Wonder if IRCC would risk its 501(c)(3) for the sake of its convictions.
Jim Lincoln wrote: The Mass - Miracle or Mendacity? "No Christian minister, as such, is ever called Hiereus, that is, sacrificing priest. All Christians, without distinction, whether ministers or people, have a metaphorical, not a literal, priesthood. The sacrifices which they offer are spiritual, not literal, their bodies and the fruit of their lips, praises continually (Heb 13:15). Christ alone had a proper and true sacrifice to offer. The law sacrifices were typical, not metaphorical, as the Christian's, nor proper and true, as Christ's. In Roman times the Mosaic restriction of the priesthood to Aaron's family was violated." excerpt of JFB Commentary for: Hebrews 5 4 And no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by God, even as Aaron was.---NASB A sacerdotal priesthood for Christians is an abomination.
