Actually, if we want to talk about issues relating to driving after having communion wine, the issue isn't with worshippers who have only a sip, or even less than that if they dip the host into the cup.

The issue relates to the priest.

In some churches, we use real wine-- and communion wine is a fortified wine (it has a higher-than-usual alcohol content). That is meant to protect people because we use a common cup.

After all the worshippers have received communion, the priest consumes whatever wine is left in the chalice. You may be able to estimate what you need pretty well on a typical Sunday, but there are sometimes when you can be WAY off, and left with a lot of wine-- for example, if you are doing a wedding or funeral, and have no way to guess how many of those present will want to receive communion. The wine can and is reserved for use at hospitals/sick beds, if it hasn't been poured into a chalice yet, but once it has gone into the chalice it would be difficult to pour it back into a cruet without spilling.

At my church, I don't have to drink it all myself-- I get the chalice-bearers and assisting clergy to help. But I have had services where I was pretty much on my own, or had a chalice-bearer who for some reason was not able to help. If you have to down half a chalice of fortified wine, you DO want to stick around for Coffee Hour before getting behind your wheel.

PS to Stormz-- If you think the communion wine tastes like slop, try putting away a whole chalice of it!

Whatcha got?
Please post the source which gave you the correct interpretation of these texts.
Uhh. There is no greater source that I can provide than the scriptures. In our congregation we let the scriptures interpret the scriptures as opposed to trying to add out own interpretation to the scriptures as most misled people tend to do. They then tend to end up totally mis-interpreting the scriptures and end up coming up with erroneous interpretations such as that non-sense like Adam and Eve ate the wrong produce so God got angry and drove them out of the garden.

Speaking of oddities...why did Lord Pacal have 144,000 on his forehead, when he was a "Pagan", and knew nothing about the "christian" beliefs?
Perhaps he was aware of a far earlier teaching...

As you can see, your response did not answer my question.

I'll try again. Are you really going to be like the others?

Are sinners infallible? We won't go back to the original post by you - paraphrasing of course - "even though some popes were sinners....."....etc, etc, etc.

So I asked you, "are sinners infallible?" in reference to the issuance of Pope infallibility, but now, including the "sinner" label attached to many of them.

Since you agree with Anthony on believing in your mind that the Pope is infallible, and a sinner can be infallible.

Gotcha, I've made a note of this, just in case I decide to revert to your religion.

Remember - honesty Clay. Very simple, right?

Please tell me:
- since St Thomas is considered inspired, and I understand that "God" only inspired a few select people and Thomas was one of them -- where is it written, by "God", that states that Thomas' gospel is not inspired?

Where's that old coot called OldJG that used to be wasting time trying to elucidate on the scriptures. Haven't heard from him in some time.

I don' tend to really read most of these posts so if he happened to post in my abscence, then I may have missed what he posted because as I stated I don't really read most of these posts.

Uhhh,you understand that God only inspired a few select people? Well do tell. We understand that anyone under the influence and guidance of the Holy Spirit can be inspired. Any person,man or woman under the influence of the Holy Spirit can be inspired to even teach Gods word ACCURATELY. To teach the word of God ACCURATELY requires inspiration from the Holy Spirit thus it is an inspiration from God. So no my friend, there's more than a few people that God inspires. Scripture even tells us that in the last days God would pour out of His Spirit and both sons and daughters shall prophesy. Prophesy means to teach. Teach what? Teach Gods word. They will be teaching what the prophets wrote etc, etc. That is a form of being inspired and that is done by the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Its highly unlikely the Apostle Thomas wrote the 'Gospel of Thomas'. Most scholars think it was penned by men in the 2nd century.

Regardless, all scripture relied on a group to label it as 'inspired'. The Bible never instructs us on what Books belong in it. In Christianity, it took the authority of the Catholic Church at the councils of Laodicea, Carthage, Rome and Hippo to finalize the Biblical canon in the 4th century.
