Rick Atchley-Chris Seidman Instrumental Music Delusion

Rick Atchley Defends Instrumental Praise Based on the Jacob-cursed and God-Abandoned infant burning Levites.

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

God saw this Musical Worship Team and abandoned them to Babylonianism at the temple God did not command

Below: God say this just BEFORE and just AFTER Hezekiah's Plague Stopping Exorcism. This is recorded in 2 Chronicles 29: it is the PATTERN a "spirit" commanded Rick Atchley etal to impose "instrumental praise".  Spiritus in Latin defines the personified spirit as that of Apollon or Abbadon. He is the ruler of the locusts to readers is defined as the leader of the Muses or the adulterous musicians. In Revelation 18 they are defined as sorcerers who HAD deceived the wholeworld.

Judas  was a thief: his bag or box was
always attached to the spotted flute case.

                 He is defined as the familiar friend of Jesus in Psalm 41. He would try to ALARM or TRIUMPH over Jesus: this is a MARK. It was outlawed in the Church of Christ in the Wilderness as vocal or instrumental rejoicing or any speaking beyond the Word

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

Jay Guin Ephesians 5:19 and Psalms
When people lie TO God and ABOUT God He sends strong delusions that you believe your own lies. Lying wonders are religious observations (to which the Kingdom does not come). None of the Purpose Driven to Discord can grasp that God turned the Jews over to worship the starry hosts and they had "a covenant with death and hell".  Jesus died to give us rest FROM the laded burdens and the BURDEN LADERS.  For instance PARASITE speaks of religious craftsmen who claim some special skill (Scribes and Pharisees): especially the Jacob-Cursed and God-Abandoned Levites as an old Egyptian Infant-burning sect.

Paul and the rest of the New Testament is ANTITHETICAL to the Jews and modern sowers of discord "Covenant with Death and with Hell."

The Spirit OF Christ warned about the Lying Pen of the Scribes and Jesus called the Scribes and Pharasees, hypocrites: in Ezekiel 33 version He named speakers for hire (HIRELINGS), singers and instrument players.  The MARK was of neither preacher nor fleeced audience had any intention of obeying the Word of God. Word or Logos is God's REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE about which all of the Scribes and Pharisees or "doctors of the law lie" because Paul in Ephesians 4 says that the cunning craftsmen or SOPHISTS (speakers, singers, instrument players) were LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.  They are predestinated because they are OF the World for which Jesus doesn't pray. In Revelation 18 as "lusted after fruits" they are called sorcerers who HAD DECEIVED THE WHOLE WORLD.

Exodus 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: 
Exodus 13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.
The Ghebers of Hebron The Jews blew the trumpet on the newmoon, poured out libations and offered burnt sacrifices. And for this duty the Lobii, Luim  or Levites were assigned to do just what the Brahmans did in India. They ministered to la'hoh, Lord of Life, according to Exodus, iii. 14 ; xxxviii. 21; xl. 15; Jeremiah, xxxiii. 18. Hence the Jews were the Brahmaus of Palestine, as Josephus said, worshipping Brahma, whom, for their own political purposes, they chose to regard as Ab (Father) Ram (Most High) which title is not unsuitable to the Most High of the Hindu Gods. King states that the words brahrna and abrahm have the same numerical value.

The Spirit OF Christ in Isaiah 30 defined the Jews going in musical processions to Jerusalem to engage in the Assyrian form of infant slaughter.

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

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

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

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

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


Paul CORRECTED the Jewish and Abilene Kingdom folly by proving that the ONLY Spiritual Covenant made by God in Christ was made to ABRAHAM

2 Maccabees 1

1 - The Jewish brethren in Jerusalem and those in the land of Judea, To their Jewish brethren in Egypt, Greeting, and good peace.
2
- May God do good to you, and may he remember his covenant with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, his faithful servants.
3
- May he give you all a heart to worship him and to do his will with a strong heart and a willing spirit

Psalms 105:9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
Acts 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets,
        and of the covenant which God made with our fathers,
        saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

Acts 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets,
        and of the covenant which God made with our fathers,
         saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
Rick Atchley probably from father John T. Willis says that 2 Chronicles 29 as Hezekiah's Plague Stopping Exorcism to cast out the "instruments" of the Assyrians substituted BURNT GOATS (which God did not command) with the Loud Noise to warn any godly person that they would be executed if they came near.  They burned infants just before Hezekiah substituted the Cappellas and resumed just after Hezekiah died.

General postings of false teachers and false teachers
Doctors of the Law, Universities and Staff the Cycle of Simony

See our look at Rick Atchley's Seven Churches in Revelation. 
Rick does not build on the foundation or the text and therefore misses the point that sowing discord with musical instruments--called sorcery in Revelation 18--is exactly what John warned us to mark and avoid
  1. If you say that Churches of Christ which did not use INSTRUMENTS during the School of the Word from the Wilderness onwwars was just and evil tradition.
  2. And from Genesis to Revelation musical machines are said to have been brought by Lucifer (ZOE) into the garden of Eden and resulted in some sexual hanky panky to REVELATION when the Babylon mother of harlot rises again and ALL of her religious STAFF are called sorcerers and will be cast alive into the Lake of Fire.
  3. Then Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that you despise the Word and the Latin word is BLASPHEME

THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST DEFINED THE END-TIME EFFEMINATE RELIGIONISM

Isaiah 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

PAUL SILENCES THE DIVERSITY SO THERE CAN BE UNITY

People may fall beyond redemption when they grasp that God sends strong delusions to anyone who does not obey the singular pattern: to PREACH the WORD by READING the Word for Comfort and doctrine.  Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or Sophists: sophists are preaching beyond the Word for hire, singing, playing instruments, acting or massing a STAFF defined in all religions as PARASITES.  Since you can fool most of the people most of the time these false teachers just laugh when you tell them that the "kings have no clothes."

Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children,
        tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
        by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Panourgia (g3834) pan-oorg-ee'-ah; from 3835; adroitness, i.e. (in a bad sense) trickery or sophistry: - (cunning) craftiness, subtilty.

-Panourg-êma  A. knavish trick, villainy, S.El.1387 (lyr.), LXX Si.1.6 (v.l.); sophistry, Gal.5.251; cf. panourgeuma.
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.
1Cor. 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
        For it is written,
        He taketh the wise  sophia
        in their own craftiness. pa^nourg-ia
Luke 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Keith Brenton
New Wineskins Magazine series promoting Instrumental music: Jay Guin's interview with Rick Atchley and Chris Seidman Confess the calculated conspiracy to strip all truth about instruments from sermons and Youth Gatherings. This Purpose Driven Church deliberately rejects the truth of the Word and church history but MARKS itself as the end-time agents of the Babylon mother of harlots using lusted after fruits. John calls them sorcerers and marks them to be delivered alive (now) into the lak of fire. That fits the prophecy of Christ throughout Scripture but especially Isaiah 30.


Read the added lower notes that proves that this is rank paganism. Rick and David Faust have Mark Henderson at Quail Springs doing catch up with a lot of sowing of discord.

Rick Atchley: The era of the progressive Church of Christ is over.

Back in the 80’s you could go to any major city, especially in the South, and you could find a progressive Church of Christ — and if they would preach grace, and if they would put words on a screen, and if they would let divorced people place membership, they would grow.

The generation of Boomers has enough denominational loyalty that they’re going to find the least legalistic

Well, we discipled the children of those progressive churches
        for a whole generation to grow past us Boomers.
        They never heard the sermons we heard.
        They never heard the rationale for a cappella music.

We sent them to youth rallies and Church of Christ events
        with some of the finest Christian bands in the world.

        We discipled our children to leave our Movement!

8.07.12 The Spirit OF Christ denied that God commanded king, kingdom, Temple, priests, animal sacrifices or Levites who were SOOTHSAYERS with instrumental noise (never music).

God's true command was that the Levites "stand in ranks" ready to execute any civillian or any Levite who came near any "holy" thing or into any "holy" place.  They were under the Kings and Commanders of the Army.

If you say that God commanded something He did not command The Spirit OF Christ in
Jeremiah He calls it despising or Blasphemy.

The word "psallo" upon which instrumental churches are built and ANTI-non instrumental people sow discord means PLUCK: primarily a bow string.  The word never in recorded history meant to Play a Harp much less Play a Melody upon a Harp.

To lead people into trying to silence the mouth of the "victim" based on the PLUCKING word with the same root as SOP further insists that The Spirit of Christ, the inspired writers and recorded history prior to the Disciples were TERMINALLY IGNORANT.

A literate Holy Spirit or Paul or anyone worthy of being a disciple of Christ given A holy spirit or A good conscience to be able to read BLACK text on BROWN paper would know two sets of facts:

First, since psallo never at any time or place in recorded history MEANT more than pluck or smite a string with your FINGERS and never with a PLECTRUM they would know that pluck had and has absolutely no "musical" content.  That is why there is no recorded Bible or literary example of being able to instruct someone to pluck a string with one word. If you tell someone PLUCK there is no telling what would happen to you.  The same is true in English and all languages.

Second, if you want to tell someone to PLUCK an INSTRUMENT there are compound words for all named instruments and STYLES of plucking.

Third, you blaspheme the Spirit of Christ by saying that:
  1. He was too ignorant not to use TWO words such as PSALLO Plus A Harp.
  2. He was too ignorant not to use one compound word which meant play a harp
  3. He just wanted to throw in stumble words for those who have not been washed with water INTO the Word or school of Christ or
  4. He intentionally wanted to sow massive discord since singing as an ACT was first imposed in the hear 373.
Even if "psallo" meant play a harp it could NEVER be used to justify a guitar pick, a flute or drums

Playing the part of those deliberately sowing discord and blaspheming, let's assume that the Spirit of Christ or Paul or anyone prior to 1878 was too illiterate to know about all of the compound words.  For instance.

Since melos or melody is the opposite of rhema or speaking about the covenant and law, it is impossible to both sing AND make melody at the same time with or without an instrument. The "logos" forms of speech are also the opposite of poetry or music.

"Our" Movement in these papers means the ones who PAID me to be loyal to their views. It is the historic Church of Christ which--from the Church of Christ in the wilderness onward--never engaged in congregational singing with instrumental accompaniment.  Rick being informed by the NACC thinks that Hezekiah's Burnt Goat to try to appease Israel--the defected instrumental sect.  Hezekiah used the goats (on the left) to try to stop the Burnt Offering of infants faciliated by the Levites from Egypt onward and in 2 Chronicles 28. 
Romans 2:21 thou therefore that teachest another, teachest thou not thyself?
        thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
Romans 2:22 thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery?
        thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou rob temples?

-Aristotle Poetics [941b] if convicted. Theft of property is uncivilized,
        open robbery is
shameless: neither of these has any of the sons of Zeus practiced,
        through delight in fraud or force.

        Let no man, therefore, be deluded concerning this or persuaded
        either by
poets or by any perverse myth-mongers into the belief that,
        when he
thieves or forcibly robs (churches), he is doing nothing shameful,
        but just what the gods themselves do.1
                That is both unlikely and untrue;
                and whoever acts thus unlawfully is neither a god at all
nor a child of gods;

Hermes is specially in mind, as notorious for his thefts and frauds; cp. Homer Iliad 5. 390; 24. 395, etc. [Hermes is the mark of the New Hermeneutic: based on lies]
Corrupting the Word means "selling learning at retail" and also means adultery: From the wilderness onward the direct command is to teach the Word of God "as it as been taught" and those who refuse are called false teachers.Beside all of the words which point to musical idolatry, Rick Atchley has no command, example or inference that Jesus engaged in or commanded rhetoric, performance singing or instruments: in fact quoting Ezekiel he names the HYPOCRITES.

THE PROPHETIC TYPE REPEATED IN REVELATION 17-18 AND A CHURCH NEAR YOU

Psalm 41 gives the ALARM or triumph over (vocal or instrumental rejoicing, rhetoric) as the MARK of Judas: the Judas Bag was that of a thief for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments. Revelation 17-18 still leaves performance music as the MARK of Sorcerers who with the dogs and liars will be (have been) cast alive into the lake of fire.

The Thanksgiving Hymns (1QH) from the Dead Sea Scrolls interprets Psalm 41:

They come to inquire of Thee
from the mouth of lying prophets deceived by error
Who speak with strange lips to Thy people,
and an alien tongue,
That they may cunningly turn
all their work to folly.

For Thou, O God, hast sheltered me
from the children of men
And hast hidden Thy Law within me
against the time when Thou shoudst
reveal Thy salvation to me.

All who have eaten my bread
have lifted their heel against me (cf John 13:18)
And all those joined to my Council
have mocked me with wicked lips.

Thy members of my Covenant have rebelled
and have murmured round about me;
They have gone as talebearers
before the children of mischief
concerning the mystery which Thou hast hidden in me...

They have overtaken me in a narrow pass without escape
And there is no rest for me in my trial.
They sound my censure upon a harp
and their murmuring and storming upon a zither."

Anguish seizes me
like the pangs of a woman in travail,
and my heart is troubled within me.
I am clothed in blackness
and my tongue cleaves to the roof of my mouth. (Vermes, 

However, in victory it is said of Messiah:

I will groan with the zither of lamentation
in all grief-stricken mourning and bitter complaint
until iniquity and wickedness are consumed
and the disease-bringing scourge is no more.
An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more. Ps.41:8
Then will I play on the zither of deliverance
and harp of joy,
on the tabors of prayer and the pipe of praise
without end.

God won't let such people read or hear His Words: strong delusions results in religious services focused on rhetoric, singing and instruments. Christ identified these as the hypocritic arts and crafts of the Scribes and Pharisees.

Therefore they missed that because they volunteered to EXECUTE 3,000 of their brethren who engaged in musical idolatry of the Egyptian (etal) trinity at Mount Sinai.

Hezekiah knew that what God commanded was that the Levites STAND IN RANKS at the cursed slaughter of the innocents to execute any godly person who came near.

By using the Levites as the patternism for instrumental music people have doomed themselves to be executed spiritually because that's what God commanded.

Only for the BURNT OFFERING does reading 101a show that the Levites under the king and commanders of the army made instrumental noise.  History and Christ in the prophets knows that God never commanded sacrifices or burnt offerings: only a select priesthood made burnt offerings and these were to DEMONS.
This must be deception of Biblical proportions especially since it is based on violating all Biblical and Historical evidence. It is not possible to be so misinformed.

The Serpent Deceiver is defined as a Musical Enchanter(ess). Christ calls Tyre. Lucifer "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden."

"According to the system which Nimrod was the grand instrument in introducing, men were led to believe

that a real spiritual change of heart was unnecessary,
and that so far as change was needful,
they could be
regenerated by mere external means.

"Looking at the subject in the light of the Bacchanalian orgies (Read Ephesus and Corinth), which, as the reader has seen, commemorated the history of Nimrod, it is evident that
         he led mankind to seek their chief good in sensual enjoyment,

and showed them how they might enjoy the pleasures of sin, without any fear of the wrath of a holy God. 

"In his various expeditions he was always accompanied by troops of women; and by music and song, and games (ritual drama) and revelries, and everything that could please the natural hearts,

he commended himself to the good graces of mankind." (Hislop, Alexander, The Two Babylons, p. 55, Loizeaux Brothers)

Rome:

Therefore it was brought in secretly, and by little and little, one corruption being introduced after another, as apostacy proceeded, and the backsliding Church became prepared to tolerate it, till it has reached the gigantic height we now see, when in almost every particular the system of the Papacy is the very antipodes of the system of the primitive Church.

Rick Atchley: They’re not leaving the kingdom of God, and I’m not saying that — so please hear me say, I’m not placing the health of the Movement above the kingdom of God — I want my kids to love Jesus, but I do think that Churches need to understand.

The use of musicians and music as well as rhetoricians is the MARK that the kingdom has not come to that lost congregation. When a church turns to what John calls Sorcery with Instrumental Accompaniment, that body and the Lamps have been removed from the Kingdom of Christ.

Jesus said the kingdom of God does not come to "Religious Observations" or worship services: Jesus commanded the ekklesia or synagogue as A School of Christ (only). Too bad.
When God sends strong delusions the Lying Wonders are religious observations using rhetoric, singing and instruments SAYING that they are doing God's Will.

Rick Atchley: They are older and smaller, and their kids are gone. Their kids have fond memories of growing up in that church. The church taught them about Jesus, but now they are somewhere else.


You know, when I hear some of those old arguments about music, because of my history, even though I disagree, at least I can connect the dots and see how you got there. My children don’t even have the graph paper!

The doctors of the law--who take away the key to knowledge--and the scholars cannot grasp that at no time or place in the entire Bible did the godly people ever assemble to engage in congregational singing with instrumental accompaniment.  The Levites--the patternism of the NACC--engaged in Soothsaying with instrumental accompaniment. That was to warn any godly person not already abandoned that they would be executed if they came near.
Clement: Recount to us also the useless oracles of that other kind of divination, or rather madness, the Clarian, the Pythian, the Didymaean, that of Amphiaraus, of Apollo, of Amphilochus; and if you will, couple ("deprive of their holiness," "no longer count holy." Eusebius reads: "unholy interpreters." )

Apollo is the Biblical Abaddon or Apollyon.

with them the expounders of prodigies, the augurs, and the interpreters of dreams. And bring and place beside the Pythian those that divine by flour, and those that divine by barley,

and the ventriloquists still held in honour by many. Let the secret shrines of the Egyptians and the necromancies of the Etruscans be consigned to darkness.

Insane devices truly are they all of unbelieving men.
Goats, too, have been confederates in this art of soothsaying, trained to divination; and crows taught by men to give oracular responses to men.

Assume that you are aware that because of musical idolatry God turned Israel over to worship the starry host: that was the same planetary and fire worship practiced by the Jews who were now Egyptians.And Amos, Acts 7 and others give the NAMES to whom God abandoned Israel and they have names associated with the sun, moon and the known wandering stars and planets and not the Jehovah God of Abraham.

"Hathor and Aphis, the cow and bull gods of Egypt, were representatives of sun worship. Their worship was just one stage in the long Egyptian history of solar veneration. The golden calf at Mount Sinai is more than sufficient evidence to prove that the feast proclaimed was related to sun worship.

The event at Mount Sinai was just one episode in the Satanic apostasy which began at the tower of Babel. The celebration of December 25th, originally proclaimed in honor of the birth of the sun god Mithra, can only be one of the final events in the long continuing saga of Satanic sun worship." Richard Rives, Too Long in the Sun, Partakers Pub., 1996, pp. 129-30.

        According to Jeremiah, vii. 21, 22, blood offerings were not divinely commanded.
        According to the Samaveda, says Jacolliot,7 it is murder to shed blood except as an offering.
        In comparing the Jewish religion with the Hindu, Leviticus, xvii. 3, 4, offers a positive testimony.
        The verses show that the Hebrews were under the sway of this chief brahman doctrine.
Porphyry The Iamblichus

"As Manetho related, they were used in archaic times to burn living men in the city of Ilithyia styling them Typhonian." Ashmes, who expelled the Hyk-sos rulers, put an end to the custom. It existed in Asiatic countries, where Semitic worships existed, and even the Hebrews seem not to have been an exception

yry and others of the philosophers of that period

        declared distinctly that the sacrifices of living creatures
        were not for the gods at all,
        but for daemons and the lower orders of spiritual essences.

   Plutarch denounced this practice,
        and declared his belief that there was never a god that required it,
        but it was only intended to avert and appease the malice and rancor of evil spirits.
And you pick as LEGALISTIC PATTERNISM one of the isolated slaughter of God's animals with loud noise called exorcism for which Hezekiah had to look back almost 300 years from its authority for "stopping a plague."And Christ in the prophets calls these Civil-Military-Clergy people who had rejected God's rule, robbers and parasites.

And you say that this is the pattern for the ekklesia or synagogue or Church of Christ which outlawed "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" including rhetoric.We can assume that such a person is selling himself as a brain surgeon when he doesn't know where to cut.
None of the Bible is metrical and cannot be sung tunefully even if they knew how, and congregational singing of radically rewritten Psalms (only) to be sung in unison (only) never happened until after the Reformation. We can assume that anyone who can even hallucinate congregational singing with instrumental accompaniment is SEEING THE UNSEEN as LU suggests that you use your imagination which God  says is only evil continually.

It is not possible that anyone who knows that only baptized disciples are Christiains can define the word "disciple" and still impose by violent means a "musical worship team" to fabricate their own text. By refusing to comply with "teaching that which has been taught" or "that which is written for our learning" one is violating direct commands and lying that God has the right to command, example or infer.

My thesis is that Rick has never read Christ's views about instrumental music.  He is reading off the NACC white paper but does not grasp that "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" or elevated forms of speech was OUTLAWED for the Church of Christ in the wilderness.

Chris Seidman: Let me say this, I don’t think whether our churches become “hybrids” with a cappella and instrumental services will be the difference-maker in whether the younger generations stay with the Movement. I think there are bigger fish to fry in their minds. But I do think that music is a variable in their decision.
Not only is the instrumental genre a part of the culture,
but they are growing up with it being used in their children’s and youth ministries.
Yes, we knew that this was going on and it is called "boiling the frogs" to disciple the NEXT generation to be disloyal to the Word of God.

The kingdom of God does not come with religious observation or with INSTRUMENTAL SERVICES: the Kingdom of God is withing a believer.  That is the only place where one can worship in Paul's UNIQUE sense of "giving heed to the Word of God." Paul said that they worshipped IN THE SPIRIT as opposed to IN THE FLESH specificially to keep the dogs, catamites or old style praise singers called Cynics from attacking from within.

We always understood this to be the method of deliberately altering the minds of the youth so they would finance people with no Biblical role and no dole.


Chris Seidman: When they get to adulthood and begin functioning within a local church in our heritage, they will notice its absence. And I think that in the long run, they won’t engage in a discussion because,
as Rick said, they don’t even have the graph paper to connect the dots.
They’ll be more likely just to quietly transition to another part of Christendom.

This is happening right now. Between our concern for the younger generations in the Movement and our desire to reach those who have disengaged or never connected with Jesus in our culture, we think it’s worth addressing the matter.

That is whistling in the cemetary by those whose hostile takeover has had almost no effect.  In fact, as they mature they will be disgusted by rhetorical (effeminate) preaching and the wimpy-burger praise singers.

CLAIMING TO BE A TEACHER BUT NOT KNOWING THAT THE CHURCH OF CHRIST IS BUILT ON THE PROPHETS AND APOSTLES IS DANGEROUS.  That is why most preachers and "scholars" cannot read BLACK text on BROWN  paper where Christ REPUDIATES you and puts you beyond redemption:

Eusebius reads: "unholy interpreters." )

Apollo is the Biblical Abaddon or Apollyon.

Prophetic:

Isa 57:18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: 
        I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

Isa 57:19 I create the fruit of the lips; 
        Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him.

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 to God continually,
        that is, the fruit of our lips
        giving thanks to his name.

Amos and John warn about the "Lips of the Fruits."

All recorded history proves that religious services with singing and instruments is the mark of The Lips of the Fruits.

The Levites: Acted as Soothsayers with Instrumental Accompaniment. They were commanded to stand guard (God's command in 2 Chronicles 29) and make a loud crashing sound. This was not "worship" but to warn any godly non-Levite who came near that they would be EXECUTED. Moses ordained them to bear the burden of THEIR OWN INIQUITY and to guard the not-commanded sacrificial system from non-Levi tribes.  The Levites failed when they took the sacrifices out from behind closed gates and walls in Jerusalem where the horrors of slaughtering and burning God's creatures and the lambs of the poor was exposed for what it was. Christ says that it was NOT commanded.  If you say that it WAS commanded then Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that you have blasphemed the Holy Spirit of Christ

When you have been deluded you must boast! Rick Atchley speaks of the "progressive Church of Christ" which we know to date from the census of the Disciples of Christ in 1971 which recognized the beginning of the Christian Church / Churches of Christ as a separate denomination regulated by the NACC: first setting up new turf in 1927.  Men began to "progress" people by gradual introduction of "acts" which they understood to be "discording" but which would in time bear fruits.  Having made that divisive, discording leap, the next Purpose Driven Step was to "go all of the way" and become what any Bible-honoring disciple understands to be SECTARIAN or HERETICAL which means "to steal other people's property by induced dissociation by "a New Style of Music or Drama" which is exactly the meaning of the BEAST in the book of Revelation. 

You should understand that the Grace-Centered cult used grace to mean "we gonna violate the principles of Christ but grace gonna give us cover."  Grace is another designator of Christ Who came as Word to teach us to DENY what the Post-Progressives actively promote:
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
        (and we beheld his glory,
        the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
        full of grace and truth.

John 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying,
        This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me:
        for he was before me.
John 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses,
        but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that,
        denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
        we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope,
        and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us,
        that he might redeem us from all iniquity,
        and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Titus 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Universal Thesis: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2Tim. 2:15

Dividing means to teach logon as it has been delivered
Word or Logos: Opposite to rhetoric, singing, playing, preacher's tales.
Christ in Isaiah 58 forbids "speaking your own words or seeking your own pleasure."
Looks like the NACC has snookered these men into violating ALL of the direct commands not availabile to the "doctors of the Law."

Universal AntiThesis: But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 2Tim. 2:16

And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 2Tim. 2:17

Vain includes any of the WORKS of human hands or human rhetoric or human music.

Jesus Christ says:

And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. John 17:5

I have manifested thy name unto the men
        which thou gavest me OUT of the world:
        thine they were, and thou gavest them me;

they have kept thy word. John 17:6

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

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

I pray for them: I pray NOT for the world,

        but for them which thou hast
given me; for they are thine. John 17:9

Neither pray I for these alone,
        but for them also which shall

If you fabricate your own songs and sermons then Jesus says that the Father has not given you to the Son.
If you fabricate your own songs and sermons they will believe in YOU and your words.
Facts prove that people fabricate because they KNOW that teaching the truth would not make them rich and famous and they would have to suffer.

Instruments are the MARKS that God has removed the speakers, singers and instrument players from the kingdom at the same time that the LAMPS are removed (Revelation 18) because all of these arts are named hypocrites by Jesus and sorcerers by John: the sorcerers are already cast alive into the Lake of Fire and that is why they cannot stay still or quiet.

JESUS DOES NOT PRAY FOR THOSE OF THE WORLD WHO HAVE NO INHERITANCE IN A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM.

God the One Father in Heaven made Jesus of Nazareth to be both Lord and Christ. God breathed (spirit) His thoughts on Jesus who articulated the very Words of God.  Jesus the Son of God delievered these words to the Apostles. The Apostles in turn left us a "memory" of their eye and ear witness of the Rising Lord. Peter says that those who do not speak what was revealed through the Prophets and Apostles IS A FALSE TEACHER.

Christ in Isaiah 55 gave us the "free water of the Word" and in Isaiah 58 commanded us NOT to seek our own pleasure or even speak our own words. Paul being Prophet-literate commanded the same thing in Romans 15 where all of the hypocritic (Scribes and Pharisees) arts and crafts are FORBIDDEN.

Even Simple Simons know not to arouse the people's lust of the eyes and ears when Jesus comes to be our teacher when the elders "teach that which has been taught." Rick Atchley got his "spiritual" message from the WORLD and therefore Jesus will not even pray for him.

WHAT RICK DOESN'T GRASP IS THAT THE NACC AGENTS WERE BUSY CUCKOLDING THE LATTER DAY PROPHETS. 

See David Faust's insisting on Instrumental Music while PRETENDING to be preaching 'unity.'

Rick just told you how "WE" deliberately REMOVED the graph paper: by musical performance the minds of the kids weree also altered based on all recorded history where "people set their lies to music to deceive the simple."

By believing all of the lies on the NACC white paper, Rick was also deprived of the graph paper which had all of the dots removed.  He was carefully handled

If Rick had become a Disciple of Christ he would have found not a single instance of God's righteous people ever goint to synagogue where the elders violated the direct commands of Christ for the Qahal, synagogue or church of Christ in the wilderness.  You have to be strongly delusioned to impose music where the Campbells understood the Bible and taught:

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


That's what all of the writers wrote but delusioned people cannot read BLACK text on BROWN PAPER.
  1. Rick Atchley, Chris Seidman and band follow the NACC credo that God commanded instrumental music for worship under the Monarchy.
  2. If God did not command musical instruments at any time and place.
  3. The Christ in Jeremish 23 says that all of this band of men have blasphemed the Holy Spirit of Christ in the prophets.
  1. Rick Atchley, Chris Seidman, the once-Christian colleges say that the Levites are the patternists for instrumental music.
  2. Moses elevated the Levites to their role because they volunteered to slaughter 3,000 of their "brethren" for engaging in musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.           Christ in the Prophets makes it certain.
  3. The command of God was to STAND IN RANKS to slaughter any non-cursed civillian from coming near any holy thing or place during the burnt offering.
  4. The Musical Worship Team boasts of standing in the holy place and they will NOT tolerate any one not of their race to perform music in the neo-worship of the starry host.    
  1. The Levites were cursed by father Jacob as murderous people. He told us NOT to enter their covenant or assemblies
  2. The Levites volunteered to slaughter 3,000 of the brethren who engaged in musical idolatry on the rest day.
  3. The Role of the Levites commanded by God was to stand guard and execute anyone who came into their assemblies.
  4. The Role commanded by the King and Commanders was to make loud "instrumental noise" to warn people to be "outside the camp" or if authorized bowing or on their face.
See the nature of the Levites (Musical Worship Team) the Kings set over you have imposed proving the "strong delusion" marked by all of the religious services using any performing art: Jesus called them hypocrites (speakers, singers, players)

Corrupting the Word: selling learning (just fabricated) at retail. Sermonizing for pay.

1. Should Christian teaching be regarded as a profession? It is so now: men are brought up to it, trained for it, and live by it, as architects, lawyers, doctors.

Surely preaching the gospel should no more be regarded as a profession than the talk of loving parents to children.

Surely official preaching has no authority, either in Scripture, reason, or experience, and it must come to an end sooner or later." (Pulpit Commentary, 1 Cor. p. 464).

See John Calvin on the need for a Restoration Movement excluding professional preachers.

"For what duties do they perform in return? In the same way as anciently, under the laws, those who served at the altar lived by the altar, "even so hath the Lord ordained, that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel" (1 Cor. 9:14). [daily dole of food while on duty]

These are Paul's words. Let them, then, show us that they are ministers of the gospel, and I will have no difficulty in conceding their right to stipend.

The ox must not be muzzled that treadeth out the corn [1 Cor. 9:9]. But is it not altogether at variance with reason that the ploughing oxen should starve, and the lazy asses be fed?

They will say, however, that they serve at the altar. I answer, that the priests under the law deserved maintenance, by ministering at an altar;

but that, as Paul declares, the case under the New Testament is different. And what are those altar services, for which they allege that maintenance is due to them?

Forsooth, that they may perform their masses and chant in churches, for example, partly labor to no purpose, and partly perpetrate sacrilege, thereby provoking the anger of God. See for what it is that they are alimented at the public expense!

Rick Atchley: “If you’ve got people who still feel that their relationship with God depends on how we do things at church, then this is not going to fly — and you can’t get there because you did a series on grace.”  “An Afternoon with Rick Atchley and Chris Seidman, Part 3” (New Wineskins, September – December 2010

Then why radically change "how we do things at church" and say that God commanded instrumental praise and we should not be disobedient. The NACC led dogma is that instruments are COMMANDED, therefore, "you cannot DO church without instruments." Why else would one drive out the owners?

Christ identified the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the wilderness it was:

INCLUSIVE of Reading, Rest and Rehearsing the Word of God (only)
EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing including elevated styles of speaking.

That is defined as the ONLY time and place the godly people asssembled and only for instruction.

Rick Atchley, Chris Seitman, Jay Guin etal all use the BURNT OFFERING of the goats trying to appease the nation of Israel to get them to return to protect Hezekiah as their PATTERNISM.  These great pretenders and truth benders do not want you to know that it was because of musical idolatry that God turned them over to worship the starry host.  That created the Civil-Military-Clergy Sect which Christ in the prophets calls robbers and parasites.

John 9:39 And Jesus said,
        For judgment I am come into this world,
        that they which see not might see;
        and that they which see might be made blind.
John 9:40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words,
        and said unto him, Are we blind also?
John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin:
        but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
Jesus pointed to Christ in Ezekiel 33 and identifies the Scribes and Phariseess as speakers, singers and instrument players. They were robbers because god did NOT command the king, kingdom, temple, sacrifices or the sacrificial exorcism noises.

John 10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them:
        but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again,
        Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
John 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers:
         but the sheep did not hear them.

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

THOSE ROBBERS WHO KILLED BEFORE CHRIST

When Hezekiah suggested a burnt offering of GOATS to try to appease Isreal, the Levites under thee king and commanders of the army made a great noise.

Rick Atchley etal of the NACC delusion claim that God commanded instrumental praise in YOUR church and you had better not disobey.

Christ in Isaiah and Jeremiah 7 said that God DID NOT COMMAND sacrifices or burnt offerings.

THESIS
Isaiah 66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool:
        where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
Isaiah 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and those things have been,
         saith the LORD: but to this man will I look,
        even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit,
        and trembleth at my word.

ANTITHESIS
Isaiah 66:3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man;
        he that sacrificeth a lamb,
        as if he cut off a dog’s neck;
        he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swines blood;
        he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol.
        Yea, they have chosen their own ways,
        and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

Jesus said that those Christ identified as parasites and robbers--or hypocrites in Ezekiel 33 as speakers, singers and instrument players were KILLERS.  It would seem to be beyond redemption to have such a perverted view of God when no one could have misssed the point.

        and gave them up to worship the host of heaven;
        as it is written in the book of the prophets,
        O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts
        and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?

BUT God had not commanded sacrifices. But:

Acts 7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch,
        and the star of your god Remphan,
        figures which ye made to worship them:
        and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

But these fire-worshippers carried with them the arks of Moloch and Khiun (Life-god), their Adon, and they had, like the other peoples of the Delta, their Mysteries, which the priests instituted.

The sacrificial system--burning goats with the Warrior's loud noise--was off-limits to the godly people.  Jacob in Genesis 49 outlaws attending their assemblies and looks forward to the Messiah to destroy the Levitical system recorded says Christ in the prophets by "the lying pen of the Scribes." The same Scribes Jesus calls hypocrites identified by Christ in Ezekiel 33 as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players.

LYING ABOUT GRACE IS PART OF THE PATTERNISM

God's Word is always antithetical to the always pagan instrumental pagans: The thesis is that Grace was "a blue-eyed blond prostitute musician" in the Greek World. If you asked someone where to find Grace they would point you to a pagan "worship center." God the Father made Jesus of Nazareth to be both Lord and Christ to tell you of better things.  Jesus grew up close to a theater and He knew abouth those called Graces or Muses and had John tell us that they performed as sorcerers (Rev 18) under the Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 18). And tell you that sorcerers and dogs (catamites) and liars will be--maybe have been--cast while still alive into a lake of fire.  The maggots or parasites eating up the rotting and burning flesh at the garbage dump are singers and players.

The antithesis is that Grace is personified in Jesus of Nazareth as is the Word of God. The Grace of god DENIES what these people are promoting.

Titus 2:11 For the [1] grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

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.
[4] we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Redemption or Remission happens ONLY after BAPTISM
even the forgiveness of sins:
        [7] and purify unto himself a peculiar people,
                zealous of good works.
and ye shall receive the gift of A holy spirit

THOSE WHO FIGHT BAPTISM REJECT GRACE: THAT FORM OF DOCTRINE (BAPTISM) IS A TUPOS WHICH MEANS INSTEAD OF. BAPTISM IS SOMETHING YOU CAN OBEY INSTEAD OF DYING FOR YOUR OWN SINS AND BE ETERNALLY LOST. THAT IS HOW PAUL DEFINES THE ONLY GRACE YOU ARE GOING TO GET.

Jay Guin: “In 1 Corinthians, Paul culminates his discussion on the Lord’s Supper, women’s role in the assembly, and spiritual gifts by emphasizing the supremacy of love (1 Corinthians 13) and testing proposed activities in the assembly by asking, not whether the activities are on a pre-approved list of ‘acts of worship,’ but whether these actions build up, encourage, and console the saints (1 Corinthians 14:3 ESV)” Jay Guin’s article “‘Thy Kingdom Come’ and the Instrument” (New Wineskins, September – December 2010)

Paul does not say that ALL things are to be done but ONLY those things which edify. After silencing the private opinions in Romans 14 he commanded "using one mind and one mouth" to teach "that which is written for our learning" in romans 15.

Paul, like Jesus, only speaks to those who love the truth: he always repudiates the pagan worshipped marked by clanging brass and tinkling women. Then, he defines SPEAKING and never singing.

P. Ovidius Naso, The Epistles of Ovid Ov. Ep. Sapph. 4

Modesty is to be joined with love, as far as is possible and convenient. Love commands me to write what I was ashamed to speak. It is not safe to slight the commands of Love; he reigns uncontrolled, and has power even over the sovereign gods. He first commanded me, when full of doubts and fears, to write; Write, said he; though hard as steel, he will yield his captive hands. Be present, Love; and, as you nourish in my bones a wasting fire, fix also in his breast a dart that may soften it towards me. Yet will I not by any crime stain my connubial vows. My fame (search into it) you will find fair and spotless. Love, the later it seizes us, rages the more. I burn inwardly; I burn, and my breast feels the hidden woundAnd now (what you will scarcely believe) my inclinations carry me after new and unaccustomed delights. I long to assault with you the savage breed; already the Delian goddess, distinguished by the crooked bow, presides in my thoughts; your judgement in this determines also mine. I am impatient to range the woods, to pursue the stage into the toils, and cheer the nimble hounds along the rocky cliffs; or lance the trembling dart with a vigorous arm, and stretch my wearied limbs on a grassy bank.

Oft I am pleased to drive the nimble chariot involved in dust, and guide the panting steeds with steady rein. Now wild, I rave as a Bacchanal when full of the inspiring god,

or like those who on the Idean hill urge with redoubled strokes the sounding brass; yea more wild than those whom the Dryads half divine, and horned Satyrs, strike with terror and amazement.

Gaius Valerius Catullus, Carmina (ed. Leonard C. Smithers) 64

But on another part [of the tapestry] swift hastened the flushed Iacchus with his train of Satyrs and Nisa-begot Sileni, seeking you, Ariadne, and aflame with love for you. ... These scattered all around, an inspired band, rushed madly with mind all distraught, ranting "Euhoe," with tossing of heads "Euhoe." Some with womanish hands shook thyrsi with wreath-covered points; some tossed limbs of a rended steer; some girded themselves with writhed snakes; some enacted obscure orgies with deep chests, orgies of which the profane vainly crave a hearing;

others beat the tambours with outstretched palms, or from the burnished brass provoked shrill tinklings, blew raucous-sounding blasts from many horns, and the barbarous pipe droned forth horrible song. With luxury of such figures was the coverlet adorned, enwrapping the bed with its mantling embrace

The only worship concept for the synagogue or Church in the wilderness was to give heed to the Word of Christ: if you listen to the pale horses of rhetoricians or praise singers you in fact WORSHIP them and because the eternal persona is of gender-confused this is proof that the children and women (effeminate) Christ prophesied about In Isaiah has come true.

WE then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Romans And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people. Romans 15:10
Romans 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. Romans 15:3
And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people. Romans 15:11
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning (teaching), that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust. Romans 15:12
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: Romans 15:5 Now the God of hope fill you (not with wine but) with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13
That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify (tell of His works) God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6 And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. Romans 15:14
Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister (deacon) of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: Romans 15:8 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God. Romans 15:15
And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will (2) that the offering (bloodless sacrifice) up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:16

(2) sing unto thy name. Romans 15:9

This is the way to let Jesus Christ "sing" to the Gentiles.

ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed. Rom 15:18

Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Rom 15:19

Jay Guin: “Those who use 1 Corinthians 14 in their anti-instrumental polemics never approach the question asking the same questions Paul asks: does the instrument help build up, encourage, or console the saints or draw unbelievers toward worship? If so, they are approved. That’s Paul’s reasoning.” Jay Guin’s article “‘Thy Kingdom Come’ and the Instrument” (New Wineskins, September – December 2010)

THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding , or a tinkling cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1

Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is WITHIN US where we think as Disciples are commanded to do: the kingdom does not come with OBSERVATION which means with "religious observations" or so-called "worship services.

Paul was speaking to the literate people of the time and the sounding brass and tinkling cymbals are marks of the theater or of witchcraft.  Here are something you should read:

A further peculiarity of Dodona was the "bronze," a large gong set vibrating at every breeze by a scourge held in the hand of a figure standing over it;

the persistent ringing passed into a Greek proverbial phrase--Khalkos Dodones ("Brass of Dodona")-- for a continuous talker who has nothing to say. Britannica Members

"A famous oracle in Epi'ros, and the most ancient of Greece. It was dedicated to Zeus (Jupiter), and situate in the village of Dodna.

The tale is, that Jupiter presented his daughter Theb with two black pigeons which had the gift of human speech. Lemprière tells us that the Greek word peleiai (pigeons) means, in the dialect of the Eprots, old women; so that the two black doves with human voice were two black or African women. One went to Libya, in Africa, and founded the oracle of Jupiter Ammon; the other went to Eprus and founded the oracle of Dodna. We are also told that plates of brass were suspended on the oak trees of Dodona, which being struck by thongs when the wind blew, gave various sounds from which the responses were concocted. It appears that this suggested to the Greeks the phrase Kalkos Dod ns (brass of Dodona), meaning a babbler, or one who talks an infinite deal of nothing. Bartleby

Tertullian (b155-d220) in Carthage where Molech worship probably originated and ended up in Jerusalem.

We see, therefore, that the arts also are consecrated to the service of the beings who dwell in the names of their founders; and that things cannot be held free from the taint of idolatry whose inventors have got a place among the gods for their discoveries.
            Nay, as regards the arts, we ought to have gone further back,
            and barred all further argument
            by the position that the demons,
                        predetermining in their own interests from the first, among other evils of idolatry,
                        the pollutions of the public shows,

with the object of drawing man away from his Lord
           
and binding him to their own service,
            carried out their purpose
            by bestowing on him the artistic gifts which the shows require.

For none but themselves would have made provision and preparation for the objects they had in view;
            nor would they have given the arts to the world by any but those in whose names, and images,
            and histories they set up for their own ends the artifice of consecration.

Paul in Romans warned

Rom. 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand:
        let us therefore cast off the works of darkness,
        and let us put on the armour of light.
Rom. 13:13 Let us walk honestly [decorous], as in the day;
        not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
Rom. 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
        and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Music is provided ONLY for the flesh.  Here is a picture of the Komos or rioting h2979.  The Judas bag was "for carrying the mouthpieces of wind instruments."  Here is a picture.


Jay Guin: “They are edified and built up in their faith by such instrumental accompaniment.” Al Maxey’s article “Reflective or Regulative?” (New Wineskins, September – December 2010)

The word "edified" in these passages mean EDUCATE: the commanded resource is 'that which is written for our learning."  Most people cannot be edified by "instrumental accompaniment" when they are commaned to SPEAK using one mind and one mouth.

WHAT PAUL OUTLAWED
: doubtful disputations consists of any private opinion which has no place in the church or synagogue where the patternism was and is;

That was by direct command of Christ for the Holy Convocation to which the godly were called.

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time

        hath in every city
        them that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Rom. 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

Disputing” implies a questioning mind and suggests an arrogant attitude by those who assume they’re always right. Arguing with others in the body of Christ is disruptive. That’s why Paul spent the first part of chapter 2 on humility.

To dwell above, with saints we love, that will be grace and glory
But to live below with saints we know, now that’s a different story!

Dialogismos is used 11 times in the Septuagint (LXX) (Ps 40:5, 56:5, 92:5, 94:11, 139:2, 139:20, 146:4, Isa 59:7, Jer 4:14, Lam 3:60-61) Dialogismos often means the perverse, vain thinking which contemplates destruction (Ps. 94:11), and is turned against God (Jer. 4:14; Isa. 59:7) and against the godly (Ps. 56:5). 

Commenting on Phil 2:14, MacArthur notes that dialogismos...

"soon developed the more specific ideas of questioning, doubting, or disputing the truth of a matter. In Romans 14:1, the word is used of passing judgment on another believer’s opinions and in 1 Timothy 2:8 it is rendered “dissension.” Whereas grumbling is essentially emotional, disputing is essentially intellectual. A person who continues to murmur and grumble against God will eventually argue and dispute with Him. (MacArthur, J. Philippians. Chicago: Moody Press)

THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT CHURCH IS A SCHOOL OF CHRIST and not a "worship center"

THE JEWS KILLED ANIMALS AND CHILDREN AND USED MUSIC TO STARVE THE PEOPLE

Rick Atchley says that God commanded them to kill goats and burn them with the warrior's noise never called music.
Christ says God did not command sacrifices or burnt offerings.

Rick Atchley says that David is a pattern for musical worship when David never performed as a worship leader in the public assembly.  Furthermore, he would have been executed if He took his harp into the holy places.

David praised God that he could put his boot on the head of Gentiles and shed their blood.
Jesus shed His blood for the Gentiles.

The only spiritual covenant was made with Abraham who was not a Jew: rather than being a blessing to the nations, Israel fell into the slaughter of the nations claiming that God had given them the land and the right to murder.

The Levites were abandoned to the worship of the starry host which is Rick Atchley's patternism.
The Godly people attended Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the Wilderness.

Christ in Spirit outlawed vocal or instrumental rejoicing which included alevated forms of rhetoric.
Rick becomes a hireling and assumes the right to betray the owners.

How edification is to take place in the ekklesia or church:
Aedificatio,  III. Figurative, building up, instructing, edification. Absolute: loquitur ad Aedificationem Ecclesiae, Vulg. 1 Cor. 14, 12; ib. Eph. 4, 12.

The phrase loquitur ad Aedificationem Ecclesiae defines THE meaning of the ekklesia or church and the same METHOD excludes music of any kind--more later.
1Corinthians 14:11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice,
        I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian,

HERE IS THE CONFESSION OF THE SATANIC PATTERNISM WE KNEW ALL ALONG:

Boasting that the Progressive movement has finished its task, Rick Atchley confesses what we have been telling you from the beginning.

Christ established the ekklesia which is Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ.

It was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word
It was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing including rhetoric.

Jesus and everyone else came preaching the gospel of the KINGDOM: the kingdom is the body of Christ or the Church of Christ.  The gospel is

Come to me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you Rest: or of the twos and three "come outside the campe and learn of me."

The sole purpose of Christ as THE HEAD of the church is to make known the manifold wisdom of God.

Graces and Muses were dirty adulteresses unleashed by Abaddon, Apollyon: people would understand the symbolic message of the Locusts as the MARK that the having-fallen star has taken control of your property.


Lucretius (98 - c. 55 BC): The Worship of Cybele
Wherefore great Mother of gods, and Mother of beasts,
And parent of man hath she alone been named.
Her hymned the old and learned bards of Greece....
Do name Idaean , giving her
Escort of Phrygian bands, since first, they say,
Rev. 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev. 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

From out those regions 'twas that grain began
Through all the world. To her do they assign
The Galli, the emasculate, since thus
They wish to show that men who violate
The majesty of the Mother and have proved
Ingrate to parents are to be adjudged
Unfit to give unto the shores of light
A living progeny. The Galli come:

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

Then raging wildly, breathless, wandering, with brain distraught, hurries Attis with her tambour, their leader through dense woods, like an untamed heifer shunning the burden of the yoke: and the swift Gallae press behind their speedy-footed leader
Rev. 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

THUS hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. Amos 8:1

And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more. Amos 8:2

Keleb (h3611) keh'leb; from an unused root mean. to yelp, or else to attack; a dog; hence (by euphemism) a male prostitute: - dog.

For dogs have compassed me: the assembly [multitude, swarm] of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. Ps.22:16


And hollow cymbals, tight-skinned tambourines
Resound around to bangings of their hands;
The fierce horns threaten with a raucous bray;
The tubed pipe excites their maddened minds
Rev. 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

In Phrygian measures; they bear before them knives,
Wild emblems of their frenzy, which have power
The rabble's ingrate heads and impious hearts
To panic with terror of the goddess' might.
Rev. 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. 

 
HERE IS THE UNIVERSAL SATANIC METHOD OF LYING TO DECEIVE PEOPLE THEY KNEW THEY COULD NOT DECEIVE WITH THE HONEST WORD OF GOD

Hislop: If it be inquired what was the object and design of these ancient "Mysteries,"
        it will be found that there was a wonderful analogy between them and that "Mystery of iniquity"
        which is embodied in the Church of Rome.

        Their primary object was to
introduce privately, by little and little,
        under the
seal of secrecy and the sanction of an oath,
        what it
would not have been safe all at once and openly to propound. 

That beautiful but abandoned queen of Babylon was not only herself a paragon of unbridled lust and licentiousness, but in the Mysteries which she had a chief hand in forming, she was worshipped as Rhea (Zoe), the great "MOTHER" of the gods, with such atrocious rites as identified her with Venus (Lucifer, Zoe), the MOTHER of all impurity, and raised the very city where she had reigned to a bad eminence among the nations, as the grand seat at once of idolatry and consecrated prostitution.

Thus was this Chaldean queen a fit and remarkable prototype of the "Woman" in the Apocalypse, with the golden cup in her hand, and the name on her forehead, "Mystery, Babylon the Great, the MOTHER of harlots and abominations of the earth."
The Babylon mother of harlots uses "lusted after fruits" as here soul snatchers.  In Revelation 18

Now if this was the case in Job's day, much more must it have been the case at the earlier period when the Mysteries were instituted. It was a matter, therefore, of necessity, if idolatry were to be brought in, and especially such foul idolatry as the Babylonian system contained in its bosom, that it should be done stealthily and in secret. *

* It will be seen by-and-by what cogent reason there was, in point of fact, for the profoundest secrecy in the matter. See Chapter II

Even though introduced by the hand of power, it might have produced a revulsion, and violent attempts might have been made by the uncorrupted portion of mankind to put it down; and at all events,  if it had appeared at once in all its hideousness, it would have alarmed the consciences of men, and defeated the very object in view.

That object was to bind all mankind in blind and absolute submission to a hierarchy entirely dependent on the sovereigns of Babylon. In the carrying out of this scheme, all knowledge, sacred and profane, came to be monopolised by the priesthood, who dealt it out to those who were initiated in the "Mysteries" exactly as they saw fit, according as the interests of the grand system of spiritual despotism they had to administer might seem to require.

Thus the people, wherever the Babylonian system spread, were bound neck and heel to the priestsThe priests were the only depositaries of religious knowledge; they only had the true tradition by which the writs and symbols of the public religion could be interpreted;and without blind and implicit submission to them, what was necessary for salvation could not be known.

Now compare this with the early history of the Papacy, and with its spirit and modus operandi throughout, and how exact was the coincidence! Was it in a period of patriarchal light that the corrupt system of the Babylonian "Mysteries" began? It was in a period of still greater light that that unholy and unscriptural system commenced, that has found such rank development in the Church of Rome.

It began in the very age of the apostles, when the primitive Church was in its flower, when the glorious fruits of Pentecost were everywhere to be seen, when martyrs were sealing their testimony for the truth with their blood. Even then, when the Gospel shone so brightly, the Spirit of God bore this clear and distinct testimony by Paul:

"THE MYSTERY OF INIQUITY DOTH ALREADY WORK" (2 Thess 2:7). That system of iniquity which then began it was divinely foretold was to issue in a portentous apostacy, that in due time would be awfully "revealed," and would continue until it should be destroyed "by the breath of the Lord's mouth (The Word), and consumed by the brightness of His coming."

But at its first introduction into the Church, it came in secretly and by stealth, with "all DECEIVABLENESS of unrighteousness." It wrought "mysteriously" under fair but false pretences, leading men away from the simplicity of the truth as it is in Jesus.

And it did so secretly, for the very same reason that idolatry was secretly introduced in the ancient Mysteries of Babylon;

it was not safe, it was not prudent to do otherwise. The zeal of the true Church, though destitute of civil power, would have aroused itself, to put the false system and all its abettors beyond the pale of Christianity,

Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time. Am.5:13

if it had appeared openly and all at once in all its grossness; and this would have arrested its progress.

Therefore it was brought in secretly, and by little and little, one corruption being introduced after another, as apostacy proceeded, and the backsliding Church became prepared to tolerate it, till it has reached the gigantic height we now see, when in almost every particular the system of the Papacy is the very antipodes of the system of the primitive Church.

Of the gradual introduction of all that is now most characteristic of Rome, through the working of the "Mystery of iniquity," we have very striking evidence, preserved even by Rome itself, in the inscriptions copied from the Roman catacombs.
