Sorry if I am interfering in your reply to Br.George.
The replies to item 1-1st :Corinthians 14
34Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
35And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
Item-2: Breaking of bread and wine are as per the scriptures on the first day of the week, started by 1st century saints, but I have to agree with you on one regard with the increase of prosperity , that the gathering on the first day of week has become like a ritual as other denomination making themselves present only on sunday , just having a pinch of the bread which passes by and sipping the wine without any preparation abd just for a formality, this is because due to no proper conviction.
3- During the last century when brethren assemblies started in India, history states that the 1st Lords day (breaking of bread and wine) was done under a tree,God blessed the generations gave us wealth, health and Job, hence to build a good place and a better place for saints to gather and praise our Heavenly Father is not bad. But as I mentioned in other post in my early days while praising and breaking of bread, literally we used to fall prostrate at his feet, but know sitting in chair or by standing , through word we fall prostrate at his feet , the reason we cannot bend our knees, as satan has made it stiff.
