This question, What did Jesus mean when He said we must “eat His flesh and drink His blood”? was closed by (moderator) Richard after he added this comment, "Please provide a doctrinal stance in order to facilitate interpretation."
I think I'm right in saying that this was at a time where "doctrinal stance" was in the ascendance here, as we were trying to work out more broadly what was on and off topic.
Anyway, I came across this today as I was just about to ask exactly this question!
This was after I have recently asked two other "Why Jesus" questions:
- Why did Jesus tell His disciples to buy a sword?
- Why does Jesus say “you will be put to death” and yet “not a hair of your head will perish”?
My point here is that currently we are being inconsistent. Either open them all (my preference) or close them all.
