1 Corinthians 11

King James Version (KJV)


11 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.

5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.

9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.

18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.

21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? what shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.

I'll give you a clue. Neither god nor jesus is ever credited with making such a statement.

Here is another clue, jesus 'said', "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law"

Has heaven and earth passed? No.

who="LTM" It amazes me those of us who call ourselves christians, are rising up calling each other lairs, and many other names.
We who say we love the Lord have made our brothers and sisters in the Lord our enemy , we are fighting each other.
Satan sure has done his job well, we don't even trust that though we are not able, God is able to bring us to perfection.
I love the Lord very much as I am sure the rest of my brothers and sisters in the Lord do.
The truth is I rather talk to Jethro, and Michael then some of you, I don't feel judged or condemn to hell, because I may spiritually haven't matured to the same level that others have.
This is God's plan for Salvation not ours, I believe we all are right were we are suppose to be in God's wonderful plan.
I wonder how many people have left their walk with God because of finger pointers, God takes the load off and we 'GOOD WELL MEANING CHRISTIAN THROW IT RIGHT BACK ON THEM'
WE KEEP SAYING GOD IS A LOVING HOLY GOD; SO WERE IS THE LOVE?? AS BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS WE ARE SUPPOSE TO SHOW THE WORLD, IF WE KEEP ACTING LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD TO WARD OUR FELLOW MAN.
ISN'T THERE SUPPOSE TO BE A CHANGE, A TOLERATION ACCEPTANCE AND AN UNDERSTAND.THERE ISN'T ANY ON THIS BOARD.

I GUESS SOME OF US ARE STILL IN THE PHARISEE STAGE IN OUR WALK WITH THE LORD.

I'll stick to the TRUTH of faith and Salvation in Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church. I know that it just "bugs" you that ALL of us, as Catholics on this forum, are living out our TRUE FAITH that Christ taught, proclaimed and ministered to His apostles, disciples and followers throughout over 2000 years of Church History, worshipping in HIS One True Catholic Church-----however it "your own misery and hate" that you have to deal with--NOT OURS or the other 1.168 Billion Catholics around the world. The ONLY thing that we can, and are (called to do-as Christians) is to pray for you!!!!
you gave me the answer i expected,nothing,no history to deny the truth i posted,your living out the true faith of hypocrits,they tell you to follow the word of god treat your fellow man with love and honesty,and they do the opposite,ya your following the right church,and your number is wrong,it's no longer 1.168 billion catholics,it's 1 billion and shrinking by the day,the only place the church is doing ok is in third world countries where people are not educated about the truth of the church,why do you think the pope went to the poor countries of central america?they are desperate people looking for any kind of hope,did he leave behind any money to help them out?after all with 1.168 billion members at a dollar a week times 52 weeks,that's a lot of money,why didn't he offer to help the starving? the homeless? the sick? why not build a hospital for them? they had the money to build a 2 million dollar church in the midwest,and buy the crystal church,how come they never give to the people they are suppose to love and protect and guide? why didn't he stop here in america?? what's he afraid of? you tell me i'm lying abbout the church all the time yet you post nothing that can prove me wrong.

I understand where you're coming from.
People have to first look pass the stereotypes about the Church. They been fed quite a bit of propaganda - especially about the bible.

Its important to understand that no Roman Emperor would have been able to infiltrate the Church, because its protected by Christ. Indeed there is no evidence Constantine altered anything about the faith - except he set into motion the idea of compiling a Christian Bible- which finally happened 50 yr after he died.

Hmmm, no we don't all know.
Its not good to be Biblically ignorant just so you think you're justified in teaching as you do.
Its clear you and the other products of Luther and Calvin changed Scripture meaning AND scripture itself by removing books from the Bible.
Its not too late to repent and come back. You, Confrint and others would have been better off never to venture into this arena. You could have read your bible, prayed and believed as you do without being held responsible.
But what do you do now? Its been proven too many times to count, that your theology is not what was taught. Therefore is not the will of Christ.
Many Evangelical Preachers were at this same crossroad and chose to cease preaching things they now knew to be un biblical. I know you're not a preacher, but you're still on here spreading your version of the faith.

My husband was never a janitor at a college. But it seems our Lord did some janitor work: He cleaned out the temple!

Wonder of wonders...He's cleaned out a LOT of those.(Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost?):)

Those who clean are not the ones to be shamed...but those who refuse to clean up their act. Not to worry...He will do it in His own time.

Clay, I just posted Matthew 24 to KM. not to discredit the catholic church .
I don't believe to a relgious denomination because I don't beleive any of them have it absolutely right.
God alone has it right and everyone else a lair .
When they started removing prayer and the Bible from schools the Ten Commandments from government buildings, and we Christians didn't say a word, is when Christianity went AWOL Clay.

********

LTM...while there is some question as to who 'has it right', I associate with a church group BECAUSE He said not to 'forsake the assembly', and He desires us to be in one accord.

Maybe we haven't done enough, but I know Christians who are working hard to keep the Commandments, the Bible reading and prayer visible in America. We have a leftist media that stifles our voice, so the cry is not always heard.

You have a point....A good one, concerning the civil law in the O.T. I think the main issue for Christians is that they follow the moral laws contained in the O.T., and they do not follow the ritual and civil laws....
And although you might not acknowledge that civil law is progressive in the Bible, and grows in time, I think it does.
Why are there millions/billions of them now in the U.S., when a couple of generations ago there may have been hundereds? So do you want to bring back the old civil laws in the U.S.? That would mean everyone MUST carry a firearm, under penalty of going to jail....
But with that aside, you now quote the N.T.,about jots and tittles, heaven and earth....
Does that mean you think that the Universe exists, and at some point in the past did not exist?(i.e. Big Bang?)
Does that mean you think that the Universe at some point will not exist?
Do you think that the Universe at some point has not passed away, and been re-Created? What evidence do you have?
Was there a distinction, in the bible, between civil, ritual, or moral Laws? Where?
