Anybody else have the pleasure of going to church yesterday? How about Missouri Synod Lutheran? I always respect their communion rules, so I wasn’t too surprised when they said they were “closed”, which means you have to be confirmed in their tradition before you can eat the cracker. What I’d never heard before is that you should not take it “unworthily” or it may “cause you harm”. That was explained in the program in writing. A family member who was a pastor was sitting behind us and informed us that someone had once taken communion without the proper instructions, and died. Yes died. So, you now actually have to sign something, saying you believe in Satan and that Jesus will save you, before you can eat his literal flesh. “It’s for your protection”.
It sounded like an urban legend.
