Church Slavonic is not like Shakespeare's English. In fact, it is Old Bulgarian/Macedonian from about 1200 years ago. It relates to contemporary Ukrainian/Belarusian/Russian the same way Wulifa's Gothic relates to English.
Except the Anglo-Saxons never used Gothic as their literary standard.

Eastern Slavs did not use Church Slavonic that way either.
Yes, they did.  The vestiges still remain in modern Russian.

Even since Nestor written documents begin to have distinct differences from liturgical languages. CS was never an official language.
Ever since Cyril and Methodius written documents begin to have distinct differences.

Lunt talks about it in his grammar, that Old Church Slavonic has to be hypothesized from the variants, because the vernacular substratum of West, South and East Slaovnic was there from the beginning.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
