From a just-received e-mail.

I hear it everywhere: the stress and tension of church ministry, vanishing values, families falling apart, time honored assumptions falling by the wayside, conflict between traditional and progressive thought, the pace of life. No one can escape the challenges facing us as we prepare for the next century.

Church leaders, elders and ministers, are being pounded on all sides. Elders face weekly meetings and "special" church events, counseling, trouble shooting, refereeing disagreements between church members, teaching, the inevitable surprises that come up.

Ministers face overwhelming expectations while being hampered by unworkable systems. Some dash into the fray with lots of heart and too few skills -- and get demolished. Too many good ministers burn out or give up. Some become adversarial, get fired, and wind up with broken spirits and broken churches. Others plod on, but with little hope.

In spite of all the real world conditions, there is reason to hope. Right now, armies of fresh leadership recruits, sensing both the urgency of God's mission and the rapidly changing terrain of the playing field, are rising up in hot pursuit of the heart and the skills to lead their churches into the 21st Century in the way Jesus would want them led.

I could not be more hopeful about the future. God is using me daily as an encourager as a mentor and coach for equipping leaders in His Kingdom. It is my full-time passion. And, I'm bringing a network of worldclass cohorts along with me.

The Jesus Proposal Rubel Shelly and John York

This is quite identical to the DISCIPLING DILEMA which pervades the Crossroads, Boston church of Christ and the Internationaly church of Christ..

Lynn Anderson: The first annual National Shepherd's Clinic will be held in San Antonio June 19-21, 2003 at Northside Church of Christ.

A WORD FROM LYNN ANDERSON "Join me and hundreds of other church leaders for two rich days: Shepherding skills, Case studies from churches in transition, Moving from control to empowerment, Litigation-proofing your church....and much more!"

I believe that it is a fact that the MINISTERS slipped this thingy WITHOUT letting the SHEPHERDS do any shepherding. That is the scam: pick the most conservative church of Christ and this INTENDS to spread the propaganda that SEE, even the conservatives agree with this new DISCIPLING DILEMA.

God in Jesus Christ died to EMPOWER US. That power consisted in REST from the burden laded by the CLERGY planning schemes and scams to manage your time and money. The burden is defined as "spiritual anxiety created by religious ritual." That anxiety is LIFTING UP in excitement, created by charismatic speaking and music and the goal is the end product called HERESY. Heresy means to MAKE a choice to lift up others FOR THEIR OWN USES.

Rest is the Greek PAUO and is a word almost devoted to stopping the speaking, stop the singing, stop the music: just stop. See how music is used by heretics who make YOUR choices for you--and for a price.

No clergy person has any right to attempt to regiment your lives to make you MORE PRODUCTIVE. Because the LAW OF GIVING is a legalistic lie, no one has any authority from God to take one widow's mite from you to regulate your lives as a cult.

Litigation has become a touchy issue as people follow the program to INFILTRATE and DIVERT and "steal the church houses of widows." The plan is to turn increasingly COMMERCIAL or TRAFFICKING groups away from the Word and HIS DOCTRINE. This demands that the church become a CORPORATION so that the members cannot sue when the BOARD OF DIRECTORS steals their property. I am aware of a church which lied about the bylaws: if we prohibit instrumental music "somebody" will GIT us for being sectarian. They used a lawyer, lobbying and lying about the Bible and all of church history to dominate and drive the old people out into the cold or "lose their support group."

Somehow the old shepherds who had to "be more apt to teach the Bible than apt to chase a coon" will be SHIFTED into praying an shepherding the 'ministers' who are best qualified by training and charisma to be THE leaders. THE LEADER will make the decisions, fire the deacon, USE women as leaders and hire his bonded buddies to ride on the backs of widows and honest working people who OWE these locusts absolutely NOTHING. The diakonos defines the same TEACHING duty as the elders: if they can FIRE the male deacons they can and will fire or HAND PICK the elders to be their "board of directors" to shepherd the CHIEF shepherds.

You will be under dominion theology and YOU will be an outsider until you agree to be the watchtower slave. Rubel Shelly and John York make it clear that in the community meaning commune individuals have no right to read the Bible, interpret it or speak it outsode of the "community." As part of the commune you will not get to speak it either as these people claim to be PARTNERING with God to "work out a new set of Scriptures just like those in the first century."

Lynn Anderson: "More than 50 churches were represented.

"Participants from Connecticut to California, Washington State to Florida - even a Canadian and a New Zealander!

"Allison Bagley, Operations Manager of Hope Network, did a very professional job of planning and co-coordinating the entire event. She was aided by the dedicated staff and ministers from the Northside Church of Christ, plus an array of other San Antonio volunteers.

The SHEPHERDS seem to be MISSING in this hostile takeover. The STAFF and MINISTERS have a COMMERCIAL but NO BIBLICAL right to exist. How can 'youngers' dedicated to REMOVING the elders (superentendants) EXILE the elders to being SHEPHERDS of the UNLAWFUL STAFF INFECTION?

"The sessions addressed Transitioning: Moving church leadership style from a Managing Board to a Shepherd's Circle of shepherding, mentoring and equipping. The agenda featured eight case studies from congregations at one stage or another along "Transition Trail" -- sharing both successes and difficulties.

Speaking of the last PRAYERFUL BRINKMANSHIP:

"Now we had demon energized groups being brought into accountability while the word of God was twisted, laid down, compromised, and changed, and what took center stage was "the Testimony" of each of us of what God had done.

Leadership of whatever denomination was put down through abusive denunciation, oppression, lies and deceits, and the new leadership was put in place which offered people "the freedom of the Spirit," while the opposite was true.

"The churches basically no longer exist and truth is trampled in the streets because God's appointed ministers in the denominations have had their authority usurped because all they did was preach the "dull," simple gospel.

"It was all planned out by the Catholic Church, and energized by the "New Pentecost" of the Pope at the time.

"People's lives and minds and spirits were now being controlled, and that is what we have today: a Zombie like, controlled global Church who just loves one another, brought about through the tactics of spiritual manipulators and mind control agents energized by hell. Looking back at it, it is amazing after what I learned concerning verbal abuse and control .

"The same 15 points were used to control all the denominations by drawing people out of them "into the new exciting things God was doing" in order to control them. Today they are just that, and that's why many can't hear the truth when you give it to them.

Change Agents are now CUNNINGLY hidden under Agents to TRANSITION YOUR CHURCH. Here is the AGENDA of ACU the Manufacturing Plant:

Carrol D. Osburn: On pages 14-15: "With so many questions flying around and so much uncertainty being expressed in various quarters, what an opportunity for the various faculties of our Christian colleges and universities to help shape the future! These are the best of times to be involved in Christian education!

If we are to have a truly significant impact upon the national and international scene,

faculties of religion must play leading prophetic roles in channeling and facilitating whatever changes loom ahead.

p. 14-15 An outdated curriculum from a sectarian past that placed emphasis upon transmitting doctrinaire positions will not suffice if we would engage convincingly the larger arenas of current religious thought.  

Our graduate programs must train students how to think, to investigate the biblical text afresh, to feel the pulse of the world around them, to sense where things ought to go,

and provide the kind of experiences that will enable servants to go out into churches and communities and provide direction.

Lynn Anderson: In addition mini-workshops addressed: Moving your church from control to empowerment, Litigation-proofing your church,

and Transitioning your church.
Also
Chris Seidman and Ronnie Norman presented strong keynote addresses.

Transition n 1: the act of passing from one state or place to the next [syn: {passage}] 2: an event that results in a transformation [syn: {conversion}, {changeover}] 3: a change from one place or state or subject or stage to another 4: a musical passage moving from one key to another [syn: {modulation}] 5: a passage that connects a topic to one that follows

Transitioning includes:

Removing the Deacons and replacing with "on demand" deacons and deaconesses to fill a need.

Removing the ELDERS to an advisory board to do the MINISTERING for which the "ministers become masters" are paid.

Appointing "assimilated" new Shepherding Elders.

The STAFF take over and make decisions about hiring NEW STAFF to "guarantee continuity" with the USURPING "Senior Pastor."

The elders will not be consulted when you open the gates to let the wolves in.

Women will take over leadership roles.

Musical worship teams and then instruments will take over to feed the corrupt and corrupting Professional musicians in fulfillment of the end time harlot church.

Baptism will be repudiated.

You will be given a SHEPHERD to collect data for future CONTROL just like the Crossroads cult.

You will be WED about your life OUTSIDE of the assembly and you will be disciplined about your business and sexual lives. In short, you will be "regenerated through external means" in fulfillment of the Tower of Babylon model.

You will be driven to TITHING and they WILL KNOW how much you SHOULD be given.

Rubel Shelly in a big fan of Bob Mumford:

Pat Robertson wrote an Open Letter to Bob Mumford on June 27, 1975, in which he complained about abuses associated with the discipleship-shepherd-submission teaching.

He mentioned indivIduals who submit to shepherds instead of becoming responsible church members. He mentioned those who have little to say about Jesus

but much about their relationship and submission to their shepherd.

He told of a secretary at the Christian Broadcasting Network who had been turned into an emotional cripple by this movement. He said that she scarcely could type a letter without a long distance call to her shepherd. Robertson went on to tell about wealthy Christians being forced by their shepherds to reveal confidential details of their financial and family life.

He told of one individual who was warned that he would miss out on the Kingdom of God and be ruined spiritually, physically, and financially if he did not submit to the shepherd's authority.

This is another term from NAVIGATING THE WINDS OF CHANGE to, in the words of Rubel Shelly "become as much like the world as possible to attract the world. But, then not just turning elders into SHEPHERDS FOR THE MINISTERS (Rubel Shelly's confession) changing the entire order of the church to Lynn Anderson's COMMERCIAL MODEL.

I noticed that Chris Seidman is part of this NATIONAL SHEPHERDING NETWORK. He is the preacher of Farmer's branch.

His is the TYPICAL new Catholic system. Chris makes a suggestion and submits a WHITE PATER defending instrumental music. The "worship minister" sent me sent me a copy for review thinking that I could be changed by deliberate lying about EVERY musical term in the Bible.

In addition, they have restored Sabbath worship with instrumental music.

I reviewed various parts here.

White Paper defending Instrumental Music: Farmer's Branch Preacher's rationale for INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC to lead people to Christ. We will see similar beliefs from many ancient pagan religions. However, we know of no Jewish or pagan Holy Place into which the MUSICIANS could go.

White Paper defending Instrumental Music Part B:

Farmer's Branch Church of Christ: The words "psallo" and "psalmos" as used in secular Greek literature from the 5th century B.C. to the 2nd century A.D.

apparently never referred to singing but only to the playing or the sound of an instrument.

That is a FALSEHOOD. Nevertheless, Paul was careful to put the SPEAKING or PREACHING in the external sense and SINGING and MELODY in the heart or spirit as the ONLY place God looks for worship.

Singing or EXTERNAL odeing means to "create mental excitement." This was the BURDEN laded on the people by the LADERS. The word is quite identical to the LIFTING UP word or AEIRO which means to "Lift them up to cut their throat." That had a background in animal sacrifices where the loude NOISE Makers were identified as PARASITES. This is the meaning of HERESY. You create excitement, to LIFT THEM UP as HERESY which means to USE THEM FOR YOUR OWN PURPOSES. See the Music-Heresy proof.

Farmer's Branch Experimenting with music

When the Israelites rose up to PLAY at Mount Sinai it was the MUSICAL IDOLATRY of Egypt.

They rose up to play in 'MUSICAL IDOLATRY' and in consequence of this,

the feasts were prescribed: kai eufrainonto, fhsin: dia touto kai eortai.-'Epishmainetai might be rendered, "he marks,"

"puts a mark upon it" (so the innovator, who substitutes

The use of MUSICAL or INSTRUMENT NAMES as proof. The only evidence and tradition is that Satan or Lucifer used musical instruments to divert worship by the angels from God to HERself. Therefore, all musical terms and names of instruments have Satanic, warfare, sacrificing the types of Jesus Christ, prostitutes and Sodomites who plagued the tempes.

MARTIN LUTHER REPUDIATES THE NEO-PAGAN WORSHIP PROMOTED BY MAX LUCADO, RUBEL SHELLY AND LYNN ANDERSON.

For instance, the distracted world attempts to serve God by setting apart houses, churches, cloisters; vestures, gold-trimmed, silk and [50] every other kind;

silver vessels and images; bells and organs, candles and lamps;

the money for which expense should have been appropriated to the poor if the object was to make an offering to God.

Further, it keeps up a muttering and wailing in the churches day and night.

But true praise and honor of God, a service that cannot be confined to place or person, is quietly ignored the world over.

The pretenses of priests and monks about their system of exercises being service to the Lord, are false and delusive. Luther on Romans 15

Ronnie Norman promotes the leadership roles of women. And has selected Shepherding Elders and added instrumental music at First Colony Church of Christ.

Quotes from Questions asked on Lynn Anderson's Forum:

Lynn Anderson: Accountability Group (no more than 3) What are some good questions to ask each time 2 or 3 of us men meet to hold each other accountable. What are the do's and don'ts of such a commitment...size limits...suggestions for such a commitment. If women want to do this, what accountability questions would be asked in this case? Your ideas and experiences and suggested resources please. We are ministers wanting to lead holy lives before our community in the hope that we may have opportunities to minister and teach.

Accountability Group (no more than 3) Maybe something I say about this can be of help.
I think we all know that
accountability is an essential part of Christianity in that we are to help each other grow and become sharpened as iron sharpens iron.

Christ ordained DIDACHE or teaching of the WORD as a way to sharpen us but NOT with a rod of iron.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb.4:12

And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Re.1:16

Lynn Anderson: Accountability questions need to be positive focused, direct, and geared toward motivating people to grow.

This type of accountability can be hard but it is where people really grow. Especially us ministers have a hard time admitting our faults for fear of discovery and losing our jobs and/or reputations. The end result is that many of us live double lives with secret sin being our second god that we worship when no one else is looking.

On the contrary, in the CHRISTIAN SYSTEM the word is MINISTER which undergirds people. Accountability presumes that someone as a superior status by which they call others into account. This is what the shepherding, mentoring or discipling schemes and scams claim as their right over inferiors. Accountability has this meaning.

Dikaisis, es, h, setting right, doing justice to: hence,

1. condemnation, punishment, Th.8.66, D.C.40.43 (pl.), cj. in Plu.2.421d.
2.
plea of legal right, justification, Lys.9.8, cf. Harp.
3.
making or accounting righteous, justification, Ep.Rom.4.25, etc.
II.
demand of right or as of right, just claim, Th.1.141, Plu.Demetr.18.
III.

What are your INTENTIONS if the inferior does not submit to the superior who may be wacko?

Th.1.141 Thucydides, The Peloponnesian War

Make your decision therefore at once, either to submit before you are harmed, or if we are to go to war, as I for one think we ought, to do so without caring whether the ostensible cause be great or small, resolved against making concessions or consenting to a precarious tenure of our possessions. For all claims from an equal, urged upon a neighbor as commands, before any attempt at legal settlement, be they great or be they small, have only one meaning, and that is slavery.

Lynn Anderson: Obviously in some cases this deeper type of accountability is only appropriate within all male or all female groups.

Accountability groups only work when there is trust and openness. This may take a while to develop.

Give it time and start slow until you feel that your relationship can progress into these more intimate areas.

Here's the list from Steve Farrar's "Point Man" (Promise Keepers)

1. Have you been with a woman this week in such a way that was inappropriate or could have looked to others that you were using poor judgment?

2. Have you been completely above reproach in all your financial dealings this week?
3. Have you
exposed yourself to any explicit material this week?
4. Have you spent daily time in prayer and in the Scriptures this week?
5. Have you
fulfilled the mandate of your calling this week?
6. Have you taken time off to be with your family this week?
7. Have you just lied to me?

This is CROSSROADS, Boston Church of Christ and the International Church of Christ.

The Jewish clergy LADED the people down as "one loads up a pack animal." Jesus died to give us REST. The BURDEN was "spiritual anxiety created by religious ritual." Now, you may have the masculine Jesus having trouble with people who make their OWN OCCUPATION trying to put Saddles on the Back of people and ask them about their SEX LIVES!

THE ELDERS TEACH THE WORD: JESUS THROUGH THE WORD DOES THE SHEPHERDING AND DISCIPLINING. YOU DON'T SPREAD STAFF INFECTION RIDING THE UNLAWFUL LAW OF GIVING BY IMPOSING "MINISTERS" TO BE THEIR "MASTERS."

THERE IS NO ROLE IN THE CHURCH OF CHRIST FOR THIS INTRUSION BECAUSE THE PEDDLARS OF THIS SYSTEM WILL HASTEN TO RADICALLY RESTRUCTURE YOUR CHURCH.

Asked if he agreed with Max Lucado's changing the name of the church and his views that baptism was not required, Lynn did the Change Agent Shuffle and refused to "give an answer for the HOPE he is leading others to have in" REGENERATING LIVES THROUGH EXTERNAL MEANS.

Lynn Anderson: Actually, Hope Network Ministries exists to coach, mentor and equip spiritual leaders. For that reason we do not use our web site to process doctrinal issues,

denominational peculiarities or personalities.

Rather we use this forum to encourage christian leaders, share ministry resources, coach and respond to questions regarding strategies, systems, skills etc. - things of this nature.

A DEMAGOGUE is defined as one who uses THE POPULAR SHOWS to gain his influence.

Plato, Laws

But as to all those who have become like ravening beasts, and who, besides holding that the gods are negligent

[909b] or open to bribes, despise men, charming the souls of many of the living, and claiming that they charm the souls of the dead, and promising to persuade the gods by bewitching them, as it were, with sacrifices, prayers and incantations,

and who try thus to wreck utterly not only individuals, but whole families and States for the sake of money,--if any of these men be pronounced guilty, the court shall order him to be imprisoned according to law in the mid-country jail,

[908d] and by ridiculing other people will probably convert others to its views, unless it meets with punishment, the other class, while holding the same opinions as the former, yet being specially "gifted by nature'' and being full of craft and guile, is the class out of which are manufactured many diviners and experts in all manner of jugglery; and from it, too, there spring sometimes tyrants and demagogues and generals,

and those who plot by means of peculiar mystic rites of their own, and the devices of those who are called "sophists." Of these there may be many kinds;

[908e] but those which call for legislation are two, of which the "ironic" kind commits sins that deserve not one death only or two, while the other kind requires both admonition and imprisonment.

Likewise also the belief that the gods are neglectful breeds two other kinds of impiety; and the belief in their being open to bribes, other two.

These kinds being thus distinguished, those criminals who suffer from folly, being devoid of evil disposition and character, shall be placed by the judge according to law in the reformatory for a period of not less than five years...

Lynn Anderson: So, as you can see from our responses to other questions of doctrinal or denominational issues or personalities -

we suggest that you explore some other venue for discussion.

STRATEGY is a warfare word just as in MAKING MELODY.

Christ the Spirit had the SPIRIT WITHOUT MEASURE because He SPOKE only what the "father" or Thought (within Him) said. Only by teaching THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT can a person be a CHRISTIAN shepherd. If he does not speak what Jesus spoke then Jesus defines him as a SON OF SATAN who is a LIAR. What is a LIAR? A liar is anyone who SPEAKS ON HIS OWN.

The church of Christ among the Restorers as well as it was with John Calvin was A School of the Bible and of Christ. It was also a time and place of prayer which was often identical to HYMNING the inspired text. The process was defined to Timoth who was to give attendance (a worship word) to the public reading of the Word and discussing it and making the DOCTRINE contained very clear. ANYTHING beyond that is of the Devil because it is the "commandment of men" like the Pharisees who intended to TRAFFICK in the free Water of the Word (Isaiah 55)

Of Course, Max Lucado returned from Brazil where some returned having been more converted to SPIRITISM than having converted the Spiritists. Max Lucado pretty much rejects everything but his FICTIONAL rewrite of about everything. Lynn refused to confess that he works with Max Lucado, Rubel Shelly and others who absolutely reject the Bible as authority for faith and practice.

MAX LUCADO rejects the power of Believing, Repenting, Confessing and Baptism. Under the ploy of JUST JESUS he repudiates the VERY COMMANDS of Jesus:

Max Lucado: The Thief on the Cross: Max Lucado teaches that the thief on the cross was saved just by praying. He believes that Jesus issued the invitation of the RESURRECTED Christ and that the thief responded. Therefore, this is the exception to the rule that only baptized believers are saved. Max claims that it DRIVES legalists MAD but you have to be MAD to repudiate the clear Biblical and historical meaning. Zwingli was another PROPHET who invented BELIEVER'S BAPTISM of FAITH ONLY because, he said in effect, "all that came before me were thieves and liars." However, because the Baptist system is GNOSTIC and UNIQUELY AMERICAN, their baptism is identical to PAGAN BAPTISM.

Max Lucado: Salvation by Trust? All they needed to do was to trust him to save them. All those who believe this are reborn!

Max Lucado says of Romans 6 that baptism does not save

Is Max Lucado correct? Baptism a Pledge: Max says:

"I believe in baptism. Jesus was baptized. The Bible teaches baptism. I just don't believe that baptism saves you. I believe that Jesus Christ saves us. And baptism is one of those ways we celebrate our salvation. It's really the initial step of the faithful believer."

Max claims that WE pledge to God to be good people. However, the Word is that we REQUEST A clear conscience or A holy spirit by calling upon God

Max Lucado Baptism Washed Away at Jubilee 97: At Jubilee 97 Max Lucado preached a system which denies baptism in order to or for the remission of sins. Even the sleeping dogs woke up momentarily.

Shepherding Max Lucado Oak Hills: Max Lucado, promoter of Promise Keepers now seems to be using some of the same CULTIC SHEPHERDING language:

Therefore, the SHEPHERDING or DISCIPLING dilema people will usually be followed as with Max Lucado's church with a DITTO HEAD "younger" to replace the "elders" at an UNLAWFUL salary. They will then be the ELDERS or BISHOPS while the elders become, in the words of Rubel Shelly, the shepherds of the huge STAFF INFECTION which will bring you into the Promise Keeper's MOTHER church for the city.

Our Review of Lynn Anderson:

Rubel Shelly quoting Lynn Anderson on turning to IMAGES and SYMBOLS: This moves you to an effeminate and WORSE leadership and form of what they laughingly call "worship."

The mind-set of the times threatens to strip our faith of symbols, rituals, dramas, mystery, poetry, and story,

which say about life and God what logic and reason and rationalism can never say. See Volkism

This is what we told you: The right, effeminate, irrational, musical and artistic is not to be restored as a LUCIFERIAN system. The REASON and RATIONAL can never SAY what the sexually explicit SYMBOLS can say. But this repudiates the fact that SPIRITUAL means RATIONAL.

That is why most churches still have a MASCULINE leadership and will never BOW to an effeminate, truly repulsive intrusion into the private lives of the people.

Of course, this in fulfillment of the first and end time Babylon whore religion which attempted to DESTROY the masculine God of Rationalism (spirituality) and reason by substituting a FEMINE or FEMINIST or EFFEMINATE goddess of symbolism.

This is in 100% fulfillment of CIRCE who is worshiped each time we say CHURCH. Jesus established A SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE and not a Babylonian system FULLY IN VIEW in this total repudiation of even the MIND of Christ which was The Holy Spirit.

Karen Armstrong, in A History of God, shows how the pagan clergy attempted to neutralize the One God Who was spoken of as male:

"God lay beyond 'gender' but, as in the Enuma Elish, each pair of emanations consisted of a male and female--a scheme which attempted to neutralize the masculine tenor of more conventional monotheism. Each pair of emanations grew weaker and more attenuated, since they were getting even further from their divine Source." (p. 95)

Speaking of the mystics, Armstrong showed how the new, gender-neutral gods are to be worshipped:

"This God is to be approached through the imagination and can be seen as a kind of art form, akin to the other great artistic symbols that have expressed the ineffable mystery, beauty and the value of life.

Mystics have used music, dancing, poetry, fiction, stories, painting, sculpture and architecture to express this Reality which goes beyond concepts." (P. 396)

Carrol D. Osburn on Women: The ACU Agenda: To Prophetic roles, Channelers and Facilitators the method of subverting the 'hierarchial" views of Jesus and Paul is: "Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved "by small, often unnoticed acts of SUBVERSION. Numerous such incremental changes, like EROSION, will eventually bring down the FORTRESS " ( p. 32).

Of course, the Synagogue of Christ is related TOTALLY to SPIRITUAL CONCEPTS. They are all contained in the Words of Christ because He is the Spirit who is Holy. Those who get their signs and symbols and actually NEW VISIONS and "hearing the audible voice of God" fulfill the rhetoricial and sOPHISts and craftsmen (techne) who will go back into hell with the holy whore. Just as in all of the pagan temples they USE flute- players (prostitutes), musicians (resurrected LOCUSTS) and CRAFTY commercialism because "they see godliness as a means of financial gain." And, it is not emotionally or sexually healthy:

The MYSTERIES of Lynn Anderson are better felt than told. But this is just ancient paganism where the SEXUAL FEELING created by music and the symbols (Catholic Idols)

OF THE SHEPHERDING MOVEMENT

"For instance, the "men's movement" makes its appeal through the phallic religion of ancient paganism and modern phylosophy and everyone gets aroused and falls into line:

"It is Noll's thesis that Carl Jung created a select, elite group of spiritual initiates

that would lead the rest of society to redemption.

Jung was influenced by Eugen Diederichs who "called for just such a spiritual aristocracy to lead" post-war Germany. (p. 87)

Diederichs also, believed that "being truly religious means being irrational" and that his calling as a publisher was to "push the irrationalist character of religion into the foreground"

and assist in creating "a new mythos" or "mystique" (paradigm) for the spiritual reawakening of the Germanic peoples."

"Jung was also influenced by Count Hermann Keyserling and was a prominent lecturer at Keyserling's Schule der Weisheit (School of Wisdom) which taught yoga and other esoteric doctrines.

"Keyserling trained his metaphysically superior elite to lead the spiritual reawakening of the world.

His goal was "to develop sages from fragments of men" and to develop "the true leader of the future"...the metaphysically "chosen" agents of cultural change in the modern world. (Noll. p. 94The Jung Cult: Origins of a Charismatic Movement by Richard Noll (Princeton University Press, 1994)

Holy Entertainment Pagan Parallels: Lynn Anderson Holy entertainment and pagan parallels is defined by Lynn Anderson, Jubilee 99, NAVIGATING the Winds of Change or BLOWING the winds of change? Change Agentry from neo- paganism and the secular world WEARS OUT the people of God. Jb.15:2 asks: Would a wise man answer with empty notions or fill his belly with the hot east wind? While we do not question the motives of Lynn Anderson, our aim is to show that it is all too easy to pick up good-sounding methods from the commercial world which might be destructive if used to attempt to make spiritual changes.

Neo-Pagan Parallels to Lynn Andersons attempt to regenerate men through external means. Lynn Anderson Neo-Pagan views in the church: Change Agents Methods, Mind Control, Zoe Group and Witchcraft: Most New Religions, such as Jubilee 99, follow the same basic steps from LIBERTY and freedom to CONTROL and rigidity. The methods of the neo-pagans is not different. Lynn Anderson, in Navigating the Winds of Change illustrates some common and useful methods of changing the methods of a commercial institution.

Navigating the Winds of Change - Lynn Anderson - Keynoter of Jubilee 99 Lynn Anderson, Change Agents and JUBILEE 99 all sell the FALSE BELIEF that Worship is the Central Purpose of the Church. This justifies radical blows against the bodies of foot draggers to bring them to the brink and then jerk them back to force a new wineskin to hold the ferment of the agents of radical change. Attendance is the proof that their effort has worked.

Lynn Anderson Dancing on the Rim of Mystery

Here is the actual picture of men dancing on the rim. The Jewish clergy attempted to get Jesus involved in the dance and they truly hoped that John the Baptist was "soft."

The arrow points to the "Judas Bag" attached to the flute case. In the Classical world it is identified as "a bag for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments." It is derived from "speaking in tongues" and "Of the world." Psalm 41 prophesied that Judas would attempt to triumph over Jesus with pipes or wind instruments. Paul would say that they "were speaking mysteries" from their own spirit and therefore just speaking into the air.

Rubel Shelly at ACU: Number one Church Bashing, Number two Romans 14 7/7/03, Number Three Paul outlaws music. Number four: Wine Drinking focus and DIRTY PICTURES of the New Style Worship. THIS IS WHAT THEY DID AND ARE DOING TO JESUS!

See Psalm 41 prophesying that Judas would lead the TEAM to try to defeat Jesus and His Word by music.

See how the "Musical Levite Warriors" attacked Jesus with BODY WORSHIP or MUSIC.

Lynn Anderson: It's HARD to force people to SING upbeat songs during the Lord's Supper to remember His DEATH. Some people laught and sing at anything. 

"Jingling, banging, and rattling accompanied heathen cults, and the frenzying shawms of a dozen ecstatic cries intoxicated the masses. Amid this euphoric farewell feast of a dying civilization,

Lynn Anderson: Navigating the Winds of Change and Dionysus worship parallels.

While we are assured of the sincerity of the Zoe Group as an educational adjunct to churches teaching the new "officers of worship leadership" how to use music, dance and drama, we are confused that their name and methodology is identical to the ancient feminine claim that Sophia and Zoe were the dominant gender controlling and instructing the male gender with the same elements. The Hypostasis of the Archons speaking of the male god seemingly pouting that he had been overpowered by the feminine principle shows how the Babylon Whore and the Gnostic Sophia and Zoe forced the minor jehovah how to worship THEM.

"Now when these (events) had come to pass, he made himself a huge four-faced chariot of cherubim, and

infinitely many angels to act as ministers, and
also harps and lyres.

And Sophia took her daughter Zoe and had her sit upon his (Jehovah's) right
to
teach him (Jehovah) about the things that exist in the eighth (heaven);
and the
angel of wrath (logos, Jesus) she placed upon his left.

Since that day, his right (feminine) has been called 'life'; (ZOE)
and the left (male) has come to represent the unrighteousness of the realm of absolute power above.

THAT'S WHY THEY WANT TO TAKE "CHRIST" OUT OF THEIR IDENTIFICATION.

That means that the MASCULINE or left brained leadership of the Biblical and historical church are UNRIGHTEOUS. The solution is to restore FEMINE or EFFEMINATE leadership, forget DOCTRINE and concentrate on MUSIC and the ARTS to restore FEMINIST leadership.

However marvelous in the eyes of those WHO WOULD BE GOD, the church is not related training people to being SEX POLICE or LUST POLICE.

If you have offended a person then go to that person and if you have offended God the go to god. But for heaven's sake don't join some of the PREACHERS who have more fellowship with one another than with the church and go park in the woods or somwhere all day long and talk about your SEXUAL life. I knew two preachers who spend all day in the woods PRAYING.

ERASMUS WARNED YOU ABOUT THE CATHOLIC OR ANDERSONIAN OR LUCADOIAN CONFESSIONAL. DON'T DO IT. Many of the SHEPHERDING or DISCIPLING systems keep good books and however much your TRUST another, I can promise you that your secrets are NOT safe by taking them to a CATHOLIC - LIKE CONFESSOR.

And yet these kind of people, though they are as it were of another commonwealth, no man dares despise, especially those begging friars, because

they are privy to all men's secrets by means of confessions, as they call them. Which yet were no less than treason to discover, unless, being got drunk, they have a mind to be pleasant,

and then all comes out, that is to say by hints and conjectures but suppressing the names.

Once you fall for letting another human, especially one in self- appointed authority, you HAVE LOST the liberty for which Jesus Christ died. He will have his hands holding your tender parts and you will be under a cloud and DARE NOT ANGER or refuse to follow your MENTOR because Erasmus knew:

But if anyone should anger these wasps, they'll sufficiently revenge themselves in their public sermons and so point out their enemy by circumlocutions

that there's no one but understands whom 'tis they mean, unless he understand nothing at all;

nor will they give over their barking till you throw the dogs a bone. And now tell me, what juggler or mountebank you had rather behold than hear them rhetorically play the fool in their preachments, and yet most sweetly imitating what rhetoricians have written touching the art of good speaking?

The rhetoricians were sOPHISts or the SERPENTS of the Devils agents in the book of Revelation.

Erasmus continued:

"Good God! what several postures they have!

How they shift their voice,
sing out their words,
skip up and down,
and are ever and anon making such new faces

that they confound all things with noise!

And yet this knack of theirs is no less a mystery that runs in succession from one brother to another; which though it be not lawful for me to know, however I'll venture at it by conjectures.

The church exist as a SYNAGOGUE OF CHRIST. It's leaders are the elders who are THE Pastor-Teachers and the Deacons who must also be "filled with the Spirit" which Paul defined as "holding the mystery of the faith in a clear conscience."

The Pastor-Teachers need no Phd because Jesus fired the "doctors of the Law" because then and now they TOOK AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE. The elders would be able and commanded to TEACH THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT and refute the DOCTORS OF THE LAW who, along with the Musicians who both repulse and attract, make a place for themselves in the mainstream.

The reason for the National Shepherding movement is a WPA for the growing virtually Biblically illiterate Phds who can't or won't get a productive job. The Greek world identifies a group of Sectarians affirmed by Jesus: they were rhetoricians (Chris can learn you that), sOPHISts (the serpents in Revelation), singers, craftsmen and musicians. These are the SORCERERS in the book of Revelation. In the Greek world they were identified as PARASITES. Bums who lost their jobs in temples as priests assistants.

This is why the Greek world knew rhetoricians, sOPHISts, craftsmen, singers and musicians as PARASITES. THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO CHARGE YOU FOR ANYTHING GOD GAVE WITHOUT BEING LEGALISTS AND THIEVES.
