I saw a comment a few days ago that said something along the lines of, “When you realize the Left’s reaction to the Wuhan Flu is religious rather than rational, everything makes a lot more sense.” Yep.
I’m a Protestant Christian. The pastor of every congregation where I’ve worshiped has always offered regular communion, usually several times a year. Catholics have communion more often, and I suspect some congregations never do.
For Christians who follow Jesus Christ and try to do what he says, communion is a symbol of our faith in Jesus. We eat the bread and we drink the wine to remember and honor our Savior, and because Jesus told us to.
And when the hour came, [Jesus] reclined at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves. For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 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.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. – Jesus Christ, Luke 22
Does communion save us? Umm … I personally don’t think so. Is the bread and wine transformed into the actual body and blood of Christ Jesus during the ceremony? Maybe. Whatever you think, the main reasons for communion are to honor Jesus, remember the sacrifice he made for us, and to proclaim to the world that we are his followers.
The Left today is full of religious zealots. They attack people who don’t share their beliefs. They have priests and orthodoxy and communion, too. Their Pope is Fauci. Their priests are The Experts (the ones the agree with, anyway). Their orthodoxy is whatever Fauci and the experts say.
Fauci says wear a mask, so the Left wears a mask. Fauci says get vaccine, so his followers get a vaccine. Fauci says two masks and two shots! The Left obeys. Their mask and their vaccine proclaim to the world who they follow. That is their communion.
But unlike Christian communion, which is spiritual and applies to the afterlife, the Left’s communion is very physical and is damaging society. The lockdowns have hurt and killed thousands of small businesses. Masks have made people meaner. Vaccines have literally killed people. The Left’s religion is about control in the here and now.
Good Friday and Easter Sunday is this weekend. I’ll be mourning the death and pain of Jesus Christ the Man and celebrating the resurrection and victory over death of Jesus Christ my Divine Savior. He will welcome you in, too. All you have to do is answer.
Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ – Jesus Christ, Revelation 20
Have a Happy Easter! He is risen!
