Acts 19:15 GGranny.
And I must say, and thank you for your wonderful response, I have spent a bit of my life on studying the Scriptures (BTW, it is not a simple thing, though simplicity does reign in doing so).
IIRC, it was not a women, neccessarily, who was casting out spirits per se, that is (Mark 9:40) whomever does not toe the line is not neccessarily a non Christian
As for access to this Authority, Paul said it well
Romans 10:9 sweetie!
Thanks for your response will check out the scriptures you stated....have a great weekend....GG
