Temptation in the Wilderness


After Christ was baptized by John, He was driven into the wilderness by the Spirit where He was tempted by Satan. "If you are the Son of God," said the Opposition, turn these stones into bread, throw yourself from the Temple and finally, on the mountain, "fall down and worship me" in order to gain the power of the world.

Devil Witch?

The temptations follow a diabolical ascension, from stones to mountaintop and, arriving on the summit of wickedness, we find ourselves confronted by an inverse Sinai.

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

On this evil mountain we find God's commandments reversed; instead of loving Him, we are to worship the Devil and what flows from this? Power, as opposed to love. 

Christ said no to this, and the angels ministered to Him.

God bless,

Christ said no to power. Putin and Obama both say yes!
