This is not an LDS perspective, but a Biblical one. Hebrews 5:6 states (quoting Psalm 110): You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek. Then in 7:15-16: 15 And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, 16 one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the ...

Christ's pattern of "receiving an ordination" into His own priesthood sources to the first priesthood with Moses and Aaron. And it was related to His baptism or washing. To be precise, however, the question is actually dealing with being the High Priest of an order. For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things ...

I'm not aware of anywhere in Scripture where it explicitly says something like "only men can be ordained" or "women can't be ordained". However, I am aware of a passage that may indirectly answer the question. In Alma 13, Alma is explaining the Priesthood and foreordination to the lawyer, Zeezrom. Alma 13:2 says: "And those priests were ordained after ...

Can. 1024 A baptized male alone receives sacred ordination validly. The Code of Canon Law makes it clear that only a male can be ordained validly. This is teaching of the Church going back centuries and most recently outlined by Pope John Paul II in Ordinatio Sacerdotalis The priesthood being only for men doesn't mean women have no role. Not all men are ...

What can Deacons do that a Priest woud never do? The short answer is nothing, at least liturgically speaking. Permanent deacons are permitted to be married and have a family, whereas priests are generally celibate. A few permanent deacons go on to the priesthood after the death of their spouse. However, permanent deacons are of great value to the Church. For ...

Does the parish priest have the authority to forbid communion in the mouth due to COVID pandemic? The short answer is no. But there is a caveat to my response, which I am sure will not go down smooth with some of those who are very traditional. A priest, of his own accord, can not refuse to give any faithful communion on the tongue and require that they ...

The question assumes the woman is just a 'copy and pasted' man, or interchangeable with man, whereas when God took woman out of man, He didn't intend for equality or sameness, because he made a physically and mentally different creature, designed to be compatible with, complete, and be completed by, the man. We are both created in the image of God - high, ...

Can a mentally ill person who takes medication regularly be a Catholic priest? The short answer is possibly. While Canon Law seems to indicate that it is not possible, it also allows for dispensations in this matter. Please remember that mental health issues come in a large variety of forms. Anxiety and depression are not the same thing as being insane. ...

First, a quick clarification. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a man is ordained to an office of the Priesthood (e.g., one is ordained to the office of a Deacon), the Priesthood itself is conferred to said man. (Family Guidebook: Priesthood Ordinances and Blessings) Anyway, to answer your question... We Don't Know 1) Jesus was Baptized,...

It was theorized that the mark on Cain was that of a black skin, however, Genesis 4:15 does not specify what the mark was. Moses 7:8 Mentions the people of Canaan, (contemporaries of Enoch) whose land was cursed with much heat and that a blackness came upon them, that they were despised of all men. Moses 7:22 specifies that the seed of Cain were black. ...
