With your permission, I am going to interrupt the theme we have been working on so far. I am doing this especially for those readers who might belong or have belonged to Christian Communities.
When I say Christian Communities, I am referring to those across denominational divides.
You will notice that in the previous chapters I have made no mention of two practices that the greater majority of these communities hold fast. These are ‘Baptism’ and ‘Holy Communion’ (or ‘Breaking of Bread’ as it is often called).
My reason for not mentioning these topics before, is simply that they are ‘ceremonial practices’ that will in nowise affect your day-to-day spiritual life here on this earth and certainly never have any influence on your eternal future. On this basis, let us get some understanding on these issues.
