    Okay I’ve heard that in the Catholic church only members are allowed to accept Communion. Isn’t that kinda, un-biblical?

    Hey, that’s a great question. Maybe you could elaborate a little more. How do you think it is unbiblical?

    Un-Biblical, how do you support that? We receive Communion because we are in FULL communion with our church. With that full communion comes that understanding that the Eucharist is the BODY and BLOOD of Jesus. Is it ok to walk into a synogog and participate fully with Jewish people in their worship when you are not Jewish? Is it ok to walk into a mosque and participate with Muslims in their worship when you are not Muslim? No it is not. Protestants broke away from the Catholic church, not the other way around. If you are not in full communion, then you can not receive Communion, which Protestants do not qualify for by their own actions. Please list all Biblical references to support your claims.
