Context Mark. He is not saying that everything is commanded. Context- doing all things decently, in order, and for edification is the command. He is not commanding them to speak in tongues, prophesy, interpret, pray, sing, or anything else. He does command them in verse one to pursue love and spiritual gifts. Verse 12 he appears to command seeking to excel for edification. He commands the speaker of tongues to pray for interpretation in verse 13. Verse 20 has a command. Verse 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 34, 35, 38-40 all appear to have commands. This is just off the top of my head. I haven't verified from the Greek yet. You do know what the imperative mode in the Greek language is don't you?<quoted text>
"These are not COMMANDS Mark"
Thanx for all the scriptures you gave to back up your statement.
I will take Pauls words...1Co 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
The command in verse 37 appears to be, "let him acknowledge". PS-what is a psalm? And is it a charismatic gift as Johnny Robertson alluded to in "New Guys instrumental Debate"?
