Hmm. Interesting. You were told, "by whom"?
1 Corinthians 11:27
Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be answerable for the Body and Blood of the Lord.
We keep getting those verses in John 6 quoted at us.
So eating the flesh and blood really doesn’t do it after all?
Then there’s a problem because Jesus says that eating His flesh and drinking His blood gives eternal life. He didn’t give any exceptions. If those verses are to be taken literally, then the flesh and blood has to work, all the time.
Now the Church adds more conditions to it that Jesus never mentioned.
Perhaps the literal interpretation isn’t the correct one after all because either Jesus is wrong or the Catholic church is.
