“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let all things be done decently and in order.” - 1 Corinthians 14:33,40
Comment:

God does His things in ways that are proper, logical and perfect.. This understanding encouraged early scientists to research into the workings of created things from which mankind has benefited immensely. In His organization, God Almighty has laid out the order in which His work should be done and in which His worshippers should conduct themselves. This we must follow to avoid confusion or reproach. The orderliness in Jehovah's plan of salvation for mankind can however only be understood by those who know the truth and therefore preach right doctrines. - John 17:16,17, 1 Timothy 4:1-5.

God has also established a hierarchy for the running of His organization. In time of old, He directed that cases should be handled by the Levites and that their directives should be obeyed. (Deuteronomy 21:5; 17:8-12) Also, Moses the Prophet appointed men who would be captains over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. In the time of our Lord Jesus Christ, he directed that if one has a matter against his neighbour he should call him and discuss the matter with him. If he refuses, he should call two or three other people and after that, tell the elders of the Church. That is orderliness.

St. Paul stated, “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, ...He then asked,  “Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? …But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.” - 1 Corinthians 12:28-31.
