"When, therefore, you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord's supper; for each one, in eating, takes before another, his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunken. What, have you not houses in which to eat and drink? or do you despise the church of God, and put those to shame who have nothing to eat? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this?
