People who accuse others are crazy. They exhibit the same behaviour as mad people. I mean for any Christian especially to be the mouthpiece of the devil on earth, they have to be a little crazy. Now people get a little upset when I call accusers mad, but I didn’t start that, Luke did:
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
– Luke 6.7-11, KJV, emphasis mine
Men and women filled with anger and rage and fear say untrue things to hurt the body of Christ and discredit people of God – yes that’s insane! And it happens all the time!
I spoke to a medical doctor about mad people, and apparently, that’s not a medical term. But the doctor did say that the main symptoms of what most people would think are mad people are paranoid delusions and auditory hallucinations. Paranoid delusions are the belief that there are very real forces around that are going to hurt you, and it makes the patient scared and convinced of things that are not real. Auditory hallucinations is hearing voices.
The fear that there are forces that will get you are what drive the patient into craziness, and it’s a fear that there are forces that will get you that drives people into accusations. Paranoia increases until the patient hears voices that are not there – accusers often imagine things that are simply not real! It’s the same process – accusers are crazy people!
People get so deceived and then they cling to their deception. They accuse a person of this that and the other, and you suggest they are wrong, they will get very upset indeed. So angry and furious!
Hatred is not part of a healthy psyche! We need to be so careful of accusers, they are attacking others out of hate, and that is not sane! We need to love them, but we also need strong firm barriers to stop that accusing spreading!
