NACC 2013 VICTORIOUS Review

5.06.17 When Independents get in bed with Apostate Ex-Church of Christ universities they may give birth to serpents:

5.06.17 A Sectarian or Heretic according to Romans 16 are Self-Pleasers: The Greek is Ariskos or Placeo which means "creating mental excitement through religious rituals": That is defined as rhetoric, singing, playing instruments acting or other "religious observations to which Jesus said the kingdom does not come. 
This has the same meaning as laded burdens which are songs intended to induce some sens of awe or warning."  The beyond-redemption mark as with the instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted idolatry at Mount Sinai is of a pseudo-nobility class who fleeces the poor and performs rituals on the REST day: Sabbath or REST is the opposite of religious rituals and thus despises or blasphemes the true Lord-God who rescued the Hebrews and others from the Sumerian and other Towers of Babbling by "breathing Spirit" or inspired understanding in Adam who was an Aborigine or OF the DUST people.  There are of the WORLD, the Kosmos or Mundus, the ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil.

Pepperdine bonded with the NACC had their COSMIC worship and this year are performing the HIEROS GAMOS as the rise of the Babylon Mother of Harlots in Revelation 17: she uses "lusted after fruits" as in Amos 8 Purpose Driven to cause the fleeced lambs to hunger and thirst for the WORD but are prevented by MUSIC IN THE HOLY PLACES.  In Revelation 18 ALL religious craftsmen such as speakers, singers, instrument players or "grinders" HAD ONCE deceived the whole world. Now, this is the mark of evil spirits OF the World or those Jesus said were from BENEITH are marked as SORCERERS and will be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Mike Cope 2017 PBL The Hieros Gamos Theme Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their RULERSbecause they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
 
Mike Cope: "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.

HOWEVER, FOR READERS: According to Philo, the gods of the pagans exploit this weakness of men. For the sake of a better effect, and with the intention of more easily cheating their devotes, that they have set their lies to melodies, RHYTHMS and meters.."

SEE 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. I regularly read Song of Songs with college students in a Bible course I teach. And in that conversation, I own up to the fact that I like sex, that twenty-five plus years into marriage, my husband and I are still into each other, still engage in pillow talk with each other, and that we are learning with each passing year how to be more intimate with each other – sexually, emotionally, and spiritually.
        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.

The MARK of those from BENEITH who Violate the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle is that the SHOOT you in the heart and then blame you for bleeding on their Tutu..

Laura Buffington SEX and SALVATION: the Song of Solomon or 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.

Matt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Jesus and Paul defined that as the PROPHETS and other prophecies concerning Messiah: that is the meaning of Holy Scripture. 

THE REAL DECLARATION AND ADDRESS

5. That with respect to the commands and ordinances of our Lord Jesus Christ, where the Scriptures are silent as to the express time or manner of performance, IF any such there be,  no human authority has power to interfere, in order to supply the supposed deficiency by making laws for the Church; nor can anything more be required of Christians in such cases, but only that they so observe these commands and ordinances as will evidently answer the declared and obvious end of their institution.

Much less has any [16] human authority power to IMPOSE new commands or ordinances upon the Church, which our Lord Jesus Christ has not ENJOINED. Nothing ought to be RECEIVED into the faith or worship of the Church, or be made a term of communion among Christians, that is not as old as the New Testament.

6. That although inferences and deductions from Scripture premises, when fairly inferred, may be truly called the doctrine of God's holy word, yet are they not formally binding upon the consciences of Christians farther than they perceive the connection, and evidently see that they are so; for their faith must not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power and veracity of God. Therefore, no such deductions can be made terms of communion but do properly belong to the after and progressive edification of the ChurchHence, it is evident that no such deductions or inferential truths ought to have any place in the Church's confession.

THOSE WHO IMPOSE VIOLATE THE BIBLICAL AND CHURCH HISTORY ROLE OF SCRIPTURE-ONLY AS HAVING ANY PLACE IN A CHURCH OF CHRIST.

INSTRUMENTALISTS HAVE NO COMMAND OR EXAMPLES OR NEED ANY REMOTE INFERENCES: IN Ephesians 4 of the Cunning Craftsmen or SOPHISTS who are speakers beyond the TEXT or that which is written, singers or instrument players: Paul said that they are marked as LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

3.30.16  
Patterns.Legalism.and.Grace.Alexander.Campbell.John.Mark.Hicks.html

Having a half-century of my "investments" with the "lord" transitioned into the "instrumental worship" groups entices me to quote some reasons why the Church of Christ (the Rock) from the wilderness had "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric" excluded from the School of the Word. This quarantined the godly Jews from the Civil-Military-Clergy complex which God abandoned to worship the starry host: from the "service" of the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites this was the Apollon or Abaddon system.
The Israelites fell into instrumental-trinitarian idolatry at Mount Sinai and God removed The Book of the Covenant of Grace from the Civil-Military-Clergy.  In the Second Law given because of Transgression they were warned that their sin beyond redemption was conditional:

Deut. 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
Deut. 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

Chrysostom's Commentary on Galatians:

Galatians 5:1.-"With freedom did Christ set us free; stand fast therefore.115 ."

Ver. 12. "I would that they which unsettle you would even cut themselves off." And he says well "that unsettle you."A man that is heretical after the first and second admonition refuse." (Tit. iii: 10) If they will,  let them not only be circumcised, but mutilated. Where then are those who dare to mutilate themselves; seeing that they draw down the Apostolic curse, and accuse the workmanship of God, and take part with the Manichees?


Chrysostom understood that the pagans used vocal or instrumental noise to stir up or create anxiety so that they could steal your food money. Christ outlawed this in Isaiah 55.  Christ outlawed BLASPHEMY in the modern context of saying that God commanded instrumental distractions when  He DID NOT.

But if you will not allow this,  why do you not mutilate the tongue for blasphemy, the hands for rapine, the feet for their evil courses, in short, the whole body?

12.03.15 Instrumental and Trinitarian idolatry at Mount Sinai was a sin beyond redemption because the people ascribed to The Book of The Covenant but rose up in PLAY.  Acts 7, Romans 10 and 1 Corinthians 10 is the EXAMPLE or PATTERN against the worship of Demons. Apis the golden calf was the symbol of the Egyptian and other trinities repudiated by all of Scripture

Revelation 18F: they are all called Sorcerers who HAD once deceived the whole world.
They WILL BE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

The Bad News for the "Sectarians" Inclusives:

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.

Paul outlawed self pleasure: Areskos or Placeo including all performing arts Jesus called hypocrites: speakers for hire (hirelings), singers or instrument players. They are the MARK of people who do not intend to speak "that which is written for our learning" and people who do not intend to obey the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle.

WHAT IS A HERETIC OR SECTARIAN? God will not let His Word be sold: the same word defines prostitutes and fish mongers. The DENY the LOGOS or Regulative principle and are therefore ANTI-CHRISTS.

Who infiltrated and intends to lie, cheat and steal your property and flock? No one can find anything so vile and blasphemous in the historic church commanded not to engage in "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or self-speak" when the church (ekklesia) assembled (synagogued) to Rest (school), read and rehearse the Word of God. That is the ONE PIECE PATTERN because the Lord's Supper is a teaching activity which SHOULD cause men and women to sit down and be silent.

In sacrificial systems the HERETIC was the priest who lifted up the lambs to cut their throats. The Levites who made noise and never "music" made the lambs (including Jesus) dumb before the slaughter. Their title in Greek is PARASITE. Anyone not teaching that which has been taught is a cunning craftsman or sophists are called sorcerers by John and because they are OF OLD who HAD deceived the whole world once they will be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Heresy as Ariskos in Romans 15 means to plot to "Choose other people's property for your own." Doest thou Rob Temples? Go to it: Scripture says that strong delusions or religious performances claimed to be from or for God is the result of STRONG DELUSIONS. The REST Jesus giveth and the progressives Taketh away.

The Good News for "Sectarians"

2Pet. 2:2 And many [polus far the most, ecumenical] shall follow their pernicious ways; [aselgeia licetiousnes,  insolence, demagogue] by reason of whom the WAY [hodos pattern] of TRUTH shall be evil spoken of.[blasphemabitur]

The Bad News for Sectarians

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.

Revelation 18 says that the craftsmen [staff-parasites], speakers, singers, instrument players are SORCERERS who HAD ONCE deceived the Whole World and they will finally be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

"But he's a worthless man," said he, "otherwise he wouldn't be so good a piper.

O. E. Payne Said Instrumental Music is Scriptural 1920.  Payne quotes a large body of literature to prove that the PSALLO word is the COMMAND for instrumental music so-called AS worship. This book came from an earlier collection and is acknowledged as the reason that the NACC did not sect out of the Disciples completely.  Payne is used by all who demand that Churches of Christ which were never "joined" with the Disciples must impose instruments in order that they can unify with the instrumentalists.  Never in any of the quotations does "psallo" mean anything more than to pluck or smite a bowstring, harpstring or a "hair" with the fingers but never with a plectrum. In all of Payne's examples PLUCK is followed with naming WHAT to pluck. Even then, to make a twanging sound does not make music since "melody as tunefulness belongs to the 19th century." Furthermore, none of these examples have anything to do with the assembly and everything to do with making war or making indecent "worship."

Payne quotes a book which re-interprets Clement to command the harp: the title of the chapter is "How to conduct ourselves at feasts."  IN CHURCH Clement understood that the assembly is a WORD OF GOD ONLY assembly called over and over a SCHOOL which is where Disciples go.

After having paid reverence to the discourse about God, they leave within [the church] what they have heard. And outside they foolishly amuse themselves with impious playing, and amatory quavering, occupied with flute-playing, and dancing, and intoxication, and all kinds of trash.

THIS IS NOT DIRECTED TO THE MAJORITY OF CHURCH MEMBERS.  They grasp that all discord among peaceable believers is caused by people with a driving ambition to as Garrison said: "Include ALL OF CHRISTENDOM under one organization.

Godly Disciples of Christ never sow discord: that is why the Campbells knew that the only way to prevent massive sowing of discord was not to join any human INSTITUTION which by hook or crook manages to intimidate member preachers into following the party line dispensed by the power, in the words of Mein Kampf, being part of a massed movement which by its massness and list of those permitted to BUY AND SELL, causes them to gamble away their kingdom. Lucky for the isolated disciple, Jesus said that the kingdom does not come with observation meaning religious services performing ACTS of legalism and calling it "worship" which can only happen IN THE SPIRIT as it gives heed (the only worshiip word) to TRUTH which is the Word or Logos or the Regulative Principle. If there was a single man capable of mediating the Mind of God then Jesus would not have to died as a PATTERN for use to die to externals and engage in spiritual or rational worship.

These links are at another page: wanting to restore the Witchcraft of Cane Ridge and the practices of Stark in the Stark-Warlick debate, David Young plots to confiscate the new mega church for Singing, Playing instruments, clapping, hugging and kissing.  Of course, he must also demand crawling on all fours, barking up trees, fighting over garbage and other antics. When most of the people understood that they had been manipulated into what would get you burned in earlier, more literate societies, they swore off religionists of all typed.

People will never get over the abuse heaped on them by Daniel Sommer who "sowed discord" by refusing to let the instrumentalist confiscate that new, red brick church house.  It's hard to do "unity" with Society Men who really mean, "You do instruments and we can be united."

LINKS TO A FEW STEPS TO THE LAKE OF FIRE;  You may read the whole review of David Young's marking without losing this Fulfilment of Prophecy which began c. 4000 when because of MUSICAL IDOLATRY Moses defined the 6 DAYS until Abaddon (the name of the Levites service) or Apollyon being unleashed along with the locusts or muses.  Apollyon is identified in the Classics referenced by John as the MUSICAL WORSHIP LEADER including FEMALE worship leaders.

John calls them SORCERERS who HAD deceived the whole world once: that is why Moses wrote: In the beginning the elohim cast down or profaned the whole world.  However, Christ in Isaiah while defining the REST both inclusively and exclusively to EXCLUDE all of the hypocriitic or parasitic roles, said that JEHOVAH did not create the world in that Mesopotamian-Institutionalized state but HE (singular) created it to be inhabited with all of the FREE resource for living WITHOUT a Fertility Prophet or preacher to CONNECT them with God.

THE FIREY DESTINY OF THOSE WHO SOW MUSICAL OR RHETORICAL DISCORD

The Late Dr. Roger R. Chambers warned about the "

the territory around the pulpit has long since been claimed by

practical mysticism,
professional music, and
pop psychology.

The Sissification of the Church. The universal trend is for Church to surrender to culture, and our culture is a sissified one. That's the word, not feminine. Modern so-called feminism is not feminine;

it is little more than broken womanhood crying out for identity and significance.
As a culture removes itself from God, its
masculine virtue fades and a twisted femaleness takes over.

That's why homosexuality is the end of the line in the mind of God.

Good men become bad men, but when men stop being men and women stop being women, the creation image is destroyed and all is lost. The modern Church is being sissified. It whispers repentance and shouts forgiveness. Permissiveness reigns falsely in the name of grace.

Dr. Chambers was kinder than the Spirit OF Christ when He warned about women and boys ruling over you in Isaiah 3.

Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them.
        O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

The sounds of the millstone are the piping sounds which also located the local prostitute: all selling of that which is Not the Word is called corrupting the Word and is defined by Paul and the Civil Greek society as prostitution.
Some of the Once-Christian colleges have become MONKISH with "spiritual formation" and Ignatian Retreats at monasteries.  Ignatius, Jesuit, was the Nazi's PATTERN for converting or executing.  All priesthoods and religious operatives have been gender conflicted and they are called PARASITES.  That is why Jesus said that His kingdom does not come with observation meaning "religious rituals" which are about 100% Ceremonial Legalism fleeching and depriving the flock of the Word of God as the ONLY mark of being a Christian or a Disciple.
Richard Burton Far from the preaching of the puerile and puritanically minded who would believe that sex for any purpose other than reproduction is sinful and demonic, "this experience, or at least an approach to it, is the ultimate aim of all religion, the ultimate reference of all myth and rite. Joseph Campbell, The Masks of God: Primitive Mythology, pp. 50-57] It is the solvent of isolation, a means of moving beyond the normal bounds of human consciousness to touch into COSMIC forces, and thereby unite with the whole of life. Yes indeed, Ganymede’s thighs do set the divine light of ZEUS afire and, in the deliverance, GANYMEDE becomes the cupbearer of the gods.

The older of the KABIRI was identified with the Horned God, DIONYSOS, and the younger with the Horned God PAN's father, the Greek Trickster HERMES. [new Hermeneutics] Their cult was early on merged with those of Demeter and Ceres resulting in two sets of THE MYSTERY RELIGIONS. The early Greek geographer, Strabo, identifies the KABIRI as the hierophant priests, often transvestites presiding over the mysteries as ministers of the goddess Hecate. And as these "showers of sacred things" they were also the cross-dressing MEGABYZOS of the goddess Artemis at Ephesos, and, elsewhere, in service of the goddess Aphrodite/Astarte.


The physiological act of sex and orgasm not only greatly enhances the prospects, but also fires up further excitement. "Repeatedly induced states of orgasmic collapse can produce, and have been used to produce, states of deep trance." This is precisely the sexual purpose of an ORGY as religious rite, and, in part, what the Greek God APOLLO fed CYPARISSUS in the wilds. The ORGIA, from which our word orgy is derived, of THE MYSTERY RELIGIONS of DIONYSOS and his homosexual SATYRS, were (in addition to the magic mushrooms and other psychoactive potions) rituals of this kind.

The DAKTYLS, being the Greek word for "fingers," are the humans depicted as spirits born from Gaia pressing her fingers into the ground. It is said that the first wise men descended from the DAKTYLS. Were they the first to introduce language back in 500,000 B.C.? Homo sapien, recall, does mean "wise or intelligent man." We'll probably never know, but they did invent the notes of the musical scale and introduced musical instruments into the Pelasgian region. As soothsayers, sorcerers, and conjurers their magical practices and mysteries traveled to Italy and Greece.

The original EROS, one of the oldest of the androgynous Greek gods, was not some mischievous boy shooting his toy bow and arrows at the grown-ups on Valentine's Day, but an awe-inspiring universal force, which, as the Greek Hesiod said, "unnerves the limbs and overcomes the mind and wise counsels of all gods and men." The androgynous love goddess Aphrodite, who some think was EROS' mother.
IF BOTH MEN AND WOMEN SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO THE PREACHING OF THE WORD BY BEING READ FOR COMFORT AND LEARNING THAN WE CAN "ALL BE SAVED AND COME TO A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH."

The MONKS in the monastery or a once-Christian Bible college near you get NOTHING by meditating on ONE WORD until a spirit person gives you the REAL truth.  I

Paul demands that BOTH male and female be quiet and silent.  Only then can the command of Christ from the wilderness onward be obeyed: to PREACH the word by READING the word for comfort and doctrine.  That is the only PUBLIC SPEAKER for A School of Christ:

In the environment in which Christianity arose was surcharged with such phenomena (raving prophecy). In the Greek oracles messages were uttered by priests or priestesses in a state of ecstasy,

consciousness being in abeyance, and it was necessary to interpret them to the laity, as both Plutarch and Heraclitus testify... In the orgies of the cult of Dionysus music, dancing, drink, and other means were employed to supereninduce the ecstatic state, in which the devotees ate raw flesh, disported themselves with frenzied enthusiasm in the forests, and indulged in wild phallic excesses.

The ecstatic person was 'in the divinity' and out of normal consciousness. Cicero makes prophecy and madness practically synonymous." (Clark, Elmer T., The Small Sects in America, p. 86, Abingdon)

"The religious ecstasy induced by music expressed itself either in an outburst of emotions, thus giving rise to religious catharsis, or in a transfer to the state of PROPHECY.

Note that a prophet or prophesy means to MAKE SELF A PROPHET: they might prophesy the end of the world today but that does not meant that they are TRUE prophets. A writing prophet has been mouth to mouth with the Spirit of Christ.  Thereafter, we prophesy  by REPEATING that which has been written.

"In this way MUSIC became an important factor in divination. In the mysteries of the MAGNA MATER this relationship between MUSIC and DIVINATION is particularly clear. [The Serpent in the garden was a Musical Enchanter or Diviner: now, SHE has moved in]

"Through the din of tambourines, cymbals (locusts) and flutes the ecstatic worshiper of the GODDESS prophesied the future to those present.

"This relationship also explains why the expression for "making music" and "prophesying" was often identical in the ancient tongues. origen contra celsum 8.67. (Quasten, Johannes, Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, p. 39)

"One of the greatest of all Greek dramas, The Bacchae powerfully dramatizes the
           conflict between the emotional and rational sides of the human psyche.
           When the people of Thebes deny the existence of the god Dionysos, he punishes them
                      by unleashing the full force of female sexuality,
                      thereby destroying social order and driving them to certain tragedy.

Jesus warned that Doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge. The method universally recognized is to use music "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  The YOU or little people would never deliberately try to manufacture an institution sowing wisdom and all are afflicted by self-speakers with no role and no dole: the command is to teach that which has been taught. That would allow people of diverse private opinions to assemble according to Christ in the wilderness and the Campbells as:

CHURCH is A School of Christ. The Word or Logos is the Regulative Principle to be PREACHED by being READ.
WORSHIP is Reading and musing the Word of God.  Ephesians 5 commands that we SPEAK that which is written and the ODE and PSALLO are SILENT as Paul commanded in 1 Corinthians 14

Zechariah 2:13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.
Speaking in Tongues includes the "tongues" of wind instruments which CANNOT teach and cannot be interpreted. Therefore, if you cannot INTERPRET the rocky-rolly praise singing with or without instruments the absolute NEVER SILENT COMMAN IS:
1Corinthians 14:26 How is it then, brethren? when YE (contrary to Paul) come together,
        everyone of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation.
        Let all things be done unto edifying. (education)
1Corinthians 14:28 But if there be no interpreter,
        let him keep silence in the church;
and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Consistent with the hostile attack from about 1890 to the present, David Young blasphemes the Holy Spirit OF Christ who defined a Church of Christ (the Rock) and in the Prophets radically condemning musical machines as having the power of sorcery or soothsaying (Miriam and the Levites).

9.25. 13
APOLLO, ABADDON, APOLLYON IS THE LEADERS OF THE MUSICIANS.

Mousagetēs 1 doric for Mousēgetēs leader of the Muses, Lat. Musagetes, of Apollo, Plat. 1 Mous-a_getēs, ou, ho,

Strabo Geography [-10.3.10] And on this account Plato, and even before his time
        the
Pythagoreians, called philosophy music 

and they say that the universe is constituted in accordance with harmony,
assuming that every form of music is the work of the gods.
And in this sense, also, the
Muses are goddesses,
and
Apollo is leader of the Muses,
and
poetry as a whole is laudatory of the gods.

And by the same course of reasoning they also attribute to music the upbuilding of morals, believing that everything which tends to correct the mind is close to the gods.

Now most of the Greeks assigned to Dionysus, Apollo, Hecate, the Muses (9 women team), and above all to Demeter, everything of an orgiastic or Bacchic or choral nature, as well as the mystic element in initiations; and they give the name "Iacchus" not only to Dionysus but also to the leader-in-chief of the mysteries, who is the genius of Demeter.

Not surprisingly, the string theory is a radical-some might say crazy-departure from the past, being based on tiny strings vibrating in 10-dimensional space-time… In superstring theory, the subatomic particles we see in nature are nothing more than different resonances of the vibrating superstrings, in the same way that different musical notes emanate from the different modes of vibration of a violin string.”

The word Cain is derived from a Musical Note.

The instrument players and musicians (Muses) HAD ONCE deceived the whole world.  John calls them locusts as the classical term for the "musical prophesiers."  Abaddon may have unleashed the music in most religious groups centered around the year 2000. And the "beasts" are defined as performing satyric drama and 'A New Style of Music and Drama.' I worry about that.

THAT IS WHY JESUS DOESN'T PRAY FOR THE WORLD: THE PHYTHAGOREANS. This is the COSMIC worship revealed at the NACC 2013.

This paper has NO SIDE or turf to protect.  Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) had only one ammendment: to confess that Jesus died to be the only Teacher by virtue of His death in the Lord's Supper. That removes any and all from the role of beyond the direct command, approved examples and inferred to anyone who is a disciple where the only "worship" concept was/is to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for doctrine and comfort.  Thomas Campbell confessed Christ by defining:

Church is a School of Christ. 
Worship is Reading and Musing the Word of Christ.

That means that the ACappella Vs Instrumental is probably a Shell Game: the nut dear pea or the pea dear nut is under neither shell.

ACappella is a steal word from a cappella which was the Castrated French Opra singers imported to the Sistine Chapel (caper, goat cape) where it was unlawful to use the organ in the only official Pope's mass.  The invasion of "praise songs" written for instruments but without instruments is not in the style of the Sistine Chapel but in the style of ORGANUM a simple form of melody and is no less destructive of the mind or spirit making learning virtually impossible.  When the brain is called upon to follow every tone and overtone of four different groups singing four different sets of words at four different times to four different tunes it cracks away into a virtual drug high and shuts down the rational, mental or spiritual mind.  In Romans 12 Paul said to SHUT DOWN the fleshly person and worship in the SPIRIT:

   Now it is not a bad point in the story that the goddess [Athena] did this out of annoyance because of the ugly distortion of her features; but as a matter of fact it is more likely that it was because education in flute-playing has no effect on the intelligence, whereas we attribute science and art to Athena.
     And since we reject professional education in the instruments and in performance (and we count performance in competitions as professional, for the performer does not take part in it for his own improvement, but for his hearers' pleasure, and that a vulgar pleasure, owing to which we do not consider performing to be proper for free men, but somewhat menial; and indeed performers do become vulgar, since the object at which they aim is a low one, as vulgarity in the audience usually influences the music, so that it imparts to the artists who practise it with a view to suit the audience a special kind of personality, and also of bodily frame because of the movements required)—we must therefore give some consideration to tunes and rhythms,   See Aristot. Poet. 1447a  

If any one can find a command, example or remote inference about group singing with or without instruments as a form of worship from Genesis to Revelation and beyond up to well beyond the Reformation please speak up. We can be dogmatic because God breathed (spirit) without measure so that Jesus SPOKE only what was breathed into him.  In the classics METRON often means METER as in musical meter. That's good because there is not a jot or tittle of metrical "that which is written for our learning."  History notes the first musical discord in the year 373 after Constantine allowed unwashed Bishops to receive pay for the first time in history. This "singing" was then and is not now in that world "tuneful." Melody as tunefulness belongs to the 19th century and melody still gives you no more than a series of single notes.  Melody is not related to harmony and psallo has no musical melody meaning: the Spirit was smart enough to use words like MELOS if there was ANY musical content to A School of The Word.ll

Since all of our "investments with the Lord" since retirement have been TRANSISTIONED, as the Christian Standard puts it, we have spent the last 16 years posting in a continuous stream proving that instrumental sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments tap into the very wave nature of our creation and shuts down the rational or spiritual hemisphere and lets false teaching flow in without the ability to judge whether it is right or wrong.  Music derived from mystery in fact MEANS to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  The prophesied and fulfilled musical mocking of Jesus up to the foot of the old rugged cross is fact.  Judas was the familiar friend of Psalm 41 who would try and fail to triumph over Jesus: that is the vocal or instrumental rejoicing Christ outlawed for the Church in the wilderness.  Several Psalms as Dead Sea Scrolls defined "sounding censure on the zither" as clergy making war against God and His Son.  See Psalm 41 where the Judas Bag was for "carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments" always attached to a flute case.  What follows is a tiny sample of about 3500 documents from clay tablets onward identifying musical performers as parasites and sorcerers. I didn't promise you a short story.

To debunk worship NOT in the place of the Spirit, Jesus made it clear that The Kingdom does not come with OBSERVATION

Observātiō ōnis, observo, a watching, observance, investigation: observationes animadvertebant, your searches for evidence: siderum.— Circumspection, care, exactness: summa in bello movendo.

The sinful woman at the well might have been the only person who understood that "When Messias comes He will TELL us all things."

THAT'S GOOD BECAUSE JESUS AND PAUL DEFINED BAPTISM AS INTO THE LOGOS (Regulating principle). A holy spirit according to the Alexander Campbell, Walter Scott and Paul is a baptized believer's PERSONAL spirit which has been made holy by request at baptism.

The Laded Burden by Burden Laders repudiates performance singers without or without instruments. The SELF-pleasure in Romans 15 outlaws all of the performing arts and artist which would DISABLE speaking that which is written for our learning; preachers and musicians DO NOT write either the Prophets or Apostles which is the ONLY foundation for A Church of Christ.

Luke 1.[37] For everything spoken by God is possible.
Luke 1:67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
Luke 2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
Unless Christ has SPOKEN it as the LOGOS (Regulative Principle) in the prophets and Apostles it is not the foundational documents for edifying or education a Church of Christ.  Anyone who goes out teaching what is not taught in the prophets and apostles and left for our "memory" is a false teacher: a merchandiser.
2Peter 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.
2Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
        by reason of whom the WAY OF TRUTH shall be evil spoken of.
2Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they
        with feigned words make merchandise of you:

By definition, if you "give attendance" to rhetoricians, singers or instrument players Christ in Ezekiel 33 marked hypocrites or Scribes and Pharisees.  Giving Attendance to the Word is the ONLY thing from the Church in the wilderness which is defined as worship IN THE SPIRIT which is a PLACE opposite to Gerizim or Zion.
You cannot DILIGENTLY SEEK GOD while giving attendance or seeking to hear rhetoricians, singers and instrument players which history is absolute as defining those who intend to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

The only Preaching in the Synagogue Was READING and:

inquīro  [28] Etymology inquires into the origin of words, Some again, with an eye to the meaning of the word, call it origination. Etymology is sometimes of the utmost use, whenever the word under discussion needs interpretation.

Isaiah 10. Ramah trembles; Gibeah of Saul is fled. [30] Cry aloud with your voice, daughter of Gallim! listen, Laishah! You poor Anathoth!

Job 33:27 He looketh upon men, and if any say,
            I have sinned, and perverted that which was right,
            and it profited me not;
Job 33:28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit,
        and his life shall see the light.
Job 33:29 Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
Job 33:30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.
Job 33:31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me:
        hold thy peace, and I will speak.
Job 33:32 If thou hast any thing to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify thee.
Job 33:33 If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.

We will show below that people set their lies to melodies to deceive and shut down the giving attendance to the Reading of the Word for Comfort and Doctrine.

And since Jesus makes disciples one at a time and disciples are students commanded to teach and observe what He commanded, we have no interest in "performing" worship of watching worship being performed: that would be legalism and a terminally low opinion of God who already owns everything and cannot be seduced--the ancient view of musical performance, appeased, fed, clothed or house. In fact Christ spoke of RESTORING which commanded we audience NOT to pay for the free water of the Word: Isaiah 55 where the Word of the Spirit OF Christ IS Spirit
    The Tent or Umbrella or Safe House for translated spirit has not been restored when people violate the direct commands and examples by Seeking our own pleasure or speaking our own words.  Isaiah 58.
    Jesus EXAMPLED that by standing up to READ the inspired text and then SAT DOWN.  Paul commanded the same thin by in Romans 14 outlawing doubtful disputations or private opinions that did not edify or Educate:

Cymbălum , U II Trop.: Apion Grammaticus, hic quem Tiberius Caesar cymbalum mundi vocabat, i. e. as making the world ring with his ostentatious disputations, They were used in the festivals of Cybele and Bacchus, and on other festive occasions; also to hinder the flight of bees, etc Cat. 63, 21; 63, 29;

In Romans 15 the command was to "use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for out learning" or "comfort of the Scripture." That is how we can be united and SPEAK THE SAME THINGS.

What became The Church of Christ was never "unioned" with any religious group.  Alexander Campbell denied there there could be any Stone type unity because it would demand an organization, a creed and accepting the Stone denial of the atonement and using Christian as a title of that institution.  In 1832 a few men shook hands and agreed on the principles  always taught by Churches of Christ.  See the "agreement." here.  In 1837 Alexander Campbell denied that the "handshake" means, as Stone boasted, that the "reformers have come over to us."

What became the NACC beginning and continuing from 1927 to 1971 was specificially to repudiate open membership and and any organizational structure.  Time has proven that any organization larger than a congregation with a Title, headquarters, Address, telephone number, e-mail, a president and yearly convention in fact largly defines the faith and practices of many churches by the use and endorsement of carefully selected speakers and merchandisers.

No one has ever called for "unity" because the goal is to, in the words of Dwayne E. Dunning "Lop off one limb at a time" since taking the AXE to the whole rotten tree hasn't work.  One can assume that godly members of Christian Churches do not have that attitude. Para-church groups among Churches of Christ have tried and tried again to "Produce a Group Mentality where no one has the right to read, interpret or speak the Word OUTSIDE of the Community (read Commune)."  Not the elders but the Senior Pulpit Preacher gets that right because of personal charisma and training as Authoratative Teacher (meaning a Christ).

Revised 8.31.13  

Robert Ballard and the NACC: and to refuse to permit that which God Himslef has (P93) SAID TO USE. To forbid their use, where God has  SAID TO USE THEM, as in Eph. 5:19 and Col. 3:16 is flagrant sin (Rev 22:18:19)

Added more Stark who was active trying with force to denounce those who refused to join or participate with those churches which as part of the "we will take Tennessee for the society party within 5  years." Those refusing to be taken over by the organ party are defined (then and now) by 'rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubborness is as iniquity and idolatry'

Too bad that the Spirit OF Christ defines idolatry and witchcraft, soothying-sorcery using musical instruments as dominated by the same Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) to whom God abandoned Israel because using instruments at Mount Sinai always meaning "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." You cannot have read Acts 7 without being warned.

Furthermore, God set a mouse trap so that the text is actually INVERTED for those not OF TRUTH or not the lost spirits Jesus cam to seek and save. He did not pray for the world and God hides from the wise or Sophists defined as self-preachers, singers and instrument players.

The men who translated the Septuagint (LXX) used Psallo to translate Mizmor or Nagan because the PSAO or SOP based words always point to men singing taunt songs. The Jacob-Cursed and God-abandoned Levites were under the KING and Commanders of the Army. They made war and not worship.  The Halal praise word means "to make yourself vile" because the boasting songs and instrumental noise intended to turn the enemy into cowards. The implied threat from the Egyptian based instruments was that if captured the enemy would be raped before executed. "Lucifer" is derived from this "praise word." The similar Chalal means to blow the flute, steal people's inheritance, pollute or prostitute.  It defines "Lucifer cast out as profane" and into the garden of Eden where Christ calls him-her-in the singing and harp-playing prostitute.

Psallo was always used to translate SING which was used in the same threatening way.  If an instrument is intended, psallo just means to pluck or smite.  Psallo has no musical content other than Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) who shot forth songs or love arrows with his lyre.  Some performers still SHOOT FORTH songs.  Singing and any instrumental noise was outlawed for the church in the wilderness.

Paul warns about people not being able to READ BLACK text on BROWN paper or even HEAR the Word when it is PREACHED by being READ. I don't know who imagined that Paul said to SING psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.

Many Bible based Churches fulfilled the goal of the ekklesia, synagogue or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness.  The whole history of the synagogue, the practice and command of Jesus, the practice and command of men like Paul and several centuries of church history agreed that a church must be Apostolic: it is built upon or educated by the Prophets and Apostles. 

Eph. 5:26WEB That he might sanctify and cleanse it

Pregn., to change the nature of a thing; i. e. to change, alter, transform, turn.

En en paidotribou, at the school of Ar.Nu.973,

When the men wrote epistles the command was to READ THEM and a herald who added his own two cents would be PUNISHED. Written documents from "a god" were always to be read without adding and subtracting.

The Campbells tried to restore:

Church is A school of Christ
Worship is reading or speaking and musing on the Word of God.

A local "society" met and followed the direct commands to PREACH the word by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.  Private opinions or practices were not imposed into the local society. This is what Paul commanded in Romans 14 where doubtful disputions or private opinions were not accepted because they did not edify or EDUCATE.  In Romans 15 the direct command was to "use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning."  Anything beyond has and will destroy the quiet School of the Word.  The discussion of Campbell's Declaration and Address intended that every member become a Bible Scholar. For goodness sake, isn't that the meaning of making Disciples rather than self-willed "worship"?

Most if not all of these Bible-based pulpits were suddenly invaded by Professional Actors, Communicators, Rhetoricians, Singers and Musicians.  The Bible preacher was out and "prophets and apostles" claimed to see visions, hear audible voices or have "A" spirit tell them that we lived in a postmodern, postBiblical and postChristian dispensation. This "spirit" even told them that God's abandonment of Israel to Babylonianism was now THEIR mandate to COMMAND this Babylonianism.  These slipped in by claiming that they were "Doctors of the law" (Scribes) when Jesus said that they "Take away the key to knowledge.

This resulted in New Style Song books and turning congregational singing into congregational or Worship Leaders singing inane praise ditties and acting like wannabe girls in Churches of Christ.  It resulted in the same thing in instrumental churches SPLITTING them into "traditional" (that lie word) and "progressives."  One Methodist church has Five Musical Sects meeting in one building.

Preaching meaning to sell your own rhetoric was always outlawed in the Christ-ordained synagogue.  The nearest to preaching wasReading the text in its original and translating or giving its meaning. This SINGULAR pattern for the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness was the Miqra at the Qahal (skul)
h4744.Miqra.gif

Nehemiah 8:8 So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly,
        and gave [rehearsed] the sense [knowledge],
        and caused them to understand the reading. [miqra]

They wept when they heard the READING OF THE WORD: AFTER the holy convocation of Reading the Word, the people went their own way and ate and rejoiced. They sent food to those who had no food. They rejoiced because they had UNDERSTOOD the READING of the Word.

Acts 13:15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.

Para-klēsis  in this sense was not a mere address to their feelings, but council to act right.

That became Reading of the Prophets and Apostles for comfort and doctrine.
If you get a Phd to learn NOT to "read that which is written for our learning" which is the only object of workshops and publishers then you are NOT A Church of Christ which He paid for with His own blood.

There is a decreasing role for the honorable preacher who goes with the Bible in his hands in most groups taken over by the same doctors of the law whoo take away the key to knowledge.

"Those who lord it over the people will soon begin to destroy Them. The word Balaam means 'the destroyer of the people.' If we turn back to the history of this strange figure as recorded in the book of Numbers we find that which clarifies three passages in the New Testament where 'the error of Balaam' (Jude 11), 'the way of Balaam' (II Pet. 2:15) and 'the doctrine of Balaam' are discussed." (Barnhouse, D.G., Revelation, Zondervan, p. 54

It has been said: "From late Jewish sources we learn that rabbis were expected to support themselves by some form of labor. Rabbi Zadok said, "Make not of the Torah . . . a spade wherewith to dig . . . whosoever derives a profit for himself from the words of the Torah is helping his own destruction" (Pirqe 'Abot 4.7). Rabbi Gamaliel III declared, "An excellent thing is the study of the Torah combined with some secular occupation, for the labor by them both puts sin out of one's mind. All study of the Torah which is not combined with work will ultimately be futile and lead to sin" (Talmud Pirqe 'Abot 2.12 p 213). BUY THE BOOK The Moral Maxims of the Sages of Israel: Pirkei Avot

The split between the Disciples of Christ and Christian Churches began with the PSALLO word in 1878

Amos 8 and Isaiah 5 warns that instrumental noise in the assembly DEPRIVES people of the right to hear the Word of God as written to prevent tampering. They hungered and thirsted for the Word but never found it and went into captivity. Well-documented but hidden in plain sight from the wise and worldly, all of the hypocritic arts and crafts are silenced or even ejected by the Christ-gifted elders SO THAT the elders can "teach that which has been taught."  Vanilla is just fine but it turns my coffee into NOT-coffee.

THE SCHOOL OF CHRIST VERSUS EMOTIONAL WORSHIP.  All division over worship practices stem from the fact that almost no one knows that the only WORSHIP concept from the wilderness onward meant to fall on your face in reverence and godly fear or in a spiritual sense Speaking that which is written for our LEARNING but leaving the ODING and PSALLO in the heart: we might say with Paul of those speaking their own songs that they were speaking into the air and should be SILENT unless they were an ordained prophet.

Stark  In the Stark Warlick Debate,  thought of worship as the emotion of the soul and that it might "produce singing, shouting, praising, leaping, dancing, hand clapping, or thanksgiving and such should not be suppressed by man made rules."

These commands of men are the creed of their division of God's people.  Like Paul's '"man of sin," they have taken their place in the temple of God and assume to speak as God.  God put it into his sanctuary by command; and if he has not taken it out, it remains there, unless some one claiming superior authority to God shall as God put it out of the temple of God. That character Paul calls "the man of sin who opposseth and exalteth himself above all that is called God: The Doom of such is HELL.  I need no authority for using it; for where there is no law, there is no transgression. [p.15]

What have they to do with my worship of God? The whole thing comes from a devilish, domineering spirit, which, instead of worshipping God, has taken God's seat in judgment to control the praise others may bring...  it is well enough to teach them: but 'rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubborness is as iniquity and idolatry. (1 Samuel 15:23) p. 16

The PATTERN is to blame the IMPOSED UPON and DISCORDED as being the SECTARIANS.  That goes along with not ever having read the context of the judgmental texts heaped upon those who would not bow dow.


1Samuel 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
1Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

6 Is he deranged: "Hariolus." Literally, "a soothsayer," or "diviner." In their prophetic frenzy, these persons often had the appearance of being mad, and were so considered.

Paul warned about the Mad Women in Corinth because only women and perverted males could fall into this.

Stark give the instrumentalists the right to DEVISE THEIR OWN WAY.  However, the LORD directs man's steps.  The Inspired writers noted that:

Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

God doesn't TEACH with songs and instruments. The universal COMMAND for ALL speaking roles is:

1Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

God didn't command Stark to begin the Instrumental Sect: he confesses that HE just made it up:
1Samuel 10:6 And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.

1Chr. 15:19 So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were appointed to sound with cymbals of brass;

Paul warned about an emasculated priesthood in Galatians 5 and connects music to witchcraft or sorcery.

Bacchus or Dionysus also points to the Egyptian gods worshipped as the "starry host" with Jacob-cursed and  God-abandoned Levites. Here is THE MARK by Christ in Isaiah 3 warning about women and BOYS ruling over you.  The BEAST is "a new style of music and drama."

Catullus Carmine 63 "Haste you together, she-priests, to Cybele's dense woods, together haste, you vagrant herd of the dame Dindymene, you who inclining towards strange places as exiles, following in my footsteps, led by me, comrades, you who have faced the ravening sea and truculent main, and have castrated your bodies in your utmost hate of Venus, make glad our mistress speedily with your minds' mad wanderings.

Let dull delay depart from your thoughts, together haste you, follow to the Phrygian home of Cybele, to the Phrygian woods of the Goddess, where sounds the cymbal's voice, where the tambour resounds, where the Phrygian flutist pipes deep notes on the curved reed, where the ivy-clad Maenades furiously toss their heads, where they enact their sacred orgies with shrill-sounding ululations  [Halal praise word], where that wandering band of the Goddess flits about: there it is meet to hasten with hurried mystic dance."

Paul silenced both men and women to prevent the outbreak of wrath or ORGIES.  The clear stated purpose was that everyone be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.

When Attis, spurious woman, had thus chanted to her comity, the chorus straightway shrills with trembling tongues, the light tambour booms, the concave cymbals clang, and the troop swiftly hastes with rapid feet to verdurous Ida.

Then raging wildly, breathless, wandering, with brain distraught, hurries Attis with her tambour, their leader through dense woods, like an untamed heifer shunning the burden of the yoke: and the swift Gallae press behind their speedy-footed leader. So when the home of Cybele they reach, wearied out with excess of toil and lack of food they fall in slumber. Sluggish sleep shrouds their eyes drooping with faintness, and raging fury [Wrath warned Paul] leaves their minds to quiet ease.

Where then are those who dare to mutilate themselves; seeing that they draw down the Apostolic curse, and accuse the workmanship of God, and take part with the Manichees? ... But if you will not allow this,  why do you not mutilate the tongue for blasphemy, the hands for rapine, the feet for their evil courses, in short, the whole body?

For the ear enchanted by the sound of a flute hath often enervated the soul;
and the perception of a sweet perfume by the nostrils hath bewitched the mind, and made it frantic for pleasue.

Ver. 12
For they had compelled them to abandon their own fatherland, their liberty,
and their heavenly kindred, and to seek an alien and foreign one;
they had cast them out of Jerusalem which is above and free,
and compelled them to wander forth as captives and emigrants.
But in truth neither the eye nor any other part of us is to blame, but the depraved will only. But if you will not allow this, why do you not mutilate the tongue for blasphemy, the hands for rapine, the feet for their evil courses,  in short, the whole body?

Stark: Who put the twelfth commandment into God's law, saying, "Thou shalt not have an instrument of music in the congregation of the saints?"  David [Lipscomb], the destructive critic, when, like the "man of sin," he sits in the temple of God, says: "Thou shalt not."  That is the corner stone of his departure--the foundation of his schism.  Their church is built upon it, and a few old fogies have made it a test of fellowship.  God will shake their thunder out of them and put some lightning into them one of these days. [p.28]

After the fall into musical idolatry at Mount Sinai The Spirit OF Christ defined the Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ both inclusively and exclusively.  This had already been defined for the godly people in Exodus 18.

This was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word: that never changed and Jesus did not change it.
This was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing as well as elevated forms of speech.
The church was quarantined FROM the Temple and sacrifices which Christ says GOD NEVER COMMANDED.

The SAND CREEK and STARKS attitude was considered the wedge which alerted Churches of Christ (as at Sand Creek) that even fraternal assembly with the Disciples-Christian Church--as have all unity meetinga--had the intention of IMPOSING instruments to make unity possible by transferring churches to the pre-NACC.  Stark and Payne were the final effort to convert Churches of Christ to join them before secting out of the Disciples beginning in 1927.

Stark promotes what Jesus died to condemn as the Laded Burden and Paul affirmed as Self-Pleasure which outlawed all of the performing arts and artists so that the PATTERN of "using one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning" or "the Comfort of the Scriptures."  That was the Inclusive-Exclusive pattern until Constantine paid pagan, unwashed priests.

Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, Ante-Nicene Fathers, VII, p. 188

"But we have already spoken of spectacles: [lying wonders]
        there remains one thing which is to be overcome by us,
        that we be not captivated by those things
        which penetrate to the innermost perception. (emotions only)

        For all those things which are
unconnected with words, (just speaking in tongues)
        that is,
pleasant sounds of the air and of strings,
        may be easily disregarded, because they do not adhere to us, and cannot be written...

Is God, therefore, the contriver both of the mind, and of the voice,
        and of the
tongues, unable to speak eloquently?
        Yea, rather, with the greatest foresight,

        He wished those things which are divine to be without adornment,
        that all might understand the things which He Himself spoke to all." 

God stretched the Israelites at Mount Sinai with a 40 day plan, they broke and fell back into instrumental idolatry of the Egyptian trinity.

Therefore God made all things to supply a contest between two things.
       
Those enticements of pleasures, then, are the instruments 
        of that whose only business it is to subdue virtue,
        and to shut out justice from men.

        With these soothing influences and enjoyments it captivates their souls;
        for it knows that pleasure is the contriver of death.

Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1175b.1

But things that are akin to things of different kinds must themselves differ in kind.
        [3] A still clearer proof may be drawn
        from the hindrance that activities
        receive from the pleasure derived from other activities.

Self-pleasure in Romans 15 is identified by rhetoric, singing, playing, dancing or drama which creates "mental excitement" which is the "laded burden" Jesus died to remove meaning "spiritual anxiety created by religious ritual." The BURDEN in Hebrew, Greek and Latin identifies the performance or hypocritic arts and crafts INTENDING to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter.

For instance, persons fond of the flute
        cannot give their attention to a philosophical discussion [The LOGOS or Regulative Principle]
        when they overhear someone playing the flute,
        because they enjoy music more than the activity in which they are engaged;
                therefore the pleasure afforded by the music of the flute
                impairs the activity of study.

[4] The same thing occurs in other cases when a man tries to do two things at once; the pleasanter activity drives out the other, the more so if it is much more pleasant, until the other activity ceases altogether.

Hence, when we enjoy something very much, we can hardly do anything else; and when we find a thing only mildly agreeable, we turn to some other occupation; for instance, people who eat sweets at the theater do so especially when the acting is bad.

[ 5] And since our activities [of the flute] are sharpened, prolonged and improved by their own pleasure, and impaired by the pleasures of other activities, it is clear that pleasures differ widely from each other. In fact alien pleasures have almost the same effect on the activities as their own pains; since, when an activity causes pain, this pain destroys it, for instance, if a person finds writing or doing sums unpleasant and irksome; for he stops writing or doing sums, because the activity is painful.

        Now it is not difficult to see that one must not make amusement the object of the education of the young;
        for amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.

John 17:14 I have given them thy word;
        and the world hath hated them,
        because they are not of the world,

        but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world,
        even so have I also sent them into the world

Paul would have understood the Classics as would even young people who received much of their education by watching performances at the theaters, forums or School of Tyrannus.

Isaiah 30 a message from the Spirit OF Christ:

And his breath [SPIRIT], as rushing water in a valley, reach reach as far as the neck, and be divided, to confound the nations for their vain error; error also shall pursue them and overtake them. Isaiah 30:28 LXX

Must ye always rejoice, and go into my holy places continually, as they that keep a feast? and must ye go with a pipe, as those that rejoice into the mountain of the Lord, to the God of Israel Isaiah 30:29 LXX

and the Lord shall make his glorious voice to be heard and the wrath of his arm, to make a display with wrath and anger and devouring flame: he shall lighten terribly, and his wrath shall be as water and violent hail. Isaiah 30:30 LXX

For by the voice of the Lord the Assyrians shall be overcome, even by the stroke where with he shall smite them. Isaiah 30:31 LXX

And it shall happen to him from every side, that they from whom their hope of assistance was, in which he trusted, themselves shall war against him in turn with drums and with harp. Isaiah 30:32 LXX

For thou shalt be required before thy time: has it been prepared for thee also to reign? nay, God has prepared for thee a deep trench, wood piled fire and much wood: the wrath of the Lord shall be as a trench kindled with sulphur. Isaiah 30:33 LXX

O. E. Payne Instrumental Music is Scriptural p 125  Revised 7.18.13:

O. E. Payne's collection of PLUCKING strings was the founding document which led to the NACC in 1927 after the Boswel-Hardeman Debate in 1927 when "taking Tennessee for the society and organ party within 5 years" seemed not to have done more than drive wedges.  What he proves is that forms of PSALLO mean plucking WHEN one is plucking a harp string. We all know that psallo means to pluck or smite and has no musical connection being rooted primarily in twanging a bow string. "And with their hands they twang [psallousi] the bow strings."  Psallo has never and can never apply to guitar picks, flutes, drums or ANY musical instrument

O.E. Payne makes the assertion that the following is a paralllel command:

Paul -- A.D. 64:
Plutarch -- A.D. 85:
Payne: Speaking one to another in psalmos and humnos and spiritual ode, adontes and psallontes with your heart to the Lord Eph. 5:19
Plutarch: The frequent strains of pipe and flute, of songes [odes] and lyre music [psalmou] -- Alex 67

That is not true: Paul commanded TWO things both external (speak) and internal because the singing and psallo words would inform the readers NOT to fall into the folly of the MADE women of Corinth.
Ephesians 5:19
        1.  Speaking

        2.   singing and making melody IN your heart to the Lord;

Plut. Alex. 67.1 Accordingly, after refreshing his forces here, he set out and marched for seven days through Carmania in a revelling rout. He himself was conveyed slowly along by eight horses, while he feasted day and night continuously with his companions on a dais built upon a lofty and conspicuous scaffolding of oblong shape; and waggons without number followed, some with purple and embroidered canopies, others protected from the sun by boughs of trees which were kept fresh and green, conveying the rest of his friends and commanders, who were all garlanded and drinking.

[2] Not a shield was to be seen, not a helmet, not a spear, but along the whole march with cups and drinking-horns and flagons the soldiers kept dipping [
baptizontes] wine from huge casks and mixing-bowls and pledging one another, some as they marched along, others lying down; while pipes and flutes, stringed instruments and song, and revelling cries of women, filled every place with abundant music.
On the contrary, Paul commanded
Don't get drunk with wine: don't get fluted down with wine.
Instead be filled with Spirit or The Word of Christ.
That prevents the wrath or orgy when women presume to PERFORM
[3] Then, upon this disordered and straggling procession there followed also the sports of bacchanalian license, as though Bacchus himself were present and conducting the revel. 1 Moreover, when he came to the royal palace of Gedrosia, he once more gave his army time for rest and held high festival.

1 According to Arrian ( Anab. vi. 28, 1 f), this bacchanalian procession through Carmania rests on no credible authority.
[426] To recompense his soldiers for their recent distress, the king conducted them for seven days in drunken bacchanalian procession through Karmania, himself and all his friends taking part in the revelry; an imitation of the jovial festivity and triumph with which the god Dionysus had marched back from the conquest of India. (Grote's 'History of Greece,' part ii. ch. xciv.)

[215] I happened to be at a distance from this land, when I heard of strange evils throughout this city, that the women have left our homes in contrived Bacchic rites, and rush about in the shadowy mountains, honoring with dances [220] this new deity [daimona] Dionysus, whoever he is. I hear that mixing-bowls stand full in the midst of their assemblies, and that they each creep off different ways into secrecy to serve the beds of men, on the pretext that they are Maenads worshipping; [225] but they consider Aphrodite before Bacchus.

Chorus
Let him be mute and stand aside from our sacred dances
who has no experience of mystical language, or has not cleansed his mind
Who never has seen and never has danced in the rites of the noble Muses

Whoever takes bribes when guiding the state through the midst of a storm
Or betrays our forts or our ships, smuggles contraband from Aegina
As Thorycion did, that wretched collector of taxes
Sending pads and sails and pitch to Epidauros,
Or persuades anyone to send supplies to the enemies' ships,
Or defiles Hecate's shrine, while singing dithyrambs,
Or any politician who bites off the pay of the poets
For being ridiculed in the ancestral rites of Dionysus.
All these I warn, and twice I warn, and thrice I warn again,
stand aside from our mystical dances; but as for you: arouse the song
and the night-long dances, that belong to our festival here.

Plut. Alex. 67.4 We are told, too, that he was once viewing some contests in singing and dancing, being well heated with wine, and that his favourite, Bagoas, won the prize for song and dance, and then, all in his festal array, passed through the theatre and took his seat by Alexander's side; at sight of which the Macedonians clapped their hands and loudly bade the king kiss the victor, until at last he threw his arms about him and kissed him tenderly.

See Tom Burgess Moralia 100: And among the barbarians the Celts also, though they have very beautiful women, enjoy boys more; so that some of them often have two lovers to sleep with on their beds of animal skins. As for the Persians, Herodotus says they learned the use of boys from the Greeks.

King Alexander also was madly devoted to boys. Dicaearchus, at any rate, in his book On the Sacrifice at Ilium, says that he was so overcome with love for the eunuch Bagoas that, in full view of the entire theatre, he, bending over, caressed Bagoas fondly, and when the audience clapped and shouted in applause, he, nothing loath, again bent over and kissed him...

Plutarch, Pericles Tom Burgess uses Pericles to authorize PLUCKING-in church, yet.
O.E.Payne agrees: Apparently it is better to pluck harp strings to seduce a young man whose hairs had been plucked than to SPEAK for learning and "make the harp strings sing"-- a common understanding.


Plutarch, Lives Pericles 1 [4] Such objects are to be found in virtuous deeds; these implant in those who search them out a great and zealous eagerness which leads to imitation. In other cases, admiration of the deed is not immediately accompanied by an impulse to do it. Nay, many times, on the contrary, while we delight in the work, we despise the workman


as, for instance, in the case of perfumes and dyes; we take a delight in them


but dyers and perfumers we regard as illiberal and vulgar folk.


[5] Therefore it was a fine saying of Antisthenes, when he heard that Ismenias was an excellent piper:
all' anthrōpos,’ ephē, ‘mokhthēros: [wicked, knavish, rascally, perverse]: ou gar an houtō spoudaios ēn aulētēs


"But he's a worthless man," said he, "otherwise he wouldn't be so good a piper."


And so Philip [Philip of Macedon, to Alexander.] once said to his son, who, as the wine went round, plucked the strings charmingly and skilfully, "Art not ashamed to pluck the strings so well?" It is enough, surely, if a king have leisure to hear others pluck the strings, and he pays great deference to the Muses if he be but a spectator of such contests.
He didn't say PLUCK but pluck the STRINGS. Paul commanded that we PLUCK the heart strings.

But whether I aim correctly at the proper mark must be decided from what I have written

PAUL WAS CLASSICS-LITERATE AND TAUGHT JUST THE OPPOSITE.

ALL of the Pro-instrumental music agents claim that God Commanded Instrumental Praise and we must not be disobedient.  Furthermore, they ALL deny that there is anything in Scripture which has anything bad to say about it.  God is SILENT they say.  But, that is false. If God WAS silent then why is it worth sowing massive discord to use that as a LAW OF SILENCE permitting them to speak where, they say, God is silent?

We have added another review of the North American Christian Convention bonded this year with Pepperdine University training preachers to LEAVE OUT MOVEMENT.  In this paper we have FOUND some radical condemnation by the Spirit OR Christ especially in the prophets.  Since a Church of Christ is built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles, we have serious problems with using the Doctors of The Law when Jesus said that they TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOELEDGE.

See our list which NO SCHOLAR seems to be able to read.

Revised 5.29.13
The tiny number of Church of Christ preachers who have been "transistioned" to the use of instrumental music (God used the word "noise") is a testimony to the scholarship of preachers and elders.  If there was a single Bible notice that  "machines for doing hard work, mostly making war and the shock and awe of religious spectacles", had or has a place in what is universally called A School (only) of the Word (only) of Christ (only) in the prophets and apostles, one might expect that, like the earlier Disciples/Christians split, a large percentage would have leaped at the chance to help fill the unlawful collection plates.

It is a false ploy to claim that what became Churches of Christ were ever "unioned" with the Stoneite.  Because of the utterly false claim that Churches of Christ became a sectarian split from the Disciples/Christians in 1906, the NACC claims the right to REcapture "unity" which demands either affirming or conforming to the instrumental view. It is a fact that the NACC began to sect out of the Disciples of Christ in 1971 and were not DIScounted as members until the year 1971.

  1. Before 1832 Alexander Campbell denied that the Reformed Baptists could be united with the Stoneites because they held nothing in common.
  2. In 1832 a few men shook hands over the agreement that supported totally the Reformed Baptists or Church of Christ understanding.
  3. After 1832 Alexander Campbell scoffed that a few handshakes ment that the Reformed Baptists had "come over to the Stoneites."
  4. The fraternal association almost totally ceased when the Disciples fell under the spell of William Miller and determined to form a society and go to Israel and SAVE ALL OF THE JEWS to make it possible for Jesus to return in 1844.  H Leo Boles recognized this fraternal unity until the year 1849
  5. Before the Disciples/Christians began to impose instruments which were rejected by most of the Disciple preachers, it was quiet easy to ASSEMBLE with any of the "societies" or denominational groups.

Both Stone and Campbell understood that there could be no UNITY which demanded a CREED:

There is strong evidence that Mr. Campbell did not favor the so-called union.

In The Christian Messenger for November, 1834, is quoted an article from the Millennial Harbinger (Campbell's paper) as follows:

"Or does he (Stone) think that one or two individuals, of and for themselves, should propose and effect a formal union among the hundred of congregations scattered over this continent, called Christians or Disciples, without calling upon the different congregations to express an opinion or a wish upon the subject?

We discover, or think we discover, a squinting at [14]  some sort of precedency or priority in the claims of the writer of the above article," etc.

It is well known that Mr. Campbell insisted upon immersion before believers were received into fellowship, to which Stone answered:

"We cannot, with our present views, unite on the opinions that unimmersed persons cannot receive remission of sins."

And though later on he came to believe in immersion in water for the remission of sins, there is no evidence that he ever made it a test of fellowship, without which he could not
have been a member of the Disciples of Christ. [Reformed Baptists]

See the false World History of the Stone Campbell Movement
The Stone-Campbell Movement was begun about the time the NACC sected out of the Disciples/Christians. The thesis is false and in the name of consistency would demand that the NACC be REunited with the Disciples as that is the plot.

See J. F. Burnett denying that what became the Churches of Christ were ever united with the Disciples-Christian churches.

Because so many lives have been dramatically discorded by people who claim that a HOLY spirit guided them into something the Spirit OF Christ radically condemns, and the drum beat never seems to cease, I am taking the liberty to post the ways SPIRITUS is used in the latin: Spirit is never a "people." The Spirit OF Christ in the Prophets denies.

There is no Command, example or remote inference that any godly people assembled for singing with or without instrumental (noise as God says).  And the Bible from the musical enchanter(ess) in the garden of Eden to the Babylon Mother of Harlots in Revelation associates instrumental noise with sorcery or trying to "get your way" against the other person's will.

Why have people have been so aggressive in IMPOSING music such as SINGING as an ACT of Liturgy divisively as late as the year 373 and now is commanded and apparently so necessary with instrumental accompaniment is beyond comprehension.

have made the cornerstone of their message to try to force UNITY by forcing everyone to endure the destruction of the REST from the laded burdens. These were (songs creating spiritual anxiety through religious ritual) or the forbidden SELF pleasure or creation of mental excitement in Revelation 15.  This was to prevent destroying the School of Christ commanded to "useone mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our LEARNING." 

PLEASE READ ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THAT CHURCHES OF CHRIST HAVE A RIGHT NOT TO BE FORCED TO DO WHAT THEY CONSIDER ANTI BIBLICAL, DISCORDING AND SPIRITUALLY HURTFUL FOR UP TO HALF OF THE POPULATION,  IN ALL CASES IT DESTROYS THE RATIONAL (SPIRITUAL) MIND SO THAT IT DOES NOT "GIVE HEED" (that unique worship word) TO THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING.  People who wrote on clay tablets understood that that instrumental noises--especially after brass or that serpent power--charm, enchant or act as sorcery to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" and able to force people to believe what they would deny without the musical tapping into the very wave nature of humans.

See Martin Luther on Romans 15

To this Socrates replied: “Antiphon, it is common opinion among us
        in regard to beauty and wisdom
                that there is an honourable
                and a shameful way of bestowing them.
        For to offer one's beauty for money to all comers is called prostitution;

        But we think it virtuous to become friendly with
              a lover who is known to be a man of honour.

        So is it with wisdom. Those who offer it to all comers for money
               are known as sophists, prostitutors of wisdom

        But we think that he who makes a friend of one whom he knows to be gifted
               by nature, and teaches him all the good he can,

               fulfils the duty of a citizen and a gentleman.

7.10.13 More Warnings from Revelation 5


God granted David a TENT on Mount Moriah
But, Solomon built God a HOUSE on Mount Moriah where God in Christ has already PROVIDED.
BUT, God does not dwell in houses built by human hands neither is He worshipped by the WORKS of human hands.
The supposed THRONE of God in the Temple--which God did not command--was in the Most Holy Place.
No Levite musician could enter even the Holy Place typical of the promised church without getting executed.
The incense altar was at the entrance to the Most Holy Place,
Institutional religions are PATTERNED after a literal Most Holy Place where God "dwells" they think.
However, the sinful woman understood Jesus to say that Messiah will TELL US ALL THINGS and is worshipped IN THE SPIRIT as a place as compared to AT MOUNT ZION.

In Romans 14 when you hear the SOUNDS-LIKE noises all creating panic or religious awe, the angel to the LIVING is that this is the SOUND of judgment and you had better Preach the Gospel to ALL nations rather than huddling in the bunkers.

This was already set up for the "Worship of the starry host" to which God abandoned Israel because of instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai.
The Spirit OF Christ Who only spoke through the PROPHETS and APOSTLES affirmed
The Civil Ekklesia or Synagogue had no theatrical or musical performance: they read and discussed what was handed down by a HIGHER authority.

The INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC as a PATTERN worth sowing discord over in Revelation 5 begins.

Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal:
        and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne,

ZOE is Lucifer or Venus: She is called the BEAST or Female Instructing Principle. She is EVE or EVAH in the religions that flowed out of Cain (from a musical note].  As the serpent in the garden was a mucial enchanter(ess) and Christ called Lucifer "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden", in the end times BEAST or Theiron is defined as "a new style of music or drama" which suddenly arrives.

        and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
Mark 12:40 Which devour widows’ houses,

        these shall receive greater damnation.

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: in the Ezekiel 33 version Christ names self-speakers, singers and instrument players.
The elders made a fatal error by firing God and demanding a king like the nations (Pagans) so they could worship like the pagans.   A BEAST is defined as an effeminate performer of new style music and drama. They were forced to fall on their face or bow their knees but they had NOTHING to contribute to the Living Word of God whom He made to be both Lord and Christ

Is. 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:
        and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes,
        neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
Is. 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor,
        and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth:
        and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth,
        and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

Remember that the ELDERS nor the BEASTS could open the Word of the Lamb.  Therefore, in the Christian Kingdom the ELDERS and the BEASTS with not rule the nation not try to SPEAK using musical instruments.  They could not APPREHEND the Word of God.

Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the book,
        the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb,
        having every one of them
                harps [comma often omitted]
                and golden vials full of odours,
                         which are the prayers of saints.

Worship is IN the spirit or mind as opposed to IN the flesh or IN a house built by human hands OR by the WORKS of human handsBoth APPREHENDING the instrument of God AND prayers are IN the spirit or mind and never WITH musical instruments.

Click for Jesus and the apostles SPOKE a HYMN (Biblical text) and WENT OUT which would be a good PATTERN withought having musicians PRETEND to be mediators.

Matthew 26.30 When they had 'hymned" they went out to the Mount of Olives.

I believe that the Latin agrees with the common understanding that "singing was using the normal inflections of the human voice." Especially when you are confessing God the Father by the use of a hymn or prayer which gives HIM the glory. Mature males then and probably now do not agree to get together to appease God with singing.

Revised 5.17.13
Neither ANTI-instrumental hermeneuts nor the ANTI-anti-instrumentalists deny the Biblical, historical and the Campbell teaching that Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) is A School of Christ or A School of the Word of Christ.  Singing as an ACT (that legalism word) was first imposed in the year 373: that split the east from the west churches and history is filled with records of people imposing musicj. Music derived from mystery meant in all paganism including the sacrificial systems "making the lambs dumb before the slaughter."  Jesus identified the doctors of the law as "taking away the key to knowledge." He called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: in the Ezekiel 33 version marked for avoidance "self-speakers, singers and talented instrument players." The MARK in several Old Testament versions is "we will NOT speak that for which we take away the living of widows and honest workers.  While EVERYONE trusts their sowing of discord on theology and NO ONE is interested in the TEXT (John Mark Hicks claims theology over text).  Almost at randome a disciple of the Word discovers passages like this:

SEE how Jeff Walling told the NACC how he TRANSISTIONED HIS church to instrumental "worship" after the NACC transistioned Jeff Walling

We will quote the facts to prove that God OUTLAWED any of the hypocritic arts and crafts for the Church in the Wilderness: the TRIUMPH OVER word was left as a MARKER to prove that Judas did not triumph over Jesus even though He and the clergy tried.

Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand:

Matthew 27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him,
        and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
