What is a Priest? Another Anglican View

What is a Priest? Another Anglican View

C. FitzSimons Allison

1.  PRIESTHOOD NOT SACERDOS

"Priest" is the English word for "presbyter" (elder), and the latter is the only legitimate connotation for "priest."

2.  TOO NARROW DOCTRINE OF VALIDITY

The second way in which ministry has been separated from its purpose is by a too narrow and simplistic doctrine of validity.

3.  PREOCCUPATION WITH CREDENTIALS

The third way in which the purpose of ministry has been frustrated is the tendency to be preoccupied with credentials alone.

4.  DENIGRATION OF DOCTRINE

The fourth way the ministry has been separated from its purpose ís the increasing disinclination of the Church to deal with doctrine.
