RTE Broadcast Service – Church without prejudice
Over the centuries Christian communities have taken a wide variety of stances when faced with unbelief and rejection, but many have been tempted to adopt a divisive and judgmental approach. At face value, today’s gospel parable has been interpreted by some individuals and churches as condoning such an approach. However, they have paid insufficient attention to the countervailing patience and forbearance demanded in the parable of the wheat and the tares, and indeed the inherent warning. We are simply not wise enough, we are told, we have neither the depth nor the length of vision, to tell between what deserves to be saved or discarded.
