There is nothing like finding out that the author of your instruction manual is a receptionist…right in the middle of class. I was teaching my adult instruction class today using Oswald Ries’ What does the Bible Say? We were going through the section on the Nature of the Lord’s Supper, and there it was, in plain ink: We do not adore the bread and the wine. The body and blood of Christ are not present in the bread and wine until a communicant receives it. Ugh! Talk about an embarrassment. I had to explain that this is not the consensus of Luthern teaching. Rest assured–I will never use Riess again.
