Now, your "scripture" says, "For, behold, I say unto you, that it mattereth not what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink when ye partake of the sacrament"
Don't you think Jesus was smart enough that when he instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, he might have mentioned that? Or are you limiting his intelligence?
I mean, instead of waiting 1800 + years, and saying, "oops, my bad, I forgot to tell ya'll something."
Don't you think Jesus was smart enough that when he instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, he might have actually called it the "Sacrament of the Eucharist" and might have even claimed to be instituting a religious sacrament to be observed in a weekly Mass in the first place? Or are you limiting his intelligence?
Hey, maybe Jesus did mention this stuff, only the guys who wrote it down all those years later were a little bit fuzzy about everything. I mean, there are no original written sources for these gospels, and the ones we do have are from long after the events they allegedly describe. Evidence of corruption of sacred texts from this period is rampant, as there were many factions competing at the time such as Marcionites, Ebionites, Nazarenes, various gnostic groups, and of course the proto-orthodox. They were all calling each other heretics and what not. So who knows?
It's like listening to my kids argue with each other about their made-up stuff. They use make-believe to hurt each others' feelings.
