Wake up Catholics! The Eucharist is NOT "symbolic"!


Recent polls show that nearly half of all Catholics don't believe the Catholic teaching about the Eucharist. Wake up Catholics! The Eucharist is not "symbolic". How do we know that? Because Jesus Christ said so that's why. Who are you to tell God He's wrong? Don't be so prideful you send yourself to hell in a handbasket as the saying goes. Proverbs 16:18 "Prides goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." Jesus said He is the Bread of Life and that those who eat His Flesh and drink His Blood abide in Him and have everlasting life. What part of that don't you get? Look at our Lord and Saviors words in John 6:
Verse 53 "Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."
Let's stop here for a minute. How clear is that? What does "unless" mean here? If it's only symbolic then why is it so vital for eternal life? Think people and read what your Savior said.
Verse 54 "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
Again, nothing symbolic here. Jesus is making a clear statement and telling us what to do to abide in Him. He says "eat my flesh" and "drink my blood". No symbolism here.
Verse 55 "For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink."
Here Jesus makes it crystal clear by saying "real" - "my flesh is REAL food" and "my blood is REAL drink". Nothing symbolic there. Jesus does NOT say "my flesh is SYMBOLIC food" nor "my blood is SYMBOLIC drink". Jesus said REAL and He meant it. When God speaks do you believe Him or tell him "You can't mean that God, you've got it wrong, let me tell you what you really meant to say"? Are you that prideful (and ignorant) as to think you know more than God himself? Wake up Catholics! You don't know it all, but Jesus does and He's telling you the Eucharist is REAL, NOT symbolic as some would like you to believe. Who's the Great Deceiver? Who loves to twist things and get believers to doubt their faith and question their beliefs? Satan of course. Here's an interesting (to some) tidbit about scripture. In Revelation the number of the Beast is given to be "666". In scripture all those who refused to believe in the Eucharist are found in John 6:66. Strange how those things work out. Don't fall for the Deceiver who's working hard among those who call themselves Christians- be they Catholic or non-Catholic. If you don't know your Catholic faith, you are doomed to fall for deception. If you don't know why the Catholic Church believes what it does ASK! Or get a Catholic catechism and read it for yourself. Don't let anyone talk you out of your faith because they know scripture better than you or seem to know more about theology. Know your faith! Teach your faith to your children so they can stand up to deception and untruths about our Catholic faith. Jesus told the disciples He was sending them out among wolves and that they had to be "shrewd as snakes, but innocent as doves" (Matt.10:16). Be shrewd Catholics or the wolves will make a buffet out of you. Jesus Christ said the Eucharist is "real", not "symbolic" and that is exactly what the Catholic Church teaches. If you're Catholic and you don't believe this, you need to start believing it. Talk to your priest, join your parishes RCIA class to 'refresh' your knowledge of your faith. There are many people in my parish who do this and are already Catholics but wish to know their faith better. Educate yourselves so you don't fall for deception. The Eucharist IS REAL. Jesus Christ said so. That's all we need to know. Trust in God. Here's something else to consider. If Jesus isn't real in the Eucharist and you are just kneeling to bread you are committing idolatry. If you are Catholic and don't believe you are kneeling to our Lord in the Eucharist then just what is it you think you are kneeling to? Freihofer's bread? Think Catholics and wake up!

Continue on to verse 63: "It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing: the words I speak to you are SPIRIT and LIFE". JESUS SAID.... "THE WORDS I SPEAK TO YOU ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE". Jesus told his disciples over and over that he speaks in parables so that only those that had ears could hear. When Jesus spoke of eating flesh: "many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him". They were thinking with a carnal mind and didn't like the whole idea of cannibalism. Who could blame them for that? Their problem was that they failed to "hear" Christ. Througout the gospels, Jesus repeatedly talks in parables and then explains that he talks in parables. This instance is no different, he tell them his words are spirit. In the OlD Testament, you will find many of the same parables that Jesus used. If one believes the disciples ate literal flesh, then one must also believe that the Old Testament prophets literally ate scrolls when God gave the command to eat his WORD??? Jeremiah 15:16, Ezekiel 2:8-9, Ezekiel 3:1-3 are a few references. It's easy at times to take one verse out of context, but the whole Bible cannot be taken out of context. It is written: Precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, there a little, there a little. Isaiah 28:13. Jesus lived by the principles that GOD delivered through the prophets in the OLD TESTAMENT. It is documented throughout the entire gospel. What were Jesus' first words in Matthew? He quoted the OLD Testament to Satan. This pattern of Scripture reference by Jesus can be found over and over. I assume that you have at some point tasted your own blood due to a cut lip or something else? Shouldn't the wine after being turned to blood, taste like human blood? And the wafer, shouldn't it have the consistency of raw human flesh? Real is real, it cannot be both ways. In John 7:17 Jesus says "My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me". God sent him. Where do we get God's doctrine? The OLD TESTAMENT. We get the NEW TESTAMENT as living proof. Jesus said "Search the Scriptures: for in them ye think to have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me." John 5:37
