THE LORD’S SUPPER AND THE CHURCH THE LORD’S SUPPER AND THE CHURCH
The Lord’s Supper Gone Viral The Coronavirus threat, which has temporarily shut down the assemblies of churches, has raised a new twist on an old question: “Where may we partake of the Lord’s Supper?” It has been credibly reported that some, feeling a keen need to partake of the Lord’s Supper “with” their brethren but at a safe distance, have decided to go “viral” with the Lord’s Supper and partake of it online in their homes. This raises important questions, the first being, of course, “Is this a Scripturally valid substitute for partaking of the Lord’s Supper in church?” Yet, someone is sure to ask, “If we can do this during the Coronavirus threat, why can’t we do it all, or more, of the time?” Thus, it is not hard to imagine how this question might threaten attendance and, ultimately, even the existence of churches. In short, this is a very relevant and practical question. Perhaps there is something to be appreciated in the sentiments of those who feel a keen desire to be with their brethren and partake of the Lord’s Supper by doing “the next best thing.” The relevant sermons provided herein are not intended to diminish that desire but only to provide helpful and timely answers to ensure worship which is acceptable to God.
