The quote is also found under the section, "THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION"; and then under the subheading, "THE POWER OF HOLY COMMUNION": What a lie of Satan!!! In fact, only a handful of references are made in the entire Bible to the Lord's Supper (communion). These are the words of a religion; and NOT from the Bible.
Mary is no more special than anyone else in Heaven.It is unscriptural and sinful to recognize Mary in any way, shape, or form.1st Corinthians must NOT be interpreted by itself.If we simply believe upon Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, trusting upon the finished work of Christ to take away our sins with His blood, our sins will be forgiven.How dare any stiff-necked minister or priest teach differently.You can't be fooled if you'll follow the Word of God my friend.
John is used by the Lutheran minister and the Catholic priest to claim they have power to forgive your sins.Basing a doctrine upon this Scripture alone could easily result in a damnable heresy, which is exactly what Mr. 1st Corinthians clearly states, "After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in REMEMBRANCE of me." Paul was quoting Christ when in Luke Jesus said, "...This is my body which is given for you: this do in REMEMBRANCE of me." The Word of God plainly teaches that the Lord's Supper is simply a means to REMEMBER what Christ did for us upon Calvary, no more.I want you to notice carefully here that the EXACT same Greek word "aphiemi," which is used in John , is also used in Matthew , "And forgive us our debts, as not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." These are from the EXACT same Greek word, "aphiemi," found in John .Hence, ministers and priests have no more ability to pardon other people's sins than laymen do.To claim, as Lutheran's do, that there is some special power to the Lord's Supper is a Satanic lie. Notice carefully how Satan has actually replaced faith in Jesus Christ, with The Bible never leads us to place our faith in the Lord's Supper.
