Don McLaughlin Instrumental Music

Don McLaughlin Instrumental Music Worship Mark of the Beast: The BEAST is the invasion of a new style of music and Satyric drama.  The NACC has fed all of the proof texts and "handled" preachers and instruct others about how to transistion YOUR congregation into the Instrumental Sect.
Don McLaughlin follow's Rick Atchley's both/and which is based on all of the "proof texts" as the PATTERN for the Jacob-Cursed and God-Abandoned Levites. Their instrumental prophesying was called soothsaying or sorcery used as EXORCISM to drive away the DUNG-FLIES during animal slaughter God did not command.

No one in history has concocted such a demonic ploy as to say that NOT using instruments--machines for doing hard work mostly making war--is a BARRIER to those following Christ.  Not using instruments--sourced from Lucifer says the Spirit OF Christ-is claimed to HINDER THE GOSPEL.  Or not using instruments is just based on the TRADITIONS of Churches of Christ they invented. There is no way that any one could be so Biblically illiterate and morally bankrupt. As hard as it is to take, The Spirit CHRIST gifted elders as THE only Pastor teachers. The pattern is to teach that which has been taught. Job One as the mark of APT elders is to eject the cunning craftsmen or sophists.

It's a mark of "Angels of Light" that people would DEMAND unity in diversity always meaning that YOU must submit to MY diversity or get out: the mantra of the BOTH/AN folly is to "get over it or get out."j

Eph 4:14
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, 
        and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
        by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness whereby they lie in wait to deceive;


-Panourg-êma  A. knavish trick, villainy, S.El.1387 (lyr.), LXX Si.1.6 (v.l.); sophistry, Gal.5.251; cf. panourgeuma.

Cunning craftiness has the same meaning as SOPHOS:
1Cor. 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you
        seemeth to be wise [sophos] in this world,
        let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1Cor. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
        For it is written,
        He taketh the wise  sophia
        in their own craftiness. pa^nourg-ia
1Cor. 3:20 And again,
        The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, sophōn
        that they are vain.
-Sophia A. cleverness or skill in handicraft and art, as in carpentry, tektonos, hos rha te pasēs eu eidē s. Il.15.412; of the Telchines, Pi.O.7.53; entekhnos s., of Hephaestus and Athena, Pl.Prt.32 1d; of Daedalus and Palamedes, X.Mem.4.2.33, cf. 1.4.2; in music and singing, tekhnē kai s. h.Merc.483, cf. 511; in poetry, Sol.13.52, Pi.O.1.11
Don McLaughlin:  while de-emphasizing traditions and practices that create barriers to some who are seeking to follow Christ.

Saying that NOT using instruments is just your heritage or tradition is a lie because it is not true and intends to slander others  making it very difficult for the LAITY that feeds your face to object for FEAR of being one of those. Shame! Shame!  This makes the FACT that Good will cast the religious craftsmen ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE seem more reasonable.

Jesus said that if we want to seek Him "all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I WILL GIVE YOU REST. He said come OUTSIDE the camps or "observations" and come learn of me. In prophecy and fulfilment Jesus would be MUSICALLY MOCKED on the way to the Cross.  The singers-instrument players among the Jews and all institutional worship centers for hire were called PARASITES. Jesus removed the laded burden (songs and taxes) and the burden laders.  Don wants to LADE more burdens.


1823  Preaching for pay? "Give money to make poor pious youths learned clergy, or vain pretenders to erudition; and they pray that they may preach to you; yes, and pay them too.

Was there ever such a craft as priestcraft? No, it is the craftiest of all crafts. It is so crafty that it obtains by its craft the means to make craftsmen, and then it makes the deluded support them!" (Campbell, Alexander, Christian Baptist, Dec. 1, 1823, Vol. 1, p. 91)

1825  A Restoration of the Ancient Order of Things--by Alexander Campbell

No. III I have no idea of seeing, nor one wish to see, the sects unite in one grand army.
This would be dangerous to our liberties and laws.
For this the Saviour did not pray.
        It is only the disciples of Christ dispersed among them,
        that reason and benevolence would call out of them.
Let them unite who love the Lord, and
then we shall soon see the hireling priesthood
and their worldly establishments prostrate in the dust.

Contrary to the Instrumental sowers of Discord, Alexander said that IF there were baptized disciples in the SECTS "they should COME OUT OF BABYLON."  He said that the "Christians" hand only shown how to be divided.

Therefore, Don McLaughlin is a SECTARIAN: Self-pleasure outlawed by Paul in Romans 1 includes all of the hypocritic arts and crafts: rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting. Only then could the ONE PIECE PATTERN from the wilderness onward could take place: "Using one mind and one mouth to speak that is written for our learning" or "Scripture for our comfort." That was the one piece Pattern Paul commanded Timothy to observe. A heretic or sectarian is one who uses the performing arts to "create mental excitement" so you can TAKE other people's property and make it your own.


Vocal or instrumental rejoicing including rhetoric was outlawed for the Church of Christ (thee Rock) in the wilderness.  No one in recorded history claimed any authority for musical performance as worship in the SCHOOL OF CHRIST before the Disciples-Christians in 1878.

1851 Early in 1851, J. Henshall was asked by a man who said "we are far in the rear of Protestants" whether "instrumental music in our churches" would consummate "the great object of Psalmody." He replied that the worldly minded might seek such "helps to their devotion," but true spiritual worship had no place for an entertaining display, a choir, and "a wooden devotion quickener." The 1850s saw precious little advance in the instrument cause; almost no one favored it. "It is scarcely necessary for us to say to our readers that we regard the organ and violin worship, and even the fashionable choir singing of our country, as mockery of all that is sacred," said Tolbert Fanning in the 1856 Gospel Advocate.(9) The next flare-up revealed that fifty years after Thomas Campbell's Declaration and Address (1809), Dr. L. L. Pinkerton had placed a melodeon in the church at Midway, Kentucky. Answering a question in January 1860, Benjamin Franklin mused that a church without the Spirit of Christ might need an instrument for amusement and entertainment in place of religion and worship. This stung Pinkerton because he was the only church known to be using one. Offering the aid argument, he said the singing had been so bad as to "scare even the rats from worship." Practice sessions with its use had been followed by use in regular worship.(10)

1859 Restoration Movement Boles:  A second departure was the introduction of instrumental music in the worship. This began about 1859. It was not introduced because it was found in the New Testament; neither were those who introduced it in the worship guided by the New Testament. But few have been bold enough to attempt to prove that the New Testament authorizes the use of instrumental music in worship. Many have claimed on other grounds that they have a right to use instrumental music in worship, but the point made here is that no one, guided by the New Testament, introduced the organ into the worship. Errett Gates, in his history referred to above, p. 250, says:
        "The organ controversy was the missionary controversy in a new form,
         for both grew out of the opposition to human innovations in the work and worship of the church ...
The organ party treated it as a question of expediency on which there should be forbearance and liberty.
The antiparty treated it as a matter of principle." The arguments now used to justify the use of instrumental music in worship are "after-thoughts" and were not used when the instrument or organ was first imposed on the brotherhood.

Christ outlawed VOCAL or INSTRUMENTAL Rejoicing for the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness.  The godly people attended synagogue which was a SCHOOL OF THE WORD ONLY.  When the ekklesia assembles Paul call it a synagogue.



Using the Rick Atchley Both/And they promised that they would ONLY introduce the organ knowing that they were sowing discord and offending generations.  However, like Atchley's faithful  vow when violated he said That was then/Bur This is now.  You cannot be a little bit  IDOLATROUS and God marks for burning those who KNOW that they will sow discord but are driven by a BAND OF BROTHERS more than the Blood of Jesus.

Again lying about Paul:"

We came to understand that for many of our members, and their family and friends, our current worship is not always adequate in inspiring them to a closer walk with God. This led us to consider ways that we could more effectively use our worship services to accomplish God’s mission for us. This examination, as with all of our other areas of ministry, was done against the backdrop of Scripture. In considering Paul’s admonition to the Corinthians about saving souls

The ONLY worship concept from the wilderness onward is to give heed to GOD by giving attention to His Word.  The LOGOS is the Regulative Principle and contrary to the preacher plot the Logos outlaws personal opinions, personal experiences, singing, playing instruments, acting, dancing, clapping and all of the EFFEMINATE acting up.  Jesus said that the Kingdom with Him as King and only teacher does NOT come with observation: that means religious services which can be seen, heard, felt or smelled.

(I Cor. 9:22, “…I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”), and considering our current worship offering, we saw a gap as well as an opportunity. To fill that gap and take advantage of the opportunity to reach more souls,

Religious worship was always a sexual or virtual sexual activity: the Vineyard or Fuller expects the music to bring on a sexual-like climax with Jesus.  Worship is IN the SPIRIT and not IN THE FLESH to exclude the dogs or concision: these were the cynic old style praise singers howling and seeking a partner. WE cannot OFFER anything especially our personal worship IN THE SPIRIT (place) and giving attention TO THE TRUTH or Word of God.  Music marks hypocrisy as well is USING Paul to justify NOT going.

But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void. 1 Cor 9:15

For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel 1 Cor 9:16

For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. 1 Cor 9:17

What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. 1 Cor 9:18

For though I be free from all men,
        yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. 1 Cor 9:19

1Cor. 9:20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;


yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more
I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge,
Paul did not keep the Law of the Monarchy where Instrumental noise was God's abandonment to worship the starry host. In the beginning and now Apollo-Abaddon-Apollon is dredged up from Hell where he had fallen. He is the Leader of the Muses or LOCUSTS. The Purpose Driven is to drive out the Little Flock of the SECT that is called the WAY and preserve the craftsmen, singers and instrument players as sorcerers to be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.
1Cor. 9:21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under THE LAW OF CHRIST that I might gain them that are without law.


yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more
I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge,

1Cor. 9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more
I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge,

1Cor. 9:23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake,
        that I might be partaker thereof with you.
1Cor. 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all,
        but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
1Cor. 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.
        Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1Cor. 9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly;
        so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1Cor. 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:
        lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Anathema means a thing or person dedicated to a religious site claiming to adorn it: they CANNOT be redeemed and MUST BE BURNED.
yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more
I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge,
Shame! Shame! Shame! Cheer up it is all prophesied in Revelation 17f
