I don't claim to know what went down at early church meetings...but...neither do you know for sure. It seemed dishonest to try and use Paul's long winded preaching putting that one kid to sleep as an example of the "norm" in worship then
You said: "The early church services were spirit filled, not boring and religious. Many prophecies, words given in tongues, singing in the spirit, real genuine praise and worship."
You also said: "I think that most churches and Christians today would be pretty shocked and uncomfortable the way those in the early church worshiped, far far too lively and spirit filled for them."
Seems to me you have some intimate knowledge about what was going on in the church meetings of the early Church.
Or is what you say just wishful thinking?
There are actually very few references in scripture to what happened in the church meetings. Just 3 that I can remember off the top of my head:
1) Paul tells about whats going on the the Corinthian church. And he condemns it.
2) Ananias and Sapphira. Not really a case of a lively event, but I agree most definitely not boring at all.
3) Eutychus fell out of a window. Doesn't sound too much like a lively church to me. Cant even keep the people awake.
I don't understand why people make up all that stuff about the early church. The Bible never tells us there was prophesy, tongues and lively spirit filled events all around.
You can literally count the number of times the Bible talks about these things happening in the church on the fingers of two hands. Maximum.
And there must have been thousands upon thousands of church meetings.
The plain and simple fact is that besides preaching the gospel, singing hymns and communion we do not know what went on in these meetings and if anything else went on.
And from what we know of the historical hymns, they were not at all dance tunes but sober, respectful and easily identifiable from secular music.
