[Little Baptist]

WEBMASTER'S NOTE: This story brings out in a Biblical and yet kindly fashion what the Bible teaches about baptism, the Lord's Supper or "communion", and various other important points. At the time the book was written there were only two forms or standard doctrines about "communion observance" or as we commonly say now "observing the Lord's Supper." The common terminology and belief was either "open communion" and "close or closed communion" (only two distinct forms or doctrines). Generally speaking in those days, "open" meant any Christian was invited to partake. And, (generally speaking) in those days "close or closed communion" meant what moderns now call "closed communion," that is only members of the local body were invited or expected to partake of the Lord's Supper, and then only after solemn self examination. - JHD
