What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.
— 1 Corinthians 14:26
Regarding the first sentence of the verse above, do you understand this to be descriptive or prescriptive? Should our worship services be marked by each member of the congregation bringing these things to share with the rest, or was the Apostle simply describing the state of affairs in Corinth?
To ask the question more pointedly, is a church being neglectful to the whole body by not providing opportunity for each member to exercise their gifts during the worship gathering?
If a member comes to worship without bringing “a psalm, a teaching, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation” is this member demonstrating a lack of faith/lack of obedience?
