The Communion Confusion

                                            

The Communion Confusion

 

1 Corinthians 11v23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you,
that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
24and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,
This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.
25In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying,
This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.
26For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord s death until He comes.

27Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.

Paul in 1 Corinthians proves once again to be a liar.
He claims to have received instructions directly from Jesus regarding the communion.

But by now we know that Paul s source of information, regarding the life and teaching of our Precious Lord Jesus, is Luke, the writer of the Gospel according to Luke.

In the accounts given below, by Matthew and Mark on the breaking of bread and sharing of wine, there is no mention of In Remembrance Of Me

Last supper

Matthew 26 26While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is my body. 27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father s kingdom. 30When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.



Mark 14 22While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take it; this is my body. 23Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many, he said to them. 25 I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God. 26When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
 

 

BUT LUKES ACCOUNT QUOTES THOSE WORDS

Luke 22 17.After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, Take this and divide it among you. 18.For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes. 19.And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,

This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

We do however find these words in Luke s account of the same event.

Another glaring point to consider is that the only OTHER person aside from Matthew, that was at the actual event, John the beloved, gives us a totally different account of the event.

This is Proof that Paul was greatly influenced by Luke.

In typical Paul fashion, he takes something that Jesus meant to be Holy , bringing life to the lost and twists it.
Paul takes the life changing event of Jesus crucifixion, twists it to bring condemnation on a person.

Paul says "So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

If we are only made worthy by the shedding of the precious blood of Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross.

Then it follows that when Jesus had communion with the 12 Apostles, they were definitely not worthy because he had not been crucified.

We were not and will never be worthy of the price that Jesus paid at Calvary.

Isaiah 64:6 Says We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind


How can the mere taking of communion, which SYMBOLISES the death of Jesus,bring about condemnation?

 

 

The very Opposite of what Jesus intended his death to be.

 

If the death of Jesus makes us worthy, then remembering his death in an unworthy state will not condemn us,but rather cause us to repent.


The dictionary defines sin as
1. A transgression of a religious or moral law, especially when deliberate.
2. Theology a. Deliberate disobedience to the known will of God.

The taking of communion is not LAW or a commandment from God. We cannot be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. If it s not a law.

Mood: None, or other
