The Priesthood of the Few...Clergy.

Worst of all, it gets people looking in the wrong direction, to these supposed spiritual leaders, instead of to Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith.

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.1 Peter 2:5

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; 1 Peter 2:9

The priesthood of the few undermines God's plan for humanity through the community of the redeemed.
