The Law of Moses says that even if a miracle worker who knows the future suggests other Gods he is a fraud. If Jesus taught what Catholics say he taught about the Eucharist then he was a false prophet for he had them committing idolatry.
Jesus Christ said that the greatest commandment was to love God with all your powers ie in totality. We are to love God to that extent just because he commanded it. We therefore do not do it because it will be good for us or anybody else. We are to love our neighbour because God commanded it which means we do not love the neighbour for herself or himself but for God only. Love for God alone is expressed through doing his will for others. He wants us to do good for others but for his sake and not theirs at all. It makes us inhuman. Catholics cannot want the bread and wine to turn into a God like that. They would not really want to be nourished by him or to worship him in the form of bread and wine. What Catholics worship is a fantasy god. The Eucharist is idolatry.
The Eucharist undergoes no physical change - yet the Church says it is literally the body and blood of Jesus. Sounds like pretending to me? If it is not then there is no such thing as pretending. Besides even if the Eucharist is Jesus, we can still treat it as a substitute for him. It depends on our disposition. The man who loves just his wife's beauty does not have a genuine relationship with her. Yet her beauty is more "her" than the bread is Jesus.
God is said to be present everywhere. But he is not present everywhere in the relationship sense. This presence for Catholics is to be found in the Eucharist. When the Catholic prays, he practices his relationship with God. He is living that relationship. Thus it follows that all Catholic prayers are at least implicitly directed towards the Eucharist. If it is idolatry, then the Catholic Church does not worship God. It is the worst idolatry of all. They believe in God. But they pretend bread and wine are God and treat them accordingly. That is defiance of God.
The Church says that we transubstantiate the food and drink we consume into our own flesh and blood. But the Catholic doctrine would imply that it is only the accidents that feed us not the substance! You can honestly say then that you have never had water in your life!
I could be present in the Eucharist and not be aware of it. How does Jesus then stop his presence in the Eucharist from being as mechanical as that? The Church would argue that the emotional bond between us and Jesus improves and we respond better in obedience and holiness to his spirit living in us. But you don't need his body in the form of bread for that. Indeed it would be a hindrance. Anything unnecessary would be simply the waste of energy that should be spent on spiritual union.
Jesus simply being there physically means nothing. Or do you want to hold that he makes the host some kind of sense organ where he sees and hears and smells us and suffers the pain as the host melts in our mouths or is chewed up? That would mean he is present in his senses which is more meaningful than just being there.
The Catholics have fooled the Protestants and Muslims into being indifferent to the idolatry. They say, "Even if the bread and wine are not Jesus we intend to adore him not bread and wine. That is why our worship should be respected." But the worshippers of false gods intended by implication to honour the real gods. They thought that if the worship was lavished on the wrong gods the real gods would understand and accept the worship.
Also, even if the worship should be respected it should not be encouraged. It is not fair to ask Muslims and Protestants to encourage and even praise it.
If somebody honoured your picture or statue even though you were standing beside them you would see that they are only fooling themselves that it is you they intend to honour. Catholics literally do that for they believe Jesus is invisibly with the Church until the end of time and yet they turn to statues and pictures.
How does a Catholic prove that he is not intending to worship an image of Jesus but Jesus himself by using the image? Most Catholics would not have the knowledge to say, "I honour the saint with the image just like you honour your wife by kissing her photo." When they don't understand what they are supposed to be doing they are undeniably idolaters . Human nature has a tendency towards idolatry so it should be a case of guilty until proven innocent. Proving the innocence is never possible.
If you are a little girl playing with your doll, you have to get the feeling that it is transubstantiated into a living being. The Catholics are literally pretending that bread and wine are Jesus Christ. In so far as you carry a wafer about in procession and bow before it you are benefiting it. If it is not Jesus then it is idolatry.
God said in his Bible that it is a sin to bow before and serve other gods and that he visits the sins of the father on several generations of descendants. This in context would refer primarily to idolatry. So it brings bad luck on your children and great grandchildren and great great and so on....
The Catholics say priests can turn bread into God. If God comes first then you have to be 100 % sure the wafer is God. But you can’t be as sure as possible and the Church even admits that, for a priest might consecrate invalidly. Catholicism is blasphemy.

The Bible might say bread and wine will become Jesus but it never says this meal has been made available yet. The Mass is therefore illegitimate and invalid for it claims to be this meal.

John 6 where Jesus says that his flesh is real food and his blood real drink is talking long before the last supper.  He was not food and drink at that time.  One minute he symbolises himself as bread.  But the Eucharist symbolises bread as Jesus.  The chapter at best is confusing and cannot be used to prove that this change will happen.

Paul said that Jesus said the cup was the new covenant in the blood of Jesus not that it was the blood of Jesus. The Church says Jesus said, “This is the cup of my blood. The blood of the New and Everlasting Covenant. It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven.” This contradicts the view of the Church that the cup become the risen Jesus not the one dying on the cross.

The Mass is a human invention and thus does not have the power to make people holy that it claims to have.
