There are two priesthoods in Scripture, the Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20541213
priesthood of believers and a ministerial priesthood.
Seee...like the Old Testament, the New Covenant ministerial
priesthood offers the "continual sacrifice." You need a priest to offer sacrifice, did you forget?
And one other, there is no ordained priesthood in Protestantism. One of their rejections. So sad.
Hang on, maybe next year? The moments when God shows the entire world personally, you non-Catholics will understand.
Remember, the NDE like life review for the entire world.
Our Lord's prayer to the Father that we all believe the same
is going to be fulfilled, less those who pridefully say no.
Your knowledge of Scripture is very poor, which means you are not being fed the Bread of Life, His WORD in SPIRIT and in truth. You are missing it: what was PHYSICAL in the OT is now SPIRITUAL under the New Covenant. No more institution of priesthood and it is not in the NT at all! Most of these institution are not teaching this properly. The "continual sacrifice" is OURSELVES DAILY as He commanded:
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Romans 12:1 I beg you therefore, my brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God by a logical service
. 2And do not imitate this world, but be transformed by the renovation of your minds, and you shall distinguish what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 6:13 Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Hebrews 13:15 And through him let us offer sacrifices of praise always to God
, which is the fruit of the lips giving thanks to his name.
Face the fact: you do not know God, Jesus or the Connection to the Father (the Holy Spirit, who is alive and ACTIVE in my life). All you know is your institution and your emotional and mental state controlled by it. You choose to know nothing; I pity you.
