sacramental union


Eucharistic theology? anglican/rc/other?

There is indeed a Lutheran eucharistic theology. That is the “sacramental union.” That is, when one receives the bread and wine of Holy Communion they are also receiving the body and blood of Christ–physically. In addition, through faith one receives the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. For those without faith who receive it, they receive the body and blood, but to their judgment.
