Hi, guys —
Concerning John chapter 6, I recently read that eating means coming to Him and drinking means believing on Him. They stated he who comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes in Me shall never thirst, implying Jesus was speaking in a spiritual sense.
After reading this, I find it difficult to understand the text in John literally. I do believe in the literal sense but am lacking assurances. I know the word flesh and blood is involved with real drink and real food.
This refutation has blinded me, not verse for verse, but John chapter 6 as a whole as to when some of His disciples departed. I know Jesus could not mean his flesh profiteth nothing as He is the life of the world, although another refutation I read was the sacrifice hadn't taken place yet and that Jesus was localized; that his words were a metaphor of the starting verse thou shall not hunger or thirst.
I have had a terrible time trying to figure this out and I know I cannot enter Heaven in a blind state.
Thank you dearly,
