Priest, Prophet, King

October 28, 2004 — 1 Comment

Hey Everybody,
I’m going to post this log on this site and www.catspaw007.blogspot.com since it’s actually for school. I know Daniel is probably going to be commenting soon, so I want to hear from you. Also give the link to Evan or anybody else for that matter.
I had to write an essay on Christ as our priest, prophet, and king; this is the first of the three paragraphs that will soon make up the essay as a whole.

Why Do I Need A Priest?

Our sin has separated us from God, who is totally perfect and holy. We are unworthy to be with God, so we must have someone who is worthy to be with God to let us communicate to God through this perfect person.

God’s system of priests offering sacrifices form sin in the Old Testament is the symbolic picture of the innocent death of Christ on the cross for all mankind’s sin. No amount of animal sacrifice could actually remove sin (Hosea 6:6, Hebrews 10:1-6). Since animals have no moral value to make up for moral sin, priests were just as unworthy in God’s presence as the most sinful soul on the earth. They had no place being the mediator between us and God. But Jesus was the perfect priest who sacrificed His life for all human sin once and for all(Hebrews 9:24-28).

BTW, I will be posting my stats for my soccer team this week, so you may be interested in seeing that. Also, I will be having a discussion on…hmm, I’ll just leave you in suspense…on my other site writtent above. Also PLEASE look at my Freedom Comics website. I’m posting a whole lot of new bits of my art that you can look at and BUY(safely).

    [...] My first post dealing with theology was Priest, Prophet, King. It was a school project, but I had worked hard on it. Then, right after that, I began taking on the culture as a 14-year-old kid. [...]
