Abuses at the Lord's Supper
1 Corinthians 11:17-34
17 Now in this that I declare, I praise you not, that ye come together, not with profit, but with hurt.
18 For first of all, when ye come together in the Church, I hear that there are dissentions among you; and I believe it to be true in some part.
19 For there must be heresies even among you, that they which are approved among you, might be known.
20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's Supper.
21 For every man when they should eat, taketh his own supper afore, and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22 Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? Despise ye the Church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
23 For I have received of the Lord that which I also have delivered unto you, to wit, That the Lord Jesus in the night when he was betrayed, took bread;
24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat; this is my body, which is broken for you; this do ye in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the New Testament in my blood; this do as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26 For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shew the Lord's death till he come.
27 Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 Let every man therefore examine himself, and so let him eat of this bread, and drink of this cup.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he discerneth not the Lord's body.
30 For this cause many are weak, and sick among you, and many sleep.
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, because we should not be condemned with the world.
33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.
34 And if any man be hungry, let him eat at home, that ye come not together unto condemnation. Other things will I set in order when I come.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?

Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
