In the Bible, believers in Jesus Christ met for church in each other's homes, and every man was allowed a turn to speak in the meeting. This way of doing things was harder and took more effort than what we're used to.

For example, the men in the church needed to study the scriptures more than we do, in order to have something helpful to say to everyone. And the people had to expend some effort to show hospitality to their spiritual brothers and sisters, some of whom really needed it. Doing things this way made it so the people in a church naturally got to know each other pretty well. And since it made everyone more mindful of helping the others in the church, they grew to care about each other more than we do.

The very best way to learn the truth is to study the Bible for yourself, and have faith in what it says.
