After reading this thread about having a cross in church I wanted to find out what furniture and decorations are allowed during a worship service under the regulative principle. Coming from a non-reformed background and new to the idea of the RPW, here is my working definition of the regulative principle: we should only worship God in ways that are specifically prescribed/allowed by Scripture. (If this definition is wrong please correct me). So what is allowed during a worship service? Can we have pews? Can we have a pulpit? Can we have a stage? etc. This really aren't fececious examples; I don't know of any passages that specifically allow for these things. So what furniture, decorations, etc. are allowed? If you choose to answer, PLEASE include the appropriate Scripture passage. As someone who is trying to grow in their understanding of the historic reformed faith, it would be very helpful. Thanks.
