I'm a programmer by day and a genealogist by night, but mostly I'm a husband and father. I'm also a Mormon.

comment How does intercession of saints and Exodus 20:3 not clash?
@PeterTurner: There's nothing in the Bible that says we should interpret Christ's petition to John as applicable to us (and I admit there's nothing that says we shouldn't). Anything regarding this is pure speculation.

I had no idea that the Roman Catholic Church performed any sacraments with the laying on of hands. Is ordination the only time it is used? That's what the wiki article seems to imply, but doesn't specifically state.

@Screamer: "Can anyone other than Christ intercede for us?" Perhaps you have stumbled upon a good question.

comment When did knowledge of Christ's sacrifice become necessary for salvation?
@Flimzy: Why would Christ say that Abraham was excited to see His day if Abraham didn't know about the sacrifice He was going to offer? That would mean Christ is saying that Abraham was excited to see Christ conquer the nations militarily, which He clearly didn't do and Christ knew He wasn't going to do that.

comment When did knowledge of Christ's sacrifice become necessary for salvation?
I think people are struggling with your question because of a false, hidden premise: that the requirements for salvation changed when Christ died. Knowledge of Christ's sacrifice has always been necessary for salvation. The requirements for salvation have never changed.
