He denied that priests had any power that laymen did not have. So, whereas Lutheran pastors can "trace" their line of ordination back to the Apostles the same as any Catholic priest (HISTORICALLY, there is no difference whatsoever), this is moot from the Lutheran perspective vis-a-vis the Real Presence of Jesus in His Eucharist.

These were mainly located in the Upper Serangoon and Hougang areas where the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is located in what was traditionally a Teochew speaking heartland.
The words are what they are and the Protestant reformers had no right to oppose all antiquity and create the "symbolic" belief for the Eucharist, when this is clearly not stated in Scripture. First, rather than abandoning the certainties of the past for a world where, as Walter Lippmann lamented, "whirl was king" (8), Machen rejected the abstractions of liberal Protestantism in order to return to the particular- ities of Presbyterian orthodoxy.
In another letter he said, "I can scarce believe myself awake, or the thing real, when I think of a prince, in such an age as we live in, converted to such a degree of zeal and piety as not to regard anything in the world in comparison of God Almighty's glory, the salvation of his own soul, and the conversion of our poor kingdom."

These, "to strengthen themselves by alliances for the promulgation of the Gospel", banded together within the limits of the German Empire and made common cause against the emperor.
Nor could Scotland regard her own rights as secure so long as those of England were in question. Nor would the Nurembergers be slow to display to the eyes of their visitors the marvels of their art and the products of their enterprise, in both of which they were at that time unequalled on this side of the Alps. Catholics found it difficult to find an Irish League football club to follow, until population movement brought it to Cliftonville in the late 1970s.
He was apprehended at the instance of the Bishop of Passau, and condemned for maintaining that man is justified by faith alone; that there are but two Sacraments, baptism and the Lord's Supper; that the mass is not a sacrifice, and avails not for the quick and the dead; and that Christ alone hath made satisfaction for us.
