      Closed Communion
      James Foley
       
      I Corinthians 11:17-34: "Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's Supper. For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come."

      INTRODUCTION

      Historic Baptists, true Baptists, have believed in and still believe in closed communion. Baptists impose upon themselves the same restrictions that they impose on others concerning the Lord’s Supper. Baptists have always insisted that it is the Lord’s Table, not theirs; and He alone has the right to say who shall sit at His table. No amount of so called brotherly love, or ecumenical spirit, should cause us to invite to His table those who have not complied with the requirements laid down plainly in His inspired Word. With respect to Bible doctrines we must always use the scripture as our guide and practice. For Baptists, two of the most important doctrines are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. These are the only two doctrines we recognize as Church Ordinances. The Bible is very clear in teaching how these doctrines are to be practiced and by whom.

      We only have two ordinances that we must never compromise or we risk our very existence, they are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper.

      The moment we deviate from the precise method God has prescribed we have started down the slippery slope of error. True Baptists have held fast to the original doctrine of The Lord’s Supper from the time of Christ and the Apostles.

      Unfortunately, in this day of what the Bible describes as the age of luke warmness, Baptists are becoming careless in regard to strictly following the pattern laid out for us in Scripture. Many of our Bible colleges are graduating otherwise sincere, Godly and dedicated pastors and teachers who have not been taught the very strict, biblical requirements that surround the Lord’s Supper. Any Bible college that neglects to teach its students the differences surrounding Closed Communion, Close Communion and Open Communion is not simply short changing its students; it is also not equipping their students to carry on sound Bible traditions. The result is men of God and churches that fall into error. And as we will see, this is serious error.

      Should we as Baptists ignore the restrictions made by our Lord and Master? NO! When we hold to the restrictions placed upon the Lord’s Supper by our Master, we are defending the "faith which was once delivered to the saints" Jude 3.

      The Lord’s Supper is rigidly restricted and I will show this in the following facts:

      IT IS RESTRICTED AS TO PLACE

      A. I Corinthians 11:18 says, "When ye come together in the church." This does not mean the church building; they had none. In other words, when the church assembles. The supper is to be observed by the church, in church capacity. Again this does not mean the church house. Ekklesia, the Greek word for church, means assembly. "When ye come together in the church," is when the church assembles.

      B. When we say church we mean an assembly of properly baptized believers. Acts 2:41-42: "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."

      The church is made up of saved people who are baptized by immersion. In the Bible, belief precedes baptism. That’s the Bible way.

      Acts 8:12-13, "But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done."

      When we say properly baptized, we mean immersed. No unbeliever should take the Lord’s supper, and no non-immersed believer should take the supper. Those who are sprinkled are not baptized and cannot receive the supper. The Greek word for baptize is baptizo, and it always means to immerse.

      "In every case where communion is referred to, or where it may possibly have been administered, the believers had been baptized Acts 2:42; 8:12; 8:38; 10:47; 6:14-15; 18:8; 20:7. Baptism comes before communion, just as repentance and faith precede baptism".

      C. The Lord’s Supper is for baptized believers in church capacity: "When ye come together in the church," again not a building, but the assembly of the properly baptized believers.

      D. The fact that the Lord’s Supper is a church ordinance, to be observed in church capacity, is pointed out by the fact that it is for those who have been immersed and added to the fellowship of the church.

      E. The Lord’s Supper is never spoken of in connection with individuals. When it is referred to, it is only referred to in reference to baptized believers in local church capacity I Cor. 11:20-26).

      I want to quote Dr. W.W. Hamilton,

      "The individual administration of the ordinance has no Bible warrant and is a relic of Romanism. The Lord’s Supper is a church ordinance, and anything which goes beyond or comes short of this fails for want of scriptural example or command".

      “The practice of taking a little communion kit to hospitals, nursing homes, etc. is unscriptural and does not follow the scriptural example.”

      IT IS RESTRICTED TO A UNITED CHURCH

      A. The Bible in I Cor. 11:18 is very strong in condemning divisions around the Lord’s table. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
      19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
      20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.

      There were no less than four divisions in the Corinthian church.
      I Cor. 1:12: "Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ."

      Because of these divisions, it was impossible for them to scripturally eat the Lord’s Supper. Division in the local church is reason to hold off observing the Lord’s Supper. But there are also other reasons to forego taking the Lord’s Supper. If there is gross sin in the membership we do not take it. Here is scriptural evidence for this: 1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us:
      8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
      10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

      B. At this point, I want to ask these questions: Are there not doctrinal divisions among the many denominations? Is it not our doctrinal differences that cause us to be separate religious bodies?

      IT IS RESTRICTED BY DOCTRINE

      A. Those in the early church at Jerusalem who partook "continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine" Acts 2:42. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

      B. Those that do not hold to apostolic truth are not to partake. This means there is to be discipline in the local body. How can you discipline those who do not belong to the local body? You can’t. The clear command of scripture is to withdraw fellowship from those who are not doctrinally sound.

      II Thes 3:6: "Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us."
      Rom. 16:17: "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them."
      To commune together means to have the same doctrine.
      II Thes. 2:15: "Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle."
      II John 10-11: "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."

      C. Some Baptists in our day have watered down this doctrine by practicing what they call “Close Communion.” By this they mean that they believe that members of another Baptist church may take communion with us because they are of the same beliefs. Once again, this is unscriptural.

      The welcome to the Lord's Table should not be extended beyond the discipline of the local church. When we take the Lord’s Supper there is supposed to be no gross sin among us and no divisions among us. We have no idea of the spiritual condition of another church’s members. If there is sin or division in the case of this other church’s members, we have no way of knowing it. We cannot discipline them because they are not members of our church. This is why we practice “Closed” communion, meaning it is restricted solely to our church membership. 
      So then, in closing I would like to reiterate the three different ideas concerning the Lord’s Supper and who is to take it. 
      Closed Communion = Only members of a single local church. 
      Close Communion = Members of like faith and order may partake. 
      Open Communion = If you claim to be a Christian, or simply attending the service, you may partake. 
      It is no small thing to attempt to change that which was implemented by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
      Mt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 
      Many of our Baptist churches have a real need to consider the gravity of the act of observing The Lord’s Supper. It is not a light thing that is to be taken casually or without regard to the spiritual condition of ourselves or our church.
      1Co. 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

       28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

       29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

       30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

Shepherd's Chapel

When my husband was pastoring in TX we had one of the Shepherd's Chapel people show up at our church. At first, he was gung-ho about the church - loved the expository preaching, etc. Then his beliefs started surfacing in SS! eek!
Shepherd's Chapel believes in British Israelism and it's basically a deeply racist cult. We got rid of him QUICK (my husband visited them in their home and led the conversation in such a way that they were quite uncomfortable coming back).

I 1st saw them back in the 90's, 1st time or 2 I watched , I did not watch the whole show, I thought he was very impressive.

Them after watching them a few more times it started adding up, false teacher of the worse kind.

And to think, he is located in the northwest corner of my state.

Them there is that false teacher out in California, Gene Scott with all of his horses and pretty women.

When Glen Campbell claimed to have been save he said that Dr. Gene Scott inspired him to turn to Jesus and was his favorite teacher.

In the last 2 years I have gotten to know a fellow that grew up in the town that Shepard's Chapel is located. I've always wondered about this place and what this man is like. So I asked this man, this is what he told me. Seems they keep a low profile around their home town. Thought I would share this with y'all. I might add, this man attends a SBC Church, but does not live in the town where Shepard's Chapel is located at this time.

As for Shepherd's Chapel, the church and an adjoining building (large but not huge) are located a couple of blocks off highway 72 in Gravette. The thing that is distinctive about it are all the huge TV satellite dishes located on the grounds.

One doesn't hear much about Shepherd's Chapel. They're not a cult by any means, but they don't associate much, if any, with the other churches. About the only times I see them mentioned in any of the local papers is in obituaries when they say the person attended Shepherd's Chapel. Years ago some of their faithful would display stickers on their cars promoting Shepherd's Chapel, but you don't see that much anymore. I think they concentrate on studying the Bible verse by verse like on the TV program and don't do much visible recruiting, outreach work or participate in other activities as a church. In years past I have turned on the TV in motel rooms in Orlando, FL, and Reno, NV, at some wierd time of the day, like 5 or 6 a.m., and found the program that was originating in my home town. Kinda' blows one's mind.

As for Arnold Murray, I have met him a few times in years past, but it was always as my father's son and didn't really talk to him much. My Dad, who died about eight years ago, was a friend of Arnold's. Dad, like you, didn't agree with him on religion, but Dad, a businessman who owned a business in Gravette for several years, liked Arnold and said he was a good, honest businessman. I always respected Dad's opinion on such matters. (By the way, another of Dad's friends whom he respected for his business ability was Sam Walton, with whom Dad quail-hunted often.)

During the nine years I have been back in Northwest Arkansas, the only time I have heard anyone talking about Arnold Murray was two or three years ago when the rumor was flying around that Loretta Lynn, the country-music star, had fallen for Arnold and had been seen visiting him in Gravette. Since I haven't heard anything recently, apparently that infatuation has ended...if it ever existed.

So ya don't think it's a cult? Apparently you've never heard him preach about the "serpent seed", which basically sez that Eve had intercourse with ole Sneaky Snake when they met at the tree of forbidden fruit, and from this affair Cain was born; the kenites were Cain's descendants.

This is is direct contrast to SCRIPTURE, which sez the Kenites were part of the MIDIANITES, a son of Abraham's by his 2nd wife Keturah. Many of the Kenites joined with Israel during the Exodus, at Moses' invitation, and remained with Israel, though maintaining their own identity, for centuries. And Scripture always speax favorably of the Kenites. prominent among them war Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, Jael and her hubby Heber, Rechab, & his son Jehonadab.

Besides that, did any of cain's posterity survive the Flood? Not unless any of Noah's daughters-in-law were among them.

Murray believes in MODALISM, the false, anti-Scriptural concept that sez that GOD IS BUT ONE BEING, who assumes the office of Father, Son, or Holy Spirit as needed. Guess he never read Jesus' words, "My Father is greater than I" or about Jesus' baptism, where Jesus was physically present being baptized, the HOLY SPIRIT arrived in the form of a dove, separate from Jesus, and a voice boomed FROM HEAVEN ABOVE, "This is My BELOVED SON..." while Jesus and the Holy Spirit were in plain sight standing on the ground.

Murray said, on national TV: "You have these yo-yo's that will say, 'Well I want you to think like of water (sic) and ice' and so on, various gases or so forth, or then they'll say, 'I want you to think of a 200 watt bulb, and a 150 watt bulb, and a 50 watt bulb.' Well, they're all the same wattage, friend. So why not just simplify it instead of playing stupid games, and understand there are three offices of the Godhead. Like this little lady said. She said, 'To my husband I am a wife, to my children I am a mother, that's my office. To hundreds of third graders I am their teacher and have been down through the years. That's a different office; none of them the same, but I'm still the same person.' I like that. It's simple and to the point (The Shepherd's Chapel Question and Answer period, aired 6-4-91)."

Apparently, Murray has never read, or ignores, Matt. 3:16; 17; 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14, Matt. 12:31, 32; John 1:1-14; 8:16-18; 14:16, 17, 23; 15:26; 16:28; 17:1-5.

He also teaches the false doctrine of annihilationalism, that is, there's no eternal hell & that the wicked will simply be made to cease to exist. This is yet another heresy that conflicts directly with SCRIPTURE.

These are just SOME of the false doctrines taught by Murray. And here's something else - just try to find out where he got his "doctorate degree"! The man is just simply LYING about having a doctorate! Why would a CHRISTIAN lie about this? (or ANYTHING, for that matter!)

Yes, this "ministry" is a dangerous cult reaching millions of homes thru their TV sets. Fortunately, mosta the viewers see it for what it is! Be forewarned & forearmed if you ever choose to watch the "Shepherd's Chapel" prog on your TV!

Never heard of them myself but it's good to expose false churches and their leaders.


The man has like a four hour block on TV every morning to brodcast his Shepherds Chapel. It's hard to pin him down in what he really believes.

Believes Eve & satan had a kid (cain) whos descendents r most people in Israel (Jews they call the kenites). Believes their church can see truths in bible most everybody else cant. Believes only the caucasians come from Adam & Eve. Believes they were in heaven battling satan when he fell & *born again* means born to *this life* from a womb. From that point it gets --intesting.... :coolsmiley:

Pastor Murray teaches that the Antichris come first and if someone appears saying he is chris and you are still in a human body.  Then he a Fake.    If you all are so smart show me where the bible says we will be raptured away.  Think about it if that was true then what would the devil be coming back for? because all that were left would already be his. nancyshortridge@yahoo.com

It's pretty clear in I Thessalonians 4 that there is a "rapture" the debate is when it will happen: before, during or after the great Tribulation.

These all teach a clear rapture of the church. What's the problem?

"13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1Thes 4:13-17)

"14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped." (Rev 14:14-16)

"51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." (1Cor 15:51, 52)

 

Now, I will say that I believe somewhat differently than many here, and I am not here to argue the point, or to declare that this is a platform the entire site holds to, but I believe the rapture to take place just prior to the falling of God's wrath, as seen in Rev 14. However, the Bible is clear that, even if that be the case, those who are sealed by the  Holy Spirit won't be touched by the plagues to fall during the seven trumpets. Satan comes to take over the world, not the believers-he has already lost those who belong to the Lord and he cannot touch us-it is Satan's wrath against the world, against God's creation, because he hates it. Satan is a murderer and he will destroy anyone he can. He knows his end is in the lake of fire and he desires to bring as many as possible to that same end.

The Shepherd's Chapel by Arnold Murray is a false cult located in Arkansas that does not believe in an eternal hell. They have a false belief similar to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

I believe the Shepherd's Chapel chapter by chapter verse by verse Bible study hits the nail on the head every time.....Love their teachings and I believe full heartedly because it makes sense and I go with what makes sense.  Any one doing a Bible study should follow chapter by chapter verse by verse, Praise the Heavenly Father thank you Jesus !!

I believe the anti-Christ comes at the 6th Seal 6th Trumpet 6th Bowl and Jesus our Christ will return at the 7th Seal 7th Trumpet 7th Bowl, therefore we will all be on earth (if living at this time) through tribulation, not raptured before tribulation which many religions teach is false belief.....Jesus our Christ comes after tribulation not before

For how long will false-shepherd's chapels lead people astray,  verse by verse, in a way that seems right to a man, but is leading to destruction ?  

As Jesus warned,  severely,  beware the leaven of the shepherds / religious leaders.

Very strict warning.   Leaven is hypocrisy,  and is very common in shepherds. 

fwiw,  years ago,  I watched it also,  and gradually the truth came out (it is not obvious most televised episodes).   Later the details of the false gospel of shepherd's chapel was brought to the light,   and no one needs remain deceived on the road to destruction anymore.   The false teaching is subtle,  like the serpent in the garden,  but is directly contrary to Scripture, as revealed in many online reviews. (not for this thread nor forum)

A tangent  (or direct) observation:   In the Apocalypse it is written that the remaining two thirds of mankind (the whole world) refuses to stop worshiping demons when one third of mankind is killed.   And in agreement with Ephesians 2,  the whole world, except the few saints,  are already now, today, subject to the devil. ("prince of the power of the air") . (even the saints "once were",  before being set free/born again/redeemed and made a new creation)
