    What exactly is the purpose of eating Jesus' body and drinking his blood? This seems normal to Christians, but to an outsider it can seem very creepy and is essentially ritualistic cannibalism. Before people paste massive chunks of text saying things like "it brings you closer to him", surely you can do that spiritually without having to believe you're consuming him too?

    The Bible I suppose is a major reason for this. How should one interpret such a verse?

    John 6:53-57

    Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.

    Yeah, but the verse doesn't really explain the logic behind it, it just seems odd. I have a quote in my sig about a comment a religious troll made concerning eating Jesus.

    There are quite a few, "I and the Father are One" being one of the most famous, but that will derail this thread.

    That is a little ambiguous
    Is there an actual verse that directly states he is God, in the bible.
    Just curious.

    Not to derail the thread but:
    Luke 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why call me good? none is good, except one, that is, God.

    I believe in some denominations they get proper bread, just not in Catholicism :no: On the other hand, I think it's only Catholics who believe that it actually transforms into the body and blood of Jesus at the moment of transubstantiation.

    Transubstantiation is something I struggle with so I'm not gonna pretend to know anything or have a decent answer. Why not go ask a Catholic priest about the theology and meaning/significance behind it? Surely the best explanation would come from a priest

    This is derailing, but yes there are instances where this contradicts previous statements. Nevertheless, he does claim his divinity various times.

    Thanks for the advice, I may well do because I never understood this even as a Catholic.

    I can reply to you in the Ask About Christianity thread with verses in the Bible that support the trinity.

    I am an Orthodox though and I think it's different from that of the Catholics.

    It's a specific type of fresh bread here with an awesome wine... it tastes like heaven (I only taste it once a year though).

    Because they're nutjobs.

    That's usually the go-to answer.

    Some denominations like the Methodist Church often use grape juice as a substitute for wine. At least Catholics get proper wine :mmm:

    Think this pretty accurately depicts the origins of Christianity
