Take another look, Al. The apostles and the 70 disciples were “authorized” by Jesus. It’s explicit: he sent them out with authority under His name. When some of His disciples asked why they were unsuccessful with some cases of demonic possession, he instructed them how to do it the next time.
Looks like authorized exorcists to me.
Mohler can’t see the nose on his face.
Funny how all that stuff is in the Bible but so many miss it because it doesn’t fit with what they already believe.
in Luke 9:49-50
Master, said John, we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.
Do not stop him, Jesus said, for whoever is not against you is for you.
