    Early this year, the blogger "Fra Cristoforo" on Anonimi Della Croce posted about the development of an "Ecumenical Mass" for Catholic and Protestants to celebrate together. The blog is now back with a new address and the rumour has actually gained some credibility. We wrote about the latest on this blasphemous matter in a story by Marco Tossatti. Now, in his blog, Stilum Curae, Tossatti goes even further in describing the unrestrained influence of a lay Italian "liturgist," Andrew Grillo, who is involved in a major way, in the process, Grillo is a professor at the Pontifical Academy of Saint...

    White Horse Inn ^ | May 3, 2014 | Timothy F. Kauffman
    Roman Catholicism was 300 years too late to be “the stone that … became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” (Daniel 2:35). [This is the third installment of a three part series.]When former Protestant, Taylor Marshall, wrote Eternal City, he sought to explain why Christianity is necessarily Roman. “The Church,” he wrote, “receives the Roman empire” from its previous custodians. But in concluding this, Marshall has mistakenly transposed two kingdoms—both of which Daniel addressed, and both of which Daniel set against the background of the rise and fall of four world empires. One kingdom is of earth...

    White Horse Inn ^ | June 1, 2014 | Timothy F. Kauffman
    Long before Jesus turned water into wine, He turned Marys amniotic fluid into meconium, and her breast milk into transitional stools. Anyone who has ever changed a childs diaper knows that the resulting odor offends the nostrils greatly. As Jesus would later instruct us, whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly and ends up in the toilet (Matthew 15:17), or in His case as an infant, in the diaper. Thus did Jesus lower gastrointestinal tract operate as it must for all men, and thus did our Lord endure the gastrocolic reflex, as all we mortals do. We...

    Ex Catholics for Christ ^ | Circa 2014 | unknown
    When sharing with catholics the wonderful news about the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross for the sins of the world, one of the most tragic and miserable deceptions that many of them have blindly bought into is their worship and idolization of the eucharist. Breaking bread is something that all Bible believers cherish and take very seriously, especially after reading Paul's solemn admonition not to come to the Lord's table with any unconfessed sin in our hearts (1 Cor. 11:23-34). However, communion is only for those of us that have already been saved from...

    Mere signs For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lords death until he comes (1 Cor 11:26). There are liturgical churches that put great stock in the real presence. If you dont believe in the real presence, you are said to reduce the sacraments to mere signs or nude signs. Lets talk about signs for a moment. The camera is a wildly popular invention. Its become even more popular in the age of digital cameras, cellphone cameras, and Facebook. Why do people like to take pictures? Well, there are different reasons....
  • Interpreting The Bible And Later Sources On The Eucharist

    Triablogue ^ | July 05, 2008 | Jason Engwer
    Interpreting The Bible And Later Sources On The Eucharist I want to make a couple of points that aren't often emphasized, or even mentioned at all, in discussions about John 6 and the eucharist. - When John 6 is discussed in relation to the eucharist, the discussion often begins with the comments on the bread of Heaven in verse 31, verse 35, or somewhere else later in the passage. But we should keep the earlier context in mind. Given the contrast that Jesus sets up in John 6:26-29, in which resting in faith in Him is contrasted with the...
  • Never Thirst-Taking Jesus" Literally" can be Fatal

    Thoughts of Francis Turretine ^ | July 17, 2014 | TurretinFan
    Never Thirst - Taking Jesus "Literally" can be Fatal Roman Catholics like to try to claim that they are just taking Jesus "literally" when they interpret "this is my body" to mean that what was in Jesus' hands was not bread but his physical body [FN1]. Three passages in John help to illustrate the problem with that approach: John 4, John 6, and John 7. In the first, Jesus refers metaphorically to living water, in the second Jesus refers to himself as food and drink, and in the third Jesus offers drink to those who thirst. In John 4, Jesus...
  • Early Church Evidence Refutes Real Presence

    One Fold ^ | March 11,2015 | unknown
    Early Church Evidence Refutes Real Presence Introduction The real presence doctrine is probably the most important doctrine to Catholics today because it is the nucleolus of the Catholic mass. The doctrine insists that the eucharistic elements of bread and wine become the glorified body and blood of Christ when blessed by the priest. The doctrine further asserts that the substance of bread and wine are no longer present and only the accidents (characteristics or appearance) remain. Thus, the name derived from the explanation becomes transubstantiation (a change of substance). It is this belief that compels devout Catholics to worship the...

    Peace By Jesus ^ | March 4,2015 | Peace by Jesus
    Preface: This is an extensive examination of the Roman Catholic sacrament of Eucharist (which means thanksgiving) as regards the doctrine of the “Real Presence.” This deals with the question as to whether Scripture teaches that Jesus is literally and wholly present—body and blood, soul and divinity—under the appearances of bread and wine by transubstantiation of the elements of bread and wine. And by which believers thereby receive life in themselves. Or whether, consistent with other examples of figurative language and teaching, the elements are representations of Christ, and that eating and drinking Christ in John 6 refers to receiving and...

    The Cripplegate, New Generation of Non-Conformists ^ | May 23, 2013 | Nathan Busenitz, professor of theology at Cripplegate's The Masters Seminary
    Over the past few weeks, I have received no less than three inquiries regarding the early churchs celebration of the Lords Table and its implications for the evangelical church today. Two of these inquiries have come from Roman Catholics, each of whom has suggested that the Roman Catholic practice of transubstantiation best represents the way the Lords Table was observed in the first few centuries of church history. Over the past few weeks, I have received no less than three inquiries regarding the early churchs celebration of the Lords Table and its implications for the evangelical church today. Two of...

    Catholic in the Ozarks ^ | June 2, 2014 | Shane Schaetzel
    by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, available from http://fssp.org One of the greatest tragedies of the Reformation is the loss of authentic holy orders in Protestant communities, and as a subsequent result of that, the loss of the real presence in Holy Communion. Of course this is not a problem for a large number of Protestants who no longer believe in the real presence of Christ in Holy Communion anyway. Transubstantiation is the belief that the bread and wine elements in communion, really and truly, become the actual body (flesh) and blood of Jesus Christ once they are...
