Lectio  violates the direct command to read that which is written for our learning by reading without understanding as a prelude or trance with the object to DIVINA. The word divina does not mean reading the revealed word of the Divine Being. That is proven by the intention to receive direct revelation.  The term cannot be used without affirmation in one way or another the Fuller John Wimber [LU} view is:
 'Don't let the Bible get in the way of the blessing.'
 'Some of you Bible-lovers need to put-it down and let God work on you.'

 ‘The Bible has let us down. It has not delivered the numbers we need.'
 'You must not let your mind hinder the receiving of the blessing.'
This is ANTI-Christian and ANTI-Jesus

The ANTI-Patternists or ANTI-sectarians fail to grasp or intentionally DISOBEY:

1. Christ prophesied and Jesus put into place "The SECT that is called the WAY."
2. The Way is the ROAD which is a very narrow, exclusive PATTERN

John 8:23 And he SAID unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above:
        ye are OF this world; I am NOT OF this world.
[ecumenical self-willed]
John 8:24
I SAID therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
        for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

John 8:25
Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus SAITH unto them,
         Even the same that I SAID unto you from the beginning. [Not Genesis 1:1]

Jesus obeyed the CENI: you don't need to!

John 8:26 I have many things to SAY and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true;
        and I SPEAK to the world those things which I have HEARD of him.

John 8:28 Then SAID Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man,
........... then shall ye know that I am he,
........... And that I do nothing of myself;
........... but as my Father hath taught me,
........... I SPEAK these things.

Looking for God's inferences

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me:
........... the Father hath not left me alone;
........... for I do alway those things that please him.

You don't have to!

John 8:30 As he SPAKE these words, many believed on him.

John 8:31 Then SAID Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,
........... If ye continue in MY WORD, [Logos: regulative principle: CENI]
             then are ye
my disciples indeed;

You don't have to!

John 8:32 And ye shall know THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free.

John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
2Cor. 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

John 8: 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever:
         but the
Son abideth ever.
John 8: 36
If the Son therefore shall make you free,
        ye shall be free indeed.

The Kenites or Cainites gained control of the Priesthood almost from the beginning: God had turned them over to worship the STARRY HOST because of musical idolatry were NOT worthy of hearing Jesus. Therefore, He spoke to them in parables. THESE were predestinated to be lost based on their own choices.

When people question the Words of Christ they question God and HE sends strong delusions so that they believe a lie and ae damned. When you fall you cannot get up and THAT was the message about the FALL produced by music.

John 8:37 I know that ye are Abrahams seed; but ye seek to kill me,
........... because my WORD (logos) hath no place in you.

John 8: 38 I SPEAK that which I have seen with my Father:
........... and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. [the Devil]

John 8: 39 They answered and SAID unto him,
........... Abraham is our father. Jesus SAID unto them,
........... If ye were Abrahams children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

THE ABSOLUTE AND ONLY PATTERN- Speak and Read are Logos words: sing and play are Sophia words recognized as effeminate according to Christ in Isaiah 3.

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

The PROGRESSIVES are under the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17). She uses "lusted after fruits" which are the same as Amos 8.  There is not history which does not prove that men who sing and play and wish to expose themselves as the "center' are Drunk, Perverted or Just having fun.

The speakers, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 are called SORCERERS which is the same word defining the Babylon Mother Sorcerers.  This defines the PERFORMERS as Scape Goats or Capella which are being SACRIFICED as the Lead Agents into the Lake of Fire. Christ defined the Prototype Prophecy in Isaiah 30.

The FIRST ADVENT Attack was by Judas who was prophesied to perform the same "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" OUTLAWED for The Church of Christ in the Wilderness.  See Psalm 41 and the Dead Sea agreement

No one was every so ignorant even when writing on Clay Tablets that they did not  know that people using instrumental noises KNTENDED to Hurt you or Steal your property.

The Greek Scholars agreed with Paul about corrupting the Word that anyone selling their own opinions, talents or charisma were called PROSTITUES.  Paul called it selling learning at retail.

Cyrus was told how to NEUTER captives to keep them under control. Power grabbing preachers who want to be MASTERS (Authoratative Teachers) have KEEPING THEM UNDER CONTROL is absolutely necessary less they grasp that Jesus died to pry the burden laders off our backs: the Laded Burdens are types of repeating songs which perform the act of WITCHCRAFT with a boiling pot of frog yes.

Heredotus 1 Grant, then, forgiveness to the Lydians, and to make sure of their never rebelling against thee, or alarming thee more,
send and forbid them to keep any weapons of war,
         command them to wear tunics under their cloaks,
         and to put buskins upon their legs,
         and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein),
          and singing (psallein),
         and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). [Corrupting the Word]
So wilt thou soon see them become WOMEN instead of men,
and there will be no more fear of their revolting from thee."

Any kind of performing music when Jesus told us to SPEAK that which is written INTENDS to bring glory and more "Authority" to THE Alpah Male.

Croesus thought the Lydians would even so be better off than if they were sold for slaves, and therefore gave the above advice to Cyrus, knowing that, unless he brought forward some notable suggestion, he would not be able to persuade him to alter his mind. He was likewise afraid lest,after escaping the danger which now pressed, the Lydians at some future time might revolt from the Persians and so bring themselves to ruin.

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time
        hath in every city
        them that PREACH him, being READ in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Acts 23:34 And when the governor had
READ the letter,
        he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that he was of Cilicia;
2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
        for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the
READING of the old testament;
        which vail is done away in Christ.
2Cor. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Cor. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall TURN to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
2Cor. 3:17 Now the Lord IS THAT SPIRIT and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Cor. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
        are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Peter said that the Word left as the PARTS of the eye--and ear--witnesses was not subject to private interpretation of further expounding which would DESPISE the Spirit OF Christ.  That is the various PARTS delivered as a whole.

John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not:
        for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my WORDS,
        hath one that judgeth him: the WORD that I have spoken,
        the same shall judge him in the last day.
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself;
        but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment,
        what I should say, and what I should speak.
John 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
        whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

Is. 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;

Therefore, true to scholarly pretensions and deceptions LECTIO is the OPPOSITE of muttering and murmuring claiming at a spirit people is goint to let you DISOBEY the command to READ the word.  Othewise, you destroy the DNA God put into it.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Col.3:15 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph 5:17

singing and making melody IN your heart to the Lord; Eph 5:19

is the same as with melody in our hearts: neither are "music" but the nature of speech.

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Phil 4:9 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Col. 3:17 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Eph 5:20

It must be assumed that those who get the TRUE message directly from God by  having a Bible Text open up the pathway to thee "center" intend that what comes to their imagination is worthy of being taught in PLACE of the Word of God from which they derive their occupation.  Therefore, those who honor the prophets by the Spirit OF Christ should take notice of the Spirit's warning about those who claim to be in contact with a "god."

This abandons the only standard for marking false teachers (2 Peter 2). The Spirit OF Christ spoke only through the prophets and apostles: the church is built or educated upon those teachings and fulfillment.  If a "scholar" needs more than that then he-she is not a Disciple of Christ or Christian. Do not fear them.
2Kings 17:17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire,
        and used divination and enchantments,
        and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD,
        to provoke him to anger.

Jer 14:11 Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

Jer 14:12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation,
        I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.
Jer 14:13 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them,
        Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine;
        but I will give you assured peace in this place.

If people convince you that they have a message based on Lectio Divina or Centering Prayer they are using psychological violence (that Jesuit thing) to make you trust them instead of the Word. Jesus as Holy Spirit APPEARED and SPOKE to Paul to qualify him to be an apostle and be guided into all truth. 
Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me,
        The prophets prophesy lies in my name:
        I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them:

Jer 14:22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain?

Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord,

Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord,

Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord,

Acts 16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
Acts 16:19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
Acts 16:20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,

The Worship of the Dead, Garnier: THE GREAT GODDESS 6i Heaven," ' Ishtar was called " The Mistress of Heaven," while Beltis, under the name of " Melkat Ashemin," was known to the Babylonians and Jews as "The Queen of Heaven." ^ This was also the title of the Egyptian " Isis," who in later Egyptian mythology was identified with the moon, [divina, thessalian hag]  as was Osiris with the sun. Isis is, in fact, the Greek form of Isha, " the woman." 3 Isis also is the same as " Geres" 4 and the rites of Isis and Ceres were similar,5 as were those of " Rhea," or " Cybele," and " Astarte." ^ Thus we have " Rhea," " Cybele," " Diana," " Astarte," or " Ashtoreth," "Ishtar," "Venus," or " Aphrodite," "Isis" and " Ceres," all more or less identified with Semiramis and the Babylonian goddess, and with each other, and the relationship of Rhea to Saturn, of Venus to Adonis, Isis to Osiris, etc., still further confirms this identity

We have seen that BaalTammuz was also called " Adon," "The Lord," who was the Greek Adonis, and Adon with the points is pronounced in Hebrew " Athon."
So also in modern Theosophy and Spiritualism it is taught that " God is dual, He and She, Father and Mother. Hindu teachers obtained a golden glimpse of this impersonal truth."  In like manner it is said, "Man being made in the image of God is male and female," and as Christ is spoken of by the Apostle Paul as the second Adam, so it is taught by Theosophy that " there is yet to be expected a second Eve who is to be the Queen of Heaven • Ante, p. 168
-Plat. Gorg. 513a  and so therefore now, whether it is your duty to make yourself as like as possible to the Athenian people, if you intend to win its affection and have great influence in the city: see if this is to your advantage and mine, so that we may not suffer, my distinguished friend, the fate that they say befalls the creatures who would draw down the moon—the HAGS of Thessaly;  that our choice of this power in the city may not cost us all that we hold most dear. But if you suppose that anyone in the world can transmit to you such an art as will cause you  [513b] to have great power in this state without conforming to its government either for better or for worse, in my opinion you are ill-advised,

1 Socrates alludes to the popular theory that the practice of witchcraft is a serious danger or utter destruction to the practicer.
as Thettalidas: the Thessalian women were very skilful in sorcery and poisoning. They stood in close relation to the night-goddess Hecate; hence people ascribed to them the power to draw the moon from the heavens. Strepsiades says in Ar. Nub. 749 gunaika pharmakid' ei priamenos Thettalēn | katheloimi nuktōr tēn selēnēn kthe. Cf. Hor. Epod. 5. 45 quae sidera excantata voce Thessala | lunamque caelo deripit. For this, however, the goddess exacted punishment, for Suidas says hai tēn selēnēn kathairousai Thettalides legontai tōn ophthalmōn kai tōn paidōn (v. l. podōn) steriskesthai. eirētai epi tōn heautois ta kaka epispōmenōn paroimia. Cf. also Plin. N. H. XXX. I. 2 (6). Aristophanes' designation of them under the name pharmakis, while it implies that their art consisted in the manipulation of drugs, does not limit us to that view, because Herodotus, vii. 114, uses the verb pharmakeuein in speaking of the sacrifice of white horses by the Magi to the river Strymon.

This lying divination comes out of the MONKS and Jesuits always devited to defeating anything not Catholic.

To become a Jesuit:
A "director" guided the candidate who went through the "Exercises." All the senses were employed in these meditations, until finally the mind of the candidate was broken like that of a horse to obey his master in all things. An observer of the Jesuits wrote: "Not only visions were pre-arranged, but also sights, inhalings; breathing was noted down; the pauses and intervals of silence were written down like a music sheet… which meant that the man, being inspired or not, became a machine who had to sigh, sob, groan, cry, shout or catch his breath at the exact moment and in the order which experience showed to be the most profitable. Using this method, Layola only needed 30 days to break someone's will and reasoning.

The “Spiritual Exercises” work on the imagination of the candidate, helped by a “director”. Various biblical scenes are “relived” in front of him, beautiful ones alternating with frightening ones. His sighs, inhalings, breathing, and periods of silence are all noted down. After a number of weeks of this, he is ready for indoctrination. Obedience is absolutely vital to the Jesuit Order. Every Jesuit must be in total obedience to his superior, obeying him without question. In the Constitutions of the Order, it is repeated some 500 times that the Jesuit must see in the General, not a fallible man, but Christ himself! This was said by a professor of Roman Catholic theology. In the words of Ignatius: “We must see black as white, if the Church says so.”
Ignatius of Loyola the spiritual terrorist is NOT Ignatius the Church Father whose doctrine refutes the Ignatius of terrorism
...with the task of making disciples of women called as witnesses by the Inquisition under the direction of magistrate Alonso Mejias. Although the alumbrados [Illuminated; Illuminati; Enlightened Ones] of Spain were linked in their zeal and spirituality to the Franciscan reforms of which Cardinal de Cisneros was a promoter," the administrators of the Inquisition had mounting suspicions. These female disciples, Doña Leo, Doña Maria, and Doña Beatriz were so hysterically zealous that "one fell senseless, another sometimes rolled about on the ground, another had been seen in the grip of convulsions or shuddering and sweating in anguish." This suspicious activity had taken place while Ignatius and his companions were regularly preaching in public. Because of his "street-corner perorations" being identified "with the activities of the alumbrados," Ignatius was naturally singled out for inspection as one of these visionaries; however he was later released.

The Alumbrados: The Jesuit Order or "Society of Jesus" is a Covert Military Organization founded by Ignatius of Loyola (a member of the Spanish Gnostic Sect, Los Alumbrados) in 1534. The Alumbrados (Spanish word for The Illuminated Ones) where a Secret Society of Gnostic (Religion that combines Eastern Mysticism with Monotheist Religions and Mystery Religions ) origins. The Alumbrados were a sect of people of Noble blood who believed that the Human Soul could evolve into a degree of "Perfection" in this present life and comprehend the "Mystery" of the trinity. They believe that when a person´s soul reaches this state of "Perfection" and "Union with God" they could commit any criminal, Immoral and sinful acts without staining their souls.
        Gnosticism and Eastern Mysticism (including the Mystery Babylonian religion) teaches that its members are "Gods in the making" and that Lucifer is the one that makes us realize the "God within us" and evolve this into our full potential (without the need to repent for our sins) as his name means "Morning Star" and "The Illuminated One", this doctrine which is nearly identical in all Secret Societies called the Illuminati (The Illuminated Ones)

Lucifer or Phosphorus "the bringer of light"). The name of the planet Venus, when seen in the morning before sunrise. The same planet was called Hesperus, Vesperugo, Vesper, Noctifer, or Nocturnus, when it appeared in the heavens after sunset. Lucifer as a personification is called a son of Astraeus and Aurora or Eos, of Cephalus and Eos, or of Atlas By Philonis he is said to have been the father of Ceyx. He is also called the father of Daedalion and of the Hesperides. Lucifer is also a surname of several goddesses of light, as Artemis, Aurora, and Hecaté.

Artemis, the Roman Diana, goddess of the chase, daughter of Zeus and Latona, sister of Apollo: in Hom., women who die suddenly are said to be slain by her agana belea: cf. Apollōn.

Apollōn , ho, Apollo


DAMON "Rise, Lucifer, and, heralding the light,

Both Tyre and Babylon repeated the folly of Lucifer whose goal is always to divert people away from the Word of God. Lucifer is ZOE the daughter of SOPHIA and was called the "beast and female instructing principle.>
Ezekiel 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

Ezekiel 28.13
  in deliciis paradisi Dei fuisti omnis lapis pretiosus operimentum tuum sardius topazius et iaspis chrysolitus et onyx et berillus sapphyrus et carbunculus et zmaragdus aurum opus decoris tui et foramina tua in die qua conditus es praeparata sunt

CREATED: means to created (qualified) to cut down, selected, dispatch.

As Prince of the power of the air (Eph.2: 1-2), he is continuously broadcasting his lies and deceptions into their minds via the five sense gates. Helel works very hard in the children of disobedience (Eph.2: 1-2). Helel seldom inspires indifference to religion, as religion is his favorite form of deception. His children are usually the opposers of the true religion or energetic transgressors of the Torah (Clark's Commentary Vol.6, page 437).

"Lucifer, the son of the morning," who was the pretended enlightener of the souls of men. The name Lucifer, in Isaiah, is the very word from which Eleleus, one of the names of Bacchus, evidently comes. It comes from "Helel," which signifies "to irradiate" or "to bring light," and is equivalent to the name Tithon. Now we have evidence that Lucifer, the son of Aurora, or the morning, was worshipped in the very same character as Nimrod, when he appeared in his new character as a little child.

He, moreover, was not in the substance of our flesh; but, bringing down from heaven some spiritual body or other, passed through the Virgin Mary as water through a pipe, neither receiving nor borrowing aught thence. The resurrection of our present flesh he denies, but (maintains that) of some sister-flesh. Of the Law and the prophets some parts he approves, some he disapproves; that is, he disapproves all in reprobating some. A Gospel of his own he likewise has, beside these of ours.

Is. 23:12 And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice,
        O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim;
        there also shalt thou have no rest.
Is. 23:13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not,
        till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness:
        they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.
Is. 23:14 Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.
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.


Is. 23:16 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. 23:17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre,
        and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication
        with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.

But let them be true, as you maintain, yet will you have us also believe that Mellonia, for example, introduces herself into the entrails, or Limentinus, and that they set themselves to make known  what you seek to learn? Did you ever see their face their deportment, their countenance? or can even these be seen in lungs or livers?

May it not happen, may it not come to pass, although you craftily conceal it, that the one should take the other's place, deluding, mocking, deceiving, and presenting the appearance of the deity invoked?

If the magi, who areso much akin to  soothsayers, relate that, in their incantations, pretended gods  steal in frequently instead of those invoked;  that some of these, moreover, are spirits of grosser substance,  who pretend that they are gods, and delude the ignorant by their lies and deceit,- why should we not similarly believe that here, too, others substitute themselves for those who are not, that they may both strengthen your superstitious beliefs, and rejoice that victims are slain in sacrifice to them under names not their own?

The Jacob-cursed Levites as the Pattern for instrumentalists performed as SOOTHSAYERS with instrumental noise to attract the good demons and expel the evil.

13. Or, if you refuse to believe this on account of its novelty, how can you know whether there is not some one, who comes in place of all whom yon invoke, and substituting himself in all parts of the world shows to you what appear to be many gods and powers? Who is that one? some one will ask. We may perhaps, being instructed by truthful authors, be able to say; but, lest you should be unwilling to believe us, let my opponent ask the Egyptians, Persians, Indians, Chaldeans, Armenians, and all the others who have seen and become acquainted with these things in the more recondite arts.

Then, indeed, you will learn who is the one God, or who the very many under Him are,
who pretend to be gods, and make sport of men's ignorance .."

Even now we are ashamed to come to the point at which not only boys, young and pert, but grave men also, cannot restrain their laughter, and men who have been hardened into a strict and stern humour.  (Arnobius Against the Heathen, Ante-Nicene, VI, p. 479).

And be not deceived or deluded with vain hopes by that which is said by some ignorant and most presumptious pretenders, that they are born of God, and are not subject to the decrees of fate; that His palace lies open to them if they lead a life of temperance, and that after death as men, they are restored without hinderance, as if their father's abode;

not by that which the "Magi assert, that they have intercessory prayers, won over by which some powers make the way easy to those who are striving to mount to heaven; not by that which Etruria holds out in the Acherontic books that souls become, and are freed from the law of death, if the blood of certain animals is offered to certain deities.

These are empty delusions, and excite vain desires. None but the Almighty God can preserve souls; nor is there any one besides who can give them length of days, and grant to them also a spirit which shall never die."

(Footnote: Magi are 'certain fortune-telling vagrant seers, who persuade the rich that they have power with the gods, by means of charms and sacrifices... on familiar terms with evil powers, and thus able to accomplish whatever is within these spirit's power.) (Arnibious, Ante-Nicene, VI, p. 457

Lectio Divina is Latin for "divine reading," "spiritual reading," or "holy reading" and represents a method of prayer and scriptural reading intended to promote communion with God and to provide special spiritual insights. The principles of lectio divina were expressed around the year A.D. 220 and practiced by Catholic monks, especially the monastic rules of Sts. Pachomius, Augustine, Basil, and Benedict.

Further, the dangers inherent in
opening our minds and listening for voices should be obvious. The contemplative prayers are so eager to hear something—anything—that they can lose the objectivity needed to discern between God’s voice, their own thoughts, and the infiltration of demons into their minds. Satan and his minions are always eager for inroads into the minds of the unsuspecting, and to open our minds in such ways is to invite disaster. We must never forget that Satan is ever on the prowl, seeking to devour our souls (1 Peter 5:8) and can appear as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), whispering his deceptive lies into our open and willing minds.

Eur. Supp. 203 . He has my praise, whichever god brought us to live by rule from chaos and from brutishness, first by implanting reason, and next by giving us a tongue to declare our thoughts, so as to know the meaning of what is said,
        [210] with one another whatever our countries lack. And where sight fails us and our knowledge is not sure, the seer foretells by gazing on the flame, by reading signs in folds of entrails, or by divination from the flight of birds.
        Are we not then too proud, when heaven has made such [215] preparation for our life,
                not to be content with it?
        But our presumption seeks to lord it over heaven,
                and in the pride of our hearts we think we are wiser than the gods.

1Corinthians 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,

This is not speaking as in the command to SPEAK one to another to teach and comfort. Sounding brass and tinkling cymbals here are identifying marks of people who have NO LOVE. Even if they COULD speak all of the languages in the world there would be no love. The command is to SPEAK or LOGOS the Word of Christ which is the opposite of rhetoric, singing or playing instruments. Speaking in the tongues of angels was IN FACT making music in tongues.

"It is a great mistake to imagine that back of their idolatry and their idol sacrifices there is nothing but an empty vacuity. True enough, as 1 Cor 8:4 makes plain, the gods of the idols have no existence whatever; no being by the name of Jupiter exists, and this is true with respect to all other gods. But something does exist, something that is far more terrible than these pseudo-gods, namely an entire kingdom of darkness which is hostile to God, a host of demons or fallen angels who are ruled by the greatest of their number, namely Satan, Eph. 2:3; 6:12. (Lenski)

Enoch 7:1 It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them, elegant and beautiful.

2 And when the angels, (3) the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamoured of them, saying to each other,
, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men,
        and let us beget children.

Richard Foster’s book, Devotional Classics, he quotes 16th Century mystic Madame Guyon to describe the practice, “…make use of scripture to quiet your mind. First read a passage of scripture. Once you sense the Lord’s presence, the content of what you read is no longer important. The scripture has served its purpose; it has quieted your mind; it has brought you to him. …You should always remember that you are not there to gain an understanding of what you have read; rather you are reading to turn your mind from the outward things to the deep parts of your being. You are not there to learn or to read, but you are there to experience the presence of your Lord!”

Carl Jung as a great psychiatrist emphasized personal renewal through 'meditative prayer' involving 'centering down' to become quiet and passive, then used guided imagery and visualization of Christ" "Foster called for unity in the body of Christ through the "five streams of Christianity, the contemplative, the holiness, the charismatic, social justice and vangelical."Vasivig recalled that his first experience of "meditative prayer" using visualization was taught to him personally by Episcopalian mystic Agnes Sanford. He explained the contemplative aspect of Renovare's spiritual disciplines, the attainment of a state of mind that is totally passive and uncluttered by rational thought Practicing the "Presence of God" is actually a form of Zen Meditation."
Virtually every evangelical Christian would quickly reject the proposal, especially if he were aware that a ouija board is an instrument of divination, a device for contacting spirit entities, which the Bible explicitly condemns (Dt 18:10). The basic problem with divination is that, even though the diviner is sincerely attempting to contact God, the entities with which one ends up communicating are demons (posing as Jesus, God, angels, departed loved ones, aliens, gods, etc.).
