Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

  • Bruce
    The Lord Said, As Often as You Eat this Bread--- (Verse 26)As Often, is More then Once a Year. Some Every Month, or Every Week or 6 Times a Year. They are Showing The Lord's Death Till He Returns. You are to Search Your Heart to See if You have Sinned(Verse 27-29)They Go to Church to Worship and Sing Praises to God. And More Fellowship After Services. Christ and The Disciples Eat Together Often
  • Albett
    No, you're not correct. This is speaking on two things. People shouldn't go to church to have a feast, as many of these churches do. They bring food, just to hang out together to eat, in CHURCH. God does not like that. Also, churches who think they do good in God's eyes, when they have bread and wine, every Sunday. That's dead wrong. The bread and wine is only to be taken at Passover, annually.
  • Bruce
    Yes, It's Very Right. Some that have Money Made it a Picnic. The Others had No Money or Food. If I'm One of The Poor I Would be in Sin for Sure. I would Want Some of that Food. I would be Mad because They have and I Don't. If I had a Chance I would Steal something and then I would Lie. Church Dinners are OK. Everyone Can Eat
  • Lorrie
    Am I correct in that these paticular scriptures is in regards to The Lords Supper and not fellowshipping dinners at the church?
  • Steve morrow
    1 COR 11:3but I would have you know that the head of every man is CHRIST and the head of the woman is the man and the head of CHRIST is GOD 1 COR 8:5for though there be that are called gods whether in heaven or in earth as there be gods many and lords many8:6BUT TO US THERE IS BUT ONE GOD THE FATHER OF WHOM ARE ALL THINGS AND WE IN HIM AND ONE LORD JESUS CHRIST BY WHOM ARE ALL THINGS AND WE BY HIM

    Ray: Any Comment, Question, Thought is Helpful to All of Us. We are Iron Sharpening Iron. My Grandmother would not Eat at Church so I didn't. When they came together One would Bring Food,sit there and Eat Verse 21,Verse 22 One would feel Ashamed because they're to Poor. Today We have Church dinners,it's for Rich or Poor All can Eat. There should Never be a Charge or Combined with The Lord's Supper
