Protestantism was falsified here on TOL

Finito doneski DOA, in February 2016, over five years ago.

It was an impromptu battle royale debate, many participants (many of whom have ceased participating on TOL, which I don't think is coincidental), during which a group of Catholic users and an Orthodox user and a Noncatholic-Nonprotestant user, defeated every other Protestant view on the matter of the Real Presence of Christ in the (validly celebrated) Eucharist.

This thread's a hundred pages long, but you only have to read to like page four to see the end. Nobody, not a single Protestant, could argue the point. In this thread it was proven that the whole Church believed in the Real Presence going all the way back as far as we can tell.


That makes Catholicism and Orthodoxy the only two serious contenders for the real Church in the Bible.

A little play-by-play.

OP and Catholic @chrysostom says " this could be the most interesting collection of posters I have ever had in one of my threads" at post 283, which is long after the outcome of this impromptu 'battle royale' has already been determined.

Catholic @Cruciform shows up at post 57, and Protestant @csuguy shows up post 98. And then the eventual victor Orthodox @brewmama 'enters the ring' at post 108 and is immediately engaged by Protestant @SaulToPaul.

csuguy is in the final battle with brewmama, which begins post 136, when brewmama takes on csuguy directly.

At post 115 brewmama sets out the eventual winning claim in the debate, which is the common belief of both Orthodoxy and Catholicism regarding the Eucharist: the 'Real Presence' of the Lord Jesus Christ in the altar bread and wine of Holy Communion (Holy Orthodoxy & Holy Catholicism both "subscribe to the Real Presence" cite).

Posts 216 and 217 end the debate, with brewmama the winner, polishing off csuguy with two posts not replying directly to csuguy but instead to Jehovahs Witness @KingdomRose as a proxy.

Re-cap.

csuguy presented the most powerful (Protestant) argument I've ever seen against the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist being a true Christian doctrine, like the Trinity and Christ's Resurrection, that the Church should believe and confess. brewmama handled csuguy's argument, and that is consistent with the Real Presence being the truth, which means Protestantism is false.

Sayonara Protestantism. RIP. Q E D

PS I have to admit, there is a lot of Protestant @God's Truth skubalon to sift through, even in the span from posts 136-217 which is where the entire final battle occurs. Word of warning! lol

Jesus told his disciples to have communion in "remembrance" of His sacrifice on the cross. That is how I see it today.

That's how Orthodoxy and Catholicism sees it. We also acknowledge that His sacrifice is eternal, which means everlasting. So Mass isn't a sacrifice over and over again, it is the same one sacrifice that is forever, which is what eternal means.
