Landon Saunders Lamentations Chapter One.  Defining the present Apostate Church
Lam 1:11 All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their pleasant things for meat to relieve the soul: see, O LORD, and consider; for I am become vile.
Lam 1:12 Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
When you wander to the Pacific you will be DENIED the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle which MARKS and terminates all of the actors.  Don't worry, Jude speaking of the Instrumental, Trinitarian, Perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai sounds the trumpet and says THEY ARE FOREORDAINED.  Of the unity in diversity Paul says of the Cunning Craftsmen or Sophists-speakers, singers, instrument players--THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

"Spiritual Rhythms: Scrolls for Robust Salvation". We focus this year on these often-ignored books of the Old Testament: the “five scrolls”—Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther—that point to ATTEMPTS God’s  to bring WHOLENESS to our daily lives.

God delivered his Breath or Spirit without METRON or musical meter. That is why Bible haters have to fabricate their own songs when the operative word for the Masculine Tribe is SPEAK or READ.

The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm.
        If it is metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial,
        and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention,
        since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence;
just as, when the public criers ask, “Whom does the emancipated choose for his patron?” the children shout “Cleon.” If it is without rhythm, it is unlimited, whereas it ought to be limited (but not by meter); for that which is unlimited is unpleasant and unknowable. Now all things are limited by number, and the number belonging to the form of diction is rhythm, of which the meters are divisions.  Wherefore prose must be rhythmical, but not metrical, otherwise it will be a poem. Nor must this rhythm be rigorously carried out, but only up to a certain point.

STRABO. In Hesychius, the name is Kissaioi. The epithet applied to the land of Cush in Aeschylus is Kissinos. The above accounts for one of the unexplained titles of Apollo. "Kisseus Apollon" is plainly "The Cushite Apollo.

or again, the name may refer to his musical attributes, and then, as in akolouthos, and akoitis, and in many other words the a is supposed to mean "together," so the meaning of the name Apollo will be "moving together,"

whether in the poles of heaven as they are called, or in the harmony of song, which is termed concord,
because he moves all together by an harmonious power, as astronomers and
musicians ingeniously declare.

And he is the God who presides over harmony, and makes all things move together, both among Gods and among men. And as in the words akolouthos and akoitis the a is substituted for an o, so the name Apollon is equivalent to omopolon; only the second l is added in order to avoid the ill-omened sound of destruction (apolon).

Aristotle On rhythm in Prose  Logos, the Regulative Principle OUTLAWS musical meter or metron: that's good since God didn't supply any.

In the paraphrase of the Introduction I have already given an outline of the contents of this chapter and their connexion, with references and some details, pp. 303—306. And on rhythm in general, and its application to prose, there is an Appendix (C), pp. 379—392; in which is a full account of its original and derived significations in the first part, and of its distinction from metron in the second. The commentary on this chapter will therefore deal principally with the details of the language, allusions, and such particulars as require explanation, which are omitted in the paraphrase....harmonia  ‘that particular kind of harmony which is adapted to ordinary conversation’,

MOSES WROTE ABOUT EVEN AFTER ISRAEL FELL INTO INSTRUMENTAL-TRINITARIAN-PERVERTED IDOLATRY AND WAS SENTENCED TO BABYLON AND BABYLONISH WORSHIP.  Moses wrote to warn a nation conditionally sentenced back to Babylon: that condition elapsed when the elders "fired" God and demanded a king like the nations so that they could worship like the nations.

However, Eve is the warning to identify the end-time Babylonian Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17). Her priests are "dogs or the concision" and "lusted-after fruits." Amos identifys the same people as the mark that "God had been there and would not pass by again." Amos 8

Eve is NOT about godly women in any sense. She is Zoe daughter of Sophia the mother goddess defining the musical and gender twisted story of ALL religionism.  She was known as the BEAST and female instructing principle.

Paul said that she was WHOLLY SEDUCED in a sexual sense and that the MAN she got from "god" was Cain who was OF that wicked one.  The Babylon mother of harlots shows up again in Revelation 17 and her fruitish ministers are speakers, singers or instrument players. The piping sound of the millstone probably denotes prostitutes.  They are called SORCERERS who HAD deceived the world once and they will finally be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Gen. 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Hislop notes that: "The Primeval or Creative god was mystically represented as Androgyne, as combining in his own person both sexes (Ibid.), being therefore both Janus and Cybele at the same time.

In opening up the Mysteries, therefore, of this mysterious divinity, it was natural that the Pontifex should bear the key of both these divinities. Janus himself, however, as well as Pluto, was often represented with more than one key.

"This Phaethon (son of Helios), or Lucifer, who was cast down is further proved to be Janus; for Janus is called "Pater Matutinus" (HORACE); and the meaning of this name will appear in one of its aspects when the meaning of the name of the Dea Matuta is ascertained. Dea Matuta signifies "The kindling or Light-bringing goddess," * and accordingly, by Priscian, she is identified with Aurora."

Tac. Ann. 14.60 The woman who had long been Nero's mistress and ruled him first as a paramour, then as her husband, instigated one of Octavia's servants to accuse her of an intrigue with a slave. The man fixed on as the guilty lover was one by name Eucærus, an Alexandrine by birth, skilled in singing to the flute. As a consequence, her slave-girls were examined under torture, and though some were forced by the intensity of agony into admitting falsehoods, most of them persisted in upholding the virtue of their mistress. One of them said, in answer to the furious menaces of Tigellinus, that Octavia's person was purer than his mouth. Octavia, however, was dismissed under the form of an ordinary divorce.

Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi or Tammuz in Ezekiel 8

Landon Saunders Lamentations 1

Sara Barton uses 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.
Jesus as HOLY SPIRIT just flat mentioned Pulpit Preachers.  Rather:

Eph. 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

You don't feed sheep in the "holy places." The Word, Logos or Regulative principle is the ONLY resource. The Lambs are fed by the words SPEAK or READ that which is written for our learning. The Logos outlaws any personal opinions or experiences which takes the lust for glory out of reach for men or women.  The Logos outlaws rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting. Jesus identified these as Hypocritical Acts (Isaiah 29; Ezekiel 33).

Jesus outlawed cunning craftsmen or sophists who are speakers, singers or instrument players. Paul spoke for Christ by identifying these craftsmen as LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Eph. 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph. 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of THE FAITH, [The Word, Logos, Regulative Principle]and of the KNOWLELDGE of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Eph. 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro,
        and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
        by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph. 4:15 BUT SPEAKING speaking the truth in love,
        may grow up into him in all things,
        which is the head, even Christ:

Jude, speaking of the PLAY or Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted Idolatry warned that they are still raging and are FOREORDAINED.

The Spirit OF Christ in Isaiah said of those who do NOT speak the Word (Dabar-Logos) THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM

BECAUSE there is no ROLE or DOLE for a Preaching Pastor who feeds him or herself.

Ezek. 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Ezek. 34:8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
Ezek. 34:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

If Sara or any female wants the only role as an evangelist with the command to GO and preach only what Jesus commanded her to teach and observe, the WORLD is waiting for preachers who flock to Pepperdine to GO.  Jesus authorizes her a STAVE to beat off the sexual assaults and a BAG by which she may save up leftovers from her owed LIVING. A living is food for the day.  Anything more proves to the godly women in the church that she wants to eat up their homes or living.
Sara Barton: 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,
[from Apostate males]
        it seems like a good time to let a WISE woman speak
about sexual activity that’s right and good,
Male and female are SILENT in the assembly So that ALL might be SAFE and come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH. Sara can speak about explicit sex 167 hours a week if that is her Driving Purpose.  However, Paul wants her silent because the women were always the oracles in pagan temples, prophesying (with instruments) and claiming to speak for the gods in exchange for time spent with the thousand prostitutes in Corinth.  They joked about fleecing the sailors of the money being earned to feed their children.

All of the SILENCE demanded of a few strange men and women who claimed authority to MEDIATE in song and sermon.

1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

Sara Barton: 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.
Isa 42:1 BEHOLD my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth;
        I have put my spirit UPON HIM: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. [Goyim, nations]

Isa 42:2 He shall NOT cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street

He got tricked by his daughter in law into engaging in the Hieros Gamos defined in the Song of Solomon,

For I gave my staff, that is, the stay of my tribe; and my girdle, that is, my power; and my diadem, that is, the glory of my kingdom.

Then I repented for these things, and took no wine or flesh until my old age, nor did I behold any joy.

And the angel of God showed me that for ever do women bear rule over king and beggar alike;

and from the king they take away his glory,
and from the
valiant man his strength,
and from the
beggar even that little which is the stay of his poverty.

Plut. Luc. 42. But what he did in the establishment of a library deserves warm praise. He got together many books, and they were well written, and his use of them was more honourable to him than his acquisition of them. His libraries were thrown open to all, and the cloisters surrounding them, and the study-rooms, were accessible without restriction to the Greeks, who constantly repaired thither as to an hostelry of the Muses, and spent the day with one another, in glad escape from their other occupations. [2] Lucullus himself also often spent his leisure hours there with them, walking about in the cloisters with their scholars, and he would assist their statesmen in whatever they desired. And in general his house was a home and prytaneium for the Greeks who came to Rome. He was fond of all philosophy, and well-disposed and friendly towards every school, but from the first he cherished a particular and zealous love for the Academy



Because of Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted Idolatry at Mount Sinai God turned the Israelites over to WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST.  They were beyond redemption and the later Civil-Military-Clergy operated the Temple or Ziggurat at a place called spiritual SODOM.


Laura Buffington: Sex and Salvation: The Hieros Gamos
With sex playing such a prominent role in the art and life of our culture, the church would be wise to reclaim the metaphor of sex as salvation. Making the whole story of our lives about the salvation found in physical intimacy is to miss the grander picture of intimate salvation promised to Beloved Humanity by God the Lover.


So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. Rom 1:15

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
          for it is the power of God unto salvation
          to every one that believeth;
          to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Rom 1:16
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all
ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Rom 1:18

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. Rom 1:19

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; [Theotes: Divine Nature] so that they are without excuse: Rom 1:20

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith
Rom 1:17
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Rom 1:23

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Rom 1:24

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Rom 1:25

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: Rom 1:26

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Rom 1:27

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Rom 1:28


Sara Barton uses 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. 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.

§ Plato on the Symposium i. Summary of the Argument.

First: 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

Second: and amuse themselves by logoi, are unanimously agreed to. Then Eryximachus propounds an idea of Phaedrus, that Eros is the best possible theme for encomia, and suggests that each of the party in turn, commencing with Phaedrus, should now deliver an encomium on Eros. This suggestion is applauded by Socrates. Of the encomia the most noteworthy were the following:—

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

(1) In all Greek states except Athens the nomos 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 independenc
e (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.


Luke 1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation
        for us in the house of his servant David;
Luke 1:70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets,
        which have been since the world began:
Luke 1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies,
        and from the hand of all that hate us;
Luke 1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
        and to remember his holy covenant;
Luke 1:73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
Luke 1:74 That he would grant unto us,
        that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies
        might serve him without fear,
Luke 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
Luke 1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest:
        for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
Luke 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God;
        whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
        to guide our feet into the way of peace.

A Church of Christ is not built upon SOPHIA or strange sexuality manifest by rhetoric, music or any self-exhibition. Corrupting the Word or selling learning at retail is defined as prostitution:

A Church of Christ is built upon LOGOS or God's Regulative principle EXCLUDING the hypocratic and effeminate arts and crafts:

Eph. 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit [the WORD or LOGOS] unto the Father.
Eph. 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
        but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph. 2:20 And are built upon [educated by] the foundation
        of the apostles and prophets,
        Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

AUGUSTINE:  50. From this, therefore, let them understand that the matter is not left obscure or doubtful even to the slowest and dullest minds: from this, I say, let these perverse applauders of Christ and execrators of the Christian religion understand that the disciples of Christ have learned and taught, in opposition to their gods, precisely what the doctrine of Christ contains.

For the God of Israel is found to have enjoined in the books of the prophets that all these objects which those men are minded to worship should be held in abomination and be destroyed, while He Himself is now named the God of the whole earth, through the instrumentality of Christ and the Church of Christ, exactly as He promised so long time ago.

Plat. Phaedrus 245a And a third kind of possession and madness comes from the Muses. This takes hold upon a gentle and pure soul, arouses it and inspires it to songs and other poetry, and thus by adorning countless deeds of the ancients educates later generations. But he who without the divine madness comes to the doors of the Muses, confident that he will be a good poet by art, meets with no success, and the poetry of the sane man vanishes into nothingness before that of the inspired madmen

THAT IS WHY THE NORMAL-QUIET MALE AND THE "PROPHESIER" WOMEN ARE TO BE SILENT. So that all might be SAFE and come to a knowledge of the truth.


as in all churches of the saints.
        Let your women keep silence in the churches:
        for it is not permitted unto them to speak;
        but they are commanded to be under obedience,
        as also saith the law. 1Corinthians 14:34

The ONLY ordained task was to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word only. Everyone else was to be SILENT. For some reason it was women and effeminate males who violated this rule in paganism.

Xen. Apol. 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?

The WORD is the LOGOS and it is the Regulative Principle. It is law because it outlaws personal opinions, personal experiences, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting such as the self-exhibition of the cute and popular whereas speaking the WORD like Jesus would make the HATED and murdered.

Miriam was a prophetess because she was an Egyptian and as a virtual princess would serve Hathor or the female Apis or golden calf. The musical idolatry at Mount Sinai got Israel turned over to worship the starry host (Acts 7 etal) and sentenced to captivity and death in Babylon: that is THE LAW.

Miriam means:

Miryam (h4813) meer-yawm'; from 4805; rebelliously; Mirjam, the name of two Israelitesses: - Miriam.
(h4805) mer-ee'; from 4784; bitterness, i. e. (fig.) rebellion; concr. bitter, or rebellious: - bitter, rebellion, rebellious).

Marah (h4784) maw-raw'; a prim. root; to be (caus. make) bitter (or unpleasant); (fig.) to rebel (or resist; causat. to provoke): - bitter, change, be disobedient, disobey, grievously, provocation, provoke (- ing), (be) rebel (against, -lious).

"In the first place, it will be noticed from the account of the triumphant rejoicing on the shore of the Red Sea that the men sang only: 'Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake saying.'" (Girardeau, George, p. 33)

"In the second place, it was Miriam and the women who used instruments of music on the occasion: 'And Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went after her with timbrels and with dances." (George Girardeau, Presbyterian.).

The PLAY at Mount Sinai would have been led by women prophetesses. That violation of The Book of the Covenant which was SILENT about the use of Egyptian music was seen by God as their prayer and He TURNED THEM OVER TO WORSHIP THE STARRY HOST.

"The triumphal hymn of Moses had unquestionably a religious character about it; but the employment of music in religious services, though idolatrous, is more distinctly marked in the festivities which attended the erection of the golden calf." (Smith's Bible Dictionary, Music, p. 589).

When Miriam took the lead over Aaron and claimed that her "prophesying" was the WORD of God, He smacked her with leprosy

"She was "the sister of Moses, was the eldest of that sacred family; and she first appears, probably as a young girl, watching her infant brother's cradle in the Nile, (Exodus 2:4) and suggesting her mother as a nurse. ver. 7. After the crossing of the Red Sea "Miriam the prophetess" is her acknowledged title. ch. (Exodus 15:20) The prophetic power showed itself in her under the same form as that which it assumed in the days of Samuel and David,

poetry, accompanied with music and processions. ch. (Exodus 15:1-19)

"She took the lead, with Aaron, in the complaint against Moses for his marriage with a Cushite, (Numbers 12:1,2) and for this was attacked with leprosy. This stroke and its removal, which took place at Hazeroth, form the last public event of Miriam's life. ch. (Numbers 12:1-15) She died toward the close of the wanderings at Kadesh, and was buried there. ch. (Numbers 20:1) (B.C. about 1452.) (Smith's Bible Dictionary)

God warned:

Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do. Deut 24:8

Remember what the Lord thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt. Deut 24:9

1Corinthians 14:35 And if they will learn any thing,

     Let them ask their husbands at home:
     for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Beyond the absolute PATTERN of Reading or Speaking the Logos or regulative principle it is a SHAME for men to so speak. However, we are told that singing and playing marked one as "drunk, perverted or just having fun." it was not a warning needed for Word Centered Males.

The Effeminate Worship Leader

There’s no real easy way to put it. I could beat around the bush and sugar coat it a bit, but in the end it would probably come off as more offensive than necessary. I’ll try to look at all sides to squash unnecessary offense so that the offense that will inevitably come might be helpful rather than harmful. But I want to address something that I’ve noticed and I am sure many others have observed and that is the Effeminate Worship Leader.

You’ve seen him. You know who I’m talking about. A little too sensitive, overly-emotional, flamboyant is a term that comes to mind. Usually it is seen as just an “artsy” thing. For some reason—and I just can’t put my finger on why—these guys are everywhere in Evangelical Christianity. I know I’m not completely off base because it has unfortunately become a stereotype. But I’m not just basing this off of stereotypes; I’ve noticed it many times personally and have had conversations with others who have noticed it as well. In some circles it has become a kind of in-house joke that the worship leader is metrosexual. And a metrosexual, if you are unfamiliar with the term, is basically a dude that acts like a chick (ie. effeminate). To make my point here’s a link to a humorous Christian satire site that provides a scorecard so you can rate how metrosexual your worship leader is. (I scored a 4 out of a hundred some points by the way…)
