I have a friend who thinks someone needs to be saved and baptized before they should take communion. He cited Acts 2 where the people were saved, baptized and then broke bread together. First, I'm not even sure if "breaking bread together" is referencing communion or not. Second, even if it is, Acts 2 is more descriptive than prescriptive; after breaking bread, the believers also held all things in common, and we don't practice that anymore. My friend said that even if the person was saved and a he was scheduled to be baptized in a couple weeks and there was communion during that time, the person should not take it. My friend also clarified that he is not a proponent of "closed communion" - i.e., he does not believe you must be a member of the church serving communion. But they must be saved, baptized (immersed) and not living in disobedience. I find that position to be too harsh. My thought on communion is the person needs to be saved and not be living a disobedient life (i.e., I Cor. 11 - examine yourself). If a person is saved and they have honest questions about baptism, then I think they are fine to take communion before they are baptized. Now if the person is rebelling against being Biblically baptized, then that would constitute living in disobedience, so in that case, they should not take communion. What do you think?
