Simple Truths: No atonement with Melchizedek

So the christian claim, the new testament claim, is that Jesus was a priest from the order of Melchizedek.

There is a significant problem with this claim:

The order of Melchizedek, if such an order exists, has no recorded or legal (legal according to God’s law) power to atone for sins.

Only priests biologically descended from Aaron had that power. And the new testament is clear that Jesus didn’t come from Aaron.

The word or title of priest, especially in Hebrew, doesn’t equate to having that power.

So the point of this is that Jesus had no power based on Torah law to use ANY sacrifice, especially the giving of his life, to atone for anyone’s sin.

I'm a gentile living in UK, a person who has chosen to take upon himself the responsibility God has given to all gentiles. God is the greatest aspect of my life and He has blessed me with a family. I used to be a christian, but I learnt the errors of my ways. I love music. I love to play it on the instruments I can play, I love to close my eyes and feel the groove of it. I wrote my songs when I was single and not so happy and since I've been married, I haven't written as much. I guess that shows how happy and blessed I am. What else is there?
