Is it a sin to eat a wafer if you were baptized catholic but didnt have a communion or confirmation because you were taken to a protestant church?

Since you are not in full communion with the catholic Church, you should not receive the "wafer" which is the true body and blood of Christ. You can take classes to eneter into full communion as a candidate in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation)program, and then are more than welcome to receive the "wafer". You should referain from doing so until you receive a better understanding of the Church's teachings. With regard to it being a sin, you have not received the sacrament of Penance so sin only applies to knowing you are doing wrong as a a catechized Catholic. While it is not a sin for you, you should refrain from this, and seek the RCIA program. Most programs start in the fall and end with Communion and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil.

Can a baptist take communion in a Lutheran church?

No. The Lutheran church believes that Holy Communion is Christ's body and blood by Real Presence. RP is usually described as "in, with, and under". To overly simplify it: we're not sure how it works, but we're taking it on faith. Roman Catholics believe that the wafer/ unleavened bread miraculously becomes- physically and figuratively- the body and blood of Christ. This is a fundamental difference of philosophy, so they would probably not let you. Of course, this depends on the church itself. They would probably quote 2 Timothy (I think) and the curse that befalls anyone who takes Communion/ Eucharist in an unholy fashion. hope i helped. REVISED**The verse is 1 Corinthians 11:27 that states that communion should not be done in an unholy fashion
