Experimental Theology The Future of Churches of Christ

Neither Christian Church members not Churches of Christ are represented by institutions or wannabe institutions trying to speak where the Bible repudiates. For instance all of my retired life has witnessed the word SECTARIAN as a "IMAGE" to lie, cheat and steal congregations. Godly Bible Disciples could never do that.  Scripture specificially marks those who were OF OLD and predestined to reject the LOGOS or Regulative Principle:

The Bad News for the "Progressive" Inclusives:

2Pet. 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people,
        even as there shall be false teachers among you,
        who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, 
        even denying the Lord that bought them,
        and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Paul outlawed self pleasure: Areskos or Placeo including all performing arts Jesus called hypocrites: speakers for hire (hirelings), singers or instrument players. They are the MARK of people who do not intend to speak "that which is written for our learning" and people who do not intend to obey the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle.

WHAT IS A HERETIC OR SECTARIAN? Doctors of the law, says Jesus "take away the key to knowledge" and "music means to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." It certainly seems to work among the Latest Spawn of Doctors of the Law who lack reading ability and minimal ethics: selling learning at retail is corrupting the Word because God will not let His Word be sold: the same word defines prostitutes and fish mongers.

Who infiltrated and intends to lie, cheat and steal your property and flock? No one can find anything so vile and blasphemous in the historic church commanded not to engage in "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or self-speak" when the church (ekklesia) assembled (synagogued) to Rest (school), read and rehearse the Word of God. That is the ONE PIECE PATTERN because the Lord's Supper is a teaching activity which SHOULD cause men and women to sit down and be silent.

Go to it: Scripture says that strong delusions or religious performances claimed to be from or for God is the result of STRONG DELUSIONS. The REST Jesus giveth and the progressives Taketh away.

Rick Atchley was the first one to boast that "we took our youth to hear the best "christian bands" (an oxymoron]: we taught our youth to LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT."

As a Purpose Driven Sectarians or Heretics they are INTENTIONAL DRIVEN (predestined says the text from old) in a frantic sense proven to because 'the devil knows that his KAIROS is short." Kairos is the demon son of Zeus and Khronos at just the right time.

A SECTARIAN in a remote sense is one who has the power to choose what they will do and with whom they will do and what they will do. Christian liberty gives one the power to be a sectarian.

However, in the Greek language and real examples, a heretic is one WHO CHOOSES to take your property by force.

7.16.15
Psychology among the Greeks was divided between the RATIONAL and IRRATIONAL.  Richard Beck and the "progressives" mock the historic Regulative Principle.  The Word is the Logos: the Rational or governing principle opposite to rhetoric, personal opinions, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing: all of these are defined as LEGALISTIC because of the great effort learning, practicing, presenting, being applauded and paid as a hireling.

Hermes (Kairos) of the New Hermeneutic represents the IRRATIONAL or in Paul's word  madness.  Experimenting would be called tampering and that invites God to send strong delusions.

There is ONE GOD THE FATHER and Jesus of Nazareth whom God made to be both lord and Christ. John says that those who deny all of the recorded facts and say that God is like "three men" they are an antichrist.  Too bad: MARKS are almost impossible to remove.  Contrary to the universalists Jesus was sent to seek and save lost spirits: it is called a Little Flock or the SECT that is called the WAY.  The Way is a road or PATTERN which one must walk and it is opposite to the crooked path represented by the labyrinth the WAY of the feminine and effeminate. Not surprising then that the trinitarians are locked into worshiping the Mother Goddess as in the Babyhlon Mother of Harlots who gave birth to a DAUGHTER and not a SON.

Richard Beck mixes his psychology (perhaps the irrational branch) to pronounce certainty on doctrine.  He now has his arms covered with Rublev Tatoos.

All pagan "trinities" derive from the Babylonian Triple Goddess: as in Spiritual formation. The FAMILY always consisted of impotent father, spirit [self-germinating, daughter, dove]. The Christian antithesis is that God is imaged forth in the singular Jesus of Nazareth Who has all of the power of the allways-pagan triads. Both "father" and "son" are depicted as female.



Descent.Holy.Spirit.Icon.gif
Ditto John Mark Hicks: Andrei Rublev painted the “Holy Trinity” around 1411. He was beatified by the Russian Orthodox Church as “St. Andrei” solely for the extraordinary intensity and majesty of this icon. The image embodies the essence of Trinitarian dogmaThe icon portrays the visit of the angels to Abraham in Genesis 18 but excludes Abraham and Sarah from the picture in order to focus on the dogmatic meaning of the Trinity. The three sit around a table with a chalice as the centerpiece.

Each one is also dressed in blue to represent their equality—they are divine.
The unity and diversity of the triune life is thus pictured in vivid colors.

Richard Beck: As I’ve written about before, right now there are two streams in the Churches of Christ,
        a sectarian stream
        and an ecumenical stream.


A Church of Christ teaching only the Word as a School of Christ is defined as the SECT they call the WAY.

Richard Beck: False Teachings by John Mark Hicks

Subsequent participants in the “Restoration Movement” turned the “ancient order” into a test of fellowship as the fundamental identity of the New Testament church, the distinguishing mark between the true church and apostate churches.  That was never Campbell’s intention and he would have regarded it as a subversion of the gospel itself–substituting the “ancient order” for the confession of Jesus as the Messiah as the true test of faith.


THE TRUE 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.

2. And in the second place, why should we so often have quoted and applied to apostate Christendom what the Spirit saith to saints in
        Babylon--"Come out of her, my people, that you partake not of her sins,
        and that you receive not of her plagues"--
        had we imagined that the Lord had no people beyond the pale of our communion!
Richard may just ignore the Bible: the term "postmodern" must keep a psychologist busy with all of the scholarly clients who think that evolution and the wear and tear of ones eyes on the text (an old Greek theology) means that YOU cannot read and understand a parchment Jesus may have read. So! What can we do? Well if YOU pay me for the free water of the Word then I can explain to YOU what the Spirit OF Christ would have said if He had attended ACU.

A Christian is defined as a SECTARIAN as opposed to the Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites defined as speakers, singers, instrument players and paying audience.

Acts 24:5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow,
         and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world,
        and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:
Acts 24:6 Who also hath gone about to profane the temple:
        whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.
Acts 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow,
         that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
Acts 24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy,
         so worship I the God of my fathers,
         believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
Acts 24:16 And herein do I exercise myself,
        to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.
Acts 24:17 Now after many years I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.

Acts 26:5 Which knew me from the ing,
        if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
Matt. 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
SECTARIANS WALK IN THE WAY OF JESUS: THE MODERN PHARISEE SECTARIANS ARE:

The Prototype of Babylon-Tyre Israel. Sodom not spiritual Israel. Jesus referenced Isaiah and Ezekiel to define the national Worship of the Starry Host--Abaddon The End-Time Fulfillment
For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people. Ezek 26:7

They will plunder your wealth and
    loot your merchandise;
    they will break down your walls
    and demolish your fine houses

    and throw your stones, TIMBER and rubble into the sea. Ezek 26:12

Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses,

and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying,

Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. Eze 33:30

Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
I will put an end to your noisy songs, and the music [sound] of your harps will be heard no more. Ezek 26:13

The LXX is more forceful in showing that both the music and the musicians would be silenced---



"And he shall destroy the multitude of thy musicians, and the sound of thy psalteries shall be heard no more." Ezek. 26:13 LXX
My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words,
    but they do not put them into practice.

With their mouths they express devotion (Lord, Lord as amorousness - inordinate love),

    but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain (commerce or trade or attendance). Eze 33:31
Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.   2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird
  And the voice of
harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:22
then I will bring you down with those who go    down to the pit,
   to the people of long ago
  I will make you dwell in the earth below,
as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the PIT,and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living. Ezek 26:20

Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms [maggots] cover thee.

Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise [
tŭmultus] of thy songs [carmen]  for I will not hear the melody [cantĭcum] of thy viols
Indeed, to them you are NOTHING MORE
    than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice
and [NOTHING MORE than one who]
    plays (make melody on) an instrument well,
for they hear your words
    but do not put them into practice. Eze 33
Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee;

and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee:

for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries WERE all nations deceived.

I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more:
    though thou be sought for,
    yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord God. Ezek 26:2
When all of this this comes true--

and it surely will--

then they will know that a prophet has been among them." Eze 33:33

Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
   Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

THE CHRISTIAN SECTARIANS
Acts 24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy,
         so worship I the God of my fathers,
         believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
Acts 28:22 But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect,
        we know that every where it is spoken against.

The Christian SECTARIANS can all speak the same things because the command is to "use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is  written for our learning.
homologō If we SPEAK that which is written were SPEAK is the opposite of ODE or music, we follow in the WAY of Jesus Who spoke only what God breathed (spirit) into Him.

The WAY?

There can be no ecumenical stream. History and ethics because Christ the Rock defined the pattern for the assembly (synagogue) of the church (ekklesia) in the wilderness both inclusively and exclusively.  If you cannot define OF as in the Spirit OF Christ and think that it is a he and you cannot eve define ecumenical then how are we going to tell whether were are in the pure stream or one "mudied by prelatal pride?"

Ecumenical means OF THE WORLD: Jesus doesn't pray for the WORLD.  He was not OF the World and God ordained Him to train people how to escape the World because those who obey are by definition not OF the World.  The World is the Devil's kingdom and the lost spirits are scattered around the world: that is why the only ROLE is to go preach the magic message: those who gladly receive this Word or Logos insist on being baptized.  Church is defined as an umbrella or Safe House where God translates these found spirits into a heavenly kingdom where the burden laders cannot get at them to lade burdens. Burdens in Hebrew and Greek are those sentimental or sad songs which impact the human spirit and be convinced that Jesus was lying when He paid it all and Paul said that alms only to the destitute was not a COMMAND.

Gary Holloway Ecumenical
"Our young people do not care about unity among Disciples, Christian Churches, and Churches of Christ.
They care about unity with all Christians."

That's a lie: most young people have their own agenda as Christ-freed people and do not think that speakers, singers, instrument players or those "killing" Jesus all over in a MASS have any relevance to their lives. The Disciples or Christian churches are not interested in uniting in the ecumenical or WORLD REIGN of Satan.  Christian Church members can unity their voices and participate in any Church of Christ on the face of the earth. Members of churches of Christ by genetics perhaps want nothing to do with watching and listening to people perform the worship for them--and pay them too.

THESE believe that the Word or Logos outlaws rhetoric, personal opinions, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing..
THOSE mock the idea that God has the right to Command, Example and Infer to anyone who knows the difference between a disciple and a worshiper.

THOSE are ANTI-Christian because they deny that God breathed (Spirit) and Jesus articulated only what the Father (within) Thought.

Perhaps the youth of the Disciples Sect would like to fellowship Churches of Christ.  However, the YOUTH did not begin the heresy of the Stone-Campbell movement which denounces as legalistic patternists those who continue to read, understand and follow the Word of God.

Gary Holloway Ecumenical In fact, our mission statement says World Convention exists "to provide a means of relating the global family to the whole Church of Jesus Christ."  If that is true, then why does World Convention work to connect those in the Stone-Campbell Movement worldwide?

        First, [ecumenical] is biblical. “Ecumenical” is from the Greek word oikoumena, which is used 15 times in the New Testament for “the entire inhabited world.” The most interesting passage that relates to the modern meaning is Matthew 24:14: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Matt. 24:4  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Matt. 24:5 For MANY shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Matt. 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled:
         for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Matt. 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation,
        and kingdom against kingdom:
        and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Matt. 24:8 All these are the ing of sorrows.
Matt. 24:9 Then shall THEY deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you:
        and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Matt. 24:10 And then shall many be offended,
        and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Matt. 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Matt. 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Matt. 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Matt. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
        and then shall the end come.
Matt. 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
        spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Matt. 24:22 And except those days should be shortened,
        there should no flesh be saved:
        but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Matt. 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
Matt. 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
        and shall shew great signs and wonders;
        insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Lying wonders of the strongly deluded are exactly the religious observations--to which the Kingdom does not come--consisting of rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or passing the plate.

Jesus called the FEW OUT of the World or Oikoumena or Kosmos.  The World is the kingdom of Satan and he still controls the kingdoms of the World. To keep His Disciples safe Jesus told us that the Kingdom is WITHIN us and we should NOT go out when any INSTITUTION calls us to join Satan's Wrold.

        that he should depart out of this world unto the Father,

Pind. N. 7 If someone is successful in his deeds, he casts a cause for sweet thoughts into the streams of the Muses. For those great acts of prowess dwell in deep darkness, if they lack songs, and we know of only one way to hold a mirror up to fine deeds: [15] if, by the grace of Mnemosyne with her splendid headdress, one finds a recompense for toils in glorious song. Skillful men know the wind that will come on the day after tomorrow, and they do not suffer loss through the love of gain. The rich man and the poor man alike travel together to the boundary of death. [20] And I expect that the story of Odysseus came to exceed his experiences, through the sweet songs of Homer, since there is a certain solemnity in his lies and winged artfulness, and poetic skill deceives, seducing us with stories, and the heart of the mass of men is blind.

When the freed from clergy ekklesia assembles it is called a synagogue which was commanded to PREACH the Word by Reading the Word for comfort and Doctrine.

That was EXCLUSIVE of "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" or any high-sounding speaking: Christ needed to establish a LAW for the simpletons who did not understand that they were not God nor could aid God in the slightest.

That was INCLUSIVE of Rest (from all seventh-day paganism), Reading the Word and Rehearsing so that they left having memorized a portion of Scripture.

The Godly classes were quarantined FROM the neo-Babylonian Ziggurat at Jerusalem where God hid the animal slaughter behind locked gates.

No Church often called Church of Christ ignored that one-piece pattern to which Jesus added the Lord's Supper which should silence anyone but an elder commanded to teach that which had been taught.

No one could even hallucinate that Paul's command to SPEAK (opposite to ODE) meant singing or chanting non-text before the year 373 which split the east from the west.

The Catholics never enagaged in "congregational singing" with or without the organ.
        The command is to use one mind and one mouth speaking that whisch is written for our learning.
        The Father breathed (spirit) His Mind "without metron' most often "without meter.''
        Jesus SPOKE that which can never be sing.

This is proven when the Calvinists got access to the rare cathedral which became places of entertainment by the professionals and places to sell things including bodies.  He admitted a few Psalms (only) to be set to a simple meter to be sung in unison (only)

No one tried to use God to justify their instrumental sectarianism until the year 1876 when they foolishly thought that psallo was a DIRECT COMMAND to sow discord.

A cappella (Not ACappella) was introduced into the Sistine Chapel (goat skin cape) by castrated opra singers imported by the Pope because they aroused him better than the FALSETTOS where instruments were not allowed.

SECTARIAN DISCORD can apply only to those who IMPOSE a practice not required to carry out the role the Campbells called A School of Christ.

God made Jesus both Lord and Christ to speak His Word (Logos: regulative principle) and command anyone with a ROLE to go out to seek and save LOST SPIRITS.  They are not OF the World and Jesus was not OF the World or kingdom of that Wicked One (from Cain onward).

The Son of Perdition's Judas Bag -- always attacked to aflute case -- was for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments: so you can MARK and AVOID.  The SOP has the same root meaning as PSALLO.  The Judas bag is always attached to the spotted flute case prophesied of Judas in Psalm 41.

2 Peter 1 Identifies a false teacher as one who private interprets or further expounds the prophets by Christ and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus Christ. 

2 Peter 2 identifies these destined deceivers and polluters as replacing that Word with all of the hypocritic arts and crafts.

Jesus does not pray for the WORLD and He said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists: speakers for hire, singers or instrument players.  These were brought into the Garden by Lucifer called the Singing and Harp-Playing prostitute." They are the weapons of the "lusted after fruits" as ministers of the Babylon Mother of Harlots: they are any religious craftsmen, singer, instrument players and MILLERS or grinders meaning prostitutes who corrupt the Word or sell learning at retail."

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

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

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

"Now, many a man from the false religions, which are not ashamed of criticising what is noble, will ask: how can there be a feast without carousing and overeating, without the pleasant company of hosts and guests, without quantities of unmixed wine, without richly set tables and highly stacked provisions of everything that pertains to a banquet, without pageantry and jokes,

bantering and merry-making to the accompaniment of flutes and citharas, the sound of drums and cymbals and other effeminate and frivolous music of every king,

enkindling unbridled lusts with the help of the sense of hearing. For in and through the same [pleasures] those persons openly seek their joy, for what true joy is their they do not know.

"Women and girls from the different ranks of society were proud to enter the service of the gods as singers and musicians. The understanding of this service was universal: these singers constituted the 'harem of the gods'." (End of Quasten)

The Spirit OF (a preposition) Christ defined the one-piece pattern for the Qahal, ekklesia, synagogue and Church of Christ (the Rock) as well as the FUTURE.

He defined Messiah's REST from people who Tamper with with the LOGOS both inclusively and exclusively and its FUTURE until Jesus comes again just after you hear the trumpeters of civil war.

  1. Logos Words are Opposite to rhetoric, poetry, music, playing instruments, acting, dancing, clapping, shouting, hugging and kissing.
  2. Jesus was made to be Lord and Christ and spoke the LOGOS or Regulative Principle delivered by the Breath (Spirit) of the One God the Father.
    1. Songs and Sermons experiment by taking the WORD apart, tossing most of it away and perform their own ACTS.
  3. The command is to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for doctrine and comfort from the wilderness onward without change or charge
  4. Theology is an ANTI-Christian Word because it defines the gods and goddesses worshipped by the ancients under Abaddon--Apollon USING the Locusts or Muses as dirty adultereress-SHEPHERDS.
  5. The One Spirit Being of the universe is infinite and there was NO MAN to intercede so that God sent Messiah as His Arm, Branch. 
  6. Jesus said that no man knows the Father but the Son who will let the disciples (not ceremonial worshippers) who are meek and mild BABES.
  7. Therefore, presuming to EXPERIMENT and define God' Logos by the opinions of latter day "scholars" despises the Word and the Speaker and that is defined as BLASPHEMY.
  8. It is logical that such WISE or SOPHISTS (from whom God HIDES) would mount the attack of "worship wars".
  9. Christ in Isaiah 8 says of those who do NOT Speak the Law and Prophets (concerning Messiah) THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  When the Jews rose up to PLAY in musical idolatry which produced a sexual breakdown, God says that they became a LAUGHINGSTOCK.  They were sentenced into captivity and death with no redemption beyond a very small REMNANT which had not bowed to Baal.
Jesus gifted elders as Pastor-Teachers of the flock and JOB-ONE was to eject the cunning craftsmen or SOPHISTS who are Sermon writers, singers and instrument players. That is important because contrary to Unity in Diversity Paul said THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  Only when the hypocritic mockers at feasts are cast out can we SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE. SPEAKING the TRUTH is the only "worship" concept which means to give our ATTENTION to God. This is contrary to the rise of the heretical Worship Team which says "Watch USE as we worship and then DO what we do and YOU will be worshiping God. Bless their hearts, they know that they have a SIMON degree advertized as a spiritual occupation and it may be too late to get a degree in an honest occupation. I say "honest" because performers of religious operations especially the singers-instrument players as the meaning of the Greek PARASITE.

Preacher is Kerusso is a herald and Jesus supplied the GO command, example and inference.  He is an evangelists and he never collects money on the receiving end.  Athenian law outlawed philosophers and poets because they could never resist opening the message from the King to the Field Commander and changing it to say what HE wanted it to say and collecting from the receiver. The gospel is COD and Isaiah 55 commands we LAITY not to pay for the free water of the Word and Isaiah 58 commands the speaker not to seek his own pleasure or even SPEAK HIS OWN WORDS.  God wants all of the Theologians as gadflies speaking and writing from one another to get off the backs of those Jesus died to set AT LIBERTY.  Their liberty, not the liberty of the 20/20 VISION CASTER from the Spiritual Formation Wicca Circle as a feminine-feminists hostile takeover as Christ ordained in Isaiah 3.

Richard Beck: The Future of Churches of Christ: Table and Baptism. Richard Beck and Wineskins.or speak as UNIVERSALISTS so that baptism and table seem to be the two-piece pattern to enable fellowship and define with RACA words like SECTARIAN to anyone who seems excluded from the table because they simply recite what Christ prophesied, and Jesus and the apostles commanded as necessary obedience to request so that BAPTISM NOW SAVES US and only then to receive the REMISSION OF SINS before one can "washed with water INTO the Word" or into the SCHOOL OF CHRIST.

Doctors of the Law "take away the key to knowledge" says Jesus. Theology is a collection of human imagination and denies the Word, Logos or Regulative principle.  The ekklesia liberated until the NEXT APPOINTED COMMANDED assembly or synagogue NEXT WEEK, same time and same place. The Jesus pattern was to SPEAK one HYMN and just GO OUT.

Scripture is the collective history of God trying to TEACH mankind.  Education in world history and the principle of believing in God and practicing justice is inculcated by the great EPICS which have been preserved.  There are no LYRICS in the Bible as the exclusive resource for conducting A School of the Word.  John Calvin made metrical unison singing of the Psalms-only so that is much too late for godly people to have the terrorist attack using the SECTARIAN AXE.

A Church of Christ is buillt upon or educated by the Prophets by Christ and the Apostles as eye and ear witnesses and reporters of Jesus making these prophecies more certain. Based on trying to review Richard Beck on Wineskins.org (New Winesking founding apostasy by Rubel Shelly and Mike Cope) it is clear that at University Level there is no access to beyond POP-LEXICONS and the "graduates" seem to have lost the ability to define the words of Scripture based on the time. 

BIBLE at confiscated Bible Colleges boast of replacing it with THEOLOGY: this is the MARK for avoidance because THEOLOGY is  ANTI-Christian built on Prelatial Pride: the Lucifer Principle Christ said was the "Singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden" and the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) using lusted after fruits (same as Amos 8) as Craftsmen, singers, instrument players and Brides-Bridegrooms performing the ancient Hieros Gamos, or Sacred marriage ritual from the ing earth age c. BC 4000 by the Sumerians/

Please some university offer a course on prepositional phrases so that by the Phd level people can grasp that the Spirit OF God is not another god-person able to fit inside of one's head.

The Spirit OF (a preposition) Christ defined the Church in the wilderness and more specifically both inclusively and exclusive in the Prophets including its FUTURE until Jesus returns. If people are still trying to work out God's will for Him then maybe they missed the boat and it will not turn around.  I sense that you can get all of the degrees offered by schools of theology and never have read the story line at Mount Sinai or the Prophets where Christ defines the EXACT PATTERN

CLICK BELOW SECTARIAN as a RACA word invented to slander others for their defection. It is a violent assault against people who have never thought of rhetorical or musical performance which was outlawed for the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness and never disputed until the year 1878

Click Below Richard Beck:   But starting in the 70s and 80s an increasingly ecumenical impulse began to emerge.

The Christian Church began a hostile attack upon the "sons of perdition" who would not allow singing, playing, clapping, shouting and dancing as acts of worship.  However, those called the Christian Churches were the ones who sected out of the Disciples in 1927-1971: that was about when Leroy Garret established the Stone-Campbell Movement with the intention of seducing non-instrumental churches.   You cannot REUNITE that which was never "uninioned" at any time in history:
In 1890 the first convention was called at Chattanooga to organize the state society. The only churches in the state of Tennessee were those who had already adopted the organ in their worship. The Christian Standard pumped up the news and "it is reported that the brethren in Nashville, Tennessee are desirous of entertaining our National Convention next year."

This of course was just two congregations. A survey showed that out of 2500 members in Nashville, less than one hundred wanted the society.
Lipscomb noted that among the Society people "the Bible is as popular as last year's almanac."

"The supporters of the missionary society organized the Tennessee State Missionary Convention on October 6, 1890, with one purpose in mind, as stated by J. H. Garrison. He said at that time:

"We will take Tennessee for organized mission work...within five years."

He saw the need for unquestioning loyalty. He notes that:
"But there are
other ways in which some have been disloyal to this high ideal."
We come now to the consideration of the very latest of these efforts to give visible and tangible expression to the growing unity of the Church, for the double purpose of

utilizing this unity in the service of our common Master, and of
promoting a still closer unification of the religious forces of Christendom.

This began with state branches which would grow up to a "federation movement" of the world. Garrison established a set of rules to be followed in 1905. The first meeting was to occur in 1908 and "unity" was based on the high standard of 2/3 vote of the "in" members.

"In case this plan of federation is approved by two-thirds of the proposed constituent bodies the executive committee of the National Federation of Churches and Christian Workers, which has called this conference, is requested to call the Federal Council to meet at a fitting place in December, 1908.

"Ecumenical" is redefined to mean if YOU allow us to infiltrate and confiscate your house and members then WE can be united with you.  The NACC as Rickard Beck new loyalty SECTED OUT of the Disciples of Christ and they refused to be ecumenical with any one who had the kind of organization the NACC has become. No one at ACU will respond to quoting the CONTEXT of that they twist even at the E-mail level.

That's false: the NACC was finally removed from the body count of the Disciples of Christ in 1971. That was the time when UNITY movements were launched with the agenda of forcing people to USE instruments in what they call "worship" and THEN we can be united: said the wolf to the lamb.  The NACC does not speak for Christian Church members and it is often repudiated as a place to BUY AND SELL.  Neither did the people defacto CHRISTIAN CHURCH agents speak for the masses of Churches of Christ.   Few to none of the Churches of Christ would hire any of the Church of Christ "preachers" who boast to the NACC and the Christian Standard about how they TRANSISTIONED their church into the instrumental SECT. 

Wineskins.or disfellowshipped me for refuting Richard Beck's approved article.  Ecumenical means WE WILL TAKE ANY ONE'S MONEY or SELL THEM A BOOK OF LECTURE but we will ECUMENICAL NOT with them by attending their meetings, approving of their blogs, sending them money or hiring their preacher.

David would not go ecumenical with any of the once-Christian Bible Colleges:
Psa. 51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness,
        O God, thou God of my salvation:
        and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
Psa. 51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
Psa. 51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice;
        else would I give it:
        thou delightest not in burnt offering.
Psa. 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:
        a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
If David had played his harp along with the Jacob-cursed and God-Abandoned Levites called soothsayers or sorcerers, they would have offered him up as a sacrifice.  Ecumenical or postmodern opens you up to strong delusions so that you believe and preach that the godly people UNITED with the tribe of Levi abandoned to worship the starry host including Abaddon-Apollon who is the SPIRIT leader of the muses then and now.

Ecumenical” is from the Greek word oikoumena, which is used 15 times in the New Testament for “the entire inhabited WORLD.

That's true: that is the visible-audible-merchandising-bait-and-switch of SATAN''S KINGDOM and the theologians intend to turn the School of the Word into the ECUMENICAL world of Satan.

A course in Reading the Bible would show that the WORLD is the dangerous territory of the Kosmokrator or SATAN.  Jesus doesn't PRAY for them but anyone claiming FOOD as he GOES is commanded to go, suffer and die to INVITE the Little Flock of lost spirits. Only FEW will be chosen because they recognize the CODE MESSAGE and mark themselves by wanting to be baptized.  Those who call all of the Scripture a lie by being OF the WORLD can only be fellowshipped by SEEING GODLINESS FOR FINANCIAL GAIN OR OCCUPATION. for which Christ gave no ROLE and no DOLE.
RANDY HARRIS AT NACC SAYS: Also on Wednesday morning, Randy Harris of Abilene Christian Universi y will usher us into heaven’s throne room in Revelation 4-5. As we enter this cosmic corporate worship service, we will suck in our breath,  shield our eyes and drop to our knees before a God so glorious  we can only describe Him with thunder, lightning, rainbows and jewels.  He is the reason we will be victorious.

For Bible readers these are the sounds in Revelation 14 which are a MARK to the little flock that JUDGMENT COMES SOON.  Spiritual formation and Ignatian meditations is the Worship of the Mother Goddess of Babylon (REV 17)

Richard Beck: A Robust and Distinctive Theology of Baptism
apparently these are the two-piece pattern for being touchingly magnanimous to give EVERYONE a free pass which Jesus as the NARROW gate forgot to give them.  We will post remarks later.

The enuch had a copy of Isaiah where in Chapter 1 the Spirit OF Christ defined baptism in the same terms as Jesus made more certain in several direct command including Mark 16.  There can only be one CHRISTIAN view and unless you are into Divination or spiritual reformation that view is expressed in what we call Scriptures--the Prophets and Apostles.  You don't need to believe that because Jesus does pray for the World or Cosmic world view.  And Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists: rhetoricians, singers or instrument players. That would include philosophy gleaned from the NEW REVELATIONS by postmodernists. However, if you get PAID for not teaching that which has been taught without dogma Christ said there is no LIGHT in you and you are a PARASITE: A Greek word which defined all of the craftsmen. of religionism which Jesus repudiated.

The only "spirit" person the ACU-Abilene-Kingdom claims as authority is Abaddon or Apollyon who is the king of the locusts meaning Leader of his musical worship Team. Apollo was the inventor of musical harmony: he made his bowstring twang to send forth a singing arrow into the heart of his enemies.  He used his lyre to shoot forth Love Arrows into his numerous Cohort including three males. The BEAST is defined in reading 101a as A New Style of Music and an outbreak of Satyric Drama (the Pan beast or Goat cappella fetish0

God always gives the LITTLE FLOCK a way of escape by sending strong delusions to those who TWIST the Scriptures (Prophets and Apostles) so that they believe their own lies to be damned.  Lying Wonders are religious operations claiming Gods authority of speaking for hire, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing.  LEGALISM is defined as the talent, training, rehearsing, performing, being judged and applauded and being paid as Rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors or dancers.  Jeusus calls them the WISE or Sophists and says that God HIDES from them.  They keep working REALLY HARD but when Jesus delivered His resources once for all a Theologian was right up there with a Phrenologist.theolog-os

THE INFINITE SPIRIT GOD, LOGOS OR GOVERNING PRINCIPLE IS MUCH TO INFINITE FOR INFINITESSIMAL-ITES TO "EXAMINE" AND PRONOUNCE JUDGMENT ON. 

THEOLOGY might be the Doctors of the law whom Jesus said TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE but THEOLOGY is not a word you without suffering blisters.  Legalism is UNIQUELY applied to rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors, dancers or "companions" known as PARASITES in the Agora or marketplace. They must have talent, practice, rehearse, perform, be judged, be applauded intending to get PAID.  These are called WORKS .

THE MESSAGE IS NOT A UNIVERSALIST OR ECUMENICAL GOSPEL

Acts 13:26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham,
        and whosoever among you feareth God, to YOU is the WORD of this salvation sent.
Those ordained are those who are God fearers: this was to disabuse the Jew.
The only spiritual Covenant God in Christ made to Abraham was to the Domos or Laity as opposed to the priests and levites.
The only way to become a SON of Abraham is by obedience in BAPTISM.

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said,
        Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him,
        and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him
THE ONE-PIECE PATTERN FOR A CHURCH OF CHRIST

Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers,
        because they knew him not,
        nor yet the voices of the prophets
        which are read every sabbath day,
        they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
WHY THE 'RULERS' IN HIGH PLACES ARE IGNORANT OF THE "PATTERN'

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

2 Cor 3:13 And not as Moses,
        which put a vail over his face,
        that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look
        to the end of that which is abolished:

2 Cor 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.

2 Cor 3:15 But even unto this day,
        when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

2 Cor 3:16 Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

To TURN is equated to BAPTISM
Acts 13:28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
Acts 13:29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down

The Brides and Bridegrooms engage in the Hieros Gamos: much easier once we get the girls moving with the males on the stage: John calls them along with her craftsmen, singers, instrument players SORCERERS (named after the original Babylon Mother of harlots0.

History of Religious Sex: The religion of the Goddess, wherever it was practiced throughout history, has always been sex positive. The most famous of the ancient rituals is the Hieros Gamos, or Sacred marriage ritual. Records of this ceremony have been dated as far back as early Sumerian, about 5500 years ago. In this ritual the high priestess acting as avatar of The Goddess had sex with the ruler of the country to show the Goddess's acceptance him as ruler and caretaker of her people. Here is part of the ceremony as translated from an ancient Sumerian poem.

The High Priestess, acting for Inanna, is speaking to Dumuzi the new king: the Pagan "Christ."

Ezekiel 8 defines this worship of Inanna and Tammuz: as well, it defines the assemblies in Romans 14 which Paul silences.

IF A MOTHER GODDESS (always male we are told) has led you into Spiritual Formation then the PERSONA of rhetoric, singing and playing instruments and claiming to be a priest/priestess for a god is WHY up to 2/3 of the owners show up as empty pews.

One of the most famous prophets and seers of ancient time, Teiresias, was a man who was changed into a woman and served in the temples as a priestess for seven years to gain the feminine powers of insight and DIVINATION. During this time as a woman he gave birth to a daughter before being turned back into a man. It was Teiresias who gave us the "scale of one to ten." Myth has it that Zeus and Hera once argued who had the most pleasure in sex. Zeus said it was the woman, while Hera asserted it was the man. They agreed that Teiresias should judge who was right. He did not hesitate to tell the God and Goddess, "Measured on the scale of pleasure, in the act of sex man has one measure to woman's nine." Hera became incensed by this, stating that judges, like referees in sporting events are all blind, and made Teiresias blind.

The god Hermes [Mercury, Kairos]  in order to become a god of magic went into the temple of his consort Aphrodite where he wore a woman's robes and artificial breasts. In the temple he learned all the secrets of the Goddess Aphrodite which were exclusively taught to her female priestesses.

The speculative sciences, then, are to be preferred to the other sciences, and "theology" to the other speculative sciences.

Christ the ROCK defined the Church of Christ in the wilderness both inclusively and exclusively.  Jacob had cursed Levi and told us not to attend their qahal or synagogue nor to enter into covenant with them.  Jacob prophetically told everyone to wait upon Shiloh out of Judah.  The only Spiritual Covenant made with God in Christ to Abraham was taught in the ONCE A WEEK assembly where Sabbath never meant a day of worship but REST.  Rest from "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric."  Calvin and Edershein defined that as "having no praise service." it was INCLUSIVE  of Reading and Rehearsing the word.  Paul commanded that:

SPEAK to one another with that which is written for our learning.
ODE and PSALLO in the place of the HEART or spirit which means to meditate and keep it silent.
Lexis and all Logos words are the OPPOSITE of ODE and PSALLO (like SOP) speakis of making war or making homosexual love.  In scripture and the classics it is always narrowly defined as "shooting forth hymns" or making your heart stings sing.
Jesus gifted APT elders as pastor-teachers: their aptness is shown in obeying JOB ONE to cast out the cunning craftsmen or sophists: speakers, singers, instrument players. Only then can the SYNAGOGUE devoted only to the Word is possible. They must be excluded because Paul said THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Theology as philosophy has the bad habit of trying to trump the Word which by definition is the inclusive and exclusive document for A School of Christ.  Those who do not "teach that which has been taught" and go away for a week in all religions were called PARASITES.  Experimental Theology is Purpose Driven to debunk the Christian Synagogue or School of Christ by debunking its founding documents "until the end of the World."  Maybe we need to use the word CHRISTIANISM as a Profession of selling learning at retail Paul calls Corrupting the Word.

The METHOD of theology and sermonizing (outlawed by the LOGOS) is to collect verses needed to support a thesis knowing that most buyers can be fooled most of the time. However, that is treating the Scriptures as their "rationale" for being fed with contempt, is despising the Word of the Spirit OF CHRIST and that is called blasphemy.

There can be no SELLERS and BUYERS in the Christian contract.

Gen. 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth,
        and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Richard Beck, sectarian, universalist, slanderer speaks of TWO STREAMS of Churches of Christ. Only one can be an Ekklesia-synagogue and the other is SECTARIAN or heretical as defined by Paul's warning in Romans 15.  The Spirit OF Christ defined the FUTURE of Churches of Christ in Isaiah.  Richard Beck thinks that Isaiah 53:12 debunks The historic Church of Christ (the Rock) from the wilderness onward which outlawed vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric;
Is. 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great,
        and he shall divide the spoil with the strong;
        because he hath poured out his soul unto death:
        and he was numbered with the transgressors;
        and he bare the sin of MANY,
        and made intercession for the transgressors.
Richard Beck missed the prophets as the DEFINITION of a Church of Christ:
Is. 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
        and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Is. 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:
         yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Is. 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions,
        he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
        and with his stripes we are healed.

From Clay Tablets onward there have been TWO STREAMS of religious merchants (selling learning at retail or prostitutes says Paul). The Abilene Kingdom claims to have received 'a' spirit which lets them see beyond the sacred pages and call its writer a liar.  The "personified" spirit is named Abaddon or Apollon and it appears that he-she has been unleashed with the locusts or muses (Richard Beck didn't know that)

        in regard to beauty and wisdom

                that there is an honourable
                and a shameful way of bestowing them.
        For to offer one's beauty for money to all comers is called prostitution;

        But we think it virtuous to become friendly with
              a lover who is known to be a man of honour.

        So is it with wisdom. Those who offer it to all comers for money
               are known as sophists, prostitutors of wisdom

        But we think that he who makes a friend of one whom he knows to be gifted
               by nature, and teaches him all the good he can,

               fulfils the duty of a citizen and a gentleman.

ง The Symposium. Summary of the Argument.  Aristodemus meeting Socrates smartly attired expresses his surprise at so unusual a circumstance. Socrates explains that being invited to dine with Agathon he feels bound to go “in finery to the fine”; and he presses Aristodemus, although uninvited, to accompany him. On the road Socrates, immersed in thought, lags behind, and Aristodemus arrives at Agathon's alone. Not till they are half-way through the meal does Socrates appear; and Agathon rallies him on his devotion to sophia. The proposal of Pausanias to restrict the potations, in view of yesterday's banquet, and that of Eryximachus to dismiss the flute-girl and amuse themselves by logoi, are unanimously agreed to. Then Eryximachus propounds an idea of Phaedrus, that Eros is the best possible theme for encomia, and suggests that each of the party in turn, commencing with Phaedrus, should now deliver an encomium on Eros. This suggestion is applauded by Socrates. Of the encomia the most noteworthy were the following:—

Sophia (Wisdom of the Jews) is connected with rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or other hypocritic arts and crafts which has always been real or virtual.  LEGALISM is only applied to those Worship Acts requiring a set of laws and extensive training and a certain mark or kharacter of personality.

The varying nomoi [LAWS LEGALISM]concerning Eros may be classified thus:— (1) In all Greek states except Athens the nomos is simple, either (a) approving paidiske. 

SELLING learning at wholesale is to Paul and the Greeks prostitution.  Elders who turn out to be wolves are marked by men and exercising  AUTHENTIA authority knowing that keeping people's attention on the performers and performances "make the lambs dumb before the slaugher.

The LOGOS versus the SOPHIA is identified when Jesus implied that the MEN had become CHILDREN who PIPED hoping that people would lament and dance in the sexual initiation into Dionysus or the new wineskins worship.  The clergy HOPED that John wore SOFT clothing since he was one of those public preachers.

THIS MAY BE WHY THERE IS SUCH VIOLENCE AGAINS THE LOGOS OR THE REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE.reg

Sectarian Richard Beck: As I’ve written about before, right now there are two streams in the Churches of Christ,
        a sectarian stream
        and an ecumenical stream.

A sectarian is a heretic.  In Romans 15 Paul silenced the SELF-PLEASURE.  This was rhetoric, singing, playing or acting which aroused MENTAL EXCITEMENT which silenced learning.  The direct command which cannot be changed by POSTMODERNISTS was then to 'use one mind and one mouth' to speak "that which is written for our learning" or "Scripture for our COMFORT."

Jesus said to MAKE DISCIPLES who are Christians who are students.

Richard Beck says  postmodernism says "Jesus WOULD have go make worshipers" defined by the IMPURE Threskia.

The Sectarian or Heretic made the choice of the LAMB and lifted him up to cut its throat" and then divide it into PARTS,

The singers and instruments made the lamb DUMB BEFORE the slaughter and was called the PARASITE.

Richard Becks sect invented the Psallo word in 1878 thinking that it had a musical content.
They then LIFTED everyone up with musical sounds (wichcraftt) and SECTED the godly out by saying 'get over it or get out" but you will NOT oppose us.


Richard Beck
is following the second stream of apostasy because the first stream began when the NACC or Christian Churches which began in 1927--too late for churches of Christ to have SECTED OUT--was finally REMOVED from the Disciples Census. That is the same Disciples-Christians who tried to CLAIM Churches of Christ in the first census and got their fingers caught in the anti ORGAN and SOCIETY group now use a few dupes to try to sow discord again.

Jacob cursed and God abandoned the LEVI SECT and commanded that people not attend their synagogues nor enter into covenant with them.  The Synagogue or church in the wilderness was to QUARANTINE the Godly Jews to their isolated villages. This would prevent them from being ECUMENICAL with any of the pagan Sun Worship sects including the one in Jerusalem.  This might consist of groups as small as ten families permitted to READ and REHEARSE or memorize the Word delivered by sub-group elders Exodus 18.  God preserved only 7,000 out of millions who had not bowed to Baal (instrumentally induced).

Richard Beck:  Historically, the CoC has been very sectarian, believing only those from our tribe to be the only faithful Christians in the world. Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans and everyone else were headed to hell. At its worst that’s what CoC theology represented and communicated. And that is what a lot of people have in mind to this day when they think of the Churches of Christ.

After repudiating the Restoration Pattern defined by Christ in the wilderness only preachers get to SAY and by calling churches of Christ sectarian or heretics Rickard Beck would say that they are going to hell. There is no hope but Richard lets them off the hook by being a universalist.

FIRST:
In Revelation 17 Jesus has John warn against the Babylon Mother of Harlots.
In Revelation 17 she controls and uses "Lusted after fruits" with the same meaning as Amos 8.
John identifies all of the craftsmen (parasites), singers and instrument players as SORCERERS (Spiritual formation)
Then, he says THEY WILL BE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Richard Beck promoting craftsmen, singers and instrument players ABROGATES.

In Isaiah 30 the Spirit OF Christ said that the MARKS of God driving His enemies into HELL will be the wind, string and percussion instruments.

In Ezekiel 28 Christ defines Lucifer (Zoe or Eve in latter day Feminist Theology who is now MEDIATRIX) by referring to the king of Tyre:

Richard Beck promoting craftsmen, singers and instrument players
ABROGATES.

Ezek. 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.

Lucifer was CAST AS PROFANE out of HEAVEN: the word is hChalal or hHALAL or LUCIFER.
Richard Beck promoting craftsmen, singers and instrument players REFUTES.Richard Beck promoting craftsmen, singers and instrument players REFUTES.

Is. 5:12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts:
        but they regard not the work of the LORD,
        neither consider the operation of HIS hands.
Is. 14:11 Thy
[1]  pomp is brought down to the grave,
        and the
[2] noise of thy [3] viols: the worm is spread under thee,
        and the maggots cover thee.

This was a place where the hypocritical mockers were still conscious and able to enjoy the taunts.

Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy [1] songs;
        for I will not hear the
[2] melody of thy [3] viols.

Is. 23:16 Take an [1] harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten;
        make sweet
[2] melody, [2] sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.

The only way people could have heard that was an earlier spawn out of places like ACU.  Otherwise, most people are not so expansive as to even think about what is happening in other churches. The sectarianism was and is always caused by men battling over TURF as Richard and the "progressives" are doing.  Too bad, too sad, the last ASSAULT trying to force everyone to impose instruments so we can have 'unity' has collected about 2 dozen of the INTENTIONAL DISCORDERS churches out of perhaps 14,000 congregations.

But starting in the 70s and 80s an increasingly ecumenical impulse began to emerge within the CoC, an increasing willingness to see ourselves as a particular stream flowing into the much broader river of Christianity. Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans and everyone else are our brothers and sisters in Christ. This, obviously, is the group of CoCers I identify with.

  1. The "ecumenical impulse" was spawned by the Disciples-Christians
    when they caused SECTARIAN splits within those known as "Christians" insisted on by Stone
  2. Churches of Christ were never "unioned' with the Disciples-Christians at any time in recorded history. 
  3. Stone boasted that the reformers have COME OVER TO US after the 1832 handshake. After 1832 both Stone and Campbell denied that there could be any kind of unity beyond being cordial and able to attend most religious services.
  4. After the Disciple-Christians bonded with the Millerites and decided they needed a society to "go to Jerusalem and save all of the Jews to ENABLE the return of Jesus" most cordial fellowship was not possible.
  5. The Instrumental SECTARIANS had little to no effect on the Churches of Christ.
  6. After the 1927 gradual SECTING OUT by the NACC "unity movements" began by insisting that Churches of Christ would have to CONFIRM or CONFORM to the instrument position.
  7. After the Disciples removed the NACC in 1971 the ACU etal including SOMERITES began to demand "unity" by denouncing people who have never been either organized or instrumental.

The anti-biblical and pro-instrumentalists SECTED OUT of Churches of Christ because only a handfull of churches followed them.  Richard Beck etal have created a SECTARIAN split called The Progressive Church of Christ.

The Stone-Campbell Movement is based on lying about the history of Churches of Christ which flowed out of the Reformed groups while the "Christians" flowed out of the "high church" of OKelley methodists then "Christians," the Anglican or Church of England and ultimately out of the Catholic Church.

It would not be possible to be a Citizen in the Little Flock always separated OUT of the world and agree with all of those listed groups which repudiate Churches of Christ and teach dogmas which are not Biblical.

That's false: the Stone Campbell Movement began with Leroy Garrett the mirror image of the Sommerites.

This is  a dishonest effort to connect Churches of Christ with the Christian Churches.  In 197 the Christian Churches or NACC began again their UNITY meetings meaning that we have have UNITY if you become INSTRUMENTAL SECTARIANS.  The Baby boomers spawned by the ANTI-carnal warfare draft dodgers were easy prey to the AGENTS of the NACC who vastly dimenished by SECTING OUT of the Disciples needed new fodder for the Organ and Society party: the NACC has all of the trappings of a denomination and sees itself along with the Christian Standard as the DISPENSERS of new theology.

The Stone Campbell Movement
 A long list of the work of the Accuser against godly people just because they won't sing, play, clap and dance with them. Shame.

That's a lie. A person who calls the church of Christ a CULT for repeating "BAPTISM NOW SAVES YOU"  lie about all of the connections between baptism and salvation ing by Christ in Isaiah 1.   My brother would never tell people that they can be saved by FAITH ALONG when Jesus said that those who BELIEVE or Apistos meaning to COMPLY are save and those who believe not or Apistos meaning I will NOT comply will be damned.

A Christian is a Disciple and you can be a The-O-Lyte without understanding that a disciple is a STUDENT. EVEN THEN, he missed the Great Commission which SENT OUT the only authorized agents and commanded them to teach what HE commanded to be taught.

If Richard Beck wants to be a universalists he has to REPUTIATE many facts none of which that ALL WILL BE SAVED other than the LITTLE FLOCK God sent Jesus to seek and save. They are not OF the World and Jesus does not pray for the World but ONLY those who are united in the WORDS of Christ.  Richard Beck denies the Word, Logos or regulative principle which outlaws his making a living out of his own imatination.

Luke 12:32 Fear not, LITTLE FLOCK; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Rom. 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel.
        For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?


The Kingdom does not COME with observation meaning religious rituals which means that if Richard Beck wants unity in visibal-audible "worship services" he cannot be in the invisible kingdom where worship is IN THE PLACE of the human spirit made into A holy spirit only after obeying in baptism.

A Believer is one who has OBEYED the gospel or the FORM
Rom. 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom. 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death:
        that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father,
        even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom. 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death,
        we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

Rom. 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey,
        his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
        whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom. 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin,
        but ye have obeyed from the heart that form [ANTI-TUPOS] of doctrine which was delivered you.
Rom. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.


If a Baptists says that HIS FAITH is powerful enough to save him and DENIES the clear statements of Scripture they are STILL IN THEIR SINS and are not the sons of God.

The ONLY spiritual Covenant was made with God in Christ to Abraham. God cured the tribe of LEVI which is the PATTERN for the Catholic church and all MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAMS.

Gal. 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3:27 (What I mean to say is) as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Richard Becks bonded buddies DENY that Paul was telling the truth.

We are saved by faith WHICH MEANS as many has been baptized INTO Christ have been clothed with Christ. Anyone who calls that a liar cannot wear Christ as a garment and can never come boldly before the throne of Grace.

[27] quicumque enim in Christo baptizati estis Christum induistis

Enim why because, for, for instance, namely, that is to say, I mean, in fact I. To corroborate a preceding assertion, yes indeed, yes truly, of a truth, to be sure, certainly, indeed: A. To prove or show the grounds of a preceding assertion

If the The-O-Lites which may never have been a minimal student is always going to be diverted to a phrase or clause which says what THEY want to bellieve. It MAY be that if you do not love the Truth Christ will not even LET you quote the full text

Cic. Off. 1.39 13. Again, if under stress of circumstances individuals have made any promise to the enemy, they are bound to keep their word even then.
For instance, in the First Punic War, when Regulus was taken prisoner by the Carthaginians, he was sent to Rome on parole to negotiate an exchange of prisoners;

We are SAVED BY  FAITH "For instance" we are Baptized INTO Christ.

at enim    ‘but indeed’ (on the use of enim in Plautus, see below) in dialogue is used to oppose a preceding statement of the other speaker, e.g. Most. 922 “A. vel mihi denumerato … B. at enim ne quid captioni mihi sit, si dederim tibi”. (For other examples of at enim see Seyffert in Studemund's Studien 2, p. 426 n.)

2Th. 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1Pet. 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1Pet. 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Richard Beck  Now to a second point before we can discuss the future of the CoC. The CoC has been a movement centered around church practices, about restoring a “New Testament pattern” of worship and church organization. The CoC has been less focused upon theology (historically a dirty word in our tradition) than upon ecclesiology.

First: Church or Ekklesia consists of all citizens of the Kingdom of God: they don't do dogma nor like the Catholic Cathedrals HIRE SOMEONE to keep house sll weak. The Latin uses umbrellum which is a SAFE HOUSE where Jesus hides us from door to door quacks or merchants of salvation or inventors of "ministries."

Second: When the citizens are called into assembly by the Contact Elder we are called a SYNAGOGUE. Richard Beck nor any of the for hire people knew that because God HIDES from the wise or sophists meaning speakers for hire, singers, instrument players, actors or dancers.

The ONLY time the invisible Kingdom of God gathers is to PRACTICE ONE thing: To Rest, Read and Discus the Word of God. The Lord's supper is to PREACH the Death of Jesus and for DISCIPLES that demands SILENCE to learn the Word.

ASSEMBLY IS ONLY ABOUT A SINGULAR PATTERN.  Theology is 100% human practice like phrenology and has no connection to the ONE PIECE PATTERN.

The LOGOS or WORD is defined by Scripture and not by Calvin nor Campbell as the REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE: it is opposite of rhetoric or personal opinions, singers, instrument players or actors.

Jesus called the Scribes (liars) and Pharisees, hypocrites: In Ezekiel 33 (missed that one too?) names speakers for hire, singers, instrument players or ANY audience collected by them.

Men like John Calvin and the Campbells and all "scholars" understand that Christ SECTED OUT the godly stream from the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned LEVI stream in the qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness.  They understood that Christ defined A SCHOOL OF THE WORD is groups as small as ten families (Exodus 18) which was:

EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing or high sounding rhetoric.  He needed a law to mark and avoid those who were ecumenical.
INCLUSIVE of Rest (from religion and religionists), READING and REHEARSING the Word of God

To call Churches of Christ as a group SECTARIAN is a lie and intended to sow discord. 
A Sectarian or Heretic silenced as self-pleasure in Romans 15 (missed the PATTERN?).  They lifted up the dumb lambs to CUT THEIR THROATS.
A Parasite is the religious instrument players making the lamb dumb before the slaughter.
By silencing the weak in Romans 14 it was possible to carry out the universal CENI for the assembly with no staff.
"Use one mind and one mouth" to "speak that which is written for out LEARNING" or "Scripture for Comfort: the tool of the Paraklete)

Gary Holloway Ecumenical  First of all, we are not working toward a slightly larger sectarianism, thinking that "our" churches are the only ones. Instead we are affirming our heritage of Christian unity.  Indeed, from the ing our movement thought its only reason to exist was to promote unity among all Christians.

That''s a lie and is used as psychological violence intending to silence anyone who tells them that they are ANTI-biblical and therefore ANTI-Christian since church has no other historical resource used to hobble the ORAL  TRADITIONALISTS  makes up their own scriptures by forcing the Scriptures (prophets and apostles to lie.
A Restoration of the Ancient Order of Things--No. III. by Alexander Campbell, pp. 139-142

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.

Before and after the handshake of a few preachers in 1832 Alexander Campbess denied any unity with The Stoneites and Stone denied any unity because Campbell would not join in the EXTABLISHMENTS.

But creeds of human contrivance keep up these establishments;
        nay, they are declared by some sects to be their very constitution.--
        These create, and foster, and mature that state of things which operates
        against the letter and spirit of the Saviour's prayer.
        The disciples cannot be united while these are recognized;
        and while these are not one, the world cannot be converted.
So far from being the bond of union, or the means of uniting the saints,
        they are the bones of controversy, the seeds of discord,
       the cause as well as the effect of division.
Gary Holloway Ecumenical: Secondly, much of our work consists of meetings and dialogues worldwide with Christians from other traditions. Meetings like the Global Christian Forum, Christian Churches Together in the USA, and the meeting of Secretaries of World Christian Communions.

Dialog is what the person does when we call him a PREACHER.  Dialog and meetings are for idle men who need to get an honest job.  Meetings and Dialogs INTENDS to supercede what Christ has supplied.
2Pet. 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things
        that pertain unto LIFE and GODLINESS,
        through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
        we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us,
        that he might redeem us from all iniquity,
        and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
2 Pet 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, 
        give diligence to make your calling and election sure: 

        for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

2 Pet 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly    
        into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

PETER OUTLAWS PRIVATE INTERPRETATION OR FURTHER EXPOUNDING

2 Pet 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

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 Latin -Sermo B. A language, the speech of a nation.  Sermonizing used a conversational style and not loquacious. Dialog   h๊, discourse, conversation,  6.—Of prose as opposed to poetry: “comoedia ... nisi quod pede certo Differt sermoni sermo merus,” Hor. S. 1, 4, 48:
Hor. S. 1.4.48 In the first place, I will except myself out of the number of those I would allow to be poets: for one must not call it sufficient to tag a verse: nor if any person, like me, writes in a style bordering on conversation, must you esteem him to be a poet. To him who has genius, who has a soul of a diviner cast, and a greatness of expression, give the honor of this appellation. On this acount some have raised the question, whether comedy be a poem or not; because an animated spirit and force is neither in the style, nor the subject-matter: bating that it differs from prose by a certain measure, it is mere prose.

Reading the text before any  discussion was demanded because the rhetoricians, singers and instrument players appealed

"And do we not reprobate luxury and effeminacy for their loosening and relaxation of this same element when they engender cowardice in it?" "Surely." "And flattery and illiberality when they reduce this same high-spirited element under the rule of the mob-like beast and habituate it for the sake of wealth and the unbridled lusts of the beast to endure all manner of contumely from youth up and become an ape 2 instead of a lion?

-[590c] "Yes, indeed," he said. "And why do you suppose that 'base mechanic' handicraft is a term of reproach? Shall we not say that it is solely when the best part is naturally weak in a man so that it cannot govern and control the brood of beasts within him but can only serve them and can learn nothing but the ways of flattering them?" "So it seems," he said. "Then is it not in order that such an one may have a like government with the best man that we say he ought to be the slave

And it fell out that the soul of Odysseus drew the last lot of all and came to make its choice, and, from memory of its former toils having flung away ambition, went about for a long time in quest of the life of an ordinary citizen who minded his own business,3 and with difficulty found it lying in some corner disregarded by the others,

Everyone has to have something to do: keeps them out of trouble but God didn't found any communions in the DENOMINATIONAL SENSE. The role of a local congregation is for the members of the ekklessia to assemble and synagogue to Rest, Read and Rehearse the Word or regulative principle. All priestly or Levitical type men had been abandoned by God and were called PARASITES.  Satan is the WORLD RULER in the oikoumena sense that preachers have the sole duty to go out and seek lost spirits: they will respond by wanting to be baptized so that their elder brother will park their spiritis save from all Corrupting of the Word meaning selling learning at retail or prostitution.

ONLY A LITTLE FLOCK OF LOST SPIRITS ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF CHRIST

Richard Beck: First, it is biblical. “Ecumenical” is from the Greek word oikoumena, which is used 15 times in the New Testament for “the entire inhabited world.” The most interesting passage that relates to the modern meaning is Matthew 24:14: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”


Faith never removes sin, gives one A holy spirit, washes them with water INTO the Word of School of Christ or translates their rescued-from-the-world spirit into a heavenly kingdom: it is within us so that clergy cannot get at us.

Saved or Safe by grace (which teaches) and faith (which obeys) KEEPS the saved from the Crooked or Race of Vipers--not a parable.

Acts 2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort,
        saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Only the Little Flock can be called brothers:

Col. 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse:
        Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ


Only those who have been baptized have been saved and becomes a SON of God.

Gal. 3:25 But after that FAITH is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Gal. 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3:27 For [enim what I mean is that] as many of you
        as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Gal. 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,
        there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s,
        then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.


You cannot be SAFE and translated into that SAFE PLACE so the clergy cannot get to you until you have been REGENERATED at baptism which is Christ's right to command the INSTRUMENTAL MEANS.

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
In Isaiah 1 submitting in baptism also CONDEMNES the WORLD. Sealed by the Spirit or Word in OUR spirit means that they are safe and the door is locked.

THOSE WHO CAN NEVER BE BROTHERS OR SISTERS

God HIDES from the wise or Sophists who are speakers, singers, instrument players known to be gender-conflicted and ANTI-truth or LOGOS.

Jesus doesn't pray for the WORLD: He is not OF the World and none of the Lost Spirits He was sent to rescue are OF the World.

The world will not be saved because they are the ones who  manage after one's own will and pleasure, managing to make such iniquitous profits, act collusively with the KOSMOS SATAN IS THE kosmokrator or WORLD RULER.  Afew defunct spirits are paving the way:
Jesus was sent into the  WORLD for which He does not pray to seek and save LOST SPIRITS.  When they HEAR and receive the Word they demand to be baptized. This is God's invitation to have their spirits translated into a heavenly kingdom so that the theologians cannot pick their pockets.  We are strangers and sojourners or pilgrims on an evil planet and the direct Command wast to GO OUT AND SEEK THEM.  Theologians say "Hell no! we won't go."
Matt. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Only the little flock OF TRUTH or OF FAITH believe and obey but those who do not obey this gracious invitation are the craftsmen, singers, instrument players SORCERERS trying to make the lambs dumb before the slauhter and they will be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

THE EKKLESIA CONSISTS OF ALL WHO HAVE BEEN "WASHED WITH WATER INTO THE WORD OR INTO THE SCHOOL OF CHRIST." A person who denies that Baptism comes BEFORE the remission of sins and have their spirits translated into the heavenly kingdom are NOT part of the LITTLE FLOCK God gave Jesus to come, seek and save OUT of the World for which Jesus refuses to pray

Pind. N. 7 If someone is successful in his deeds, he casts a cause for sweet thoughts into the streams of the Muses. For those great acts of prowess dwell in deep darkness, if they lack songs, and we know of only one way to hold a mirror up to fine deeds: [15] if, by the grace of Mnemosyne with her splendid headdress, one finds a recompense for toils in glorious song. Skillful men know the wind that will come on the day after tomorrow, and they do not suffer loss through the love of gain. The rich man and the poor man alike travel together to the boundary of death. [20] And I expect that the story of Odysseus came to exceed his experiences, through the sweet songs of Homer, since there is a certain solemnity in his lies and winged artfulness, and poetic skill deceives, seducing us with stories, and the heart of the mass of men is blind.

1 – In the early days of the Restoration movement,
        we shifted from theology (Restoration theology)
        to a particular set of practices that were developed
        through a particular hermeneutic (CENI).

Christ defined the CENI in Isaiah 8 and said of those who do not SPEAK the Word THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.  If God does not regulate that gives ME the right to regulate even when it usually intends to sow discord: this is the Purpose Driven Cults device for driving out the owners.

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

Matt Dabbs: Over time the practices got highlighted more and more and the theology less and less.
The glaring discrepancies caused us to question the underpinnings of our practice (the CENI hermeneutic).

THAT'S PROPHESIED FOR JUST A TIME AS THIS GREAT TRIBULATION

We Christians preach the Word by Reading the Word and let Jesus do the talking.  Theology is the collective ignorance of merchant and is ranked right up there with phrenology

Aristot. Met. 6.1026a Now all causes must be eternal, but these especially; since they are the causes of what is visible of things divine. Hence there will be three speculative philosophies: mathematics, physics, and theology— [20] since it is obvious that if the divine is present anywhere, it is present in this kind of entity; and also the most honorable science must deal with the most honorable class of subject. The speculative sciences, then, are to be preferred to the other sciences, and "theology" to the other speculative sciences. One might indeed raise the question whether the primary philosophy is universal or deals with some one genus or entity;

Alexander Campbell inherited the CENI from John Calvin who with all historic scholars inherited it from the Scriptures defined in the Prophets by Christ, made more certain by Jesus fulfiling the prophecies [only] about the Christ in the law and Prophets, taught to eye-- and ear--witnesses who left their PART.

A Church of Chrisit is built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles: latter day pop theologians build upon the law given because of musical idolatry of the Egyptian Triad.

The CENI defined that YOU have no authority to IMPOSE say instrumental music knowing that you will sow discord without Biblical authority.
The CENI of the Wineskins.org etal is that we ASSUME that God has not spoken and then we IMPOSE self-will and tell the owners to "get over it or get out." That still happens when Matt Dabb pretends that he cannot read Scripture and the WAYS words are used in texts NOT AVAILABLE to the wineskinners or the preachers without a role and without a dole unless they PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine. That COMMAND, and example is demonstrated over and over.

CENI PATTERN ONE OF DOZENS

Psa. 127:1  Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
        except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 

Wineskins.org and the new COHORT of warriors against the Word demand that THE LORD WILL NOT BUILD THE HOUSE because I have bought the SPIRITUAL gift to change definitions of words to fit OUR culture which is defined by USE.

Matt does not want a LITANY of ALL of the passages which ALWAYS have musical performances as the sorcerers device and a prelude to BURNING.
Labor is Preaching, singing, playing instruments, acting and especially GIVING HEED to the shrinking paying audience.

Jesus and Paul defines why people cannot HEAR the Word when it is PREACHED, cannot read BLACK text on BROWN paper.
Matt. 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet,
        saying, I will open my mouth in parables;
        I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. 
        [from the wise, sophists: preachers for hire, singers, instrument players]
Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets,
         which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
Eph. 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

A CHURCH IS BUILT OR EDUCATED BY THE PROPHETS AND APOSTLES WHICH DEFINES CENI AND WHY PROGRESSIVES HAVE BEEN CUT LOOSE.

CENI PATTERN TWO OF DOZENS

Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus

Soph. OT 873 Chorus
Insolence breeds the tyrant. Insolence, once vainly stuffed with wealth [875] that is not proper or good for it, when it has scaled the topmost ramparts, is hurled to a dire doom, where one's feet cannot serve to good advantage. But I pray that the god never [880] quell such rivalry as benefits the state. I will always hold the god as our protector.
Soph. OT 884 But if any man walks haughtily in deed or word, [885] with no fear of Justice, no reverence for the images of gods, may an evil doom seize him for his ill-starred pride, if he does not gain his advantage fairly, [890] or avoid unholy deeds, but seeks to lay profaning hands on sanctities. Where such things occur, what mortal shall boast any more that he can ward off the arrow of the gods from his life? [895]   No. For if such deeds are held in honor, why should we join in the sacred dance
Matt Dabbs approves of Jeff Walling wanting to DANCE WITH GOD
Wineskins.org is Jay.Guin.org and Jay wants to clear the deck and DANCE AS WORSHIP.

The Jews fell into singing, dancing, playing instruments and playing with one another. God turned them over to worship the starry host including Abbaddon or Apollyon who is the only personified SPIRIT and Leader of the muses, locusts or musical worship teams.
Heb. 12:27 And this word, Yet once more,
        signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken,
        as of things that are made,
        that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Heb. 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,
        let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb. 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire
Matt Dabbs says he cannot understand that quoting text and definitions. If you are still ALIVE the musical sounds-like in Revelation are signs of judgment just before the speakers, singers and instrument players are CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Matt Dabbs and the progressives back to Babylon UNDERSTAND Ephesians 5 to say:

SING to the audience with Limpy-wristed boylings and fat girls with what praise leader wrote as the imposed CENI for that church.
SING and make MUSIC upon a HARP an to the AUDIENCE.

SPEAK that which is written for our learning is audible and EDUCATIONAL as the one-piece pattern
ODE and PSALLO are INT THE HEART as a place which means keep it silent silly were are EDUCATING.
LEXIS and LOGOS are the opposite of ODE or PSALLO: PSALLO or SOP carries a gender-variant content of Judas Sicarri or Assassin.

The little BOX always attached to a FLUTE CASE of a drunk and perverted musical team was "for carrying the mouthpieces of a wind instrument." That is what up to two thirds of the owners when they see preachers trying to fly by waving their hands, people claiming to WORSHIP for you because you are not competent and we will do it--FOR A PRICE.

Matt Dabbs: 2 – Our CENI hermeneutic began to fall apart, opening the door for us to find more flexibility in our practices without feeling like we were undermining the particulars of our theology (see #4 for how that is now playing out).

Not according to God, The Spirit of Christ, the New Testament, historic scholars and all founders of denominations defined a true church as APOSTOLIC: that is it is founded upn ot TAUGHT by what the Apostles recorded for our LEARNING and not judging.

3 – We stopped putting ecclesiology over Christology…in other words, our  ecclesiology had to be seen through the lens of Christ rather than the other way around.

Matt wants YOU to be antisectarian and ecumenical but MATT gets nervouse when you quote TEXT instead of lawyer's brief. He will take your money and count your body but he WILL NOT even let you stand up and read a whole thought pattern or teach or preach or be a team member.

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES. His lens was Ezekiel 33 which named preachers for hire, singers and instrument players.
Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists: preachers for hire, singers and instrument players.
Jesus didn't pray for the WORLD because He nor His Disciples are OF the World.

If you cannot read BLACK text on BROWN paper says Paul then you have not been converted INTO Christ or into the SCHOOL OF CHRIST. His command was to TEACH that which is written and you don't need someone with a PEEP-STONE JOE lens to read it.

Rubel Shelly the VINTER of the New Wineskins Magazine claimed that HE had received NEW SPECTACLES to revision the Church and it AIN'T going to look anything like the historic Church.

That is a burning offense but consistent with SPIRITUAL FORMATION. Ignatius kept looking for a job and finally convinced a Pope to hire him to track down and murder any one not faithful to him.  Hitler used Ignatious as the PATTERN for the Holocaust and used Jesus as his authority to finish destroying the Jews.

People who think their own imagination is a spirit inside of them are right: Spiritus as a person is Abaddon or Apollyon. He is unleashed from Hell along with the Locusts who are the muses. They are identified as dirty adulteresses and SHEPHERDS of the flock.  Apollon is the LEADER of the 'musical worship team' then and now.

Richard Beck: 4 – The modern to post-modern shift from anti-thesis (dichotomous options of right/wrong or black/white) to synthesis (finding ways to combine or include multiple view points into a more meaningful whole).

POSTMODERNISM was a college prank and "dichotomous options of right/wrong or black/white" is an example of speech generated by a computer. Heisenburg said that you cannot know the location and direction of a SUBATOMIC PARTICLE so the location is UNCERTAIN.  He and Einstein got their best laughs out of theologians like Shelly (wineskins) who declares that because of EVOLUTION OF THE EYEBALLS and the uncertaintity that the words have not been shot away, a document Jesus held and read CAN NO LONGER have the same meaning. Therefore, you must HIRE a theologian to tell you what the letter ALPHA really means.  For a price HE etal can ignore the text, meditate like a witch and a spirit guide will channel the real meaning of Jesus Wept.

POSTMODERNISM is the strong delusion God sent men who think that only they can read the text which are acted out as speaking, singing, playing instruments or maybe Jay-Guin-Dancing and call it FROM GOD. 

All of this has reshaped our view of unity from everyone having to be in the same box of practices
        to everyone having to be followers of Jesus whose practices will have some variety in how scripture is interpreted and what ecclesiology will result.

How can you be a FOLLOWER OF JESUS, bless your heart, if you do not walk in HIS steps and speak HIS WORD or Logos or Regulative principle, OUTLAWING speaking for hire, using your own hallucininations or personal opinions, singing or playing instruments.  Jesus was led dumb to the slaughter by the MOCKING clergy all burned up.

Mark 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem;
        and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests,
        and unto the scribes [hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players];
        and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

Psa. 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
Psa. 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Is.56:11

And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. Je.15:3

Keluwb (h3619) kel-oob'; from the same as 3611; a bird-trap (as furnished with a clap-stick or treadle to spring it); hence a basket (as resembling a wicker cage): - basket, cage.

As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. Je.5:27

Keleb (h3611) keh'leb; from an unused root mean. to yelp, or else to attack; a dog; hence (by euphemism) a male prostitute: - dog.
Amos 8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.
Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

A form gallantes, as if from gallare, "to rave like a priest of Cybel้," is cited from Varro (ap. Non. p. 119Non., 5). In their wild, enthusiastic, and boisterous rites the Galli recalled the legends of the Corybantes (q.v.).
