The Real Presence: Vortex

Here's another great message about our Faith from "The Vortex". Here's the script, followed by the video.

At the end of the day, when the lights are turned out and all is done, the ONE thing that really separates Catholics and Protestants in this: The Catholic teaching of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

And to be clear, the Catholic Church holds and professes that Jesus Christ the Second
Person of the Holy Trinity is really truly and substantially present, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, under the appearance of bread of wine. In short, what our eyes behold as bread and wine are not bread and wine at all, but are in fact Jesus Christ personally.

It is from this solitary fact that practically every other reality of the Church flows. The papacy, the priesthood, the Mass, Confession, etc. To borrow a poor analogy from the poker game “Texas Hold ‘em”, this is the one teaching in which the Church is “All In”.
Either that host and chalice are Jesus Christ or they are not...period. If they are, then God comes down from Heaven at every Catholic Mass and makes Himself personally present, keeping His promise: “I will not leave you orphans, I will come back to you.”

If what appears to be bread and wine are nothing more than JUST bread and wine, then the Catholic Church is great big fa├žade invented by deceivers for idiots. There can be no other choice than these two options.

It either is…or it isn’t.

We produced a special episode of the flagship show The One True Faith dealing with this express issue. It normally sits on the premium site of the website here, meaning you need a subscription to watch it. But for the next few days we are going to make it available for free. All you need to do is click on the link on the page here.

All Catholic Teaching revolves around this ONE absolutely critical issue; it is the BURNING issue of the faith. If you are Catholic and haven’t heard this before or thought deeply enough on it, please take the time to view the show.

If you aren’t Catholic, or are thinking about becoming Catholic, this is the one single issue you need to stop to consider and make a decision about.

The heart of the Faith is simple, because God is simple. Just as the world must stop to consider the simple question of God – either he exists or he doesn’t – so too this simple question must be answered…it is or it isn’t.
