Orderly Worship

I saw Today's blip on Hot Metal worship. The entertainment factor gone all out, if you ask me. Jesus didn't say make a better show or music. But to make disciples. It is not about 1 hour show resulting in an alter call response.

Take a look at 1 Corinthians 14:26-40. Everyone should bring one of:
  1. a hymn
  2. a word of instruction
  3. a revelation
  4. a tongue
  5. an interpretation
All for the purpose of strengthening of the church (v26).

Paul goes into tongues and prophesy which are ignored by the evangelical churches which I'll put aside for now (grin). [I think the problem with charismatic churches is ignoring the command of v40: everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.]

Note that in the midst, Paul describe the role of women at church (v33-35): absolute silence (not just vocal but body language). Could this be the cause of our sissy churches?
