Hahaha...LL, the GB/FDS have taught away the gifts because THEY DO NOT POSSES ANY OF THEM!<quoted text>
Its simple Susie..The gifts are given for the building up of the Body in love..
You have to realize the organization has told them they are not the BODY...most of them don't confess to being part of the Body in partaking of the BREAD of Christ...so why would they want to build something up they don't BELIEVE they are.
Those scriptures are for us..Believers.
Thats why they don't build up the body...they can't!
They can't do anything because they ARE APART FROM CHRIST!
They have divided up the body and are now APART/SEPARATED from and NOT IN UNION with Christ.
(John 15:5) "I am the vine, YOU are the branches. He that remains in union with me, and I in union with him, this one bears much fruit; BECAUSE APART FROM ME YOU CAN DO NOTHING AT ALL."
