The Doctrine of the Lord's Supper Introduction I believe that no doctrine inside Christianity was as arguably and problematic as the doctrine of the Lord's Supper (Eucharistic). Not just that century-old fighting's is certainly going on around the written text: "That is my own body" (1.Cor.11:24) between Roman Catholics and Protestants, but there is nonconformity about the question among Protestants themselves. The first notification of the Lord's Supper set a division among Christ's disciples, because they were shocked when Christ told them about the suffering that He must proceed through, so they said: “That is a difficult teaching. Who can acknowledge it?” (John 6,60). The reason for this fighting is founded on a query of understanding the type of Christ's existence in bread and wines as in understanding the type of Christ body, the Church. Those fighting became therefore extreme that the idea of Eschaton in the Lord's Supper (Until he comes, 1.Cor. 11, 26), i.e. the bond of the Lord's Supper and the Kingdom of God that may come, was forgotten totally. And tendency of neglecting the eschatological idea of Lord's Supper wouldn't normally be so important if it could not have because of its consequences just how and oftness of its maintenance, the religiousness of existence and believers of a Church and its own missionary orientation. In this paper we won't discuss the questions of Christ's existence in the sights of bread and wine through the Lord's Supper and we'll not discuss Luther's, Calvin's or Zwingli's view of Lord's Supper. We won't establish it nor will we talk about how we should take part in it often. In this paper we assume that the Lord's Supper for most Christians will not implicate the eschatological concept (which guides the Church and its own believers to the Heavenly Kingdom) and has became something static and local. The Lord's Supper is definitely always discussed by its meaning previously, not its future. It's been forgotten (as the next Vatican Council says) that “The Lord's Supper (Eucharistic) may be the wellspring and the crown of most Christian lifestyle, and without it the Church wouldn't normally exist nor be alive” because she wouldn't have got its purpose, and that's eternity.
