Hosea 8:6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. According to that scripture, anything that a workman can make is not God. If someone worships it as being God, then he is breaking one of the 10 commandments and is committing idolatry. The bible says that idolators won't go to heaven. [This includes a round piece of bread with IHS on it shaped like the sun, and housed in a sunburst design holder.] Genuflecting- definition- American heritage dictionary To bend the knee in a kneeling, or half kneeling position, as in worship. Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Exodus 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. Don't worship that piece of bread as if it is God. Don't call it God. And don't bow down to it.-- if you really want to go to heaven!! If the wine did become the actual blood of Christ, then it would be disobeying scripture to drink it. Christians are not supposed to drink blood. Acts 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well. I believe that transubstantiation is not true, and the bread remains just bread and the wine remains just wine. It represents Jesus's body and blood in a spiritual or comparative way, and it is just a figure of speech. I believe Jesus was speaking in parable form when He made the statement about it. parable:--comparing an earthly reality to a spiritual truth The scriptures show that Jesus did not mean it literally but was making a spiritual comparison. John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. John 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. From those words it can be seen that Jesus was not talking about His literal flesh. He was making a spiritual comparison, or speaking in parable form, comparing how the body gets nourishment from eating bread to how a Christian nourishes his spiritual life by dwelling in Jesus, (obeying His teachings), and Jesus dwelling in him. John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. Making an idol out of anything, and that includes a piece of bread, and calling it God and worshipping it, and bowing down to it can get you thrown in hell. Idol worshippers don’t go to heaven. That church practice is going to cause millions to go to hell.!!!
