Obviously as a Protestant I believe the blood and wine are symbolic, not actual.

So did almost everyone else, until the Fourth Lateran Council, in 1215, invented the notion of transubstantiation out of whole cloth.

The doctrine of the Eucharist that was accepted semper, ubique, et ab omnibus, is that of the Real Presence.

Transubstantiation is as big a theological joke as Joseph Smith’s golden plates.

No Council had to invent anything.

Christ said, “This is by Body.”

“This is my Blood.”

“Do this in remembrance of me.”

Straight from the mouth of Jesus. Absolutely the truth!
