I’m not that familiar with the rite of exorcism, but I have been to healing Masses, and no special effects were used there. Just laying on of hands and praying for people to be healed through the power of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
"But there are also many other things which Jesus did; which, if they were written every one, the world itself, I think, would not be able to contain the books that should be written." John 21:25
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.
Agreed, that Jesus didn’t use holy water.
He’s the One who makes things and people holy so that they can be employed for good.
But can we also agree that you are not Jesus? So maybe you might need what He didn’t need? Namely, invoking Him? He authorized his disciples to cast out demons by prayer and fasting and invoking his name.
That’s what the exorcism rites do. Albert Mohler couldn’t be bothered to discover that. Otherwise he might have wasted his breath on something else.
I seem to remember Him using mud and spittle once, but I guess that doesn’t count.
He was a practicing Jew.
"The only thing involved in casting out demons from an individual was "the name of Jesus and the proclamation of the Gospel.......... I don't believe Jesus used rites, holy water, crosses, etc. either..."
But Paul did
Notice by aprons and cloth from Paul ordained by Christ. Paul blessed these items. Why not other items.
ACTS 19:11 "Now God worked Unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 So that Even Handkerchiefs or Aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them"
