Christ being perpetually sacrificed. Instead, Scripture speaks of a table, a minister, the elements as signs of Christ's body and blood (refer to the previous five points of explanation regarding this matter), and of Jesus' one and only sacrifice (see the examples quoted in the box below).


For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrfice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this He did once, when He offered up Himself.

-Hebrews 7:26-27

By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
By this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.

-Hebrews 10:10-12

For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

-Hebrews 10:14

Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

-Hebrews 9:25-28

The Roman Catholic Mass denies the one and only sacrifice of Jesus Christ as being all-sufficient for salvation.

2. It is a lie -As previously explained, the Eucharist not only denies and adds to the teachings of Scripture, but it also proclaims a change of elements to be true which contradicts every employment of our senses.

3. It is idolatry -To adore, bow before, or worship any object as God (as the full Christ) is blatant idolatry. It flatly transgresses the Second Commandment which forbids the picturing of God by any physical object in heaven, earth, or sea, and the bowing down before it (see Exodus 20:4).

How does the Roman Catholic Eucharist continue to use the Old Testament ceremonial "shadows" of Christ's priesthood and sacrifice? Why is this not scriptural?
