Many, if not all, Christian churches believe communion is to be strictly for Christians only. My church is one that agrees with the teaching that non-Christians should not take the bread and cup. When I asked a friend and tried to tell him there wasn't a Bible passage to support the church's beliefs toward communion, he said there is, and pointed me to 1 Corinthians 11:27-29 in order to back himself up:
"So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself."
-- 1 Corinthians 11:27-29, NLT
I took communion almost every month from December 2007 through December 2009 as a non-Christian, and my friend told me I shouldn't have been taking it. I didn't take it for several years before then, as I did not feel comfortable in taking it.What does your church believe? Is it okay for non-Christians to take communion?
