Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

    Study the whole epistle; not just 12 verses. Paul's gospel was nothing more than "Christ and Him crucified".(ch.2:2) After ch.7:1, (incl. our passage) he is answering their questions. Vs.4 to 9 are about the fallen daughters of Adam; and thereafter about Christian women's direct relation with the creator "IN THE LORD" The context indicates that "HEAD" means supply and "THIS CAUSE" is "ANGELS"
  • Omutichi
    It is important to recognize God in his purity.that is why we are given a second chance through salvation.it is then important to reach out to christ through getting born again or receiving salvation and at this point one becomes free and can freely take the Lords table.sin separets us from the Lord and and hence unworthy to partake of His table.if we do it we bring judgement upon ourselves.

    I believe it is a guideline for us to go by, it says it very clearly

    The Lord's supper,Is A picture of Christ on the cross, suffering for our sin. There are some worthy enough to unworthily partake of the supper, eating and drinking damnation to himself. We are to be a light in the world. When we sin:go to the Lord instantly. When you come to the supper table,wash up, show respect for the blood of Christ.
    Proverbs 14:14 shall be filled with his own ways:
  • In this section of this Chapter the Lords supper is talked about. We are to examine our self and to understand the relationship we have with God before partaking of the Lord s Holy Supper. Earlier in this chapter it talks about the proper worship as well as unworthy communion. What s important to examine is where is your heart, is this partaking a tradition or ritual or is it seeking that reassurance of cleansing your heart and forgiveness of our sins. As we have talked many times about is your reasoning for attending church or attending communion for community recognition or status or is it for a true love of following God. We come to that alter rail to eat of the bread and drink of the cup, through the grace of God, believing and trusting that our sin debt has been washed away and knowing that through the shed blood of Jesus our salvation was given to us. Our kneeling for this supper brings to remembrance the sacrifice of our Lord, the renewing of our spirit, remembering Gods grace and mercy on us sinners and feeling God s love in our heart. Our prayer as we partake is to give our self to God and commit our life to serving, honoring and following him. As we rise from this blessing we feel the weight of sin lifted, we feel God s comfort and peace he has put upon us and we can see the world with our eyes on God, our ears to hearing the truth of his word and our actions guided by the Holy Spirit. We walk in rejoicing God s love.
  • Mark
    Many people get caught up in thinking they have to be worthy to go to the table of the lord Jesus taught do this in remembrance of me and understand the meaning of the bread and non fermented wine That is what Paul is referring to when he says examine your selves unworthily not worthy non of us are worthy. Partaking of the lords table in faith is all that is meant.
