Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, "You have faith & I have works." Show me your faith apart from your works, & I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe. - James 2:17-19
As far as priests go, do not Protestants have someone standing at the altar, leading the service and giving the communion? Yet no one decries him as an intercessor. The minister / preacher / priest doesn't diminish Jesus Christ's status as HIGH priest.
