Communion, or Eucharist, is a Christian sacrament that
reenacts the Last Supper. The elements of communion recall the
Lord's bodily sacrifice. The bread represents his broken body; the
wine represents his blood. In Christian practice, communion is not
optional. It is required. Jesus Christ issues this commandment:

This do in remembrance of me.

Why is it important to take communion? The Bible provides the
answer:

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do
shew the Lord's death till he come.

In other words, Christians take communion to keep Christ's
suffering and sacrifice in our minds. It is a critically important
practice.

What happens if communion becomes routine or ritualistic?
Again, the Bible is our resource:

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and
drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's
body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you,
and many sleep.

When the Bible says that many sleep, it means that many have
died. In this context, it is saying that they became weak, or sick,
or even died because they took communion irreverently, failing to
recognize its meaning.

That was then … and this is now:

Dr. Fauci seems to be at odds with the Bible. Whereas the Bible
suggests that taking communion in the wrong frame of mind will
lead to illness or even death, Dr. Fauci believes that taking
communion at all will lead to illness or death.

Now we learn that the Supreme Court sides with the Doctor's
recommendations.
This means that the highest court has ruled
the government greater than its governing constitution. The free
exercise of religion is no longer guaranteed in the United States. A
state government may now eliminate church services or any
sacrament deemed unhealthy.

Ponders Baptist Church is completely online. In the past we have
recommended attending a local church for the sacraments of
baptism and communion. Equally important is the Christian
fellowship experienced at the local church. The purpose of
Ponders is to convince skeptics of the reality of God, the Bible,
and the identity of Messiah Jesus. We want you to attend a
physical church, but recognize that some people aren't ready, yet.

Don't wait much longer. The opportunity to experience the Lord's
Supper is not as readily available as it has been. Expect this trend
to continue.
