How Can One Body Be Made Up of Separate Persons?


A family is made up of separate persons. Yet they’re all part of one big body.


They are people tied together by the flesh & blood that they share and the things they do regularly as a group. They are also bound together by the goals they hold in common and the leaders that guide them.


It’s the same with God’s Body.


Its members are tied together by The Flesh & Blood of Jesus That They Share (His Sacraments) and The Things They Do Regularly as a Group (His Ritual). They are also bound together by The Goals They Hold in Common (His Teachings & Rules) and The Leaders That Guide Them (His Priests).


This is why the Bible calls God’s Church “the house of God” (1 Timothy 3:15c PDRC) --- because a family lives together in the same house. And what better example than of a family tied together by sharing one flesh?
