Erasmus has some questions for Islam

Why did Abraham give tithes to Melchizedek in recognition of his priesthood?
A tithe is an obligation, not a freewill choice to give thanks.
The biblical Messiah is an everlasting priest of the same kind as Melchizedek.
“The Lord said to my Lord, thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek”
The Islamic Messiah is not.
Why does the institution of the priesthood vanish in Islam?
Because Mohammed is the new mediator?

    notice how these missionaries make abraham ritualistic to the core ? in the story , abraham willingly wanted to do the WILL of god by BURNING his child and this must go beyond your words “tithe is an obligation”
    he was going to burn his child because he was obligated or because he wanted to do the will of god ?
    did he see RITUAL in the command of god? and what we see is that abraham was not obligated because “god WILL provide”
    abraham got rewarded for not being a RELUCTANT coward like jesus krist who faulted peoples faith but when it came to his time, he start BEGGING god to SAVE him.

    abraham must have seen BEYOND ritual when he said “god WILL provide”

    if abraham was the ritualistic pagan christian you paint him to be, he wouldn’t have gone of to a mountain , he would have done the sacrifice near places where animals were easily accessible.

    in his conscious, the man did not think, “hey maybe if my son is saved, i may need to KILL an animal instead”

    “or i’ll KILL my son and AN ANIMAL because i am a RITUALISTIC pagan christian ”

    you ruin abrahams story in genesis by injecting your pagan religion into it. i am sure abraham was thinking beyond “tithe” when he DELIBERATELY did not TAKE an animal ALONG with his son.

    don’t tell me about mediator and idolatry next time. it is you who worships the SACRIFICED thing as god
    it is you worship says “fully man and fully god” = 1 person, so you worship SACRIFICED 1 person and the human part is mediator to the SAME person.

    where do ANIMAL sacrifices point to a messiah who will be worshiped as yhwh . this “add-on” where did it come from ?

    quote:

    The Olah is a burnt-offering, i.e., it is placed on the altar and completely consumed by the fire. Before the Levitical law of sacrifices was established (see Leviticus 1-7), such offerings were entirely voluntary and had nothing to do with the remission of sins. So that your two examples of Olah offerings – by Noah & Abraham – are simply for gratitude and not for any particular sin. In Leviticus 1 you will see that an Olah offering can achieve atonement.
