Examining yourself to proclaiming the Lord's death

Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. (1 Cor 11:27f)

Douglas Wilson takes no prisoners debunking the far too often misunderstood meaning of this passage.

I love the Lord's Supper. To be able to be like the disciples Wilson describes, but examine yourself and see it, and then proclaim that the Lord's death has shed the blood you drink so you will not be punished (v.32)!

But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. (1 Cor 11:31)
