What is man believing/doing?:

What is making man to believe/do as he is doing?:


Good tree is good fruit. The tree Pharisee is known to be rotted and corrupt, yet it is the fruit of this tree that the public is apparently heeding. How much weight in the matter does the fact that Jesus is healing and is relying upon the testimony of the witnesses of such wonders to do His talking actually have? For now less and less.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. Suspicion is highly effective with us, even if logically refuted the callous lingers and swells. The seed of suspicion doesn't even have to be well thought out, it can be saturated with obvious contradiction and still come off publicly just as strong.
  2. We feel it best to avoid the suspect all together than come to a firm conclusion either way as to the suspicions veracity.
