14 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, But rather that ye may prophesy. 2 For He that speaketh in unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: For no man understandeth him; howbeit in Spirit He speaketh mysteries. 3 But He that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4 He that speaketh in unknown tongue edifieth himself; But he that prophesieth edifieth church. 5 I would that ye all spake With Tongues But rather that ye prophesy: For greater is He that prophesieth than He that speaketh With Tongues, except He interpret, that church may receive edifying. 6 Now, Brethren, If I come unto You speaking With Tongues, What shall I profit You, except I shall speak to You either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by Prophesying, or by doctrine? 7 and even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give distinction in sounds, How should it be know what is pip or harp? 8 For if the trumpet gives uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for battle? 9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by tongue words easy to be understood, How should it be know what is speak? For ye shall speak into the air. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification. 11 Therefore, if I know not the meaning of voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be barbarian unto me. 12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to edifying of church. 13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in unknown tongue, pray that He may interpret. 14 For If I pray in unknown tongue, my Spirit prayeth, But my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What is it then? I will pray With Spirit, and I will pray With understanding also: I will sing With Spirit, and I will sing With understanding also. 16 Else When thou shalt bless With Spirit, How shall He that occupieth room of unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing He understandeth not what thou sayest? 17 For thou verily givest thanks well, But other is not edify. 18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: 19 Yet in church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in unknown tongue. 20 Brethren, Be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice Be ye children, but in understanding Be men. 21 in Law it is write, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto these people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, Saith Lord.

Good Order in Worship

David M. Toledo, PhD, serves as Assistant Dean of Performance Division and Assistant Professor of Music Ministry At Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. David and his wife, Lindsey, live in Keller, Texas, with their four children. There is no lack of discussion and controversy regarding the Worship of the Christian Church historically and in the present age. These arguments are cast in terms of contemporary versus traditional, urban or suburban, hymnals or screens, or Evangelical or Liturgical. At the heart of these struggles is the question of balance of form and structure in corporate Worship Gathering and dynamic Freedom of the Spirit of God to enliven and energize Worship of the Body of Christ. This difficulty is not foreign to the New Testament Church, as seen in the letters of Paul to Corinthians. In His First Letter, apostle Paul addresses a host of controversies and overall dysfunction within the Corinthian Church and offers rebuke, correction, and edification through continued exaltation of Christ, desire for unity in the Body of Christ, and supremacy of the Gospel. My purpose for this paper is to examine critical issues at play within 1 Corinthians 14 in light of current research and frame them within the context of the Free Church Tradition of Worship. Specifically, I discuss how 1 Corinthians 14 provides rationale and scriptural basis for the balance of Form and Freedom that is cherished by those in this Free Church Tradition. Admittedly, this is a daunting task, requiring an appropriate approach through which to view and interpret these passages. My study begins with thorough analysis of the text, including discussion of the theological thrusts of the First Epistle to Corinthians. I address the seeming tension inherent in Corinthian Worship practice between the ongoing work of Spirit through Charismatic gifts and expressions and the Apostles ' desire to circumscribe this outflow within the context of edification of the entire worshiping Community. With this Exegetical and hermeneutical Process complete, I then examine several parallel passages in both Old and New Testaments that work together to complete the picture that 1 Corinthians 14 paints with regards to both Form and Freedom in Worship. Christ reflections on Worship in the Gospel of John serve as representative schema through which to view these complementary passages. Following this analysis, I seek to ground this scriptural reflection within the theological framework of the Free Church Tradition. Specifically, I examine the role of Scriptures, spontaneous prayer, and corporate response of people within this Tradition and how these emphases draw impetus and example from 1 Corinthians 14 passage. Finally, I offer suggestions for current Liturgical practice based upon these reflections. These correctives seek to reframe questions that many Worship leaders, Church musicians, and ministers ask when they begin to plan Worship anew each week.

Tongues Must Be Interpreted

Pulpit Commentary Verse 27.-And that by course; rather, and that in turn. He does not allow more than one glossolalist to speak at a time, and not more than three at most in any one service. This rule alone tends to extinguish disorderly exhibition of tongues. To control passion which leads to it is, sooner or later, to stop manifestation-result which. Paul would probably have been the last to regret, it when its purpose had been accomplish. 1 Corinthians 14: 27 Commentaries Jump to Previous Course Interpret Language make Separately Someone Speak Speaketh Speaking Speaks Three Time Tongue Turn Unknown Use Jump to Next Course Interpret Language make Separately Someone Speak Speaketh Speaking Speaks Three Time Tongue Turn Unknown Use link 1 Corinthians 14: 27 NIV 1 Corinthians 14: 27 NLT 1 Corinthians 14: 27 ESV 1 Corinthians 14: 27 NASB 1 Corinthians 14: 27 KJV 1 Corinthians 14: 27 Bible Apps 1 Corinthians 14: 27 Biblia Paralela 1 Corinthians 14: 27 Chinese Bible 1 Corinthians 14: 27 French Bible 1 Corinthians 14: 27 German Bible Alphabetical: and anyone at be by each If in Interpret it most must one or should Someone Speak Speaks Three Time Tongue Turn two NT Letters: 1 Corinthians 14: 27 If any man Speak in another Language christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and Search Tools

Tongues a Sign to Unbelievers

In 1 Corinthians 14, Paul issues comments on how members of the Corinthian church are to use their miraculous gifts in assembly. They were to not abuse gifts; instead, they were to utilize their gifts with the goal of promoting edification in church. Some skeptics assert that Paul contradicts himself in 1 Corinthians 14: 22-25 as follow: Paul states that tongues are signs to unbelievers. Paul states that prophesying is for Christians, not for unbelievers. When the whole church comes together in one place, and Christians speak with tongues, then those who come who are unbelievers will believe Christians are crazy. Then Paul states that if Christians prophesy, any unbeliever that comes into the assembly has an opportunity to be convinced and convicted by the message of God. Skeptics would assert that Paul had just stated that tongues are for sign to unbelievers and prophesying is for believers. But then it is all switch in verses 24-25 when Christians are exercising the gift of prophesy and they are able to convince and convict non-Christians with inspired message of God. Paul states that the gift of tongues was a sign to non-Christians. Why was the gift of tongues sign to them? There are several reasons: If unbeliever heard first-century Christian speak in a foreign language he had never study, unbeliever would have adequate evidence to conclude it was a miracle. Many Jews on the day of Pentecost were convinced and convicted that the message Galileans were speaking was true and from God because they heard these formally uneducated Galileans speak in their own language. Sign are also meant to be take in a negative tone. In 1 Corinthians 14: 21, Paul quotes Isaiah 28: 11-12. In Isaiah context, Israelites were so hard-hearted and stubborn in breaching their covenant with God that God sent judgment upon them by bringing them into Assyrian captivity. Pauls application from Isaiah: just as the northern kingdom of Israel heard tongues as a sign of judgment, so it would be also to unbelievers in the first century AD that God would render His judgement upon them if they do not obey the gospel of Christ. Paul states in 1 Corinthians 14: 22: Therefore tongues are sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers. Paul then states: But prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe. Question should be ask: What relationship do tongues have for unbelievers that prophesying do not? We can fill in the blank: But prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe. Those in church already believe and obey the gospel. Therefore, they do not need any confirmatory signs to believe. One of the purposes of the miracle was to help people come to belief in message.

Order in Church Meetings

Paul also calls for orderly worship among third groupwomenand of these are among the most controversial words Paul ever write: Women should remain silent in churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law say. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for woman to speak in church. I cannot discuss all the details of the controversy here, but briefly, we may note that Paul already implied in chapter 11 that women were allowed to prophesy, presumably in public meetings. When he writes that women should be silent, he does not mean total and permanent prohibition, just as he does not mean total prohibition when he uses the same Greek word for tongues-speakers and prophets. The problem in Corinthian church meetings was not the problem of who was speaking, but of when. When everyone speak at once, it was chaotic. Part of the problem was that women were talking. So Paul tells them to stop talking in church. He does not mean that they could not sing along with everyone else, or that they could not interpret tongues for someone else, or that they could not prophesy. Rather, just like everyone else, they were to cease all out-of-turn talking. Paul seems to express some frustration with Corinthians when he ask, or does the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reach?. Corinthians claim to be inspire, and act as if they do not need any guidance from Paul or anyone else. They were using inspiration as an excuse for their own excesses. Paul wanted them to see the bigger picture, that they are not only believers on the planet, and they do not have a perfect pipeline to God. Just as God can inspire Corinthians, so he can also inspire Paulbut that does not mean that Corinthians were responding to the Spirit just as accurately as Paul was. Paul had special conversion, special commission, and many more years of experience with Spirit. If anyone thinks they are prophets or otherwise gift by Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is Lords command. But if anyone ignores this, they will themselves be ignore. Paul is invoking his God-give authority over his churches. Paul concludes the chapter: Be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way. We might summarize it this way: Be eager to speak words that instruct, encourage, and build people up. Tongues are not wrong in themselves, but they can be used wrongly. Meetings should be orderly, so they can strengthen the church.

V. The Resurrection

Then is our preaching Vain, and your Faith is also Vain.-Apostles had Preach Risen Christ, their converts had believed in the Risen Christ, but now the proposition is, There is no resurrection; therefore Christ is not rise; therefore preaching and Faith, which are based on the Delusion that He is rise are both Vain and Useless. Argument is still purely appeal to historical evidence supporting historical fact, and to consequences involved in denying that fact. Pulpit Commentary Verse 14.-Vain. You accept our proclamation, yet it would be utterly Void if its central testimony was false. Word translating then has sort of ironic force-after all, or it seem. The whole argument is at once argumentum ad hominem and reductio ad absurdum. Your Faith is also Vain. For it would be Faith in crucified man, not in Risen Christ. 1 Corinthians 15: 14 Commentaries Jump to Previous Christ Dead Delusion Effect Faith follow Good Indeed News Preach Preaching raise Risen Useless Vain Void Jump to Next Christ Dead Delusion Effect Faith follow Good Indeed News Preach Preaching raise Risen Useless Vain Void link 1 Corinthians 15: 14 NIV 1 Corinthians 15: 14 NLT 1 Corinthians 15: 14 ESV 1 Corinthians 15: 14 NASB 1 Corinthians 15: 14 KJV 1 Corinthians 15: 14 Bible Apps 1 Corinthians 15: 14 Biblia Paralela 1 Corinthians 15: 14 Chinese Bible 1 Corinthians 15: 14 French Bible 1 Corinthians 15: 14 German Bible Alphabetical: also and been Christ Faith has If is not our Preaching raise so then Useless Vain your NT Letters: 1 Corinthians 15: 14 If Christ has not been raise then christian Bible Study Resources, Dictionary, Concordance and Search Tools

Spiritual Gifts

The fourth list of spiritual gifts is found in 1 Corinthians 14: 26. This is an introductory statement of a long paragraph which I believe ends at the end of this chapter. However, for the purpose of this discussion, we can look at just this one verse: in this passage, Paul seems to list how various people implement their gifts, and not necessarily gifts themselves. Thus, lessons would be related to teaching, and revelations would be related to prophecy. Tongue and interepretation seem to be directly related to gifts with the same names. But what about hymn? Perhaps hymn would be a method of implementing gifts of exhortation, or words of knowledge, or some other gift. Again, this list differs from previous lists in this section of 1 Corinthians and it also differs from the list of spiritual gifts in Romans 12. What is the purpose of this list? In this list of spiritual gifts, or perhaps in this list of ways to implement spiritual gifts, emphasis is on the participation of each person, and on the purpose of each person emphasis. As each person comes together with other believers ready to exercise their various spiritual gifts, they all have one purpose in mind: building up other believers, that is, helping them mature to Jesus Christ. After teaching on spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12, Paul tells believers in Corinth that love must be the foundation of everything that they do and say. Remember that Paul also includes instructions about love with spiritual gifts in Romans 12. This teaching on love should not be considered to be separate from spiritual gifts, but is a very important part of Paul's teaching about spiritual gifts. It is impossible to properly exercise spiritual gifts without understanding and exercising love first. Next, after teaching about love, Paul distinguishes between gifts that are easily understandable and gifts that are not understandable. When church meet together, only gifts that are understandable should be exercise, because only understandable gifts can build up church. Following 1 Corinthians 14: 26, Paul gives guidelines to help believers build up one another. These guidelines follow from the character of God, whose character is one of peace, not of disturbance. Thus, even as everyone comes together ready to build up others, there still needs to be order so that everyone can participate and everyone can be edify. Therefore, Paul uses the list of spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 14: 26 to give examples of how believers can exercise their spiritual gifts when church meets together. However, list is punctuated with a command to make sure that everything do is done for the purpose of edifying other believers.
