This is truly sad, but first some back story. It has been 2 months since I got to read the Lutheran Liturgy mailing list. The last hot topic was the Perpetual Virginity of Marry (PVM). The confessions teach the PVM. But now the hot topic it looks like are Allergies and modifying the Eucharist. I find such a thought wrong. I for one am allergic to alcohol. But I would not dream of asking my Pastor to use non-alcoholic wine or grape juice. Why? Because if you do you just start to call into question the sureness of the Sacrament. The Sacrament as part of the Blessed Gospel is about assurance, how can I be assured of the Sacrament if we start to tamper with it, the only assurance that will come is if we do it they way that came down to use via the Holy Scriptures.
