I’m not taking the side of the RCC, but be very careful in how you approach this subject. Christ, after all, wasn’t a completely “normal” human and had authority that we don’t realize exists and likely never will this side of eternity.
We are told to rebuke demons in the name of Christ because it’s only through Him that we are given any authority at all. After all, He’s the vine and we’re the branch. Without Him, we’re nothing at all.
Other than that, I agree with what you said.
That isn't the understatement of the year. It's not even the biggest understatement of the entire history of the universe since Creation ... It's the understatement of Eternity.
Have you any idea who and what Jesus IS.
Jesus told us exactly who and what He IS:
"Before Abraham was, I AM."
Jesus Christ is Lord. Jesus Christ is God. He isn't a human person at all, He is a Divine Person. He had and has ALL authority.
Without Him, were nothing at all.
Duh. The leather seats, stereo, and A/C come with a car -- they're just accoutrements of a very nice, "tricked-out" car, in fact.
