I assume you believe that the New Testament is an elevation of Christian principles of faith...starting with the original text of salvation, the Old Testament. The translation/correlation from the priesthood in the Old to the priesthood in the New is simply following God's full plan of salvation. The New Testament fulfills, and further clarifies Old Testament teachings.

That being said, the books of Leviticus, Numbers, Exodus all have preeminent examples of the people of God going to the priest for forgiveness of sins. This going to the priest is carried over from the original followers of God, the Jews, because God instructed them to. (..see Aaron etc ... ) Every verse relayed to you so far from the New Testament is supported as an edifying example and elevation of an Old Testament verse.

I am supplying an excellent example of such Old and New Testament information that, if you are truly serious about the question you have posed, you will see the verification of the Catholic Church continuing to follow the faith of their Church and all in the name of explicit biblical reading/teaching. The big picture is harder to see if you don't have all the information which is why the Old Testament and its knowledge is invaluable, to initiate doctrine and allow the New Testament to flourish in expansion and fulfilment from the Old.

I haven't been around fir a LONG WHILE. (Sort) of glad i stumbled on this thread. It's a great examole of an absolutely disingenuous post and moreover, a great examole of a person - dog - whi has no interest in listenung or thinking. Like many other 'drive bys' (hopefully you won't be one) who have posted here in the past. After reading the entire thread though, the one question i have is why do you believe anything in the Bible? Why not choose 'Wuthering Heights' or 'to kill a mockingbird', perhaps the quaran, or 'art of war'? That seems like a proposterous and undefensible position.

Is this Biblical?


The word "covenant" appears over three hundred times in the Bible, both OT and NT, therefore, I think it is important that we come to understand the principles of a covenant and how it works. Covenant is certainly biblical.

Let me turn this around. How do YOU understand our covenant with God and how it works?

John 20,21-23:

21* [Jesus] said to them again,l “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
22* And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,m “Receive the holy Spirit.
23 "Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

Seems pretty clear to me.

No anger, I am dumbfounded that a person could claim many years of Catholic instruction, then also claim Protestant instruction, and not be aware of the Covenants of God.


Actually, I have found the opposite to be true. Covenant theology is probably the best kept secret in Christendom. Mention covenant to most people and you get that deer-in-the-headlights look.
