Lynn Anderson Psallo Justifies Instrumental Music


If you say that God commanded that musical instruments be imposed knowing that it would sow massive discord, God wants you to know that STRONG DELUSIONS results in LYING WONDERS which means religious services including rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or fleecing the lambs in the name of God.

The SOP with the same root as PSALLO was fed to Judas when Jesus planned to cause the Devil to enter into him to betray him.  Apollyon supplied the worship or service word to the Israelites after they fell into instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Abaddon or Apollyon was to be unleashed--just in time.  He is the king of the Locusts or Muses: the muses are dirty adulteresses or prostitutes.  Apollyon is the LEADER of the MUSES whom John calls SORCERERS.  They HAD deceived the whole world once so they were predestined because of trying to take God's place.  The will be or are Cast Alive into the Lake of Fire.  This was the Prophetic Type by Christ the Spirit in Isaiah 30 where the wind, string and percussion instruments are the SIGNS of God driving His enemies into "hell."


Outward Command:
SPEAK "that which is written for our Learning"
ODE and PSALLO IN the heart. Meaning Keep it Silent
BECAUSE: LEXIS or LOGOS is the OPPOSITE of ODE which means to enchant.

Psallo is a word often connected to Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon. He carried his bow and made the string "twang" to send forth a sinning arrow into the literal heart of enemies. He also carried the Lyre which he "plucked" intending to send forth a Love Arrow into his male of female frieds.

Abaddon or Apollyon has been unleased from the pit and is the leader of the LOCUSTS which we understand to be the MUSES as his musical worship team. The muses are known in the literature as dirty adulteresses who become SHEPHERDESSES at Apollo's Worship Center at Delphi and Corinth.

Psallo is USED primarily as:

psallō   pluck, pull, twitch,ps. etheiranpluck the hair: esp. of the bow-string, toxōn kheri psallousi neurastwangthem, E.Ba.784; “kenon krotonLyc.1453; ek keraos ps. belossend a shaft twanging from the bow,

When used of musicalinstruments Psallo means play or pluck II. mostly of the strings of musical instruments, play a stringed instrument with the fingers, and not with the plectron:

Let others Rhodes or Mytilene sing,

And search for wreaths the olive's rifled bower:
The praise of Juno sounds from many a tongue,
Telling of Argos' steeds, Mycenae's gold.
Mark 6.7 He called to himself the twelve, and began to send them out two by two; and he gave them authority over the unclean spirits.

Luke 8:2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary who was called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out;

The Spirit OF God is the BREATH of God and not a "people."

Psallo marks as Lawless those who used a "guitar pick", beat on a drum or blew a flute.

Sal. Cat. 25 In the number of those ladies was Sempronia, a woman who had committed many crimes with the spirit of a man. In birth and beauty, in her husband and her children, she was extremely fortunate; she was skilled in Greek and Roman literature; she could sing, play, and dance, with greater elegance than became a woman of virtue, and possessed many other accomplishments that tend to excite the passions. But nothing was ever less valued by her than honor or chastity.

The Graces as Muses were "blue-eyed blond musical prostitutes." They were Abaddon-Apollyon's Praise Team.

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.

Accordingly, nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

The CENI is defined by the Spirit OF Christ in the Wilderness and in the Prophets and prophecies made more certain by Jesus.  The Apostles were eye-- and ear--witnesses of the risen Lord Who returned as The Holy Spirit (breath, wind) in the upper room. They mark as false teachers anyone who does not teach that PATTER of foundation:

Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
        All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore,
        and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
        Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:20

Acts 15:21 For Moses
        of old time hath
        in every city them that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Paul commanded that we SPEAK that which is written for our learning (Romans 15).  He also commanded that we fill up with SPIRIT (Word in Col 3:16) and Teach and Admonish with the Biblical material which includes "teaching psalms." This is in contrast to the drinking songs of the crooked race of the symposia where the goal was to become "fluted down with wine."

Both singing in the pagan sense and beating on "instruments of delusion" was worship IN THE FLESH which Paul rejects in Philippians 3 because it permitted the "conscision or dogs" to destroy the rest Jesus died to give us from the laded burdens of the arousal songs by Jews or Gentiles.

In contrast, if you use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning you MUST keep the arousal singing and beating on instruments quiet and permit melody (or grace) to be IN the heart where grace means the divine influence of the GRACE which hath appeared teaching us to DENY the world's religions.

The idea suggested by proskunoimen and hieron, that the poet is a sort of theos or theios [god or goddess] anēr, is now elaborated with ironical politeness.

Pind. I. 8 Even when he was dead songs did not forsake him; beside his pyre and tomb the Muses of Helicon stood, and poured over him the many-voiced dirge.

Honor him, who won the garland of wild Dorian celery in the Isthmian valley; since [65] he too was once victorious over all that lived around him, battering them with his inescapable hands. He is not dishonored by the offspring of his father's distinguished brother. Therefore let another young man weave for Cleandros a garland of tender myrtle in honor of the pancratium, since the contest of Alcathous and the young men of Epidaurus welcomed him before in his success.

Don't get fooled by the NACC's collection of all of the "instrument passages."  God had abandoned Israel to the worship of the starry host (just read Acts 7).  God did not command the king, kingdom, temple, animal slaughter (like killing a man says God) or any kind of "musical worship." The Jacob-cursed tribe of Levi warned about in the interlude until Shiloh comes, jumped at the right to execute 3000 of the brethren who engaged in musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. For this affront, God gave them the book of the law and sentenced them to captivity and death back in Assyria and Babylon. God gave them kings in His anger to carry out this sentence.

Lynn Anderson The Beginning of Musical Idolatry 

Danny Corbitt and Matt Dabbs Psallo

Greek and Latin total evidence on the word PSALLO which is a pretty ugly word explaining why any making melody or meditating should be IN the heart or spirit which is a PLACE.  People are quite happy to deliberately sow discord based on a very simple lexicon. This paper separates all WAYS IN WHICH THE WORD IS USED together with Greek and Latin literature. There is no translation of Psallo other than to SING which does not point to making war or used by male and female prostitutes to seduce a young person.

John T. Willis 2. "Sing" is vocal; "make melody" is instrumental. Psalms 33:2-3; 144:9; 149:1, 3 make this crystal clear. Amos 5:23 further verifies this reality.  People forget that God turned Israel over to worship the starry host because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. The Levites were under the KING and the COMMANDERS of the army: they made war and not worship. We will examine these passages in context.

That doesn't stop the NACC 2013 Victorious to continue their 100 year plan to promote 'unity' by using a few subverted preachers to pretend that the the ANTI-instrumental people will ever be invited.

A Ralph John Psallo and Psalmos

Does  PSALLO Authorize Musical Instruments

Freed-Hardeman University - Bill Swetmon - Psallo and Josephus

Tom Burgess  Moralia and Musical Worship

The Spirit OF Christ says that Blaspheming the Spirit (Christ) is claiming that God commanded something He did not Command.

If you have to squeeze the word PSALLO which has NOT musical content into proof that you can be UNIQUE in not being hated by God for sowing discord you are forced to say that the total Holy Spirit ruler of the universe left Jesus, Paul and all of the Greek writers illiterate for not using TWO words such as Pluck (psallo) AND a named instrument OR using the compound words REQUIRED to define playing each named instrument and each form of melody.

First, since psallo never at any time or place in recorded history MEANT more than pluck or smite a string with your FINGERS and never with a PLECTRUM they would know that pluck had and has absolutely no "musical" content.  That is why there is no recorded Bible or literary example of being able to instruct someone to pluck a string with one word. If you tell someone PLUCK there is no telling what would happen to you.  The same is true in English and all languages.

Second, if you want to tell someone to PLUCK an INSTRUMENT there are compound words for all named instruments and STYLES of plucking.
Third, you blaspheme the Spirit of Christ by saying that:
  1. He was too ignorant not to use TWO words such as PSALLO Plus A Harp.
  2. He was too ignorant not to use one compound word which meant play a harp
  3. He just wanted to throw in stumble words for those who have not been washed with water INTO the Word or school of Christ or
  4. He intentionally wanted to sow massive discord since singing as an ACT was first imposed in the hear 373.
Even if "psallo" meant play a harp it could NEVER be used to justify a guitar pick, a flute or drums

Playing the part of those deliberately sowing discord and blaspheming, let's assume that the Spirit of Christ or Paul or anyone prior to 1878 was too illiterate to know about all of the compound words.  For instance.

Perhaps the Holy Spirit was not educated enough NOT to use psallo which is never translated to mean musical melody and was not aware that He could have used MELOS which means musical melody or a series of single notes.
HH 19 To Pan:1 Muse, tell me about Pan, the dear son of Hermes, with his goat's feet and two horns —a lover of merry noise. Through wooded glades he wanders with dancing nymphs who foot it on some sheer cliff's edge, [5] calling upon Pan, the shepherd-god, long-haired, unkempt.... Often he courses through the glistening high mountains, and often on the shouldered hills he speeds along slaying wild beasts, this keen-eyed god. Only at evening, [15] as he returns from the chase,
        he sounds his note,
        playing sweet and low on his pipes of reed:
        not even she could excel him in melody
        that bird who in flower-laden spring pouring forth her lament utters honey-voiced song amid the leaves....
Then all the immortals were glad in heart and Bacchic Dionysus in especial; and they called the boy Pan because he delighted all their hearts.

No one suggesting music as a role for the assembly missed the Church in the Wilderness and First Samuel Eight.

If you are a Disciple of Christ and teach what He commanded to teach you will understand that all of the "instrument" events under the curse of the monarchy, you can skip all of the lies to God and about God. Christ in Jeremiah 23 calls it blasphemy of the Spirit OF Christ who inspired only the Prophets and Apostles.

2Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season,
        out of season; reprove, rebuke,
        exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
        but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,
        having itching ears; [eager for combat, pleasure, to be wanton]


2Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,
        and shall be turned unto fables.

The Spirit OF Christ warned about the lying pen of the Scribes: Jesus quoted Ezekiel 33 to identify the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites named as slick speakers, singers and instrument players. They TOO had a covenant with death and had made an agreement with hell.

Rick Atchley: “If you’ve got people who still feel that their relationship with God depends on how we do things at church, then this is not going to fly — and you can’t get there because you did a series on grace.”  “An Afternoon with Rick Atchley and Chris Seidman, Part 3” (New Wineskins, September – December 2010

Then why radically change "how we do things at church" and say that God commanded instrumental praise and we should not be disobedient. The NACC led dogma is that instruments are COMMANDED, therefore, "you cannot DO church without instruments." Why else would one drive out the owners?

Christ identified the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the wilderness it was:

INCLUSIVE of Reading, Rest and Rehearsing the Word of God (only)
EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing including elevated styles of speaking.

John T. Willis 2. "Sing" is vocal; "make melody" is instrumental. Psalms 33:2-3; 144:9; 149:1, 3 make this crystal clear. Amos 5:23 further verifies this reality.  People forget that God turned Israel over to worship the starry host because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. The Levites were under the KING and the COMMANDERS of the army: they made war and not worship. We will examine these passages in context.

Church is Ekklesia or Synagogue: both for instruction only: both exclusive of any performing arts: you don't do music when God's Word is taught.  I submit that you cannot be a Christian if you do not understand the meaning of "teach them what I have commanded to be taught.

GRACE is Kharizo 2. gratify or indulge a humour or passion, 3. in erotic sense, grant favours to a man,
give up as a favour by dropping a law aimed at him,
Those who willingly infiltrate and impose musical instruments into a peaceable church justify the deliberate sowing of discord based on false teachings of all of the "instrument" passages also preach that GRACE will cover them.

Grace Centered Magazine:  3.06.11. This forum has a Church of Christ thread dedicated to abusing those who do not deliberately reject the clear teaching of the Word and recorded history. A common lie is that the Church Fathers had nothing bad to say about the use of instruments based on Scripture. We have refuted that to prove that NO ONE used instruments in the churches but refute the Jews who did because they had been abandoned to Canaanite Baalism or the worship of the starry host.

See Jay Guin Review for the list of New Wineskins papers.
Lynn Anderson has promoted Navigating the Winds of Change. He has promoted a system of SHEPHERDING patterned after Promise Keepers (the old Crossroads or IOCC system), and has actively promoted the use of instrumental music.  In his book he examples a scheme of singing which aroused some to go out of their "comfort zones" and clap.  The fact is that Jesus died to remove us from cult control by defining the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites meaning rhetoricians, singers and instrument players. The connection between music, sexual feelings and money is absolute. Revised 8.28.08.  Revised 9.5.08 at the end.
For the Spiritual:
  1. When Paul spoke of PSALMS as a Jew he spoke of Mizmors.
  2. The BOOK of psalms contains only 57 mizmors:
  3. only 50 of these are not restricted and not one of them contains the name of an instrument.
  4. False teachers mistake PSALMS for the BOOK of psalms and are therefore misleaders. # 150 is not a psalms and therefore it has not authority according to Paul and the practice of the Jews.
For the Wicked:
The Greek version translates the word neginah as psalms.  These can be uninspired, of the wicked, of drunkards, of mocking God and his word. Neginah is related to:
5060.  naga naw-gah´; a primitive root; properly, to touch, i.e. lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphem., to lie with a woman); by implication, to reach (figuratively, to arrive, acquire); violently, to strike (punish, defeat, destroy, smite, strike, touch.

Gath (h1660) gath; prob. from 5059 (in the sense of treading out grapes); 
Nagan (h5059) naw-gan'; a prim. root; prop. to thrum, i. e. beat a tune with the fingers; espec. to play on a stringed instrument; hence (gen.) to make music: - player on instruments, sing to the stringed instruments, melody, ministrel, play (-er, -ing..
And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot. Isa 23:15
..........Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered  Is.23:16
A study of the "proof texts" used by the NACC and therefore by Rick Atchley, ALL of the literature which connects plucking (psallo) to a harp also connect the plucker to an older male involved in seducing younger males.  You can click on Tom Burgess on Kurfees and Thayer to link to several papers on the O.E.Payne or Tom Burgess supplier of false information.

Part two: showing how the Bible OUTLAWS vocal and instrumental praise for the synagogue or church in the wilderness. The music-related words always point to Satan, warriors, sacrificial exorcists, prostitutes and Sodomites.  The "singing and harp playing prostitute" in the Garden of Eden becomes the mother of harlots in Revelation. She uses lusted after "fruits" as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players: John and the Greek literature calls all such musicians "sorcerers" because "melody conceives to deceives."

While the Jesus Ordained role of the elders as the Pastor-Teachers is to "teach that which has been taught" and even if you can twist cultic singing back into the Bible the demand would be to "sint that which is written" using one mind and one mouth. This is to educate, glorify or prise God, comfort with the Scriptures and keep the unity. When men are willing to pledge away their souls for "fame and fortune" it is natural to give up teaching facts and begin to lie about the most fundamental truths of Scripture under some beyond-control outside power: The Book of Enoch and 3 dozen versions I have collected declare that it is Satan who seduces people into replacing the Living Word with music.  Fallen women have always been the TARGET to which the PSALLO-based literature points.  History notes that only females and effeminate males can be touched by music.
Lynn Anderson Proof Text: Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary.  Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1963.  P.694.
Psalmos – “Its name in Latin and English Bibles . . . comes from the Greek, Psalmos, which means ‘twangings [of harp strings]’, and then, as a result, songs sung to the accompaniment of harps.  This latter name originated in the LXX (cf. its NT authenticity, Luke 20:42) and reflects the form of the book’s poetry.  The same is true of its alternate title, Psalterion, meaning ‘psaltery,’ and then, a collection of harp songs, from which comes the English term ‘Psalter.’”

Isnt there an intention to deceive by the "...."

Psalmos, ho, twitching or twanging with the fingers, psalmoi toxôn E.Ion173 (lyr.); toxêrei psalmôi [toxeusas] Id.HF1064 (lyr.). Psalmoi toxôn does not mean "sing and play a harp" WITH a bow.  Psalmoi just means pluck or twang a bow. Only in a secondary sense do we PLUCK a harp string which does not music make. Even then Psalmos is often used of evil songs.

Vine, W.E. Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words.  Old Tappan, New Jersey, 1966.  Psalm – “Psalmos--primarily denoted a striking or twitching with the fingers (on musical strings); then, a sacred song, sung to musical accompaniment, a psalm.  It is used (a) of the O.T. book of Psalms, Luke 20:42; 24:44; Acts 1:20; (b) of a particular psalm,

Acts 13:33; (c) of psalms in general, I Cor. 14:26; Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16.

BUT, there are not 150 psalms in Paul's authorization.  Paul didn't mention "halals" and "there was no praise service in the synagogue." Therefore, the "psalm 150" appeal repudiates music. 

Delitzsch, Psalms: The word "psalm", which is derived from the Greek word psalmos, is a translation of the Hebrew term mizmor, which is the title standing at the head of fifty-seven of the psalms. Thus it is evident that not every psalm has the superscription "psalm". But it is this word which has come to be the designation of the whole book.

Thus we see that although the one hundred and fifty units are called in the Scriptures the Book of Psalms, only fifty-seven of them bear the superscription psalm (mizmor) in the Hebrew Old Testament. The title which the Book of Psalms bears in Hebrew is Sepher Tehillim - the Book of Praises. It is this Hebrew word tehillim....  In Hellenistic Greek the corresponding word psalmoi' (from psa'llein = zimeer) is the more common; the Psalm collection is called bi'blos psalmoo'n (Luke 20:42; Acts 1:20) or psaltee'rion, the name of the instrument (psanteerîn in the Book of Daniel)
"The name of psaltery entered Christian literature in the 3rd century B.C. translation of the Old Testament called the Septuagint where, in the Psalms, nebel was translated psalterion. Thus, Nebuchadnezzar's idolatrous ensemble included the Aramic psantria. Notice, also, that the book of Psalms has also become known as the Psalter (or psalterium), from the hymns sung with this harp. Source

Nebel (h5035) neh'-bel; from 5034; a skin- bag for liquids (from collapsing when empty); hence a vase (as similar in shape when full); also a lyre (as having a body of like form): - bottle, pitcher, psaltery, vessel, viol

Sounding brass: 2757. kenophonia, ken-of-o-nee´-ah; from a presumed compound of 2756 and 5456; empty sounding, i.e. fruitless discussion: -- vain.

‘Oh, cease your empty songs,

We will not be defeated by your arts;
nor shall your songs prevail.-

Familiar spirit: 178. owb, obe; from the same as 1 (apparently through the idea of prattling a father’s name); properly, a mumble, i.e. a water skin (from its hollow sound); hence a necromancer (ventriloquist, as from a jar): bottle, familiar spirit.

Nabel (h5034) naw-bale'; to wilt; generally to fall away, fail, faint; figurative: to be foolish or morally wicked; to despise, disgrace: - disgrace, dishonour, lightly esteem, fade (away, - ing), fall (down, -ling, off), do foolishly, come to nought, surely, make vile, wither.
The bok of Psalms is Tehillim.  Only 57 of the Book of Psalms are mizmors which Paul--a Hebrew--would command as "psalms." Only 4 of those are on Neginoth "implied a stringed instrument." However, no instrument is included in the song.   Only 4 are on Neginoth "implied a stringed instrument."  Only one (108) has a harp and a psaltery and the writer wants to AWAKEN his his instruments. Psalm 92 uses instruments in the text but does not PLAY on the Sabbath.

Psalm 150 is not a mizmor but a halal.  All false music promoters want to get you led--and in bed--with Lucifer "the singing and harp-playing prostitute.

1984. halal, haw-lal´; a primitive root; to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence, to make a show, to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causatively, to celebrate; also to stultify:(make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool(-ish, -ly), glory, give (light), be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, (sing, be worthy of) praise, rage, renowned, shine. g1966 heylel or Lucifer from g1984.  Lucifer was personified by the king of Tyre as the "singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."  The "snake" was really a musical enchanter(ess) based on word definition and history.

Therefore when Paul said SPEAK using PSALMS he included only non-instrumental Psalms which were not sung but cantillated meaning SPEAK.


The word psallo never means a sacred song sung to musical accompaniment: Psallo just mens to play or pluck. You must define what is to be plucked. Plucking a harp string does not make music. Therefore, you have to define a tune.  


Simple lexicons cannot be used to "define" especially to authorize what Lynn Anderson knows will spread discord but move the church into the "zone" of his birth--the Christian church--and those with whom he "runs."  If someone speaks of "music that blasts" we do not use the word "music" to recommend to sober, decent society. The psallo words are based on something destructive and cannot ever carry a spiritual message. Just to let you read what the true Vine said when he EXCLUDES any instrument from the New Testament singing.
Jesus said that doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge:
that is their job; that is what the do.  Notice the real Vine
Melody (Verb)
Psallo primarily "to twitch, twang,"  
vine Psallo means none of the following but is used in connection with many plucking or smiting.
  1. THEN "to play a stringed instrument with the fingers," [instrument is always added and named. The plectrum is excluded to exclude guitars, organs or flutes.]
  2. and hence, in the Sept.,
        a. "to sing with a harp,"
    [instrument is always named if intended.]
    b.  sing psalms [Therefore the harp does not inhere.]
  3. Denotes, in the NT, "to sing a hymn, sing praise;" in Eph5:19, "making melody" (for the preceding word ado,  
  4. Elsewhere it is rendered "sing," Rom 15:9; 1 Cor 14:15; in James 5:13, RV, "let him sing praise" (AV, "let him sing psalms").

1.  Sing, Singing

Vine Ado is used always of "praise to God," [performing for an audience is excluded]
        (a) intransitively, Eph 5:19; Col 3:16;
        (b) transitively, Rev 5:9; Rev 14:3; Rev 15:3.  

Hymn (Noun and Verb)
humneo akin to humnos, is used
     (a) transitively, Matt 26:30; Mark 14:26, where the "hymn" was that part of the Hallel consisting of Psalms 113-118;
        (b) intransitively, where the verb itself is rendered "to sing praises" or "praise,"
Acts 16:25; Heb 2:12.
        (c) The Psalms are called, in general, "hymns," by Philo; Josephus calls them "songs and hymns."
Hallel The Hallel through the generations, on specific occasions: Pesachim 117a
Hallel requires a full stomach and a satisfied spirit: Taanis 25b-26a
The reading is beloved to the people, and so they listen closely:  Megillah 21b
The Hallel as an Institution of the Prophets, to use to pray for salvation from danger: Pesachim 117a
Reciting Hallel for a miracle which occurred outside of Israel: Megillah 14a
Saying the Hallel daily is blasphemous:  Shabbos 118b

Therefore, as we exclude self -composed Scripture, self-composed song are excluded and theiri inclusion caused discord.
Donald D. Markus, Performing the Book

11 Hence, I argue first that the representation of the epic recital is highly dependent upon the representation of other public performances and, second, that epic's social image is attacked and reclaimed via its public performance.

In fact, behind the criticisms of the epic recital often lie issues about the performance of gender and social status.

In that regard, epic's position is parallel to that of rhetoric. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetorica (1404a), critics of rhetorical performance have ascribed to lively delivery the same effect as that of acting. There is a persistent association between theatrics, bad rhetoric and effeminacy.

12 That this pattern of criticism was transferred onto the epic recital is ironic because the setting which brought epic into existence in Greece was public performance. In the hands of the Roman satirists and critics, however, epic's performance became subject to the same kind of scrutiny to which the public performance of rhetoric in first-century Rome was subjected.

Rhetoric was forever at pains to disentangle itself from unwanted associations with female deception and histrionic art,

because it was viewed as the art of socially weak women and slaves,
rhetoricians of all ages have assiduously fought against any trace of bodily and vocal practice associated with these groups.

A recital / reading is debased when it takes on the features of a performance.

Horace uses cantare in a derogatory sense for a mimetic, grotesque, distorted and inappropriate style of performance when he satirizes a character's recitals of Calvus and Catullus: quos neque pulcher Hermogenes umquam legit neque simius iste nil praeter Calvum et doctus cantare Catullum. (Sat. 1.10.17--19)

1 Chr 25:1  David, together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun for the ministry of prophesying, accompanied by harps, lyres and cymbals. Here is the list of the men who performed this service:

Payne insists that the Hebrew of 1 Chronicles 25:1 unambiguously identifies these leaders as militarycommanders, an interpretation favoured by several Bible translations. (Payne, p 423-4; NASB, NIV, NKJV, NRSV, Jerusalem Bible) If military commanders had a particular interest in the appointment of musicians, it suggests a strong link between music and warfare
Psallo never means "twitch a harp": if you twitch a harp then a harp is twitched.  If you twitch or yank out a hair then music you do not make.  If you pluck out pubic hair you do other. The ROOT of this word speaks of DESTRUCTION and POLLUTION. Why would the Spirit of Christ use a word ROOTED in evil to praise him especially since "praise singing" is historically a form of verbal or virtual-sexaul abuse of the gods to force fertility?  Fool the ROOTS and don't get taken captive by the EVIL THREAD:


5568psalmos, psal-mos´;

Paul commanded the HEART]
        C. collectively, the book of the Psalms: psalm. Compare 5603
There is no INSTRUMENT included: you MAY strike a harp.
All "singing" words speak of enchantment or sorcery: you sing INTENTIONALLY to do mind altering so you can pick their pockets.  John says preaching, singing and playing instruments is SORCERY.

All instances where an instrument is intended it is NAMED: to say pluck has as its primary meaning to PLUCK hairs or a bowstring.


Psalmos is not derived from any spiritually uplifting concept but of making war and prostitution. The praise word Chalal means to "play the flute, steal your inheritance, pollute and prostitute."

5567.  psallo, psal´-lo; probably strengthened from yaw psao (to rub or touch the surface;

John 13:26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop,
       when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop,
        he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
John 13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into him.

triumphal hymn of Moses

The musical idolatry at Mount Sinai has the same meaning and the same root

Ex. 32:6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play

2Sam. 6:5 And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.

"The triumphal hymn of Moses had unquestionably a religious character about it; but the employment of music in religious services, though idolatrous, is more distinctly marked in the festivities which attended the erection of the golden calf." (Smith's Bible Dictionary, Music, p. 589).

"They sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play. They practiced rites in which they made themselves naked, perhaps similar to those which were carried out by naked Babylonian priests." (Woodward, p. 158).

"Not to be overlooked here is the accompaniment of music and dancing which, with the character of the ensuing phenomena, makes the diagnosis (of idolatry) certain." (Schaff-Herzog, Ecstasy, p. 71).

Why would any Bible reader not see that ALL of the "music" terms and names of instruments are the MARK of someone who intends to hurt you really bad?  Why would the Spirit COMPROMISE all music concepts if He suffered from the LUST OF THE EARS?
No one in the Bible or early church history every DID that: Psallo is reserved as a MARK like SOP. It only surfaced in 1878 as a way to save the clergy and church as institute.

Ovid Amours 3:12
And there is hardly now a rake in Rome
But knows her rates, and thanks my babbling muse:
Her house is now as common as the stews;
For this I'm to the muse oblig'd, and more
For all the mischiefs envy has in store.
This comes of gallantry, while some employ
Their talents on the fate of Thebes and Troy,
While others Caesar's godlike acts rehearse,
Corinna is the subject of my verse.

And though Corinna in my songs is fair,
Let none conclude she's like her picture there.
The fable she with hasty faith receiv'd,
And what, so very well she lik'd, believ'd.
But since so ill she does the poet use,
'Tis time her vanity to disabuse.

        therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint,
        and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

Psalms are poems and tend to be poetic: you have to understand forms of figurative language or be prepared to hav a "smashing in the heads of some infants" ceremony next week.

The tabulation of musical passages "contains a rather disproportionate number of metaphorical sentences, where music or its instruments are not to be understood literally but are used as similies or rhetorical figures. The most celebrated of these poetical passages is Paul's glorification of love in I Cor. 13." (Interpreter's Dict of the Bible, Music, p. 466).

All of those defending "music" in the classroom of Christ use the "psallo" words but FAIL to grasp that the word most often speaks of making war or trying to seduce the Godly into sexual perversion.

Psalmos also appears in the LXX as equivalent to the Hebrew word neginah. This Hebrew term is used to describe a wide variety of songs. Neginah is translated by psalmos in Lam 3:14 (song), in Lam 5:14 (music) and in Ps 69:12 (song). It is striking to observe that in the LXX translation of Lam 3:14 and Ps 69:12, psalmos, or its verbal form, is used for songs uninspired but are in fact the product of the wicked, even drunkards, who mocked God and His word. The Hebrew term neginah is used elsewhere in the Hebrew Scriptures of: the songs of the wicked, Job 30:9 (song); the inspired praise of God, Psalm 61 title (Neginah-a song performed on a stringed instrument); and the uninspired praise of the Lord composed by King Hezekiah, Is 38:20 (my song).
Psa. 69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;
        and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
Psa. 69:10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
Psa. 69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
Psa. 69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.

Psa 69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: 
        and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

Psa 69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

7219. rosh, roshe; or rowsh (Deut. 32:32), roshe; apparently the same as 7218; a poisonous plant, probably the poppy (from its conspicuous head); generally poison (even of serpents):--gall, hemlock, poison, venom.

Psalmoi toxôn does not mean "sing and play a harp" WITH a bow.  Psalmoi just means pluck or twang a bow.

"And Sophia and Zoe caught him up and
gave him [jehovah] charge of the seventh heaven, below the veil between above and below. And he is called 'God of the forces, Sabaoth', since he is up above the forces of chaos, for Sophia established him. Jehovah made himself a huge four-faced chariot of cherubim, and infinitely many angels to act as ministers, and also harps and lyres.

The meaning of 'Eve' is disputed. Hawwah is explained in Genesis III. 20 as 'mother of all living'; but this may well be a Hebraicized form of the divine name Heba, hebat, Khebat or Khiba. The goddess, wife of the Hittite Storm-god, is shown riding a lion in a rock-sculpture at Hattrusas--which equates her with Anath--and appears as a form of ishtar in Hurrian texts.

Now I will disclose to you both the subject and the name of the play which we are just now about to act, and for the sake of which you are now seated in this mirthful place , "Alazon" is the name (86)

This city is Ephesus; then, the Captain, my master, who has gone off hence to the Forum, a bragging, impudent, stinking fellow, brimful of lying and lasciviousness, says that all the women are following him of their own accord. Wherever he goes, he is the laughing stock of all; and so, the Courtesans here--since they make wry mouths at him, you may see the greater part of them with lips all awry Alazon is the name:
Jesus likened the MEN to CHILDREN in the marketplace piping trying to get others to sing (lament) and dance.
Alazôn, "the boaster," he says, was the Greek name of the play. It is not known who was the Greek author from whom Plautus took this play, which is one of his best.
How better utterly condemn musical instruments associated with pagan women?

FOURTH: 3. later, [This ONLY defines how the word is used: not a definition]
a. song sung to the harp, [Psalmus does not INCLUDE the harp unless NAMED]
A song sung TO a harp means that you twang the string then seek to imitae that sound: this identifies mose uses of an instrument which was imitated but never to TEACH. Here is where the musical imposers have to go for evidence for point 
Is. 23:15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.

Here is how a harlot sings:
Is. 23:16 Take an [1] harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet [2] melody, [3] sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.
b. psalm, LXX 2 Ki.23.1, XXIII. Now these are the last words of David. David the son of Jesse says, The man who was raised on high says, The anointed of the God of Jacob, 
c. The sweet psalmist of Israel: [2] The Spirit of Yahweh spoke by me, His word was on my tongue
al., Ep.Eph.5.19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Speak is the opposite of poetry or music which intends to deceive.
d. biblos psalmôn
Ev.Luc.20.42 . And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

That is why Paul commanded "plucking your heart strings" which was a common statement.

Tom Burgess etal appeal to Plutarch to prove that PSALLO meant to "Pluck the harp."  However, psallo never means more that PLUCK and in this case Alexander the Great was plucking the harp to seduce a young man--he DID die a mysterious death.

Plutarch, Lives (ed. Bernadotte Perrin) [4] Such objects are to be found in virtuous deeds; these implant in those who search them out a great and zealous eagerness which leads to imitation.

In other cases, admiration of the deed is not immediately accompanied by an impulse to do it. Nay, many times, on the contrary, while we delight in the work, we despise the workman, as, for instance, in the case of perfumes and dyes; we take a delight in them, but dyers and perfumers we regard as
illiberal and vulgar folk. [5]

Therefore it was a fine saying of Antisthenes, 

        when he heard that Ismenias was an excellent piper:
        "But he's a worthless man," said he, "otherwise he wouldn't be so good a piper."
And so Philip once said to his son, who, as the
wine went round,
        plucked the strings
charmingly and skilfully,
        "Art not
ashamed to pluck the strings so well?"
It is enough, surely, if a king have leisure to hear others pluck the strings, and he pays great deference to the
Muses if he be but a spectator of such contests.
Again, notice the many ways the word is USED but never defined.

1) to pluck off, pull out
2) to cause to vibrate by touching, to twang
a) to touch or strike the chord, to twang the strings of a musical instrument so that they gently vibrate
b) to play on a stringed instrument, to play, the harp, etc.
c) to sing to the music of the harp
d) in the NT to sing a hymn, to celebrate the praises of God in song


Euripides Bacchae.

"Already, look you! the presumption of these Bacchantes is upon us, swift as fire, a sad disgrace in the eyes of all Hellas. No time for hesitation now! away to the Electra gate! order a muster of all my men-at-arms, of those that mount fleet steeds, of all who brandish light bucklers, of archers too that make the bowstring twang; for I will march against the Bacchanals. By Heaven this passes all, if we are to be thus treated by women."

[912] DIONYSUS [God of the New Wineskinners]

Ho! Pentheus, thou that art so eager to see what is forbidden, and to show thy zeal in an unworthy cause, come forth before the palace, let me see thee clad as a woman in frenzied Bacchante's dress, to spy upon thy own mother and her company.

Enter PENTHEUS. Yes, thou resemblest closely a daughter of Cadmus.

PENTHEUS (already frenzied) Of a truth I seem to see two suns, and two towns of Thebes, our seven-gated city; and thou, methinks, art a bull going before to guide me, and on thy head a pair of horns have grown. Wert thou really once a brute beast? Thon hast at any rate the appearance of a bull.

[977] CHORUS
 [Look ot the Hills]
To the hills! to the hills!
fleet hounds of madness, where the daughters of Cadmus hold their revels,
goad them into wild fury
against the man disguised in woman's dress
, a frenzied spy upon the Maenads.
And so the MOTHER OF THE GODS or the Mother of Harlots uses then abuses speakers, singers and instrument players.

ONCE YOU GRASP THAT PSALLO IS FIRST DEFINED AS REAL OR "SACRED VIOLENCE" THERE IS NO COMFORT.  Before moving beyond redemption it is important not to lie about how the word is used in violent context.  Click for context below.

Lynn Anderson is quoted by Rubel Shelly
to prove that he has new spectacles through which he gets a new image or vision of the church for their culture.

Huxley notes that After taking the pill:

"The change which actually took place in that world was in no sense revolutionary. Half an hour after swallowing the drug I became aware of a slow dance of golden lights. A little later there were sumptuous red surfaces swelling and expanding from bright nodes of energy that vibrated with a continuously changing, patterned life. At another time the closing of my eyes revealed a complex of gray structures, within which pale bluish spheres kept emerging into intense solidity and, having emerged, would slide noiselessly upwards, out of sight. But at no time were there faces or forms of men or animals. I saw no landscapes, no enormous spaces, no magical growth and metamorphosis of buildings, nothing remotely like a drama or a parable. The other world to which mescalin admitted me was not the world of visions; it existed out there, in what I could see with my eyes open. The great change was in the realm of objective fact. What had happened to my subjective universe was relatively unimportant.

Lynn Anderson: 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

However, Altered Consciousness:

A key component of the Gnostic experience is the alteration of consciousness. Because the Gnostic is subjectively driven,

the perception of God becomes something that hinges on feelings rather than faith.
In order to improve upon the feelings, the use of additional mechanisms to create moods,
........... especially the use of music, is frequently brought in. (van der Merwe, p. 90-91, Strange Fire)

Lynn Anderson: Sounds right to me, Mr. Huxley! Something like this can happen to faith as well. The rational, informational, and linear-sequential worlds of productivity tend to dominate in our lives these days.

Consequently, the rest of our worlds suffer neglect, and we are losing touch with much of what it means to believe.

The rest of the story told by Huxley includes just this:

"Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art (preaching) is in no sense cathartic; it is merely a form of emotional masturbation. It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession.

Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process. From Source

Many pagan and and voodoo-derived churchy singing has the purpose driven to make the Spirit come. This was mothered by the Wimbers of the Vineyard and imitated by the New Wineskins.

Lynn Anderson is still honored for his Life's work and used at Lipscomb University. In 2008 the focus was on professional musicians and the training of Musical Worship Ministers--the ultimate oxymoron and repudiation of direct commands, approved examples and necessary inferences to anyone who understands that ekklisia means synagogue which means "a school of the Bible--only."  Vocal and instrumental rejoicing was outlawed for the church in the wilderness as destructive to the Holy Convocation and an insult to God and His words.

Lynn Anderson was used for Jubilee 99 to justify "worship" as the role of the church and to "facilite" the public laying on of hands.

You will have to use your head to follow this. 

"All of these forms have relevance to Achilles, who was placed upon a fire to remove his mortal impurities, who was a renowned singer and harpist, and who was skilled with a bow. (Ironically, he was killed by a bolt directed by Apollo from the bow of Alexander.) The twanging of the bowstring suggests the sound of the harp string and the singing of the clear, high pitched voice of the youth.

I have added Part Two which will do the RECYCLE from the beginning-time Satanic attack in the garden of Eden to the end-time attack John called the Mother of Harlots using "lusted after fruits" as performance preachers, singers and instrument players. John calls the Sorcerers as does most recorded history of evil people using music to "silence the voice of the victim."  Being "sacred violence" is proven by all of the PSALLO related words which we have just illusted: nevertheless it it VIOLENCE of men who have sold out to Satan and know it.


Only God knows why such evil has broken out like "lying wonders" suddenly and spreading to most Bible-based religions.

Girard: 5.4.2 Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.

45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music Myth means to close ourselves to the victim and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective; mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out the voice of the victim.

Xenophon, Symposium VII. Then some among the rest of the banqueters kept urging Philip to go on with his comparisons, while others opposed. As the clamour rose to some height, Socrates once more interposed, saying: “Since we all want to talk, would this not be a fine time to join in singing?” And with the words he began a song. [2] When they had finished, a potter's wheel was brought in for the dancing girl on which she intended performing some feats of jugglery.  

This prompted Socrates to observe to the Syracusan: “Sir, it is quite probable that, to use your words, I am indeed a ‘thinker’; at any rate, I am now considering how it might be possible for this lad of yours and this maid to exert as little effort as may be, and at the same time give us the greatest possible amount of pleasure in watching them,—this being your purpose, also, I am sure.

Let them both patronize the good, and give them friendly advice, and regulate the passionate, and love to appease thou who swell [with rage]: The flute (not as now, begirt with brass and emulous of the trumpet, but) slender and of simple form, with few stops, was of service to accompany and assist the chorus, and with its tone was sufficient to fill the rows that were not as yet too crowded, where an audience, easily numbered, as being small and sober, chaste and modest, met together.

Thus the musician added new movements and a luxuriance to the ancient art, and strutting backwardforward, drew a length of train over the stage; thus likewise new notes were added to the severity of the lyre, and precipitate eloquence produced an unusual language [in the theater]: and the sentiments [of the chorus, then] expert in teaching useful things and prescient of futurity, differ hardly from the oracular Delphi.
