Why would we need a priest (we will call that person a spiritual expert) to make a connection with God?
We need experts in our daily lives.
- If your car does not work, do you try to fix it yourself? Maybe if you are out of gas, or you need to put air in your tires. But will you replace your brakes or fix your transmission? No, you go to a mechanic who knows what to do.
- If you need surgery, will you do that for yourself? Let’s say that you know that you have to replace your knee joint. Can you replace it yourself? No.
- Can you teach yourself another language? Maybe you will learn by listening and learning all by yourself. Most of us need a teacher. I am learning Spanish. My teacher’s name is Anna Maria. He moved to the United states from Peru. She knows Spanish because that is her 1st language. She knows English because she learned it here, and is not a citizen. Because she lives in both worlds, she can teach me Spanish.
If you then need a mechanic for your car, a doctor for your body and a teacher for your education – you also need a priest if you want to know God. What is more difficult to know and understand, an engine, a knee, a language or the Almighty?
