You don’t have a song when only one note on a keyboard is repeated over and over and all the other notes are kept silent. You have no tune, no melody, no harmony — nothing but a monotone.
–So how can we have Spirit-led unity as the body of Christ when only one person does all the talking and all the other people present are kept quiet? Wouldn’t that be a monomeeting — out of tune with the Spirit’s melody and lacking holy harmony?
–The Bible says that when Christ-followers come together, everyone present has something to share. (See 1 Corinthians 14:26 and/or this link.)
God is too big for one person to proclaim! Everybody in a worship meeting needs to be free to show and tell what God has done!
“I think biblically, it comes through pretty clearly that we’re all priests and we don’t need a mediator. God is too big for one person. We need everyone in full access to God.” – Quote from Church Refugees by Josh Packard
