Corruption In The Catholic Church Part 4 Communion
CORRUPTION IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH PART 4 COMMUNION
Catholics believe in the doctrine of Transubstantiation or simply put that the bread and wine miraculously take on the form of Christ’s body and blood at the time of the communion. I will demonstrate that this is a horrible mistake and not at all what Christ intended. The Bible does not contradict itself nor does God. We must go back to the Old Testament to see what God said about blood and its uses.
“And whatsoever man there is of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you , that eateth any manner of blood: I will even set my face against that sould that eateth blood and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood.; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is blood that makes an atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:10-11
This thought is also expessed in Deut 12:16,23 and Deut 15:23 as well as Exopdus 12:13
Here is a verse that Catholics mistranslate:
” Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily I say unto you, Except you eat the flsh of the Son of mank and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoso eatesth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateh my flesh and drinketh my blood, dweeleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hasth sent me, and I live by the Father, so he that eateth me even he shall live by me. This is the bread which came down from heaven; not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead; he that eateth of this bread shall live forevever”. John 6: 53-58
So how do we reconcile the command of Christ to eat his flesh and drink his blood and the command not to eat blood from the OT? It is obvious that this was a metaphor. The Apostles did not literally eat his flesh and drink his blood after Christ died. They understood what Christ meant. It was not meant literally. The catholics choose to interpret this passage literally. Why do they not choose to interpret Jesus calling us sheep literally where we would walk around going Baah Baah? Even if they believe it literally, they explain why Christ is wrong because they teach that you can lose your salvation minute by minute depending on whether or not you die in an unconfessed state of mortal sin. In other words your salvation is a crap shoot. Jesus said that if you partook of his flesh and blood you would have everlasting life.
In other words the catholics believe in holy cannibalism to get grace in them. The principle of cannibalism is that if you eat of your enemy, you gain his strength and wisdom and thus become wiser and stronger. Clearly this is not what Christ meant. When Christ appeared to his apostles after arising from the dead Christ ate with them but did not ask them to eat of his flesh and blood. To believe this contradicts yet other scriptures;
“Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead, dieth no more, death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once. “Romans 6:9-10
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just and the unjust, that he might bring us to him, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit. I Peter 3:18
To drink Christs blood and eat his flesh we have to crucify him yet again and again. It was a one time sacrifice. Christ said to do this in remembrance of me. It was strictly a commemorative feast. The catholics don’t even follow consistently in their beliefs because they don’t drink the wine, only the priest drinks the wine which contradicts the scripture yet again. These are important doctrinal issues and not to be taken lightly and just blown off. Stay tuned to more doctrinal issues from the bible. Blessings on you and yours John Wilder
