The Christian Seder Meal: A Violation of the 1st Commandment

Do you know the meaning behind these symbols?
I hear this way too frequently, "We're celebrating with the having a seder meal." If you attempt to tell such confused, but often pious Catholics, they get very defensive saying that they have done it before, or other people they know and respect do it, or even that their church pastor encourages this.  They may even infer that you are being prejudiced against the Jews.

Here's a good, concise response which spells it all out:

Here's also an interesting article that speaks of all the disappointed Catholics from one parish that celebrated the seder (insert raised eyebrows here) meal for 20 years.  The parish priest and bishop ADMIT that this was meant not to be a teaching instrument but an actual religious ceremony.  The parish had received letters from Jews saying that this was offensive to them.  Do you want to know why?   Catholics celebrating the seder meant to them that these people, ignorant of the significance of the seder, were using it in the opposite way to say that Jesus was the Messiah.   Besides the fact that this is pure irony, the seder meal is blasphemous.

Seder Meals Violate the 1st Commandment

It is blaphemous to promote the Seder Meal because it is the celebration of the Messiah not yet come.  That is NOT what Catholics celebrate in Lent.  We celebrate the Messiah that hasn't yet come LITURGICALLY, which is not the same as denying that Christ has come, in fact.  This very form of worship of the Seder Meal represents the denial of Christ coming and hinges upon still being in the desert in reality, and not spiritually.  They do not practice this believe that they are in a spiritual need for a greater devotion to Christ, but rather, it essentially denies him as the Messiah.
