I Would suggest you read the new testament, paying particular attention to the statement made by Christ (WHOM IS NOT LUCIFER - how can a house divided
stand) that 'this is my body', 'this is my blood', 'do this in memory of me' and then if your accusation against the Catholics is such and that no
other church regards it in this fashion then are they by your argument not more Christian, I actually disagree as it is a pan Christian belief and
those whom partake of the sacrament (not those whom pop it in there mouth but those whom partake) actually by taking the body of Christ into
themselves offer there own Body as a living sacrifice to the Lord and whom take his Blood offer there own LIFE and so are one in Christ, this is what
binds Christians together (not all that go to church are Christians) and in doing so they become one with him and one another.
If you do not understand now then you never will.
See, you have an explanation of communion. How can you judge Freemasons without knowing the context and lesson which we teach?
I was born and raised a Catholic, went to a Catholic School, was an alter boy, a Minister of the Eucharist, ran a youth group as a young adult, and
was, at one stage in my life (before I met my wife) going to be a Selesian Brother.
Later on in life, when I started my comparative religious studies, I started to question several of their core dogmas, including transubstantiation,
and I could no longer, in good faith, remain in the Catholic church.
But believe me when I say I understand communion and the Eucharist, as a large part of my life was dedicated to Catholic ministry (and then other
Christian ministry) in one form or another.
And in my opinion, Catholics are more Christian than many other 'Christian' churches. I just feel that they (as well as the other Christian churches)
have gotten some things wrong.
