The Bible says Jesus is the «rock». That does not mean He is a stone. The scripture also says Jesus is the «gate», but still not a physical door at any entrance. When the Messiah spoke about people «living in darkness», it was not their failure to collect fire wood he was trying to explain. When Jesus says he is the bread that came down from Heaven, He did not ask us to replace the bakers products with his physical body.
When He said that we have to eat His «flesh», He did not promote some strange kind of cannibalism. He underlined that we were going to share the bread at the Last Supper, in remembrance of Him. He is the Word, and He obviously meant we were going to have suppers together to share His teachings. The bread we share is the symbol of communion in the body of Christ, that are we, if we are a fellowship of Bible believers.
In the gospel of John we can see that the disciples misunderstood this message, just like the Roman Catholic priesthood.
John 6: 52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
John 6:63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.
The other outraged blasphemy in regards to the Eucharist is the teaching that the bread we share is a sacrifice to God the almighty. Since Jesus is told by Catholic priests to be physically present inside the bread, we actually join a sacrifice of the risen Lord.
The Catechism of The Roman Catholic Church says:
The sacrifice of Christ and the sacrifice of the Eucharist are one single sacrifice: “The victim is one and the same: the same now offers through the ministry of priests, who then offered himself on the cross; only the manner of offering is different.” “And since in this divine sacrifice which is celebrated in the Mass, the same Christ who offered himself once in a bloody manner on the altar of the cross is contained and is offered in an unbloody manner. this sacrifice is truly propitiatory.”
About this kind of Roman Catholic teaching, there is only one thing to be said: «If the victim on the alter is the same, than the butchers are also the same».
The Catholic Eucharistic ritual is a blunt contradiction of the Word of God, found in the Bible. And surely not the will of our Father in Heaven.
Hebrews 10:10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrew 10:11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
When the Roman Catholics takes the Eucharist, they accuses God of the Bible of being a liar. The «Jesus» they are told is in the bread is a false god. They eat an idol. And what they do is a sin, that will be punished if not repented for.
******Another Inquisition is already in the works from a harlot Roman Catholic Church. CMR
