This is where I hope that everyone, who has received communion, and reads this section, will come to understand. I hope it won't be too difficult to accept. It reminds me of a saying: 'The Truth Hurts.' - yes, it does, but through this suffering, we may come to a greater knowledge of Our God.
As we have seen throughout the centuries, the Roman Catholic Church declares,
that, at mass, the bread and wine is 'transformed' into the body and blood
of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, who cling to this doctrine, I ask you in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ:
FACT: See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. - Colossians 2:8
The Christ that we need is his word/teaching. - The good news of the Gospels.
FACT: That if you confess with your mouth. "Jesus is Lord." And believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the scriptures says, Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame. For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile. - The same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him.For everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved. - Romans 10:9-13
But we are made to believe the bread and wine made by man has been actually 'transformed' into the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, can you not see that this is an insult to Our Father in Heaven and to His Christ?
This bread and wine are also placed in cups and saucers of gold and other vessels decorated with items of luxury - WHICH OUR LORD DID NOT ASSOCIATE WITH AT ALL WHILE ON EARTH.
You are also made to knell down before it and say: 'This is is the body and blood of Christ.'
Don't you think we should break bread like the early christians, the purpose, being to remember Our Lord Jesus Christ and keep it always in our hearts?
I ask my catholic brothers and sisters, WHERE in the New Testament does Our Lord Jesus give any man permission to 'transform' bread and wine into his body and blood, and make people kneel before it?
Here is an excerpt from the Vatican II Council on communion, STILL IN FORCE TO THIS VERY DAY.
CANON 1, COUNCIL OF TRENT, 1563:
'If anyone shall deny that the body and blood , together with the soul and divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore entire Christ, are truly, really, and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist; and say he is only in it as a sign, or in figure - let him be accursed (DAMNED)."
RATIFIED VATICAN II COUNCIL, 1963
DON'T YOU SEE THIS DOCTRINE WORKS ON FEAR RATHER THAN LOVE?
FACT: For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
I have another question to those who firmly believe the bread and wine is the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ:
If it is trully the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus, WHY does the bread go stale and the wine go bad, after a couple of days in the tabernacle?
Isn't Our Lord Everliving? Have you ever considered, that if the bread, after being 'turned' into the body of Our Lord, is burned, won't it turn to ashes?
FACT: He feeds on ashes, a deluded heart misleads him; He cannot save himself, or say, "Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?" - Isaiah 44:20
FACT: But food does not bring us near God; we are not worse off if we eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block for the weak. For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you, who have this knowledge, eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldedned to eat what has been sacrified to idols? So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. Therefore if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so I will not cause him to fall. - 1 Corinthians 8:8-13
Please remember I am not condemning the gathering of my brothers and sisters in Christ who eat in rememberance of Our Lord, but to actually, kneel before it and claim it is Our Lord, is false according to the New Testament, upon which the Christain Church is based.
