"This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of  God  Most
High.  He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings
and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything.
First,  his  name  means "king of righteousness"; then also,
"king of Salem" means "king of  peace."  Without  father  or
mother,  without genealogy, without beginning of days or end
of life, like the Son of God he remains a  priest  forever."
(Hebrews 7:1-3).
Who is claiming all these? Paul, in the 19th book of the New
Testament! In our earlier discussion, we know  that  he  was
the  one  who created a god out of Jesus. He was the one who
bragged to be a Pharisee and acted like a hypocrite. Here he
is  creating  another god: Melchizedek. According to Paul he
has higher rank than Jesus. He is not only without a father,
he  is also without a mother. He was not born and he did not
die. However, he, like the Son  of  God,  remains  a  priest
Paul,  the  proven  hypocrite  (1. Corinthians 9:20-22), the
acknowledged  Pharisee  (The  Acts  23:6),  fool  and  blind
(Matthew  16:11-12;  23:13-33,  Luke  12:1-2)  had dedicated
himself to create gods besides the Lord of the universe.  He
is  not  satisfied  with  his other two gods (Jesus and Holy
Spirit), and he adds one more, even a bigger one. Thus,  he,
in  fact,  is the father of Quadrinity. However, this fourth
god is a hidden god. Clergy do not preach about him, and  do
not pray to him. They probably consider him to be a rival to
Jesus, since according to Paul,  he  has  higher  rank  over
Some  evangelists  try  to avoid the problem by interpreting
Paul's claim about Melchizedek. They want us to believe that
he  had  genealogy, but it was lost. However, a person needs
to be extremely gullible to swallow this bait with its  hook
and  thread.  Why  then  were  the  entire three chapters of
Hebrews  dedicated  to  praise  Melchizedek?   Because   his
genealogy was lost by absent-minded narrators?
1.  According to Hebrew 7:1-3, Melchizedek had no beginning
    and end of life, he had neither a father nor a mother,
    and he has higher rank over Jesus. Who is Melchizedek?
2.  Why don't you accept Melchizedek as the fourth
    "godhead"? Why do you preach Trinity, instead
    of Quadrinity?
3.  Psalm 110:4  has been translated in several different
    ways. Do you see any difference among the following
    translations? "... You are a priest forever, in the
    order of Melchizedek." or "... You are a priest forever
    after the rank of Melchizedek." or "... You are a priest
    forever with the rank of Melchizedek"? Which one is
    correct: "in the order", or "after the rank", or
    "with the rank"?
4.  How many priests are entitled to be "priest forever"
    like Jesus? Who are they?
