My Current Meager Thoughts ...

... on the Eucharist:

-- If it's not the literal Body and Blood, it better be treated like it is, at least upon reception, if not consecration.

-- I'm leaning toward the Lutheran understanding of the elements; namely, that the Body and Blood of our Lord is "in, with, and under" the elements of communion.

-- It's a profound mystery, and, I think, even a Roman Catholic would admit that a scientific scan of the contents of your post-communion stomach would not show human flesh and human blood, but still, those elements are present, because He said so.

-- JESUS said, "This is My body." But He also said, "This is the New Covenant in My blood." I don't think the New Covenant was inside of the cup he passed around. That's just something to think about.

-- Many Protestant churches could learn a thing or two from the Lutherans (who are fellow Protestants) and Catholics.
