The DEEP - Fellowship of Ailbe
This is about the kingdom, not the second coming.
The thing that kills prayers is pretending to be perfect.
For now, supper will do.
Jesus gives them an advanced lesson.
Jesus can't let anything get in the way of getting crucified.
He casts out a demon and all the people of the surrounding country ask Him to leave.
Jesus needs to keep that a secret for now.
Why are they so impressed this time?
This passage is easy as long as you duck the predestination issues.
Who is this, who even forgives sins?
but the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the purpose of God for themselves.
Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
