    Goats are not exclusively people who havenít repented of their sins.

    Matthew 25:33 doesnít actually say that one group are labelled as goats ďbecause they havenít repented of their sinsĒ.

    We know that this is untrue because Matthew 7:21-23 has made it clear that God doesnít always forgive people who repent, but he can still reject (or condemn) those who have tried to repent of their sins.

    Matthew 25:33 is talking about the sheep and goats, but the goats are an ECLECTIC MIX of people:-

    (1) Those who havenít repented of their sins

    AND

    (2) People whose sincere (or insincere) repentance have been rejected by God as clearly stated in Matthew 7:21-23

    Therefore, it is patently false to say that the ďgoatsĒ mentioned in Matthew 25:33 are EXCLUSIVELY the ones who havenít repented, because the goats are an ECLECTIC MIX of the ones who have repented AND those who havenít repented; as clearly stated in the aforementioned.

    However, I know that some of you would disagree with what I have said, but wishful thinking itself doesnít make you right, nor does it mean that this interpretation is false.

    So you may well disagree, but what are you going to do about it?

    The goats are the ones who practice lawlessness .... practice .... continue in lawlessness.

    You might not have noticed, but a goat is a different species. Goats do not become lambs at the point of regeneration. Goats are reprobates for whom there is no redemption.
    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.
