Whew! I've been wanting to say that here for a long time. This is another one of the issues I mentioned in another thread. Don't bother going to check on my profile to see where I attend, I've removed the church name AND I'll see who visited my page. My church has not had communion since it was started over 2 years ago. I've asked the pastor about this and I get a somewhat run-around answer of "since we are a church plant and are still under the auspices of the planting church I can't give communion because we are not an autonomous church yet. I don't have the authority to give communion on my own." Well, I'm not feeling as if I'm obeying my Savior, who said "Do this in remembrance of Me" and of the scripture that says, "If you love me, keep my commandments." "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” "Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him." So what do I do? I could ask the pastor again, but I fear I will get the same response. I know that others have asked the same question and gotten the same answer. Go to another church for communion? Pastors who are reading this, have you ever heard of this excuse for not having communion? Can someone explain how this is a legit reason not to have communion? Please give me suggestions on what to do. This is REALLY bothering me.
