So you are telling us what Luke and Paul wrote is a lie? Really?<quoted text>
Jesus says in scripture the bread is His body, the wine His blood. He says His flesh is real food and His blood real drink and that we must eat and drink His flesh and blood to have eternal life.
The oral tradition says the exact same thing.
You say "it's symbolic and figurative!!!"
But scripture DOES NOT say it's symbolic or figurative. Oral tradition says it's NOT symbolic or figurative.
What you say doesn't agree with scripture.
What we say agrees with scripture AND tradition.
Should we get out a BIG BLACK "MAGIC MARKER" and draw huge black lines through these verses nobody can see or read them. Well, should we?
Luke 22:19-20, 19 "And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood."
I Corinthians 11:23-26, 23 "For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." 25 n the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes."
