The Meal That Heals is a book by Perry Stone.
Its about Communion.
He also sells Communion kits
Here’s the excerpt
The Meal That Heals explains the power of the Communion experience to bring physical and spiritual healing to the life of a believer. It answers common questions about the act of Communion and explains the difference between the Catholic Mass and Protestant Communion. It reveals biblical secrets about the parallels between the manna in the wilderness and Christ’s own experience in Gethsemane. It shows the power of receiving daily Communion, which allows the life of Christ to work in your body, driving out every sickness, disease, and weakness that hinders your life.
Now I’m not a Staunch Catholic I don’t have a siege mentality and I’m not Traditional Or Sedvacantis other wise sometimes refered to as Conclavist.
I could give a hoot about Protestants they don’t bother me and I have a lot of respect for the Wesleyan ones such as Nazarenes like My wife and her Family.
They share some of our beliefs but not all.
A lot of Protestants will take communion in service and sometimes in Bible study or prayer groups.
This doesn’t offend me because its not in the same light in which Catholic and Orthodox Communion is.
My Mother inlaw has some prayers for communion as she was a sunday school teacher and her husband my father in law and my wifes father was a Pastor for a few years.
So again I don’t take offense or really care all that much because Murica is primarily a Protestant Country and its so intergrated into history, society and families I don’t feel any Judgment or hatred towards Protestants they simply have different beliefs and it would never occurs to most of them to enter a Catholic Church.
The only Issue and Offense I take is Fundementalism and the hate that’s spewed at the Catholic Church and our Traditional Sacremental Christian brethen Eastern Othordox,Oriental Orthodox, Anglicans and Lutherans.
They see the Eucharist in a different light and its symbolic where ours is literal.
Now getting to Perry Stone.
I don’t want to Pass Judgment or bear false witness or even ridicule the man because I have never read any of his books.
I was interested in him as I have read some wonderful books from Charism House by John Eckardt.
From what I understand he leans close to some vague similarities to Catholicism which has given him flack from Fundementalist Christians who conect him to the Whore (Us according to them).
He has books on spiritual warfare, angels, communion etc.
So again it doesn’t bother me that Protestant Groups or Churches buy Communion wafers from Church suppliers.
What concerns me is that its sold like diet bars from Perry Stone.
It reminds me of Dane Cooks skit on the Christ chex.
I guesse my interest/concern is that people are taking it out of superstician it has healing properties or its in a disrespectfull light.
Its one thing to take Communion at Church or in a Bible Study or Prayer group that seems appropriate.
But keeping a little bagey of Eucharist next to your vitamins and nightly glass of water on your nightstand does not seem within the norm or respectfull.
At the same time why shell out money for this.
I mean couldn’t you just obtain or download off line the Communion prayer to your denomination then go and buy a cheap box of Ritz crackers?
Has anyone read his books? Or heard his Sermons or is famiiar with his Meal that heals?
