Communion is not more than a pagan ritual to give vegans hope and share what a friend is offering

This is argument is about no longer having trust and believes in the church. That the church is just another place to respect the authorities at place and have the three headed god. Yet also have the Buddhist divinity in spirit. Which may get to four, three, two or one classifying me a pagan believing in any number of gods. The blood of Jesus is not only what my friend left for me but also in body in the form of bread so i do not have to share or feel bad about refusing my compatriots milk or egg to be in unified with his way of living. It just not the only way to increase happiness sharing in milk. Their is wine like our friend left us with.

Yeah communion is a pagan ritual for the advocation of animal produce in the current world. As the world is and was filling with piggy little people using milk and egg in everything. Its sometimes hard to order vegan foods and this how the world intended too be? No way why have an entire display of bar all containing milk? its madness is their not a niche for a bar of chocolate which is vegan.. The world is backwards and the only way too put it right is returning to scripture and look how there teach us, warn us and first and foremost.

Rebuttal

“Yeah communion is a pagan ritual for the advocation of animal produce in the current world. As the world is and
was filling with piggy little people using milk and egg in everything.”

There are different versions of Communion, but I will be assuming you are referring to the Catholic version.

The first thing wrong with this argument is that Communion is not pagan. The definition of pagan is “pertaining to the worship or worshipers of any religion that is neither Christian, Jewish, nor Muslim.”[1] As Communion is a Christian ritual, it is not pagan.

Another problem with your argument is that you claim that Communion is “for the advocation of animal produce.” The problem with this is that nothing eaten or drunk in Communion contains animal produce. The only thing which could, the bread, is specified by canon law to be “wheaten only” Canon 924 §2.

The rest of your argument is unrelated to your resolution.

Argument

In your resolution you state that “Communion is not more than a pagan ritual to give vegans hope and share what a friend is offering.” I will be arguing that Communion is more than a pagan ritual to give vegans hope and share what a friend is offering

First of all as I have already shown Communion is not pagan. It is Christian. It not just a pagan ritual as you contended it is a Christian ritual.

Secondly Communion isn’t meant to give vegans hope more than, anyone else. Nothing about Communion is about vegans.

You might want to take out the words " is not more than".

People can play semantics games & find one thing that's different.

On the other hand you can counter that, the difference doesn't make it better.

Yea, it not super difficult. I know he's a vegan of eastern persuasion. I also figured out that he believes Jesus is one of many Gods. The rest is just fill-in-the-blanks.

If anybody can make sense of what BBoySuperBeast is saying, then kudos to you. You should give some thought to becoming a papyrologist.

Communion uses unleavened bread. It's made from wheat flour, extra virgin olive oil and water. No eggs, no milk. This debate is silly.
