In this chapter, the Lord speaks of those who are sheep and those who are goats. The irony, at least historically, is how often the term sheep is used derogatively about people in general and believers in particular. When an atheist online doesn’t want to deal with the facts raised by a believer, they will dismiss the speaker with the ad hominem ‘sheeple’ as if that was the end of things.
What a compliment, to be called a sheep (even by your enemies). Some bristle at the thought of being seen as sheep, but in reality it should be something we are grateful for and aspire to become.
