separating sheep from goats

separating the sheep from the goats

sheep and goats

When I first drew this cartoon several years ago, I wanted to portray how so many people indirectly condemn people to judgment and to hell. Such as some people would never tell a gay person they are going to hell to their face. But they will say gay people are going to hell. Keeping it general somehow seems less personal. Even though it’s not. Put yourself in the goats’ hooves.

But then there are others who just outright tell people that’s where they’re going. Now it seems more cool to be more direct.

    None of us is qualified to tell anyone that they are going to hell. Or to know.

    But Christ is qualified and He will divide those who He knows from those He does not know.

    I pray that He will be merciful and send as few people to hell as He sees fit.

    I say this because I deserve to go to hell, also.

    It’s troublesome to me how many “Christians” relish in hell… it’s like they love it… they enjoy pronouncing judgement and putting stumbling blocks in front of people. They mock gay people who are going to hell, but their wife who is the church gossip will be right next to the gay person at the final day…. Very sad and discouraging…

    Many believers tell their children that non-believer children are going to hell, but they tell them to keep it a secret that should only be shared at church or during family devotionals. Hell is whispered among Christians who say stuff like, “None of us is qualified to tell anyone that they are going to hell.”

    Lots of kids have told my kids they are going to hell. Guess where they got that idea from.

    I used to believe in Hell but then i really started to read the Bible. Tell me, if hell was our punishment, why did God never mention it to Adam and Eve, much less to my knowledge it is not mentioned at all in the old testament. Also, if it was such an important topic, why is it Paul does not spend any time on it in all of the books he wrote? Because, his mission was to continue the work of Christ and tell the world that God the Father loved all people and that Christ died to cover Everybody’s sin not just the believers.
