When I became an Christian at the age of fifteen or so I joined an Evangelical church, a Pentecostal church to be exactly, and inherited a tradition that the Lord’s Supper—Communion—was a symbolic memorial of Christ’s death on the cross.
What I didn’t know then was that for the first 1,500 years of Christianity, for the overwhelming bulk of Christian history, the Church had unanimously believed that the bread and wine, at Communion, became the real flesh and real blood of Christ.
And when I found that out, I had to ask some serious questions about why I wasn’t in continuity with that ancient tradition.
