North Boulevard Church Unity in Diversity

North Boulevard Church of Christ Tithing. That is radically false.
If you claim that God commanded you to tithe and God did not, then that despises the Word which means blasphemy.
David Young and the North Boulevard EX-church of Christ and Predestination.


2.18.16 The elders and "leader" makes the following accusations intending, as they boast, to infiltrate and divert your congregation to their own wicked purposes.
  1. Legalistic 2 times
  2. Just our Tradition or Traditional 20 Times.
           
    [This is a lie: vocal and instrumental rejoicing was outlawed for the Church of Christ in the Wilderness.
  3. Style or Styles  of WORSHIP 16 Times
    Jesus said that the kingdom does not come with religious observations: the School of Christ is the antithesis of the always-pagan worship rituals.  Jesus named self-speakers, singers and instrument players hypocrites.
  4. Method or Methods 9 Times [Elders as THE pastor-teachers are commanded to TEACH that which HAS BEEN TAUGHT.
  5. Customs 2 [Not using instruments is a Direct Command known by all bible students]
  6. A NEW Language 7 Times [They claim that the Bible is to be interpreted by a NEW REVELATIONS: the 20/20 vision CASTING is a witchcraft or sorcery word]
  7. Just our Heritage 2 [That's a lie]
  8. Freedom 22 Times--is something WE OFFER YOU. [Christ freed us from laded burden and burden laders: performance musicians a a TAX not in time of war.
  9. Just our Opinions 11 Times [That's a lie]
  10. Pharisee 2 [Jesus called preachers for hire, singers and instrument players PHARISEES]
  11. Continuity with the Past 2 [He means WE will OFFER both vocal and instrumental]
  12. Judgment 8 [Judgment is the Purpose Driven Cults Infiltrate and Divert your newly financed property]
  13. Not using INSTRUMENTS HINDERS the Work of God
  14. Because this is DISCORDING WE will move slowly. [Frogs might jump out of the Collection plate vat]

North.Boulevard.Church.Of.Christ.Change -  A New Day's thesis is that we have been wrong for these 2,000 years but WE have a new vision by a Direct Operation of THE holy spirit.  Missed Prepositions 101.

The Kairos Church Planting Plot: Kairos (Hermes-Mercury) is the demon son of Zeus among pagans. He is the false Christ Who is the only mediator between God and Man.  Kairos means the right time to mount an attack as Jesus came at the right time to put down the Civil-Military-Clergy robbing and enslaving those God liberated. Christ's Covenant is to the LAITY exclusive of Priests or Levites.

Coming: North Boulevard Church of Christ Trinitarian: John writes that ANTI-christs deny. Among Pagans: Jesus was called a Son only after He was baptized and He was not Lord or Christ until the One God the Father MADE HIM TO BE:

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
        whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us there is but one God [Theos], the Father,
        of whom are all things, and we in him;
        and one Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

From the Garden of Eden to the speakers, singers and instrument players are priests of the Babylon mother of harlots in Revelation 17 Jesus through John calls them SORCERERS and says that the MUSIC to silence Jesus is the MARK of being CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Jesus said that the sons of the Devil SPEAK ON THEIR OWN. The devil is the adversary of Christ and the word, Logos or regulative principle. There can be no viler false accusation than to gleefully and pontificatingly say that God PREDESTINATES those to go to heaven and those who go to hell. David says that God fitted a crown for HIM from eternity past and it cannot be revoked. Predestination gets viler because it says that not even GOD can change His mind.  The recorded MARKS of a person in God's grace is NOT that they keep fighting sin but that they keep the commandments of God.

It is also a mark no knowledge and no respect for the WORD they collect money claiming to support. There is no person who is said to be a sinner because GOD manufactured them that way just to prove his SOVERN authority.  There is no remote inference that God has predestinated or pre DETERMINED that any person should go to heaven.

God KNEW THE JEWS BEFORE and His purpose which is in the past and therefore PREpurposed or PREcounseled to be conformed to the image of Christ. That is in Romans 8 which comes before chapters 9-11 where Paul pauses and DENIES the Jews claim to predestination. The PROOF that they were not predestinated to go to heaven is their musical idolatry of the pagan trinity at Mount Sinai.


If you are not a Jewish Remnant from the Old Testament Period never believe the predestination vileness.

Revised 1.23.14
I will be posting EACH of the statements by the Leader and Elders as they have been posted for about 4 years and are finally being PROPOSED

Without defending any modern Institutionalized Churches of Christ most of which have fallen away from the Biblical and Campbell demand that:

Church is A School of Christ
Worship is Reading and Musing The Word (Logos) of Christ in the prophets and apostles.

This fits the pattern from the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness called the ekklesia or synagogue: the godly Jews and early Christians were never disturbed on their REST day except reading and learning the Word in their isolated areas.  None but the God-abandoned Kings or Civil-Military-Clergy complex was allowed to be inside the gates.
.The Synagogue or Church ordained BECAUSE of musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity at Mount Sinai. There was no redemption for any of the older generation: the younger generation who engaged in instrumental idolatry were executed.
The Synagogue or Church of Christ ordained by Christ after God "turned the Levi tribe" over to worship the starry host.
The Synagogue or Restored Church of Christ by John Calvin.
John Calvin Calling for a Restoration of the Church of Christ.
This is the pattern practiced by the Godly people from the wilderness up to the time of Christ. Jesus patterned that READING in the Synagogue but GOING out to preach the Good News which removed the laded burden and burden laders.

This was the pattern practiced and commanded by Paul to Timothy and Peter.  Peter defined the RESOURCE as the Prophets by Christ made more certain by Jesus and recorded for out "memory" by the Apostles. Peter says that this resource is not to be private interpreted which means further expounded: this would repudiate the Words of Christ validated by signs and wonders.

Christ gave the spiritual gift of APT ELDERS defined by Paul to Titus as "already laboring to the point of exhaustion in preaching and teaching" as the only Pastor-Teachers of a local congregation. They COULD NOT conduct assembly without first EXCISING the cunning craftsmen or sophists: these are rhetoricians, singers, instrument players or actors. That was excluded for the church in the wilderness. Just common sense because A Church of Christ is a School of the Words of Christ in the prophets and apostles.
Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
        but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the [Educated by] foundation of the apostles and prophets,
        Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Ephesians 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple IN the Lord:
Ephesians 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Baptized believers receive A holy spirit or A good conscience so they can understand the Word of God which is HIDDEN from the Wise or Sophists: Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: speakers, singers and instrument players (Spirit says in Ezekiel 33)

The Words of Christ are SPIRIT and LIFE: the only source of revival. (John 6:63)
They are the only resource for worship IN THE SPIRIT as opposed to in the flesh or "worship centers."

The spirits of righteous men made PERFECT are translated into a heavenly kingdom. Jesus says the kingdom does not come with observation.  That means religious services demanding performers: that is defined as lying wonders of delusional people who believe that they can revive the world for which Jesus does not even pray.
It is not remotely possible to have ever read the Bible and get a hint that God is so petty that He can be honored by any kind of body worship which is legalism.

In Ephesians 4 Christ wants these APT elders to remove the speakers, singers or instrument players claiming a role and dole. Paul said that they by definition Lie in Wait to Deceive. They both LIE and have a hidden agenda.

Therefore, it is both libelous and blasphemy to use the tradition or traditional word 21 times always the RACA word against people who have never used Instruments or "machines for doing hard work, mostly making war or creating the SHOCK AND AWE of musical observations to which Jesus said, the Kingdom DOES NOT COME.

David Young at North Boulevard's Plan for Unity in Diversity.  Christ gifted APT elders as the only pastor-teachers to cast out the diversity of opinions so that the church could listen to the Word PREACHED by being READ for comfort and doctrine. Not much of a Christ-ordained pattern for a host of STAFF to ride on the backs of widows and honest workers. But, then He left us His Word which he said was SPIRIT and LIFE and it needs no confusing rhetoricians to help THEM READ what is written for our learning with NOTHING written for ceremonial legalism such as rhetoric, singing, playing or acting Jesus called HYPOCRITES like the lying pen of the Scribes.

The Diversities or Doubtful Disputations were outlawed in Romans 14  where Paul speaks about the marketplace where one's previous religion was identified by their diet.  Paul outlawed Doubtul Disputations which are private diversities which did not edify or TEACH the Word as the only purpose for having to mingle with different cultures. In Romans 15 Paul outlawed SELF-pleasure which eliminates rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or acting.  It was a REPROACH against Jesus whose nakedness was exposed as they musically mocked Him to the food of the Old Rugged Cross.

Anyone who PROMOTES any kind of performance music or musicians KNOWS and Plans to sow massive discord to CHASE OUT the faithful so the new TEMPLE can become a Theater for Holy Entertainment. The Persona of religious musicians was never very pretty.

The Serpent or Beast in the Garden of Eden was a musical enchanter(ess): he/she was cast as profane (David's halal or Chalal) into the Garden of Eden: Christ in the Prophets and Jesus in Revelation calls him/her
The Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17)
Who uses lusted after FRUITS (same as in Amos 8 prophetic type)
John identifies craftsmen (Sophists), singers, instrument players and Grinders at the millstone or prostitutes
John calls them Sorcerers and says that they will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.

The MARK:  is the lying wonders of musical performance
The BEAST is defined as a New Style of Instrumental Music and Satyric Dramas
The IMAGE is a song or sermon of self-speakers (sons of the Devil says Jesus) which forces everyone to give all of their attention (the only worship word) to THEM so that they are made "dumb before the slaughter" and can never hear the Word, Logos or the Regulative Principle.
        LOGOS is opposite to Pathos or the "preachers introductions and self references."
        Logos is Opposite to poetry, singing, playing instruments, drama, dancing or any "ministry" other than gathering as synagogue or ekklesia to hear the Word (only) PREACHED by being READ for Comfort and Doctrine.
David will claim that HE has the LEADERSHIP role and the ELDERS agree that they have a VISION to do three things God hates:
Check.gifHe hates the music in the holy place as Civil-Military-Clergy type of the Synagogue or Church of Christ.
        Amos 8 because music starves people for the bread of the Word of God.
                Religious music marked FRUITS in Amos 8 and Revelation 18.
        Music MEANS to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter. They musically mocked Jesus as prophesied.
        Christ's prophetic type in Isaiah 30 says that the sounds of Wind. String and Percussion instruments
            proves that God is driving His enemies into "Hell."

Check.gifHe hates the frequent tithes and offerings
Amos 4:4 Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:
Amos 4:5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Check.gifHe hates sowing discord so he has to be very careful to in boiling the frogs so they don't jump out of the frying pan.
        David Young PROMISES discord and defends it by lifting ideas out of context which refute him.
        Jesus said that HE did not judge but His Word (Logos or Regulative Principle) him in the last day.
Christ breathed (spirit, not a people) into the Prophets. A Church of Christ is built upon the Prophets and Apostles.
Proverbs 6:13 He winketh with his eyes, [flatter, make promises]
        he speaketh with his feet, [rub to pieces]
        he teacheth with his fingers;

THE ANTI-CHRIST THESIS

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you,

        Seek [worship] unto them that have familiar spirits,  [Witch of Endor, Nebel, Harp from Nabal]
        and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter:
                should not a people seek unto their God?
                for the living to the dead?

If you say that Psalm 33 supports SHOCK AND AWE you should know that a DISCIPLE falls on his face in AWE and remains silent because Nadab-Abihu and Hebrews 12 says that GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE. All of the instrumental passage point to God driving His enemies into Hell or into the Lake of Fire.

Abaddon or Apollyon unleashed as KING over the LOCUSTS or Muses: their job is to SEPARATE the good from the bad and hold the Kharagme Therion or the MARK OF THE BEAST being A new style of music and drama.

Aristotle: Melody Deceives: "Poets also make use of this in inventing words, as a melody "without strings" or "without the lyre"; for they employ epithets from negations, a course which is approved in proportional metaphors..

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..

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.." Click for more.

"Philodemos considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self-deceptive the view that
       
music mediated religious ecstasy.
        He saw the entire condition induced by the
noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit. (Paul called it mad or insane) He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly."

That is THE meaning of the revivals such as Cane Ridge of BOURBON County.

AS A MARK TO AVOID THE COMMAND IS FOR THE ELDERS AS PASTOR-TEACHERS PREACH THE WORD BY READING THE WORD FOR DOCTRINE AND COMFORT.  Jesus died to remove any jumpity pretender consigned to MAKE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE until we can get you to accept our mark of the beast. HERE IS WHY PEOPLE WANT TO GET YOU TO SING, SHOUT, DANCE, CLAP, PLAY INSTRUMENTS, HUG AND KISS when Jesus promises to be with us when we REST so that we can learn of HIM.
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.

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.

Any kind of a Musical Worship Minister accepts  the persona being ridiculed all over the world. Music from mystery MEANS to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter: This is applied to Messiah in Psalm 22 and Psalm 41 which means the Instrumental Warrior Class performing sorcery with loud instruments intend in the DSS to "Cut Messiah off at the pass."  Music was to call down the HOLOCAUST on those being defeated by the elders demanded "senior pastor."

        and to the testimony:  [The prophets by the Spirit OF Christ: 1 Pet 1:11; 2 Col 3; Rev 19:10]
        if they speak not according to this word,  [No what Christ called the Lying Pen of the Scribes]
        it is because there is no light in them.

[ignorance]

Wine, Women and Instruments CAUSED this ignorance of the Word in Amos 8 and Isaiah 5 when the BEAST take over the Vineyard after the KEEPER breaks down the WALL to invite the WORLD (for which Jesus does not pray) to come in, lie, cheat and steal the church house of widows and honest workers disenfranchised by tyrants.

Amos 5:21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

Amos 5:22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

Amos 5:24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

Amos 5:25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? 

Amos 5:26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

Amos 5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts.

Amos 6:1 WOE to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came

Amos 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;

Amos 6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;

Amos 6:7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed. 

For thus saith the Lord, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the Lord, even lovingkindness and mercies. Je.16:5

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

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

"In pagan traditions, musical instruments are invented by gods or demi-gods, such as titans. In the Bible, credit is assigned to antediluvian patriarchs, for example, the descendants of Cain in Genesis 4:21 [Handled Without Authority]. There is no other biblical tradition about the invention of musical instruments." (Freedman, David Noel, Bible Review, Summer 1985, p. 51).

Jeremiah 4:22 For my people is foolish,
    they have not known me;
    they are sottish children,
    and they have none understanding:
    they are wise to do evil,
    but to do good they have no knowledge.

iah 5:11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink;
     that continue until night, till wine inflame them!

Isaiah 5:12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts:
    but they regard not the work of the LORD,
    neither consider the operation of his hands.

Isaiah 5:13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity,  
    because they have no knowledge:
    and their honourable men are famished,
    and their multitude dried up with thirst.

Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell [infernus], hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory,
     and their multitude, and their pomp,
     and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

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 8:11

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. Amos 8:12

And I will turn your feasts [religious festivals] into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day. Am.8:10

THE LAW OF MOSES WAS IMPOSED BECAUSE OF INSTRUMENTAL IDOLATRY: IT AUTHORIZED ONLY TWO SILVER TRUMPETS AND OUTLAWED USING ANY VOCAL OR INSTRUMENTAL REJOICING IN THE SYNAGOGUE

The Spirit OF Christ breathed (spirit) the Word into the Writing Prophets. He defined the REST for the godly people then and in prophecy for the sabbath or PAUO rest he would give when He chased away or permitted the Levite performers to be burned up with their harps. PAUO, like Sabbath meant: STOP the speaking, singing, playing, acting, shouting or whatever: the reason Paul silences BOTH men and WOMEN who speak on their own in 1 Timothy 2 SO THAT "Everyone might be saved (safe) and Come to a Knowledge of the Truth."  That is the ONLY PURPOSE FOR THE ASSEMBLY along with the Lord's Supper which reminds everyone that THEY have nothing to add. This was the pattern of the Campbells and worked until the evangelists discovered that they could disobey the commission and come in out of the cold.

When Elders in Israel's Prophetic Type "set a king over us" he accepts that as ABDICATING the supreme authority and sets out to force Tithing for himsef, he selects a huge STAFF, takes away all authority and makes the Free Citizens slaves even to making INSTRUMENTS OF CHARIOTS: These were musical instruments and the confiscated young men were forced to run before the king's chariot warning everyone to fall on their face and worship the king: they were also the first to die in battle.  An ELDER cannot be APT and dominate:

David Young A New Beginning: Unity in a Changing World:  A Statement from the North Boulevard Elders and Preachers  February 1, 2009

Jesus almost last command was to GO into all of the world, make disciples and teach them what HE commanded to be taught and observed: He said that He ould be with us until the END OF THE WORLD.  It is a bit presumptions to take on the task CREATING unity among those whose DIVERSITIES do not believe what the  Word of God teaches.

This is part of the Frog Boiling Process: give plenty of alerts ignored by most. That is the Hegeling Dialectic: the Jubilee process was to DISSOCIATE people by a drum-beat denouncing (subtly and cunningly) the group which FEEDS you.  You will find the words  or traditionalism 21 times and "heritage" twice. The deceptive ploy often stated explicitly is that Evil or Ignorant godly ancestors just INVENTED not using musical instruments in what Bible readers know to be what the Spirit OF Christ ordained for the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness AFTER Israel fell into instrumental rejoicing: playing instruments and playing with one another in a perverted sense. See Romans 1 you don't need to read to become a doctor of the Law who takes away the key to knowledge says Jesus.

The Campbells:
Church is A School of Christ (only)

Worship is Reading and Musing the Word (only)

No one attempted to subvert the Word by using the PSALLO Word until the Disciples-Christian Churches in 1878. They cannot grasp that Psallo is rooted in making a bowstring twang to send forth a singing arrow  into the literal heart of Apollo, Abaddon, or Apollon who is the Leader of the Muses the SHEPHERDESSES and dirty adulterers.

Isaiah 59 to your children and children's children.

David Young A New Beginning: In the last recorded prayer Jesus offered before His crucifixion, He spoke these words: “I pray also for those who will believe in me ... that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you …. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me” (John 17:20, 23).

David wants to have UNITY with the Culture Sensitive Instrumental members by twisting a Church of Christ out of the hands of its founders.

        John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee
            the only true God,
            and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent
In 1 Timothy 2 Paul wanted silence so that the:
Men would lift holy palms to the WORD according to the Psalmists to prevent WRATH or an ORGAN which David proposed to cause to break out like the awakenings documented in history as witchcraft or demon worship.

Chastity and modesty, the choice inheritance of Hebrew womanhood, were foreign to the Greek conception of morality, and disappeared from Rome when Greek culture and frivolity entered. The Greeks made the shameless Phryne the model of the goddess Aphrodite, and lifted their hands to public prostitutes when they prayed in their temples." (Int Std Bible Ency., Woman, p. 3101).

ALL ABOUT EVE: men preforming the role of women

Rhea, is, therefore, the 'mother of lives,' the mystical Eve (ZOE), the 'mother of all living.'

It was thus, then, that Pythagoras established a most salutary system of regenerating the morals by means of "music" [Mantravidyâ].' (Op. cit. Kiessling's text, pp. 245, 246; see also Taylor, Iamblichus on the Mysteries, 2nd ed., pp. 130, 131, n.)

"Music and Mantras, therefore, were used by the Orphics
       to attract, or call down, the influence of the Mother of the Gods,

Thus Proclus in his Commentary on Euclid (ii) tells us that 'the Pole of the World is
called by the Pythagoreans the Seal of Rhea' (Myst. Hymns, p. 63).

Homer XIV. TO THE MOTHER OF THE GODS (6 lines)

(ll. 1-5) I prithee, clear-voiced Muse, daughter of mighty Zeus, sing of the mother of all gods and men.

She is well-pleased with the sound of rattles and of timbrels,
with the voice of
flutes and the outcry of WOLVES
and bright-eyed
LIONS, with echoing hills and wooded coombes.

The Women were to be silent and not exercise authentia which was  erotic and murderous.
The Purpose was that "everyone could be saved (or safe) and come to a knowledge of the truth.

Davidson (a famous church historian) thus describes the scene:

"Too much agitated to preach, he expressed his belief that there was a greater than he preaching and exhorted the people to let the Lord God Omnipotent reign in their hearts, and to submit to him, and their soul should live. Upon this, many broke silence and the renewed vociferations of the female before mentioned, were tremendous.
John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth:
        I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self
        with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Jesus had the assignment as the voice of the WORD or Logos or Regulative principle. He would receive the promise or ASSIGNMENT as Holy Spirit or the Breath of God in the Upper room.

John 17:6  have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me OUT OF the world:
        thine they were, and thou gavest them me;
        and they have kept thy word.

THAT'S NOT THE WHOLE MESSAGE: Jesus prayed for unity BASED ON HIS WORD and the EXCLUSION of the WORLD.  There is no urge to be "united" on the basis of personal opinions or sermons.

A Church of Christ is called OUT of the World and it will not tolerate the WORLD stealing the church house of widows so they can have their style. There are LOTS of musical churches and Spugeon could not invent a word vile enough to define a preacher who would accept people's money and NOT agree with them.

Christ has PreVented the World:
John 17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me 
        OUT
of the WORLD: thine they were, and thou gavest them me;
        and they have kept thy word.

The WORLD includes those who do not GLADLY RECEIVE THE WORD.  In Psalm 41 Judas was the Familiar Friend who would try to TRIUMPH OVER or ALARM Jesus. This is the "bocal or instrumental rejoicing" which Chris outlawed for the Church in the Wilderness.

Judas, the Son of Perdition, was OF the World: The Judas Bag was ALWAYS attached to the flute case of "wineskin" religious musicians.  You will remember that Psalm 41 prophesied that "Judas" would try to musically alarm or "triumph over" Jesus Christ.  The DSS version is explicit in proving that the Levites would have to brand "Messiah" as Beliar or Beel-zebul before they could "set ambush" and turn the army loose on Him.   Psalm 41 as the PATTERNISM for the latter day musical attack on Jesus.

Glosokomon (g1101) gloce-sok'-om-on; from 1100 (speaking in tongues) and the base of 2889; prop. a case to keep mouthpieces of wind-instruments in, i.e. (by extens.) a casket or (spec.) purse: - bag.

It is made up of two words:

1. Glossa (from Strong's g1100) means "speaking in tongues" especially an unacquired one.

2. Kosmos (g2889) means the "orderly arrangement" or the "adorning" world. this is derived from (g2864 or Komizo which means "to carry off."

Kosmos (g2889) kos'-mos; prob. from the base of 2865; orderly arrangement, i.e. decoration; by impl. the world (in a wide or nar˜row sense, includ. its inhab., lit. or fig. [mor.]): - adorning, world.

PAUL SILENCED THE PHYTHAGOREANS--ONE OF THE SECTS IDENTIFIED BY DIET IN THE MARKETPLACE

"Yet, through all there was an overarching harmony. The Greek word cosmos which we translate by universe originally meant beauty and harmony. The Pythagoreans discovered mathematical formulae for the musical harmonies. They believed in the harmony of the sounds produced by the movement of the stars. Therefore, they spoke of cosmic harmony of the spheres, each of which has a different sound, but all together creating a harmonious sound. If you delete the half-poetic, mythological elements from such ideas, then you can say that they had a universal, ecstatic interpretation of reality." (Tillich, Paul, A History of Christian Thought, Touchstone, p. 333).

THE meaning of "praise singing" and "singers" was that they could keep the gods from failing--AGAIN.  All such worship as the works of human hands (raising, clapping, waving or picking) is an effort to APPEASE God because you have no assurance.

APOPIS  also called Apep, Apepi, or Rerek, ancient Egyptian demon of chaos, who had the form of a serpent and, as the foe of the sun god, Re, represented all that was outside the ordered cosmos. Although many serpents symbolized divinity and royalty, Apopis threatened the underworld and symbolized evil. Each night Apopis encountered Re at a particular hour in the sun god's ritual journey through the underworld in his divine bark. Seth, who rode as guardian in the front of Re's bark, attacked him with a spear and slew him, but the next night Apopis, who could not be finally killed, was there again to attack Re. The Egyptians believed that they could help maintain the order of the world and assist Re by performing rituals against Apopis.

Rev. 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle,
        that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place,
        where she is nourished for a time, and times,
        and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
That is why the Church of Christ is suffering reproaches: it cannot court fame and fortune and favor:
Heb. 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood,
        suffered without the gate.
Heb. 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, (barracks, marketplace)
         bearing his reproach.
Heb. 13:14 For here have we no continuing city,
        but we seek one to come
.
Heb. 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually,
        that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Rev. 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman,
        that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. {banqueting}
G3789 ophis of'-is Probably from G3700 (through the idea of sharpness of vision); a snake, figuratively (as a type of sly cunning) an artful malicious person, especially Satan:—serpent. equiv. to drakōn in Hes.Th.322, 825: metaph., ptēnon argēstēn ophin, of an arrow, A.Eu.181.

The "serpent" in the garden of Eden is defined as a Musical Enchanter(ess).  It is related to brass bell-metal and to the flute.  

THE SON OF PERDITION MAY BE ON SCHEDULE

John 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are OF THEE
John 17:8 For I have given unto them the WORDS which thou gavest me;
..........and they have received them,
..........and have known surely that I came out from thee,
..........and they have BELIEVED that thou didst send me.
John 17:9 I pray for THEM: I NOT for the world,
.......... but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

The WORLD points to Pythagoras one of the "diet" sects Paul silenced in Romans 14 to make the ekklesia, synagogue or school of the Word possible in Romans 15.

Pythagoras and the Musical Worship of the Starry Host.  This defines the STAR worship in Jerusalem

John 17:10
And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
John 17:11
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee.
.......... Holy Father, keep through thine OWN NAME
.......... those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

The "Son" never speaks on His own: what He hears from the Father He simply articulates.

John 17:12
While I was with them in the world,
.......... I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept,
.......... and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition;
.......... that the scripture might be fulfilled.
The Word of God is LOGOS which is defined as The Regulative Principle: it is exclusive of preacher speak (rhetoric), singing, playing instruments, acting or anything that a human can OFFER as having any saving value.

Only those who gladly RECEIVE Christ's words were baptized: their sins were remitted and they received A holy spirit or A good conscience or consciousness: that means that they have a co-perception of the Words of Christ which are Spirit and Life.  They are washed with water INTO the Word or into the SCHOOL of Jesus Christ. The only TEXTBOOK is the Prophets and apostles and the command was to SPEAK which is what teachers do with disciples. SPEAK is opposite of any musical form human imagination can supply to ASSIST GOD.

Jesus spoke what God BREATHED (spirit) into Him without METRON which most often means WITHOUT METER because no one in recorded history did not know that "deceivers set their lies to melodies to deceive the ignorant."

Jesus said that if people obeyed His command and pattern the WOULD BE hated, despised, rejected and even murdered.

Therefore, Jesus prayed for unity AMONG those who obeyed the command to SPEAK His Word as the only pattern for an assembly since the Lord's supper is also a teaching or showing forth activity.

We are commanded to come OUT of the World which includes most of humanity.   Jesus doesn't even PRAY for the World and He said that God HIDES from the wise or sophists which are preachers, singers, instrument players or actors: Paul outlawed these activity in romans 15 as Areskos or the Latin Placeo including any and all musical or theatrical performers and performances: these are defined as the LADED BURDENS so Jesus didn't authorize any Laded Burden: none at all. Unity comes when the Elders as the only pastor-teachers teach that which has been taught.
John 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world,
        that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them,
        because they are not OF the world,
        even as I am not OF the world.
John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world,
        but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy WORD is truth.
John 17:18 As thou hast sent ME into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

There can be no massive STAFF in A Church of Christ. The evangelists are commanded to GO into the world and preach what HE commanded to be taught.  If you do that there are no pagan rituals to divide.

Jesus doesn't COME with observation: that means Religious Services or observations.
Religious Worship services are defined as Threskia or IMPURE religion.

John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself,
        that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  [Thy WORD is the only TRUTH)
John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone,
        but for them also which shall believe on me through their WORD;

THE ONLY PROOF TO THE LOST SPIRITS JESUS WAS SENT TO SEEK AND SAVE IS THE WORD:

John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art IN me, and IN  thee,
            that they also may be one IN us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
        that they may be one, even as we are one:
John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;
        and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am;
        that they may behold my glory,
        which thou hast given me:
        for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
John 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee:
        but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
John 17:26 And I have declared unto them thy name,
        and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

UNITY can exist only when the Elders as only Pastor-Teachers SPEAK that which has been spoken and taught.
There can be no DISUNITY needing human input for those who obey the command from the wilderness onward to PREACH the Word (only) by READING the WORD for Comfort and Doctrine. Christ tolerates no ACTORS.

DAVID YOUNG IS SPEAKING OF DELIBERATELY SOWING DISCORD BY SUBVERTING THE WORD AS THE ONLY MEANS OF UNITY.

David Young A New Beginning:  Ever since our beginning in 1947, the North Boulevard Church of Christ has sought to live up to Jesus’ prayer for unity among our members. We seek to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Eph. 4:3).  

Jesus gifted elders who are APT TO TEACH as the only Pastor-Teachers: Deacons are also defined as teachers or ministers who can be SENT OUT.  He ordained that the Elders SILENCE all of the cunning craftsmen or Sophists meaning preachers, singers, instrument players and actors. These all intend to SILENCE the singular role of being A School of Christ through His word in the Prophets and Apostles.  The elders are HOBBLED: Their authority is to teach that which has been taught. They do not get to decide to VIOLATE all of the direct commands silencing preachers, singers, instrument players, actors and dancers. The word MUSIC demands dancing or moving the BODY in symphony with the music as a sexual activity..

EPHESIANS 2 COMES BEFORE EPHESIANS 4

We are saved BY Grace THROUGH faith when we obey what Grace Who has appeared TEACHES us to be baptized.
We are KEPT SAFE as we walk BY FAITH which comes only by Hearing the Word of Go.

Disciples of Christ always ask: "Kept SAFE from WHAT?"

THE PAGAN THESIS:

RELIGIONISTS OUTSIDE OF GOD'S GRACE

THE CHRISTIAN ANTITHESIS:

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon [educated by] the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
        Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
\

EDUCATION by the WORD of Christ is the ONLY meaning of worship defined as GIVING ATTENTION TO God.  Theatrical and Musical performers are Purpose Driven to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" by making certain that you give ATTENDANCE to them 24/7: where your money is there is your FAITH.

EPHESIANS 3 COMES BEFORE EPHESIANS 4

WE the laity and fleecees already KNOW the only purpose for A Church of Christ:

Ephesians 3 The Nature of The Holy Spirit (Word) and CHURCH

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:  [The Word]
Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: Ephesians 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

III.  Force or meaning of a word, Lys.10.7, Pl. Cra.394b

Lysias, Against Theomnestus 1
Lys. 10 7  For my part, gentlemen, I hold that your concern is not with mere words but with their meaning, and that you are all aware that those who have killed someone are murderers, and that those who are murderers have killed someone. For it was too much of a task for the lawgiver to write all the words that have the same effect; but by mentioning one he showed his meaning in regard to them all.

[394b] who considers only their medicinal value, they seem the same, and he is not confused by the additions. So perhaps the man who knows about names considers their value and is not confused if some letter is added, transposed, or subtracted, or even if the force of the name is expressed in entirely different letters. So, for instance, in the names we were just discussing, Astyanax and Hector, none of the letters is the same, except T,

SEE EPHESIANS 4 WHICH COMMANDS THE ELDERS TO ELEMINATE THE DIVERSITY BY GIVING THE BOOT TO CUNNING CRAFTSMEN OR SOPHISTS.

Christ gave gifted men to make sure that  what people call "worship" could never happen. Only after excluding the rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors etc is it possible to conduct the assembly which is a WORD OF GOD ONLY teaching activity. If leaders permit or promote what Paul excludes then they destroy the unity.  See Ephesians 4.

In Romans 15 Paul silenced all of the performing artists and commanded that we "use one mind and one mouth to SPEAK that which is WRITTEN for our LEARNING" or Scripture for our Comfort or as PARAKLETE in Christ's absence. That is the ONLY way for unity as Jesus affirmed in Romans 17: If you all PREACH the Word by READING the Word in a systematic form as in the Synagogue or Ekklesia or by the Episcopalians, there can be NO DISUNITY.

Cunning craftiness has the same meaning as SOPHOS:
1Cor. 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you
        seemeth to be wise [sophos] in this world,
        let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

The Greeks observed and taught that the SOPHIA race of men were given to music and pederasty as an approved practice.
The LOGOS or WORD people were devoted to the mental, spiritual or rational: Isaiah 8 says that if MEN do not teach the LAW (not instruments) and Testimony (spirit OF Christ) it is because there is NO LIGHT IN THEM.

David Young says: We want to obey the biblical exhortation “that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought” (1 Cor. 1:10).

However, David's thesis is that THERE IS DIVERSITY and therefore we have to all agree to HIS agenda and then there will be no division.  However, you have to despise the Word and despise people before you can betray the trust of the founders.

Discord happens only by those who deny verse 5

1 Corinthians 1:5 That in every thing
    ye are enriched by him,
          in all utterance, and
          in all knowledge;

The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with justice and righteousness. Isaiah 33:5
        He will be the sure foundation [security] for your times,
        a rich store of salvation
                and wisdom and knowledge;
                the fear of the LORD
                        is the key to this treasure Isaiah 33:6

But the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites meaning Rhetoricians, singers, instrument players and audience are p;urpose driven to TAKE AWAY the Key to Knowledge.

Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God,
        I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world,
        may be required of this generation;
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias,
        which perished between the altar and the temple:
        verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers!
        for ye have taken away the key of knowledge:
        ye entered not in yourselves,
        and them that were entering in ye hindered.
Luke 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
Luke 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

1 Corinthians 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift;
          waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1 Corinthians 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end,
          that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful,
          by whom ye were called
          unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

The WORD of God was commanded to be READ and discussed by the Church beginning in the wilderness.

There is nothing you can do to ENHANCE or ASSIST the way God in Christ has communicated.

It is ANTI-Christian to think that you are the MISSING LINK in the power of the Gospel presented in simple words.

Now, that Jesus Christ is our Teacher and His Grace was given in the form of teaching and we are commanded to teach that which has been taught, it IS possible to teach the same thing is we teach THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN.

WE WILL SHOW THAT PAUL DEFINED THE CHURCH IN EPHESIANS 4:  Click to Read

  1. God gave these leaders (no TOWERS or PULPITS in God's house says Isaiah and Paul) to conduct SCHOOL of the Word of God -- only. 
  2. This would equip every believer to be able to WITHSTAND the "blowing of a hot east wind" seeking to naviate everyone away from the Word:
  3. this points specificially to sophists: preachers, singers and instrument players John and the Greek language identifies as SORCERERS.
David Young A New Beginning:  We want to obey the biblical exhortation “that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought” (1 Cor. 1:10).

David means that YOU should agree with HIM and there will be no DISUNITY.  Christ DEMANDS heresy as the only way to weed out the chaff or viper race for burning. Heresy is the same as ODING or ARESKOS OR PLACEO which defines all of the hypocritic arts of preaching, singing, playing instruments and acting: The HERETIC was the slaughter priest who LIFTED THEM UP TO CUT THEIR THROATS.  The Instrument players were called PARASITES meaning "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." Well, it works: I cannot get a peep out of the elders.

"Now that we have been so successful, we have to CHANGE what we are doing to BE LIKE THE WORLD so we can WIN more of the world who will bring in more division.  It would be better to teach them and not let them destroy your church." We will cover Ephesians further but this is the SOLE PURPOSE of church.

Eph. 4:3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Eph. 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
        evangelists
; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph. 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, 

        for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: [education only]
Eph. 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of THE faith,
        and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
        unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

THESE ORIGINALLY INSPIRED GIFTED MEN GUARDED AGAINST SELF-IMPOSED LEGALISM

1Corinthians 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
1Corinthians 1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
1Corinthians 1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

Jesus said MY WORDS are Spirit and Life: David says that singing, playing, dancing, shouting, hugging and kissing is from A HOLY SPIRIT which means "blasphemy."

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus:
        worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

1Corinthians 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1Corinthians 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren,
        how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

IF YOU ARE A WISE MAN OR SOPHIST GOD HIDES FROM YOU AND JESUS WILL NOT SPEAK TO YOU

Sophist. preachers, singers, instrument players especially in a temple or shrine.

1Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; [SOPHISTS]
        and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Corinthians 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen,
        yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Corinthians 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
        who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Corinthians 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

KNOWN BY DISCIPLES OF CHRIST:

1Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren,

        I would not that ye should be ignorant,
        how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

1Corinthians 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Corinthians 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
1Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink:
        for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them:
        and that Rock was Christ.
1Corinthians 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased:
        for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1Corinthians 10:6 Now these things were our examples,
        to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

David Young Leaders and Elders: God has largely granted North Boulevard a spirit of unity and peace throughout the past six decades.
        As the congregation grows larger, however, and as more people come to us from diverse backgrounds,
        we must work harder to maintain the unity of the Spirit.

As a matter of Fact the congregation has grown SMALLER by losing those who were DISCORDED and sucking in the seekers looking for a BIBLE SCHOOL and tolerating sermons.

David Young thinks, as schooled, that Jesus wants UNITY IN DIVERSITY.  That ignores Ephesians 4.

The Gospel: Jesus invited the twos and threes to come OUTSIDE of the camp or marketplace to REST and LEARN OF ME.
The order to Moses in Exodus 18 was to establish honest and not mercinary leaders over as few as ten families.  The would be quarantined from attending the sacrificial system which God had not commanded.  The practice was to assemble in isolated villages to REST (from religionists), Read and Rehearse the Word. That practice never changed and that is the MESSAGE of the command to SPEAK that which is written for our learning by EXLUDING the Pleasure-seekers meaning rhetoricians, singers, instrument players, actors or any visual display which in prophecy REPROACHED Messiah which meant to expose His nakedness.  The Levites were warriors and the vocal and instrumental shouting threatened to Robe, Rape and Execute anyone who did not flee at the "music" as the primary purpose in war or in pseudo-churches.

No: it is presumptious to think that you can create unity out of diversity: regardless who is attracted by the para-church institutions, the elders have the sole authority to Teach that which has been taught.

There is NO denominational group which would STOP teaching their views or letting the INVADERS take over the church.  Only in churches of Christ is the PLOY of unity used to mean that MY AGENDA WILL BE CARRIED OUT EVEN IF IT TAKES A DECADE OF FROG BOILING.

David Young North Boulevard Church of Christ: Today more than ever we find among our members different expectations, maturity levels, styles, customs, needs,
        and ideas about how to do the work of the church.
        The call to connect the message of Christ to so many different people challenges us every day at North Boulevard.

YOU can do nothing but PREACH the WORD (only) by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine. The WORD does not depend on any HUMAN condition or expectations: In fact, Jesus said the Kingdom DOES NOT COME to the religious observations which create DISCORD any time human imagination adds a jot or tittle.

It was just as true when Jesus came to SHUT DOWN the Diversities and tolerated NOTHING but those devoted to the WORD as the Regulative Principle OUTLAWING writing songs or sermons (calls them hypocrites): He CAST OUT the flute girls who wanted to ASSIST Jesus in His Work.  He consigned the PIPERS to the marketplace who wanted to get people to sing or LAMENT and DANCE that Dionysus shuffle while getting initiated into the priesthood.

When the congregation ASSEMBLED itself (thank you very much) they followed the Commands, Examples and Inferences for anyone who knows the difference between a Disciple of Christ and a Worship of songs and sermons. When the PREACHING has been done by READING the WORD (only) for Comfort and Doctine, they DISMISS themselves maybe with the PATTERN of Jesus by SPEAKING a HYMN and then GOING OUT.

David Young North Boulevard Church of Christ:  The Scriptures provide certain non-negotiable guidelines for how to live out the message of Christ, including how to do ministry, how to witness to the culture around us, how to live holy lives, and how to conduct our assemblies.

The Scriptures are given for our LEARNING: the only task of the elders was to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine. True MINISTERS are deacons or have a GO BUTTON and if they do not GO with a Tent-Making job they were victims of a PHOEBE type who got them a JOB or got them a TICKET on the next boat leaving Cenchrea (her assembly was at Corinth)>

As a matter of fact Jesus SENT OUT MINISTERS to expose the lost spirits to the Word and then move on.

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his WORD were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
After the fall back into Instrumental Idolatry of the Egyptian (etal) trinity unde the golden calf(s), God sentenced them back to Babylon (Amos 8; Acts 7).   The godly people were commanded how to call and conduce the ASSEMBLY called the Synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the Wilderness: it had TWO pieces to its ACTS of assembly never called a worship service:

EXCLUSIVE: they were commanded to silence triumph over as vocal or instrumental rejoicing as well as any loud personal opinions.
INCLUSIVE: of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God.

They had one godly, non mercinary APT sub-elder to guide and teach groups as small as ten families: that is still the pattern for what they call SKUL.

Paul repeats that in Romans, Ephesians and Collossinans with NO MUSICAL HINT: the ODE and PSALLO were, like in 1 Corinthians 14, kept SILENT of in the heart.

ODE is the Opposite of LEXIS or the LOGOS forms of speech.
LEXIS or Speak is the opposite of ODE.
There is no command, example or inference of any congregational singing in the Bible with or without instruments.
Singing as an ACT was imposed with massive discord in the year 373 after Constantine let unwashed pagans become bishops.

David Young Ex Cathedra says: Beyond these non-negotiable instructions, however, the Scriptures permit Christians and churches to exercise considerable freedom and to apply God’s Word in merciful ways.

That's true: however, a preacher or kerusso is a HERALD: He is limited by the command to GO and teach what Jesus commanded to be taught. That includes the PROPHETS by the Spirit OF Christ and the prophecies made more certain.  Peter said that this RECORD left for our memory cannot be private interpreted or further expanded.  The LIBERTIES of the preacher cannot be extended for anyone but himself.

The elders are commanded to teach that which HAS BEEN TAUGHT and remove anyone who tries to teach that which HAS NOT BEEN written for our learning.

The congregation is LIBERATED from the self-pleasure or PLACEO which includes all of the performing arts and crafts: that is the mental excitement or LADED BURDEN which prevents "using one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning" or "Scripture for our comfort.

Paul silenced both men and women who would bring on wrath or ORGY and just be silent and sit down so that "we might all be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth."

What David and the elders propose to NEGOTIATE into the assembly is radically condemned and excluded by the Spirit of Christ. That is why the LOGOS or Regulative principle is to be PREACHED by being READ for Comfort and Doctrine.

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:
       
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
2Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2Peter 2:17 These are wells without water,
        clouds that are carried with a tempest;
        to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
2Peter 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity,
        they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness,
        those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
2Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty,
         they themselves are the servants of corruption:
        for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
2Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions
        of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
        they are again entangled therein, and overcome,
        the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

That's why WE do not give a hired person the right to RULE OVER us and promise LIBERTY which we had before the preacher's became doctors of the law.

If you obey Christ's command from the Wilderness ONWARD by example and further commands you cannot APPLY God's Word in an unmerciful way.  In fact, the Word is not subject to private interpretation or FURTHER EXPOUNDING. That, says Peter, would despise the Spirit OF Christ in the Prophets and the Epistles left by eye-- and ear-- witnesses of the risen Christ who CERTIFIED the Prophecies.  CHRIST DEFINES THE ASSEMBLY BOTH INCLUSIVELY AND EXCLUSIVELY. No mortal gets to be CO-MESSIAH.

The Command is to SPEAK that which is written for our LEARNING and Scripture for COMFORT.
If you are a believer then you PREACH the WORD by READING the Word. The overseer in the synagogue made certain that the reader did not even add a commentary by an inflection.  Godly people LISTEN while God speaks.

David Young “Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom,  because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!” (James 2:12-13).

IF YOU USE THE TALENTED WHEN YOU ARE COMMANDED TO SPEAK AS THE ORACLE OF GOD YOU ARE GUILTY OF A FATAL SIN.

For if there come unto your assembly [synagogue] a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; James 2:2

And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: James 2:3

Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? James 2:4

Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? James 2:5

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture,
        Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: James 2:8

But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin,
        and are convinced of the law as transgressors. James 2:9


James 2:12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

Liberty: Eleutheria freedom FROM a thing. Christ set US free from CLERGY who lades burden. Liberty from tribute,  freedom of speech, from taxation

Plat. Laws 698a they inevitably display their ignorance, inasmuch as by their acts they declare that the things reputed to be honorable and noble in a State are never anything but dross compared to silver and gold.

David Young A New Beginning:   How do WE exercise the freedom Christ has given us in such a way that reaches the most people with the Good News
       
while at the same time maintaining the unity of the body?
        Most churches wrestle with this tension. So do we at North Boulevard.

Freedom means FREEDOM FROM: WE don't exercise OUR freedom to enslave YOU and make you pay for it.  THE gospel is "come to me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you REST." Rest for the church in the wilderness means STOP IT.  And the second part of the gospel is "Come learn of ME."  If Christ in the prophets and apostles has not left a record then it is NOT Jesus teaching you while IMPOSING the burden which points to the singing styles sop popular in "church."

Since WE cannot bestow FREEDOM by anything that comes out of the human imagination--outlawed and evil continually--WE have no authority to promise freedom WHILE conspiring to add more legalistic rituals.

LO! Jesus gave ME the liberty FROM any human opinion or ACT of Worship.  No one has the authority to TOP LOAD a host of MINISTERS because neither Jesus nor Paul nor church history gives YOU the funding to exercise YOUR dominance over me.

YOU just obey Christ command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word and WE will obey the command to SILENCE the self pleasure of all of the theatrical crowd so that WE can use ONE MIND and ONE MOUTH to speak or mutually confess that which is written for our learning.  If YOU decide that you have to digest and burp tidbits of THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN the YOU have achieved some demogaugic powr over the LAITY.

WE WRESTLE means the Preacher as LEADER: preachers who dominate elders not APT to obey the command to an elder are the ONLY SOURCE OF DISUNITY.  LaGard Smith said that if your fired all of the Youth Ministers the sowing of discord would cease and people could escape having to lie about a LAW OF GIVING.

Ephesians 6 We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood with Lifeless Instruments or Carnal Weapons.
Eph. 6:4 And, ye fathers
        provoke not your children to wrath:
        but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Provoking to anger through deception is a very nasty thing. Wrath in the religious sense is to provoke the children into pagan idolatry often as a fit of anger created by false preachers.  If you cannot provoke to wrath can you force them to celebrate wrath. Pagan rituals intended to express the anger of the goddesses who were not given their worship.

Would that I could go to Cyprus, the island of Aphrodite, where the Loves, who soothe [405]  mortals' hearts, dwell, and to Paphos, fertilized without rain by the streams of a foreign river flowing with a hundred mouths. Lead me there, Bromius, Bromius, god of joy who leads the Bacchae, [410]  to Pieria, beautiful seat of the Muses, the holy slope of Olympus. There are the Graces, there is Desire; there it is [415]  lawful for the Bacchae to celebrate their rites.

Pelion, and among them Apollo, [Abaddon, Apollyon] sweeping the seven-tongued lyre with a golden plectrum, [25] led all types of strains. And the Muses  [sorcerers Rev 18]  began with a prelude to Zeus, then sang first of divine Thetis and of Peleus; how Hippolyte, the opulent daughter of Cretheus, wanted to trap him with deceit. With elaborate planning she persuaded her husband, the watcher of the Magnesians, to be a partner in her plot, and she forged a false story; [30] that Peleus had made an attempt on her [31] in Acastus' own bed. But the opposite was true; for she often begged him and coaxed him with all her heart, but her reckless words provoked his temper.
        There joyful bands welcome the god with the cry of reed-pipes, and contend with the bold strength of their limbs. [40] The fortune that is born along with a man decides in every deed.  And you, Euthymenes from Aegina, have twice fallen into the arms of Victory and attained embroidered hymns.

David Young A New Beginning: This document and the accompanying spoken lessons delivered at North Boulevard on February 15 and 22, 2009,
        represent the general position of the North Boulevard elders and preaching ministers
        regarding how to maintain the unity of the body
             while at the same time exercising the freedom Christ has given us
             in order to communicate the message of Christ to a changing world around us


WHY, AS AN EARLY RESTORATION PREACHERS SAID TO THE SIMPLE SIMONS: "SEND THEM OUT."

We do not use lifeless instruments, or carrnal weapons nor wrestle with bows, missils or harps.

Eph. 6:12 For we WRESTLE not against flesh and blood, 
        but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
        against spiritual wickedness in high places

-Eur. Ba. 775 Pentheus
Already like fire does this insolence of the Bacchae blaze up, a great reproach for the Hellenes. [780] But we must not hesitate. Go to the Electran gates, bid all the shield-bearers and riders of swift-footed horses to assemble, as well as all who brandish the light shield and pluck [psallo] bowstrings with their hands, so that we can make an assault against [785] the Bacchae. For it is indeed too much if we suffer what we are suffering at the hands of women.

Eph. 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with TRUTH
        and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph. 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph. 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, 
        wherewith ye shall be able to
quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

James A. Harding understood all of the commands, examples, inferences and most recorded history;

"The pastor is not a necessity. He is a FUNGUS GROWTH upon the church, the body of Christians, DWARFING its growth, PREVENTING its development of its members; and until the church GETS RID of him it will NEVER prosper as it should. In the Bible we can find all the necessities.

Paul addresses the congregation, the elders and deacons who usually get boooted by the "preachers" before they can become senior pastor and demote the elders to advising the pastor

Jesus Christ put HIS message in the Prophets and Apostles: He commanded that the EVANGELISTS GO into all of the world and COMMUNICATE the good news that the laded burdens and burden laders had been all burned up in Jerusalem to end their Covenant with Death and Hell.

The Savior is STILL the king over His kingdom, the only High Priests over His invisible Kingdom and still the BREATH (spirit) of God by protecting HIS Words until the end of time.

The Changed Culture has not changed since the Musical Enchantress or "singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of eden" caused the first fall without redemption.  Why would fulfilling the PROPHECY of the Babylon Mother of harlots who USES lusted after fruits as speakers, singers and instrument players performing the role of SORCDERY be poured over people's head just because the CULTURE has returned to the alley catism of "marrying and giving in marriage" meaning the Hiros Gamos or holy prostitution of the BRIDES and BRIDEGROOMS of Revelation 18: Unesss someone wants to facilitate Casting us alive into the Lake of Fire?

David Young A New Beginning: This document is not a creedal statement [it is a seed-planting], nor is it intended to summarize every core belief at North Boulevard. There are many important matters of faith not treated in this document.

Christ has Prempted:
Rather, this document is intended to explain to the congregation the spiritual criteria the leadership at North Boulevard
        uses to make decisions about how to do ministry, [Jesus did that}
        how to communicate the Good News,                    
[Jesus did that: SEND THEM OUT]
        how to conduct our assemblies, and the like.          
[Jesus did that]

Furthermore, this document is not a planning document intended to prepare the church for any particular changes we might make as a church.

But we KNOW that is not a fact: that is the MANTRA of the REVEALING OF THE KINGDOM and Jesus said "don't go there: the kingdom of God is WITHIN you and does not come with RELIGIOUS OBSERVATIONS]

Rather, the document is intended to describe our general approach to the work of the church—
        an approach that we hope honors God both by engaging our heritage
        and by speaking intelligibly in a changing world.


  1. WE ENGAGE our heritage but
  2. WE speak INTELLIGIBLY in a changing KOSMOS to whom God does not speak and Jesus would not pray.

  1. Heritage to be ENGAGED means the ignorance of REJECTING the use of "machines for doing hard work, mostly in making war and creating the SHOCK AND AWE of religious theater.
  2. God associates the mechanical nose by the invention of brass and strings from twanging bows (which creates panic) with the DEVIL in the Garden of Eden as the singing and harp-playhing prostitute, to the Mother of harlots (Revelation 17) using lusted after FRUITS (same as in Amos) as speakers, singers, instrument players, craftsmen or STAFF and the piping noise of the millstone which located the prostitute.
  3. Therefore, to claim that faithful people INVENTED NOT using these Devil-sourced sounds which attact the wave nature of creation because they were NOT INTELLIGENT is a lie, slander and blasphemy because it DESPISES the word of God from Genesis to Revelation.

THE WORD "HERITAGE" IS A RACA WORD INTENDED TO MAKE THE LAMBS SILENT: THE ROLE OF MUSIC.

  1. The WORLD is the KOSMOS speaking of imitating the Music of the Spheres with loud, sweet INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC.
  2. Jesus said that He does not PRAY for the World.
  3. He is not OF the World and the lost spirits He was sent to SEEK and save are not OF the World.
  4. So, intelligibly speaking to a changing WORLD back to its Babylonian Roots is PROOF that the LOCUSTS or MUSES with Apollyon as the Worship Leader is doing something of BIBLICAL PROPORTION and just in time: right on the nose.

WE the laity and fleecees already KNOW the only purpose for A Church of Christ:

Ephesians 3 The Nature of The Holy Spirit (Word) and CHURCH
Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ 
 
for you Gentiles
A Church of Christ is built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles: no further expounding permitted.
Ephesians 3:2  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to youward:
Ephesians 3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) No preacher permitted.
Ephesians 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:  [The Word]
Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, Ephesians 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: Ephesians 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; being rooted and grounded in love,




Is Parallel To


Ephesians 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye,
Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly
          above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church
      by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

David Young A New Beginning: The document is also intended to encourage YOU, the members of North Boulevard, to join the LEADERSHIP (preacher)
        as we seek a balance between this continuity with the past
        and a sincere effort to communicate the Good News in the language of the present.


THERE HE GOES AGAIN: 

  1.         The PAST is the old TRADITIONALISM which is Bible based.
  2.        But, He is SINCERE in disclosing a NEW WAY to communicate the GOOD NEWS which our ignorant fathers and grandmothers wer simply NOT able to speak

David Young uses tradition or traditionalism 21 times: YOU silly people WILL believe a lie if it is told often and with force. However, this "tradition" (a RACA word) began in the Church in the wilderness AFTER the WE or nobility fell into the instrumental idolatry of the Egyptian Trinity under the golden calf which Paul in 1 Corinthians 10 calls DEMON WORHSIP: just as in the 'awakenings."

Must have missed Jesus 101a: Jesus commanded the Apostles to SPEAK the Words which God BREATHED (spirit) into HIM. Now, postmodernists CLAIM that no one can know anything for certain. However, for a PRICE, always for a price THEY can peak with INTELLEGINCE which Socrates or Jesus or Augustine could NOT speak.  This is another claim that a "spirit" told me to command instrumental music or I had a VISION to take the name of Christ off the public confession and ADD instrumental Rock and Roll by the females and effeminate.

Arousal foms of singing (the laded burden) with or without instruments has been the New Style of music which is one definition of the Beast in Revelation. It was the singing and harp playing protitute in the garden of Eden to the Babylon mother of harlots (Reve 17) who uses "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos) as performance preachers, singers and instrument players. Our continuity with the past began with Christ Who ordained the church in the wilderness.

It was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God only. What honorable disciples do.
It was EXCLUSIVE of "vocal or instrumental rejoicing."      What only dishonorable people would do when God is speaking when the elders teach that which has been taught.

The Synagogue in the wilderness was the ekklesia or church: it was never more than a school of the Word of God.
No Biblical scholar can have missed that. The directly commanded way to communicate any of God's Word was to PREACH it by READING it and discussing.

THE SYNAGOGUE.

We weren't sincere under YOUR system but if we add music which Jesus and all recorded history defines as one of the hypocritic  arts the you will be happy that we saved you from sin.  Of Ezekiel 33 where Christ defined the preachers, singers and instrument players hypocrites:

JFB 30. Not only the remnant in Judea, but those at the Chebar, though less flagrantly, betrayed the same unbelieving spirit. talking against thee--Though going to the prophet to hear the word of the Lord, they criticised, in an unfriendly spirit, his peculiarities of manner and his enigmatical style (Eze 20:49); making these the excuse for their impenitence. Their talking was not directly "against" Ezekiel, for they professed to like his ministrations; but God's word speaks of things as they really are, not as they appear.

Vulgate translates, "They turn thy words into a song of their mouths." heart goeth after covetousness--the grand rival to the love of God; therefore called "idolatry," and therefore associated with impure carnal love,

as both alike transfer the heart's affection from the Creator to the creature

He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. Matthew 13:22

That IS postmodernism!  Sectarians love to deceive the lambs by telling them that NOT using the permorming ARTISTS (smile) is just something WE imposed because WE were legalistic.

NO ONE IN RECORDED HISTORY PRIOR TO 1878 EVER TRIED TO USE THE BIBLE TO JUSTIFY PERFORMANCE SINGING AND INSTRUMENTS.

ALL of the Bible, church theologians and founders of denominations repudiated musical performance.

The ALL knew that it was OUTLAWED and destructive to the purpose driving the church which was EDUCATION ONLY.

The command to the elders was to "teach that which has been taught." People are NOT fools: they can understand a 2,000 year old statement even if postmodern theeologians say you CANNOT.

       THE LEADERSHIP:
        We know that such an effort may pose a constant challenge,
        but with God’s help and with patience and forbearance on the part of the church, [YOU]
        WE believe taking the challenge head on will be well worth the effort
        in reaching the lost and helping the saved to mature.

WE will have to upset YOUR comfort zones but WE will hurt you, sow discord and chase many out of their own synagogue so that WE can engage in what is always from Genesis to Revelation an outbreak of WRATH or ORGY while worshiping the Babylon Mother of Harlots with Abaddon or Apollyon as the LEADER of the musicians: the new SHEPHERDS.

Why not just ask any of the obsolete purple hair widows and they will read you some of the olden BIBLE made obsolete by or changed culture. WOW, AWESOME, that culture is always a changing on us.

The North Boulevard Elders, John Risse, and David Young

STATEMENT FROM THE NORTH BOULEVARD LEADERSHIP

1. We intend to be obedient to the Scriptures.

I don't believe that!

We Believe

David Young North Boulevard Church of Christ:  All of North Boulevard’s leaders [Jesus failed to mention preachers] want North Boulevard to be a church
        that obeys the clear teachings of the Bible
        and that seeks the same experience of Christ that the New Testament church sought.
        We believe what the Psalms declare:

David means threatending preaching, singing, shouting, rolling on the floor, hugging, kissing, barking up trees. The only EXPERIENCE a Disciple or STUDENT of Christ has is of "diligently seeking Him" and starving to death for the lack of the Word (Amos 8).  The Qahal, Ekklesia or Synagogue outlawed EXPERIENCES: everyone sat down and shut up and reverently listening to the PREACHING by the READING of the Word. 
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

And, God does not need a little help from his "friends."

1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God,
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

Jesus warned them that if they SPOKE the Word (that one piece pattern) the WORLD would hate and despise them and track them down and murder them.  Paul defined the TRUE TEST of an evangelists who has helpers but NOT LOVELY STAFF to chit chat with.  Paul warned about the parasites wanting to get paid because PAUL'S preaching was not worthy of a wage:
2Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted,
        and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time;
        behold, now is the day of salvation.)
2Corinthians 6:3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
2Corinthians 6:4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God,
        in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
2Corinthians 6:5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
2Corinthians 6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering,
        by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
2Corinthians 6:7 By the WORD of truth, by the power of God,
         by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
2Corinthians 6:8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
2Corinthians 6:9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
2Corinthians 6:10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

For that Paul would accept only the FOOD WHILE he was busy teaching, clothing, housing and a ticket to the next commanded mission point.

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. (Psalm 19:7-11)

That's why the command was NOT to seek your own pleasure or SPEAK YOUR OWN WORDS: to violate that sentiment would have Paul call it corrupting th eowrd or selling learning at retail or prostitution: selling any body part or talent in the name of God even among the Greeks was called prostitution.

Peter left "that which is written" as the only way to mark a fase teacer 2 Peter 1

2Pet. 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
        through the knowledge of God,
        and of Jesus our Lord,
2Pet. 1:3 According as his divine power
        hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, t
        hrough the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pet. 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
        that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
        having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

 NEVER TRUST ANYONE WHO WANTS TO IMPROVE ON JESUS CHRIST WHO DIED TO GET TO SPEAK.

Heb. 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened
        and have tasted of the heavenly gift,
                and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, [word of Christ john 6:63]
        And have tasted the good word of God,
                and the powers of the world to come,
Heb. 6:5

Heb. 6:6 If they shall fall away,
        to renew them again unto repentance;
        seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh,
        and put him to an open shame.

To recrucify the Son means to "stir up the passion and pride" which Jesus outlawed as forms of singing to "create spiritual anxiety through religious ritual."

Heb. 6:7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it,
        and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed,
        receiveth blessing from God:
Heb. 6:8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected,
        and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

Christ has declared you not competent:
Psa. 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned:
        and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Psa. 19:12 Who can understand his errors?
        cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Christ has PreJudged what you do by presuming on the grace and Words of God
Psa. 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins
        let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright,
        and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Christ has PrePared the meaning of SPEAK (external) and MEDITATE (internal).
Psa. 19:14 Let the words of my mouth,
        and the meditation of my heart,
        be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD,
        my strength, and my redeeme
P.S. None of the TRUE Psalms or mizmors available for the non- clergy use instrument

THE LEADERSHIP: Our desire to be a biblical church is so strong that none of us,
        including any elder or preacher, would want to remain in the North Boulevard congregation
        if the North Boulevard church were knowingly and deliberately to abandon its biblical foundations.
        We believe that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking,
        correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

I TOOK DAVID UP ON THAT OFFER AND HE IS SO SILENT: REFUSING TO GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO ANY LOWLY PERSON.


THAT MEANS THAT CHRIST CANNOT USE YOU: HE HAS PAID IT ALL, TAUGHT IT ALL.

It's Biblical and Historical view is established by COMMAND and Precedent: Those who IMPOSE something not REQUIRED and which sows discord is THE meaning of HERESY or SECTARIANISM.

That should settle the "styles" which among the mature is to speak or read: the word SPEAK is clearly defined as the opposite of poetry or music.  So, it would seem that sowing discord must have another motive.


THE CHURCH OF CHRIST ANTITHESIS while the discorders DENY that there are any commands by saying that the Scriptures are NOT adequate to the needs of their sorcery.


2 Tim 3: 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Clanging and Tinkling point to more Bacchus or Dionysus

BOASTERS are:
G5366 philarguros fil-ar'-goo-ros From G5384 and G696 ; fond of silver (money), that is, avaricious:--covetous.

G213 alazōn al-ad-zone' From alē (vagrancy); braggart:--boaster.
G214 alalazō al-al-ad'-zo From alalē (a shout, “halloo”); to vociferate, that is, (by implication) to wail; figuratively to clang:--tinkle, wail.

-Psalmos
A. twitching or twanging with the fingers, (the Bow: making war.
2. the sound of the cithara or harp, Pi.Fr.125, cf. Phryn.Trag.11; “psalmos d' alalazei” “kumbalon alalazon1 Ep.Cor.13.1.

THIS ALALAZEI IS DAVID'S PRAISE SONG MEANING "TO MAKE SELF VILE" TO THREATEN THEN ENEMY WITH SEXUAL VIOLATION.

Aristophanes' Lysistrata

Call upon Bacchus, afire with his Maenades [mad women];
Call upon Zeus in the
lightning arrayed;
Call on his
queen, ever blessed, adorable;
Call on the holy, infallible Witnesses,
Call them to witness the peace and the harmony,
This which divine Aphrodite has made.

Allala! Lalla! Lallala! Lallala!
Whoop for victory, Lallalalae!
Evoi!  Evoi!  Lallala, Lallala!
Evae!  Evae!  Lallalalae.

The word lelein is fundamentally an onomatopoetic one, meaning, as Thayer's Lexicon puts it, to go 'la-la'. The Greeks shouted 'alala' both in worship and in war, and personified Alala as a deity (Pindar, Fr. 208 [78]; Plutarch 2.3496). It was this same repetitive and meaningless syllabification in pagan prayers which Jesus described: 'for they think they shall be heard for their much speaking' (Matthew 6:7)

-T. Maccius Plautus, Miles Gloriosus, or The Braggart Captain Pl. Mil. 2.1
Now I will disclose to you both the subject and the name of the play which we are just now about to act, and for the sake of which you are now seated in this
mirthful place , "Alazon" is the name (86)

This city is Ephesus; then, the Captain, my master, who has gone off hence to the Forum, a bragging, impudent, stinking fellow, brimful of lying and lasciviousness, says that all the women are following him of their own accord. Wherever he goes, he is the laughing.stock of all; and so, the Courtesans here--since they make wry mouths at him, you may see the greater part of them with lips all awry Alazon is the name:
        alazôn
, "the boaster," he says, was the Greek name of the play.
       It is not known who was the Greek author from whom Plautus took this play, which is one of his best.

3  in Greek, of this Comedy; the same we call in Latin. "the Braggart" (Gloriosus).

Iamblichus wrote of Sabazianism which was what God abandoned Israel to because of musical idolatry.

We affirm, accordingly, not only that the shoutings and choric songs are sacred to the gods, each and all of them, as being peculiarly their own, but likewise that there is a kindred relationship between them in their proper order . . . and the peculiar usages of Sabazian worship make ready for the Bacchic enthusiasm, the purifying of souls, and deliverances from old incriminations, their respective inspirations are, accordingly, different in every important particular.

Thou seemest to think that those who are enrapt by the Mother of the gods are males, for thou callest them, accordingly, 'Metrizontes' yet that is not true, for the 'Metrizontesae' are chiefly women (op cit., pp. 121-123

Such women must learn that they were purified not through shouting but through the blood of Christ and through the washing of the water of the Word.

G786 aspondos as'-pon-dos From G1 (as a negative particle) and a derivative of G4689 ; literally without libation (which usually accompanied a treaty), that is, (by implication) truceless:--implacable, truce-breaker.

2 Tim 3: 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

G4273 prodotēs prod-ot'-ace From G4272 (in the sense of giving forward into another’s [the enemy’s] hands); a surrender:--betrayer, traitor.

G5187 tuphoō toof-o'-o From a derivative of G5188 ; to envelop with smoke, that is, (figuratively) to inflate with self conceit:--high-minded, be lifted up with pride, be proud.

2 Tim 3: 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2 Tim 3: 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses,
        so do these also resist the truth:
        men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

You cannot appease the masses of the world: Many are called but FEW are chosen.




2Tim. 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of,
        knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Tim. 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
        which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
        and is profitable
            for doctrine,
            for reproof,
            for correction,
            for instruction in righteousness:
2Tim. 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect,
        throughly furnished unto all good works.
That's the PATTERN from the Wilderness onward and even today in A Church or School of Christ:
1Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach,
        because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
1Timothy 4:11 These things command and teach.
1Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth;
        but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to [Public] reading, to exhortation [comfort], to doctrine.
1Timothy 4:14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee,
        which was given thee by prophecy, [teaching]
        with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
        Paul, an Apostle also said that it was BY the laying on of His hands.
1Timothy 4:15 Meditate upon these things;
        give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
1Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine;
        continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

BUT, by reading further, we discover that an evangelists GOES and suffers reproach and can NEVER be the center of the "worship" assembly.  This is THE PATTERN for a TEACHING ASSEMBLY

When WE approach the message of the Bible, WE want to accept it “not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the WORD of God, which is at work in you who believe” (1 Thess. 2:13).

The WORD of God is the LOGOS or Regulative Principle. If you don't SPEAK that Word there is no light in you. God tolerates no helpers and the WORD is just the opposite of Preaching, poetry, singing, or any kind of metrical performances which "sets the listener on edge waiting for the next change." That is why its PURPOSE DRIVEN PURPOSE is to make the lambs Dumb before the slaughter: the performers are called sorcerers and parasites.

1 Thes 2:5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:

Kolakeia (g2850) kol-ak-i'-ah; from a der. of kolac , (a fawner); flattery: - *flattering

You remember that Jesus "cast out" the musical minstrels "like dung" and consigned the pipers, singers and dancers to the Agora or marketplace.
Chysostom Letter to Theodore After His Fall

Where are they now who used to strut through the market place with much pomp, and a crowd of attendants? who were clothed in silk and redolent with perfumes, and kept a table for their parasites, and were in constant attendance at the theatre?

What has now become of all that parade of theirs? It is all gone;-the costly splendour of their banquets, the throng of musicians, the attentions of flatterers, the loud laughter, the relaxation of spirit, the enervation of mind, the voluptuous, abandoned, extravagant manner of life-it has all come to an end.

Christ has Prempted:
We Acknowledge

David Young A New Beginning: We acknowledge that because of our sinfulness and imperfect human judgment,
         there are areas where we have not fully obeyed Scriptures or have not fully understood their implications.

This will always be the case since we remain weak and our world constantly changes. As James reminds us, “We all stumble in many ways” (James 3:2). To say that we are a New Testament or Bible based church is not to claim perfection. It is to describe our commitment to take the Scriptures seriously and to submit to them as the Word of God as fully as we know how.

JAMES HAD A SOLUTION:

James 3:1 MY brethren, be not many masters,

From the Church of Christ in the Wilderness and still the pattern affirmed by the Apostles:

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time 
        hath in every city them that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Is. 22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; 
        so he shall open, and none shall shut;
        and he shall shut, and none shall open.
Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers!
        for ye have taken away the key of knowledge:
        ye entered not in yourselves,
        and them that were entering in ye hindered.

That's why Christ ordained that you PREACH the Word of Christ as it is written by READING it on the REST day. Even the Lord's Supper is a teaching activity.  That wholly defines THE meaning of ekklesia or synagogue of Christ. Why? Why because "we all stumble" and the imagination of man is only evil continually: no one is called upon to PUMP POWER into the Gospel / Doctrine of Christ.

PAUL AND OTHERS LEFT US A "MEMORY" SO THAT WE COULD MARK THOSE WHO NEED TO CHANGE OR FURTHER EXPOUND.

2 Pet 1:13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

2Pet. 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
        that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
        having escaped the corruption [connects to musical sounds] that is in the world through lust.
2 Pet 1:15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease 
        to have these things alway in remembrance.

2Pet. 1:16  For we have not followed cunningly [sophizo]  devised fables,                   

Fables are myths from MUO [to shut the mouth: music forces the lambs to be silent before the slaughter]
-Muthos   2. fiction (opp. logos, historic truth)
Pind. 0. 1 From there glorious song enfolds the wisdom of poets, so that they loudly sing [10] the son of Cronus, when they arrive at the rich and blessed hearth of Hieron, who wields the scepter of law in Sicily of many flocks, reaping every excellence at its peak, and is glorified [15] by the choicest music, which we men often play around his hospitable table. Come, take the Dorian lyre down from its peg, if the splendor of Pisa and of Pherenicus placed your mind under the influence of sweetest thoughts,

Yes, there are many marvels, and yet I suppose
        the speech of mortals beyond the true account can be deceptive,
        stories adorned with embroidered lies;
        [30] and Grace, who fashions all gentle things for men,
                confers esteem and often
                contrives to make believable the unbelievable.
                But the days to come are the wisest witnesses.

But he takes after his father in scheming for all that is beautiful and good; for he is brave, strenuous and high-strung, a famous hunter, always weaving some stratagem; desirous and competent of wisdom, throughout life ensuing the truth; a master of jugglery, witchcraft

        glory not, and lie not against the truth.
James 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

THIS PAPER PLANS TO SOW DISCORD UNDER THE PLOY OF UNITY

We Commit

David Young A New Beginning: As leaders at North Boulevard, we commit to the ongoing process of studying the Scriptures, seeking to submit to them, and measuring what we do as a congregation by the teachings of the Bible.

We want to be like the people of the ancient city of Berea, who possessed noble character because “they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day” (Acts 17:11).  

Acts 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 

-[1.1.4] The Athenians have also another harbor, at Munychia, with a temple of Artemis of Munychia, and yet another at Phalerum, as I have already stated, and near it is a sanctuary of Demeter. Here there is also a temple of Athena Sciras, and one of Zeus some distance away, and altars of the gods named Unknown

-[1.2.5] One of the porticoes contains shrines of gods, and a gymnasium called that of Hermes.

This fits the Abomination of Desolation which forced moral Jews to flee Jerusalem to be replaced by Kenites or Cainites.

In it is the house of Pulytion, at which it is said that a mystic rite was performed by the most notable Athenians, parodying the Eleusinian mysteries.

But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus (Minstrel), on the same principle as they call Apollo Musegetes (Leader of the Muses).  

Here there are images of Athena Paeonia (Healer), of Zeus, of Mnemosyne (Memory) and of the
Muses, an Apollo, the votive offering and work of Eubulides, and Acratus, a daemon attendant upon Apollo; it is only a face of him worked into the wall.

After the precinct of Apollo is a building that contains earthen ware images, Amphictyon, king of Athens, feasting Dionysus and other gods.

Strabo wrote: 10.3.18] Just as in all other respects the Athenians continue to be hospitable to things foreign,

so also in their worship of the gods;
for they welcomed so many of the foreign rites
that they were ridiculed therefore by comic writers;
and among these were the Thracian and Phrygian rites.

For instance, the Bendideian rites are mentioned by Plato, and the Phrygian by Demosthenes,

  when he casts the reproach upon Aeschines' mother and Aeschines himself
. that he was with her when she conducted initiations,
that he joined her in leading the Dionysiac march,
. and that many a time he cried out "evoe saboe," and "hyes attes, attes hyes";
. for these words are in the ritual of Sabazius and the Mother.

. This is the Sabazianism to which God abandoned Israel at Mount Sinai.

[10.3.15] They invented names appropriate to the flute, and to the noises made by castanets, cymbals, and drums, and to their acclamations and shouts of "ev-ah," and stampings of the feet;1 and they also invented some of the names by which to designate the ministers, choral dancers, and attendants upon the sacred rites, I mean "Cabeiri" and "Corybantes" and "Pans" and "Satyri" and "Tityri," and they called the god "Bacchus," and Rhea [ZOE] "Cybele" or "Cybebe" or "Dindymene" according to the places where she was worshipped. Sabazius also belongs to the Phrygian group and in a way is the child of the Mother, since he too transmitted the rites of Dionysus (This is the ancient Babylonian Triad worship)

Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein,
        seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth,
        dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Acts 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands,
        as though he needed any thing,
        seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
Acts 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men
        for to dwell on all the face of the earth,
        and hath determined the times before appointed,
        and the bounds of their habitation;

Where ever they are on the face of the earth, you don't need someone to lead you into His presence.

Acts 17:27 That they should seek the Lord,
        if haply they might feel after him, and find him,
        though he be not far from every one of us:

Scripture. We also pledge that we will not deliberately lead the church away from the Word of God.

David Young North Boulevard Church of Christ:  We Ask


THE LEADERSHIP:  The New Testament teaches us to test ourselves: “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” (2 Cor. 13:5).

We ask the congregation to make this same commitment to follow the Scriptures in life and in doctrine. We ask the congregation to study the Word of God, to integrate it into your hearts and minds, and to walk daily by its precepts. “Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart” (Psalm 119:2). We also ask the congregation to work lovingly and gently with the leadership as together we continue to seek to become everything the Scriptures teach us to be. We want the entire congregation to practice Paul’s admonition: “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers” (1 Timothy 4:16).

PROPHECY OF THE PRESENT SOWERS OF DISCORD: TEACHING THE DOCTRINES OF DEVIL.

Jesus defined the Scribes and Pharisees and hypocrites by naming false preachers, singers and instrument players. He called them SONS of the Devil because they SPEAK on their own.

Christ has Prempted

        that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
        giving heed to seducing spirits,
        and doctrines of devils;

-Eur. Ba. 298 But this god is a prophet—for Bacchic revelry and madness have in them much prophetic skill.

For terror sometimes flutters an army under arms and in its ranks before it even touches a spear; [305] and this too is a frenzy from Dionysus.

To me the artist's meed, the ivy wreath
Is very heaven: me the sweet cool of woods,
Where Satyrs frolic with the Nymphs, secludes
From rabble rout, so but Euterpe's breath

Fail not the flute, nor Polyhymnia fly
Averse from stringing new the Lesbian lyre.
O, write my name among that minstrel choir,
And my proud head shall strike upon the sky!
-Horace Odes 2.  Venus is Zoe or Lucifer
Ay, Venus smiles; the pure nymphs smile,
And Cupid, tyrant-lord of hearts,
Sharpening on bloody stone the while
Hifiery darts.

New captives fill the nets you weave;
New slaves are bred; and those before,
Though oft they threaten, never leave
Your godless door.

2. We want to extend freedom in matters of opinion.

Christ has Prempted you: any changes will promise liberty but add more burdens (songs)

We Believe

David Young A New Beginning:  North Boulevard has a heritage of granting freedom
        in matters of opinions, styles, and methods.

That's false: the older elders did not grant anyone the freedom to EXPOUND their opinions in the pulpit. They didn't think that teachers of the word would be so enterested in STYLES and METHODS.  Neither David Young or the contacted elders grant anyone even a response.  WE grant freedom to those whose views of music as worship have been perverted by deliberately withholding PREACHING the Word by READING the Word for confort and doctrine.


        We believe that North Boulevard 
        should continue to practice the freedom of Christ
      

where no clear teaching of the New Testament is involved,

        so long as that freedom is guided by appropriate principles of love for others,
        godly wisdom, justice, and mercy.


The Word of God is very vocal from the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden to the Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 17) who uses lusted after FRUITS as  preachers, singers and instrument players.  The Word  of God is flooded with associating musical instruments with Satan as the SOURCE, to people like Jubal who handled instruments "without authority," to warriors threatening the enemy, to sacrificial exorcists (NOT commanded by Christ), to prostitutes and sodomites plaguing all religious institutions.

It is a fact that Christ sends STRONG DELUSIONS so that people corrupting the Word (selling learning at retail)  will believe their own lied and be  damned. The MARK is the introduction of Lying Wonders which would be any of the theatrical or musical spectacles CLAIMING that a spirit told them to do it. That is demonic.

There is no reason that men trained as "doctors of the Law" whom Jesus said "take away the key to knowledge" should know that some things--all forms of music in the school of the Bible--are radically condemned, outlawed and LEFT as a mark of false teachers.


Freedom is a central theme in the New Covenant of Christ:
        “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Cor. 3:17).



The direct command practiced from the wilderness to the time of Christ and endorsed by the Apostles and practiced for centuries was. AGAIN:
Acts 15:21 For Moses 
        of old time hath
        in every city them
        that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Jesus said MY WORDS are SPIRIT and LIFE (John 6:63) because God BREATHED the Word or LOGOS into Him so that He never spoke on His own: what He heard, He spoke, what He taught, He commanded to be taught so that the Spirit is MINISTERED by teaching:

2Cor. 3:1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others,
        epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
2Cor. 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
2Cor. 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be
        the epistle of Christ ministered by us,
        written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God;
         not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
2Cor. 3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
2Cor. 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

The synagogue was ordained by Christ after Israel refused to hear the voice of God and fell into musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. God blinded the Jews and they would not be able to read BLACK text on BROWN paper until they converted to Christ in baptism.

2Cor. 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, 
        that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
        for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away
        in the reading of the old testament;
        which vail is done away in Christ.
So it looks like liberty is liberty to read and discuss the Word of God without a priestly mediator in song or sermon:
2Cor. 3:15 But even unto this day,
        when Moses is read,
        the vail is upon their heart.

2Cor. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
After conversion or baptism we receive A holy spirit so we can read the text without needing to improve on God's Work.  The enabling spirit (our's) is to let us read the Word as it has been taught.

HOW COULD YOU MISS IT? YOU JUST PICK WHAT YOU WANT AND DESPISE THE WORD

The Spirit is the Mind of Christ and is named Jesus Christ the Righteous:
2Cor. 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit:
        and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

-Eleutheria Freedom FROM a thing. Free from the rule of ONE. Freedom from the many.
The clergy's liberty to BIND things on their enablers is the liberty to LEGISLATE: nothing is more legalistic than music always used to force-feed the laws of Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) with the Muses who were dirty adulteresses: John called them SORCERERS.
2Cor. 3:18 But we all,
        with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
        are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
        even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Zechariah 7:11

They made their hearts as hard as flint and would not listen to the law or to the words that
the LORD Almighty had
sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So the LORD Almighty was very angry. Zechariah 7:12

Therefore it is come to pass, that

as he cried, and they would not hear;
so
they cried, and I would not hear,
saith the Lord of hosts: Zechariah 7:13

The prophets with the power of the Spirit or Mind of Christ were ministering the Spirit through the Word. Peter says that they were--

Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Peter 1:11

How shall not the ministration of THE SPIRIT be rather glorious? 2 Cor 3:8

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17

And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Rev 19:10


Peter dared anyone to private interpret or further expound the prophecies by Christ and prophecies made perfect by Jesus Christ.

2Pet. 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard,
        when we were with him in the holy mount.
2Pet. 1:19 WE have also a more sure word of prophecy;
        whereunto YE do well that ye take heed, [the only worship word]
        as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
        until the day dawn,
        and the day star arise in your hearts:


WE have liberty from YOU because Christ gave us the ONLY RESOURCE for the School of the Word.

2Pet. 1:20 Knowing this first,
        that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Pet. 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
        but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

You cannot even "speak your own words" on the REST Day when Jesus Christ comes to be out only teacher when the elders teach that which has been taught. 


We pledge to the church that we will continually test ourselves using the truth of  3  Scripture. We also pledge that we will not deliberately lead the church away from the Word of God.   


2Cor. 13:7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; 
        not that we should appear approved,
        but that ye should do that which is honest,
        though we be as reprobates.
2Cor. 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
2Cor. 13:9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong:
        and this also we wish, even your perfection.
2Cor. 13:10 Therefore I write these things being absent,
        lest being present I should use sharpness,
        according to the power which the Lord hath given me
        to edification, and not to destruction.
-Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1094a [2] (It is true that a certain variety is to be observed among the ends at which the arts and sciences aim:
        in some cases the activity of practising the art is itself the end,
        That's why all of the arts in religion are called hypocrites and parasites.

whereas in others the end is some product over and above the mere exercise of the art; and in the arts whose ends are certain things beside the practice of the arts themselves, these products are essentially superior in value to the activities.)

Note: Aristotle gives flute-playing as an instance of an art the practice of which is an end in itself, in contrast with the art of building, the end of which is the house built Aristot. Gtr. Mor. 1211b 27 ff.

2Cor. 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort,
        be of one mind, live in peace;
        and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Jesus died to cast out the Burden Laders and Laded Burdens which are arousal songs so that the command is to ODE and PSALLO in the Heart (a place) so that learning is possible.

Liberty is liberty FROM the Scribes and Pharisees Jesus called hypocrites and Christ in Ezekiel 33 named preachers, singers and instrument players. That is why they are EXCLUDED for anyone who can read whole thought patterns.

We belive according to David Young:   “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery”  (Gal. 5:1). “

Liberty is liberty FROM the Scribes and Pharisees Jesus called hypocrites and Christ in Ezekiel 33 named preachers, singers and instrument players. That is why they are EXCLUDED for anyone who can read whole thought patterns. Jesus freed ME from any one who does not teach that which is written for our learning.

The primary burden Jesus died to remove is defined as SONGS calculated to create spiritual anxiety to put you under the control of the singer John and everyone called sorcerers.

The burden in Greek includes:

-Epōd-os(epadō) A. singing to or over, using songs or charms to heal wounds, “epōdoi muthoiPl.Lg.903b.

b. Subst., enchanter,e. kai goēsE.Hipp. 1038 (but “goēs e.Ba.234): c. gen., a charm for or against,ethusen hautou paida epōdon Thrēkiōn aēmatōnA.Ag.1418 ; e. tōn toioutōn one to charm away such fears, Pl.Phd.78a.

2. epōdos, ho, verse or passage returning at intervals, in Alcaics and Sapphics, D.H.Comp.19 ; chorus, burden, refrain, Ph. 1.312 : metaph., ho koinos hapasēs adoleskhias e. the 'old story',

Matt. 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now
        the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force

The Greek word in question here is biastai (the plural form of biastes), which a good many versions translate: "violent men." This is the word that appears in Matt. 11:12 -- "violent men take it by force." The verb form of this word, which appears in both Matt. 11:12 and Luke 16:16, is biazo. "The kingdom of heaven suffers violence" [Matt. 11:12]. "Every man entereth violently into it" [Luke 16:16, ASV].
-Rapio To carry off by force; to seize, rob, ravish; to plunder, ravage, lay waste, take by assault, carry by force, Ravish or rape, to live by robbery, 1. To carry along or away with passion, to transport, ravish, captivate; and with a designation of the limit, to carry or hurry away, to attract strongly to any thing (usually in a bad sense): Poet.: “Nasonis carmina rapti,

See Galatians 5 warning about witchcraft and the emasculated priests

Chrysostom's Commentary on Galatians:

http://www.piney.com/John.Chrysostom.Commentary.Galatians.html

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? ... 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.


Fittingly the worship ministers of the Mother Goddess were in fact emasculated because they served as male prostitutes.  That includes SELLING your body talents to lie about God and to God.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,
        and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

David Young: You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love” (Gal. 5:13).  For this reason WE believe that God wants us to extend freedom in areas of opinion and that God is dishonored when we create a legalistic or judgmental environment or an environment dominated by human traditions or frequent controversy.

A Church of Christ is exclusively ONE ANOTHER: it has no role for preaching other than READING the Word for comfort and doctrine

Singing as an ACT was introduced in about 373 when everyone grasped that there was no musical concept from Genesis to revelation and that it intended to replace SPEAKING that which is written for our learning.  This split the east from the western churches.  In the so-called Restoration Movement the only LEGALISTIC act was to impose musical instruments along with the Body Worship being suggested:

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."...
Nothing but the grace of God can bring such a man to repentance.  If taken as he is to the "city of gold," he would surely raise hell in heaven and make all "know and feel what it is to be there."

Churches of Christ have been Bible literate and understood that so-called musical machines were OUTLAWED from the wilderness onward. Anyone who grasps that the Ekklesia-Synagogue was and is A School (only) of the Word (only). It is pretty evil but part of the mantra to say that NOT allowing the invasion of the effeminate performing clergy is LEGALISTIC and Judgmental.

WE in the recently announced Kingdom of Abilene is that WE have the freedom to grant YOU freedom to "go beyond what is written for our learning." YOU are the laity and we must gradually sow discord because if we are clumsy you might jump ship on us and there goes the unlawful Law (legalism) of Laying By in Store so that the destitute might want so that the STAFF riding on the widows and honest workers might be fed.  John Calvin speaking of a Waged Clergy asks: "Why should the plouging oxen starve while the lazy asses be fed."

THE LAW by Paul that if the MANY door-to-door religious hucksters do not follow his example and command do not WORK neither shall they be fed.  The Ekklesia and Synagogue was not a David-like Standing Army when the assembly was DISMISSED.  If you wanted someone to teach you until the next appointed READING session then HE fed the teacher WHILE he was teaching but he did not allow the plowing oxen to set up residence in the farmers house and presume to take care of the Saviour's Bride.

THE LEADERSHIP: “The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
        If you keep on biting and devouring each other,
        watch out or you will be destroyed by each other” (Gal. 5:14-15). “

We don't live under the Law of Moses but the law of Christ: Jesus also FREED everyone from the Civil-Military-Clergy complex with a STAFF which God warned would take their tithes and even their farms.  A Disciple of Christ has only the Man Jesus Christ as the mediator in ANY thing related to A Church of Christ: No, it is blaspmeny to claim that a musical worship team can lead you into the presence of God. The elders PREACH the Word (only) by READING the Word for Comfort and Doctrine. We assemble as A School of Christ and HE does not have a STAFF to suck up all of the unauthorized Law of Giving.

That's True: The Law of Moses was added BECAUSE of musical idolatry: God was thoughtful enough to let Christ the ROCK establish the Qahal, synagogue, ekklesian or Church of Christ  to REST, Read and rehease the Word. Contrary to the judgmental Jews, Paul told them their were not predestinated (Romans 9) because the fell into instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai (1 Corinthians 10).  The LAW was given because of this instrumental idolatry of the Egyptian trinity and had no saving effect. The godly people attended SHOOL OF THE WORD (only) and gentiles attended synagogue rather than the pagan musical madness fleecing the lambs and so were "wise unto salvation."

Acts 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

So, why would a church use their human IMAGINATION to impose the instrumental idolatry which was a sin without redemption. The Real Galatians defines why both MALE AND FEMALE should be silent so that "we might all be saved and come to a knowledge of the TRUTH--Thy WORD is truth and there is no other which humans can PROVIDE as liberty:

The Mad Women of Corinth are well documented.

MAD in Paul's terms.  Christ in 1 Peter 2 OUTLAWS private interpretation which means "further expounding." 

The Israelites fell into musical idolatry at Mount Sinai AFTER they refused to listen to The Book of The Covenant of grace. God turned them over to worship starry host and sentenced them to "beyond Babylon."  The godly people attended ekklesia or Church to Rest, Read and Rehearse the Word of God (only).  The law regulated the Civil-military-clergy complex and had nothing to do with the Godly people under the Covenant of Grace.

The direct commands of Jesus Christ are not laws and for readers He repudiated the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites: in the Ezekiel 33 version were speakers, singers and instrument players: this was the MARK that they would not listen to the Word of God.

The Law of Moses was imposed because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. Christ ordained the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the wilderness. This quarantine the godly people from the sacrificial system which used instruments as part of the worship of the starry hosts. The Synagogue or church continued to EXCLUDED both preaching and music because it was a SCHOOL OF THE WORD.

THE ONLY USE OF "LEGALISTS" SPEAKS OF SINGING THE LAWS OF APOLLYON

A musical instrument is "a machine for doing hard work, mostly in making war or creating the shock and awe of religious ceremonialism.  Jesus FIRED them.  No one was ever so dumb that they did not know that music appealed as Albert Barnes said to the LUST OF EAR and the LUST of the Eye.  Music has no abiding value and prostitutes itself to stroking all of the pleasure center nerve endings.

Gal. 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit,
        and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Gal. 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit,
        and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other:
        so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 

The woman at the well understood Jesus to say that we worship in the PLACE of the human spirit devoted to THE TRUTH. This was opposite to the places of temples.

Paul commanded us to worship IN THE SPIRIT because the DOGS or catamite praise singerr were howling to get inside to the lambs


Gal. 5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded:
        but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
Gal. 5:11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision,
        why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
Gal. 5:12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.

Gal 5:12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!
Gregory Nazianzen

Nor are we concerned with Phrygian mutilations and flutes and Corybantes, and all the ravings of men concerning Rhea, consecrating people to the mother of the gods, and being initiated into such ceremonies as befit the mother of such gods as these. Nor have we any carrying away of the Maiden, nor wandering of Demeter, nor her intimacy with Celei and Triptolemi and Dragons; nor her doings and sufferings ... for I am ashamed to bring into daylight that ceremony of the night, and to make a sacred mystery of obscenity. Eleusis knows these things, and so do those who are eyewitnesses of what is there guarded by silence, and well worthy of it. Nor is our commemoration one of Dionysus, and the thigh that travailed with an incomplete birth, as before a head had travailed with another; nor of the hermaphrodite god, nor a chorus of the drunken and enervated host; nor of the folly of the Thebans which honours him; nor the thunderbolt of Semele which they adore. Nor is it the harlot mysteries of Aphrodite, who, as they themselves admit, was basely born and basely honoured; nor have we here Phalli and Ithyphalli, shameful both in form and action; nor Taurian massacres of strangers; nor blood of Laconian youths shed upon the altars, as they scourged themselves with the whips; and in this case alone use their courage badly, who honour a goddess, and her a virgin. For these same people both honour effeminacy, and worship boldness.
11 There was a temple of Rhea [ZOE] in Phrygia, in which at her festivals people mutilated flutes alluded to served to turn the thoughts of the sufferes from the pain of the operation.

The Corybantes were the ministers of the goddess, who led the wild orgies of her worship. It is believed that there is an allusion to this practice of self-mutilation in Galat. v. 12. So at least S. Jerome, S. Ambrose, and all the Greek Fathers take the passage. S. Thomas Aquinas, understanding the word in the same sense, applies it mystically.

Here is what an agitator does to RECRUCIFY Christ who SILENCED the passion and pride:

        but also to brandish daggers and to administer poisons;
and unless they are driven out, unless they die, even should Catiline die, I warn you that the school of Catiline would exist in the republic.

"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? ... 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 pleasure.

Gal 5:18 But if ye be led OF the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

Gal. 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;

Gal. 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before,

Spirit, Gospel, Word for the mind or spirit is CONTRASTED to THE law of moses, to FLESH and to LETTER.

SPIRIT never speaks of A being, human or Divine.  God is Holy or WHOLLY SPIRIT which defines the "substratum" upon which God rests or lives, AS we exist on a substratum of FLESH.  Paul equated The Holy Spirit of God to The Mind of Christ (1 Cor 2). Spirit and Mind and Heart are used interchangeably.  Peter, Walter Scott and Alexander Campbell said that A holy spirit is the person's own spiri after the person had been baptized.

Many of the diverse members reject the idea of Baptism SO we have to quit preaching the Best news or WILL will create DISunity.  SPIRIT

            that they make their laws and distribute their praises and censures

-[483c] and to terrorize the stronger sort of folk who are able to get an advantage, and to prevent them from getting one over them, 
           they tell them, that such aggrandizement is foul and unjust,
           and that wrongdoing is just this endeavor to get the advantage of one's neighbors:

           for I expect they are well content to see themselves on an equality,
                  when they are so inferior.
          So this is why by convention it is termed unjust and foul to aim at an advantage over the majority,

-[483d] and why they call it wrongdoing: but nature, in my opinion,
           herself proclaims the fact that it is right for the better to have advantage of the worse, and the abler of the feebler.
           It is obvious in many cases that this is so, not only in the animal world, but in the states and races, collectively, of men-
           -that right has been decided to consist in the sway and advantage of the stronger over the weaker.

          we mold the best and strongest amongst us,
          taking them from their infancy like young lions,
          and utterly enthral them by our spells

Callicles boldly applies the word nomos, which so far has been used in the sense of man-made law or convention, in its widest sense of “general rule” or “principle.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GALATIANS 5 AND THE MASSIVE SOWERS OF DISCORD

There is no Bible or recorded history which does not connect musical "worship" to a giant outburst of effeminate or perverted worship. All pagan religious singers and musicians were castrated (ACappella) ministers of Cybele or other Babylon Mother of Harlots.  In Revelation 18 John calls them "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos) and they performed as preachers, singers in instrument players. John called them SORCERERS who had deceived the whole world.

SOME TRUTH TO MARK VAIN SPEAKERS USING VAIN PHILOSOPHY AND HUMAN TRADITIONS.

Those needing to UPSET COMFORT ZONES intend to SOW MASSIVE DISCORD: that's their job.


Col. 2:1 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea,
        and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
Col. 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love,
        and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding,
        to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God,
        and of the Father, and of Christ;

Col. 2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in THE FAITH
          as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil [lie] you through philosophy and vain deceit,
          after the tradition of men,
          after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 

G5385 philosophia fil-os-of-ee'-ah From G5386 ; “philosophy”, that is, (specifically) Jewish sophistry:—philosophy.

G5386 philosophos fil-os'-of-os From G5384 and G4680 ; fond of wise things, that is, a “philosopher”:—philosopher.

The leaders in Ephesians 4 (no preachers named) are specificially to PUT OUT those tricksters using sophistry:

THE WORLD POINTS TO THE MUSICAL WORSHIP OF ALL PAGANS.

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

John 17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee.
.......... Holy Father, keep through thine OWN NAME
.......... those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

John 17:12 While I was with them in the world,
.......... I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept,
.......... and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition;
.......... that the scripture might be fulfilled.

John 17:13 And now COME I TO THEE;
.......... and these things I SPEAK in the world,
.......... that they might have my joy FULFILLED in themselves.

John 17:14 I have given them
.......... THY WORD; and
.......... the world hath HATETH them,
.......... because they are not of the world,
.......... even as I am not of the world.

John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest
.......... take them out of the world,
.......... but that thou shouldest KEEP them from the EVIL.

John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

John 17:17 SANCTIFY them
.......... through THY TRUTH:
.......... thy WORD is TRUTH.

1Cor. 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you
        seemeth to be wise in this world,
        let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1Cor. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
        For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

       [475] but since, as it seems, your heart is so strongly set on playing the lyre,
       chant, and play upon it, and give yourself to merriment, taking this as a gift from me,

Whoso with wit and wisdom enquires of it cunningly, him it teaches [485] through its sound all manner of things that delight the mind, being easily played with gentle familiarities,
        for it abhors toilsome drudgery; but whoso in ignorance enquires of it violently,
        to him it chatters mere vanity and foolishness.

Afterwards they two, the all-glorious sons of Zeus turned the cows back towards the sacred meadow, [505] but themselves hastened back to snowy Olympus, delighting in the lyre. Then wisegiven the lyre as token to the Far-shooter, [510] who played it skilfully, holding it upon his arm. But for himself Hermes found out another cunning art and made himself the pipes whose sound is heard afar.

Far Shooter is Apollo (Abaddon or Apollyon) who used the muses as adulterous musical worship team.  He is the "father" of musical worship and homosexual worship.

Zeus was glad and made them both friends. And Hermes loved the son of Leto continually, even as he does now, when he had

2Cor. 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

THE LEADERSHIP THREAT: “But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him” (Titus 3:8-10).

Judas Bag
Kosmokrator

THE DIVISVE PERSON IS:

To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. Titus 3:2

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers LUSTSand PLEASURES living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. Titus 3:3

The Judas Bag was for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments. Jesus flashed SOP or PSALLO and Satan came INTO Judas and he DID HIMSELF IN. 

Herodotus 1:24. [4] Abandoned to this extremity, Arion asked that, since they had made up their minds, they would let him stand on the half-deck in all his regalia and sing; and he promised that after he had sung he would do himself in. [5] The men, pleased at the thought of hearing the best singer in the world, drew away toward the waist of the vessel from the stern. Arion, putting on all his regalia and taking his lyre, stood up on the half-deck and sang the "Stirring Song," and when the song was finished he threw himself into the sea, as he was with all his regalia. [6] So the crew sailed away to Corinth; but a dolphin (so the story goes) took Arion on his back and bore him to Taenarus. Landing there, he went to Corinth in his regalia, and when he arrived, he related all that had happened.

[5] "Well," said they, "he won't go so far, will he, as to oppose us in the matter of taking away the army?" "Why," said Heracleides, "if you gather the men together and promise them their pay, they will hurry after you, paying scant heed to him."

[4] There were likewise matches set of bodily exercise and of music; and the cities did severally set forth dances. Which things to have been so, is principally declared by Homer in these verses of his hymn to Apollo:

But thou, Apollo, takest most delight
In Delos. There assemble in thy sight
The long-coat Ions, with their children dear
And venerable bedfellows; and there
In matches set of buffets, song, and dance,
Both show thee pastime and thy name advance.
[5] That there were also matches of music and that men resorted thither to contend therein he again maketh manifest in these verses of the same hymn. For after he hath spoken of the Delian dance of the women, he endeth their praise with these verses, wherein also he maketh mention of himself:
But well: let Phoebus and Diana be
Propitious; and farewell you, each one.
But yet remember me when I am gone:
And if of earthly men you chance to see
Any toil'd pilgrim, that shall ask you, Who,
O damsels, is the man that living here
Was sweet'st in song, and that most had your ear?

Make answer thus: [6] A man deprived of seeing;

-8.91 Thus sang the bard, but Odysseus drew his purple mantle over his head and covered his face, for he was ashamed to let the Phaeacians see that he was weeping. When the bard left off singing he wiped the tears from his eyes, uncovered his face, and, taking his cup, made a drink-offering to the gods; but when the Phaeacians pressed Demodokos to sing further, for they delighted in his lays, then Odysseus again drew his mantle over his head and wept bitterly. No one noticed his distress except Alkinoos, who was sitting near him, and heard the heavy sighs that he was heaving.
So he at once said, "Aldermen and town councilors of the Phaeacians, we have had enough now, both of the feast, and of the minstrelsy that is its due accompaniment; let us proceed therefore to the athletic sports [athlos], so that our guest on his return home may be able to tell his friends how much we surpass all other nations as boxers, wrestlers, jumpers, and runners."

But I trust that the fire-bearing thunderbolt will justly come to him, [445] and when it comes it will not be anything like the sun's mid-day heat. And against him, even though he is a big talker, a man of fiery spirit, mighty Polyphontes, is stationed, a dependable sentinel [450] with the good will of guardian Artemis and the other gods. Now tell me about another one allotted to other gates!Exit Polyphontes.

And he sang how the sons of the Achaeans [515] poured forth from the horse and, leaving their hollow ambush, sacked the city. Of the others he sang how in divers ways they wasted the lofty city, but of Odysseus, how he went like Ares to the house of Deiphobus together with godlike Menelaus.

REMOVE HIM FROM THE CHURCH OF CHRIST

Titus 3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions,
        and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

Thuc. 3.104  For they then came to see the games, with their wives and children, as the Ionians do now the games at Ephesus. [4] There were likewise matches set of bodily exercise and of music; and the cities did severally set forth dances. Which things to have been so, is principally declared by Homer in these verses of his hymn to Apollo:

But thou, Apollo, takest most delight
In Delos. There assemble in thy sight
The long-coat Ions, with their children dear
And venerable bedfellows; and there
In matches set of buffets, song, and dance,
Both show thee pastime and thy name advance.
[5] That there were also matches of music and that men resorted thither to contend therein he again maketh manifest in these verses of the same hymn. For after he hath spoken of the Delian dance of the women, he endeth their praise with these verses, wherein also he maketh mention of himself:
But well: let Phoebus and Diana be
Propitious; and farewell you, each one.
But yet remember me when I am gone:
And if of earthly men you chance to see
Any toil'd pilgrim, that shall ask you, Who,
O damsels, is the man that living here
Was sweet'st in song, and that most had your ear?
Then all, with a joint murmur, thereunto
Make answer thus: [6] A man deprived of seeing;
In the isle of sandy Chios is his being.

David Young; WE believe in practicing liberty in matters of opinion,
        and
we seek to speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where it is silent.
        We will try to honor the ancient maxim: “In matters of faith, unity; in matters of opinion, liberty; in all matters, love.”

We are told how to do that: Romans 15 Speak, Eph 5

WE do not have the right to impose one's OWN opinion over the heads of others.

After silencing the music / diet sects in Romans 14 Paul defined "synagogue" which never changed:

Rom. 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, 
        and not to please ourselves.  
        (this outlaws all of the hypocritic arts: rhetoric, singing with instruments)

Rom. 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
Rom. 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written,
        The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Christ has Prempted you: If He has not written through the prophets and apostles, WE do not speak.
Rom. 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime
        were written for our learning,
        that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Rom. 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded
        one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Rom. 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God,
        even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rom. 15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.

THAT'S IT: FIRST EXCLUSIVE AND THEN INCLUSIVE.

With all unauthorized and all unfunded operatives of religion, it is not required to have read much of the Bible. Otherwise, they would grasp that from Genesis to Revelation and most recordedd history musical instruments are SOURCED from Satan to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" and to PREVENT the Word of God from being taught.  Not using "machines for doing hard work mostly in making war and in creating the shock and awe of religious rituals" which in the Bible and the ancient languages MARKS witchcraft or sorcery.

Calling NOT using instruments traditionalism or "preferences" is truly an underhanded form of psychological violence. Even when none of the groups which flowed into the Church of Christ had EVER used instruments, they--not being able to blush--they claim that the Church of Christ INVENTED not using machines.

THE URGE FOR STYLES IS DEFINED ABOVE OF THE CROOKED RACE.

We Acknowledge

THE LEADERSHIP We acknowledge that this is not an easy commitment to keep.

        As humans, each of us has strong feelings for particular styles and traditions
        that we, for various reasons, don’t want to give up.

 As humans, we acknowledge that some of us simply do not like change but instead value stability.
        And as humans we confess our tendency to want to have things our own way, even in church.

Just as the early church faced tensions over various cultural and traditional issues, we know that we will face the same.

We also acknowledge that it is not always easy to determine whether a particular issue is a clear biblical teaching or a mere private interpretation or stylistic preference.


In Romans 14 Paul outlawed doubtful disputations which were the private opinions of the sects marked  by diet but ALL highly addicted to music: that is why Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and instrument players to the marketplace with all of the other pollutants and commerce.

That would make the assembly possible dedicated SOLELY to speaking that which is written one to another.

The command was to leave  CULTURE outside of the assembly which can never conform to culture.

BUT, AS USUAL WHEN THE STRUCTURE IS FINANCED THE INVADERS HAVE THEIR WAY AND CHASE OUT THE FOUNDERS.

THE LEADERSHIP Knowing what is a matter of faith and what is a matter of opinion is difficult in some cases and may often require long periods of prayer, study, and conversation, but the result is worth the effort.

Faith or Pistis means to COMPLY: Faith comes ONLY by hearing the Word of God: everything else is human opinion

No, prayer will not let you get a secret  message: if it has been taught then it is FAITH.  If it has not been taught then it is opinion.  We know that the command is to teach THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN with one mind and one mouth. We who are disciple know that always excludes all of the hypocritic arts and crafts which stirs up the flesh and makes education (only) impossible.

If God has not radically condemned  instruments and associated them with people dedicated  to making the lambs dumb before the slaughterr then ALL OF CHURCH SCHOLARSHIP is just flat wrong and David is right.

We also acknowledge that, though many things may be permissible, not all things are helpful (1 Cor. 6:12). There are things that the Scriptures allow Christians to do in theory that may be harmful or even wrong in our particular context.

David Young usurping authority: 2 For this reason,

WE acknowledge the need to balance Christian freedom with Christian responsibility,
exercising our freedom in love (1 Cor. 16:14),


No, the universal Biblical and  scholarly meaning of CENI is that if God has not commanded or approved  of some practice then it is NOT required to conduct School (only) of the Bible  (only).  Therefore, it cannot AID God and will always deliberately sow discord.


HOW TO FALL FROM GRACE  WITHOUT REDEMPTION

1Cor. 10:6 Now these things were our examples, [PATTERNS}
        to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Cor. 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written,
        The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.  

Christ has given us rest as PAUO which has the same meaning as SABBATH.  The word  REST specificially outlaws rising up to play meaning  musically which always induces sexually.

Of The Golden Calf "From time immorial music had been especially valued in the service of prophecy. Pliny the Elder gives us a report of the cult of Apis:

"In Egypt an ox is honored in place of the god. He is called Apis and he lives in isolation. If he ever goes among the people he stalks along while the lictors make way for him and throngs of boys accompany him, singing songs in his honor. He appears to understand what is happening and seems to wish to be adored. The throngs [of boys] sudddenly become inspired and prophesy the future. (Pliny, Natural History)

Consequently Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) was god of prophets and musicians and Pan was god of medicine, music and divination.

Exod 31:14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you:
        every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death:
        for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

FALSE PREACHERS USE THE BURNT OFFERING AS AUTHORITY: GOD HAD NOT COMMANDED ANY SACRIFCES.

The instruments of the King and Commanders of the army made a great noise during the burning of the goats for Israel lost beyond redemption. The offering of the goat began to appease Satan.

-Verg. G. 2.386
For no offence but this to Bacchus bleeds
The goat at every altar, and old plays
Upon the stage find entrance; therefore too
The sons of Theseus through the country-side—
Hamlet and crossway—set the prize of wit,
And on the smooth sward over oiled skins
Dance in their tipsy frolic. Furthermore
The Ausonian swains, a race from Troy derived,
Make merry with rough rhymes and boisterous mirth,
Grim masks of hollowed bark assume, invoke
Thee with glad hymns, O Bacchus, and to thee
Hang puppet-faces on tall pines to swing.
Hence every vineyard teems with mellowing fruit,
Till hollow vale o'erflows, and gorge profound,
Where'er the god hath turned his comely head.
Therefore to Bacchus duly will we sing
Meet honour with ancestral hymns, and cates
And dishes bear him; and the doomed goat
Led by the horn shall at the altar stand,
Whose entrails rich on hazel-spits we'll roast.
The Egyptian Opis (Apis) and others which Israel worshipped at Mount Sinal were worshipped throughout the area. "In preference to all other hymns these choirs generally sang the so-called epiphany hymns,which were intended to invite the gods to appear. Plutarch wrote:
Why do the women of Elis call upon God in song to approach them with the bull's foot? Their song is the following:
Come, Dionysus, Hero,
into the holy temple of Elis,
together with the Graces
come violently into the temple with the bull's foot!
Then they sang twice at the end: "Sacred Bull!" (Johannes Quasten, Music & Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, p. 76)
"For nonliterate peoples, music often serves purposes other than entertainment or aesthetic enjoyment. Certain wind instrumentare closely associated with the supernatural, and their sounds connote powerful magic. Australian Aborigines, for instance, identify the sound of a bull-roarer with thevoices of supernatural beings; for the Plains Indians, the same sound signifies an awesome natural phenomenon, such as thunder. Wind instruments are often among a group's most important ritual objects, and in some cultures they are specially venerated. The Kamairua Indians of the Amazon rain forest keep their giant flutes (three to four feet long), wherein spirits are believed to dwell, in a special shrine where they are worshiped. The flutes and drums of New Guinea are similarly housed and worshiped.

"Wind instruments in primitive cultures also serve nonreligious functions. In New Guinea, bamboo trumpets were once played
to frighten an enemyduring battle and
to
alert a village that the victorious warriors were coming home with the corpses of the foes.
"Conch-shell trumpets are used for signaling in the Pacific coastal regions of Columbia and in the Ecuadoran highlands. Trumpets also may be associated with the office of king or chief, as in West Africa, where their use is strictly controlled by tribal law. "wind instrument" Encyclopædia Britannica Online.

"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).

"In the New Testament there is nowhere any emphasis laid on the musical form of the hymns; and in particular none on instrumental accompaniment whereas this is significantly paganism." (Delling, Gerhard, Worship in the New Testament, trans. Percy Scott Phil. Westminster press, 1962, p. 86).

1Cor. 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.


WELL, NOT ALL THINGS!

for edifying others (1 Cor. 14:26),
and for the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31).

A Church of Christ is built upon (Educated) ONLY by the Prophets and Apostles: there is nothing anyone can add to that which does not despise or blaspheme the Word of Christ

Edifying is educating: Paul outlawed all of the arousal arts and artists and commanded that we use one
