Some of you may be more familiar with this criticism than I am, but I'd like to hear your input on it. While reading a blog on Gene Veith's website ( Cultural engagement requires the Sacrament ), I came across the comment of a former Presbyterian who argued that the Westminster Catechism understanding of the Lord's Supper is quite "gnostic" in its approach, which in turn turned him to Lutheranism. He referenced #175 in the Larger Catechism to underscore his point. Now, I do not have a copy of the Cathechism on hand, so I don't know what the specifics of that particular Catechism question state, but that's the first time I've ever heard of Calvinism and Evangelicalism being accused of a "gnostic" approach to the Lord's Supper. Is this something you've heard before from others?
