The Mass: 'This is my body'


Why do you as a Protestant not believe the words of Christ, Who in blessing the elements at the Last Supper said: "This is my body"?
Rev. J.C. Kyle Paisley

Protestants accept the words of Christ wholeheartedly and repudiate the false construction put upon them by the Church of Rome. We do not believe that the bread and wine are really, truly and substantially changed into the body, blood, soul, Deity, "bones and sinews of Christ" (Council of Trent).

We repudiate Rome's error because of her hypocrisy. She rejects the Bible as the sole rule of faith, but at the same time claims an infallible interpretation of it and makes this interpretation one of the basic tenets of her religion.

Jesus Christ also said: "This cup is the New Testament in my blood." (I Cor. 11:25) Why does Rome not teach, if she is to be consistent, that the chalice becomes the New Testament?

Protestants also reject Roman error because of its absurdity. If we are to literalise Christ's words here, then what are we to do with similar Scriptures? For example, when Christ said: "I am the door", consistency demands the interpretation that he had four panels, a handle and a keyhole. In John 15:1 Jesus says: "I am the vine." Does this mean that His arms were branches and yielded grapes? The Saviour is called the "Rock" in I Cor. 10:4. Does this mean that he is a solid stone? Isaiah 40:6 says: "All flesh is grass", but a human being would have to be green if this were taken literally.

Further, Christ said of the cup: "This cup is the new testament in my blood" (Luke 22:20 and I Cor. 11:25). Why does Rome not teach, if she is to be consistent, that the chalice becomes the New Testament in the mass?

(1) Is this God working, or is it a repackaging of Roman ecumenism?

Rome's blasphemy. The teaching of Rome has also to be rejected because of its blasphemy. If the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ, then He makes himself the prey of cannibals. The purpose, as well as the implications, of Romish doctrine, is blasphemous too. It is supposed necessary to re-create Christ in order to re-offer Him. Both are not only impossible, but unnecessary. Christ's sacrifice is finished, and the Scriptures declare (Rom. 6:9): "Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him."
