1 Corinthians 11:17-26
But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.
For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, r I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part,
for s there must be factions among you in order t that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.
When you come together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat.
For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, u another gets drunk.
What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise v the church of God and w humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.
For x I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that y the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread,
and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me."
In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me."
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death z until he comes.

1 Corinthians 3:3
For you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?
Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes!
And he said to his disciples, "Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come!
And from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.

1 John 2:19
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
You shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the Lord your God is testing you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
2 Peter 2:13
Suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, while they feast with you.
These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted.
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.
Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.
But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court?
