    Eating and Drinking Damnation

    “Whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.” He will be in the condition of the men who crucified Christ, not seeing in Him the Lord of glory. What does he who eats unworthily bring upon himself? The answer follows: “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself.” And how is it that one eats and drinks unworthily? By “not discerning the Lord’s body.” How can one discern the Lord’s body, and thus avoid eating and drinking unworthily?—By faith; “He that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith; for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” And how can one eat by faith?—Easily enough; he has only to believe the words of Christ: “This is My body.” It is faith that gives discernment. If we believe the words of Scripture, we shall have no difficulty in seeing the body of Christ, who is the power of God, in the gifts which He bestows on us to keep us in life.EVCO 255.2
