Introduction

R.E. Coursework Miss O'sullivan Angela Okello11B A03 Task: How a Christian treats other people is more important than whether or not he/ she receives Holy Communion. Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer, showing that you have considered more than one point of view. (400 words) This statement can have two arguments.

People could agree with this statement because one of the two main commandments given by Jesus was "love thy neighbour as you love yourself". ...read more.

Middle

The Mafia go to church and receive Holy Communion. Their behaviour should be affected by receiving Holy Communion but it is not- they still go out and kill people. Being a Christian isn't only about receiving Holy Communion. When reading Marks Gospel, you will see that more of the stories in the Gospel relate to Jesus and his life (i.e. the way he treated people) more than it does to the last supper (i.e. Holy Communion). So maybe this suggests that the way you treat people is more important than receiving the Holy Communion. ...read more.

Conclusion

The Holy Communion reminds you of Jesus and the sacrifice he made for mankind; and if you are Roman Catholic, you will believe that you are actually receiving the body and blood of Christ (Transubstantiation) which will make it more important that you receive Holy Communion. After giving both sides of this argument, I cannot say that I agree with one side. I believe that the way in which you treat people is very important but that also receiving the Holy Communion is also very important. Especially as being a Catholic, it is important to me that I receive Holy Communion, but my family and friends are very important to me and so it's the way I treat them. ...read more.
