CANON I.- If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law were not all instituted by Jesus Christ, our Lord; or that they are more, or less, than seven, to wit, Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Order, and Matrimony; or even that any one of these seven is not truly and properly a sacrament; let him be anathema.
CANON IV.- If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification; -though all (the sacraments) are not necessary for every individual; let him be anathema.

You are simply wrong, you know the one's that have the most to gain from the anti Paul rhetoric are the Muhammadan's and they have pushed that agenda for a while now.
All I will say to you is Road to Damascus and the scales falling from his eye's.
He was the last person whom would have come to Christ because he persecuted the Christian's, he was chosen by Christ whom saw he was misguided and blind so blinded him with his own light then gave his sight back once he had learned to see turning his enemy into his friend, his persecutor into his champion.
You want darkness then carry on spreading darkness to other's and those shadow's around you will surely get thicker and darker, I would suggest you turn away from self righteous lies and find the truth.
What I have seen and what I was taught through RCIA some years back when I first decided to join the Church.... One is to approach the priest, bow slightly, cup both hands and the priest places the wafer in the parishioner's hand. Often people (including me) make the sign of the cross shortly after and as I walk back to my seat.
