“Cast Them into the Fire”

Brant Gardner

The Lord justifies the destruction of the worst of the branches. This removal of the worst of the branches allows the strength of the root to concentrate on the more productive branches. Even though the allegory makes it appear that this might be a finished task, it is probably the continuing task of the preaching of the gospel, and part of the events of the final days.
