Explain First Corinthians, chapter 7, verses 1 and 9?

Questions 372 & 373 (COD Page 1127)

  372. Would you please explain First Corinthians, chapter 7, verse 1 and 9? (Get it, Brother Neville, First Corinthians,chapter 7, verse 1, now.)

 373. And will every true believer do the works that Jesus said, as stated in Saint John 14:12 (Not exactly. No!): heal the sick, cast out devils, raise the dead (I don’t thinkthat’s in Saint John 14, but it’s all right. It’s Mark 16.), or–or are…is this only to be Elijah? Must the believer do all that…of this…do really…that really believe? And if he really is a real believer, will he raise the dead and do great miracles?

301  Now, that is among the believers. See? Every man doesn’t have those gifts, and don’t mean that just one person will do it; there’ll be groups of people. Like for instance, what if–if we had a little girl here in the church, or a little boy, or somebody that we love real well, and life would go out of them. The whole church would get together, and they’d go to pray and fasting: “Lord, have mercy on that child.” See? God could raise it up.

302  How many ever read the Nicaea Fathers and them? You know, that’s the way they did it in the early church. They’d all get together, you know, and even raise up their pastor sometime and different ones like that, if God seen fit to do it; but they did it.

I’d rather be wrong in my doctrine and right in my heart. God will respect it more. So if a man is wrong, what of it? Help him. He needs help. Love him. 

If you can’t love your enemy the same as you love those who love you, you’re no better off than the publicans. That’s right. That’s what the Church has failed to get. I hope you get it tonight. I hope you see what I’m talking about.

It’s back to love, redeeming love. All the other things are fine, but we got to come back to fellowship with one another. 

And people said I fight organizations. I do not. I fight that system in there that’s breaking up brotherhood. I’ve always done it. And I always will do it. That’s right. That thing that separates brotherhood– 

Let us come together. Let’s be brothers. If I could see every church in this city, every church in the world come like we was the other morning (that ministerial breakfast), when I seen the Oneness, Twoness, Threeness and all, hugging one another, their arms around one another, I’d say, like Simeon of old, “Lord, let Thy servant depart in peace, for my eyes have seen Thy salvation.” That’s right”
