I would never submit to the Roman church because I have a perfect high priest (Hebrews 2:18) ....who ever lives to make intercession for me (Hebrews 7:25). I have no need for another mediator for I have Christ.

It tells us in Ephesians chapter 1 that, “God has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church which is His body, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all.” Since God the Father established Christ as the head of all things in my church, and since no man can serve two masters, popes are of no benefit for me.

“I would never submit to the Roman church”

I said Catholic Church. The Roman Church is one Church, the leading Church within the Catholic Church.

“because I have a perfect high priest (Hebrews 2:18)”

Yet you do not fully honor or glorify Him as High Priest.

“....who ever lives to make intercession for me (Hebrews 7:25).”

Yet you do not fully honor or glorify Him as your intercessor.

“I have no need for another mediator for I have Christ.”

Yet Christ gave us the Church and the Holy Spirit and the scriptures. I guess you don’t need or want them either since you have Jesus, right?

“It tells us in Ephesians”

It? What is “It”?

“chapter 1 that, “God has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church which is His body, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all.” Since God the Father established Christ as the head of all things in my church, and since no man can serve two masters, popes are of no benefit for me.”

And yet you’re not in the Church. You’re merely in a johnny-come-lately sect established by a mere man.
