Galatians 5 Music is Witchcraft and Recrucifies Christ

This file's purpose is to post links to the rest of the Bible, lexicon, dictionaries and contemporaneous Greek and Latin literature which discusses the errors the young church is liable to fall back into.

See Jay Guin re New Wineskins Magazine on Galatains.

See Grace Centered Forum Reviews.  The Thread for The Church of Christ does not allow the posting of the Bible in context or the contemporaneous literature. There is no exception: the on history of people using musical instruments in what they call "a worship service" which intends to appease the gods or to enhance or aid the Word of Christ in the Prophets and the prophecies made more perfect by Jesus of Nazareth.

Strong Delusions produces lying wonders.

Galatians 5  "Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they [are] brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are [even] the dross of silver." {Ezk 22:18}

David had these on his staff because he was abandoned to worship the starry host. "We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'AROUSERS,' sang (every morning?) this verse from "Ps 44:23: "Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever." The Talmud tells us that John Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom." (Roland de Vaux, p. 247).

They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Eze.13:6

Diviners are still trying to "batter down the walls" with lying divination and music:

At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort. Ezekiel 21:22

+ "For rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king." {1Sm 15:23}

"So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, [even] against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking [counsel] of [one that had] a familiar spirit, to enquire [of it]; ...

2 Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that
        walk after the FLESH in the lust of uncleanness,
        and despise government. Presumptuous are they,
        selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. [i.e. Lie TO God and ABOUT God]

2 Peter 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might,
        bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute BEASTS, [Zoon, ZOE MARK]
        MADE to be taken and destroyed,

utterly perish in their own corruption;

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,
        and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come,
        God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Galatians 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law,
        that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Galatians 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God,
        ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
Galatians 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God,
        how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Galatians 4:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
Galatians 4:11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

Many of the errors within the Church are based on the Monarchy period, its sacrificial system including the loud instruments intended "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." God had turned Israel over to worship the starry host so none of the national rituals of the state apply to the Church of Christ which began in the wilderness and quarantined the godly people from the curse laid on the tribe of Levi by Jacob (Gen 49)

Galatians 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Galatians 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants;
        the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is,
        and is in bondage with her children.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Galatians 4:27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
Galatians 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture?
        Cast out the bondwoman and her son:
        for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

Gal 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
Gal 5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised,
        that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, 
        whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

To justify themselves those who impose instruments into the "school of the Word" appeal to the Monarchy period which was under their own views of the Law of Moses. 

Gal 5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision;
        but faith which worketh by love.

Gal 5:7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
Gal 5:8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
Gal 5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded:
        but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

Galatians 5:11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision,
        why do I yet suffer persecution?
        then is the offence of the cross ceased.

Galatians 5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

A. Based on the words Paul uses pointed to the emasculated priests of the mother goddess, Paul intends to CUT OFF the musical performers in the same way the priests were made eunuchs:

, a.ta gennētika, of eunuchs, Ph.1.89: abs., “apokekommenoseunuch, LXXDe.23.1, cf.Luc.Eun.8:—Med., make oneself a eunuch, Ep.Gal.5.12, cf. Arr.Epict.2.20.19.

This would apply to the musical fall from grace at Mount Sinai:  the worship of the Mother Goddess allowed males to "perform the role of women." David's stola was worn by the office of prostitute and the Ephod was a phallic symbol which David cast off and went naked.

Deuteronomy 23.1 non intrabit eunuchus adtritis vel amputatis testiculis et absciso veretro ecclesiam Domini
The folly of Israel was common throughout history. An emasculated priest served as the DOGS of Cybele the Mother of the Gods.  The Babylon mother of harlots in Revelation 17 used these "lusted after FRUITS" as speakers, singers and instrument players (Rev 18).  Paul called the SORCERERS who HAD deceived the whole world.
Deuteronomy 23.1He who is wounded in the stones, or has his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the assembly of Yahweh.

Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:
         of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past,
         that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Chrysostom's Commentary on Galatians:

Galatians 5:1.-"With freedom did Christ set us free; stand fast therefore.115 ."
Ver. 12.
"I would that they which unsettle you would even cut themselves off." And he says well "that unsettle you."
"A man that is heretical after the first and second admonition refuse." (Tit. iii: 10) If they will,
let them not only be circumcised, but mutilated.
Where then are those who dare to mutilate themselves; seeing that they draw down the Apostolic curse, and accuse the workmanship of God, and take part with the Manichees? ... But if you will not allow this,
why do you not mutilate the tongue for blasphemy, the hands for rapine, the feet for their evil courses, in short, the whole body?
For the ear enchanted by the sound of a flute hath often enervated the soul;
and the perception of a sweet perfume by the nostrils hath bewitched the mind, and made it frantic for pleasure
Catullus,Carmina 63     Notes
Thy timbrel, Mother Cybele, the firstings of thy rite,
And as her tender finger-tips on bull-back hollow rang
She rose a-grieving and her song to listening comrades sang.

"Up Gallae, hie together, haste for Cybele's deep grove,
Hie to the Dindymnean dame, ye flocks that love to rove;
The which affecting stranger steads as bound in exile's brunt
My sect pursuing led by me have nerved you to confront

The raging surge of salty sea and ocean's tyrant hand
As your hate of Venus' [ZOE] hest your
manly forms unmann'd,
Gladden your souls, ye mistresses, with sense of error bann'd.
Drive from your spirits dull delay, together follow ye
To hold of Phrygian goddess, home of Phrygian Cybebe,
Where loud the cymbal's voice resounds with timbrel-echoes blending,
And where the Phrygian piper drones grave bass from reed a-bending,

Where toss their ivy-circled heads with might the Maenades
Where ply mid shrilly lullilooes the holiest mysteries,
Where to fly here and there be wont the she-god's vaguing train,
Thither behoves us lead the dance in quick-step hasty strain."

Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty;
        only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh,
        but by love serve one another.

The Logos versus the Mythos defines the two races of mankind: In Romans 12 Paul insists that we silence or sacrifice our flesh so that our worship can be Rational or Of Truth and IN the spirit as opposed to in the flesh.

Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this;
        Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Gal 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another,
         take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 

Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh:
        and these are contrary the one to the other:
        so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

A person is governed by the LOGOS or MYTHOS: The Word or logos governes the human spirit or mind.  The human senses devoid of spirit governes the lawless stopped only by a penalty.  If people approach their view of god with external rituals they are defined as witches or sorcerers marking them 'of the world' from whom God hides Himself and Jesus does not pray.

Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

SPIRIT never speaks of A being, human or Divine.  God is Holy or WHOLLY SPIRIT which defines the "substratum" upon which God rests or lives, AS we exist on a substratum of FLESH.  Paul equated The Holy Spirit of God to The Mind of Christ (1 Cor 2).

Pneuma (g4151) pnyoo'-mah;Literally: a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze;

figuratively, a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, by implication the vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, doemon, or (divine) God, Christ's spirit, the Holy Spirit: - ghost, life, mind. Comp. 5590.

Nous (g3563) nooce; prob. from the base of 1097; the intellect, i.e. mind (divine or human; in thought, feeling, or will); by impl. meaning: - mind, understanding. Comp. 5590.

No level of "scholarship" will let a modern preacher trained in rhetoric or communication hear the Word of God: Jesus said that God HIDES Himself from the wise: the wise are the sophists meaning preachers, singers and instrument players.  Jesus will not pray for the WORLD but only those who are permitted to HEAR the Words God the Father in heaven spoke through Jesus of Nazareth to the apostles (only).  The Spirit OF Christ had defined the curriculum in great detail through the prophets.

Modern worship is "body worship" and intends to disable the spirit or mind.
Worship is defined both INCLUSIVELY and EXCLUSIVELY as Christ ordained the Qahal, synagogue or church of Christ in the wilderness.  Paul understood that worship "in spirit" is worship in the PLACE of the human spirit or mind. Those who perform hypocritic arts--preachers, singers, instrument players--have the task of PREVENTING you from worshiping IN the spirit as opposed to IN the flesh (Philippians 3)

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that
..........YE present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
..........which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1

Spiritual worship or Reasonable worship is the Word of Christ only.
So, rational or spiritual worship is EXCLUSIVE of music which disables the mind.
Rational worship is of the reason or intellect.
Spiritual worship os Opposite to "sermonizing" or "moralizing which is:

The Word of God is the only thing that can transform OUR spirit into the likeness of Christ's spirit:
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:
        but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
perfect, will of God.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the holy spirit (Our's)
Just so that NO ONE can be taken captive, Paul uses parallelism and words which have their opposite meaning:
        Dionetikos or thinking, in turn, is the Opposite of Ethikos or composed songs or sermons.

Dionetikos A. of or for thinking, intellectual,
Opposite. ēthikē, Arist.EN1103a14, etc of a play, parts which display thought, mental images,
Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1103a.14 book 2.1. Virtue being, as we have seen, of two kinds, intellectual and moral, intellectual virtue is for the most part both produced and increased by instruction, and therefore requires experience and time; whereas moral or ethical virtue is the product of habit (ethos, and has indeed derived its name, with a slight variation of form, from that word.1 1. [2] And therefore it is clear that none of the moral virtues formed is engendered in us by nature,

1 It is probable that ethos, ‘habit’ and ēthos, ‘character’ (whence ‘ethical,’ moral) are kindred words.

The Ekklesia does not make up its on subject of discussion. The ekklesia or church is commanded to "speak one to another" with "that which is written for our learning" and then discuss it.  There are no lecturers. For instance:
Plat. Meno 75d I have made my statement; if it is wrong, your business is to examine and refute it. But if, like you and me on this occasion, we were friends and chose to have a discussion together, I should have to reply in some milder tone more suited to dialectic. The more dialectical way, I suppose, is not merely to answer what is true, but also to make use of those points which the questioned person acknowledges he knows. And this is the way in which I shall now try to argue with you. Tell me, is there something you call an end? Such a thing, I mean,

Therion or the "beast" in Revelation is defined as "creating a new style of music or drama." This was always the sign of people trying to introduce new "gods."

God pronounces anathema on pseudo-prophets who speak their own words and claim that they are the words of the Spirit of Christ.

Jeremiah 23:25 I have heard what the prophets have said,
        who prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
Jeremiah 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies,
        even the prophets of the deceit of their own heart?
Jeremiah 23:27 who think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams
        which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers forgot my name for Baal.

Xen. Apol. 12 12] As for introducing ‘new divinities,’ how could I be guilty of that merely in asserting that a voice of God is made manifest to me indicating my duty? Surely those who take their omens from the cries of birds and the utterances of men form their judgments on ‘voices.’ Will any one dispute either that thunder utters its ‘voice,’ or that it is an omen of the greatest moment? Does not the very priestess who sits on the tripod at Delphi divulge the god's will through a ‘voice’?

-Tac. Ann. 2.69 Germanicus meanwhile, as he was returning from Egypt, found that all his directions to the legions and to the various cities had been repealed or reversed. This led to grievous insults on Piso, while he as savagely assailed the prince. Piso then resolved to quit Syria Soon he was detained there by the failing health of Germanicus, but when he heard of his recovery,
        while people were paying the vows they had offered for his safety,
        he went attended by his lictors,
        drove away the victims placed by the altars with all the preparations for sacrifice,
        and the festal gathering of the populace of Antioch.
Then he left for Seleucia and awaited the result of the illness which had again attacked Germanicus. The terrible intensity of the malady was increased by the belief that he had been poisoned by Piso.

And certainly there were found hidden in the floor and in the walls disinterred remains of human bodies, incantations and spells, and the name of Germanicus inscribed on leaden tablets, half-burnt cinders smeared with blood, and other horrors by which in popular belief souls are devoted so the infernal deities. Piso too was accused of sending emissaries to note curiously every unfavourable symptom of the illness.

While from the many there boomed and blared hoarse blast of the horn-trump,
And with its horrid skirl loud shrilled the barbarous bag-pipe

Plat. Theaet. 173d do not even know where the court-room is, or the senate-house, or any other public place of assembly; as for laws and decrees,
        they neither hear the debates upon them nor see them when they are published;
        and the strivings of political clubs after public offices, and meetings, and banquets,
        and revellings with chorus girls—
it never occurs to them even in their dreams to indulge in such things. And whether anyone in the city is of high or low birth, or what evil has been inherited by anyone from his ancestors, male or female, are matters to which they pay no more attention than to the number of pints in the sea, as the saying is.

[450] And though I am a follower of the Olympian Muses who love dances and the bright path of song —the full-toned chant and ravishing thrill of flutes
yet I never cared for any of those feats of skill at young men's revels, as I do now for this: [455] I am filled with wonder, O son of Zeus, at your sweet playing. But now, since you, though little, have such glorious skill, sit down, dear boy, and respect the words of your elders For now you shall have renown among the deathless gods, you and your mother also. This I will declare to you exactly: [460] by this shaft of cornel wood I will surely make you a leader renowned among the deathless gods, and fortunate, and will give you glorious gifts and will not deceive you from first to last.”...
Now, you are free to learn whatever you please; [475] but since, as it seems, your heart is so strongly set on playing the lyre, chant, and play upon it, and give yourself to merriment, taking this as a gift from me, and do you, my friend, bestow glory on me. Sing well with this clear-voiced companion in your hands; for you are skilled in good, well-ordered utterance. [480] From now on bring it confidently to the rich feast and lovely dance and glorious revel, a joy by night and by day. Whoso with wit and wisdom enquires of it cunningly, him it teaches [485] through its sound all manner of things that delight the mind, being easily played with gentle familiarities, for it abhors toilsome drudgery; but whoso in ignorance enquires of it violently, to him it chatters mere vanity and foolishness.

Ver. 12. "I would that they which unsettle you, would even cut themselves off."

"Observe how bitterly he speaks here against their deceivers.125 At the outset he directed his charge against those who were deceived, and called them foolish, once and again. Now, having sufficiently corrected and instructed them, he turns to their deceivers. And you should remark his wisdom in the manner in which he admonishes and chastens the former as his own children, and as capable of receiving correction,

but their deceivers he cuts off, as aliens and incurably depraved. And this he does, partly, when he says, "he shall bear his judgment whosoever he be;" partly when he utters the imprecation against them, "I would that they which unsettle you would even cut themselves off."

And he says well "that unsettle you."
For they had compelled them to abandon their own fatherland, their liberty,
and their heavenly kindred, and to seek an alien and foreign one;
they had cast them out of Jerusalem which is above and free,
and compelled them to wander forth as captives and emigrants.

Romans 4:12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only,
        but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham,
        which he had being yet uncircumcised.
Romans 4:13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world,
        was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law,
        but through the righteousness of faith.
Romans 4:14 For if they which are of the law be heirs,
        faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
Romans 4:15 Because the law worketh wrath:
        for where no law is, there is no transgression.

Gal 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus

If I am a seer or wise of heart, [1090] Cithaeron, you will not fail—by heaven, you will not—to know at tomorrow's full moon that Oedipus honors you as native to him, as his nurse, and his mother, and that you are celebrated in our dance and song, [1095] because you are well-pleasing to our prince. O Phoebus to whom we cry, may these things find favor in your sight!

Who was it, my son, who of the race whose years are many, that bore you in wedlock with [1100] Pan, the mountain-roaming father? Or was it a bride of Loxias that bore you? For dear to him are all the upland pastures. [1105] Or perhaps it was Cyllene's lord, or the Bacchants' god, dweller on the hill-tops, that received you, a new-born joy, from one of the nymphs of Helicon, with whom he most often sports.

Aristoph. Peace 817
Second Semi-Chorus

Such are the songs with which the Muse (Kharis) with the glorious hair [800] inspires the able poet and which enchant the assembled populace, when the spring swallow twitters beneath the foliage; but the god spare us from the chorus of Morsimus and that of Melanthius! [805] Oh! what a bitter discordancy grated upon my ears that day when the tragic chorus was directed by this same Melanthius and his brother, these two [810] Gorgons, these two Harpies, the plague of the seas, whose gluttonous bellies devour the entire race of fishes, these followers of old women, these goats with their stinking arm-pits. [815] Oh! Muse, spit upon them abundantly and keep the feast gaily with me.

819 Trygaeus enters, limping painfully, accompanied by Opora and Theoria.

Ah! it's a rough job getting to the gods! [820] my legs are as good as broken through it. To the audience. How small you were, to be sure, when seen from heaven! you had all the appearance too of being great rascals; but seen close, you look even worse.
