G O S P E L

It is a sad day when the arguments of one’s enemies or detractors become as facile as the ones we hear today against the power of Jesus to drive demons from a possessed person. It is a sign that they are “clutching at straws” and do not really have any basis to criticize the actions and words of Jesus. The only honorable position to take in this situation is to keep quiet and disappear or submit to the teachings of Jesus.

Luke 11:14-23
14 Jesus was driving out a demon [that was] mute, and when the demon had gone out, the mute person spoke and the crowds were amazed. 15 Some of them said, “By the power of Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he drives out demons.” 16 Others, to test him, asked him for a sign from heaven. 17 But he knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste and house will fall against house. 18 And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that it is by Beelzebul that I drive out demons. 19 If I, then, drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your own people drive them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 20 But if it is by the finger of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 21 When a strong man fully armed guards his palace, his possessions are safe. 22 But when one stronger than he attacks and overcomes him, he takes away the armor on which he relied and distributes the spoils. 23 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.”

my reflections
think:If people are not going to be true to what they say, then we live in a poor reflection of Gospel truth.
