14 Follow 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; in Spirit He speaketh mysteries. 3 But that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4 He that speaketh in unknown tongue edifieth himself; he that prophesieth edifieth church. 5 I would that ye all spake With Tongues But rather that ye prophesy: For greater 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 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 what is pip or harp? 8 For if 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 be know what is speak? For ye shall speak into air. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in world, and none of them is without signification. 11 Therefore, if I know not 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 may excel to edifying of church. 13 Wherefore let him that in unknown tongue, pray that He may interpret. 14 For If I pray in unknown tongue, my Spirit But my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What is it then? I will pray 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 of thanks, seeing He understandeth not what thou sayest? 17 For thou verily givest well, But other is not edify. 18 I thank my God, 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 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 all that will they not hear me, Saith Lord.

David and his wife, Lindsey, live in Keller, with their four children. There is no lack of discussion and controversy regarding Worship of Christian Church historically and in present age. These arguments are cast in terms of contemporary versus traditional, urban or suburban, hymnals or or Evangelical or Liturgical. At heart of these struggles is question of balance of form and structure in corporate Worship Gathering and dynamic Freedom of Spirit of God to enliven and energize Worship of Body of Christ. This difficulty is not foreign to New Testament Church, as seen in letters of Paul to Corinthians. In His First Letter, apostle Paul addresses host of controversies and overall dysfunction within Corinthian Church and offers rebuke, correction, and edification through continued exaltation of Christ, desire for unity in Body of Christ, and supremacy of 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 context of Free Church Tradition of Worship. Specifically, I discuss how 1 Corinthians 14 provides rationale and scriptural basis for balance of Form and Freedom that is cherished by those in this Free Church Tradition. Admittedly, this is daunting task, requiring appropriate approach through which to view and interpret these passages. My study begins with thorough analysis of text, including discussion of theological thrusts of First Epistle to Corinthians. I address seeming tension inherent in Corinthian Worship practice between ongoing work of Spirit through Charismatic gifts and expressions and Apostles ' desire to circumscribe this outflow within context of edification of 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 picture that 1 Corinthians 14 paints with regards to both Form and Freedom in Worship. Christ reflections on Worship in 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 theological framework of Free Church Tradition. Specifically, I examine 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 suggestions for current Liturgical practice based upon these reflections. These correctives seek to reframe questions that many Worship leaders, Church musicians, and ask when they begin to plan Worship anew each week.
