  • “Should individuals be excluded from communion just because they are not members of the church in which it is being observed?” — David

    If you thought the topic of baptism generated high-energy responses, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Just mention communion. A great deal of blood has been spilled among Christians over the former — but immeasurable words of theological debate have been penned regarding the latter.
    In this brief space we cannot get into transubstantiation, consubstantiation, and related views of the New Testament teachings on the supper. Neither can we delve into the specific nature of the efficacy of the event, whether sacramental, salvific, or symbolic. All of these topics do relate to your question, however, because various Christian traditions have, rightly or wrongly, successfully rendered communion as well as baptism into actions of the church that divide believers.
    So, let’s look at the texts (Mt. 26:26-29; Mk. 14:22-25; Lk. 22:17-20; I Co. 11:23-25). We may conclude from the simple instructions given to Jesus’ disciples that the meal is for all Christ-followers. For non-believers it is merely an unsatisfactory snack.
