1) Those who deny the priesthood and the evidence they present.
2) What does spiritual priesthood and universal priesthood mean?
3) The attempt to seize the priesthood, was an ancient rebellion, which was swiftly crushed by the Lord.
4) Is there only one priest?
Those who object to priesthood tend to take one of two conflicting basis;
First basis for objection
Christ is the only priest
That Priesthood is limited to the blessed Person of Christ, and there is no priesthood for any other human.
Second basis for objection we are all priests
All believers, without exceptions, are priests, as we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. All are equal and no one has any privilege above others, i.e. all share the same level of responsibility and the same honour.
