Day 312

Today’s Reading – Matthew 25

And they will go away into eternal punishment. But the righteous ones will go into eternal life. 

Matthew 25:46 CEB

This statement by Christ is part of a larger story of judgment.

I find it interesting amidst the renewed debate in the Christian community regarding the existence of hell or eternal punishment.

These are the words of Christ – eternal (meaning forever) and punishment (meaning something other than reward).

What was the debate again?

Your choice – read the story again – Are you a sheep or a goat?


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
