So if anyone eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily, that person is guilty of sinning against the body and the blood of the Lord.
That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking from the cup.
For if you eat the bread or drink the cup unworthily, not honoring the body of Christ, a you are eating and drinking God's judgment upon yourself.
That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died.
But if we examine ourselves, we will not be examined by God and judged in this way.
But when we are judged and disciplined by the Lord, we will not be condemned with the world.
