Compare

“What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, EACH ONE has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.”

Vs

The assembly sitting quietly in their pews with everyone facing in the direction of a man standing behind a pulpit.

Our churches are so used to having one man, or a few people, do everything, that the idea of every member having something necessary to contribute (Eph. 4:16) is foreign to our practice. We have acted as though the body is one part instead of many parts (1 Cor. 12:14). Priests are to function, and elders are to watch over and equip the priesthood (1 Pet. 2:5; Eph. 4:1 1-12).
