| The Worship of The Eucharist

The Catechism of the Catholic Church makes the assumption that the man-made bread of the Eucharist has become Divine. This being the case, the Catholic Church teaches that the Eucharist is worthy of the same respect and adoration due God. This tightly held belief extends beyond the walls of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Catechism goes as far as stating that the whole world needs to participate in Eucharistic worship. This Catholic teaching, that the True God has been reincarnated into an object that looks like bread made by human hands, is a dangerous assumption. The Catechism clearly mandates Eucharistic worship, whereas, the Bible strictly forbids it.

The Catechism Says:
The Bible Says

Para 1378 Worship of the Eucharist. In the liturgy of the Mass we express our faith in the real presence of Christ under the species of bread and wine by, among other ways, genuflecting or bowing deeply as a sign of adoration of the Lord. "The Catholic Church has always offered and still offers to the sacrament of the Eucharist the cult of adoration, not only during Mass, but also outside of it, reserving the consecrated hosts with the utmost care, exposing them to the solemn veneration of the faithful, and carrying them in procession.


Deuteronomy 4:13, 15-16 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even Ten Commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake...Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure

 

Para 1380 The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship

 

Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Para 1379 the Church became conscious of the meaning of silent adoration of the Lord present under the Eucharistic species. It is for this reason that the tabernacle should be located in an especially worthy place in the church and should be constructed in such a way that it emphasizes and manifests the truth of the real presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

 


John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

The Scripture clearly identifies that God is Holy and He alone is worthy of our worship. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee Revelation 15:4

The Catechisms physically literal interpretation of Scripture leads to idolatry. According to the Bible, we must not give worship to any false god or idol, meaning anything man-made (as an image) to represent God. In the Old Testament, Aaron fell into this same grave error of idolatry, when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, up, make us gods, which shall go before us Aaron made the golden calf as a medium through which the Israelites were to worship God. "These be thy gods, O Israel... he states. As physically literal as Aaron and the people of Israel were, they did not imagine that this image was itself a god. Rather, they made the image a representation of the true God, whom they intended to worship in and through the image. This is idolatry. It is the same mistake the Church of Rome makes at every Mass.

The true worship of God ought to be in spirit and truth, as the Lord proclaimed, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. This worship brings true peace and true Christian living. Worship of the Eucharist brings about the wrath of God as promised in His Word. God looks upon those who practice idolatry as haters of Him, though they pretend to love Him. He will judge their iniquity. We are told that God is One, who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments (Ex. 34:7b).

We remember the simple Word of the Lord in Mark 13:21, if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not. To command worship of the Eucharist is idolatry and idolatry is spiritual adultery. Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry 1Co 10:14.
