Religious ignorance? – JAM

According to the November (2010) Christianity Today forty-five percent of Catholics do not know that their church teaches that the bread and wine in Communion become the actual and literal body and blood of Jesus Christ once it is blessed by the priest. There is an alarming degree of belief ignorance in religion these days. As long as someone gives lip service to God, grace and love, a lot of us are happy to live and let live. But while a novice is excused for ignorance, there is no excuse for those who have been Christians for decades. Certainly the Lord is not satisfied. Jesus said, “If you continue in me word, you are my disciples indeed and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
