arguing church and priests in a thread about God?


i can't remember what story it is but there's this amazing story about God telling a guy to marry a prostitute, have children with her, set up house and then told him to divorce her and then after a few years take her back, it was a good example of how God perceived the Israelites reliance on priests of any faith...particularly the pagan faiths around at that time.  However there's another old testament book about how unhappy He is concerning people placing more faith in what priests say than what He expects.  It generally seems neither Him or His Son are fond of the priesthood and use some harsh examples and terminology when discussing it.
"The world that God made is inherently comprised of relationships, symmetries, analogia, anagogy, poetic wisdom. Thus is the language of symbolism."

You're right, God shouldn't be associated with priests and the Church too much. :focus:

Still, its undoubtedly unavoidable since the church claims to do god's will on earth. :wink:
