In my name = Aramaic Idiom? Matthew 18:5
sean Wrote:Most of the bible can be taken literally. According to acts 4-12, there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. There is power in the name of Jesus. Also Jesus said that heaven and earth would pass away, but his words will not pass away. To ignore the words of God, is extremely dangerous.

Sean, it seems as if we should shiver and fear Jesus? I don't understand that people felt like that when they lived with him on earth so the same applies to our heavenly Father. He loves you, and is not turning his face to destroy you if you understand something wrong.

To comment on Acts 4:12. Yes. Agree.

But this does not mean that praying 'in name of' Jesus, (I believe this) means adding a magical formula after the prayer: "In name of Jesus, Amen!".
Does God listen to such 'magical words' or does God see your heart?

Besides, -nowhere- in the NT, we see that if someone prays, adds the words 'in Jesus name, Amen!'...
