A New 'Old' Theology

Why is it, as Christians, we seek out everyones teaching on scripture except the Holy Spirit's? I have been so guilty of this myself in the past. We no longer need a 'high priest' to reach the Father. Jesus is our high priest and we can go straight to His Word and He will teach us.

Jennifer Epstein has written a timely and much needed article about a new "old" theology here.

Hebrews 4:14-16
14Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
