There is no more need for me to bring solid proof of what the scripture says than for you. Nor am insisting that someone believe the way that I do. We are having a discussion.
It is interesting that you speak of God not needing to bifurcate himself and points to the influence of Platonic logic being applied to scripture in order to understand scripture.
This has been an error in theology since the beginning, applying human systems of thought to the Holy word of God. This is nothing more than trying to define God by limits of our understanding and experience even though He tells us that His THOUGHTS and WAYS are higher than ours.
It is easy to justify the form of partaking as simply and only a remembrance and then explain away any miraculous act being carried out simultaneously. One can be understood by human reason the other, body and blood cannot. It cannot because form isn’t definitive. To say that it must be is to say that God and all of Heaven is perfectly reflected by earthly entities.
There well may be, and I believe that there is, a point of tension that takes place in the elements. How is it accomplished? The human mind cannot and does not understand it because it has nothing to compare it to. It is received in faith which is the ongoing nature of our life in Christ.
Maybe you can prove that Christ, in some way beyond our comprehension, is NOT present.
I agree with much of what you said, and yes..we cannot/should not apply the Socratic method to solve spiritual
questions,but I must disagree with your last sentence.
I did not say that Jesus is NOT present, in fact I employed scripture to prove he IS present !
For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.” (Matt 18:20)
Still, as I have said over and over, each an believe as he wishes, whether governed by the Bible or tradition.
I doubt it will seriously affect his/her standing in relation to eternal life...in other words,..no deal breaker.
More important in my estimation, is his/her Christian walk and employment of the great commission..
