A People in a Place, Week 7 “More Good Than Harm”
In the passage for this message, Paul constructs an argument from the Corinthians lived experience that shows how what we call communion points to everything else. He confronts them, explaining that the way the go about sharing the Lord’s Table is doing more harm than good. He then goes on to cite examples from their culture that have influenced their gatherings in unwholesome ways, blunting their public expression of God’s Kingdom and his King, Jesus. He also shows them the redemptive side of those associations.
