II. The Corinthian Abuse of the Lord’s Supper.

E. Modern Application:

  • It is not the work of the church to sponsor common meals as a tool of evangelism. Individuals should be hospitable to all, but that is not the work of the church.

B. “Love-Feasts.” Gr. agape (Žg‹ph) - “1. Affection, good-will, love, benevolence. 2. Love-feasts.” (Thayer, p. 4)

III. Definition of Terms.

1. It is not clear if the term “love-feast” refers the Lord’s Supper or a common meal outside of the assembly.

2. The Bible never makes a clear distinction of something it calls the “Lord’s Supper” in contrast to what it calls the “Love Feast.”

3. Paul clearly commands a separation of the memorial and meals for hunger.
