More Proof that I'm Really a Bishop

So I saw this article on exorcism in Rome which noted that while any priest can perform an exorcism, he needs permission from his bishop so to do.

I, on the other hand, am the Lutheran Bishop of Lahoma. I do my own exorcisms by virtue of my office, without needing permission from anyone.

Gentlemen - if you are a Lutheran Parish Pastor, you are a bishop. Own it.

Ok, I'll bite. Are you talking about actual exorcisms, or saving people from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light with Christ?

Rev. Eric J Brown said...

Yes. Either. Both are tied together, because both are tied to the Word.

Now, does this mean I'm casting out demons right and left. . . eh, no. But if something weird happens to my parishoners, I'm the one who gets to handle it -- and I don't get permission from above so to do.
