How is it then brothers? When you come together, everyone of you has a psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. 

What do you think this verse means? Thanks.

I think the mean what it says. This is how the early church did things. Now, where I am, we do the same, and more!

Sadly, the ceasationists and liturgists and programmers have outlawed or at least overuled this sort of spontaneous input from their congregations. However I am happy to say when those who come together here for simple in-home fellowship participate in serving our local expression of the body of Christ, it is with the consensus that edification by these means is to be endorsed but not forced.

This kind of thing rarely happens in churches.. But coming to forums online is closer to what the coming together of the Saints was like in the early church.. Closer but not the same..

"Let all things be done unto edifying", is what stands out to me. Whatever each member (part) of the body shares with the rest of the body, it should 'edify', (An 'edifice' is a structural part of a building, and as a carpenter I have built such) It is designed to hold up other parts of the building (body). To support.   The scripture indicates to me that each has a part, listed above, to share with the other parts, and edify them. Not glory in their own gift, but with order, that other members are lifted  up. (BLESSED). Each church has it's own method to implement this, to keep order as the scripture conveys. Or Not.  God's creation is ordered, not having even one rogue molecule within His universe.  Some churches ignore this, and things get out of control. Ck out YouTube.         Edify; to build up-building-structure-hold up-confirm-lift up        Not tear down one another.

What then is the conclusion, brothers? Whenever you come together, each one has a psalm, a teaching, a revelation, another language, or an interpretation. All things must be done for edification.

Looking at the context of what went before and after, it appears to be speaking to an orderly use of the gifts, especially tongues and their interpretation.

To bad the 'church' doesn't allow for this. A crying shame.

Some do, some don't. The Church I 'went forward' in was very much into the gifts at work, but also were into the 'heavy handed' Shepherding Movement. (Derek Prince, Bob Mumford, Don Basham etc.)
