What if we were to switch the scribes with the Obama administration?
"The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus, 'He is possessed by Beelzebul,' and 'By the prince of demons he drives out demons.'" Mark 3:22
The Catholic Church in America, and universally, identifies herself as the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church--the fullness of Christian Truth. Theologically, for centuries, the faithful have understood themselves as the Body of Christ--the embodiment of Jesus the Savior in the world. For the Catholic Church is nourished on the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, and, though imperfect in her all too human members, she is Perfected, and protected from doctrinal error, by the Holy Spirit given to her by the Father, through the Son, who won for His Body, and Bride, eternal salvation through the Cross and Resurrection.
So, how does the Obama administration blaspheme against her Spirit?
Systematically, the Obama administration has worked to usurp the Catholic Church's moral authority. And not only the Church's authority, but the Holy Spirit's authority. Of course they can never really do this--yet, they are guilty of trying. The HHS mandate demands that the disciples of Christ pay for forced death in abortion and contraception. Furthermore, one of the Presidents minions, Nancy Pelosi, even called the ground on which Planned Parenthood existed 'holy ground.' The Obama administration, moreover, has accused Catholics, and Christians in general, of a war on women--describing promiscuity, contraception, sterilization, and abortion as freedom.
The Obama administration has even introduced our teenage girls to Plan-B abortifacients. If this is not blaspheming against the Spirit of Jesus, I don't know what is.
"Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
'How can Satan drive out Satan?
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself,
that house will not be able to stand.
And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
he cannot stand;
that is the end of him.'" Mark 3:23-27
Goodness seeks unity. Evil seeks division. The Catholic Church is all about reconciliation. The Obama administration is all about division--in class warfare, in the desecration of the Sacrament of Marriage, in the legalization of recreational drugs, in rewarding illegal alien activity, in the weakening of our national defense, and in the socialization of our economy (through economic redistribution).
Good always combats evil through the exercise of charity. Evil always combats good by creating a vacuum of goodness--then filling it with evil. Look at our society. 'Knockout' games, weekly school shootings, pornography and abortion on demand, the propaganda media, smutty Hollywood, daily attacks on the Constitution, crooked government--regardless of party affiliation...evil is filling the vacuum left empty by lukewarm Catholicism in America.
But that's another story.
"But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property
unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house." Mark 3:27
But the Obama administration has forgotten one important fact; rather, they do not have faith in this important fact! Jesus has already won victory over sin and death, consequently, over all evil.
Thus, Jesus is the strong man. Tyrannical government is the house to be plundered.
"Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
that people utter will be forgiven them.
But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
will never have forgiveness,
but is guilty of an everlasting sin.”
For they had said, 'He has an unclean spirit.'” Mark 3:28-30
