All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


Sep 4, 2016

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, September 4, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Steven Williams, Student Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

There’s a passage in Matthew 5 that starts, “When the Son of Man comes... All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” Instead of taking a literal approach to this statement, I think it represents what kind of behavior God wants from people, and what the world would look like in the best case scenario, where we act in our common interest — or the worst case scenario, where we act in our self-interest. When we act like goats, which are hierarchical, everyone-for-oneself creatures, then the world suffers. But, when we act in the interest of all humanity, we allow for eternal life.
