Bishop Ryle offers the Church a wonderful word on the Lord’s Supper. Read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest…
“A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup” (1 Corinthians 11:28)
The words which form the tittle of this paper refer to the subject of vast importance. That subject is the Lord’s Supper.
Perhaps no part of the Christian religion is so thoroughly misunderstood as the Lord’s Supper. On no point have there been so many disputes, strifes, and controversies for almost 1800 years. On no point have mistakes done so much harm. The very ordinance which was meant for our peace and profit has become the cause of discord and the occasion of sin. These things ought not to be!
