THE CHURCH AND DEMONS

UNDAILY Episode 79



Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been mute spoke, and the crowd was amazed. But some of them said, “By Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he is driving out demons.” Others tested him by asking for a sign from heaven. Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall. If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebul. Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. “When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up his plunder. “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.


LUKE 11, 14-23 (NIV)

 

Today's parable is like a journalistic look at reality. Demons of war and famine rage across the world, and we sit in front of our televisions, commenting on the battle between good and evil. Just as it was in the past, so it is today—humanity grapples with divisions, a lack of goodwill, and superficial judgments. The story written by Luke, despite the passage of centuries, has not lost its relevance. Jesus, doing good and casting out demons, encounters misunderstanding and accusations of collaborating with Beelzebub. Does this sound familiar? How often is the good we do undermine, and our intentions questioned? In the modern world, where distrust and skepticism reign, it's easy to forget that true goodness has its source only in God.
