Re: The Goats were followers of Jesus.
Jar writes:

while the latter are astonished because they knew that they did do for him even though he says they did not:

41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.


I imagine that all of the Goats will be Christians.

It seems to me that he is casting them aside because of their lack of regard for their fellow man not because of their belief in Jesus. I don't think that you can just lump all Christians into this set just because they are Christian. I believe what the text is trying to portray is that your acts are held in higher regards than your professed beliefs.
