Ex-Church of Christ Review

Adam Good Is The trinity Blasphemy
Trinity beginning as tripple goddesses, then father god, mother (spirit) mortal, and wicked little son and also music to mock Jesus are all resourced out of IMPURE religion where any self-exhibition as rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting are virtual sexual observations.

5.3.17 Seek The Old Paths: Christianity And Islam #4: DOCTRINE ABOUT JESUS 
1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;
The Enemies of Jesus Christ
John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying,
        For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy;
        and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Jesus called them blasphemers because He always said that He was the SON of God.
John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified [at his baptism]
        and sent into the world, [Those OF the World are earth-born and not spiritual. They are called a Viper Race]
        Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?


Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi or Tammuz in Ezekiel 8

Mike Cope 2017 PBL The Hieros Gamos Theme

Laura Buffington: With sex playing such a prominent role in the art and life of OUR culture, the church would be wise to reclaim the metaphor of sex AS salvation. Making the whole story of our lives about the salvation found in physical intimacy is to miss the grander picture of intimate salvation promised to Beloved Humanity by God the Lover.

my pastoral impulse this week is to proclaim the message of the Song of Songs. And here’s why: We desperately need public, communal language about sex, and we have an oft-overlooked resource in the Bible.
        Song of Songs is unique in several ways, one of which is the fact that it’s the only place in Scripture where a woman’s voice leads the conversation (the woman speaks 61 of 117 verses). In light of what we’ve heard lately, it seems like a good time to let a wise woman speak about sexual activity that’s right and good, a woman who not only speaks but sings and shouts about intimate, sensual, erotic passion. And in all her talk about kissing, touching, tasting, and smelling, she does not offend with crass or vulgar language. She exemplifies how it’s possible to speak about sex and intimacy appropriately. We might do well to let her teach us a thing or two.

3.30.16 The Israelites fell into instrumental-trinitarian idolatry at Mount Sinai and God removed The Book of the Covenant of Grace from the Civil-Military-Clergy.  In the Second Law given because of Transgression they were warned that their sin beyond redemption was conditional: Would YOU lie, cheat, steal the church house of widows and sow discord for this?   Would you follow or allow to teach your youth TO LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT anyone who said that God Commanded an Instrumental Sectarian Institution for the first claim of a spirit's authority in recorded history?  Even at a "we promise" meeting in Tennessee in the 20th century WE PROMISE only the simple ORGAN but never AS worship.

Ex-Church of Christ Topical Index: 

3.18.14 Things are coming together for Gog and Magog. The Kairos Church Planting group is supported by the three once-Christian colleges confessing that they are working together: they are also working with or being worked by the NACC which has lasted for a hundred years.

When you hear the SOUNDS-LIKE harps and other panic-generating sounds such as the bow over New Zion, there is another angel sent to the LIVING saying PREACH the Gospel because the SOUNDS silencing the Word of Christ in the Prophets and apostles it is a SOUND OF SOON JUDGMENT.

Revelation 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

John 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.
John 11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

Those who SEE through the rhetoricians, singers or instrument players cannot be Christians:

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 8:22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him,
        Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
John 8:14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

Here, however, it is used broadly to designate the type of elaborate Greek lyric which like the odes of Pindar and Bacchylides narrates a myth or legend with little if any dialogue.

Aristot. Poet. 1449b Tragedy is, then, a representation of an action6 that is heroic and complete and of a certain magnitude—by means of language enriched with all kinds of ornament, each used separately in the different parts of the play: it represents men in action and does not use narrative, and through pity and fear it effects relief to these and similar emotions.7 By "language enriched" I mean that which has rhythm and tune, i.e., song, and by "the kinds separately" I mean that some effects are produced by verse alone and some again by song. Since the representation is performed by living persons, it follows at once that one essential part of a tragedy is the spectacular effect, and, besides that, song-making and diction.

The Spirit of Christ called Lucifer "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.

  1. If you say that Churches of Christ which did not use INSTRUMENTS during the School of the Word from the Wilderness onwwars was just and evil tradition.
  2. And from Genesis to Revelation musical machines are said to have been brought by Lucifer (ZOE) into the garden of Eden and resulted in some sexual hanky panky to REVELATION when the Babylon mother of harlot rises again and ALL of her religious STAFF are called sorcerers and will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.
  3. Then Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that you despise the Word and the Latin word is BLASPHEME

THIS PAPER WILL HELP YOU FLEE BABYLON whose Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) uses "lusted after fruits" (Same as in Isaiah 8) as self-speakers, singers, instrument players and ALL religious craftsmen who were called PARASITES.







Check.gifANATHEMA is to be ACCURSED for preaching a GOSPEL of Rhetoric, Singing, Playing Instruments, Acting or DECORATING a place as a WORSHIP CENTER








NUMBERS 11 THE REST OF THE STORY ABOUT MUTTERING AND MURMURING:  Violates Christ's outlawing vocal or instrument rejoicing or speaing your own words in Numbers 10




The role of PREACHER as SENT Evangelist



The MARKS of the BEASTS (Zoe) and the INSECTS-PARASITES (LOCUSTS or musical worship teams)


The Purpose of the Purpose Driven Church of Christ? A Church of Christ existed in the Wilderness commanded by the Spirit OF Christ the Rock.  It was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word.  It was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing and self-speak by lawless preachers.

The PURPOSE ignored by everyone trying to justify their own ROLE for which there is no DOLE by including lots of WOMEN who are much nicer to have around the office and at Dunkin Donut. Furthermore, flakey-wakey boy singers and girl singers are more enjoyable to ATTEND TO (worship) than old Senior Males who have only the Word to teach as it has been taught.

The Purpose was "That all be SAVED (safe) and Come to a Knowledge of THE TRUTH. They WORD is truth. Word or Logos is the Regulative Principle and is the opposite of preacher self talk, singing, playing instruments, acting, dancing and engaging in sexual activity be it ever so virtual.

Men are to lift HOLY PALMS (as if reading the Word without wrath: wrath is ORGY and silences ALL men but the reader as well as the women because:

ORGE or WRATH identifies all of the arousal activities and is explicitely the mark of homosexuality.
The Women, if permitted to disobey the command, exercise AUTHENTIA which is defacto sexual and erotic.  Words which originate out of human imagination and Cunning Craftsmanship are UNLAWFUL since Christ outlawed Speaking your own words or seeking your own pleasure.

We are informed many times that when males "sing and play an instrument" in a religious sense he is "drunk on wine, perverted or just mocking." That is proven when the Levites MUSICALLY MOCKED Jesus and reproached Him by "exposing His nakedness." The prophecy in Psalm 22 and 41 was that Jesus would be sodomized which was the old Levite warrior way to show dominance over the enemy who did not turn coward when they heard all of the instrumental noise.

I will post the universal reason the command from the wilderness onward was to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.  Paul commanded Timothy to give attendance to the PUBLIC READING of the Word, to Comfort and Doctrine.

7.01.13 Gender Inclusive and Egalitarian  Churches of Christ:
Gender-focused churches are not related to the Apostolic teaching nor to the historic Church of Christ. To say that Scripture from Genesis to Revelation and the danger of Mother Goddess worship has always and has now NEUTERED many churches of Christ so that their performance preaching and music calls forth a lot of ridicule.  They have to say that all of the Scriptures lie and simply did not understand OUR CULTURE.  At the same time they twist the Scriptures to say that what Paul outlawed did not prevent what THEY want to impose. This normally happens after a senior preacher has usurped all authority, intimidated the elders, fired the vocational ministers and HIRED female ministers.  Christ in Isaiah 3 defined this time perfectly where the women and BOYS or the effeminate (or worse) rule over you. Men have already violated the direct command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.

1Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

In the Book of Enoch referenced by Jude those for whom God will come in horrible judgement are specificially those who CAN BE seduced by mixed-sex choirs, musical instruments, drama, 'wearing of apparel' as seductive clergy garb (worn by the Levites). The holy Sethites who ignored the teaching fell into this musical idolatry, changed their minds but could never get back up. Knowing they were doomed they sought comfort by seducing as many other people as possible. From Hitler and beyond the MARK of success is how many people you can entice to accompany them in BOWING while the PIPERS pipe: Jesus called them "children" which was a dirty word.

The prophecy in Revelation is that again Satan will be loosed and knowing that he has a short time will work really hard to seduce as many as possible before Lake of Fire time. IF POSSIBLE the ELECT (those added by Christ to His church) will be deceived: those who ARE deceived are simply not recognized by Jesus.

MOST of the mildy-musical religions are said to have fallen into a "rock and roll" style which is that Black influence of the "F" word. Among recognized groups a few Churches of Christ have not already fallen into INSTRUMENTAL "worship" or its VIRTUAL-INSTRUMENTAL with a cappella which in its origin are the castrated praise singers working for the MOTHER church.

2 Thessalonians those who are warned not to be moved are tempted by:

1. Purpose Driven or deliberate deceivers.
2. Something unknown: a piece of ignorance. Epithet for those who are predestinated who HAD deceived the whole world.
3. Members is defined as "A Member of the Church of Christ."
4. The METHOD of deception is musical melody.

I didn't make this up! That is why they are in the Davidic MAKING WAR mode and will not or cannot hear what you say. That's fine: seems the WORLD and the WISE (Sophists speakers, singers, instrument players) are marked as NOT supposing to hear (Matthew 23). Since the BEAST is clearly defined as "A new style of singing or drama" the MARK will be anyone who can be seduced. It's all in the book.

4.12.13 The Hate-Mongering against Churches of Christ who have never--since the Qahal, Synagogue, Ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) violated the direct command against "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or any high-sounding rhetoric." Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites to make that more certain; the Ezekiel 33 version names entertainment speakers for pay, singers and instrument players. The mark of instruments has always been "NO, I will not listen to or obey the Word of God."

The Literary way PSALLO is used in the Greek and Latin Text: all speak of warriors or evil men and women "plucking" things we won't mention.

All of the massive sowing of discord in attacking Churches of Christ which were never "unioned" with the Disciples or Christian churches was originally inventing the PSALLO Word to say that God commanded instrumental music. We have posted the available information about the PSALLO word which proves that the translators of the Septuagint used the PSAO based words because of its destructive use by the Jacob-Cursed and God-abandoned Levites to operate the sacrificial system to which God abandoned them BECAUSE of Musical idolatry.

The BEAST in Hebrew and Greek especially Revelation identifies A new Style of Music or Drama performed by the "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos).  John calls the speakers, singers and instrument players  SORCERERS who will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire. That fulfills the prophetic type by the Spirit OF Christ In Isaiah 30 Who says that the MARK in sight and sound of God driving His enemies into "hell" will be wind, string and percussion instruments.

Commands, Examples, Necessary Inferences  from Genesis to Revelation, all historic scholars and all founders of denominations. For instance, Jesus never commanded, 'Thou shalt not be a hypocrite." However, He identified the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites and in the Ezekiel 33 version the Spirit OF Christ named self-speakers, singers, instrument players and the AUDIENCE who went out to "hear what comes from the word of the Lord." SO, we might rationally INFERENCE that Jesus doesn't want any hypocrites or performers of the hypocritic arts and crafts speaking or performing while HE is visiting to speak when the Elders obey the direct command to "speak that which has been taught."

The Ex-Church of Christ ANTI-patternists want you to believe that THEY can add three or four MORE pieces to the pattern and give you LIBERTY.

8.09.12 The Spirit OF Christ denied that God commanded king, kingdom, Temple, priests, animal sacrifices or Levites who were SOOTHSAYERS with instrumental noise (never music).

God's true command was that the Levites "stand in ranks" ready to execute any civillian or any Levite who came near any "holy" thing or into any "holy" place.  They were under the Kings and Commanders of the Army.

If you say that God commanded something He did not command The Spirit OF Christ in Jeremiah He calls it despising or Blasphemy.

The word "psallo" upon which instrumental churches are built and ANTI-non instrumental people sow discord means PLUCK: primarily a bow string.  The word never in recorded history meant to Play a Harp much less Play a Melody upon a Harp.

To lead people into trying to silence the mouth of the "victim" based on the PLUCKING word with the same root as SOP further insists that The Spirit of Christ, the inspired writers and recorded history prior to the Disciples were TERMINALLY IGNORANT.

A literate Holy Spirit or Paul or anyone worthy of being a disciple of Christ given A holy spirit or A good conscience to be able to read BLACK text on BROWN paper would know two sets of facts:

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.

Since melos or melody is the opposite of rhema or speaking about the covenant and law, it is impossible to both sing AND make melody at the same time with or without an instrument. The "logos" forms of speech are also the opposite of poetry or music.

There are many more compound words: none are used in the Bible even by the Jacob-Cursed Levites who made noise as SOOTHSAYERS proving that all ritualistic sacrifices or "services" there was a horrifying need to perform EXORCISM.

4.22.12 Why the Ex-Church of Christers may support WITCHCRAFT, Soothsaying (Levites) or Sorcerers (Revelation 18)

The INNYS and OUTYS are both NUTS in the shell game: neither, dear sucker or suckerette are under the SHELL.  Soothsayers, sorcerers or witches will hurt them if they can get you into their CIRCLE or out of their enemies: the exorcists.  I don't believe that one can sell the free water of the word (Isaiah 55) or violate the command of Christ NOT to seek your own pleasure OR speak your own words (Isaiah 58) without tippy toeing around the Lake of Fire.  The symptoms (Isaiah 30) is the sound of rhetoric, singing or playing the wind, string and percussion instruments of Lucifer the singing and harp playing prostitute.

Psalms 150:2 Halal him for his mighty acts:
        Halal him according to his excellent greatness.
Psalms 150:3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet:
        Halal him with the psaltery and harp.
Psalms 150:4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance:
        Halal him with stringed instruments and organs.
Psalms 150:5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals:
         Halal him upon the high sounding cymbals.
Psalms 150:6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.
        Halal ye the LORD.
MUSICAL DISCORDERS DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT GOD ABANDONED THEIR "PATTERNISTS" TO WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST. These were the same "gods" they worshipped at Mount Sinai which was a sin without redemption.


Jacob WARNED us not to attend the assemblies of the Levites nor to make a covenant with them. This Covenant was a covenant with death and the NOT commanded animal slaughter or the NOT commanded burnt offerings (Isaiah 1, Jeremiah 7).  These were the blood and flesh lust of the Civil-Military-Clergy complex Christ in the prophets called robbers and parasites.  Therefore, when people intend to sow discord to wrestle the church houses of widows and honest workers you know that the END-time control of the Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 17) is using the lusted after fruits (same as in Amos) as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players John called sorcerers who HAD already deceived the whole world.

John Mark Hicks, Johnny Melton, Bobby Valentine: A Gathered People Revisioning the Assembly as Transforming Encounter.

3.20.12 These men claim that Jesus PARTICIPATED in the Biblical and Babyonl festivals in Jerusalem. And He took the opportunity to define spiritual festivals.  Scripture says that the church is built upon (educated) the Apostles and Prophets: Christ being the Spirit in the Prophets and Jes8us of Nazareth making these prophecies more certain.  Peter says that if you go outside that circle you are a false teacher.  Mose people who have troubles and cause troubles simply do not know the story  line and the separation between the Civil-Military-Clergy abandoned to worship the starry host AND the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the Wilderness which never changed. It had one piece to its pattern; Rest, Read and Rehearse the Word of God.  I am afraid that people who corrupt the Word (sell learning at retail) or those see godliness as a means of financial gain (occupation) can never play the role of an honest Disciple and follow the pattern of PREACHING the word by READING the Word. There is a simple test: they have been DELUDED and the Lying Wonders are specificially using the performing artists in their religious observations.

Left wing religionists and Right wing religionists are attached to the same insect: the ony way to fly is to beat their wings together.   Most of those in the EX group have no ability to read the Bible or the Restoration history.  Paul warned that when people lose the LOVE for the truth God sends them strong delusions so that they believe a lie and are damned. The MARK is lying wonders.

See how God sends STRONG delusions to those who attempt to TRUMP the Word with their own PATTERNISM by Al Maxey.

PROBLEM: Ex-Church of Christ are guilty of forsaking the assembly of "ourselves" and tried to build a little tower of Babylon to control a certain area of turf to call THE AUDIENCE into a kirk or circle.  Christ sent them strong delusions so that they performed lying wonders: that includes what Jesus identified as Scribes and Pharasees, hypocrites by pointing to the Ezekiel example where Christ MARKED self-speakers (sons of the Devil), singers and instrument players.

EX-CHURCH OF CHRIST TV-GUY:Those who CAUSED the problem will now FIX IT if the price is right. Jeep mechanic to my wife: I broke your heater but I can repair it for three hundred dollars.  This is a universal patternism of those who see godliness as a means of financial gain (occupation) or who corrupt the Word (selling learning at retail or adultery).  Anytime you sell your body for what God made free of charge you are a prostitute.

If you preach out of your head in the morning or use disturbing complex harmony to sing Twila Paris or the "singy-clappy fella minister" you will have FACILITATED the forsaking of the assembly.

1 Ti.6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words,
        even the
words of our Lord Jesus Christ, [that's CENI the ex people always lie about]
        and to the
doctrine which is according to godliness;
1 Tim 6:4  He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words,
        whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil
1 Tim 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,
destitute of the truth,
        supposing that
gain is godliness:
        from such
withdraw thyself.  [apostasize]

Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words:  [anything to the "left" of the prophets and apostles]
        for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
"Believeth not" is the same as
Apeith-eia A. disobedience
Apeith-eō A. to be disobedient, refuse compliance
Apistos , on, 1. of persons and their acts, not trusty, faithless untrustworthy, shifty, unreliable,
disobedient, disloyal,  2. Act., distrustfully, suspiciously,

That is why the "believeth nots" and their enablers will be damned.

Ephesians 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Ephesians 5.8 ēte gar pote skotos, nun de phōs en kuriō:

The Ex-Church of Christ gets its "assembly" from the sacrificial system to which God abandoned Israel because of musical idolatry.
The Levites were Soothsayers with Instrumental noise machines. God's ONLY command was that they stand guard and EXECUTE any ex-church of Christ person who attempted to get NEAR or into any holy place.


Isaiah 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death,
        and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through,
        it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge,
        and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Isaiah 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand;
         when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

They SHOULD have been letting the people ASSEMBLE THEMSELVES to "synagogue" which OUTLAWS that which the Ex- and not-so-ex have constructed out of their own mercinary heads.

Od. 21.424 But he spoke to Telemachus, saying: “Telemachus, the stranger [425] that sits in thy halls brings no shame upon thee, nor in any wise did I miss the mark, or labour long in stringing the bow [psallo]; still is my strength unbroken—not as the wooers scornfully taunt me. But now it is time that supper too be made ready for the Achaeans, while yet there is light, and thereafter must yet other sport be made [430] with song and with the lyre; for these things are the accompaniments of a feast.” He spoke, and made a sign with his brows, and Telemachus, the dear son of divine Odysseus, girt about him his sharp sword, and took his spear in his grasp, and stood by the chair at his father's side, armed with gleaming bronze.

The psallo word is a MARK of those willing to use the gleaming bronze if you don't agree with them.

Chris Seidman on the word Psallo and harps in revelation as authority for instruments in HIS church.

Review of Truitt Adair's review of Rick Atchley.  Preachers are shooting blanks and keeping their career path safe as long as they agree that Amos (by the Spirit of Christ) condemned only their "attitude." And as long as they say that God commanded anything in the cursed king, kingdom, temple, sacrificial system at which they made exorcism noises never called music. The church is built upon the Prophets and Apostles all who radically condemn the the Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers, parasites and hypocrites (defined as speakers, singer and instrument players). There is NO historic scholar who did not agree that Amos was condemning the use of instruments in Samaria.

I have added proof that Jesus warned about musical performers as the enemy.

When Ahaz took the sacrifices and noise (never music) outside of Jerusalem he violated God's law which quarantined the horrors behind closed doors .  If you become a Levite singer outside of the Temple in Jerusalem the PATTERN is that God will send a plague upon you.

WHY WOULD PEOPLE BE SO VIOLENT AGAINST PEOPLE JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN READ THE BIBLE? The following passage is the UNIVERSAL message which no baptized believer with A holy spirit can miss.  Paul warns the Jews in Corinth that until they converted (were baptized) they would not be able to read
BLACK text on BROWN paper. This is the most powerful proof of inspiration and Jesus the Spirit still at work in the world.
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]

See early Review of Instrumental Music in the Old Testament: Part 3

 George Girardeau speaking for all knowledgeable Bible students    

In the first place, it will be noticed from the account of the triumphant rejoicing on the shore of the Red Sea that the men sang only: "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying," etc. What can be gathered from this simple singing of the males of Israel, in praise of God for their great deliverance, in favor of instrumental music in worship, it is rather difficult to see.

In the second place, it was Miriam and the women who used instruments of music on the occasion: "And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went after her with timbrels and with dances."

See Exodus 32 as the PATTERN of all falls from Grace: all falls were the result of imposing musical instruments (machines for doing hard work mostly in making war or creating the shockand awe of religious spectacles used to fleece the lambs.

In Exodus 31 God warned against letting loose or lose custody of singing, playing and being entertained when the assembly was Called.
    In Exodus 32 the people depending on God's SILENCE to permit their IMAGINATION rose up to play in musical Idolatry.
In Deuteronomy 31 Moses defined SONGS as to be SPOKEN for instruction from God (only):
In Deuteronomy 32 in the SECOND LAW the musical idolatry was repeated.
  1. Individuals are Disciples (only) of Christ (only) and only when the elders SPEAK and teach that which has been taught.
  2. It is logical that the doctors of the Law whom Jesus said "take away the key to knowledge" insist that God DOES not speak: rather "a" spirit tells them that they can fabricated their own Commands, Examples and Necessary Inferences IF you want to be their disciple.
  3. If your shepherds fail to warn you and you FALL into the Devil's trap (His children speak on their OWN) you will never get up.
  4. God abandoned the Israelites to be destroyed by their own people and sentenced the rest to "worship the starry host."
Deut 31:21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them,
        that this song shall testify against them as a witness;
        for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed:
        for I know their imagination which they go about,
        even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.
  • All false teachers who claim that a "spirit" gives them the authority to speak and impose where God has been silent.
  • That is proof that they cannot read and just make laughingstocks of themselves and their disciples.
  • Paul said of the Corinthians that fools love to be fooled because they have no love for the truth.
  • They will hurt you in more ways you can imagine if you tamper with "god's anointeds."
  • God says that no human has the wisdom to ADD to the Word of God:

                this was always the MARK of people making the lambs dumb before the slaughter.

Deut 31:30 And Moses SPAKE in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.

Moses didn't SING this song He SPOKE it because comprehension was the purpose: teaching and admonishing.

Notice that Paul often uses forms of parallelism

II. Antithetical Parallelism--The thought of the first line is expressed by an antithesis in the second; or is counterbalanced by a contrast in the second. This parallelism is very common in the Book of Proverbs:

(a) The tongue of the wise adorneth knowledge,
{but} The mouth of the fool blurteth out folly.
Prov., xv, 2.
(b) Soundness of heart is the life of the flesh,
{but}Envy is the rot of the bones.
--Proverbs 14:30.

The thoughts of the righteous are right,
But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. Proverbs 12:5 (NKJV)

The word SPEAK is the opposite of POETRY or MUSIC. Therefore,

Eph. 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise,
        but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Eph. 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;
        but be filled with the Spirit;
Eph. 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
        {but} singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Eph. 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

This is true because you cannot SPEAK and SING at the same time in an external sense.
John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain;
        and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,
        when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
        when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
        for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
        must worship him in spirit and in truth.

You cannot worship a Spirit God in houses built by human hands or by the works of human hands.
Phil. 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Phil. 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus,
        and have no confidence in the flesh.
Plat. Theaet. 189e Socrates
As the talk which the soul has with itself about any subjects which it considers. You must not suppose that I know this that I am declaring to you. But the soul, as the image presents itself to me,
       when it thinks, is merely conversing with itself, asking itself questions and answering,

Well, then, thought and speech are the same;
        only the former, which is a silent inner conversation of the soul with itself,
has been given the special name of thought. Is not that true?


But the stream that flows from the soul in vocal utterance through the mouth has the name of speech

[Aristot. Pol. 8.1338a [1] But leisure seems itself to contain pleasure and happiness and felicity of life.

The first two reasons assert that under the Old Testament, God did not just allow instrumental music, He commanded and blessed it. Rick offered the following passages for these contentions: 2 Chronicles 5:13-14; 7:6; 29:25-26; Psalm 33:1- 3; 92:1-3; 150:1-6.

Never mind that the godly tribes were quarantined. No singer or player went INTO or NEAR a holy thing or place on the penalty of death. Some of these patterns are separated from the last by up to 300 years.


Stand in the gate of the Lords house [courts], and proclaim there this word,
        and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah,
        that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord. Jeremiah 7:2

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
        Amend your ways and your doings,
        and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Jeremiah 7:3 

Trust ye not in lying words, saying,
        The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord,
        The temple of the Lord, are these. Jeremiah 7:4

Jer. 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is WITH US?
        THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS in vain.

For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor commanded them
        in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,
        concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John,  

That the Pharisees puffed up unto strange boasting,
        were wont to pretend that the Divine Word was with them and in them,
        and therefore foolishly affirmed that they had advanced to marvellous wisdom, 
        the Spirit Itself will testify, 
        since Christ says by the Prophet Jeremiah unto them, 
                How do ye say, WE are wise, and the word of the Lord is with us?
                For nought to the scribes became their lying pen;
                the wise
men were ashamed, were dismayed and taken;
                what wisdom
is in them? because they rejected the word of the Lord.

For how are they not taken rejecting the Living and Hypostatic Word of God,
         receiving not the faith to Him-ward, 
         but dishonouring the Impress of God the Father,
         and refusing to behold His most true Form (so to say)
         through His God-befitting Authority and Power?


John 6:44 No man can come to me,
        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

2Pet. 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words
        which were spoken before by the HOLY PROPHETS
        and of the commandment of us the APOSTLES of the Lord and Saviour:

IT WAS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WHO SPOKE THROUGH THE PROPHETS AND NOT LYING SCRIBES whom He called hypocrites by naming speakers, singers and instrument players in Ezekiel 33.

    1Pet. 1:10 Of which salvation the PROPHETS have inquired and searched diligently,
            who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time
            the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
            when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ,
            and the glory that should follow.    

God did NOT speak through the lying pen of the Scribes who recorded the Monarchy which God had NOT commanded.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the WORD of his power,
        when he had by himself purged our sins,
        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high

THOSE WHO DELIBERATELY SOW DISCORD BY QUOTING THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES (hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players) are defined by the Spirit:

Jer. 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
        Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you:
        they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,
        and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me,
        The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace;
        and they say unto every one that walketh
        after the imagination of his own heart,
        No evil shall come upon you.   

Despise tthe Word of God of God and using your own words is:

Blasphēm-eō , pf. A. “beblasphēmēka” D.18.10:—speak profanely of sacred things, “eis theous” Pl.R.381e; offer rash prayers,

1. Because Christ as Spirit spoke ONLY through the prophets.
2. Those who use use the pattern of the Lying Pen of the Scribes, in fact despise and ignore the SPIRIT message.
3. Christ in Jeremiah defines that as blasphemy

Hebrew: H5006 nâ’ats naw-ats' A primitive root; to scorn; abhor, (give occasion to) blaspheme, contemn, despise, flourish, X great, provoke. 1.04.11 Bible 101a 12.29.10


1.04.11 Bible 101a
Christ in Isaiah 23 (etal, etal) that if you teach something that the Lord has not taught then you are guilty of blasphemy.
That is spell CENI as far as what anyone is allowed to speak in the name of the Lord.
If you add instruments because you are not aware of many commands against it.
And the Lord has not commanded you to impose instruments when He comes to be our sole Teacher: tha spells BLASPHEMY.
Unless you can explain the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ you MAY not be a disciple!
Matt. 11:24 But I say unto you,
        That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
Matt. 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said,

        I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
        because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent,
        and hast revealed them unto babes.
If people are forcing instruments into their worship performane grasp that music makes the lambs dumb before the slaughter.  Jesus Christ as the Son (Word) is the only way to
Matt. 11:26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
         and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;

         neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
         and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
If God HIDES Himself from the WISE. It is a soul-saving question: who ARE the Wise?
If the Son REVEALS truth to the NOT-WISE, how can you make sure Christ even knows your name?
Maybe you can speculate the CONDITIONS for Jesus to REVEAL Himself?
Matt. 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
How and where do you "come to Jesus?"
What is the meaning of "labor" and "heavy laden?"
What is the meaning of the "rest" Jesus gives us?
From what and whom does He give rest?
Matt. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
        for I am meek and lowly in heart:
        and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matt. 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
What do we do when we Rest and Learn of Jesus?
What do you think a CONDITION for Jesus to be our only Teacher?

DON'T LET ELDERS TURNED WOLVES and doctors of the law DRAG YOU OFF INTO THE BUSHES WITH LIES. Psallo never meant "play-a-harp."  The Holy Spirit knew a dozen words to tell us to play a harp but did not. That is because all instrument playing was marked as witchcraft or sorcery of evil men and women trying to pick your pockets.

Because the word PSALLO is the first attempt by the Disciples to justify their sectarianism which excluded multitutes is so critical to their position, we have taken a look at the use of the word in the Septuagint..  Psallo means to play and does not include an instrument.  If say David is playing a harp then it must be named: the addition of the harp does not change the definition of psallo to INCLUDE the harp. Otherwise the word is used in the LXX to means SING.

Lipscomb was the nest which fledged rank polytheism: The fact is that most "scholars" look up verses in a lexicon and then list the reference when the context proves the claim of Jesus that "Doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge."  1150

Alawys denounced: -[347c] For it seems to me that arguing about poetry is comparable to the wine-parties of common market-folk. These people, owing to their inability to carry on a familiar conversation over their wine by means of their own voices and discussions--such is their lack of education--put a premium on flute-girls by hiring the extraneous voice of the flute at a high price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance.

Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and dancers to the marketplace.

[1] In which of the local glories of the past, divinely blessed Thebe, did you most delight your spirit?

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia Serpent Worship. "Traces of this superstition are thought by certain critics to be discoverable in the religion of Israel. Stade mentions that W. R. Smith supposed the serpent to be the totem of the house of David (Geschichte, I, 465). H. P. Smith says: "We know of a Serpent's Stone near Jerusalem, which was the site of a sanctuary (1 Kings 1:9), and this sanctuary was dedicated to Yahweh" (Hist of Old Testament, 239, 240). Special reliance is placed on the narrative of the brazen serpent, which Hezekiah is recorded to have destroyed as leading to idolatry, (2 Kings 18:4). "In that case," says H. P. Smith, "we must treat the Nehushtan as a veritable idol of the house of Israel, which had been worshipped in the temple from the time of its erection. Serpent worship is so widespread that we should be surprised not to find traces of it in Israel" (ut supra). In the same line, see G. B. Gray, Nu, 275-76. The fancifulness of these deductions is obvious. See NEHUSHTAN. James Orr

Xenophon, Symposium II
II. When the tables had been removed and the guests had poured a libation and sung a hymn, there entered a man from Syracuse, to give them an evening's merriment. He had with him a fine flute-girl, a dancing-girl--one of those skilled in acrobatic tricks,--and a very handsome boy, who was expert at playing the cither and at dancing; the Syracusan made money by exhibiting their performances as a spectacle. [2] They now played for the assemblage, the flute-girl on the flute, the boy on the cither; and it was agreed that both furnished capital amusement. Thereupon Socrates remarked: “On my word, Callias, you are giving us a perfect dinner; for not only have you set before us a feast that is above criticism, but you are also offering us very delightful sights and sounds.”

Xenophon, Symposium VII. Then some among the rest of the banqueters kept urging Philip to go on with his comparisons, while others opposed.

No Classical Trinitarian in recorded history fell into such depths of apostasy that they defined God as three persons (people) who are individuals with their own center of consciousness.  This is polytheism

 Jay Guin etal at ONEINJESUS. Some rebuttal Ray recommends that I link here.

Jay Guin: The Holy Spirit and Revolutionary Grace. Jay represents a neo-trinitarian radically opposed to all known classical trinitarians. As articulated by H. Leo Boles the Godeahd is made up of three separated beings each, defined by others, with their own center of consciousness. One of Jay's professors says that God must be a trinity because all pagans believed in a trinity: he says that the three "people" can be seen side by side or face to face holding meetings to decide who should do what.

C. Leonard Allen Trinitarian Theology and Spiritual Life   

Trinity as “Necessary” Fact in Alexander Campbell’s “Christian System of Facts"  John Mark Hicks at Rochester Accuses Alexander Campbell of defending Trinitarianism as the only option for opposing Barton W. Stone's view of the nature of Jesus of Nazareth.  That leap is reinforced by partial quotes to make Campbell a "Trinitarian" if partially in the closet.

The History of the Trinity. No one in history defined a Christian TRIAD or Family or Society of Gods.  The modern rise among Evangelicals is marked "with a personal relationship with God" which bypasses Christ in whom dwells FULL DEITY.  Within the Restoration Movement is is "necessary" to defend church as a community which is defined in terms of "commune."

A Gathered People: Revisioning the Assembly as Transforming Encounter  by John Mark Hicks, Johnny Melton and Bobby Valentine.  These people really lust to drag you back under the sacrificial system which was the worship of the starry host to which God abandoned them because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. LU is in big trouble

Is. 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming:
        it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth;
        it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

The Ex-Church of Christ sects have developed some very warped views of the history and practicie of the Church of Christ. The church existed in all periods of history as The Church of Christ, rejected singing as a legal ACT until 373 in some places and always rejected Instruments because they understood the flood of bad press beginning with Lucifer "the singing and harp playing prostitute" in the garden of Eden up to the Mother of Harlost (Rev 17) who uses "lusted after fruits" as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players. John called the SORCERERS which also identifies the Harlot in the garden of Eden called a Musical Enchanter(ess) where she/he/it wholly seduced Even in a sexual sense says Paul.

4.27.08 What is a Sectarian or Heretic? Ex-church of Christ and some still on the DOLE love to claim that by NOT bowing and adding musical instruments (machines) even after 2,000 years makes them SECTARIAN because they continue to teach what the Bible and all recorded history writes AGAINST music as a machine or weapon which heretics USE to attract and fleeces the masses. However, a sectarian or heretic is always the one who IMPOSED something not required into practices of a church. Going deeper which most Greek Geeks dare not go, is some really vile stuff associated with music when used to alter people's minds.

4.27.08 Paul and Silas in Prision: what does the PYTHIAN spirit mean to us?

What the Sectarian Anti-Sectarians will not attack is the fact that:

1. There is no LAW of giving: rejected by all history and the Restoration Movement.
2. There is no LAW of singing: Psalms only in the beginning
3. There is no LAW of Preaching or LAW of listening: it was outlawed in the synagogue and OUT-TOOK in all of the New Testament and early history until it like music "was adopted because it was common to all pagan cults.
The Ex-Church of Christ people reject a church's right to publically teach their views against instrumental music. That view has been held by almost everyone for most of church history.  At they same time they praise the Quail Springs leadership for deliberately sowing discord and "ejecting the owners from the synagogue" as violently as any of their Jewish examples.  We have shown that all of the "preacher's stories" twist all of the Bible and church history and confess to restoring the curse of the sacrificial system which God imposed BECAUSE of musical idolatry. We have posted three reviews of Mark Henderson's sermons and this does not exhaust our review. The method is to look at a quoted verse or mention of a historical event and then claim that they have been LED to claim that "God commanded us to go and do likewise."

Matthew 11 "Peck" and "Marc s" have made a career out of defending the forms of invasion of the musical body snatchers and others accuse those of being perverts who post data proving that the musicians were such, I have warned about for ages. I have posted some quick notes from Jesus the Christ to prove that the singers and instrument players were the perverted operatives of Dionysys the "god of the new wineskin." Dionysus was the god of the Agora or marketplace and the Jews hoped that John and Jesus were just such characters.  I know of no exception in history which does not mark religious performers as hypocrites (by Jesus) and perverted operatives of the Mother of harlots (John 17) which were the "lusted after FRUITS" John defined as sorcerers (Revelation 18).

The Ekklesia:
A school of the Bible where we SPEAK that which is written or a "theater for holy entertainment" staffed by rhetoricians, singers, musicians, organ players and all of the other hypocritic acts. The word SPEAK means the OPPOSITE of all but verbal instruction. The ekklesia has no right to initiate new

and Apollyon's replacement of MUSIC as the WASHER to replace baptism.  Question on another forum.

Reed Shaken By the Wind
When Jesus asked whether the "seekers" expected that John would be the regular charismatic prophesier, He used the idea of SHAKEN WIND and of SOFT CLOTHING.  The shaken reed was a mark of perverted dionysus worship: they PIPED hoping that Jesus and others would sing and dance. The SOFT clothing is the mark of the king's Catamite or male prostitute which also speaks of "soft" music used to arouse a younger male.  And so all of the PSALLO words speaking of PLUCKING the harp strings point to older males seducing a younger male.  This is also the message of Revelation 17-18 and identifies the worship of the perverse Mother Goddess now making a full attack.  The very late use of the word PSALLO to justify this religion has DEEPTER roots than most sowers of discord can grasp.

Mark Henderson Review One
We link Terry Rush review where we have posted proof that the sacrificial--loud noise system was imposed as a curse. Hezekiah through the Spirit Of Christ claims that they kings and priests had enslaved them and they were common grade PARASITES.
Mark Henderson Review Two
Mark Henderson Review Three

The Law of Silence repudiated.  See Jeremiah 7 as an example.  People have not trouble claiming the role of Jesus Christ as both the "receivers" of the Spirit of God and speaking forth words, but they claim the authority from silence to INVENT ceremonial legalism under the sham of "worship" and claim the authoridy to LADE the people down with burdens Jesus Himself died to remove.  Pretty dangerous.

Ex-Church of Christ on Pharisees and Instrumental Music.
Really a distortion of facts: X church of christ people have a perfect right but they do not have a right to mount a blood vendetta using what everyone knows to be a distortion of all of the facts.

This addresses the thread on Mark Henderson at Quail springs: the attack was against those who publically opposed Qual Springs decision to deliberately Sow Discord by adding instrumental music. The "proof texts" were supplied by an agent of the NACC, David Faust.  The handfull of churches of Christ diverted into the use of instrumental music have all been seduced by so called "Unity Meetings" in which the Christian Church presents their full load of "proofs" for the use of instruments. Unfortunately, all of them are lies to God and About God.  Furthermore, all of the psallo proof texts for instruments point directly to older males plucking a harp to seduce a young man.   The Ex-Church of Christ forum removed all of the clear Biblical texts in any way related to the use of instruments/  It is common fodder for the them to identify the Church of Christ as a cult: perhaps because the Restoration Movement a Baptists, Alexander Campbell, converted most of them to the Biblical view.

This blaming the discorded who had their church and family lives stolen, they have placed the blame on those who responded to intentional publicity with public repudiation: and so say all of the 13,500 congregations excepting five or six of the original plotters with the NACC.

Unfortunately, the Ex-Church of Christ moderators will not answer the question of whether it is also vile to deliberately sow discord and lie about all of the Bible and known history.

Ex-Church of Christ
could not rebut one of my proof text from the Bible, but then asks:
Regardless this still does not answer the question of why instrumental music is an important issue to God? Just because we have no accounts of Jesus worshiping with instrumental music that therefor means that instrumental music is evil?

I'm sorry but I don't follow your logic. I think you are far to caught up in apologetics and the minute legalism of a VERY SMALL issue. 
Those who impose instrumental music now claim that God COMMANDED the use of instrumental music BECAUSE they think that He commanded it for making the curse of animal sacrifices as exorcism after telling them that the kings would lead them into captivity and Death. Darron L. Steel

Then one might ask, to prove that this is not honest, would the NACC make a 25 year effort to sow discord to force unity by forcing Scriptural churches to IMPOSE musical instruments which always marked paganism and perversions.  I posted some material to prove that the use of the Old Testament use of instruments for "prophesying" was exactly what John called sorcery in Revelation 18:23 of the rhetoricians, singers and musicians who were lusted after FRUITS under the Mother of Harlots (rev 17)

We will show that the MEANING of NOMOS or legalism is the use of musical instruments to spread the laws of Apollo using the Muses or dirty adulterers.  Apollo is Abaddon or Apollon of Revelation.

It is important because music DISABLES the learning process so that by the time the preacher comes on they can't remember even the title of his sermons by the time they get homes.  The MARK is of shutting God's face: I call that important.

Their very hate-filled attack on the non-instrumentalists distorts all known history because it bleeds of those also dedicated to destroying all who will not bow to ball and use instruments.  Th

This is a common false claim of preachers who missed the Old Testament: 
Darron L. Steele Unity paper:  Acts 13, 14, 17 and 18 report Christians participating in synagogue worship, and thereby worship with musical instruments; synagogues had shofars, a type of horn.
The fact is that the synagogue began as the church in the wilderness: it included rest, reading and rehearsing the Word of God. It excluded both bocal and instrument rejoicing. That was the musical triumph over Psalm 41 prophesied that Judas would try on Jesus.

The synagogue was more organized after the Return and the sacrificial system officially ceased when the Edomites (generation of vipers) took control of the temple. The temple had been dormant for four hundred years except when the Zeus-Dionysus introduced music IN the holy places along with women and perverted 'minsiters." Most faithful Israelites had long left Jerusalem and the Jews called it HEROD'S temple and do not count it as the third temple.


We have no Biblical evidence of any INSTRUMENTS being played when Jesus and others met in the COURT YARD far removed from any holy places. They assembled there because that is where they could preach the gospel.  Secular history says that the Feast of Tabernacles was a music and talent show: Jesus refused to go to Jerusalem for these festivities.  Not surprising, the musical festival was the time and place the clergy intended to capture Jesus and murder Him. That IS the only PATTERNISM of the use of music to make war.

Alan Morrrison notes:

R.P. Martin says in his interesting book on worship in the early church that the reading and exposition of the Scriptures is "an inheritance we have received, through the early church, from the worship of Judaism, and which makes the model Christian service a Word-of-God service".

From the outset, church worship was a "Word-of-God service". The truths of the Bible were at the heart of worship. And this was also true insofar as the singing of songs was concerned.

It was the synagogues that remained after AD.70, NOT the Temple! The original purpose of the synagogue was primarily for Scripture-reading and exposition of the passages read (Lk.4:16-22; Mt.13:54; Mk.1:21-22; Jn.6:59).

There was also prayer (Mt.6:5) and, although there is no specific mention in the literature of singing in the synagogue, it is considered most likely "that those parts of the Liturgy which were connected with Temple worship, like the recitation of psalms...were sung" So long as one's idea of worship is rooted in the Temple concept, one will crave "celebrations" and big displays. The charismatic style of worship naturally arises out of this false concept of the O.T. Temple.

However, the chief element in synagogue worship -- its central factor -- was not ceremonial or display but something which was of vital importance to the shaping of the subsequent life of the local churches upon which the synagogue was so influential.

That element was the reading and exposition of Scripture. Worship in the Early Church involved "Word-of-God" services. Ralph Martin very appropriately called the reading and exposition of Scripture "the centre of gravity of the synagogue's service, with the blessings and prayers gathered around it"
THAT is what Jesus attended each Sabbath and endorsed the standing up to READ and then decently sitting down. History knows that "that there was no praise service." That was by direct command in Numbers and common decency when you hold Bible class.

I have shown that the Temple-State was abandoned to Sabazianism which harkens back to Dionysus worship. Secondly, the levitical musicians who are never said to have made music but disturbing noise, were under the king and commanders of the Army. I have shown that their prophesying was a form of madness intending to drive the enemy into panic and cowardice.  And that the Psalms outside of a record of history are connected to making war and not making worship.

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 military commanders, 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

"The Hithpa'el of nb', in the ancient texts, refers to ecstasy and delirium rather than to the emission of a 'prophecy'." (de Vaux, Roland, The Bible and the Ancient Near East, p. 243 Doubleday

"Maniac inspirations, the violent possession which threw sibyls and priestesses into contortions--the foaming lip and streaming hair and glazed or glaring eyes-- have no place in the self-controlling dignity of Christian inspiration. Even Jewish prophets, in the paroxysm of emotion, might lie naked on the ground and rave (1 Sam. xix. 24); but the genuine inspiration in Christian ages never obliterates the self-consciousness or overpowers the reason. It abhors the hysteria and stimulation and frenzy which have sometimes disgraced revivalism and filled lunatic asylums." (Pulpit Commentary, 1 Cor., p. 460).

"Many of the Psalms are expressive of the parade dance, or dance procession, in a way which show it to have been the characteristic form of the festival (Psalms 30:12, 87:7, 149:3, 150:4; Is. 30:29) and that this was where many of the Psalms were used." ( W. O. E. Osterley, The Sacred Dance (Cambridge: N. P., 1923), p. 94)

That is because David was a "king given in God's anger" and the warrior musicians were under the King and Commanders of the Army.  The NOISE is to make war and never to make worship. As for the shofar used to call the assembly:
"The Shofar is the ritual instrument of the ancient and modern Hebrews, the only Hebrew cultural instrument to have survived until now. Of martial origin, the shofar was a priestly instrument in Biblical times. According to the Mishna, two different forms of shofar were used in the Temple: one made of ibex horn, its bell ornamented with gold, was sounded at New Year and during the Yovel Days; one made of ram's horn, with silver ornamentation, was sounded on fast days."Only in Ps 150:3 is it (shophar) mentioned with most of the other really musical instruments. Hence, we must conclude that the function of the shophar was to make noise--be it of earthly or of eschatological character--but not to make music....not to make music. After the destruction of the temple and the general banishment of all instrumental music, the shophar alone survived, just because it was not a musical instrument." (Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, p. 473, Abingdon).
It is one thing to be Ex-church of Christ but it is not if you are not informed about the reason it repudiates Instrumental Music.

Because they destroyed all my good research, I will take some time to rebuild it.
