not pleasant

This concludes my study of Jesus the Christ Chapter 13...All quotes are taken from this chapter unless otherwise noted.

Luke 4:32
Matthew 7:28-29; 13:54
Mark 1:22
Luke 4:33-37
Mark 1:23-28
Luke 4:41
Matthew 10:8
Matthew 8:32
Matthew 8:29-33
Matthew 8:14-15

This idea of evil spirits is not pleasant. Even though the evil spirits Jesus encountered knew Him, they remained evil still evil. Knowledge alone isn't enough. To be a follower of Jesus Christ, one must choose to walk in His way with faith.

I can't imagine the torment of those that gave up their chance for a body and eternal progression. When I mentor high schoolers, I always assign The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Although I love reading scripture and encourage my students to delve into them, this book paints a vivid picture of the deviousness of Satan and his minions. Sometimes I wonder if some types of mental illnesses are evil spirits. Who knows?
