The height of stupidity

“But the Pharisees said, He casteth out demons through the prince of demons.” (Matt 9:34) These words are the height of stupidity, for no demon casts out other demons. But let us suppose that He cast out demons as one who served the prince of demons, that is, as a magician. How then did He heal diseases, forgive sins, and preach the Kingdom? For the demon does just the opposite: he brings on diseases and separates man from God.
Blessed Theophylact
