(3) 聖餐聖事 Sacrament: Eucharist (8) 與其他教會的不同 Differences: Other Churches

Q & A 為什麼東正教無法讓天主教或新教徒領取聖餐呢(1)? Can Catholics and Protestants receive Orthodox’s Holy Communion?

聖餐是屬於教會特有的特色也是最主要的,聖餐就是教會. To receive the holy communion is the fruit of being a member of the church. 領受聖餐的結果是成為教會的成員。 其意義為: Which means 1. to believe correctly, 相信正確地 2. have the same faith. 有同樣信念 3. have a life as possible as clean an forgiven. 擁有可以被寬恕與潔淨的生命 Unfortunately we are not one church.不幸的是我們現在所處的教會並不是合一的 Many Protestants do not believe that the holy communion is the body and blood of Jesus Christ, but they think this is a symbol (we see how they practice the Eucharist in their churches) or others are notsure

領受聖餐的結果是成為教會的成員。

 

 

其意義為:

 

 

Which means

 

 

1. to believe correctly, 相信正確地

 

 

2. have the same faith. 有同樣信念

 

 

3. have a life as possible as clean an forgiven. 擁有可以被寬恕與潔淨的生命

 

 

Unfortunately we are not one church.不幸的是我們現在所處的教會並不是合一的

 

 

Many Protestants do not believe that the holy communion is the body and blood of Jesus Christ, but they think this is a symbol (we see how they practice the Eucharist in their churches) or others are notsure
what it is. But we do believe this is Jesus body and blood.

許多新教徒不相信聖餐是耶穌基督的身體和血液,但是他們認為這是只是象徵性的(我們也看到他們在教會裡如何來實踐聖餐) 有些信徒也不敢肯定或不確定甚至不知道所領受的是什麼(是象徵性或真實的聖體血)。但東正教信徒相信也知道這是耶穌身體和寶血.

 

 

For our catholic brothers , i feel really deep pain that i am not allowed to give them the holy communion, because, their church is separated from us, because of dogmatic reasons. The holy communion is
thechurch, is not just a blessing.

對於天主教我們的弟兄,我深深的感到傷痛然而我是不被允許讓他們領受聖餐,其原因是天主教是從東正教分裂分去的,因為教義不同的原因,並且我們知道聖餐就是教會,聖餐並不僅是只有祝福.

 

 

The unity of the church is not to sign some paper but to celebrate liturgy together. The same happens if some orthodox separates bishop or priest for personal reasons (Protestants understand this because
very easy create 獨立的教會 ) and creates his own church. The faith is same, but he split thebody of Jesus. the members of this church , even they ‘believe ‘ orthodox they are not allowed to receive the holy
communion

教會的合一不單是簽屬一些文件達成協議,而是能夠一起舉行聖禮儀,這樣的事情同樣也發生在東正教,如果東正教徒與主教或與祭司因為他個人的原因分離(新教徒對教會的認知既是如此,因此非常容易開創出獨立的教會)並且開創他自己個人的教會,關於信仰也是如此開創出自己的新理念,因而他就從耶穌的身體分裂出去,這教會的信徒,即使他們
宣稱“相信”東正教,他們還是不被允許領受聖餐.

 

 

Also for some believer to receive the holy communion must receive the forgiveness of sins. Sins we commit continuously. And nobody is without sin. We receive the forgiveness from the church, and not directlyindividually
from god, as we receive the baptism , the holy communion not directly and individually from god to our homes, but in the church. protestants do not accept the sacrament of forgiveness, other sacraments too.

東正教徒領受聖餐前並須告解接受寬恕罪行,我們總是活在罪中,沒有一個人是沒有罪的,我們是從教會中領受赦罪,而不是神直接從天上赦免我們的罪,正如我們受洗領受聖餐,並不是神直接給你個人或到你家來完成這些聖事,這些聖事必須透過教會,新教並不接受寬恕告解聖事,還有教會其他聖事.

 

 

We believe to the same god, yes but some of our brothers of other churches they have some wrong concepts of faith.

事實上我們相信的並不是同一位上帝.(有些新教不相信三位一體神,甚至有教會說聖靈就是基督,有些錯誤的信仰是大公會議所譴責異端的信仰 ………….等等)

 

 

Many Protestants believe wrongly about the Holy trinity, some even they do not know about this. and Catholics believe wrongly about the holy spirit. our website tries to explain those things because many
people , specially Chinese do not have all the resources for the christian faith .

很多新教徒對三位一體的信仰是錯誤的,甚至有些人不知道三位一體,天主教對聖靈的認知是錯誤的,我們的網站也試著以教會歷史從聖經來解釋,因為中國人或台灣人並沒有信仰這方面全部的資源.

 

And finally , faith is not only a belief, is mainly the participation in the church, in the body of Jesus Christ, not a philosophical activity of mind

最後,信仰並非只是一種信念,最主要的是參與教會,參與在耶穌基督的身體之中,而非只是心智的哲學活動。

 

We pray to come one day that all our brothers who now are separated from our church, will reunite to the

我祈禱有一日所有的弟兄也就是從教會分離出去的,將會有回歸的一天,也就是教會合一,教會中讀的信經:

我信獨一無二、至聖、至公、宗徒所傳下來的教會。

 

, which is the orthodox church, and we really suffer as long as weare separated.

這就是東正教我們感到痛心與痛苦之處因教會的分裂.
