17In the things I tell you now I don’t praise you. Your meetings hurt you more than they help you. 18First, I hear that when you meet together as a church you are divided. And this is not hard to believe 19because of your idea that you must have separate groups to show who the real believers are! 20When you all come together, it is not really the Lord’s Supper#11:20 Lord’s Supper The special meal Jesus told his followers to eat to remember him. See Lk. 22:14-20. you are eating. 21I say this because when you eat, each one eats without waiting for the others. Some people don’t get enough to eat or drink, while others have too much.#11:21 have too much Literally, “get drunk.” 22You can eat and drink in your own homes. It seems that you think God’s church is not important. You embarrass those who are poor. What can I say? Should I praise you? No, I cannot praise you for this. 28Before you eat the bread and drink the cup, you should examine your own attitude. 33So, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. 34If some are too hungry to wait, they should eat at home. Do this so that your meeting together will not bring God’s judgment on you. I will tell you what to do about the other things when I come.
