Matthew 11:12; Matthew 12:29; Matthew 13:19
"From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.
"Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
"When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road.
