Communion?

Post by Strangelove on Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:31 am

I notice alot of people on forums refer to the 'Communion' or the 'Lords Dinner'.

Some of them almost make is sound like a ritual. Having never been to church I've never seen and experienced the communion but it sounds nice. But many seem to look on it as an absolutely necessary ritual in a Christians life....some even saying that I'm disobediant and lacking the Holy Spirit for not partaking.

Mat 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
Mat 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
Mat 26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Personally, I see a very touching scene here between Jesus and His beloved disciples. I dont see a direct commandment here to carry out a ritual for all Christians through the ages.

I dont see anything WRONG with breaking bread and drinking wine and being in remembrence of Jesus' sacrifice....but I just dont see any legal ritual here.

What do you guys think?

Are there any other relevant verses that support this Lords dinner ritual? Wasnt there a verse that says something like 'do this in rememberence of me'? Cant find it at the moment.

It is something that Jesus asked us to do in remembrance of Him.

You don't need to go to church to do it. We can sit down in front of our
computers with a bun and a cup of wine on the day of Passover and do it by
ourselves.

Actually we can do that every day. Jesus never stipulated how often we should
do it, or that it was to be done on a particular day.

If we love Jesus we love His Words and it is not a big thing to do what Jesus
asked us to do in remembrance of what He went through for us.

It is not a Salvation requirement, It's just something we should desire to do
out of the Love of Jesus.

Yay! Thats what I do. Hey Adstar.

I have a bottle of red up ontop of my cupboard and some nights I take a swig and give a little prayer to Jesus in remembrance of His blood that He spilled for me.

I'm getting told by some that I'm not 'actively worshipping' if I dont go to a church and partake of 'communion'. Pfft.

Where is the line about 'in remembrence of me'? I cant find it?

Here it is:

Luke 22
14 When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. 15 Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”
17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”
19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

I agree with adstar.

And Doc, dont let anyone make you feel less, becasue you dont go to a church to do ANYTHING especially communion.

"do this in remeberance of me" is also in 1 Corinthians 11:17

Paul is a bit angry at the congragation he is writing to, that they would gather together, and most would be hungry, so they would abserve the supper as a MEAL, instead as a remeberence of Jesus. They werent
waiting for the rest of the body doing so was wrong. They werent decerning the body.

THAT is why people will think you are doing it in an "unworthy manner" if you dont do it with a "Church" becasue you need to do it with the body.

But they are a bit wrong. When you take in the meal, do it unto God, not unto man. If you want to partake of the meal WITH others in one accord, then i guess pray for it, God will bring people to you. Other than that...

Sit on the couch with a small sifter of Wine(or grape juice...) and a peice of bread(i dont think you need to go and buy Matzoa...though you could)

Also: I think "in remeberance of Me" was toward the Jews, who would have the thanksgiving meal of passover, in rememberance of the exodus, Now instead do it in remeberence of Jesus.

But thats just my take on it.
