe one reason Jesus spake in parables? Psychopaths, and Sociopaths have difficulty understanding parables due to the ingerent congenital defect in their Reptile-Like functioning Minds. [/quote]
"“Again the kingdom of the heavens is like a dragnet let down into the sea and gathering up [fish] of every kind. 48 When it got full they hauled it up onto the beach and, sitting down, they collected the fine ones into vessels, but the unsuitable they threw away. 49 That is how it will be in the conclusion of the system of things: the angels will go out and separate the wicked from among the righteous 50 and will cast them into the fiery furnace. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be.
