The Sacramental/Organizational Paradigm
This paradigm combines the views of the Sacramental Paradigm and the Organizational Paradigm. The end result is an organization and priesthood which possesses a monopoly on the grace of God.
The authority paradigm teaches that there is no monopoly on the grace of God, except the fact that no one comes to the Father except through Jesus. To learn more about this aspect of the Authority Paradigm visit both the "What is The One Body?" webpage and the "All Christians Are Priests." webpage.
Two examples of this Paradigm are
The Roman Catholic Denomination
The Mormon Denomination (aka The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints)
