Hello, I have a question.
In John 6 , 53 it basically says that unless we eat/drink of Christ we have no life. What is my reply to protestants etc who state that according to the catholic doctrine , this means that unless one consumes the eucharist we have no hope of eternal life. It literally seems to say that.
Essentially Chirst seems to be saying that eating the eucharist is a requirement for salvation and those who don’t eat of him(the eucharist), cannot have eternal life.
I appreciate your response.
