    LS 11.17 18 I appeal now to the convictions of communicants [in the Lord' s Supper], and ask such persons whether they have not been occasionally conscious of a painful confusion of thought between the worship due to God and the commemoration due to Christ.
    LS 11.17 21 ...the service [the Lord's Supper] does not stand upon the basis of a voluntary act, but is imposed by authority. It is an expression of gratitude to Christ, enjoined by Christ.
    LS 11.17 22 [The Lord's Supper] is an expression of gratitude to Christ, enjoined by Christ. There is an endeavor to keep Jesus in mind, whilst yet the prayers are addressed to God.

    LS 11.18 1 ...our opinions differ much respecting the nature and offices of Christ...
    LS 11.18 13 I appeal, brethren, to your individual experience. In the moment when you make the least petition to God...do you not, in the very act, necessarily exclude all other beings from your thought? In that act... Jesus is no more present to your mind than your brother or your child.

    LS 11.19 20 If I believed [the Lord's Supper] was enjoined by Jesus on his disciples, and that he even contemplated making permanent this mode of commemoration...and yet on trial it was disagreeable to my own feelings, I should not adopt it.
