Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 1244; “The ordinance of the Sacrament is administered by “those having authority”-that is, by priesthood bearers. According to modern revelation, priests in the Aaronic Priesthood and any Melchizedek Priesthood holder may officiate at the Sacrament table; in general practice, the table is prepared by teachers in the Aaronic Priesthood, and the bread and water are blessed by priests and passed to the members of the Church by deacons in the same priesthood.”
Exodus 13:3; “And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.”
Luke 22:20; “Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”
This is wrong in so many ways…
In the Mormon Church “those having authority” means that a 12 year old boy is administering the Lord’s Supper – something which should floor all who call themselves a Christian. A 12 year old has more authority in Mormonism than I do; a 46 year old female.
Bread and water. What can a person say to this? It’s indefensible. The Mormons use the everyday grocery store bread (usually Wonderbread) and tap water as tokens for the Lord’s Supper – Sacrament, or as Christians call it; Communion.
