quod pro nobis traditum est

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Today is not a good anniversary . . .

in the history of Christianity. On August 17, 1525, Huldrych Zwingli published a book in which he stated his view that the bread and wine of the Eucharist were only symbols and not the Body and Blood of Christ.

This view, not held or taught by Luther and other Reformers, further fragmented the Church and has helped lead, in part, to the proliferation of denominations that we know today.
