The Day of the Lord had come and all of creation had been gathered before Him. The time was at hand for God to separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He gathered the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. To those on his right he said, “You are blessed. Take your inheritance, The Kingdom that has been prepared for you since before the creation of the World. For when I was hungry you fed me, when I was thirsty you gave me something to drink, when I was in prison you visited me, when I was naked you clothed me, and when I was sick you came and took care of me.”
The people on his right responded, “When did we ever even see you?”
The King replied, “Whatever you did to the least of these you did to me.”
Then He turned to the people on his left, who were mostly those who claimed Christianity, and said, “Depart from me for you never knew me.”
The people cried out, “How can this be? We believed all the right things about you! We gathered with each other every week and even went to great lengths to seclude ourselves from those who we perceived as wicked and a threat to your name.”
The creator replied, “And this is the very reason why you never knew me.”
