    Seems like a baseless claim.

    It's 100% true. But everyone knows the highest power levels are with the Orthodox chants

    Ps.5:8-12. Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
    make thy way straight before my face.

    For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
    their inward part is very wickedness;
    their throat is an open sepulchre;
    they flatter with their tongue.
    Destroy thou them, O God;
    let them fall by their own counsels;
    cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions;
    for they have rebelled against thee.

    But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:
    let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:
    let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
    For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous;
    with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

    Scary for demons to hear? Yep! :yes:

    Compare this with Protestant worship song:

    Lead me Lord
    Lead me by the hand and help me face the rising sun
    Comfort me through all the pain that life may bring
    There's no other hope that I can lean upon
    Lead me Lord
    Lead me all my life

    Another four verses in a similar vein. +

    You are my light
    You're the lamp upon my feet
    All the time my Lord I need You there
    (You are my light)
    (I just cannot live alone)
    Let me stay by Your guiding love
    All through my life
    All through my days
    So Lead me Oh Lord
    Lead me Lord

    (Backing electric piano, guitar, drums etc.)

    Scary for demons? No! :no:

    I see no power in chants, only power in the name of Jesus, and authority when acting in Jesus' name.

    Jesus did not drive out demons with chants or hymns. He told them to leave, and they left. He is our example.

    Jesus told His followers to do the same. Read Luke 9, Luke 10, Mark 16, Acts 8, and Acts 16.
    Act 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
    Act 16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
    Act 16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

    The specific issue with chant, is that the music serves the words (liturgy). In the case of many hymns, songs, and spiritual pieces, the words have been fashioned to serve (fit) the music.

    Thanks for drawing out that distinction, as it is not something I was ever made aware of in my early RC days. I might add that I fully agree with Tiffy's point about the weak nature of much of the modern singing.
