Wine or Grape Juice: What Should We Serve In Communion?

host Adriel Sanchez aired August 18, 2022

Episode 1035 Show Notes 

From the Show

This is a meal of celebration, a gift that God gives to us to be received by faith—the body and blood of his Son, Jesus. In 1 Corinthians 10, Paul calls this meal a close fellowship, a communion, with Jesus. And it’s a picture of the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Wine or Grape Juice: What Should We Serve In Communion?

Questions in this Episode

  1. Is prayer pointless if God knows everything?
  2. Do you believe that wine should be served at communion? I’ve been in 4 Christian protestant churches where only grape juice is served because they don’t believe Jesus would’ve consumed alcohol. I believe Jesus did have wine. Also if wine is served, what about young people taking communion?
  3. Why isn’t church more like a Bible study where we can ask questions?
  4. Why do so many Christians speak with condescension towards non-believers?
  5. Is baptism essential for salvation?
