There is a clue to the answer to your question in the very next verse of Mark chapter 3.
For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
In several other places it is written that God forgives those who forgive others but God does not forgive those who do not forgive others. When we stand in judgement of other people and condemn them for what they have done, we risk falling under the the same judgement if we make the same mistake.
In this place of the Gospel, some Jewish religious leaders (people who should have known better) have looked at Jesus (the embodiment of all that is good) and judged him to be evil. They have given themselves no way out. There only chance is to fundamentally alter their view of Jesus.
I could look at the beggar down the street, or the person who decides to take their own life, or the person who decides to get an abortion, and I could judge them and condemn them in my heart and maybe I can escape God's condemnation if I never have to beg for a living and I never feel like taking my own life and I never wish one of my own children hadn't been born. Perhaps God would spare me those things.
But if I condemn all that is good... where can I go to escape God's judgement.
As Our Lord said, 'Judge not according to the appearance, but judge just judgment' (John 7:24).
