there is a difference and it is the difference that makes all the difference - Communion is only mouldy old dough but an vital extra ingredient makes it manna from heaven - wincam

Communion is for believers in Jesus Christ, and it is to be observed with a mindset of humility. The Corinthian church was abusing this service, so Paul under the authority of the Spirit of God pens for us the attitude we need to bring to this memorial service. It is a memorial service for Jesus Christ, who died once for all. He does not need to be re-sacrificed, as the Catholic Mass attempts to do. Jesus Christ already died, was buried, and rose again from the dead. As we take the bread and the cup we “proclaim the Lord's death until He comes" (1 Corinthians 11:26). He is alive today, and we are asked to remember each time we participate in the Lord's Table that Jesus is alive and coming again!

it is still only mouldy old dough and just as bad as worshipping and praying to two pieces of deadwood polished up - wincam

1 Corinthians 10:16 (NASB)
16 Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ?

What vital extra ingredient do we need more than sincere faith and the presence of the Holy Spirit among fellow believers?

what sincere faith or presence of the H/S over the centuries and even supposedly now producing fruits of division, deception, divergence, differences, disputes, confusion and chaos and much worse - this is unforgiveable blasphemy - wincam

1 Corinthians 11:24-25King James Version (KJV)

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
