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

First, the body of flesh must be sacrificed or burned up:
Thu^si-a , Ion. -, h(, (thuō) prop. A. burnt-offering, sacrifice, “en thusiēsi einaiHdt.8.99;
Then, it is possible to engage in RATIONAL or SPIRITUAL worship:

Spiritual worship or Reasonable worship is the Word of Christ only.
So, rational or spiritual worship is EXCLUSIVE of music which disables the mind.
Rational worship is of the reason or intellect.
Spiritual worship os Opposite to "sermonizing" or "moralizing which is:
Ethi^k-os , A. ēthos11) moral, Opposite. dianoētikos, Arist.EN1103a5, al.; ta ēthika a treatise on morals,
The Word of God is the only thing that can transform OUR spirit into the likeness of Christ's spirit:
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world:
        but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,
        and
perfect, will of God.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the holy spirit (Our's)
Just so that NO ONE can be taken captive, Paul uses parallelism and words which have their opposite meaning:
        Dionetikos or thinking, in turn, is the Opposite of Ethikos or composed songs or sermons.

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

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

Rational or Logikos worship includes the HUMAN tongue as the "organ" which is the Opposite of musical organs just as Logikos or rational worship is the Opposite of music.

A. conversational,
2. d. organa organs of articulate speech, Opposite  phōnētika,
II. skilled in dialectic,ho erōtan kai apokrinesthai epistamenosPl.Cra.390c;

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

Phōn-eō , (phōnē) 4. of a musical instrument, sound, E.Or.146 (speak like the breath of a slender reed-pipe) (lyr.); of sounds, hēdu phōnein sound sweetly, but brontē ph. (thunder to strike with astonishment)) it has a voice, is significant, X.Ap.12.

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

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

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

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