This blog is having an existential crisis
While I tinker with a new design, I’m also pondering how, what, and why I write here. I don’t know how long that will take, but you’re welcome to
email me and see how things are progressing. Stress-testing the mind of Christ Where a recovering ex-atheist rams the Bible into other worldviews to see what breaks (note: Scripture cannot be broken)
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.
