Wow. They said somewhat the same thing about the Lord. That must mean...?
Matthew 10:25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but byBeelzebub the prince of the devils.
Luke 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.
No insults intended and I could be directing this to myself and all those who hold to a literal Scripture interpretation and not the imaginative preterist view which could so easily be twisted in any direction.
BUT because I hold to this literal interpretation and at times, accept typology, I DOUBT my way of thinking is influenced by anyone or any spirit apart from the Holy Spirit.
The dangers of subjective interpretation is obvious to most. If one abandons literal interpretation as the predominant method of interpretation then you are open to any imaginings of the mind, preconceived notions of doctrine or other spirits.
It takes no brain scientist to know that the worlds religions are all backed and promoted by demonic principalities intended to keep the lost, lost and religious. The same type of influences work within fundamental groups in my opinion.
I know you three amigoes all claim that your subjective views of Scripture are literal but you are wrong. You presume that appling man's twisted records of history to your Scriptural views lend them weight when they actually do the opposite. It causes you to ignore way too much literal interpretation for me and most to accept the ideas.
