As I recall within the new testament. A person was exorcising demons out of people using Jesus' name. Apostles complain and Jesus said to relax.
Sums it up nicely. Anyways. The power that is behind a priest is studying the word of God and teachings. Minus the responablity of the church and
their liturgical worshipping. Do you believe that the power of a priest should be given to the laymen.
With enough self studying, research and knowledge. +faith. do you think this should be done and if so how? This obviously would place the church in a
disposition. Families wouldn't need to worship on sunday. No more tithing and the church would fall apart. Catholic church that is. As well as
Faith would be more of a matter of personal opinion rather than theological damnation within a social confound.
I see a win win with everyone IMO.
Theist: get to worship the way they want
Atheist: No more churches on every corner.
