Another Jesus: The Eucharistic Jesus and the New Evangelization

Lighthouse Trails Publishing, 2007, 185 pages
Roman Catholics are taught their priests change bread wafers and wine into the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ at every mass. The priests then allegedly offer up their victim as a sacrifice to God the Father for the sins of the attendees and those mentioned. Some of the participants, those allegedly with no stain of mortal sin on their souls, line up to receive a “consecrated” wafer into their mouths so that they can eat Jesus. During the fifteen minutes the host is acted upon by their stomach’s digestive acids, the recipients allegedly receive graces enabling them to avoid committing mortal sins in the future.
In this book, Christian apologist, Roger Oakland, looks at all aspects of the sacrament of the eucharist, the central tenet of the Catholic religion. Catholics pity their separated brethren because they alone claim to have the “real presence” of Jesus in their consecrated bread wafers. Evangelical Christians who think Catholicism is a genuine form of Christianity, albeit with a lot of quirky ritualism, would find this book informative.
Trying to merit your way into Heaven by perfectly obeying the Ten Commandments is impossible. We break God’s laws every single day. Those who claim they have no mortal sin on their souls might delude themselves but they don’t deceive God who sees every filthy thought and motive. But Jesus Christ, God the Son, came to this world and died on the cross for your sins. He rose from the grave, conquering sin and death, and offers eternal life and fellowship with God to all those who accept Him as Savior by faith. Taking a wafer into your mouth won’t help you. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior by faith.
“Nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified.” – Galatians 2:16
