People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:1


1Co 11:1 Dress and Conduct in the Church SUMMARY OF I CORINTHIANS 11: Men in Church to Pray with Uncovered Heads. Women to Be Veiled. Disorderly Assemblies. The Abuse of Love Feasts. The Lord's Supper Profaned. The Lesson from Christ's Appointment of the Ordinance. Must Be Eaten with Solemn Reverence. Be ye followers of me even as I also [am] of Christ. This refers to 1Co 10:33. Like him, they should not seek to "please themselves", but to so act as to save others.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

  • Richard Harvie
    We must remember that St.paul was NOT divine and that his commandment to shave off a womans hair who prays without her head being covered is plainly ridiculous. Indeed it behoves Christians to return to Christ's commandments of non-judgemental unconditional love if Christianity has any chance of surviving into the future--and foresake their sin-seeing habits!

    Let everything be done decently and in order. i think that we are getting back to bare bones times ahead, gathering in homes or small groups is the way the church began. We can believe for miracles and see the Holy Spirit move wherever three or more agree...let's stay strong.

    Our Lord s Supper: should be: Revered: Respect: Reverence: Home: House of God: Even a Shack: Building does not Matter: GOD s HOLY: AWESOME:PRESENCE IS THERE! Old Days: Brush Arbour Meetings: was held in Dirt Floor Shacks: God always Showed-up: Miracles: Healings: Holy Spirit Baptism: Demons Cast Out: etc: God the Holy Spirit has Left these MEGA BUILDINGS: The Falling Away is now RAMPANT APOSTASY!
  • Kaneleus
    i think that it is talking about how a woman should cover their head because if you are a woman if you do not cover their head their should be shame are be shave or shorn
  • Bonita
    The Bible says as often as you do this it’s not just for pass over
  • Cate mansfield
    Yes I would have the same understanding as Ray Smith in that eat drink and be merry at home if you so wish. Not in the house of our Lord. In his house its done as a rememberance to God and Jesus Christ in whom we respect.
