Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

How often do you celebrate the Lord's Supper?

Recommended Posts

1 Corinthians 11:26

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes. (NASB)

 

How often do you celebrate the Lord's Supper? Weekly? Monthly?..etc.?

I attend a church the celebrates it once a month, on the first Sunday. In the past I have gone to a church where it was celebrated every week. One church I attended celebrated it only once a year, and not in a regular service but in a special one. They did this so only members of the church could take part. Since I wasn't officially a member of the church I never attended these services.

Once a month. We study Scripture on the Lords supper in adult and children's Sunday school on that day and usually the sermon is about life in Christ. Then our preacher goes on to read to read Scripture and then warns that if anyone who partakes but doesn't believe is drinking and eating their own judgment.

Once a month, and our church does verbally fence the Communion table.

 

God bless,

It's scheduled. Not too often. I like that. It's something special, not something you just do and move on to the next time. You prepare to receive the Lord's Supper. It's the most wonderful services there are.

Our pastor has it once a quarter or so. It's fully explained from Scripture -- it's open to anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

They alternate between Sunday services and I make it a point to attend the service that will celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper every Sunday, so weekly.

Weekly at home church and Bible study for now. Monthly at last church I attended. I also attended a church that has communion once a year as part of the seder dinner which they believe Jesus intended during the Passover Last Supper.

Once a month at the church I currently attend. The Lutheran church I grew up in had communion about twice a month.

 

Sometimes I wish that the Lord's supper could involve more actual communion or fellowship with other believers, all of us gathering together in remembrance of Christ's sacrifice, rather than just kneeling at an alter for a few moments.
