Hey bro,...ease up
I'm just stating the facts. did you even read my posts ?
If you would have taken the time to, you would have realized your question was already answered.
Acts 19:15 The evil spirit answered, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you?"
Somehow a group of these itinerant Jewish exorcists--the seven sons of a Jewish high priest, Sceva--had heard Paul preaching and speaking the name of Jesus. From other texts, we know that Paul often spoke of Jesus as the "Son of the Most High," a name that would obviously appealed to such exorcists for use in various spells and incantations. And now here we find the seven sons of Sceva using the name of Jesus during exorcisms. But using our Lord's name backfired on them, for when the "evil spirit," heard these men using the name of Jesus, "he answered them, `Jesus I know and Paul I know about, but who are you?'" Certainly this was not what the would-be exorcists wanted to hear! It also did not help matters when the man who was possessed by the demon somehow over-powered all seven of these men, beating them to the point that their clothes were stripped from them and they were bleeding.
Not only is this a biblical account but i have seen demons myself attack those who simply try to use Jesus name to try to rid themselves of demonic attack.
It happened at the last place of employment actually.
A spiritist attempted to do so and her whole world turned upside down in a matter of days !
The fact isn't whether we " Christians think we are the only true religion."
In the book of Hebrews, God says he holds his word above his name !
In Romans it says there is no other name under heaven by which men can be saved !
and in Philippians it says God has givin Jesus a name which is higher than any other name.
and at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord Of All !
I'm just tellin ya what the book says and the results of giving your life to Christ are, as well as the authority you have and freedom you have from demonic oppression.
Unless you've got some sincere questions and really want to learn a few things here,
I Got to go bro....
Choice is yours
