Is Communion Bread allowed to be eaten by everyone?


“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” [Matthew 26:26-29]

“In other words, in vision, they don't even believe in such a thing. And in judgment they say, "Oh, as long as you join the church, it's all right." And what have we got? A bunch of drunks. Watch what the prophet said; there's God's witness. “For all tables are full of filthiness, of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no clean place.” No place is clean; the tables. Why, they go in, drunkards and harlots, and--and take a piece of light bread and cut it up, and make communion, where the clean and the unclean eat together: vomits, the tables are full of vomit.” [The Testimony Of A True Witness, Jeffersonville, IN 61-1105]

“If Baal is a round god... Now, catch this word by word, and you'll get the rest, the ending of this message. God was a round god, a sun god. They had great big brass plates that would reflect the sun and look like fire. And then the bread that Jeremiah said here that they... The women would bake these cakes unto Baal, that it was made round like the sun. Well, then it was laid upon the altar, the pagan altar for the communion, and made round like the sun or like the moon, because it was the sun god or the moon god.” [Christianity Versus Idolatry, Jeffersonville, IN 61-1217]

“I was here last Sunday night and spoke on the subject of Communion to the... before the communion service. Communion is not taking bread, "commune" means "talk to, commune back, talk with someone." [Oneness 62-0211]

“First communion, confirmed to the church.” Nonsense! But that's what they did; that's what the cankerworm did. It took away the Spirit and give them a piece of bread, some bread that some priest made, or some nun, or something. That's what they did; that's exactly right. Go ask now; go looking back in history and see if it isn't right. And you let that thing be shoved down your throat? Not only them Catholics, but you Protestants, a many of you, same thing. All right, there's what's they did. All right.” [The Restoration Of The Bride Tree, Jeffersonville, IN 62-0422]

“Hear all the young men shouting and praising the Lord. Here comes Abraham, and Who come out to meet him? Melchisedec, King of Salem. And look what they did. After the battle was over, they could set down and take the bread and wine. The King brought out bread and wine. Why did He do it? After the battle was over, after the victory was won, then they could set down and take the communion together, talk with each other and eat the communion together. Oh, that's what God wants His children to do tonight.” [Possessing All Things, Jeffersonville, IN 62-0506]


“I'm convinced that Chicago has been shook, not the cannon fodder out here, these buildings, and up and down the street these women dressed immorally, and these men carrying on, drunks and carry... I going to church, and taking old light bread, loaf bread, making kosher out of it; I don't believe in that stuff. Belching whiskey and stuff on their breath, and then go out and take communion and their name on some church book, and call themselves a Christian; I don't believe that.” [Convinced And Then Concerned, Chicago, IL 62-0521]

“Luther's age, it was a great age. He saw the faulty of the Catholic church, saw the communion. That, that young priest, he saw that that was wrong, "it wasn't the literal body of Christ," it was a piece of bread that--that they had blessed. And he saw that, "the wine wasn't the literal Blood," but it represented the Blood. So he protested the thing because the hour of that time was there. And no matter how many priests they had, and whatever more they had, God got a hold of a man that could make the light shine. Amen. He accepted, "Justification by faith," and he made the light of the Lutheran age shine. After that come along, that lived its time out.” [Turn On The Light, Phoenix, AZ 64-0125]

“Martin Luther, he was a nut to the Catholic church. See? Could you imagine a priest that had--had throwed his, all of his teachings, away, of the church, and refused to give this communion because the church said, "It is the body of Christ"? And he knowed he... the--the nuns and them had made that kosher up in there. He--he knew that wasn't Christ. That was a piece of bread, see, a little sugar wafer. And he knew that, that that wine was no literal Blood of Christ. It only represented It. So, he--he--he threw it down, in--in his--his honest conviction, and he wanted nothing more to do with it. See? He--he--he was through with it.” [The Oddball, Prescott, AZ 64-0531]

“Martin Luther, that little German priest, that packing the communion one day, threw it down on the steps, and said, "This is not the body of Jesus Christ. This is only bread that's been made back there." And he declared, that, "The just shall live by faith." He was a nut, to the Catholic church. They could have assassinated him for that, but, he was a nut, and they just let him alone. But, he become a nut, to that generation.” [The Oddball, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0614E]

“Now, 23rd verse of the 11th chapter of I Corinthians, listen at Paul now. Now remember, and keep this in mind, Galatians 1:8, "If we or an angel from heaven preaches any other gospel unto you," than this Gospel that he had preached, "let him be accursed." See? “For I have received of the Lord that which I also delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had gave thanks, he brake it,... said, Take and eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.” Now, let me stop right here, to say: but taking the body of the Lord Jesus Christ in this communion, does not mean that that communion is the literal body of Christ. That's Catholic. I do not believe that that's right. I believe it's only an ordinance that God made with us, see, it isn't the actual body. It's... Now, it's really a little piece of kosher bread. It's just an ordinance.” [Communion, Tucson, AZ 65-1212]
