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:
- 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.
- But whoever feeds on Jesus’ flesh and drinks his blood will have eternal life (John 6:54).
- Therefore, the Eucharist is not Jesus’ flesh and blood.
And there that is.
