What is the meaning of the phrase “of your own make” in D&C 89:6. Does this mean that wine can be used for the sacrament as long as it is “of our own make?”




I think you are right. As long as the wine is made by members for the purpose of the Sacrament, I doubt Christ would find any reason to object. I don’t think it will ever happen though. You see, the Lord also explained that any available liquid suitable for drinking is acceptable as a symbol of his blood, whether it’s a soft-drink, sports drink, etc.

Mormon Church SacramentThe instruction followed today is that water is to be used for the sacramental symbol. This is another reason I doubt we’ll see any sacramental wine on Sunday in the LDS church. There is simply no doctrinal need for it according to the revelations we have received from Christ himself.
