Moroni 4:3 and 5:2 [BOM]
3 O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and asanctify this bbread to the souls of all those who partake of it; that they may eat in cremembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the dname of thy Son, and always remember him, and keep his commandments which he hath given them, that they may always have his eSpirit to be with them. Amen.
2 O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee, in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this awine to the souls of all those who drink of it, that they may do it in bremembrance of the cblood of thy Son, which was shed for them; that they may witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they do always remember him, that they may have his dSpirit to be with them. Amen.
I don’t even know where to start. Jesus in the word’s of institution recorded in Scripture, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and 1 Corinthians, has some variation in the words used. Yet, This is my Body, This is my Blood are a constant, and the remembrance is always of the Person of Jesus, never of his Body or his blood. The point being we eat his body and drink his blood in remembrance of him, yet at the same time his body and his blood convey the forgiveness of sins. We do not eat mere bread or drink mere wine in remembrance of his body or his blood, which have done nothing apart from the work of the Person Jesus Christ who we are remembering. And all so that his “spirit” would be with us? Jesus says he is with us, wherever two or three are gathered, not just in spirit, this is why he gives us his body and blood.
Furthermore, the sacrament is just as much for our body as it is four our soul. This just doesn’t mesh with what has been reliably recorded elsewhere. This turns the whole thing into our work, rather than a blessing God has given to us.
P.S. They no longer use wine, they have felt free to use water instead, which is just plain blasphemous.
