1 Corinthians 11:17-34
One of the reasons 1 Cor. 11 is such a tempting passage to ignore is because it is so controversial today. – Just reading some of these verses in polite company will either make a room go hushed & quiet, or erupt into debate – and that’s just from reading the verses, without making any comment on them!
O, if only we had a list of rules or a policy or code of conduct for everything! – Wouldn’t it make life much easier? – Wouldn’t it save us a lot of trouble, and a lot of conflict in the church? Not really. – It would satisfy the legalist inside us all, and lead to a room full of either dead
robots or proud Pharisees.
