Our Answer to Question 3
1 Corinthians 11 says that we must examine ourselves, confess our sins, and remember that Jesus died for our forgiveness. We should do this prior to taking the Lord’s Supper so that we honor Jesus and his sacrifice.
So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. – 1 Corinthians 11:27-29
