You know, that is a really good point…

And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Mark 2:5-7 ESV

(You know, that is a really good point…)

“And immediately Jesus, “perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you question these things in your hearts? Which is easier to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’, or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’?(You know neither is really too hard for me, since I am God and all…) But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins(check this out)–he said to the paralytic–“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this! Mark 2:8-12 ESV

(Duh…you think?)
