Default Re: Nullification of the function of the body members

When the Lord rebuked the unprofitable servant He told him he should have given His money to the bankers and then the Lord would have received his money with interest. I considered "giving the money to the bankers" to being similar to sharing in a meeting, fellowship with saints, etc. To me "bankers" is similar to the virgins storing oil in their lamps.

So I would agree that speaking in the meeting may be the lowest level of functioning, still it is functioning. Nowhere in the NT does it ever say that spectating, or listening to a message is functioning.

I would certainly consider evangelism, shepherding and teaching as a higher level of functioning, yet speaking in the meeting can be a very good training for these other functions.
