Hi! Recently I administered the Lord's Supper and was told by someone afterwards that I had really offended someone becasue I said that unbelievers were to please refrain from participating since the Lord's Supper is for believers (those who trust Jesus as Savior and Lord). This was a Chrisitan but they said they thought it would make people feel like outsiders and not welcome. Ironically after I told unbelievers to please refrain from taking the Lord's Supper I said that this does not mean they are not welcome to come to Jesus as Savior and Lord and encouraged them to do so they could come to the Table. I think unbelievers should feel like outsiders during worship but that does not mean they are not welcome to observe and hopefully be converted by God. Should I have only said believers are welcome at the Table and left it at that (as people would logically conclude that would exclude unbeleivers)? I do feel that at times we need to be explicit about the functioning of the Lord's Supper and not just assume that people connect the dots. I feel that Paul voiced both the invitation and warning the the Lord's Table. Thought?
