Alan-It's not about the bread and wine physically becoming Jesus' body & blood.



It is if Jesus said so " This Bread is my Flesh"(jhn 6:51) "My Flesh is real food and My blood is real drink"(6:53)
---Ruben on 12/10/07


The Baptist church I have attended for 20 years has communion once a month but I never participate because I refuse to drink blood, even metaphorically. See Acts 15.20 and 29.
---InimicusStultitiae on 12/9/07


.ruben, You are confusing the act of Christ and his Apostles physically celebrating their last supper together with Christ physically being crucified.
---Eloy on 12/9/07


.ruben, you are unregenerate, and you will say and believe whatever you desire.
---Eloy on 12/7/07


"Did he or not give up his blood for us?"
Yes Ruben, He did. And then before he died, He said "It is finished"
He told us to remember Him when we ate and drank (and it does not have to be consecrated bread and wine)
It's not about the bread and wine physically becoming Jesus' body & blood.

Eloy-uben, Jesus said to partake IN REMEMBRANCE of him. that is just an foolish lie. And it is vain for any person to refute Jesus' words of truth, and then to substitute the truth with their own falsehood.



Then that is what you are doing..Before Jesus said "In remembrance" he said "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins". Did he or not give up his blood for us?
---Ruben on 12/7/07


ruben, Jesus said to partake IN REMEMBRANCE of him. Now if you believe you are actually eating and drinking Jesus during your ceremony, then you are not partaking IN REMEMBRANCE of him. And my God whom presently is sitting on his most high throne has not and does not transform himself into pieces of bread and glasses of wine, that is just an foolish lie. And it is vain for any person to refute Jesus' words of truth, and then to substitute the truth with their own falsehood.
---Eloy on 12/7/07


According to St. Paul, one way of unworthy reception is NOT recognizing ("discerning") it is truly the Lord's Body and Blood.

That's what the Word of God says on the subject.

Worship Your Pope. I'll worship the True Christ who reigns in Heaven not in a "Golden Cup of Abomination"

Your Tradition.
---TS on 4/16/07


TS::"Let no MAN decieve you"2Thess2:3Jesus not in Cup dispellled by Jn6:v64your interpretation is your own.He the LORD is & can be any & everywhere in what ever form HE choses Its we who have to believe & Satan the one who opposes His word Do YOU too?Jn6.52-58
---Emcee on 4/16/07




TS-Jesus in Heaven; not in a Cup.


But his Blood is Matthew 26:27-28 "Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood "
---Ruben on 4/16/07


Taking Communion unworthily means not understanding what you are doing by taking it. Our non denominational Christian Church takes it each time we meet. Remembering His sacrifice in taking Communion. Although I'm not a practicing Catholic I grew up in that faith and they have the children understand what Communion signifies before they partake of it. I was truly filled with the Holy Spirit when I took my First Communion and taking Communion is still very emotional for me. It's strictly a spiritual thing.
---marya3575 on 4/16/07


TS, Jesus can be where ever He wants to be. He also stated that where ever two or more were gathered in His Name, He is present.

And, Christians have been partaking in the flesh and blood of our Lord from the beginning, it is only since the Reformation that some have come to question this doctrine.
---lorra8574 on 4/16/07


Jesus in Heaven; not in a Cup.

2Th2:2-4 "be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled,.. nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
---TS on 4/16/07


Eloy-
.ruben, Jesus explains to those like you whom do not understand: "The Spirit whom makes being alive, the flesh profits not nothing: THE WORDS WHICH I TALK TO YOU, ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE, STANDS." John 6:36.


First you have to tell me if the words "This is my body" is symbolic yes or no? Second Jesus tells us to eat his flesh than he tells us it profit nothing, is that what you are saying? Third do we have to eat his flesh to have eternal life?
---Ruben on 4/14/07


Eloy-Jesus explains to those like you whom do not understand: THE WORDS WHICH I TALK TO YOU, ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE, STANDS." John 6:36.

No Eloy he ask those whom like you seen offended "Does this offend you?" Like them you also "walk with him no more." Remember Jesus said " My words are SPIRIT and LIFE"." Unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and drink his Blood, (You have no Life in you)"
---Ruben on 4/14/07

TS, if you had uttered those words I might have assumed that you were nuts; however, twelve baskets of bread and fish were gathered up after Jesus blessed and distributed two fish and five loaves among five thousand men and their families. If two fish and five loaves can feed such a multitude, then yes such a man can hold Himself in His own hands if He wills it. But even if He was only providing an example at that moment, the fact remains that He did die as our Paschal sacrifice.
---lorra8574 on 4/12/07


.ruben, Jesus said, "This is my body which is given for you: this do IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME." Luke 22:19. Jesus explains to those like you whom do not understand: "The Spirit whom makes being alive, the flesh profits not nothing: THE WORDS WHICH I TALK TO YOU, ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE, STANDS." John 6:36.
---Eloy on 4/12/07


If they were just symbols how could we become one with him by partaking?
---john on 4/13/07


TS-Ruben: He was standing right there when He said the wine is His Blood and the Bread His body!!! He was speaking symbolicly...


In Matthew 26:26 "Take and eat; This is my body." Which words are symbolic?
---Ruben on 4/12/07

Eloy-.ruben, "this is my flesh and blood", the disciples did not understand (see: John 6:60). And so he explained to them that he was speaking spiritually which was symbolic, all this that he had said was symbolic.


So in John6:51 "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world." He did not give himself to the world according to your beliefs...
---Ruben on 4/12/07


Ruben: He was standing right there when He said the wine is His Blood and the Bread His body!!! He was speaking symbolicly...and yet in her "Golden Cup of Abomination" the Roman Priest claims the power to force Christ into that perverted bowl. Blasphemy.

"And he would speak great words and Blasphemy against the Most Hight."
---TS on 4/12/07


Emcee: There is no 51st Chapter in John. And no bunnies either.
---TS on 4/12/07


TS::If you can dispute JN.51-58Explain & prove the meaning of those words then yes you got the easter Bunnies not mentioned by me.I try not to slur .you all may try to rile us but that is the enemy's trait.Jesus's way was LOVE.

.ruben, after Jesus said these things, that "this is my flesh and blood", the disciples did not understand (see: John 6:60). And so he explained to them that he was speaking spiritually which was symbolic, and not literally which they misunderstood to be physically or carnalic (see: John 6:63).

ts-Emcee: Jesus said "Do this in Rememberance of Me." The emblems of bread and wine are symbolic and point to the real Christ in Heaven.


He also said "This is my Body""This is my Blood" and "This bread is my Flesh which I will give to the world" was this symbolic?
---Ruben on 4/11/07


Emcee: What I say you dont believe because Christ said it...and Rome serves in place of christ. Seems pretty straight-forward.

Bunnies and Eggs in place of Bread and Wine. I get it. Thanks.

TS::I believe,what you say, does not fit the bill; you will have to change your thinking view, Because Jesus's word will not Change.Jn.6:51-58.symbolic, remembrance, could be, maybe,If you have a disagreement, The creator is your originator of this statement.

Communion is the joining and strengthening of our bodies by the spirit of God. I hope each of you have some form of this every Sunday, not just Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, and Christmas. In the Friends church we celebrate the communion of Christ and his church every time we worship. (we may not do this in the same manner as other churches but even without the elements Christ is present and working in our lives.) I would hope that each of you celebrate life with Christ every meal that you Eat.

---TS on 4/11/07


I have to agree with Jack.The generosity by which Jesus gives us His body & blood is to show that we are united in Him; so it follows that you must believe it is Jesus otherwise, it is a sham,a has no potential value.There is NO imitation either, you believe with your whole Heart & soul that this wonderful generous God gives of himself,so as to be LIKE Him in HIS church by HIS ordained Ministers."THIS IS MY BODY"
no duplicates or imitations.People have to be like stone not to understand.

Mary.If you had a deep sin and went and took the Lord's supper and accepted the fact that the blood of Jesus washes your sins away, wouldn't the communion be exactly what you need? Doesn't every sinner need the blood of Christ?
---john on 4/9/07


Hi; I could be wrong here, but my opinion of "taking it unworthily" could be like when you're struggling with a deep sin you're not ready to give up yet. When I struggled with the issue of adultery (in my mind anyway), I wouldn't take communion--I respect God too much to do it when I'm struggling like that.
---Mary on 4/9/07


Yes I took Communion. In our church it is alternately one Sunday morning then the next Sunday evening so that different people don't miss out if they cannot come to both services. The bread and wine are symbolic of (not actually) Christ's body and blood. Only those who are saved should accept Communion and only if they are walking in God's ways and not bearing grudges. Anyone else taking it is doing so 'unworthily'.
---m.p.a. on 4/9/07


It was done during Passover last monday evening at our service, we donot celebrate Easter,since Jesus did not tell us to celebrate a pagan holiday, but as far as remembering him with the observance of communion it should be done yearly, people do not observe/celebrate their weddinbg aniversary weekly or monthly do they?No, only yearly.

PART ONE:
It is a mistake to take verses 23-29 out of their context and expect to be able to understand what is being said.

To understand what Paul means, simply read the chapters 11 and 12. Paul's retelling of the last supper is an illustration in his message about . "not discerning the Lord's body" has a very specific meaning in that context.
---BRUCE5656 on 4/9/07


PART TWO
They came together for their "Love feast" and yet were demonstrating a gross disrespect for each other. Paul calls them hypocritical and tells them that the Lord's supper is the ultimate symbol of unity and unity is what they did not have. So participating "unworthily" was to not "discern" - understanding the nature of - the Lord's body. (see 10:16-17) Or more to the point, partake hypocritically - while mistreating/discounting the value of others in the body.
---BRUCE5656 on 4/9/07


My church didn't have communion. We had a sunrise service at 6:00 a.m. The only time we have communion is if we are led to do so. The juice represents the Lords blood and the bread represents the Lords body. We don't use wine but grape juice. An unsaved person can't partake in the communion, because they don't understand this with their carnal minds.
---Rebecca_D on 4/9/07


We do it every Week. Both the bread and wine. Not just the bread. Everyone is free to take it as they see it. Some see it as the body and blood and some it as the elements. We allow people to make up their own mind. Unworthy is exactly what it says. "not discerning His body"
