If this had been only a natural disease, as some have
contended, could our Lord with any propriety have thus
addressed it? If the demoniacal possession had been false, or
merely a vulgar error, would our Lord, the Revealer of truth,
have thus established falsehood, sanctioned error, or
encouraged deception, by teaching men to ascribe effects to
the malice and power of evil spirits, which they had no agency
in producing? Impossible! Such conduct is utterly unworthy
the sacred character of the Redeemer.
