Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

President Lincoln was simply quoting Jesus when he said that a kingdom divided cannot stand.

But some of them aid, "By Beelzebul, the prince of demons, he is driving out demons."
                                                 --Luke 11:15 TNIV
Jesus appeals to logic when his critics accuse him of healing people, driving out demons by sorcery or demonic powers.  To which he says, "Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall."  (Luke 11:17)  The logic is compelling: Why would the forces of evil do such good?  Not only are they about destruction, but incapable of such good.

No, when good happens, be assured, God is up to something; this is a manifestation of the Kingdom of God.
