1 Corinthians 10:14-11:1 - The Lord's Supper - Believer's Freedom

1. What kind of idols is Paul speaking about in Verse 10:14? (Exodus 32:1-6)

2. In 10:16, is Paul talking about literally drinking the blood of Christ and eating his body? (Luke 22:19-20)

3. Many denominations, Lutheran for example, believe that the drinking of the wine implies the forgiveness of your sins. Where did this idea come from?

4. In verse 10:17, Paul talks about eating from one loaf. Does this mean that for communion we should have one big loaf of bread from which we break pieces?

5. Think about verse 10:21 and what it means today. What is an example of drinking from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too?

6. Verse 10:23 is one of those Bible verses that packs a huge lifelong lesson in just a few words. Give some examples of something that is permissible (or allowed or lawful) but not good for you (or constructive or beneficial). How about something that is permissible for you but is bad for someone else (verse 10:24)?

7. In verses 10:25 to 32, Paul reiterates what he previously said in verses 8:4 to 13. Can you summarize it.

8. In verse 10:32, Paul says not to offend Jews, Gentiles, or Christians. Why is he concerned with not offending Jews or Gentiles?

9. If Paul were to write this verse today, he might say, “Don’t give offense to Muslims, atheists, Buddhists, or Christians.” How do your feel about this?

10. When Paul says in verse 32, “...please everyone in everything I do...” does that mean he will compromise the Gospel to please a Jew or Muslim?

11. (Verse 11:1) How are you doing at imitating Paul who, in turn, is imitating Christ?
