I’d like to have a little discussion on this topic. Do you find yourself saying bread and wine instead of body and blood when talking about the Eucharist?
Is this a testament to our individual faith? What do you think?
Honestly, I catch myself saying bread and wine often, knowing that’s not what it is, or at least that’s not what we teach. Is this a true showing of my faith? I don’t think it’s a mental slip since I do it often.
In fact, there is even a bit of discomfort in calling it the body and blood because it just sounds kind of weird, you know?
I agree, it does seem wierd, and I have caught myself saying that as well. However, it does say in the Bible, Jesus took the “bread” and broke it and said “This is my body…” that could be where it comes from, because we hear it as, He took the bread. And our minds process it like that so when we think about it, and go to talk about it, it comes out as what our minds processed it about. Its kind of the same thing as that color test, they type the color name in a different color and ask you to say the color of the word and not read the word. Its almost as complicated as trying to read the last sentance I just wrote, ” title=”Razz” /> But its pretty cool. Ill see if I can find a link to it.
