John Mark Hicks Patterns Legalism and Grace Alexander Campbell.
John Mark Hicks twists Alexander Campbell's A Restoration of the Ancient Order of things.
The legalistic ploy is to try to convince everyone that Alexander Campbell and Churches of Christ JOINED with the Disciples-Christian Churches. This is utterly false.

A World History of the Stone-Campbell Movement.  The Disciples of Christ with Church of Christ "scholars" on the payroll
are attempting to bond Churches of Christ to the Disciples of Christ Which Christian Churches repudiated beginning in 1927 and finalized in 1971. It is too easy to lift short blurbs from say A Restoration of the Ancient Order of Things and force Alexander Campbell to lie.

The American Restoration Movement New comments

World History of the Stone, Campbell Movement  Men funded by the Disciples of Christ attempt to define the Restoration Concept to the 19th Century and is HISTORY-LESS in support of the Disciples.

Logos versus Mythos: Word versus Music Logos (modern) is rational of the word and STRAIGHT: Mythos and Sophia (postmodern) are irrational and Gender-Confused. Mythos Nomoi (traditional law)
(a) Eros is approved, and its excesses condoned, when directed towards superior youths approaching manhood.
(b) It appears to be condemned, in so far as parents forbid their boys to hold converse with “erastae.” The explanation of this ambiguous attitude must be sought in the principle laid down above, that the moral quality of an act depends upon the conditions of its performance.
GRACE is Kharizo 2. gratify or indulge a humour or passion, 3. in erotic sense, grant favours to a man,
give up as a favour by dropping a law aimed at him,
Those who willingly infiltrate and impose musical instruments into a peaceable church justify the deliberate sowing of discord based on false teachings of all of the "instrument" passages also preach that GRACE will cover them.

Grace Centered Magazine:  3.06.11. This forum has a Church of Christ thread dedicated to abusing those who do not deliberately reject the clear teaching of the Word and recorded history. A common lie is that the Church Fathers had nothing bad to say about the use of instruments based on Scripture. We have refuted that to prove that NO ONE used instruments in the churches but refute the Jews who did because they had been abandoned to Canaanite Baalism or the worship of the starry host.

  The American Restoration Movement Texts and Photos

Kennenth Sublett,, Hohenwald, Tennessee
The American Restoration Movement Texts and Photos believes "In essentials, unity, in doubtful matters, liberty; in all things charity." Attributed to Augustine.

John Calvin called the Reformation a Restoration Movement. The purpose was to use only Scripture for faith and practice. That meant removing all of the superstitious rituals such as music which had been added from paganism. While the Catholic church had never used the organ to accompany congregational singing as an "act," Calvin's Restoration Movement saw the evil influences of the organ used for secular musical performances. He repudiated a hired clergy and taught many things which were well in place before the Campbells. Calvin restored the DIRECT COMMANDED singing of the Psalms which Paul called "that which is written" and then called "Scripture." That would allow wildly diverse Dionysiacs and Orphics to meet for "Bible class."

Both groups were highly addicted to musical performance and the induced pagan practices. Paul did not approve either group but declared that their private practices were OUTSIDE of the realm of Bible Class and time and teaching would filter out into private lives.

By repudiating both PLEASURING and the REPROACHES which Jesus suffered Paul pointed to the "bull's eye thing" of the lifting up of spiritual anxiety, singing as the "tool" of arousal and heresy which meant that a demagogue was LIFTING YOU UP to carry you away for his own uses. The word KLEPTOMA is intimately connected by definition and Greek Literature with this PATTERNISM of "acts of false worship" which point directly to the pagan rituals where music and sexual arousal were cause and desired effects.

All of the PLUCKING proof texts come directly from the practice of men plucking the harp in order to groom a young boy as the "ministers of the gods" for pederasty.

We have posted the nature of the KINGDOM from Romans 14-15. Romans 14 and many other passages show that most personal lives are NOT subjects for any kind of disputation. That is because the church is the SCHOOL OF THE BIBLE in Romans 15. You simply have no "job description" for any kind of clergy when the members are abe to "teach one another" by speaking with ONE MIND and ONE MOUTH and using "that which is written." That is the ONLY way to glorify God and not deliberately sow discord. This was exactly what Martin Luther defined from Romans 15.

The American Restoration Movement saw the church as established by Jesus Christ. That was as a SCHOOL OF CHRIST as indeed the ekklesia is ONLY a school of the Bible. Everything which has been added to the ideal of the Declaration and Address which defined community learning centers has sowed discord.

Geni, Adepts, Demons Rubel shelly will be teaching The Shaping of Things to Come to train new ministers at Rochester College. The book seems more occult than Christian.

Review of Max Lucado's Creed on baptism:

Part One: The Thief on the Cross Saved without Baptism! No: Christ had not yet preached to the pre- Cross faithful nor ascended into heaven.

Part Two: Baptism is just a pledge that you have been saved? No: Baptism is our REQUEST TO God; not OUR guaranteeing OUR faith!

Part Three: Salvation by Trust Only or Prayer Only? 12/5/02 See how the GA, Shelly, Lucado Trithism as A Family of Gods leads naturally to despising the counsel of the human Jesus and how Baptists Baptism denies that Christ came FULLY in the flesh.

Part Four: Romans 6: Baptism DOES NOT save?

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.

No one can doubt that Paul put the singing AND melody in the HEART and not upon a harp! If it breaks toward the MUSICAL side someone is trying to deceive someone as the "serpent" musically enchanted Eve while Adam went willingly.

Many who believe that the Bible defines the Mind or Spirit of Christ have always sought to "do church" consistent with the Bible. The problems have usually flowed from seeing "church" as a Christian Temple where worship rituals are performed.

This allows great latitude for debate over the form of the organized institution.

However, the Bible defines those who gathered for a common purpose with a word related to the "synagogue" which was school of the Bible while the Greek Ekklesia was more like a county court.

The CORE of the wish for restoration with Thomas and Alexander Campbell was to leave all specifics about "worship" to the individual, but to meet as a community to worship in the Biblical sense of "reading and meditating on the Word." This is exactly the pattern Paul defined in Romans 15 to allow people tainted with Dionysic or Orphic thought which was musical worship to the extreme.

The Name of the Body of Christ

Lots of fussy people make too much of the notion that the church does not have a name and that is true: to say "church of Christ" means an assembly devoted to Christ and the Christian documents as opposed to the "church of Plato" devoted to the study and contemplation of Plato.

What Has Been The Historical Name of The Church of Christ? This article has taken the liberty of adding research by Clifton Yeager, Huber Heights, Ohio taken from the Christian Chronicle.

Instrumental Music Innovation

At least four times in the Old Testament, instrumental music is connected to the clear statement: "Depart from us we do not want to hear any more from God." These are Job 21:7-14; Isa 5:11-13; Amos 5:21-24; 6:1-7; 8:10-13; Ezekiel 33:30-32.

Instrumental Music in the Era of the Beginning of the American Restoration Movement

Contemporary Attack Upon Non-Musical Churches

While Stone-Campbell churches come out of the same era as churches of Christ there is a difference primarily with how the different groups understand Scripture. DeGroot defines the Disciples as a church because it is, like Catholicism, a "living church" with the interpretation of the Bible based on the needs of the culture. There is no urge to listen to Paul because Paul is perceived as having a "faulty theology." This is why Paul can be ignored about women in ministry and the mode of singing the Biblical text.

Because the authority and history is "living," being faithful to biblical or historical facts are superseded by the needs of the time or argument.

Is Rejecting Instruments Racism?
Musical "churches" and Non-Musical "sects." Alfred T. DeGroot:

The following articles are a review of The Restoration Principle by Alfred T. DeGroot which uses the church "Fathers" to reject the Restoration Movement Principle and the authority of the letters of the Apostles. All defend the authority of Scripture as delivered and denounce instrumental music or any theatrical performance as idolatry and totally inconsistent with a spiritual worship.
