Hebrews 7:16 says (at least in my bible)...."who has become such not on the basis of a law of physical requirement, but according to the power of indestructible life."
Still can't see how this is proof that Jesus was ordained into the priesthood of Melchizedek. Can you explain your position here?
Try reading the sentence in front of it.. that might help.. :-P
My Bible reads: "one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry, but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life.
As for explaining my position, my position is merely to share w/ you what my convictions concerning the Bible are. I have no desire nor intent to "convert" you to my beliefs or to try to convince you of the truth of what I say.. You're a free human being, and you have the right to believe whatever you choose to believe. God gave you the gift of reason for a ... reason (no pun intended!)
