McLelland on Vermigli’s Sacramental Theology

March 5, 2010

The Holy Spirit is the Vicar of Christ, and by definition excludes a corporeal presence of the humanity of Christ upon the earth during the age in between the Advents of Christ. For that humanity is a glorified humanity: its substantial presence upon this sinful earth must necessitate judgment and change, and cannot be replaced by a corporeal presence in the Eucharist.

Joseph C. McLelland, The Visible Words of God (Grand Rapids: MI, Wm. B. Eerdman’s Publishing Company, 1957), 117.
