Why people discredit the truth

Morning: Psalms 61, 62; Genesis 42:1-17; I Corinthians 5:1-8
Evening: Psalm 68:1-36; Mark 3:19b-35

As Jesus becomes an increasingly formidable opponent for those in power, his family says he is mentally ill.  They think they will protect him by saying he is mad … ‘not guilty by reason of insanity.’ Religious leaders, though, say Jesus is demon-possessed; they want to discredit his work by ‘demonizing’ him, because he undermines their power.  Our own society discredits Jesus by treating him as just a mildly interesting historical figure.  But the stakes are much higher than that – Jesus is either a dangerous madman or he really does introduce the world to a profound spiritual renewal.
