27Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.
Thanks for pointing this out. But can we ever be worthy? That really scares me.

The “unworthy manner” I believe covers a couple different kinds of people. People openly defying Christ’s teachings yet calling themselves Christian. For example, pro abortion politicians that claim to be practicing Christians. People actively using a Christian veneer to their advantage, but not really believing in Christ. The Christians in name only, that may “go to church”, but are not saved. Those that view church as a club-type/social group place to get together and just go through the motions of worship.

Only when we have been forgiven can we be worthy.
This is why a number of churches have you prepare for Communion by either confession or a time of prayer and repentance.
