Aguest, Thank you for your reply!
The Catholic religion offers"mass" everyday; members are not required, however, and so most members don't, "partake" every day. It is there, however, if they wish to. Of these, the Catholic practice is closest to accurate.
I like that and the scriptures that you brought up 2. How often do I want to be in union with Christ? John 6:56; John 15:4-7
John 6: 56 He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood remains in union with me, and I in union with him.
John 15: 4 -7 Remain in union with me, and I in union with YOU . Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, in the same way neither can YOU , unless YOU remain in union with me. 5 I am the vine, YOU are the branches. He that remains in union with me, and I in union with him, this one bears much fruit; because apart from me YOU can do nothing at all. 6 If anyone does not remain in union with me, he is cast out as a branch and is dried up; and men gather those branches up and pitch them into the fire and they are burned. 7 If YOU remain in union with me and my sayings remain in YOU , ask whatever YOU wish and it will take place for YOU .
I like that because what I am thinking is that the eating of the bread or drinking from the rock mass, the cup of wine, etc. are symbols, just as I think that the tree of knowlegde of good and bad and the garden of eden are also symbols of what are in and about our heads. like it say in the model prayer as in heaven also on earth, and at
Acts 17:24 The God that made the world and all the things in it, being, as this One is, Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in handmade temples,
I thought that there was a scripture saying something like our body is Gods tempel, you will need tobare with me a little as I did mention before that history is not one of my best subjects, and neither is reading. I have not read the bible but I think that's okay sense Jesus said to observe the pharisees.
Mathew 23:1 Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying: 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the seat of Moses. 3 Therefore all the things they tell YOU , do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds, for they say but do not perform.
Also John the baptist said at Mathew 3:11 I, for my part, baptize YOU with water because of YOUR repentance; but the one coming after me is stronger than I am, whose sandals I am not fit to take off. That one will baptize YOU people with holy spirit and with fire
And the JWs will not baptize me, and or I do not have the time to learn to kiss their behinds.
So I do not believe that one needs to be baptized with water because Jesus can baptize with holy spirit and with fire, but the individual first need have the right heart condition and believe that God does exists. I had a scripture that said something like God searches the heart and if that person does not believe God exsists then his heart is not in it, but I have lost that scripture.
I hope that I have done well writing this, and my writting skills are some what better then my reading skills,
again, I do not believe that there really was a Garden of Eden, how ever I may be wrong, and a lot of things in the bible whether they really happened or not, or being material things are real or not are acually symbols representing something spiritual.
Okay here it goes
