Jesus told a parable about a man sowing good seeds in his field and then while men were sleeping the enemy came in and sowed tares (weeds, darnel, a weed which resembles wheat) in the field. When the crop came up the wheat was evident but so were the weeds. The workers wanted to go and dig out the weeds and the landowner said no because while digging out the weeds you will destroy much of the wheat as well.
The landowner ordered, “Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.” This is a picture of those who belong to the Lord and those who belong to Satan. Since none of us can see into every heart, it must wait ‘until the end of the age’ when Christ sorts it out.
However, there are other bundles of evil that can be burned now. Any known and obvious sins and evil should be gathered up and torched. We do not need to wait for ‘the angels’ to sort it out. We can make these judgments.
Jesus interpreted his parable this way, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age.” There you have it.
“Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age.” Jesus
