The Criticism Leveled at Jesus
As a believer in Jesus Christ, I think most of God's servants have face criticism. In today's passage, we'll see that Jesus faced criticism not only from His foes, but also from his friends. They said He was beside Himself, out of His mind, and they came to rescue Him before He could make a bigger fool of Himself... or so they thought! But the religious leaders leveled a much stronger charge against Jesus. They could not deny the reality of the miracles He was doing, so they attributed His miracles to the power of Satan. That brings us to the point we're going to talk about this morning. It's one of those curious things that Christians are often troubled over and that's the unpardonable sin.
