Today we see that casting out demons from people and places or the more moderate practice of chasing away their influence and temptations by prayer and blessings is big business. At an extreme, people are forking out a fortune to evangelists and clergy and others to banish cancer or avert cancer striking. I wonder did Jesus get paid? It is telling and worrying that the gospels won’t say one way or the other. Was Jesus charging for treating demons or preventing them getting in the first place? He blamed the victim if the demon came back in Matthew 12 so he had a loophole that looks very suspicious.  Occultists like that try to put the demon in or make the person think they are demonised.

The Jewish religious teachers who knew a thing or two about religion said of Jesus in Mark 3:22: ‘He is possessed by Be-el’zebul, and by the prince of demons he casts out the demons.’  They could not call him possessed unless they thought he really was.  To call him possessed was unnecessary and actually an indication of compassion and denies Jesus could be responsible for his actions.  If they wanted to slander Jesus they would have said, "He is a disciple of the prince of demons and that is how he casts out demons."
When the Jews suggested that Jesus’ exorcisms were just tricks of the Devil Jesus said they were not for Satan could not cast out Satan and destroy his own kingdom. This tells us that the Devil cannot have a kingdom without possessing people which implies that most people must be demon-possessed. Since he tempts all he must possess all. They can blame the Devil and not themselves then for their sins. The teaching proves that Jesus used fear and terror to derange people and manipulate them so that they hardly knew what was real. Moreover, Jesus knew the Devil could cast out demons under certain circumstances for he would only be sending them to somebody else anyway. Jesus lied. Whoever is not against the Devil is for him. Not once did any gospel verify that anybody Jesus was cured of a Devil stayed cured forever. Jesus said a demon will come back if a man is not holy enough which is a good excuse for a fake exorcist who fails so he must have needed the excuse. Jesus was a false prophet and when one of them does exorcisms is enough to prove that he is using the Devil to do them if the Devil exists. Jesus even went as far as to say that anybody suspecting that the Devil was doing his miracles would never be saved so he was going to make sure that people would be afraid to think critically about his miracle exorcisms and his other miracles by extension. He was the one that said the Devil is very crafty.  It takes one to know one. 

Jesus dangerously implied that the Devil cannot have a kingdom without possessing people. This is a terrifying idea and if we are demon possessed how can we know what is real or true? How can we know that Jesus was the good prophet he said he was? The Bible speaks of the devil as being the real god of this world and who specialises in making people blind to the truth which is Christianity (2 Corinthians 4:4). In other words, he is not being said to be divine but the world is treating him as its God. When Satan is so powerful and is the god of the world and can’t have a kingdom without possessing then most possessions are discreet. The possessed don’t feel possessed. But Satan is controlling their feelings so they feel free. He is controlling their thinking and they think they are free. He sees no good in scaring people unnecessarily but in manipulating them to make them evil and harden their hearts against God.  Jesus treated the scribes and Pharisees despite their respectability and seeming goodness as the biggest emissaries of Satan not possessed people or prostitutes or tax collectors. This was because the scribes and Pharisees specialised in the most dangerous evil of all, evil that looks good and is disguised as good.
To me, a man who thinks everybody else is possessed must feel possessed himself!

Jesus went as far as to imply the accusers themselves had an unforgiveable sin - they blasphemed the Holy Spirit.  The claim that this sin refers to an ingrained inability to repent is nonsense.  How can that be called blasphemy which means saying sacrilegious things?  Luke is clear that the context is blasphemy as in blasphemy.  The idea is that that they insulted God so gravely that he will not forgive them even if they want it.  They now belong to the demons themselves.

The demons Jesus cast out of the Gerasene demoniac (Luke 8) pleaded for Jesus to send them into pigs rather than send them back to the abyss and he obliged. They went into the pigs but the pigs then drowned themselves. The demons Jesus put out of the Gerasene man were wrong to think he was going to send them back to the pit – they didn’t realise he was going to give them the bodies of the pigs. It is not said that he meant for the pigs to drown themselves. But that is what happened. And we can be sure Jesus must have known that the pigs would go berserk. If you put mad demons into pigs what do you expect? Jesus facilitated the possession of the pigs. It is strange how people fear Satan sending demons to them when the Bible says Jesus controls what they do!
We read in Matthew 12 that Jesus taught that when a demon leaves a man it searches for a new home and if it can’t find one it comes back to the man. When it finds the man’s house meaning his life tidied up it gets seven others worse than itself and they all possess the man so he ends up worse than he was at the start.
Some say the tidied up stands for the man having himself prepared for demons to make their home in him. Others say it means that the man is purified and holy.
The man would be unlikely to want the demons back so the tidying means getting rid of all that makes you unholy. When you are tidied you are holy.
The man would be in the same position and state as somebody that was never possessed so why him and not somebody else?
The metaphor of tidiness implies that the man is now good. If the man was evil, the metaphor of untidiness would be appropriate.
Jesus then meant that a holy person can become possessed.
Jesus is telling us these things.
1.     The demon can come back to a good man and take him over and even bring its friends. So the only reason it couldn’t possess anybody else was because they were too full of demons so there was no room for another.
2. It tells us that the demons are desperate to live in bodies and most people are possessed.
3. It tells us that since we all sin that sin will let demons in far easier than a demon will get back into a man who was saved from it and who became a decent man.
4. Jesus added that the generation he belonged to was evil and would have the same fate as the man who got rid of demons and got them back with more parasite demons with them for company (Matthew 12:45). Jesus made the demons seem to be the power that rules the world. This could only attract people to consort with them for material favours.

Jesus taught that anybody who dies in a state of estrangement from God will suffer forever in Hell. This was a very serious slander for nobody could be bad enough to go forever to a place where there is no joy and no love. Anybody that says that they could be, is kidding himself. You need infinite proof to say that anybody deserves suffering that lasts forever or infinitely. And when there is no evidence whatsoever for free will that is free enough to choose such an unspeakable fate of everlasting despair the doctrine is plainly reprehensible. We cannot prove by experience or logic that we really have free will at all. Animals and drunks are not free and feel free. To say this power whose abuse lands you in Hell forever is to say something really malicious. You could feel free and still be programmed by the environment. Jesus obviously hoped that sinners who die will rot in Hell forever. Even if we have free will we cannot assume it can go as far as to choose that kind of fate.

Jesus invented the doctrine of everlasting punishment which implies that the damned should suffer for their sins forever though it would do no harm if they did not suffer that long. We need punishment or crime control in this world and it is a necessary evil to prevent chaos. Thus he ensured that Christianity would hate sinners and the damned however vehemently it would pretend it does not. It is pure evil for any Christian to say he believes that a homosexual or adulterer or heretic should suffer forever in Hell when the evidence is not good enough for that tells us only that he would like to see this happen to sinners like that. Yet Jesus himself is at the root of this evil.

Jesus supported God's Jewish Law despite its cruelties. God gave parents the legal right to have their lazy drunkard sons killed by stoning (Deuteronomy 21). How can we trust a man like that?
Jesus cured only those who were in his presence. If you were a blind man and you got to Jerusalem a day late you didn't get cured. Jesus was cruel for upsetting vulnerable people like that. Curing those in his presence shows he was healing them not because he cared about them but because he wanted to show-off. He is like a teacher who buys sweets for the children when half of them have gone on a nature walk. If the children are sick or disabled you can see how much worse it is.

Jesus made out that we are more likely to sin than do good. The Church says we were born sinful and that the effects of this make sure we will struggle with sin all our life. This demolishes the freedom defence. It says evil and sin are our fault not God’s for we abused his gift of free will and he couldn’t stop us. God supposedly gave us free will so that we could love him or hate him. If so, then he should not be making us biased towards sin or creating weakness in us that is drawn to sin. We should be able to live sinless lives even if many of us don’t. Jesus’ evil God ordains sin and evil to take place.

The Devil wanted Jesus to jump off the Temple and arrange for angels to catch him safely to convert the people. The Devil was not asking Jesus to focus on show for he never said that. He was not asking Jesus to convert the people the easy way for he never said that either. He was just asking Jesus to try and force God to save him. That was why Jesus replied that nobody must tempt God. If Jesus had been God or the Son of God gifted with miracle power he would not have been tempting God to save him for the power was under his control. By working miracles, Jesus had given into this temptation. The Devil won.
Matthew 10:13 tells us that Jesus believed that his powers worked by magic. In it, Jesus tells the disciples that if they confer peace on a deserving house they are in it will be blessed with peace but if the house is undeserving the peace will come back to the disciples.
This makes no sense unless the prayer that confers the peace is really a spell. A spell is sending magic energy out of you. Jesus wants the disciples to cast spells for peace and the spell will bless them themselves by coming back to them if there is nobody peaceable who will let the spell work. Jesus gave the disciples this power so he was claiming he did his wonders by magic.
This would bring him under condemnation for the Torah condemned all magic-making as being opposed to God and deserving of death. Sorcerers even ones who did mostly good were banned from the midst of the Hebrews.

Christian circles hear about this creature, a former angel, who is no the chief architect of evil in the universe. Satan. He may appear as an angel of light as the Bible says. Jesus said it is the heart that counts and we are told Satan is pure malice inside. He has loads of minions. Jesus is reported to have cast demons out in the Bible. Oddly, why does Satan himself not possess any of these people?

Acts 10:38 has Peter saying that Jesus went about healing those oppressed by the Devil. But that is a very broad expression.  The gospels blame demons for different illnesses.  Satan sent them to do it.  Jesus in the Gospel of John never mentions anybody being possessed but he complains a lot about Satan lying to the people.  Nothing at all says Jesus exorcised Satan himself.

 It is suspicious that Catholic circles claim to have verified exorcisms that put Satan out and the exorcism rite assumes he is possessing the victims. It's very boastful to do what Jesus himself never claimed to do. It looks like possessing people is too much of a distraction so Satan who has to manage chaotic demonic armies does not waste time on it. There is another possibility.  If Jesus casts out only the stupidest or most pathetic demons and not Satan then whose side is he really on? This looks too deliberate. The Jews had a point when they doubted that his exorcisms were really holy and inspiring. There is something evil about somebody making out a person has a demon when the demon is so easily to fake.

Jesus treated his miracles of healing as signs of his power over the devils.  For example, a story about his curing a victim of epilepsy by getting a devil out says that some illnesses are the work of demons.  Christians boast that they do not believe this is true of every illness. They fear the trouble that would come from doctors and psychiatrists if they said they did believe it.  But surely if somebody is sake it is safer to treat them as if a demon is involved just in case?  The lies that Jesus' doctrine about demons has led to shows he should not be worshipped the way he is.

Christians reason that Satan cannot heal anybody though he may make it look like he did.  They point to how the magicians of Egypt could copy some of God's wonders.  Eg they could turn water to blood.  They could do stunts but as for doing good with their powers they failed.  They could not treat the plague of boils in Exodus 9 at all.  There Moses fires soot up in the air and God turns it into some kind of acid that gives them boils.  The Christians think Satan was supplying power to those magicians while the power of Moses was really God's power.  Christians are reasoning strangely for aren't they saying God miraculously hurts people?  That is what I would worry about not the failure of the magicians to heal.
