Doesn't anyone find it weird about Communion host and wine...
That UNLESS one partakes in a RITUAL of consuming flesh and blood (host and wine, but mostly the host), that one is then refused to give confession and a great many other things?

Meanwhile, we are told that "Christ is risen" and so, it is this true Christ that is the one who will intercess for our sins of we ask him to forgive us.

So, taking the host always seemed... odd and cannibalistic to me and ritualistic as other darker religions that did similarly.

What says you?

It's always seemed like spiritual cannibalism to me, too.

under wandering stars I've grown,
by myself, but not alone...

Well I always say, it would be good to go away
But if things don't work out like we think
And there's nothing there to ease this aching
But if there's nothing there to make things change
If it's the same for you I'll just hang

Jesus used the word in the English translation "rememberance" as in "do this in rememberance of me". Jesus is INDEED risen and we are to partake of His Communion as a "memorial sacrifice" until He returns (Soon!), NOT as cannibalism but as a reminder of what He did for us.

If you pray and ask for discernment of what communion really is and stands for, He will honor your sincere request and give you wisdom and understanding. The church has been corrupted. Receive your instructions directly from our Living Savior! He loves you, He died for you and He left you His Holy Spirit for wisdom and discernment. Seek and you will find. Ask and it will be given to you...IN JESUS NAME.



Peace.

Yep. Same thoughts.

It always seemed creepy to me, since I first encountered this ritual as a kid.
Still does.
As you think.

Damn hypocrite vampires.

God loves everyone even the sinners, except the fags and muslims.

You can only come in the special club if you dump water on your baby and put money in this special hat.

Guys are ridiculous.

Breaking bread, at the table and last supper, and passing the cup around (the Holy Grail) would make sense, in terms of its symbolic gesture and his stating, "This is the last I will physically be with you, like this, so take this bread and wine as a physical gesture of this moment". But not for time and forever.

So when we take the host (and/or wine) are we supposed to always think of the last supper and the Jesus about to get nailed to the cross? Because I always think of him as being a live and offering life ever after in that belief.

That's what I always felt... and listening to everyone mumbling prayers at the same time felt like a large cult joining the same.

Didn't Christ tell us to "go into our private prayer closets" when praying to him? The instructions were pretty clear, with Matthew 6:

5And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward. 6But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

7And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

9So then, this is how you should pray:

‘Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be Your name,

10Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors;

13And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from the evil one.’a

14For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.

Just saying... I think the church and religion has caused more harm than good, but for the charitable people who believed in the body of Christ and in acting the same, with TRUE FAITH, who made all the difference.

The host used to be dosed, then everyone would drop and stare at the pretty stained glass windows.
They lost the recipe in the plague and it was rediscovered by Saint Albert Hoffman.

Re: Doesn't anyone find it weird about Communion host and wine...
The Lord's Supper is a time of remembrance and reflection. We remember what Christ did for us when he gave his life as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. We reflect on what he did for us through his life, death and resurrection. The Lord instructed us to keep the sacrament of the Lord's Supper, as a time of communion with him.

Mathew 26:29

1 Corinthians 11:24

1 Corinthians 11:28



The words " do this in remembrance of me"
Are pretty clear too....
