Dismiss Evil Thoughts

Lower Pool of SiloamAfter Jesus had healed the paralyzed man lowered on his bed to where Jesus was the teachers of the Law criticized him. Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to the teachers of the law in Matthew 9.4-6, "'Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up and walk?' But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.' So he said to the paralyzed man, 'Get up, take your mat and go home.'" Being released from his sins the man did the freedom walk. Jesus asserted here that because of his deity he had the authority to forgive sins and release people from the hold that sin can have on us including the ability to dismiss evil thoughts. The grateful man who was no doubt thoroughly confused by now by the teachers of the law simply got up, did the Jesus freedom walk and went off to see his family!
