Even though there is no danger of true true sacrilege (these Protestants have no valid Eucharist or anything like), there is danger of idolatry… and of being kinda dumb.
Perhaps it’s a matter of lack of oxygen at higher altitudes?
I bring this grizzly thing up because the woman tries to drag Catholics into her charade.
Colorado Woman Sells Communion In Pill Form
DENVER (CBS4)– One Colorado businesswoman is taking a symbol of her faith to those on the go.
Theresa Lay came up with God’s Pill after going through a personal tragedy.
“I had gone through loss in my life and I was taking daily communion. [I wonder what Protestant groups do that.] And I thought about a portable way, a quick and easy way to do it,” she told CBS4’s Dominic Garcia. [Without all that inconvenient business of going to church, etc. Maybe she should team up with those Pez dispenser people?]
One pill is made of matzo bread powder, the other red wine extract. She says it could be used by the military or people who are traveling. One person who reviewed the product said it has allowed them to worship in the jungles of Gambia. [Worship….what, exactly?]
“Large groups or just people on the go who want to worship and give thanks to God. That’s pretty much how I invented the communion pill.”
Theresa says the pill isn’t associated with any denomination, it doesn’t matter if you’re Protestant or Catholic. [“It doesn’t matter” (so long as you buy!] She says 2,000 years ago communion was with fresh bread and wine. These days it’s wine or juice and processed wafers. The next step can now be prayer in pill form. [In PILL form! I can see The Tablet getting on board with this. This is right at the level of their faith/worship experience.]
“I believe communion brings hope and healing to the world. It’s been 2,000 years since the last supper and it’s new every time someone celebrates”. [It’s new every time!]
Which will it be, Neo?
Okay… I might have to admit that this is no more sophisticated in its concept than the knowledge and faith in the Eucharist of many, if not most communicants these days.
