New essay at Abiding Quaker: "Opening the Scriptures: Parable of the Wheat and the Tares"

The following paragraph is an excerpt from a new post titled "Opening the Scriptures: Parable of the Wheat and the Tares." It can be found at Abiding Quaker

For Fox, the end of the world is the end of the worldly self, the unredeemed, fallen self that is in opposition to and independent of God. Dying to that self, the inward cross, is the worldly death that entails “wailing and gnashing of teeth” (v. 42). Once this inward separation of spirit from worldly flesh, wheat from tares, good from evil, has taken place, and the tares gathered and burned, “then,” says Jesus, “the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Mt. 13:42-43)
