There are fewer verses in the latter — so it has an advantage there already!
But more than that – even though the Corinthian letter bears principles of great value – the greatest value is for churches which are in crisis; suffering from behavioral problems even during their times of gathered worship.
Are we accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative (as the old song goes) — or the reverse?
Does your church have a problem with severe jealousy over the gifts provided by the Holy Spirit intended for the blessing and encouragement of the body of Christ?
Is your church uncontaminated by genuine love for each other that shows in patience, kindness, humility, protection, trust, hope, endurance?
Does your church have women interrupting the speaker to say: “What? I don’t understand. Somebody explain that to me. That doesn’t make any sense”?
Does your church have people generally interrupting the speaker to say: “Oooh! Oooh! I just had a revelation from heaven! Shhh. Shhh. Let me share it!”?
Does your church have people interrupting the speaker, wailing and warbling in languages no one can understand, with no one around who can interpret?
Does your church gather with everyone having their own idea of what the (dis)order of worship should be – and demonstrating their willingness to make theirs happen right now?
All while visitors are sitting there, wondering what in tarnation is going on?
Well, Corinth apparently did. So Paul wrote them to encourage them to calm things down, do things in a decent order, show courtesy, take turns, keep things intelligible, and above all glorify God.
My guess is that people pretty much do that in your church as they do in mine, even if grudgingly sometimes.
So back to the original question.
Do our churches devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching, prayers, breaking of bread?
Are visitors awed with signs and wonders of near-miraculous changes in the lives of people touched?
Do we stick together and share everything we have?
Do we sell our property and possessions and give the proceeds to any among us who has need?
Do we meet every day at our church building campuses, putting them to some use more than just on Sunday?
Do we have each other over to the house frequently to dine, break bread, express gladness with sincere hearts?
Do we praise God constantly?
Do we consistently enjoy the favor of people around us?
Is the Lord adding to our number daily those who are being saved?
Have we got all of that part down yet — done the really difficult, challenging, character-building part of living like Christ in front of others — before we go on to the stage where rules must restrict behavior that isn’t even present?
I think I just answered my own question.
