meninlove said donovan the bible texts were written by a primitive people that believed the earth was flat. Keep that in mind when worshiping that book the way you do.
Find what the bible says about mental illnesses. You won't. It's devils n demons (possessed). They didn't understand what Christ was doing (curing mental illness) so they wrote this:
"They came to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
When he had come out of the boat,
immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
who had his dwelling in the tombs.
Nobody could bind him any more, not even with chains,
because he had been often bound with fetters and chains,
and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the fetters broken in pieces.
Nobody had the strength to tame him.
Always, night and day, in the tombs and in the mountains,
he was crying out, and cutting himself with stones.
When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed down to him,
and crying out with a loud voice, he said,
"What have I to do with you, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God?
I adjure you by God, don’t torment me."
For he said to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!"
He asked him, "What is your name?"
He said to him, "My name is Legion, for we are many."
He begged him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
Now there was on the mountainside a great herd of pigs feeding.
All the demons begged him, saying,
"Send us into the pigs, that we may enter into them."
At once Jesus gave them permission.
The unclean spirits came out and entered into the pigs.
The herd of about two thousand rushed down the steep bank into the sea,
and they were drowned in the sea."
Jesus Christ is able to do anything for He has been given power and authority over all.
Now about this scripture there are a few things we need to look at
1) Do you not believe that this man was demon possessed?
2) Why did Jesus send the demonds into the pigs
firstly Jesus Christ removed the demons out this man. He was full of them. This happens to this day. The devil is real. He has his demonds doing his work. Another thing to remember that the fallen angels had sex with the woman of the earth and gave birth to giants, the nephilim. These God wiped out with the flood. We have accounts of eye witnesses of these giants in Israels time.
It is most likely that demons fo invade and possess people, this man was not mentaly ill on his own accord, he had legion living in him, many demons. Mary Magdalen had 7 demons in her, Jesus cast them all out.
You must remember that every knee will bow and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord including Satan himself, after all Satan is a cherub one of the most powerful of the heavenly hosts.
Why did Jesus send these demons into the pigs? In this biblical time there was sacrifces been done with pigs and they were sacrificed to zeus and other false Gods.
Jesus Christ not only got rid of these demons but He destroye the false Gods sacrifices to. It was the entire heard that drown.
We must never underestimate the power of the Lord Jesus Christ
There are many places were Jesus removes demons from people, there are many cases of today with people been demon possessed.
It was not Mark who wrote that but THE HOLY SPIRIT who is the AUTHOR of ALL scripture, it is God who wrote the scriptures.
I understand He used humans to do it but it was inspired by the Holy Spirit and yes I understand there are many translation of the Bible and they are all translations, the original scriptures are in Hebrew and Greek.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God the Bread of Life is the Word
So if you do not EAT HIS flesh and drink His blood then no life is within.
It is very important to ensure we all ready because the time is coming , the sky is going to open and then the Son of God will be relvealed and then it is too late for the peple who are not washed by the blood of Jesus Christ. The sins are all recorded in the Heavenly books, God will show each one why He has condemened them.
