Where a recovering ex-atheist skewers things with a sharp two-edged sword

A simple argument that John 6 is not referring to the Eucharist

By on

1 minute to read I mean, of course it’s not—but try convincing a Catholic of that.

I’ll have much more to say on this topic another time, but the following (rather obvious) syllogism struck me while reading through John 6 today:

  1. Under Catholicism, many of those who take the Eucharist will nonetheless not have eternal life, due either to taking it without real faith, or because of the sacramental treadmill.
  2. But whoever feeds on Jesus’ flesh and drinks his blood will have eternal life (John 6:54).
  3. Therefore, the Eucharist is not Jesus’ flesh and blood.

And there that is.
