Eating a Pandemic

 1 Corinthians 11:28-30 “But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly .For this reason, , a number sleep.”

 

Some scholars remain concerned over the lack the translators have given to the above. Among the three areas of church-division in these chapters of I Corinthians; Gender, Gifts of the Spirit and Table communion, it appears to me that the one that stands to be the most damaging and most vulnerable is self-abusive partaking of the Lord’s table.

 

While I do consider in a mild sense, but not in awareness, the customs in particular to the Corinthian people of that day. In studies like these, including hermeneutical extrapolation might serve as a reduction and who knows, cancel aimless wonder of self-examining failures. Why else but to guard from areas they themselves may have been accustom to, but by every means possible?

 

For the Apostle then to take note of misuse is entirely noteworthy for the Church! Those things might have been family or pedigree passage, unruly clamor, accusation against another (Roberts 1936: 42) Again, quite elementary, the principle of “examine” or to prove should endure to the very last Church.

 

The unfortunate underestimation of mankind’s condition in these last days, while in “common” over universal temptations, is the level of frequency to erode our instincts into a state of relativism and ultimate devastating loss, invites what I call sleeperism, a Spiritual and National Pandemic of the misuse of this sacred table. Yet, I am persuaded better of the Church though that frequency now grows steadily within a sleeping liberal Christian culture.

 

God bless you on this celebrated day, Thanksgiving!
