General Exhortations, Specificity & RPW


Puritan Board Freshman
In thinking through the RPW a friend of mine asked about how the RPW works with general exhortations for believers in worship. E.g., why does Hebrews 10:24-25 not mean that believers should encourage each other by having a chance to speak to each other during the worship service or through testimonies at the front or other such things? Why do general exhortations not allow more "freedom" in the RPW, such as 1 Corinthians 14:26, 40 about doing things in worship that are edifying and orderly, so that it would be ok to put on an edifying puppet show in an orderly fashion? I take these things not to be permissible by the RPW, but I don't understand why not when Scripture seems to speak to encouraging one another in worship.
