The Parable Of The Ten Virgins

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sure J____,

The five wise symbolize those who are chosen out of the many called. The five foolish symbolize the many called. Percentages are not the subject here. Lack of God’s spirit is what is in view. This parable in no way contradicts:

Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

This parable does not teach that fifty per cent of those called will be chosen any more than the parable of the unjust steward teaches us to be unjust thieves. What this parable does teach is vigilance and our constant need to be in God’s Word.
