Bible: Mark 3:22-30
3:22 The experts in the law 1 who came down from Jerusalem 2 said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” 3 and, “By the ruler 4 of demons he casts out demons.” 3:23 So 5 he called them and spoke to them in parables: 6 “How can Satan cast out Satan? 3:24 If 7 a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom will not be able to stand. 3:25 If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. 3:26 And if Satan rises against himself and is divided, he is not able to stand and his end has come. 3:27 But no one is able to enter a strong man’s 8 house and steal his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can thoroughly plunder his house. 9 3:28 I tell you the truth, 10 people will be forgiven for all sins, even all the blasphemies they utter. 11 3:29 But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin” 12 3:30 (because they said, “He has an unclean spirit” 13 ).
