Re: Presto Chango!

Brother Alan, Your arguments about the meaning of the two key passages—the Bread of Life Discourse and the Last Supper—are far from persuasive. You say that Jesus never explained that His words in John 6 were not literal, but He did do so, in John 6:63. You have tried to refute my point on this earl...

Re: Presto Chango!

Aquinas is supposed to be one of the premier Catholic theologians.
