Why is self-examination important?
We need to take heed and exam ourselves. It isn’t acceptable to just keep moving on and winging it when it comes to our faith. First Corinthians is a corrective and instructive letter from Paul to the church in Corinth.
One of the issues Paul addresses is the manner in which the people were taking communion. Often a “love feast,” or fellowship meal, would accompany communion, meaning communion was more of an “event” than it is in many churches today.
