#3 – Matthew 8:31

The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.”

I’ve been thinking about this verse all day.  Meditated on it.  And I was curious as to why Jesus granted their request.  My personal belief is that Christians cannot be demon possessed.  Demon oppressed, yes.  Possessed? No.  So, in my opinion He didn’t drive them out because the men the demons  possessed were Christians.  Did He send them out because they weren’t YET Christians and as I believe, it is His will that all should be saved? Was He giving them another chance?  That would be just like Him – grace to the utmost.


So, why didn’t He just send them out of the man without sending them into the pigs?  I have no idea.  I will be completely honest.  I’m not a theologian or a Bible scholar.  I’m just one girl seeking after the heart of her God.
