on a sin... and communion (Part I)


dilemma! or not... when you sin and you know it's a sin it's different from when you sin and you didn't know if it was sin and also different from when you sin and you weren't sure it was sin... so in which category am i in?... the latter i'm afeared on this current dilemma item.

And what is sin? In this day and age the lines between right and wring get so blurred and logic is sometimes used to present an argument against doing what is right, we do love to rationalise don't we? if one is not sure if something is sin what does one do? in my case i asked around a bit but not enough, just enough for me to do the something... and then only after asking around enough or sufficiently i find 'tis been a sin all along, so what to do? stop of course that's a given (i'd hope), repent and do better...

so what is the sin? receiving communion in a church that ain't catholic, i remember how huge it seemed on day one then you let people talk to you and one ratiionalises and the deed loses it's 'horror aura' and becomes less sinister... but that niggling that came from God never left me, it just didn't gel with my spirit you know. and so i researched some more and was led to the catholic on-line forum and asked my question and i am getting 'educated'... no better word for it... so watch this space and i will give more info as i get it... or just go to the discussion, click here...

some may be thinking what's wrong with receiving communion in another church, we are all Christian and we all want to be united spiritually in the body of Christ don't we? I get that if we believe different then we are not in communion anyway, as a catholic i believe the Eucharist is the true body and blood of Christ in every essence except our physical experience of it. This is something i really need to study and pray for discernment on, and there is so much informtaion i have to do a lot of sifting too, ok so lets winnow...
