Philip 2:5-7 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Philip 3:17 ¶ Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
2Thess 3:9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
I know the context of the above verses don't directly apply but the broader understanding of following the example of others is there.
So when we read the scriptures though John the baptist alluded to him as one crying in the wilderness I don't think he ever yelled and screamed as they do today. I don't think Jesus or Paul did either as I find no place where any of the apostles or disciples did.
So why are men today screaming and yelling in the Pulpit?
1Cor 14:37-40 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.
Does it seem to go against the commandment to do all things decently and in order. Yelling and screaming is not a decent or an orderly activity would you not agree?
