Buff Scott Hot Air Rumbling:   Out of necessity, even the priests in the Temple “profaned the Sabbath and are guiltless[ibid.]. Our God seems to consider mercy more important than sacrifice [ibid.]. The point is that God is not so legalistic that He cannot be compassionate in extraordinary situations.

Acts 7 for readers said that God didn't command king or Temple.


God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of the Prophets: God is LITERATE and does not need another "god" to, in the words of Leonard Allen, to make the Father-Son relationship INTELLIGIBLE.  The TESTIMONY of Jesus who made the Prophecies "concerning me" more certain is called the SPIRIT of Prophecy. Jesus said my words are SPIRIT.  Here is where Buff the Reformer blasphemes because by rejecting BAPTISM cannot read BLACK TEXT on BROWN paper.

Neh. 13:17 Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them,
        What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day?
Neh. 13:18 Did not your fathers thus,
        and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city?
        yet ye bring more wrath [ORGY] upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.
Ezek. 22:8 Thou hast despised mine holy things,
        and hast profaned my sabbaths.
Ezek. 22:26 Her priests have violated my law,
        and have profaned mine holy things:
        they have put no difference between the holy and profane,
        neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean,
        and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths,
        and I am profaned among them.
Ezek. 23:38 Moreover this they have done unto me:
        ghey have defiled my sanctuary in the same day,
        and have profaned my sabbaths.


Buff Scott Claims that Grace Covers This?

The Hebrew PRAISE word means to Make Yourself Vile thinking that God could not punish the MAD or Insane.  However, PRAISE is the LUCIFER "the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."

BUFF SCOTT AND APPARENTLY THE GRACE CENTERED FORUM WHICH ACCEPTS NO OPPOSITION IS BLASPHEMING JESUS BECAUSE IT ACCUSES HIM OF ENDORSING THE CIVIL-MILITARY-CLERGY WHOM GOD ABANDONED TO WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST

Matt. 12:5 Or have ye not read in the LAW,
        how that on the sabbath days the PRIESTS in the temple
        profane the sabbath,
        and are blameless?

The Phariseess (hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players) naturally would not condemn a Jewish Priest:
g156 Aitia means a CRIME alleged or proved. CONDEMNED

Matt. 12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
Buff is not:

The Jewish accusers were ready to stone anyone who showed mercy of the Babylonian Sabbath.
However, plucking grain was enough to get Jesus murdered even though they had prof that He was the Messiah.
They said that Jesus' miracles made Him a pretend GOD.
Jesus said that you BLASPHEME because I always said that I was the SON of God and it was the FATHER which worked through Him.


Matt. 12:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
Matt. 12:7 But if ye had known what this meaneth,
        I will have mercy, and NOT sacrifice,
        ye would not have CONDEMNED the guiltless.

THE. JEWS AND NOT JESUS CALLED THE GOD-ABANDONED CLERGY BLAMELESS OR NOT CONDEMNED. POOR BUFF ALL FLUFF CANNOT TOLERATE SCRIPTURE.

GOD IMPOSED BUT NEVER COMMANDED SLAUGHTER AND THE HOLOCAUST OF GOATS OR INFANTS.

THE SERVICE WAS ABADDON OR THE WORSHIP OF THE DEVIL WHO IS THE LEADER OF THE LOCUSTS OR MUSES WHO ARE ADULTEROUS SHEPHERDESSES.

THE ONE PIECE PATTERN FOR THOSE GOD HAS NOT ABANDONED TO WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST

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

THEN AND NOW THOSE WHO CAN SHOW NO MERCY AND DEFEND SACRIFICES WHERE THE JACOB-CURSED AND GOD-ABANDONED LEVITES MADE NOISE "TO MAKE THE LAMBS DUMB BEFORE THE SLAUGHTER."

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

Is. 1:10 Hear the WORD of the LORD, ye RULERS of Sodom;
        give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. [and a progressive church near you]

Rev. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,
        which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified

Baptismal Formula - Rejects Trinity of Persons

Mere Nick and JohnB Casts people out of the Synagogue: "Whenever I've seen folks baptized what they are asked about is Jesus being the son of God.  The promise is forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit.  So, there's all three.  Folks may balk at the word "trinity"
        even though at baptism they are acknowledging it..

The Baptismal Formula is invented by the preacher trying to exercise some authority.  Disciples affirm that Jesus is the SON of God which excludes BEING God.

Also, as I've been discussing with a high school friend of facebook the creeds because of Trump not reciting it at Bush's funeral, it appears that everyone I know at church believes the Nicene Creed but will not recite it. "


John Calvin on Genesis One is in agreement with the explanations of the Nicene Creed:
"Christians, therefore, properly contend, from this testimony, that there exists a plurality of Persons (personae in the church Fathers) in the Godhead.

God summons no foreign counsellor; hence we infer that he
finds within himself something distinct; as, in truth,
his eternal
wisdom and power RESIDE WITHIN HIM
Christians, therefore, properly contend, from this testimony, that there exists a plurality of Persons (personae in the church Fathers) in the Godhead.

HE hath made the earth by his power,
HE  hath established the world by HIS wisdom,
and hath
stretched out the heaven by his understanding. Jer 51:15

When HE uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens;
and
HE causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth:
HE  maketh lightnings with rain,
and
bringeth forth the wind out of HIS treasures. Jer 51:16

ANCIENT AND MODERN "JEWS" CLAIM THAT JESUS MADE HIMSELF GOD BECAUSE OF HIS MIRACLES

John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, [at Baptism]
        and sent into the world,
        Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?


To be baptized to be saved, for the remission of sins and be added to the School of Christ one must believe that JESUS is the CHRIST the SON of the Living God. If Jesus is acknowledged only after His baptism then as He asserts He cannot BE GOD or A God: He has flesh and bones.  Jesus was not MADE TO BE either Lord or Christ until 30 years after He was born in the flesh.  An extreme form of ANTICHRIST is to say that GOD CAME IN THE FLESH.

We are all sons of Abraham and God when we are baptized.

No one in recorded history, before H. Leo Boles and Lipscomb University now totally apostate, defined the GODHEAD as three separate Centers of Consciousness (spirit): they are said to be ONE only because they are FRIENDLY.  Jesus defined the trinity as being BLASPHEMY and John identified it as ANTICHRIST.

UNKNOWN TO ANY MODERN "THEOLOGIAN" OR POSTER, GODHEAD DOES NOT MEAN A THREE-HEADED GOD BUT BEING FILLED WITH DIVINE NATURE.  DIVINITY DEFINES THOSE WHO KEEP DIVINE COMMANDS

All Pagan gods came in triads beginning with the triple goddesses. Most consisted of impotent father, mother (spirit) and little wicked son.

Sara.Barton.The.Song.of.Solomon


My pastoral impulse this week is to proclaim the message of the Song of Songs. And here’s why: We desperately need public, communal language about sex, and we have an oft-overlooked resource in the Bible.
Song of Songs is unique in several ways, one of which is the fact that it’s the only place in Scripture
where a woman’s voice leads the conversation

        (the woman speaks 61 of 117 verses).
In light of what we’ve heard lately,
it seems like a good time to let a wise woman speak
        about sexual activity that’s right and good,
        a woman who not only speaks but sings and shouts about intimate, sensual, erotic passion.


Matt. 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
        All power is given unto ME in heaven and in earth.
Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name [SINGULAR] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 
Peter and all literate readers and bible writers understood that to mean:

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,
        Repent, and be baptized every one of you
        in the NAME of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
        and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
 
Jesus, Historic Scholars and John refuted the Greeks and the Synagogue of Satan by defining TRIAS as the nature of the ONE GOD THE FATHER.
God can THINK or originate
God can BREATH (spirit can never be a person)
God can ARTICULATE His own WORDS

Jesus claimed to be the IMAGE of the Invisible and Inaudible God.
 
John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;  [The Word or Regulative Principle is the SEED]
        the FLESH profiteth nothing:  [whatever you think or speak on your own]
        the WORDS that I speak unto you,
        they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.


No one has a god inside of them always teaching people to SIN so that GRACE might abound.

Heb. 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,  [Church of Christ]
        which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all,
        and to the spirits OF just men made perfect,


Charismatic.Worship
"Outside of Yourself" is the Purpose Driving all MUSICAL groups: those who were instrumental went "all of the way" and Non Instrumental (not A Cappella) churches have been "Infiltrated and Diverted" using a Purpose Driven effort to "steal the homes of widows" by "teaching their own doctrine" for Tithes and Offerings by Flooding the Little Flock called the WAY that is called a SECT with with the historical (clay tablets) binding of Sex with Worship debunking Scripture and claiming to be guided by A spirit: they are correct the Spiritus is Apollo, Apollyon the leader of the LOCUSTS or the Graces and Muses as dirty sherphedesses.

The Trinity is defined by Leonard Allen making God ECSTATIC, Charismatic or Outside of Himself. Grace Centered Forum teaches that Jesus was NOT Christ in the Flesh but GOD IN THE FLESH That defines Antichrist.

BAPTISM is a MARK or SEAL to separate those OF the World (Kosmos, Ecumenical, Sons of the Devil].  The old creation by the Elohim was destroyed by WATER: The New Creation by Jesus Christ or the Messianic Age is RESERVED UNTO FIRE.

That kingdom does no come with observation meaning religious observations or OPERATIONS Paul calls lying wonders.

But from the further side came flitting bright-faced Iacchus
Girded by Satyr-crew and Nysa-reared Sileni
Burning with love unto thee (Ariadne!) and greeting thy presence.
Thus "Bacchus was directly called upon," he says. The Sabazian worship was Sabbatic; the names Evius, or Hevius, and Luaios are identical with Hivite and Levite. The French name Louis is the Hebrew Levi; Iacchus again is Iao or Jehovah; and Baal or Adon, like Bacchus, was a phallic god. "Who shall ascend into the hill (the high place) of the Lord?" asks the holy king David, "who shall stand in the place of his Kadushu [[Heb char]]"? (Psalms xxiv. 3). Kadesh may mean in one sense to devote, hallow, sanctify, and even to initiate or to set apart; but it also means the ministers of lascivious rites (the Venus-worship) and the true interpretation of the word Kadesh is bluntly rendered in Deuteronomy xxiii. 17; Hosea iv. 14; and Genesis xxxviii., from verses 15 to 22. The "holy" Kadeshuth of the Bible were identical as to the duties of their office with the Nautch-girls of the later Hindu pagodas. The Hebrew Kadeshim or galli lived "by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove," or bust of Venus-Astarte, says verse the seventh in the twenty-third chapter of 2 Kings.-
PAUL WARNED BOTH MALE AND FEMALE ABOUT WARTH or ORGIES
Who flocking eager to fray did rave with infuriate spirit,

"Evoe" frenzying loud, with heads at "Evoe” rolling.
Brandisht some of the maids their thyrsi [shaken reed] sheathed of spear-point,
Some snatcht limbs and joints of sturlings rended to pieces,
These girt necks and waists with writhing bodies of vipers,
Those with the gear enwombed in crates dark ORGIES ordained—
        Orgies that ears profane must vainly lust for o'er hearing
        Others with palms on high smote hurried strokes on the cymbal,
        Or from the polisht brass woke thin-toned tinkling music,
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

In ancient Greek religion, orgia (ὄργια, sing. ὄργιον, orgion) were ecstatic rites characteristic of the Greek and Hellenistic mystery religions. Unlike public religion, or the private religious practices of a household, the mysteries were open only to initiates, and were thus "secret". Some rites were held at night. Orgia were part of the Eleusinian Mysteries, the Dionysian Mysteries, and the cult of Cybele, which involved the castration of her priests in a frenzied trance. Because of their secret, nocturnal, and unscripted nature, the orgia were subject to prurient speculation and regarded with suspicion, particularly by the Romans, who attempted to suppress the Bacchanals in 186 BC. Orgia are popularly thought to have involved sex,[2] but, while sexuality and fertility were cultic concerns, the primary goal of the orgia was to achieve an ecstatic union with the divine.

Warned about in Romans 14: The Old Wineskins
The senatus consultum de Bacchanalibus ("senatorial decree concerning the Bacchanalia") is a notable Old Latin inscription[1] dating to 186 BC.[2]

The Grace Centered Approved about salvation is the early Christian Church View promoted by Buff Scott one of the earl but little-known Vicious attackers of the Historic Church of Christ. Buff promotes Barton W. Stone and the "Christians", Carl Ketcherside, Leroy Garrett etal who claims that BAPTISM was only for the JEWS but FAITH ONLY to the Gentiles.

Leroy Garrett Saved by Faith alone

Alexander Campbell said that "No relation can be changed by believing, apart from the acts to which that belief, or faith, induces us" Martin Luther said the same thing, quoted below. I will shortly add direct quotes from the Christian Baptists and the Millennial Harbinger-- with honest links -- so you can judge Leroy's rewriting of the Bible and Restoration history.
(Alexander Campbell, "Reply to James Fishback No. I," MH, July 2, 1832)

I maintain that it is the doctrine of the New Testament, 
        that God JUSTIFIES the Gentiles by faith alone,
        and that baptism has no more to do in PROCURING the remission of sins,
        or is no more the action through or by which sin is actually remitted,
        than any other work of faith is; 
        and I moreover assert, with a view of proving it beyond any reasonable doubt, by the word of God,
        that baptism is wholly misapprehended in its design and use as administered to the Gentiles,
       
when viewed as the reformers view it.

Here is the way Jesus Christ disposes of His propherty. 

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

A. Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;

PARASITES: WOMEN AND "BOYS" RULE OVER YOU AND TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE.
Eur. Hipp. 964 Are you, then, the companion of the gods, as a man beyond the common?
        Are you the chaste one, untouched by evil? [950]
        I will never be persuaded by your vauntings,
        never be so unintelligent as to impute folly to the gods.
Continue then your confident boasting,    
            take up a diet of greens and play the showman with your food,
            make Orpheus your lord and engage in mystic rites,
            holding the vaporings of many books in honor. [955]
            For you have been found out.
            To all I give the warning: avoid men like this.
            For they make you their prey with their high-holy-sounding words
            while they contrive deeds of shame....
I know that young men are no more stable than women when Aphrodite stirs their young hearts to confusion. [970] But their standing as males steads them well. And so now—but why do I wage this contest against your speech when this corpse, witness most reliable, lies near? Go forth from this land with all speed as an exile, and come no more either to god-built Athens
Note:
Theseus compares Hippolytus to the Orphics [That Thracian IMPURE Religion]], an ascetic religious sect that ate a vegetarian diet and had a reputation for hypocrisy.

Threskeia is named after Orpheus or That Thracian.  Under various names he goes back to Jubal who handled (without authority in a sexaul context) all of the musical instruments.

Gregory Nazianzen Oration xxxix

"Nor are these Thracian orgies, from which the word Worship (threskia) is said to be derived; nor rites and mysteries of Orpheus, whom the Greeks admired so much for his wisdom that they devised for him a lyre which draws all things by its music.
        Nor the tortures of Mithras which it is just that those who can endure to be initiated into such things should suffer; nor the manglings [castrating] of Osiris, [Adonis, Attis, Dionysus,]  another calamity honoured by the Egyptians; nor the ill-fortunes of Isis and the goats more venerable than the Mendesians, and the stall of Apis, the calf that luxuriated in the folly of the Memphites, nor all those honours with which they outrage the Nile, while themselves proclaiming it in song to be the Giver of fruits and corn, and the measurer of happiness by its cubits.

WALKING THE LABYRINTH AT ONCE-CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITIES Apollod.3.1.4.

[4] But angry at him for not sacrificing the bull, Poseidon made the animal savage, and contrived that Pasiphae should conceive a passion for it.1 In her love for the bull she found an accomplice in Daedalus, an architect, who had been banished from Athens for murder.2 He constructed a wooden cow on wheels, took it, hollowed it out in the inside, sewed it up in the hide of a cow which he had skinned, and set it in the meadow in which the bull used to graze. Then he introduced Pasiphae into it; and the bull came and coupled with it, as if it were a real cow. And she gave birth to Asterius, who was called the Minotaur. He had the face of a bull, but the rest of him was human;
        and Minos, in compliance with certain oracles,
        shut him up and guarded him in the Labyrinth.
        Now the Labyrinth which Daedalus constructed was a chamber “
                that with its tangled windings perplexed the outward way. ”3 T

SEEKING the BREAD of LIFE by wandering about as in a labyrinth, X.Cyr.1.3.4.

God never commanded the Sacrificial System and the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned and all participants were defined by the Greek PARASITE. Civilized Society woke up:

Plat. Laws 936c There shall be no beggar in our State; and if anyone attempts to beg, and to collect [synagogue] a livelihood by ceaseless [making Poieo meter, hymns] prayers, the market-stewards shall expel him from the market, and the Board of city-stewards from the city, and from any other district he shall be driven across the border by the country-stewards, to the end that the land may be wholly purged of such a creature. If a slave, male or female, do any injury to another man's goods,
Aristoph. Thes. 312 Chorus singing
May the gods deign to accept our vows and our prayers! [315] Oh! almighty Zeus, and thou, god with the golden lyre, who reignest on sacred Delos, and thou, oh, invincible virgin, Pallas, with the eyes of azure and the spear of gold, who protectest our illustrious city, [320] and thou, the daughter of the beautiful Leto, queen of the forests, who art adored under many names, hasten hither at my call. Come, thou mighty Poseidon, king of the Ocean, leave thy stormy whirlpools of Nereus; [325] come, goddesses of the seas, come, ye nymphs, who wander on the mountains. Let us unite our voices to the sounds of the golden lyre, [330] and may wisdom preside at the gathering of the noble matrons of Athens.


No, grandfather,” Cyrus replied to this; “
        but the road to satiety is much more simple and direct in our country than with you;
        for BREAD and MEAT  take us there;
                but you, though you make for the same goal as we,
                go wandering through many a MAZE, up and down,
                and only arrive at last at the point that we long since have reached.”
AND TEACHING EVERYONE TO SEEK LIFE BY DEBUNKING THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING.
Luke 8:9 And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
Luke 8:10 And he said,
        Unto you it is given to know the mysteries
        of the kingdom of God:
        but to others in parables;
        that seeing they might not see,
        and hearing they might not understand.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the WORD of God.


1Pet. 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.


John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
        the
SPIRIT profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I SPEAK unto you,
        they are
SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.


John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Christians and other readers escaped before a million Jews in REVOLT (believeth nots) are said to have been consumed or burned up

Is. 42:6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

Is. 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Is. 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.Is. 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Is. 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Is. 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.Is. 1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

John baptized that tiny remnant (the 120) FOR the Remission of Sins.  Then more than the 5000 were Born Again when they were baptized.

Rom. 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him?
         have reserved to myself seven thousand men,
         who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
Rom. 11:5 Even so then at this present time also 
        there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

Is. 4:4 When the Lord shall have WASHED away the filth of the daughters of Zion,
        and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof

Washed g7364.  rachats, raw-khats´; a primitive root; to lave (the whole or a part of a thing):—bathe (self), wash (self).

g7365.  rchats, rekh-ats´; (Aramaic) corresponding to 7364 (probably through the accessory idea of ministering as a servant at the bath); to attend upon:—trust.

Is. 4:5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
Is. 4:6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing [baptism] of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Renewing OF our once holy spirit NOT regeneration BY a holy spirit person.


John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
        Except a MAN be born of WATER and [born] of the SPIRIT,
        he cannot ENTER into the KINGDOM of God. [The Church]

Only the MAN (already born of Amniotic Fluid) can be REGENERATED by WATER and SPIRIT

Heb. 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
        having our HEARTS sprinkled FROM an evil conscience,  [By God]
        and our bodies washed with pure water.

g3068.   louo, loo´-o; a primary verb; to bathe (the whole person; whereas 3538 means to wet a part only, and 4150 to wash, cleanse garments exclusively): — wash.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,
        Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
        for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
       [A Regenerated human spirit or A good conscience]
Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children,
        and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Acts 2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort,
        saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation
Acts 2:47 praising God, and having favor with all the people.
        The Lord added to the CHURCH day by day
        those who were BEING saved.

John 3:6 That which is born of the FLESH is flesh;

Jesus was sent for LOST SPIRITS.  They are pilgrims and sojourners in this present evil WORLD (Kosmos, Ecumenical, Kingdom of the Devil). 

Acts 3:18 But those things,
        which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his PROPHETS,
         that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be CONVERTED,

Acts 3:20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
Acts 3:21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things,

Lost Sheep know the Voice of the Chief Shepherd.  They are in the WAY (pattern) thatis called a SECT and they can never call Jesus who commanded Baptism a liar.

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his WORD were BAPTIZED:

Buff Scott the "reformer" on Instrumental Music and Hostility toward Acappella Churches of Christ: a Grace Centered Approved Poster

From Clay tablets to the "singing and harp playing prostitute" in the garden of Eden to the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) the musicial CLERGY have been "lusted after fruits" (same as Amos 8) to Revelation 18.  They are Singers, instrument players, "grinders" or prostitutes (selling body parts) or any Craftsman or religious professional are called SORCERERS and will be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.'  That is because musical instruments or machines were always used to deceive or "Set Ambush." That is because in Ephesians 4 they are not just ignorant but are LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  Instruments making "noise" have always been imposed before lying, cheating and stealing the church houses of widows and other owners.  And they boast about it, too.


Worship.Androgyny.The.Pagan.Sexual.Ideal.

Grace Centered Magazine Affirms Buff Scott but BLOCKS out any Bible Rebuttal. Grace "hath appeared TEACHING us to deny the PAGAN Graces.  Buff is allowed to blasphemy continuously and the moderators must agree.

They act with some hostility toward those who quote Scripture or historic scholars they MISQUOTE.

Moderator Approved: Buff Scott: "I now accept within the brotherhood of God many sinners who do not believe in Christ but who worship in paganism. In any case, which doctrine of Christ is authentic? Hundreds of teachers claim to offer His teaching, including the Metropolitan Community Church (homosexual), David Koresh, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and me.

The Doctrine of Christ is the Gospel of THE kingdom.  It is revealed when God put HIS WORDS into the MOUTH of the prophets (the Spirit parable).  Jesus made Holy Scripture in the Prophets and other prophecies CONCERNING Me.  Peter and other eye-- and ear-- witnesses left us a witness not to be further expounded.  However, those who call the Spirit of Christ a LIAR by rejecting baptism do not and CANNOT have A holy spirit or A good conscience which allows one to read BLACK TEXT on BROWN PAPER (2 Corinthians 3)

The Doctrine of Christ Once Delivered to the Saints

Buff Scott As for me, I intend to reform religion by telling people to defect from the New Testament teaching of one true Christ, one true baptism, and one true church as the only way of salvation from sin. If you wish to help finance defection from this teaching of Christ, contact me. Associate Pastor Buff Scott, Mountain View Christian Church, Phoenix, AZ.

He affirmed in debate many years ago that men can be saved "without becoming born-again believers in Christ" (Scott/ Pennock debate, Truth Magazine, January-March 1959)Resource

Buff Scott Approved by Grace Center's Lee Wilson says: Acts 4:12 proves salvation without baptism

Acts 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders,
        which is become the head of the corner.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
        for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
        whereby we must be saved.

Buff's evidence to call Peter a liarh
& Acts 9:18

Acts 9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house;
        and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus,
        that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me,
        that thou mightest receive thy sight,
        and be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Acts 9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales:
        and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

Paul calls Buff Scott a Liar becauses he despises the message of Jesus which is BLASPHEMY

Acts 22:13 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me,
        Brother Saul, receive thy sight.
        And the same hour I looked up upon him.
Acts 22:14 And he said,
        The God of our fathers hath chosen thee,
        that thou shouldest know his will,
        and see that Just One,
        and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
Acts 22:15 For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast SEEN and HEARD.

SPIRIT produces WORDS. 

John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
         the flesh profiteth nothing:
         the WORDS that I speak unto you,
         they are
SPIRIT, and they are life.

The Holy Spirit who appeared to Paul was the Spirit OF Jesus.

Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
        arise,
        and be baptized,
        and wash away thy sins,
       
calling on the name of the Lord.

Which is the only way to Call on the Name for A holy spirit washed OF sin.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
        for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
        whereby we must be saved.

The same Peter Buff the DEformer thinks might be confused by teaching what Jesus commanded Him to Preach said:

1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even BAPTISM DOTH ALSO SAVE US
        (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, [Jesus baptisms]
        but the REQUEST FOR a good conscience toward God,)
        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

The Trinity marks Blasphemy and AntiChrist.

MOSES. Israel fell into Instrumental and Trinitarian and Perverted Idolatry Because they refused to hear The Book of The Covenant of Grace based on the ONLY spiritual covenant made with Abraham promised blindness and deafness until, in the words of Jacob, Shiloh Comes.

Deut. 18:15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a PROPHET from the midst of thee,
        of thy brethren
, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
Deut. 18:16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb
        in the day of the assembly,
        saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God,
        neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
Deut. 18:17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
Deut. 18:18 I will raise them up a
PROPHET from among their brethren, like unto thee,
         and will put my WORDS in his MOUTH;
         and he shall SPEAK unto them all that I shall command him.


LUKE

Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A PROPHET
        shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me;
        him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Acts 3:23 And it shall come to pass,
        that every soul, which will not hear that
PROPHET ,
        shall be destroyed from among the people.
Acts 3:24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow
        after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
Acts 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets,
        and of the covenant which God made with our fathers,
        saying unto Abraham, And in thy SEED shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus,
        sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

God sent Jesus Mic. 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah,
        yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel;
        whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Going forth is 4163, mo-tsaw-aw´; feminine of 4161; a family descent

PAUL

The Scripture said (2 Cor. 3:17), The Lord Jesus is the Spirit,
        the Trinitarian spirit said, the Lord Jesus is NOT the Spirit, but ‘ANOTHER’ person,
        the third person of their many gods is the Holy Spirit.

2Cor. 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
2Cor. 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:
2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
        for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the READING of the old testament;
        which vail is done away in Christ.

THE ONE-PIECE PATTERN FOR THE CHURCH OF CHRIST (THE ROCK) IN THE WILDERNESS

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

2Cor. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is READ, the vail is upon their heart.
2Cor. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, [Converted at Baptism]
        the vail shall be taken away.                                  [By giving US A holy spirit or A good conscience]
2Cor. 3:17 Now the Lord IS that Spirit:
        and where the Spirit OF the Lord is, there is liberty.

JESUS CONTINUES AS HOLY (wholly) SPIRIT as He says "without flesh and bones"

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate [Paraclete] with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.


When God puts his WORDS directly into the MOUTH of Jesus without the need of another god person. When Jesus has revealed all truth to the the Apostles and they, like Peter, have left us a MEMORY that WORD IS SPIRIT or the Mental Disposition and Will of the One God the Father.

John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
        the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the WORDS that I SPEAK unto you, they are
SPIRIT, and they are life.

The Word or Logos is God's Regulative Principle which OUTLAWS delivery systems such as rhetoric, singing, playing instruments.

2Cor. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
         are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
         even as by the
SPIRIT of the Lord.

Words translated SPIRIT is not and cannot define a PERSON although SPIRITUS is that of Apollo, Apollyon or Abaddon and EXPRESSED in the music of the Muses (Revelation 1) who are called SORCERERS and Prostitute-Shepherdess since they SELL their "religious experience.

1Cor. 8:3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
1Cor. 8:4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols,
        we know that an idol is nothing in the world,
        and that there is none other God but ONE.
1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
        whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us there is but
        ONE GOD [Theos], the Father, OF whom are all things, and we in him;
        and ONE Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ, BY whom are all things, and we by him.

Spirit is figurative showing how God the Father puts HIS WORDS directly into the MOUTH of Jesus.

John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself;
        but the Father which sent me,
        HE gave me a commandment,
        what I should say, and what I should speak.
John 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
        whatsoever I speak therefore,
        even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

AGAIN AND CONTRARY TO LEONARD ALLEN FATHER AND SON DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SPIRIT GOD TO MAKE THEIR RELATIONSHIP INTELLIGIBLE.

The very truth about Christ--that he is God in the Flesh, Son Saviour, and Messiah--becomes INTELLIGIBLE through the deep work of the Spirit. 

JOHN AND MANY OTHERS WROTE TO CORRECT THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN WHICH WAS UNREPENTANT JEWS and Greeks.

Iranaeus Against Heresies Book II says what all classical trinitarians believed. 

THE PAGAN FOLLY TO BE REPUDIATED:

for there is among the Greeks ONE LOGOS which is the principle that thinks,
        and ANOTHER which is the instrument by means
                of which THOUGHT is expressed);

        and [to say] that a man sometimes is at rest and silent,
        while at other times he speaks and is active.

5. But God being all Mind, and all Logos,
        both speaks exactly what He thinks,
        and thinks exactly what He speaks
.

So, again, with respect to LOGOS,
        when one attributes to him the THIRD place of production from the Father;
                on which supposition he is ignorant of His greatness;
             and thus Logos has been far separated from God.
 

JESUS:

John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying,
        For a good work we stone thee not;
        but for BLASPHEMY;
        and because that thou, being a MAN MAKEST THYSELF GOD


John 10:36 Say ye of HIM,
        whom the Father hath SANCTIFIED,
        and SENT into the world,

        Thou BLASPHEMEST ; because I said, I AM THE SON OF GOD?
John 10:37 If I do not the works of MY Father, believe me not.
Num. 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
Timothy silenced both male and female to permit DISCIPLES to learn the Truth, Word, Logos, Regulative Principle

1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
        and one mediator between God and men,
        THE MAN CHRIST JESUS


Modern Trinitarians now say that God the Father came in the FLESH and used Jesus.

1John 4:3 And every spirit that
        confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:
        and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come;
        and even now already is it in the world.

Rom. 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
        which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Rom. 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power,
         according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

Jesus of Nazareth was neither Lord Nor Christ until 30 years after HE came in the flesh

Rev. 1:5 And from Jesus Christ,
        who is the faithful witness,
        and the first begotten of the dead,
        and the prince of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

John included in C. Leonard Allen Spirit Poured out.
When SPIRIT (breath) is poured out the result is God's WORD made Audible.

The dark side of the internet is that it allows craven cowards to pour out the most vile accusations against a religious group which STILL believes that A Church of Christ is Built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles which bestows NO GRACE upon those who deliberately trash the Holy Spirit Breathed Word and claim that they are beyond Father, Son, Bible and must HEAR VOICES telling them that the Spirit OF God is the only God for the end time church.


John T. Willis key professor and prolific seller of books IGNORES Scripture.
How Jo Bass deceived the elders and the Baptists took control.

http://www.piney.com/John.T.Willis.and. ... pirit.html

"At the Highland Church of Christ, a faithful Christian woman who studied the Bible very carefully,
      TAUGHT the elders at Highland that THIS TRADITIONAL view was far from the truth of the Bible.     
        She cited numerous texts in the Bible that the Holy Spirit works in our lives 
        just as much as he did in the first century.
Slowly, but surely, the whole church listened and learned and changed our position FOR THE GOOD. "

Of Course, Jo Bass used Baptists Material and there is no hint that the ELDERS ever considered the context which produces LIES if you tamper with the Word.

THIS LED TO THE HIGHLAND DEFECTION AND THE NON-INSTITUTIONAL SPLIT NOW CONSUMING THE HISTORIC CHURCHES OF CHRIST.  Let Paul in Ephesians 4 mark them as 'LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE." That is because not even a casual Disciple and Student could be in error through ignorance.  The Baptist Hostile Takeover.

Jo Bass Resource: G.E.Jones.Spiritual.Understanding.E.R.Harper.html


Cowardice is a trait wherein fear and excessive self-concern override doing or saying what is right, good, and of help to others or oneself in a time of need—it is the opposite of courage. As a label, "cowardice" indicates a failure of character in the face of a challenge. One who succumbs to cowardice is known as a coward

Example by those hidden behind masks: "ALONG with the Babel of bibles that begun to flood this world to feed those CULTS."
Black Ball those using Scripture and REAL history to debate.

NONE of the "university level" theologians have real deep knowledge NOR the need since their goal is to BETRAY the mothers and fathers of their tribe.

Rubel Shelly provided the Aztec about a "jubilee" where they infiltrated another tribe and when the harvest was ready they INVADED with plenty of secret members They gradually introduces "acts" which sow division knowing that you have to make everyone HATE their godly ancestor's churches before they and harvest the crop they planted.

Grace Centered Forum feature one poster who attacks the ACAPPELLA CHURCHES OF CHRIST. He means those who understand that

1. A Church or Assembly of Christ is built upon the Prophets and Apostles.
2 A Church of Christ will, by definition, know that there is not a single verse of Scripture which is lyrical or written for the lyre.
3. The Commands are to SPEAK that which is written for our learning: LEARNING eliminates anything TUNFUL which is the "Laded Burden" Jesus died to cast out.
3.  Not even among those dominated by the Jacob-Cursed and God-Abandoned Levites whom God turned over to worship the Starry host including Abaddon ever sang anything tuneful with or without instruments.

THE PATTERN of DEFINED COWARDICE promoted by:

Rick.Atchley.Leave.Movement.gif

MUSIC imposed by Lucifer the Singing and Harp-Playing prostitute in the Garden of Eden proves its power to DECEIVE a whole university-level people that the PATTERN of the HOLOCAUST of goats and INFANTS was commanded for an Assembly of Christ which is defined as a School only.

"Enchantment: Gurney describes the Hittite worship and shows that the rituals were almost identical to the Canaanite and Hebrew worship. One of the features of 'sympathetic' magic among the Hittites was the "Old Woman" or "wise woman" which may mean "midwife." Other scholars note that early musicians acted as midwives between a worshipper and their god. Gurney notes that "thirteen such women are known, but they function as sorceresses in countless rituals." Of the sorceresses who performed magic through the incantation of what we would call a poem or song, the "author" are 3 midwives, 1 doctor, 1 prostitute, and 2 temple singers." (Enoch Book 1: Watchers)

Inanna Gifts of Me - Genun Jubal Parallel

AND: Courtship.of.Inanna.and.Dumuzi.html

Inanna placed the shugurra, the crown of the steppe, on her head.
She went to the sheepfold, to the shepard.
She leaned back against the apple tree.
When she leaned against the apple tree,
..........her vulva was wonderous to behold.
..........Rejoicing at her wounderous vulva,
..........the young woman Inanna applauded herself.
She said:

"I, the Queen of Heaven, shall visit the God of Wisdom.
I shall go to Abzu, the sacred place in Eridu.
I shall honor Enki, the God of Wisdom in Eridu.
I shall utter a prayer to Enki at the deep sweet waters."
..........(Enki or Ea was the patron god of music and more)
"Come, my sukkal,
The young woman is about to enter the Abzu
When Inanna enters the holy shrine
Give her butter cake to eat.
Pour cold water to refresh her heart.
..........Offer her beer before the statue of the lion.
..........Treat her like an equal.
..........Greet Inanna (Ishtar) at the holy table, the table of heaven
 
Enki, swaying with drink, toasted Inanna:
 
"In the name of my power! In the name of my holy shrine!
To my daughter Inanna I shall give
..........The high priesthood! Godship!
..........The noble, enduring crown! The throne of kingship!"
 
Inanna replied:
"I take them!"
 
Enki raised his cup and toasted Inanna a second time:
"In the name of my power! In the name of my holy shrine!
To my daughter Inanna I shall give Truth!
..........Descent into the underworld!
..........Ascent from the underworld!
..........The art of lovemaking!
..........The art of kissing the phallus!"

Sarah Barton makes the public joke about asking her husband to come home and plow her garden.  laughing, laughint.

Inanna spoke:
         “What I tell you
    Let the singer weave into song.
    What I tell you,
    Let it flow from ear to mouth,
    Let it pass from old to young:     My vulva, the horn,
    The Boat of Heaven,
    Is full of eagerness like the young moon.
    My untilled land lies fallow.
    As for me, Inanna,
    Who will plow my vulva?
    Who will plow my high field?
    Who will plow my wet ground?
    As for me, the young woman,
    Who will plow my vulva?
    Who will station the ox there?
    Who will plow my vulva?”

Dumuzi [Pagan "Son"]replied:
         “Great Lady, the king will plow your vulva?
         I, Dumuzi the King, will plow your vulva.”

Inanna:
         “Then plow my vulva, man of my heart!
           Plow my vulva!”

THE PROGRESSIVE CHURCH OF CHRIST

Sara.Barton.The.Song.of.Solomon

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

CHURCHES ARE BUILT AS WOMBS AND ONCE UPON A TIME YOU HAD TO STROKE IT TO ENTER HER.

Luc. Ind. 1 Let me tell you a story of what happened once at Delphi. A native of Tarentum,
        Evangelus by name, a person of some note in his own city,
        conceived the ambition of winning a prize in the Pythian Games.
        Well, he saw at once that the athletic contests were quite out of the question;
        he had neither the strength nor the agility required.
A musical victory, on the other hand, would be an easy matter;
        so at least he was persuaded by his vile parasites,
        who used to burst into a roar of applause the moment he touched the strings of his lyre. 


Unfortunately he believed the even present idea that musical instruments were homes of the gods and they would make certain that he gave a good performance.  Unfortunately, nothing has changed and the Musical Worship Team disgusts half of the OWNERS and they flee Babylon.  Nero decided that because he had authority his singing and playing would please everyone.

I have also an old Lesbian story which is very much to the point. It is said that after Orpheus had been torn to pieces by the Thracian women,
        his head and his lyre were carried down the Hebrus into the sea;
        the head, it seems, floated down upon the lyre,
        singing Orpheus's dirge as it went,
        while the winds blew an accompaniment upon the strings.
In this manner they reached the coast of Lesbos; the head was then taken up and buried on the site of the present temple of Bacchus, and the lyre was long preserved as a relic in the temple of Apollon.

Later on, however, Neanthus, son of the tyrant Pittacus,
        hearing how the lyre had charmed beasts and trees and stones,
        and how after Orpheus's destruction it had played of its own accord,
        conceived a violent fancy for the instrument,
        and by means of a considerable bribe
        prevailed upon the priest to give him the genuine lyre,
        and replace it with one of similar appearance.
Not thinking it advisable to display his acquisition in the city in broad daylight, he waited till night, and then, putting it under his cloak, walked off into the outskirts; and there this youth, who had not a note of music in him, produced his instrument and began jangling on the strings, expecting such divine strains to issue therefrom as would subdue all souls, and prove him the fortunate heir to Orpheus's power. He went on till a number of dogs collected at the sound and tore him limb from limb; thus far, at least, his fate resembled that of Orpheus, though his power of attraction extended only to hostile dogs. [Catamites] It was abundantly proved that the charm lay not in the lyre, but solely in those peculiar gifts of song and music that had been bestowed upon Orpheus by his mother; as to the lyre, it was just like other lyres.

    made effeminate by its attendance on holy altars,
    kept crying out in a most ferocious manner that both these men

RB Wrote (real name hidden) Controller for Lee Wilson: I have read thousands of pages of works by the faithful since Augustine of Hippo,

Jesus as Holy Spirit refutes RB:

Rev. 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

RB LIED ABOUT AUGUSTINE Who lied about infants.

But the sacrament of baptism is undoubtedly the sacrament of regenation: Wherefore, as the man who has never lived cannot die, and he who has never died cannot rise again, so he who has never been born cannot be born again. From which the conclusion arises, that no one who has not been born could possibly have been born again in his father.
        Born again, however, a man must be, after he has been born; because, ‘Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God’ Even an infant, therefore, must be imbued with the sacrament of regeneration, lest without it his would be an unhappy exit out of this life; and this baptism is not administered except for the remission of sins. And so much does Christ show us in this very passage; for when asked, How could such things be? He reminded His questioner of what Moses did when he lifted up the serpent. Inasmuch, then, as infants are by the sacrament of baptism conformed to the death of Christ, it must be admitted that they are also freed from the serpent’s poisonous bite, unless we willfully wander from the rule of the Christian faith. This bite, however, they did not receive in their own actual life, but in him on whom the wound was primarily inflicted.”(On Forgiveness of Sin, and Baptism, 43:27)

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

RB [Name hidden from view]     

  and the doctrine of baptism as an act of OBEDIENCE and the forgiveness of sin
        started in and around 1811,12 especially so by the CoC as we know it today.

The Gospel mean to TEACH, Baptize those who did not DESPISE GOD'S AUTHORITY and only then are people able to read BLACK text on BROWN paper (2 Corinthians 3)

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, GO ye into all the world, and PREACH the GOSPEL to every creature.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth AND is baptized shall be saved;

THAT DEFINES HOW ONE IS SAVED. Romans 6 says that those who OBEYED in baptism were THEN free from sin and able to serve God and OBEY Jesus Christ.

Believeth is PISTIS which includes trusting and COMPLYING.

However,
but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Believeth NOT is APISTOS which marks one as a TRAITOR and it is not possible for them to be baptized in WATER: John said that they, being of the Viper race, will be baptized with spirit or WIND and  be winnowed and BURNED UP WITH FIRE.

Rom. 10:16 But they have not all OBEYED the gospel.
        For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath BELIEVED our report?

Grace-Centered is built on the intention of DISOBEYING the olden Bible and claiming that GRACE will save the speakers, singers, instrument players, SORCERERS from being cast alive into the lake of fire.

Jesus reveals the Father to a small group of LOST SPIRITS: They are in the WORLD but not OF the World.  Jesus said that He and his disciples were from ABOVE but from beneith or TARTAROS.  The lost sheep will hear the voice of Jesus who ONLY reveals the Father and the MARK or SEAL is baptism.

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his WORD were BAPTIZED:
         and the same day there were ADDED unto them about three thousand souls.

Too bad RB and Grace Centered people. Here are your Triple Goddesses to worship:

3.Graces.Ugliness.gif

Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people.
        And the Lord added to the church daily such as "were" saved.

RB and the GRACE-CENTERED as opposed to Jesus-Word hate authority: I hear that it is an unresolved conflict with one's mother still DOMINATING.

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?

RB and the GRACE-CENTERED  Wrong about reading and wrong about Augustine although infant baptism was in effect

Water Baptism and the forgiveness of sins in Acts 2:38
R. Bruce Compton
*

Baptism into Christ, when received in faith, effects forgiveness of sin, bestows the Holy Spirit, and unites the believer to Christ’s Mystical  Body.”9 Similarly, Alexander Campbell, a representative of the baptismal regenerationist group, argues, “To every believer...[water] baptism is a formal and personal remission, or purgation of sins. The believer never has his sins formally washed away or remitted until he is baptized.”10

9NCE, 3rd ed., s.v. “Baptism (in the Bible),” by H. Mueller, 2:54. Note along with this the Council of Trent, session 7, canon 5 (On Baptism), “If any one saith, that bap- tism is free, that is, not necessary unto salvation: let him be anathema” (Schaff, Creeds, 2:123). Mueller’s statement is similar to what is found in the Longer Catechism of the Eastern Church, article 10, question 288, “What is Baptism? Baptism is a Sacrament, in which a man who believes, having his body thrice plunged in water...is born again of the Holy Ghost to a life spiritual and holy (Schaff, Creeds, 2:491). See also NCE, 3rd ed., s.v. “Baptism (Theology of),” by T. De Ferrari, 2:62–68; and the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, s.v. “Orthodox Church,” pp. 1197–99.

RB and the GRACE-CENTERED  The 1800's produce this world's largest SECT of false doctrines beginning with the CoC, [CHURCH OF CHRIST] to the Mormons, SDA, Jehovah Witnesses, Christian Science and at the tail end the Pentecostal movement...

GRACE CENTERED CAST YOU OUT OF THEIR SYNAGOGUE BECAUSE YOU QUESTION OTHER PEOPLE'S SALVATION. THAT IS A LIE BUT THEY THINK THAT QUOTING SCRIPTURE IS CONDENMING PEOPLE.

If you just read RB's quotation you will grasp that this forum is PURPOSE DRIVEN to spread hate.

RB and the GRACE-CENTERED  ALONG with the Babel of bibles that begun to flood this world to feed those CULTS. As I have said, so say I again, that period of time was the beginning of the GREAT tribulation period prophesied by Daniel, Christ, Paul and last of all John I'm fully convinced.

RB cannot find a Bible that does not prove that Baptism is the COMMAND of Jesus as the only way to enlist in His School of the Word.

  “so that your sins will be forgiven” (TEV).
  “so that your sins may be forgiven’ (NRSV).
  “for the remission of sins” (KJV, NKJV).
  “for the forgiveness of your sins” (NAB, NASB, NJB, RSV, NIV).

RB and the GRACE-CENTERED  What saith thou? 

P.S. That does NOT mean that I believe that EVERY PERSON that is part of the CoC are not God's children, or of the Pentecostal movement or SDA, for without question God has his children in there just deceived. I cannot say the same concerning the others because of them denying some very important doctrinal truths

RB the believes that MOST people in Churches of Christ are NOT God's Children.  He is living proof that some Church of Christ quit feeding his face because of his disdain for the Word and Authority.

THE GRACELESS COMMENT HAS READ NOTHING.

INDEX OF HISTORICAL SUPPORT FOR BAPTISM

Here is what Got Lee and Grace Centered so upset:

Is. 1:16  Wash [BAPTIZE] you, make you clean;
        put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Is. 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Is. 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:  [Muted by Grace Centered Magazine]
          though your sins be as scarlet,
          they shall be as white as snow;
          though they be red like crimson,
           they shall be as wool.
Is. 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Is. 1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, I
         ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.


WHICH WAS CERTIFIED BY JESUS:

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
        and preach the GOSPEL to every creature.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
         but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Believeth not is Apistos meaning: I Rebel and refuse to be baptized or WASHED.


Rom. 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

JESUS DECREED THAT BAPTISM IS THE ONLY WAY TO CALL ON HIS NAME

PAUL Refuting the Grace Centered PATTERN.

Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
        arise, and be baptized,
        and wash away thy sins,
        calling on the name of the Lord.

Peter refuting the PATTERN.

1Pet. 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient,
        when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,
        while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us
        (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
        but the REQUEST FOR a good conscience toward God,)
        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
1Pet. 3:22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God;
        angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.


Rom. 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
        and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
        and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom. 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
        as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of
        Them that preach the gospel of peace,
        and bring glad tidings of good things!
        Rom. 10:16 But they have not all OBEYED the gospel. 
                For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath BELIEVED our report?

The eunuch heard the gospel preached WANTED TO BE BAPTIZED.

Rom. 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not;
        I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
Rom. 10:21 But to Israel he saith,
        All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a DISOBEDIENT and gainsaying people.


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 [CHURCH OF CHRIST]
          and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

SPEAKING OF GRACE CENTERED WHICH SILENCES JESUS AS GRACE-PERSONIFIED AS HE IS WORD AND LIGHT PERSONIFIED JESUS SAID:

Matt. 13:15 For this people’s heart is WAXED gross,
        and their ears are dull of hearing,
        and their eyes they have closed; [Grace-Centered and RB Anonymous]
        LEST at any time they should SEE with their EYES,
        and HEAR with their ears,
        and should UNDERSTAND with their heart,

Acts 3:24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after,

Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up HIS SON Jesus,

            all these things are done in parables:

Justin's Horatatory Address to the Greeks
https://st-takla.org/books/en/ecf/001/0010448.html

"Since therefore it is impossible to learn anything true concerning religion from your teachers,
        who by their mutual disagreement have furnished you with sufficient proof of their own
ignorance,
I consider it reasonable to recur to our progenitors,
        who both in point of time have by a great way the precedence of your teachers,
        and who have taught us
nothing from their own private fancy,
        nor differed with one another,
        nor attempted to overturn one another's positions,
        but without wrangling and contention
        received from God the knowledge which also they taught to us.

For neither by nature nor by human conception is it possible for men to know things so great and divine,
        but by the
gift which then descended from above UPON the holy men,
       
who had no need of rhetorical art,
        nor of uttering anything in a contentious or quarrelsome manner,

                but to present themselves pure to the energy of the Divine SPIRIT
                In order that the
divine plectrum itself, descending from heaven,
                and using righteous men as an
instrument like a harp or lyre,
                might REVEAL to us the KNOWLEDGE. of things divine and heavenly.

Wherefore, as if with ONE
MOUTH and ONE TOUNGE
        they have in succession, and in HARMONY
with one another,
        TAUGHT us both concerning God, and the creation of the world,
                and the formation of man,
                and concerning the immortality of the human soul,
                and the judgment which is to be after this life,
                and concerning all things which it is needful for us to know,
                and thus in divers times and places have afforded us the divine INSTRUCTION .
                (Justin's Horatory Address to the Greeks, Chapt. VIII)

Justin nor any of the historic scholars were IGNORANT of Scripture.

Have ye offered unto Me victims and sacrifices in the wilderness, O house of Israel? saith the Lord.
         And have
ye taken up the tabernacle of Moloch,
        and the

                And

Johnb Unity
"Being human, there is only one type of unity possible for us, and that is unity in diversity. If we do not accept this form of unity there is no other for us" W. Carl Ketcherside. The Twisted Scriptures. 
Tex if you knew Carl and his writings you would know neither of those have anything to do with unity in diversity. 
        The first is another gospel and
         the second is not consistent with a Christian walk.
Unity in diversity is about accepting and working together
        because of what we have in common
        and in spite of interpretation and denominational practices.

WHAT JOHNB AT GRACE CENTERED DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT THE FATHER OF END TIME TRIBULATION

Carl Ketcherside Conformity or Diversity

DEMANDS: Some of those who mistake conformity for unity appear to be startled when they first learn that we suggest there may be unity in diversity.
        Actually we go much farther than that.
        We assert that if there is any unity at all it must be unity in diversity,
         if it is to be enjoyed by free men.
        There is no other kind of unity except for slaves.

The Holy Spirit OF God says: Eph. 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Eph. 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;

In Christianity, Lectio Divina (Latin for "Divine Reading") is a traditional Benedictine practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God's word. It does not treat scripture as texts to be studied, but as the living word.

HORAE
The course of the seasons (or hours) is symbolically described by the dance of the Horae;
        and, in conjunction with the Charites [Pagan GRACE],
        Hebe, Harmonia, and Aphrodite, 

        they accompany the songs of the Muses
        and Apollo's [Abaddon-Apollon] play on the lyre, with their dancing.

        Agape 'love feast,' Agape the ruler of sacred sexual rites

                    unapproachable and serene.

W. Carl Ketcherside: Incendiary Instruments

In many urban communities especially there were those who felt it was necessary to make the congregation "cultured" regardless of the manner by which it was accomplished.

In the heated exchanges the instrument became a status symbol.
        Those who regarded themselves as in a higher social bracket
        And who were progressive in thought and action resented the idea
        of "holding back the church" in the community to please "a bunch of old fogies."

They saw no reason for catering to the whims of an uneducated segment who would make the congregation always subject to the regulation of yokels. In turn, those who opposed the instrument often regarded themselves as the loyal defenders of the bastion against a sinister group of conspirators whom Satan had infiltrated to destroy the last hope of Christianity from the earth.

Winfred E. Garrison in his book "Religion Follows the Frontier," writes about the situation in these words:

"But it should be said that much Christian forbearance was practiced on both sides.
        Franklin (anti-organ) advised the anti-organists to meet separately for worship if an organ was put in over their protest,
        but not to organize a new church, or create a split.
 And Errett (pro-organ) advised discarding the use of the organ where there was opposition by a considerable minority."
I regard as my brothers in the Christ every sincere immersed believer in the Lord Jesus.   Our differences I will approach as differences between brothers,   not as occasions of strife between aliens.  
        I deplore the introduction of instrumental music over the protests of the saints  
        but I deplore even more the adoption of the false premisethat those who were my brothers yesterday are no longer my brothers today.

Ketcherside quotes and lies about several historic preachers saying that they would not EXIT when the Locusts Swarmed under the leadership of Apollyon.

Ketchercide would not permit JohnB to preach for pay.

Karl Ketchercide:
"It is a common error in this degenerate age for men to reason that the duty of elders is to oversee and supervise the work, but they may hire another to do the work.
        "They are willingly ignorant of the fact
        "that their relationship to the flock in a governmental sense is expressed by the term bishop;
        "but their relationship to the flock in a developmental sense is expressed by the term pastor.

"Now they would refuse to hire a man for the first, and claim to hire him only for the second. But it is the second which makes him a pastor, and not the first

"Ask a hireling minister or "located evangelist" the difference between his position and that of the other sectarian pastors about him. His sole glib reply will be that he does not run or manage the church, but is under the elders.

"This has nothing to do with "pastorating." The overseeing or superintending is covered by the term bishop. "The question is not about hiring bishops, but pastors! If a rancher hires a man to prepare feed and dispense it to his sheep, to visit the flock and lead it, has he not hired a shepherd?

"And if the work becomes too arduous and an associate is hired to assist, is he not an associate shepherd? "Could these argue that they were not shepherds because they worked under supervision of the rancher to whom the sheep belonged, and were subject to him as an overseer? Supervising is the work of bishops,feeding the flock is the work of pastors.

"Just because one is not hired to supervise or govern is no sign he is not hired to pastorate. The whole truth is that the very argument of the hireling ministers is a candid admission that they are "pastors" and "associate pastors." (That they All May Be One, Carl Ketcherside, p. 9)

Ketchercide would not fellowship JohnB because his unity demanded that one be baptized FOR the remission of Sins.
Ketchercide would not fellowship JohnB because he rejected all but the Prophets for faith and practice.
Ketchercide would not fellowship JohnB because Johnb is a Calvinist.       

In 1856, Peter Cartwright, the famous Methodist circuit rider, wrote in his autobiography as follows: "The Presbyterians, and other Calvinistic branches of the Protestant Church, used to contend for an educated ministry, for pews, for instrumental music, for a congregational or salaried minister. 'The Methodists universally opposed these ideas; and the illiterate Methodist preachers actually set the world on fire the American world at least--while they were lighting their matches."

I have many things, not one, to lament, my native land, the death of Hector, and the hard lot to which I have been yoked when I fell undeservedly into slavery.

Hes. WD 709
Be careful to avoid the anger of the deathless gods. Do not make a friend equal to a brother; but if you do, do not wrong him first, and do not lie to please the tongue. But if he wrongs you first, [710] offending either in word or in deed, remember to repay him double; but if he asks you to be his friend again and be ready to give you satisfaction, welcome him. He is a worthless man who makes now one and now another his friend; but as for you, do not let your face put your heart to shame [715] Do not get a name either as lavish or as churlish, as a friend of rogues, or as a slanderer of good men. Never dare to taunt a man with deadly poverty which eats out the heart; it is sent by the deathless gods. [720] The best treasure a man can have is a sparing tongue, and the greatest pleasure, one that moves orderly; for if you speak evil, you yourself will soon be worse spoken of. Do not be boorish at a common feast where there are many guests; the pleasure is greatest and the expense is least.

The Graces as Muses were "blue-eyed blond musical prostitutes." They were Abaddon-Apollyon's Praise Team.

"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.

The Three Graces and Mount Olympus
The three Graces resided above the golden clouds on Mount Olympus where they entertained the Olympian gods and goddesses. They sang and danced to the music of the Muses and Apollon's lyre. They were also the attendants of the love deities Aphrodite and Eros and formed part of their retinue. In their roles of social hostesses to the Olympians and especially favored by Hera, Hermes and Apollon for bring joy and goodwill to all of the events.   were also joined in the banquets, celebrations by the four Seasons, called the Horae who were the keepers of the gates to Mount Olympus.
People would invoke the aid of the Graces to guide and assist them in their art, musical compositions, work, songs and dance. The invocation took the form of a prayer for divine inspiration from the goddesses.

Goddess in ancient Middle-Eastern temples. They
were often known as Charites or Graces, since they dealt in the
unique combination of beauty and kindness called charis (Latin caritas)
that was later translated "charity." Actually it was like Hindu karuna,
a combination of mother-love, tenderness, comfort, mystical enlightenment,
and sex.
Hesiod said the sensual magic of the sacred whores or Horae [the HOURS]
Hes. Th. 1 From the Heliconian Muses let us begin to sing, who hold the great and holy mount of Helicon, and dance on soft feet about the deep-blue spring and the altar of the almighty son of Cronos, [5] and, when they have washed their tender bodies in Permessus or in the Horse's Spring or Olmeius, make their fair, lovely dances upon highest Helicon and move with vigorous feet. Thence they arise and go abroad by night, [10] veiled in thick mist, and utter their song with lovely voice, praising Zeus the aegis-holder, and queenly Hera of Argos who walks on golden sandals, and the daughter of Zeus the aegis-holder bright-eyed Athena, and Phoebus Apollo, and Artemis who delights in arrows, [15] and Poseidon the earth holder who shakes the earth, and revered Themis, and quick-glancing1Aphrodite, and Hebe with the crown of gold, and fair Dione, Leto, Iapetus, and Cronos the crafty counsellor, Eos, and great Helius, and bright Selene,
[20] Earth, too, and great Oceanus, and dark Night, and the holy race of all the other deathless ones that are for ever. And one day they taught Hesiod glorious song while he was shepherding his lambs under holy Helicon, and this word first the goddesses said to me—
[25] the Muses of Olympus, daughters of Zeus who holds the aegis:
         “Shepherds of the wilderness, wretched things of shame, mere bellies,
        we know how to speak many false things as though they were true;
        but we know, when we will, to utter true things.”

MUSICAL WORSHIP TEAMES ARE GRACES AND MUSES LED BY THE SPIRITUS OF APOLLON.  "USED" to create lust and disrobing as worship.

        and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

There is NO GRACE for those who say that Jesus WAS God or made himself God: Jesus callls them BLASPHEMERS.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that the Jehovah-Elohim came in the flesh: John calls them ANTICHRISTS.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that the Spirit OF God was a GOD PERSON without which Jesus' Words would not be INTELLIGIBLE.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that The Holy Spirit was an ADDITIONAL Comforter God: 1 John 2 says that the Comforter was Jesus Christ the Righteous.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that the HOLY SPIRIT GOD guided the Apostles into all truth when Jesus promised that I WILL COME TO YOU.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that God ETERNALLY decided that yout infant baby would burn in Hell.  The smalll remnant of Jews (excluding Scribes, Priests or Levites) is defined in prophecy and fulfilled that the ELECT would be a small groiup of Jews who had not bowed to Baal.
There is NO GRACE for those who say that A spirit commanded them to impose worship by MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS which that defines the Devil defined as the "Singing and Harp-Playing Prostitute in the garden of Eden."  Machine Worship which destroys indifidula worship IN THE SPIRIT Makes Jesus and others DUMB BEFORE THE SLAUGHTER and always associated with BURNING.
There can be NO GRACE for those who call the Holy Spirit in the Prophets, Jesus who exampled and commanded baptism and is the only thing said to SAVE and REMIT SINS.


Ephraim Syrus On Our Lord Grace Loaded Them beyond their Power

19. But when Moses came down, he saw their heathenism revelling
        in the wide plain with
drums and cymbals.
        Speedily, he put their madness to shame by means of the
Levites and drawn swords.

So likewise here, our Lord concealed His knowledge for a little
        when the sinful woman approached Him,
        that the
Pharisee might form into shape his thought,
        as his
fathers had shaped the pernicious calf.

THERE IS NO GRACE (CHARIS) FOR CHARISMATIC WORSHIP LEADERS

Charismatic Worship is Charis or Grace based worship. Scripture is clear that WORD is the only Regulative Principle and SPEAK or READ is the only way to MARK it as Christ and Word-Centered.  The only "worship" concept is to give heed to God by giving heed to His Word.  Charismatic depends a a man-centered speaker and musicians.  Music was-is the most powerful to bring on KOMA or "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

From clay Tablets onward:
"Atmospheres are going to come through music, because the music is a spiritual thing of its own ... YOU HYPNOTIZE PEOPLE to where they go right back to their natural state [which, biblically speaking, is the fallen, sinful state]... People want release any kind of way nowadays. The idea is to release in the proper form. Then they'll feel like GOING INTO ANOTHER WORLD, a clearer world. The music flows from the air; that's why I CONNECT WITH A SPIRIT, and when they come down off THIS NATURAL HIGH, they see clearer, feel different things..." (Jimmy Hendrix, rock star,
Life, Oct. 3, 1969, p. 74).

Jeremiah 11:18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it:
        then thou shewedst me their doings.

Jeremiah 11:19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter;
        and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying,
        Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living,
        that his name may be no more remembered.

Those who get a vision to MOCK JESUS in fulfillment of prophecy ALSO rush to remove CHRIST from their public confession.

The eternal ENCOMIAST

The statue was also clad in
costly raiment, bathed, and escorted to bed in the bedchamber of the god, often on top of the temple tower, or ziggurat.

To see to all of this the god had priests trained as cooks, bakers, waiters, and bathers, or as encomiasts (singers of praise) and musicians

to make the god's meals festive, or as elegists to soothe him in times of stress and grief. Diversions from the daily routine were the great monthly festivals and also a number of special occasions.

Tatian to the Greeks Chapter VII.—Concerning the Fall of Man.

For the heavenly Logos,
        a spirit emanating from the Father
        and a Logos from the Logos-power,
        in imitation of the Father who begat Him made man an image of immortality, so that, as incorruption is with God, in like manner, man, sharing in a part of God, might have the immortal principle also. The Logos, too, before the creation of men, was the Framer of angels. And each of these two orders of creatures was made free to act as it pleased, not having the nature of good, which again is with God alone, but is brought to perfection in men through their freedom of choice, in order that the bad man may be justly punished, having become depraved through his own fault, but the just man be deservedly praised for his virtuous deeds, since in the exercise of his free choice he refrained from transgressing the will of God. Such is the constitution of things in reference to angels and men. And the power of the Logos, having in itself a faculty to foresee future events, not as 68fated, but as taking place by the choice of free agents, foretold from time to time the issues of things to come; it also became a forbidder of wickedness by means of prohibitions, and the encomiast of those who remained good.

And, when men attached themselves to one who was more subtle than the rest, having regard to his being the first-born,

Notes Genesis 3:1-5
The devil, as he is a liar, so he is a scoffer from the beginning; and scoffers are his children. It is the craft of Satan to speak of the Divine law as uncertain or unreasonable, and so to draw people to sin; it is our wisdom to keep up a firm belief of God's command

Notes continued:

        In the first part everything is plain.
Apollon and the Muses are to the Greek the authors of all harmony, artistic, political, social, spiritual.
The lyre, as the instrument of Apollon,
        is the symbol of the reign of harmony over the wide domain of Zeus.
Everything that owes allegiance to Zeus obeys his son Apollo,
        obeys the quivering [palmos] of the lyre's strings.
        So the footstep of the dancer,
        the voice of the singer.
        Even the thunderbolt, the weapon of Zeus, is quenched,
                the bird of Zeus slumbers,
                the wild son of Zeus, violent Ares, sleeps a deep sleep.
                This is the art of the son of Leto and the deep-bosomed Muses (vv. 1-12).

The Elegiac Poems of Theognis

15-18 Muses and Graces, Daughters of Zeus, who came of yore to the wedding of Cadmus and sang so fair a song, ‘What is fair is dear, and not dear what is not fair,’ —such was the song that passed your immortal lips.

757-768 May Zeus that dwelleth in the sky ever keep his right arm over this city for her safety's sake, and with him the other Blessed Immortals;
        may Apollon set straight both our tonque and our wits;
        and may harp and pipe sound holy music;

        and let us conciliate the Gods with a libation,
        and drink in pleasant converse one with another,
        fearing no whit the war of the Medes. 'Twere better thus,
         'twere better to spend our days in jolly revelry,
        of one accord and cares apart, and to keep far away those evil Spirits,
        baleful Eld and the end that is Death.
All religious Religious Musicians quickly devolve to a Rock and Roll style.

Rick Atchley The FOUNDATION used by Instrumental Apostates: "You are going to find a lot of a cappella churches that are gonna' start saying Sunday morning we are going to be a cappella, but after that, we are going to let a lot of freedom reign, which is pretty much what we do at Richland Hills.

 You walk into our youth center Sunday morning or Wednesday night: and I'm telling you; Christian rock an' roll is just blasting" (p. 9).

"Rock 'n' roll is pagan and primitive, and very jungle, and that's how it should be! The moment it stops being those things, it's dead ... the true meaning of rock ... is sex, subversion and style" (Malcolm McLaren, punk rock manager, Rock, August 1983, p. 60).

"When you're in a certain frame of mind, particularly sexually-oriented, there's nothing better than rock and roll ... because that's where most of the performers are at" (Aerosmith's manager,
USA Today, Dec. 22, 1983, p. D5).

"Rock music is sex and you have to hit them [teenagers] in the face with it" (Andrew Oldham, manager of the Rolling Stones,
Time, April 28, 1967, p. 54).

"The great strength of rock 'n' roll lies in its beat ... it is a music which is basically sexual, un-Puritan ... and a threat to established patterns and values" (Irwin Silber, Marxist,
Sing Out, May 1965, p. 63).

Praise and Worship songs based on Voodoo

TRINITY in Scripture and the first users of the Greek TRIAS speaks of the nature of the ONE GOD in respect to His INSTRUCTION to the Earlier Prophets to define the Ekklesia of Christ both inclusively and now through the MAN JESUS OF NAZARETH.  Most clergy do not want you to know Scripture or history.

IN NO LANGUAGE DOES "SPIRIT" EVER MEAN A PERSON OR A GOD. God Puts His Words into Jesus directly: the way He dose this is by the figurative word BREATH.

Theophilus the ORIGINATOR Chapter IX.-The Prophet's Inspired by the Holy Ghost.

But men of God  carrying in them A holy spirit and becoming prophets, being inspired and made wise by God, became God-taught, and holy, and righteous.

Wherefore they were also deemed worthy of receiving this reward, that they should become
........... instruments of God, and contain the wisdom that is from Him,
........... ........... through which wisdom they uttered both
........... ........... what regarded the creation of the world and all other things.

For they predicted also pestilences, and famines, and wars. And there was not one or two, but many, at various times and seasons among the Hebrews; and also among the Greeks there was the Sibyl; and they all have spoken things consistent and harmonious with each other, both what happened before them and what happened in their own time, and what things are now being fulfilled in our own day: wherefore we are persuaded also concerning the future things that they will fall out, as also the first have been accomplished.

Chapter X.-The World Created by God Through the Word.

And first, they taught us with one consent that God made all things out of nothing; for nothing was coeval with God: but He being His own place, and wanting nothing,
........... and existing before the ages, willed to make man by whom He might be known;
........... for him, therefore, He prepared the world.
........... For he that is created is also needy; but he that is uncreated stands in need of nothing.

God, then, having His own Word internal within His own bowels,
........... begat Him, emitting Him
........... along with His own wisdom before all things.

He had this Word as a helper in the things that were created by Him, and by Him He made all things.

He is called "governing principle", because He rules, and is Lord of all things fashioned by Him.
He, then, being
Spirit of God,
        and governing
principle,
        and
wisdom,
        and
power of the highest,
came down upon the prophets
, and through them spoke of the creation of the world and of all other things.  (This was the Spirit of Christ, 1 Peter 1:11; Revelation 19:10)

THE KHARITES (Charites) or Graces, were the three goddesses of grace, beauty, adornment, mirth, festivity, dance and song. A number of "younger Kharites" presided over the other pleasures of life, including play, amusement, banqueting, floral decoration, happiness, rest and relaxation.

The Kharites were attendants of the goddesses Aphrodite and Hera. One named Kharis, was the wife of Hephaistos. Another, Pasithea, was married to Hypnos (Sleep).

Titus 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

GRACE CENTERED DEMANDS ECUMENICISM

All founders of denominations claimed to be based on SCRIPTURE. That meant the Old and New Testament.
Those who have gained control of The Grace Centered Movement rejects God Who is the LOGOS or Regulative Principle and Jesus Who commanded that we teach and observe what HE commanded: that includes the Prophets and Apostles and Excludes Priests and Levites (Speakers and musicians).  The only personified SPIRITUS is Apollon leader of Musical Worship Teams known as LOCUSTS.

Then shall the Lord raise up a new priest. And to him

And his star shall arise in heaven as of a king. Testament of Levi 5:13-15

And the knowledge of the Lord shall be POURED forth upon the earth,
as the water of the seas.
The heavens shall be opened, and
from the temple of glory shall come upon him sanctification,
with the Father's voice as from Abraham to Isaac.
And the glory of the Most High shall be uttered over him and
the SPIRIT OF and sanctification
shall rest upon him in the water. Testament of Levi 5:19,-22

And he shall open the gates of paradise,
and shall remove the
threatening sword against Adam,
and he shall give to the saints to eat from the tree of life,
and the
spirit of holiness shall be on them.
And Beliar shall be bound by him,

THE DOVE AS PARABLE.

The dove, the chosen symbol of this deified queen, is commonly represented with an olive branch in her mouth (Fig 25),
When the goddess was thus represented as the Dove with the olive branch, there can be no doubt that the symbol had partly reference to the story of the flood; but there was much more in the symbol than a mere memorial of that great event. "A branch," as has been already proved, was the symbol of the deified son, and when the deified mother was represented as a Dove, what could the meaning of this representation be but just to identify her with the Spirit of all grace, that brooded, dove-like, over the deep at the creation; for in the sculptures at Nineveh, as we have seen, the wings and tail of the dove represented the third member of the idolatrous Assyrian trinity. In confirmation of this view, it must be stated that the Assyrian "JunoHislop 23

Grace Centered Magazine INFORMED by Lipscomb University but now controlled by Jews, blasphemers, antichrists and Messianic Jews.

Leonard Allen Spirit poured out to ENABLE the Father and Son in Mission
In these “trinitarian” narratives, Scripture reveals the PERSON of the Spirit in an intimate relationship with Jesus.
        The Son and the Spirit are INTERDEPENDENT persons
                who TOGETHER,  in the intimacy of their relationship,
                work to bring us into the fullness of life the Father desires for us.

Grace Centered Controllers refuse to post the rebuttal.  That is because ANTICHRISTS deny that the MAN Jesus Christ came in the flesh.

Grace Centered and the Jews claimed that Jesus made himself God. Jesus branded BLASPHEMERS who refuted His claim to be the Son of God under the full authority of His and our father.

Grace Centered Forum moderators and favored Messianic Jews:

        Jesus of Nazareth the "person" did not exist. What people saw IN THE FLESH was the only "I AM the Lord-God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."      
        This is the extreme Lipscomb Invented Trinity of Three persons as centers of consciousness and ONE only if they were in close communion. 

Antithesis: The MAN Jesus of Nazareth:  

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see;
        for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Grace Centered Magazine and C. Leonard Allen Lipscomb:  
The Son was dependent upon the SPIRIT, and the Spirit was dependent upon the Son;
                            in the New Testament, we see a deep reciprocity between them
      

Neither Hebrew, Latin or Greek words translated as SPIRIT is ever a PERSON much less a GOD.  SPIRIT produces WORDS as the well-documented Pneuma-Logos concept.  This is the opposite of Jewish spirit as SOPHIA which is marked by vocal and instrument music Biblically and historically connected to real or virtual pederasty. Paul excludes the Concision or Dogs in Philippiuans 3.

The IMPURE GRACES are offended by masculine LOGOS and devote themselves to SELF-EXHIBITION in religious rituals using Praise Songs with clear sexual content.

This movement has come a long way fast. It will not go away soon, I believe, because it is so intimately tied to deep changes in modern society, in particular those associated with philosophical postmodernism.

SAVE YOURSELVES FROM THE CROOKED RACE
Symposium of Plato: the Crooked Race of singing and playing twisting songs as a prelude to BOY LOVE.

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. [WRATH] This suggestion is applauded by Socrates. Of the encomia the most noteworthy were the following:—

c The general characteristics (1) of Eros Pandemos are that it is directed to women as well as boys, to the body rather than the soul, to unscrupulous satisfaction of lust; (2) whereas Eros Uranios shuns females and seeks only such males as are noble and nearly mature both in mind and body. It is the followers of Eros Pandemos who have brought paederastia into disrepute.

d The varying nomoi concerning Eros may be classified thus:—

(1) In all Greek states except Athens the nomos [LEGALISM] is simple, either (a) approving paederastia, as in Elis and Boeotia; or (b) condemning it, as in Ionia and states subject to barbarian rule, where it is held to foster a dangerous spirit of independence (e.g. Harmodius and Aristogiton).

(2) At Athens the nomos is complex. (a) Eros is approved, and its excesses condoned, when directed towards superior youths approaching manhood. (b) It appears to be condemned, in so far as parents forbid their boys to hold converse with “erastae.” The explanation of this ambiguous attitude must be sought in the principle laid down above, that the moral quality of an act depends upon the conditions of its performance. The Athenian nomos provides a test for distinguishing between good and bad forms of Eros: the test of time shows whether or not the right motive (desire for aretē) [OUTLAWED IN ROMANS 15] actuates both the lover and his object. This motive alone justifies all erotic pursuits and surrenders, even mutual deception: hence we conclude that kalon aretēs heneka kharizesthai.

The number and features of these three sexes were owing to the fact that the male was originally the offspring of the sun, and the female of the earth; while that which partook of both sexes was born of the moon, for the moon also partakes of both.1 They were globular in their shape as in their progress, since they took after their parents. Now, they were of surprising strength and vigor, and so lofty in their notions that they even conspired against the gods; and the same story is told of them as Homer relates of

[192b] they are boy-lovers, and have no natural interest in wiving and getting children, but only do these things under stress of custom; they are quite contented to live together unwedded all their days. A man of this sort is at any rate born to be a lover of boys or the willing mate of a man, eagerly greeting his own kind. Well, when one of them—whether he be a boy-lover or a lover of any other sort—

Matt. 10:26 Fear them not therefore:
        for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed;
        and hid, that shall not be known.

Jesus of Nazareth appeared and spoke to Paul and Jesus of Nazareth in the FORM of HOLY SPIRIT would speak to the Apostles.

Matt. 10:27 What I TELL you in darkness,
        that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the EAR,
        that preach ye upon the housetops.
Matt. 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:

Leonard Allen Informing Grace Centered Magazine: The fullest portrayal of the personhood of the Spirit is found in the Paraclete passages in John 14–16,
        where the Spirit MEDIATES the Father and the Son to the disciples (especially 14:6–11).

That means that neither FATHER nor SON speak INTELLIGIBLY and therefore the Spirit God is REQUIRED.

However, Jesus said that He would be the COMFORTER and He is the ONLY MEDIATOR.

1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE [unus] GOD [A Single]
        AND ONE [unus] mediator BETWEEN God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep MY commandments.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father,
        and he shall give you another Comforter,  [allos different meaning in the state of HOLY SPIRIT]
        that he may abide with you for ever;

Jesus didn't say THE HOLY SPIRIT AS REQUIRED GOD PERSON. Spirit means BREATH which conveys MENTAL DISPOSITION."

John 14:17 Even the Spirit OF truth; whom the world cannot receive,
        because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
        but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

GOD IS COMPLETE IN THAT HE THINKS, BREATHES AND ARTICULATES WORDS. That is the TRIAS taught by Scripture and the first writers along with John to refute the Greeks and Jews SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN who taught that Jesus WAS their old Jehovah and Messiah ONLY of Jews. PEOPLE are OF the World and speak OF the world or they could never misunderstand that JESUS in His glorified or HOLY SPIRIT state will be the only mediator.

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless [Paraklete]: I will come to you.
John 14:19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more;
        but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that
        I am IN my Father,
        and ye IN me,
        and I IN you.

CONDITION:

John 14:21 He that hath my commandments,
        and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: a
        And he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father,
        and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE [unus] GOD [A Single]
        AND ONE [unus] mediator BETWEEN God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate
[Paraklete] with the Father,
        Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1John 2:4 He that saith, I know him,
        and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word,
        IN HIM verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Grace Centered Magazine:  John 10:30 I and my Father are one

Antithesis: The MAN Jesus of Nazareth:  

John 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not:
        the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
John 10:26 But ye believe not,
        because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice,
        and I know them, and they follow me:
John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
        neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me,
        is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

From English Grammar the AND proves that I am not my FATHER.  From the context, Jesus said that I and my father are UNITED.

After the Instrumental fall from grace at Mount Sinai the Church of Christ (the Rock) was REaffirmed (from Jacob in Genesis 49).  This quarantined the godly people for REST from the always-pagan seventh day "worship" (Legalism).  The once-piece pattern never changed. Timothy and even Gentiles were wise unto salvation because:

Those spreading hate against churches of Christ using the ACAPPELLA word as a RACA word Never needed any authority from God for anything.  They claim that A spirit commanded them to do what feels good because we are beyond the Father Dispensation, the Son and Bible dispensation and are now under THE holy spirit dispensation,  EX churches of Christ use the Latin PSALLO word promoted as late as 1878 to COMMAND musical instruments to REPLACE speaking that which is written for our learning.

Most once-conservative Churches of Christ do a legalistic end run around Scripture by saying that the Greek PSALLO commands an OBSERVATION (to which the kingdom does not come) of SINGING Psalms, hymns and spiritual song and making HARMONY which is not related to MELODY.  They say MELODY OUT LOUD, Paul said MELODY in the heart or Silent as in 1 Corinthians 14.

Psallō IN THE HEART or SILENT simply means to SMITE a string (bow) with the FINGERS but not with the PLECTRUM to make a TWANGING sound.  The Psallō in the Bible has no musical component but speaks of the senior leaders plucking a lyre to seduce a younger male whose pubic hairs had been PLUCKED.


Vocal or Instrumental Psallo is NOT Psallō IN THE HEART or SILENT.  The Key factor in the Christian Assembly is that both male and female remain silent "so that we might all come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH or the Word of God.

Singing and dancing or any BODY MOVEMENT
 

Saltatio   In many of the Greek States the art of dancing was carried to great perfection by females, who were frequently engaged to add to the pleasures and enjoyment of men at their symposia. These dancers always belonged to the courtesans. Xenophon ( Symp. ix. 2-7) describes a mimetic dance which was represented at a symposium where Socrates was present. It was performed by a maiden and a youth, belonging to a Syracusan, who is called the orkhēstodidaskalos, and represented the loves of Dionysus and Ariadné.
Xen. Sym. 9.2    After he had withdrawn, a chair of state, first of all, was set down in the room, and then the Syracusan came in with the announcement: “Gentlemen, Ariadne will now enter the chamber set apart for her and Dionysus; after that, Dionysus, a little flushed with wine drunk at a banquet of the gods, will come to join her; and then they will disport themselves together.”

Saltatio Dancing was common among the Romans in ancient times in connection with religious festivals and rites, and was practised, according to Servius (ad Verg. Ecl. v. 73), because the ancients thought that no part of the body should be free from the influence of religion.
Verg. Ecl. v. 73
Therewithal at my behest
shall Lyctian Aegon and Damoetas sing,
and Alphesiboeus emulate in dance
the dancing Satyrs. This, thy service due,
shalt thou lack never, both when we pay the Nymphs
our yearly vows,


Saltatio but the terms orkhēsis and saltatio were used in so much wider a sense than our word dancing that they were applied to designate gestures even when the body did not move at all (saltare solis oculis, Ov. Met. x. p. 251).
Ov. Met. 10

Downe at the gate of Taenarus did go to Limbo lake.
And thence by gastly folk and soules late buried he did take
His journey to Persephonee and to the king of Ghosts
That like a Lordly tyran reignes in those unpleasant coasts.
And playing on his tuned harp he thus began to sound:
O you, the Sovereines of the world set underneath the ground,
To whome wee all (what ever thing is made of mortall kynd)
Repayre, if by your leave I now may freely speake my mynd,
I come not hither as a spye the shady Hell to see:
Nor yet the foule three headed Curre whose heares all Adders bee
To tye in cheynes. The cause of this my vyage is my wyfe
Whose foote a Viper stinging did abridge her youthfull lyfe.

Saltatio Dancing was originally closely connected with religion. Plato thought all dancing should be based on religion, as it was, he says, among the Egyptians. It has been shown under Chorus that the chorus in the oldest times consisted of the whole population of a city, who met in a public place to offer up thanksgivings to the god of their country by singing hymns and performing dances. These dances, which, like all others, were accompanied by music, were therefore of a strictly religious nature; and in all the public festivals, which were so numerous among the Greeks, dancing formed a very prominent part. We find, from the earliest times, that the worship of Apollo was connected with a religious dance called Hyporchema (q.v.)
The Oschophoria, This procession, in which a chorus of singers was preceded by two youths in woman's clothing, marched from the temple of Athené to that of Dionysus. The festival was concluded by a sacrifice and a banquet.

The members of the different tribes first went in solemn processions to the altar of the god, on which a goat was offered in sacrifice. The sacrifice was followed by feasting and revelry, with abundance of jesting and mockery and dramatic improvisations.
Hyporchēma (huporkhēma). A species of lyric, choral song in lively rhythms; its subject was generally gay, and contained imitative dance movements. Like the paeans, these choral odes were mostly sung in honour of Apollon

Saltatio In the former, the life and adventures of the god were represented by mimetic dancing (see Dionysia); the dance called Bakkhikē was a satyric dance, and chiefly prevailed in Ionia and Pontus; the most illustrious men in the State danced in it, representing Titans, Corybantians, satyrs, and husbandmen, and the spectators were so delighted with the exhibition that they remained sitting the whole day to witness it, forgetful of everything else

Markus Reciting the Book: 11 Hence, I argue first that the representation of the epic recital is highly dependent upon the representation of other public performances and, second, that epic's social image is attacked and reclaimed via its public performance.

In fact, behind the criticisms of the epic recital often lie issues about the performance of gender and social status.

In that regard, epic's position is parallel to that of rhetoric. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetorica (1404a), critics of rhetorical performance have ascribed to lively delivery the same effect as that of acting. There is a persistent association between theatrics, bad rhetoric and effeminacy.

Rhetoric was forever at pains to disentangle itself from unwanted associations with female deception and histrionic art, because it was viewed as the art of socially weak women and slaves,and rhetoricians of all ages have assiduously fought against any trace of bodily and vocal practice associated with these groups.

However, from the examples that I have just used, it is evident, I believe, which art of music I consider appropriate in the training of the orator and to what extent.

Nevertheless, I think that I need to be more explicit in stating that the music which I prescribe is not the modern music which has been emasculated by the lascivious melodies of the effeminate stage and has to no small extent destroyed the amount of manly vigor that we still possessed.

I refer rather to the music of old with which people used to sing the praises of brave men and which the brave themselves used to sing. 

But this fact does not justify degeneration into sing-song or the effeminate modulations now in vogue. There is an excellent saying on this point attributed to Gaius Caesar while he was still a boy: "If you are singing, you sing badly; if you are reading, you sing."

Girardian Reflections on the Lectionary:
5.4.2
Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.


45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses.
          Myth means to close ourselves to the victim
                and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective;
          mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out
          the voice of the victim

5.5 In general, then, the survival of the victim's perspective is highly unusual as a historical phenomenon -- until more recent history, that is, when the victim's perspective has finally established a beachhead in Western culture, namely, the cultures most often in closest contact with the Gospel (more on this below). (And it must be emphasized that the close contact is in the category of being an accident of history and not by any meritorious claims for Western culture. In short, the perspective of the victim has established a place in Western culture not because of any inherent merit in Western culture but because of the historical accident of being in close proximity to the Gospel over a long period of time.)

Cic. Catil. 2.10.23 In these bands are all the gamblers,
        all the adulterers, all the unclean and shameless citizens.
        These boys, so witty and delicate,
        have learnt not only to love and to be loved,
            not only to sing and to dance,
            but also to brandish daggers and to administer poisons;
       and unless they are driven out,
       unless they die, even should Catiline die, 
       I warn you that the school of Catiline would exist in the republic.
But what do those wretches want? Are they going to take their wives with them to the camp? how can they do without them, especially in these nights? and how will they endure the Apennines, and these frosts, and this snow?
      unless they think that they will bear the winter more easily
      because they have been in the habit of dancing naked at their feasts. O
war much to be dreaded, when Catiline is going to have his bodyguard of prostitutes!

Suet. Tit. 3 While yet a boy, he was remarkable for his noble endowments both of body and mind; and as he advanced in years, they became still more conspicuous.
        He had a fine person, combining an equal mixture of majesty and grace;
        was very strong, though not tall, and somewhat corpulent.
Gifted with an excellent memory, and a capacity for all the arts of peace and war; he was a perfect master of the use of arms and riding; very ready in the Latin and Greek tongues,
        both in verse and prose; and such was the facility he possessed in both,
        that he would harangue and VERSIFY extempore.
        Nor was he unacquainted with MUSIC,
                but could both SING and PLAY upon the HARP sweetly and scientifically.
        I have likewise been informed by many persons,
                that he was remarkably quick in writing short-hand,
                would in merriment and jest engage with his secretaries
                in the imitation of any hand-writing he saw, and often say, "
                that he was admirably qualified for forgery."

Sal. Cat. 25 In the number of those ladies was Sempronia, a woman who had committed many crimes with the spirit of a man. In birth and beauty, in her husband and her children, she was extremely fortunate;
        she was skilled in Greek and Roman literature;
        she could sing, play, and dance, *
        with greater elegance than became a woman of virtue,
and possessed many other accomplishments that tend to excite the passions. But nothing was ever less valued by her than honor or chastity. Whether she was more prodigal of her money or her reputation, it would have been difficult to decide. Her desires were so ardent that she oftener made advances to the other sex than waited for solicitation. She had frequently, before this period, forfeited her word, forsworn debts, been privy to murder, and hurried into the utmost excesses by her extravagance and poverty. But her abilities were by no means despicable; she could compose verses, jest, and join in conversation either modest, tender, or licentious. In a word, she was distinguished by much refinement of wit,
