Mat 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
Mat 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
Mat 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Mat 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Mat 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mat 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mat 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
This parable is used to say that unbelievers are thrown into the lake of fire and believers (christians) go to heaven

However what I notice is that the offending wicked things are gathered out of the son of mans of his kingdom and burnt

It seems to relate more to the judgment on the Jews in 70AD ....... I do not believe it is targeted at unbelievers at all.

This parable of the sower is not a good as the other parable in Matthew 13;3-8... Which the sower was sowing the Word of God,,, wheras this sower parable in Matthew 13:37-43, the sower is Jesus ministries in the world but spend most of the time talking to all the people that offended the kingdom of Heaven and them that do iniquity and those that rejected the sowers seed.......This is one of those weak parables that Jesus had, there was only less than a hand full of this weak ones......

You are correct, however, they are still thrown into the lake of fire, otherwise known as the burning flame from Daniel.
