Subject: What's At Stake?


Quoting from the July 13 segment of Issues, Etc. with Dr. David Scaer discussing the Lord's Supper:

Host Todd Wilken:

"What's at stake in these differences over the Lord's Supper among Christians?"

Guest Dr. David Scaer:

"What's at stake is that, what is at stake is Christianity itself, because if the position that the bread cannot be the body of Christ is allowed to stand, then the next step is that the body of Jesus cannot embrace the Son of God completely, and taking that to its logical conclusion you end up with Unitarianism or deism. This is exactly what happened to Puritan theology in New England which began in the 1600s, the 1700s. That morphed into Unitarianism very easily, and the emphasis then goes on, as soon as the emphasis goes on the sovereignty of God, the person of Jesus takes a second place, and basic, you change the whole nature of Christianity so it really isn't Christianity any more."
