Essentials of Reformed Doctrine: Lesson 27 (“Lord's Supper")

Essentials of Reformed Doctrine is a systematic doctrine class aimed at older teenagers, but adapted in Ireland for adults who want to learn all the doctrines of Christianity.

Lesson 27 is "The Lord's Supper."

The main subjects covered in this Lesson are:

Part 1: The sign and seal of the Lord's Supper; a real partaking by faith.

Part 2: False views on the presence of Christ in the Supper (Zwinglianism, transubstantiation, consubstantiation); Reformed objections to the Roman Catholic "Mass."

The LRF runs an adult reformed doctrine class in which we work through the Essentials of Reformed Doctrine catechism booklet published by the PRCA.

Below you will find the lesson outlines based on Lesson 27.

Each lesson outline comes as a handy PDF formatted to be printed as a single double-sided page with narrow margins. Download the attachments below.

No Such Thing As The Perfect Church ...

No Such Thing As The Perfect Church ...

"But there is no such thing as a perfect  church!"

Let's face it, churches in Europe, and in Ireland in particular are very weak. Many of them are false. Many of them teach false doctrine. Many of them teach confusing mixtures of doctrine. Many of them teach no doctrine at all. In many of them the sacraments are corrupted, and there has been no church discipline for generations.

Few deny this charge who look objectively and dispassionately at the situation.

Why Attend Our Church?

Why Attend Our Church?

There are different reasons why a person might attend a particular church.

Some attend a church out of tradition. "I have always attended here. My parents attended here. So I will attend here."

Others attend a church because it is close by, perhaps in the same village, town or city, or within easy driving distance. The key word is "convenience."

Others attend a church because the people are friendly and their friends are there, and they "feel comfortable" there.
