Max Lucado and Anathema

Max Lucado and Anathema? Explain.  Any speaker or banjo strummer claiming to ADORN the School of Christ is declared ANATHEMA: they cannot be redeemed and MUST BE BURNED.  Instruments silencing the voice of God are always attached to sorcery or witchcraft and BURNING. 

A Church of Christ as a School (only) of the Word and is built upon or educated by the Prophets and Apostles. There is no other purpose and no other teaching resource within the bounds of being a Christian, Disciple or Students.  Students of Christ do not attend pagan-like worship rituals as legalism

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

The Greek "Psallo" was used by the Septuagint translators because all forms of the word speak of APOLLON shooting real arrows and using his guitar to shoot love arrows into male and female disciples. THEOLOGY is the study of APOLLON because you cannot STUDY a Holy God. Because it is a warfare and fondling word is is ONLY done with the FINGERS and never with a PLECTRUM or banjo pick.

There is no role for Randy other than Peter's continuing to brand him a false teacher.


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

2Pet. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
        by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

2Pet. 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:
        whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

This is anyone who fabricates sermons or songs when Jesus did all of the expounding free of charge.

Instrumental and Genderless worship is always attached to silencing God's word and BURNING.  When people dedicate their body and talent to adorn the WORD of God as the ONLY resource they are ANATHEMATED, cannot be redeemed and MUST BE BURNED.

Anathema and Instrumental Musical Worship

is anything so sacrificed or devoted to the Lord and could not be redeemed (Num. 18:14; Lev. 27:28, 29); and hence the idea of exterminating was connected with the word. The Hebrew verb (haram) is frequently used of the extermination of idolatrous nations.

-Anathκma , /, (anatithēmi) A. that which is set up: hence, like agalma, votive offering set up in a temple, Hdt.1.14,92, S.Ant.286, “a. ek leitourgiōn” Lys.26.4.  agalma, delight, ornament, “molpē t' orkhēstusanathēmata daitos” Od.1.152, cf. 21.430, tois tekousin anathēma biotou, of children,

Leitourg-ia  III. public service of the gods, “hai pros tous theous l.” Arist.Pol.1330a13; “hai tōn theōn therapeiai kai l.” D.S.1.21, cf. UPZ17.17 (ii B.C.), PTeb.302.30 (i A.D.), etc.; the service or ministry of priests, LXX Nu.8.25, Ev.Luc.1.23.

Lys. 26 4  But I find no difficulty in countering those statements. As regards the public services, I say that his father would have done better not to perform them than to spend so much of his substance: for it was on account of this that he won the confidence of the people and overthrew the democracy; and so our memory of these deeds must be more abiding than of the offerings he has set up1 in record of those services.
        1 In the temples at Athens, Delphi, etc.
Rom. 9:3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren,
        my kinsmen according to the flesh:

Gal. 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven,
        preach any other gospel unto you
        than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
  1. Jesus preached the gospel OF the kingdom as prophesied inclusively and exclusively in the prophets.
  2. That kingdom does not come with observation meaning religious observations which destroy the REST as SCHOOL of the Word or Regulative principle.
  3. The Spirit OF Christ defined the future REST in His Church, House or School both inclusively and exclusively.
  4. A Church of Christ is built upon or Educated by the Apostles and Prophets who left us a MEMORY.
  5. Those who claim the honor and hire of ADORNING a religious institution have confessed to being ANATHEMA:
  6. They cannot be redeemed and MUST be burned.  Religious music and musicians are always the mark of silencing the voice of Jesus and of BURNING.
1Kings 20:42 And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Because thou hast let go out of thy hand a man whom I appointed to utter destruction, therefore thy life shall go for his life, and thy people for his people.

But when a man who is made up of words, and those words bitter words and useless—when such a man takes refuge in “simplicity” and “the facts,” who could have patience with him? If you treat him as you might a clarinet, and take out his tongue, you have nothing left!


God did not command the king, kingdom, temple or sacrificial system. Therefore, He did not command anything which went along with this national system as Isreal was "turned over to worship the starry host."

Anathema is often pronounced on those who will not participate in any of the ceremonial legalism patterned after the Monarchy period.  However, the word anathema is pronounced on anyone who presumes that they or their talent is required for God to carry out His Will.  Anathema was often the religious performers attached to national sacrificial systems.

Prophetic of the sacrificial system which is the pattern in part for most religious institutions, Jacob warned:
Genesis 49:5 Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
Genesis 49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly,
        mine honour, be not thou united:
        for in their anger they slew a man,
            and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.
Genesis 49:7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel:
        I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
When Israel rose up in musical idolatry at Mount Sinai God turned them over to worship the starry host (Acts 7 etal). When the elders fired God and demanded a king like the nations God knew that they wanted to worship like the nations.  However, this caused God to carry out their captivity and death sentence "beyond Babylon."
Genesis 49:8 Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise:
         thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.
Genesis 49:9 Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up:
        he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
Genesis 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
        until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Genesis 49:11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine;
         he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
Genesis 49:12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
Gal. 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man,
        but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

John marks as Anti-Christ those who do not believe what all of the Bible teaches:
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens:
         but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord,
        Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.

1Timothy 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1Timothy 2:5 For
        there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the man Christ Jesus;
1Timothy 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
1Timothy 2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
Gal. 1:3 Grace be to you and peace
        from God the Father,
         and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Gal. 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins,
        that he might deliver us from this present evil world,
        according to the will of God and our Father:

Jesus will not pray for the World: that is Cosmos or Kosmos and speaks to the people who connect music to the worship of the physical world which needs adorning.

Throughout the Bible musical instruments are the MARK that God has removed His grace: the speakers, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 are called sorcerers: Anathema meaning to be predestinated to the Lake of fire.

Gal. 1:3 Grace be to you and peace
        from God the Father,
         and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Gal. 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins,
        that he might deliver us from this present evil world,
        according to the will of God and our Father:

Jesus will not pray for the World: that is Cosmos or Kosmos and speaks to the people who connect music to the worship of the physical world which needs adorning.

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me;

and they have received them,
and have known surely that I came out from thee,
and they have believed that thou didst send me. John 17:8

Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. Ac.13:46

I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. John 17:9

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on ME through THEIR WORD; John 17:20


Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

A laded Burden is DEur. Supp. 20 so now their mothers would bury in the grave the dead, whom the spear has slain, but the victors prevent them and will not allow them to take up the corpses, holding the laws of the gods in no honor. [20] Here lies Adrastus on the ground with streaming eyes, sharing with them the burden of their prayer to me, and bemoaning the havoc of the sword and the sorry fate of the warriors whom he led from their homes. And he urges me to use entreaty to persuade my son [25] to take up the dead and help to bury them, either by winning words or force of arms, laying on my son and on Athens this task alone. Now it happened that I had left my house and come to offer sacrifice on behalf of the earth's crop [30] at this shrine, where first the fruitful corn showed its bristling shocks above the soil. And here at the holy altars of the two goddesses, Demeter and the Maiden, I wait, holding these sprays of foliage, a bond that does not bind, in compassion for [35] these childless mothers, gray with age, and in reverence for the sacred garlands. My herald has gone to the city, to call Theseus here, so that he may rid the land of that which grieves them, or loose these suppliant bonds, [40] with pious observance of the gods' will; for women should in all cases invoke the aid of men, women that are discreet.

A laded Burden is EAristoph. Peace 748 Chorus
The Chorus turns and faces the audience.
Undoubtedly the comic poet who [735] mounted the stage to praise himself in the parabasis would deserve to be handed over to the sticks of the beadles. Nevertheless, oh Muse, if it be right to esteem the most honest and illustrious of our comic writers at his proper value, permit our poet to say that he thinks he has deserved a glorious renown. First of all, he is the one who has compelled his rivals no longer [740] to scoff at rags or to war with lice; and as for those Heracleses, always chewing and ever hungry, he was the first to cover them with ridicule and to chase them from the stage; he has also dismissed that slave, whom one never failed to set weeping before you, [745] so that his comrade might have the chance of jeering at his stripes and might ask, “Wretch, what has happened to your hide? Has the lash rained an army of its thongs on you and laid your back waste?” After having delivered us from all these wearisome ineptitudes and these low buffooneries, he has built up for us a great art, like a palace with high towers, [750] constructed of fine phrases, great thoughts and of jokes not common on the streets. Moreover it's not obscure private persons or women that he stages in his comedies; but, bold as Heracles, it's the very greatest whom he attacks, undeterred by the fetid stink of leather or the threats of hearts of mud. He has the right to say, “I am the first ever dared to go straight for that beast with the sharp teeth [755] and the terrible eyes that flashed lambent fire like those of Cynna, surrounded by a hundred lewd flatterers, who spittle-licked him to his heart's content; it had a voice like a roaring torrent, the stench of a seal, the unwashed balls of a Lamia and the arse of a camel

Wife Do you refuse these gifts?

Plutus [795] I will accept them at your fireside, as custom requires. Besides, we shall thus avoid a ridiculous scene; it is not meet that the poet should throw dried figs and dainties to the spectators; it is a vulgar trick to make them laugh.

Jesus Christ died to REMOVE this burden: Click for Isaiah 28

Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Is.28:15

A vital focus of questioning was the world of the dead. The recently deceased might exert influence on the living for good or for bad. Offerings to the dead, which were required by custom, were intended, among other purposes, to make them well disposed. People occasionally deposited with their offerings a letter telling the deceased of their problems and asking for assistance. A few of these letters are complaints to the deceased person, alleging that he or she is afflicting the writer. This written communication with the dead was confined to the very few literate members of the population, but it was probably part of a more widespread oral practice. Some tombs of prominent people acquired minor cults that may have originated in frequent successful recourse to them for assistance. Britannica Online

The Marzeah in Amos 5

"The marzeah had an extremely long history extending at least from the 14th century B.C. through the Roman period. In the 14th century B.C., it was prominently associated with the ancient Canaanite city of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra), on the coast of Syria...

The marzeah was a pagan ritual that took the form of a social and religious association... Some scholars regard the funerary marzeah as a feast for--and with--deceased ancestors (or Rephaim, a proper name in the Bible for the inhabitants of Sheol)." (King, Biblical Archaeological Review, Aug, 1988, p. 35, 35)

"These five elements are: (1) reclining or relaxing, (2) eating a meat meal, (3) singing with harp or other musical accompaniment, (4) drinking wine and (5) anointing oneself with oil." (King, p. 37).

"we recognize the same elements: the sacrifices and libation, the cultic feast in which the congregation gets a share of food and drink after it has been blessed by the king, and the merry-making, now in the form of instrumental and vocal music. But the central act of the ritual, which was performed by the king, is called literally 'drinking' the god (Gurney, O. R. Some Aspects of Hittite Religion, p. 33-34, Oxford University Press, 1977)

"The normal order of events was a meal, followed by a drinking party. Entertainment might include anything from a rhetorcian or philosopher discoursing on some topic, to musical entertainment, to sexual dalliance."

"Plutarch implicitly contrasts a serious dinner featuring a sage as the after-dinner speaker with the other sorts of dinners--where sexual play with the girl flute-players or hetairae was common." (Witherington, Ben, Why Not Idol Meat, Bible Review, June 1994, p. 41-42).

-Hom. Od. 1.125 Heralds poured water over their hands, and maid-servants heaped by them bread in baskets, and youths filled the bowls brim full of drink; and they put forth their hands to the good cheer lying ready before them. [150] Now after the wooers had put from them the desire of food and drink, their hearts turned to other things, to song and to dance; for these things are the crown of a feast. And a herald put the beautiful lyre in the hands of Phemius, who sang perforce among the wooers; [155] and he struck the chords in prelude2 to his sweet lay. But Telemachus spoke to flashing-eyed Athena, holding his head close, that the others might not hear: “Dear stranger, wilt thou be wroth with me for the word that I shall say? These men care for things like these, the lyre and song, [160] full easily, seeing that without atonement they devour the livelihood of another, of a man whose white bones, it may be, rot in the rain as they lie upon the mainland, or the wave rolls them in the sea.

Any object so sacrificed or devoted to the Lord could not be redeemed (Num. 18:14; Lev. 27:28, 29); and hence the idea of exterminating was connected with the word. The Hebrew verb (haram) is frequently used of the extermination of idolatrous nations. It had a wide range of application. The anathema or herem was a person or thing irrevocably devoted to God (Lev. 27:21, 28); and "none devoted shall be ransomed. He shall surely be put to death" (27:29). The Hebrew word therefore carried the idea of devoted to destruction (Num. 21:2, 3; Josh. 6:17); and hence a majority of scholars have treated the word anathema similarly, generally as meaning a thing accursed. For example, in Deut. 7:26 an idol is called a herem = anathema, understood to mean a thing accursed

Sorry bout that but you will not be able to believe it: Time is short and that is why the Church of Christ thread tries to silence just quoting the Bible: music means to silence the voice of the victim.

Hebrews 12:25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh.
        For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth,
        much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: (the trumpet sound)
        but now he hath promised, saying,
        Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Hebrews 12:27 And this word, Yet once more,
        signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, t
        hat those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,
       let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

When these offerings were ready, Croesus sent them to Delphi, with other gifts besides: namely, two very large bowls, one of gold and one of silver. The golden bowl stood to the right, the silver to the left of the temple entrance. [2] These too were removed about the time of the temple's burning, and now the golden bowl, which weighs eight and a half talents and twelve minae, [mna= about 15 oz. Troy weight.] is in the treasury of the Clazomenians, and the silver bowl at the corner of the forecourt of the temple. This bowl holds six hundred nine-gallon measures: for the Delphians use it for a mixing-bowl at the feast of the Divine Appearance.  [The Theophania was a festival at Delphi, at which the statues of gods were shown.] [3] It is said by the Delphians to be the work of Theodorus of Samos, and I agree with them, for it seems to me to be of no common workmanship. Moreover, Croesus sent four silver casks, which stand in the treasury of the Corinthians, and dedicated two sprinkling-vessels, one of gold, one of silver. The golden vessel bears the inscription “Given by the Lacedaemonians,” who claim it as their offering. But they are wrong, [4] for this, too, is Croesus' gift. The inscription was made by a certain Delphian, whose name I know but do not mention, out of his desire to please the Lacedaemonians. The figure of a boy, through whose hand the water runs, is indeed a Lacedaemonian gift; but they did not give either of the sprinkling-vessels. [5] Along with these Croesus sent, besides many other offerings of no great distinction, certain round basins of silver, and a female figure five feet high, which the Delphians assert to be the statue of the woman who was Croesus' baker. Moreover, he dedicated his own wife's necklaces and girdles.
