John 6:51-57: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.”••••• In these verses we see a resemblance between Jews and most modern-day Protestants, because both question and deny the Body and Blood of Christ, in the form of bread and wine. Jesus clearly spoke and said that His body is true food, and that His blood is true drink. Nowhere in these verses did He say it was just symbolic, but instead, he clearly emphasized that it is truly and literally His body and blood. Christ said that, and He meant it. This is why the center of the Mass and of our Faith is the Eucharist, because we obey Christ and His teachings. This is also why the Catholic Church is strict on who can and can not receive Communion, because you are literally receiving the body and blood of Christ, present in the Eucharist. Only baptized Catholics who have made their First Communion and are in a state of Grace, may receive. By denying the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, is to call Him a liar, and He is not. This is the problem with most Protestants (with few sects being exceptions), because they know the Scriptures and they have seen the emphasis that Christ clearly placed on His Words regarding the Eucharist, and yet they deny His True Presence and His commandments. This is also what upsets me most about Protestants, because they are so close to getting it right, yet they deny some of the important commandments of Christ. Let us always pray for the conversion of Protestants everywhere.
