comment What Christian groups believe sex was the original sin, and not disobedience?
I have edited the question to make it more on-topic for this site. I think it's a good question; there are a minority of Christian groups that hold (or held) this view. I believe the Shakers may have fallen into this category (but they don't exist any more, since they forbade sex).

@jlaverde: You're being voted down because your answer doesn't cite any official resources. It is, as written, only your opinion. And I would say, as I already have, that it is not backed up by scripture. There is no scripture I've ever seen that even mentions "corrupt wine," let alone defines in in the context of the Last Supper. The verses you do mention don't seem to have any relation to the subject at hand, except that some of them mention wine.

@jlaverde: Sex has also destroyed families, relationships, and lives. So has money. So I'm assuming you've sworn to live a life of celibacy and poverty?

@jlaverde: You're still making a jump. This concept of "corrupt wine" is not found in scripture. I'm not saying there aren't groups who hold this view--I would just like you to tell me who they are.

Do you have a reference to the trend changing in the U.S. around the Prohibition era? It sounds quite reasonable to me, but I'd be curious to read more about it.

Most protestants I've ever met use both terms Communion and the Lord's Supper.

comment Why do many churches use grape juice in communion?
blood of Jesus cannot be symbolized with corrupted wine According to whom? The unleavened bread concept goes back to the passover celebration, when leaven was not allowed in the home during passover. There was no such rule regarding wine--if there had been, Jesus would not have used wine at the last supper (which was also a passover meal). So this line of reasoning I find to be rather incredible. But if it's accepted by some specific church group, that should be stated in the answer.

comment Do any denominations object to writing/ saying “the god” instead of “God”?
Out of curiosity, why are you asking? Is there a specific doubt you're trying to address? Or simply idle curiosity?
