10:25:18 Instrumental Music and Religious Catamites: there is no recorded exception.

Instrumental "noise" in Scripture is the MARK of two things:

First: telling God that you will neither teach nor observe the Word of God.
Second: mark of BURNING.

Psallō IN THE HEART or SILENT simply means to SMITE a string (bow) with the FINGERS but not with the PLECTRUM to make a TWANGING sound.  The Psallō in the Bible has no musical component but speaks of the senior leaders plucking a lyre to seduce a younger male whose pubic hairs had been PLUCKED.

Vocal or Instrumental Psallo is NOT Psallō IN THE HEART or SILENT.  The Key factor in the Christian Assembly is that both male and female remain silent "so that we might all come to a knowledge of THE TRUTH or the Word of God.
Religious Music was performed by WOMEN or EFFEMINATE Males.  They both thought that their condition and public persona proved that they spoke for the "gods."  Paul then rebuffs all mediators in song and sermon but the READER because:

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

Paul prevents and outbreak of WRATH or an ORGY

The Evil Psallo  I. In gen., to play upon a stringed instrument; esp., to play upon the cithara, to sing to the cithara: “psallere saltare elegantius,Sall. C. 25, 2  canituri,”  SING and cantare marked as SORCERY.    saltare et cantare; Cic. Catil. 2.10.23   Suet. Tit. 3

Saltatio   Dancing was originally closely connected with religion. Plato thought all dancing should be based on religion, as it was, he says, among the Egyptians. It has been shown under Chorus that the chorus in the oldest times consisted of the whole population of a city, who met in a public place to offer up thanksgivings to the god of their country by singing hymns and performing dances. These dances, which, like all others, were accompanied by music,

In that regard, epic's position is parallel to that of rhetoric. Beginning with Aristotle's Rhetorica (1404a), critics of rhetorical performance have ascribed to lively delivery the same effect as that of acting. There is a persistent association between theatrics, bad rhetoric and effeminacy.

Rhetoric was forever at pains to disentangle itself from unwanted associations with female deception and histrionic art, because it was viewed as the art of socially weak women and slaves,and rhetoricians of all ages have assiduously fought against any trace of bodily and vocal practice associated with these groups.

However, from the examples that I have just used, it is evident, I believe, which art of music I consider appropriate in the training of the orator and to what extent.

Nevertheless, I think that I need to be more explicit in stating that the music which I prescribe is not the modern music which has been emasculated by the lascivious melodies of the effeminate stage and has to no small extent destroyed the amount of manly vigor that we still possessed.

I refer rather to the music of old with which people used to sing the praises of brave men and which the brave themselves used to sing. 

But this fact does not justify degeneration into sing-song or the effeminate modulations now in vogue. There is an excellent saying on this point attributed to Gaius Caesar while he was still a boy:

"If you are singing, you sing badly; if you are reading, you sing."

Girardian Reflections on the Lectionary:
Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. (45) It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.

45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses.
          Myth means to close ourselves to the victim
                and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective;
          mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out
          the voice of the victim

5.5 In general, then, the survival of the victim's perspective is highly unusual as a historical phenomenon -- until more recent history, that is, when the victim's perspective has finally established a beachhead in Western culture, namely, the cultures most often in closest contact with the Gospel (more on this below). (And it must be emphasized that the close contact is in the category of being an accident of history and not by any meritorious claims for Western culture. In short, the perspective of the victim has established a place in Western culture not because of any inherent merit in Western culture but because of the historical accident of being in close proximity to the Gospel over a long period of time.)

Cic. Catil. 2.10.23 In these bands are all the gamblers,
        all the adulterers, all the unclean and shameless citizens.
        These boys, so witty and delicate,
        have learnt not only to love and to be loved,
            not only to sing and to dance,
            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.
But what do those wretches want? Are they going to take their wives with them to the camp? how can they do without them, especially in these nights? and how will they endure the Apennines, and these frosts, and this snow?
      unless they think that they will bear the winter more easily
      because they have been in the habit of dancing naked at their feasts. O
war much to be dreaded, when Catiline is going to have his bodyguard of prostitutes!

Suet. Tit. 3 While yet a boy, he was remarkable for his noble endowments both of body and mind; and as he advanced in years, they became still more conspicuous.
        He had a fine person, combining an equal mixture of majesty and grace;
        was very strong, though not tall, and somewhat corpulent.
Gifted with an excellent memory, and a capacity for all the arts of peace and war; he was a perfect master of the use of arms and riding; very ready in the Latin and Greek tongues,
        both in verse and prose; and such was the facility he possessed in both,
        that he would harangue and VERSIFY extempore.
        Nor was he unacquainted with MUSIC,
                but could both SING and PLAY upon the HARP sweetly and scientifically.
        I have likewise been informed by many persons,
                that he was remarkably quick in writing short-hand,
                would in merriment and jest engage with his secretaries
                in the imitation of any hand-writing he saw, and often say, "
                that he was admirably qualified for forgery."

Quint. Inst. 2 15.9 So also according to general opinion Phryne was saved not by the eloquence of Hyperides, admirable as it was, but by the sight of her exquisite body, which she further revealed by drawing aside her tunic. And if all these have power to persuade, the end of oratory, which we are discussing, cannot adequately be defined as persuasion.

Sal. Cat. 25 In the number of those ladies was Sempronia, a woman who had committed many crimes with the spirit of a man. In birth and beauty, in her husband and her children, she was extremely fortunate;
        she was skilled in Greek and Roman literature;
        she could sing, play, and dance, *
        with greater elegance than became a woman of virtue,
and possessed many other accomplishments that tend to excite the passions. But nothing was ever less valued by her than honor or chastity. Whether she was more prodigal of her money or her reputation, it would have been difficult to decide. Her desires were so ardent that she oftener made advances to the other sex than waited for solicitation. She had frequently, before this period, forfeited her word, forsworn debts, been privy to murder, and hurried into the utmost excesses by her extravagance and poverty. But her abilities were by no means despicable; she could compose verses, jest, and join in conversation either modest, tender, or licentious. In a word, she was distinguished by much refinement of wit, and much grace of expression.

* Sing, play, and dance] “Psallere, saltare.” As psallo signifies both to play on a musical instrument,  
  and to sing to it while playing, I have thought it necessary to give both senses in the translation.

However  Psallō.   used in Scripture does NOT include plucking a harp to make music.

Even the Vocal or Instrumental Psallo  II. In partic., in ecclestiacal Latin, to sing the Psalms of David, Hier. Ep. 107, 10; Aug. in Psa. 46; 65; Vulg. 1 Cor. 14, 15

Everyone in Corinth wanted to speak their own sermons and sing their own songs. They wanted to speak in their own tongue or MINOR DIALECT while most in Corinth could understand Koine Greek. Unless there was someone to translate they should keep silent.

1Cor. 14:15 What is it then?
        I will pray WITH the spirit,
        and I will pray WITH the understanding also:
        I will sing WITH the spirit,
        and I will sing WITH the understanding also.

SPEAKING connected to TONGUES includes Playing Musical Instrument.

Neither Christian Church members not Churches of Christ are represented by institutions or wannabe institutions trying to speak where the Bible repudiates. For instance all of my retired life has witnessed the word SECTARIAN as a "IMAGE" to lie, cheat and steal congregations. Godly Bible Disciples could never do that.  Scripture specificially marks those who were OF OLD and predestined to reject the LOGOS or Regulative Principle:

The Bad News for the "Progressive" Inclusives:

2Pet. 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people,
        even as there shall be false teachers among you,
        who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, 
        even denying the Lord that bought them,
        and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

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

WHAT IS A HERETIC OR SECTARIAN? Doctors of the law, says Jesus "take away the key to knowledge" and "music means to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." It certainly seems to work among the Latest Spawn of Doctors of the Law who lack reading ability and minimal ethics: selling learning at retail is corrupting the Word because God will not let His Word be sold: the same word defines prostitutes and fish mongers.

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

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

Rick Atchley was the first one to boast that "we took our youth to hear the best "christian bands" (an oxymoron]: we taught our youth to LEAVE OUR MOVEMENT."

As a Purpose Driven Sectarians or Heretics they are INTENTIONAL DRIVEN (predestined says the text from old) in a frantic sense proven to because 'the devil knows that his KAIROS is short." Kairos is the demon son of Zeus and Khronos at just the right time.

A SECTARIAN in a remote sense is one who has the power to choose what they will do and with whom they will do and what they will do. Christian liberty gives one the power to be a sectarian.

However, in the Greek language and real examples, a heretic is one WHO CHOOSES to take your property by force.

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.

3.15.12  Royce Ogle Refutes Kenneth Sublett on Instrumental music

This is a set up by Danny Dodd minister at the Gateway Church of Christ in Pensacola, FL which Royce Ogle affirms,

Royce Ogle Patternism in the Church of Christ

Danny Dodd: Not the old television program- the Galatians! They were bewitched by a doctrine of the devil and entangled in “another gospel” (1:6-9) after having been set free by the grace of God. The culprit was legalism and it was taking them dangerously close to edge of this grace. (5:4)

IT WOULD BE A GOOD THING IF PEOPLE KNEW HOW TO RECOGNIZE A WITCH OR A LEGALISTS.  Rhetoric not intending to "teach that which is written for our learning" is rank legalism and ll musical terms point to witchcraft or sorcery.

When people waged to preach the Word of God toss the legalism raca word at the churches of Christ you know that they are upset that most Bible readers will not follow them into adding musical and theatrical performances. When they piped Jesus refused to sing and dance so they killed Him.

THE meaning of the gospel is is the CENI:

Matt. 11:28 Come unto me,
        all ye that labour
        and are heavy laden,
        and I will give you rest.
Matt. 11:29 Take my yoke upon you,
        and learn of me;  (that's CENI)
        for I am meek and lowly in heart:
        and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matt. 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light

Strab. 8.6.20 Again, Demaratus, one of the men who had been in power at Corinth, fleeing from the seditions there, carried with him so much wealth from his home to Tyrrhenia that not only he himself became the ruler of the city that admitted him, but his son was made king of the Romans. And the temple of Aphrodite was so rich that it owned more than a thousand temple slaves, courtesans, whom both men and women had dedicated to the goddess. And therefore it was also on account of these women that the city was crowded with people and grew rich; for instance, the ship captains freely squandered their money, and hence the proverb, “"Not for every man is the voyage to Corinth."Source unknown Moreover, it is recorded that a certain courtesan said to the woman who reproached her with the charge that she did not like to work or touch wool: "Yet, such as I am, in this short time I have taken down three webs."4 4 That is, "finished three webs." But there is a word play in katheilon histous which cannot be reproduced in English. The words may also mean "lowered three masts," that is, "debauched three ship captains."

So, to attain this object, both the lyre-master and his pupil
        must use the notes of the lyre, because of the distinctness of its strings,
        assigning to the notes of the song notes in tune with them; note 1

but as to divergence of sound and variety in the notes of the harp, when the strings sound the one tune and the composer of the melody another, or when there results a combination of low and high notes, of slow and quick time, of sharp and grave,

i.e. the notes of the instrument must be in accord with those of the singer's voice. “The tune, as composed by the poet, is supposed to have comparatively few notes, to be in slowish time, and low down in the register; whereas the complicated variation, which he is condemning, has many notes, is in quick time, and high up in the register.” (England.)

[812e] and all sorts of rhythmical variations are adapted to the notes of the lyre,—no such complications should be employed in dealing with pupils who have to absorb quickly, within three years, the useful elements of music.
        For the jarring of opposites with one another impedes easy learning
No one in history did not know that "music makes the lambs dumb before the slaughter." This MUST be the reason people repeat, repeat, repeat human compositions as LITURGY with no intention of letting Jesus get a word in edgewise,

REST is the Greek PAUO.

Jesus set us free from the Scribes and Pharisees He named speakers, singers and instrument players in Ezekiel 33. The Greek PAUO like Sabbath or Rest means STOP the speaking, singing, playing or whatever and "come learn of ME."  "ME" gets to be the teacher for Disciples who come outside the camp and "learn of Me." Disciples do not do ceremonial legalism.  The laded burden in both Hebrew and Greek are forms of songs intended to arouse anxiety.  Jesus set us free FROM "doubtful disputations" (Rom 14) so we can use one mind and one mouth to teach that which is written for our learning (Rom. 15). Jesus didn't teach us to sing when He attended the synagogue each Rest day.  Grace is another name personified in Jesus Christ. The Graces or Muses in the antithetical pagan world were female singers, players, dancers, dirty prostitutes. John calls the sorcerers in Revelatioon 18 and consigns them to the Lake of Fire. Liberty is FROM whatever comes into themind of clergy.

After Paul outlawed private interpretation or further expounding the use of the written "memory" is left to mark false teachers

Click here to grasp that the ANTI-legalists are in fact promoting legalism in the form of rhetoricians, singers and instrumentalists to AID Christ and His Word.

Just as they did at Mount Sinai onward, those regulated by the Laof of moses TOOK them into legalism: this was the worship of the starry host for which God abandoned the Levi tribe.  The "starry host" at Mount Sinai was identical to the LEGALISM in Galatia and most of the world from Egypt to Babylon.  There is no ROLE nor DOLE for anything beyond the direct command from the wilderness onward.

Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time
        hath in every city
        them that preach him,
        being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Since the Lord's Supper is still a teaching or showing forth act, the church is A School of the Bible: being waged to teach the Word and then invent ing one's own songs and sermons INTENDS to come to the aid of God.   Legalism in fact is based on the Greek NOMOS which went from cantillation or speaking to PRESERVE the Word, into a rigid set pattern defining the exact words, the exact note, the exact timing and none of it Biblical. This is the laded burden Jesus died to remove. Vile treachery is to accept people's money and the assume the right to be set at liberty from the direct command of Jesus Christ to "Teach what HE commanded to be taught." No one in recorded history failed to recoginize as did Christ in Ezekiel 33 that hypocrites are preachers, singers and instrument players:
Plat. Euthyd. 289e-
[289e] For not only do these speech-writers themselves, when I am in their company, impress me as prodigiously clever, Cleinias, but their art itself seems so exalted as to be almost inspired.   However, this is not surprising; for it is a part of the sorcerer's art,
Thespesios divinely sounding, divination.
Thaumastos lying wonder
Epode enchantment, sorcery, singing
Epodos a song, a Laded Burden, enchantment 

[290a] and only slightly inferior to that.

The SORCERER'S art is the charming of snakes and tarantulas and SCORPIONS and other beasts and diseases, while the other is just the charming and soothing of JURIES, assemblies, crowds, and so forth.  Or does it strike you differently? I asked. [The other being lyre-makers in regard to their lyres]

No, it appears to me, he replied, to be as you say.
Which way then, said I, shall we turn now? What kind of
art shall we try?
For my part, he said, I have no suggestion.
Why, I think I have found it myself, I said.
What is it? said Cleinias."

"in order that by these means they might indulge their own pleasures the more; and then, that they might not seem to be inclined of their own accord to unworthy services, taught men that demons could, by certain arts--that is, by magical invocations--be made to obey men; and so, as from a furnace and workshop of wickedness, they filled the whole world with the smoke of impiety, the light of piety being withdrawn." (Reognitions of Clement, Book IV, Chapt XXVI, Ante Nicene Fathers, Vol 8, p. 140)

"Under the assumption that a common pattern of 'myth and ritual' prevailed in the ancient Near East, it has been argued that the enthronement psalms belonged in the cultic setting of a 'throne-ascension festival,' held every New Year, when Yahweh's kingship over Israel, the nations, and the cosmos was celebrated in song, ritual, and pagent (play)."

"In the Babylonian cult, for instance, hymns of praise had an important place. Every New Year, when the cycle of the seasons returned to its beginning, the worshipers reexperienced and reactualized the victory of the powers of life over the powers of death. The creation myth of Enuma elish depicted the victory of the god Marduk over the dragon of Chaos, Tiamet.

Not only was the myth recited, but the battle was reenacted during the festival. At the climax of the celebration worshipers joined in the acclamation, 'Marduk has become king!' This is interpreted to mean that he had reascended his throne for another year." (Anderson, p. 522).

Danny Dodd: The bewitching was occurring because of a group of Christian Jewish legalists we now call the “Judizers”. They were the apostle Paul nemesis in his evangelistic work with non-Jews including the Galatians. They attempted to impose this other gospel of Jewish law keeping and traditionalism upon Gentile Christians which denied the Spirit’s power to work and God’s grace to sufficiently save. They were working to intimidate, manipulate and dominate the Galatians to cripple their spirituality and quench the Spirit, but Paul would have none of that!

The Name of the Holy Spirit OF Christ is "Jesus Christ the Righteous."  There are only Two "actors" involved and the preacher is not one of them.

Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens:
         but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord,
        Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
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.
There is only one God contrary to one wing of the Church of Christ: He is the Father and Jesus of Nazareth was made to be His only mediator between man and God. Lots of false teaching has strayed from all historic scholarship in believing that there is another person who guides them beyond the sacred pages.

Alexander Campbell and others understand that A holy spirit is OUR unholy spirit which has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ and not His "spirit."

"This is...understood by every attentive reader. The original phrase is hagiasmos pneumatos, and is found only in II. Thess. ii. 13; I. Pet. i. 2. In both places it appears to refer to the sanctification of the spirit of believers.   It is literally rendered "sanctification [or holiness] of spirit." There is no article in the original and no epithet that suggests the Holy Spirit in either passage. 

God has chosen men to salvation through (or by) holiness of spirit;
not through the holiness of his Spirit,
        but through the holiness of their spirit.

When Jesus prayed (John xvii.) for the sanctification or holiness of his disciples,
          it was through the truth: "Sanctify them through the truth;
          thy word is truth."

The belief of the truth is, therefore, by Paul associated with this holiness or sanctification of spirit.

The Jews under the Monarchy did not observe The Law of Moses: They had been abandoned to worship the starry host so that all of their religious rituals especially the loud instrumental music was a MARK of Legalism in the sense that all pagan worship was witchcraft based on loud vocal and instrumental music in the belief that one had to WORK REALLY HARD to get the god's attendition.


In Galatians 5 Paul speaks to the emasculated priests of Cybele which, like all priesthoods, were emasculated or sex-changed.

Since no one in church history believed that music had any role in the church; and none of the groups which flowed into the Church of Christ had ever used instruments, continuing to NOT use instruments cannot be called legalism.  Legalism is IMPOSING something like instruments in the belief that "they can lead you into the presence of God.

The Scribes and Pharisees were legalists: Jesus called them hypocrites. In the Ezekiel 33 version Christ named speakers, singers and instrument players.  The BONDAGE was a band of Scribes and Pharisees who CHANGED the Word of God so they could make long prayers (hymns) under pretense and fleece the widows and honest working people with the LEGALISM of a tithe or "law of giving."

Jesus and Peter call the Jews a CROOKED RACE: The purpose of baptism was to "save ourselves from this race.  Legalism was keeping the Law of Moses: neither king, kingdom, animal sacrifices or exorcism musical sounds were commanded by God says Christ in Isaiah 1 and Jeremiah 7. The Jews had a Covenant with Death well defined in Amos and Isaiah 5. Christ speaks ONLY through the prophets to repudiate the Civil-Military-Priestly complex He called Robbers and Parasites. All of the instrumental music under the law was witchcraft: Miriam as a prophetess and the Levites prophesying with instruments is called SOOTHSAYING.
The prophecy of the end--time paganism is the worship of the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Rev 17): these are the same lusted after fruits Amos warned about as speakers, singers and instrument players. All instruments and musical terms point to enchantment.

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.

Eleuther-oō ,Jesus freed us from the laded burdens (songs) which destroy the rest as well as the burden laders.  Jesus paid the temple tax and did not impose anything new. He gave us the free water of the word (Isaiah55) and freed us from those who create pleasure by speaking their own word.

Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come,
        God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Galatians 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law,
        that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit OF his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Both the Jews and Gentiles did service to those who are NOT God: that is what God abandoned Isreal to as a result of musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity under the symbol of the golden calf. LEGALISTS use the patternism of making noise during the goat burning ritual which God did NOT command as their legalism. The Jews under the Monarchy did not live according to the law.

Galatians 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God,
        ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
Galatians 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God,
        how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Galatians 4:10 Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
Galatians 4:11 I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.

Galatians 5  "Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they [are] brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are [even] the dross of silver." {Ezk 22:18}

David had these on his staff because he was abandoned to worship the starry host.

They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. Eze.13:6

Diviners are still trying to "batter down the walls" with lying divination and music:

At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort. Ezekiel 21:22

A. Based on the words Paul uses pointed to the emasculated priests of the mother goddess, Paul intends to CUT OFF the musical performers in the same way the priests were made eunuchs:

, a.ta gennētika, of eunuchs, Ph.1.89: abs., “apokekommenoseunuch, LXXDe.23.1, cf.Luc.Eun.8:—Med., make oneself a eunuch, Ep.Gal.5.12, cf. Arr.Epict.2.20.19.

This would apply to the musical fall from grace at Mount Sinai:  the worship of the Mother Goddess allowed males to "perform the role of women." David's stola was worn by the office of prostitute and the Ephod was a phallic symbol which David cast off and went naked.

Deuteronomy 23.1 non intrabit eunuchus adtritis vel amputatis testiculis et absciso veretro ecclesiam Domini
The folly of Israel was common throughout history. An emasculated priest served as the DOGS of Cybele the Mother of the Gods.  The Babylon mother of harlots in Revelation 17 used these "lusted after FRUITS" as speakers, singers and instrument players (Rev 18).  Paul called the SORCERERS who HAD deceived the whole world.
Deuteronomy 23.1He who is wounded in the stones, or has his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the assembly of Yahweh.

Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:

B. John Chrysostom understood Paul's message.

Chrysostom's Commentary on Galatians:

Galatians 5:1.-"With freedom did Christ set us free; stand fast therefore.115 ."
Ver. 12.
"I would that they which unsettle you would even cut themselves off." And he says well "that unsettle you."
"A man that is heretical after the first and second admonition refuse." (Tit. iii: 10) If they will,
let them not only be circumcised, but mutilated.
Where then are those who dare to mutilate themselves; seeing that they draw down the Apostolic curse, and accuse the workmanship of God, and take part with the Manichees? ... 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
Catullus,Carmina 63    
Notes  Cybele had early become identified with the Cretan divinity Rhea (Eve, Zoe), the Mother of the Gods, and to some extent with Demeter, the search of Cyhele for Attis being compared with that of Demeter for Persephone. The especial worship of Cybele was conducted by emasculated priests called Galli (or, as in vv. 12 and 34, with reference to their physical condition... The worship was orgiastic in the extreme, and was accompanied by the sound of such frenzy-producing instruments as the tympana, cymbala, tibiae, and cornu, and culminated in scourging, self-mutilation, syncope from excitement. and even death from hemorrhage or heart-failure
Thy timbrel, Mother Cybele, the firstings of thy rite,
And as her tender finger-tips on bull-back hollow rang
She rose a-grieving and her song to listening comrades sang.

"Up Gallae, hie together, haste for Cybele's deep grove,
Hie to the Dindymnean dame, ye flocks that love to rove;
The which affecting stranger steads as bound in exile's brunt
My sect pursuing led by me have nerved you to confront

The raging surge of salty sea and ocean's tyrant hand
As your hate of Venus' [ZOE] hest your manly forms unmann'd,
Gladden your souls, ye mistresses, with sense of error bann'd.
Drive from your spirits dull delay, together follow ye
To hold of Phrygian goddess, home of Phrygian Cybebe,
Where loud the cymbal's voice resounds with timbrel-echoes blending,
And where the Phrygian piper drones grave bass from reed a-bending,

Where toss their ivy-circled heads with might the Maenades
Where ply mid shrilly lullilooes the holiest mysteries,
Where to fly here and there be wont the she-god's vaguing train,
Thither behoves us lead the dance in quick-step hasty strain ."

The Attis or Atys story is repeated over and over.  Isis was the center of worship at Mount Sinai and Attys is the pattern of Jesus Christ used in all of the musical-emasculated religions. The Jews wanted to Initiate Jesus and take the kingdom by force: He said the men of that race were like children in the marketplace piping trying to "initiate" people into the "gay brotherhood" making them lament or sing and dance.

Birth Attis  of Phrygia was born of the Virgin Nana on December 25th. He was both the Father and the Divine Son.The Festival of Joy -- the celebration of Attis' death and rebirth.  This is the religion of the always-pagan trinity.  However, from Jacob onward (Genesis 49) people are warned NOT to follow the assembly patternism of Levii.  It would be the son of Joseph who would sit and rule on the throne of the ONE ONLY Divine Being:

Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens:
         but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord,
        Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
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

Danny Dodd: They were born of a “free woman” not a “slave woman” He proclaimed. (4:31) Christ had set them free so why would they want to “be burdened again by a yoke of slavery”? (5:1) This slavery would only lead to a life outside of God’s Spirit instead of one bearing his fruit. (5: 19-25) The opportunity to live this triumphant Spirit-filled life was the very reason that “before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.” (3:1)

Galatians 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
Galatians 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Galatians 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh;
        but he of the freewoman was by promise.
Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory:
        for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai,
        which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia,
        and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

The SLAVE children repeat the musical idolatry which caused God to abandon them at Mount Sinai.
God gave David Zion to build a tent.
But, Solomon built God a house on Moriah the center of STARY WORSHIP.
However, God does not dwell in houses built by human hands (by slave labor)
        Nor is He worshipped with the WORKS of human hands: raising, clapping, waving or picking
Christ said that God had NOT commanded any of it.

John also calls Jerusalem SODOM and the Mother of harlots
  • The present Jews were under the legalism of a GOD IMPOSED worship of the starry host.
  • Those who impose instruments use the PATTERNISM of Jerusalem and a plague stopping ceremony.
  • Christ says God had not commanded sacrifices or burnt offerings: these substituted for burnt infants just before 2 Chronicles 29 and just after.
  • Therefore, the legalism the latter day profits try to impose is exactly the PAGAN IDOLATRY of Babylon.

Danny Dodd: Legalism in that Judizing form sought to take away the freedoms the Galatians enjoyed in Christ. It still does in whatever form it morphs into now. It seeks to steal the joy and victory of salvation. It is bewitching because of the way it masquerades and presents itself. But in the wonderful book of Galatians Paul reveals it for the ugliness that it is.

A person who is saved is a Disciple (only) by baptism and "teaching what Christ commanded to be taught." A disciple goes to Bible Class. The Campbells following Christ in the wilderness taught that:

Church iis A School of Christ
Worship is reading and musing the Word.
That is exactly what Paul taught AFTER he put down all of the performing artists who by definition "make the lambs dumb before the Slaughter."
Now, attending Bible Class with no Law of Preaching, no LAW of giving and no LAW of singing silly human songs IS FREE AT LAST.

From chapter three he teaches that legalism:

Danny Dodd: Relies on Human Effort. Paul asks, “Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law?”

Paul ministered "spirit" by teaching: they received spirit by listening and obeying: Jesus said my WORDS are Spirit and life. Spirit stands opposite to the Law of Mosesor human effort. The direct command is to TEACH THAT WHICH JESUS COMMANDED TO BETAUGHT. If you do not follow the PATTERN by READING and DISCUSSING the exact text then you are relying totally on human effort. Probably NO ONE rests on Jesus Effort who gave us His Word.  Human effort is composing poems, setting them to meter, practicing, rehearsing and then performing music for the admiration of the paying audience IS HUMAN EFFORT.

He then continued, “Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?” (vs. 2-3) Legalism values merit over grace. It emphasizes human goodness (which apart from Christ doesn’t exist anyway) over God’s righteousness. In so doing it creates an impossible standard for anyone to live by- which, in turn, produces failure, guilt and judgmental spirits. Christ died to set us free from such a doomed system. Grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9) based on the righteousness of God, not on our own merit, saves us.

It's amazing that people translate the Word to suit their dogma and then expound their dogma based on their translation: The Spirit (Gospel) is received by preaching as opposed to human rituals to arouse up the flesh (Law).  The Spirit or Word of Christ (John 6:63) is RECEIVED by hearing. 

Galatians 3:2 This only would I learn of you,
        Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law,
        or by the hearing of faith?
Galatians 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit,
        are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Galatians 3:4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
Galatians 3:5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you,
        doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Is a Curse. “All who rely on observing the law are under a curse. (vs. 10) This curse is the reality that no one under a law system will ever keep that law system perfectly. If we seek salvation by merit we will fail every time and the curse will fall upon us. Instead, like Abraham, we should live by the freedom of faith. “Clearly no one is justified before God by the law because ‘The righteous will live by faith.’” (vs. 11) Why stay under the spell of a curse when in Christ we are redeemed from this curse to be “free indeed.” (John 8:36)

Galatians 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith,
        preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
Galatians 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse:
        for it is written, Cursed is every one
        that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Galatians 3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

Galatians 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:27 For (what I mean is that) as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

To claim that churches who will not permit the effeminate art of musical worship teams and instrumental music are LEGALISTIC is false. A legalist in the Greek language specificially obeys the rigid rules of performing with an instrument as opposed to the FREEDOM commanded as NARRATION in the psalms to teach the Word of God for the purpose of education. Music FORCES everyone into GOOSE CLAPPING.

Paul identifies two covenants: The only spiritual covenant was made by Christ to Abraham 430 years before thelaw of Moses: therefore justification or ceremonial righteness does not depend on circumcism and keeping the Law.  Justification is not salvation or regeneration.

Of Isaac, a Gentile:

Gen. 26:3 Sojourn in this land,
        and I will be with thee,
        and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries,
        and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
Gen. 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
Gen. 26:5 Because that Abraham
        obeyed my voice,
        and kept my charge,
        my commandments,
        my statutes,
        and my laws.
Gen. 26:6 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar: [obeyed the CONDITIONAL command]
Righteousness BEFORE, during and after the Law of Moses (a nullity) was based on FULFILLING THE will of God whether before or after Moses.

Righteousness by faith means that one does not have to become a Jew and live under law to be ceremonially qualified for baptism. 

There are several examples of being RIGHTEOUS by OBEYING the command.  As the Spirit of Christ baptism for the remission of sins was prophesied. Therefore, Jesus had to be BAPTIZED to fulfill all righteousness.
Matt. 3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
Matt. 3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
Matt. 3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now:
        for thus it
becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

In Galatians 3 Paul shows the ONLY WAY to be under the ONLY SPIRITUAL COVENANT.
Rom. 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel.
          For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

The Scripture is loaded with various forms of parallelism: the second part is FOR which mean "what I mean to say" is.   If you quote partial verses it means you intend to deceive.

Gal. 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3:27 (What I mean to say is) as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Not: We are saved BY faith "only." That PROVES that you do not have A holy spirit or A good conscience or consciousness which means a CO-perception, to be informed of. Paul told the Jews they would not be able to read or hear the Old Testament until they turned or converted to Christ.  Jesus equated converted to baptism and Luke recorded baptism to being converted.

[27] quicumque enim in Christo baptizati estis Christum induistis

Verse 25 is not a complete sentence.

WHAT?      FOR ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:26

Is a Prison. Legalism enslaves. It is a spiritual imprisonment- putting in locks and chains the empty tomb of Christ. Paul said it. “Before this faith came we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.” (vs. 23) In this prison reside anger, hatred, discord, selfish ambition, dissension, factions and other fleshly works. It creates an atmosphere of “biting and devouring each other” that can lead to self-destruction. (5:15)


-Plato Symposium 215c DEFINES LYING WONDERS Why, yes, and a far more marvellous one than the satyr. His lips indeed had power to ENTRANCE mankind by means of instruments; a thing still possible today for anyone who can PIPE his tunes: or the music of Olympus' flute belonged, I may tell you, to Marsyas his teacher. "So that if anyone, whether a fine flute-player or paltry [cheap, easy] flute-girl, can but flute his tunes, they have no equal for exciting a RAVISHMENT, and will indicate (prophesy) by the divinity that is in them who are apt recipients of the deities and their sanctifications

Jubal "handled" musical instruments to BIND people to steal their animals, put them in pens and then sell them back to the owners: it means WITHOUT AUTHORITY.

No one is free of the prison who uses the enchantment of instrumental music which is defined as enchanting:

Jesus said MY WORDS are Spirit and Life.

we become DISCIPLES and not ceremonial legalists.

This was not the Galatians calling nor is it ours. “You my brothers were called to be free.” (5:13) Free to overcome sin; free to love one another; free to live faithfully by God’s Spirit; and free to enjoy the blessings of God’s amazing grace.

Be careful not to be enslaved by the bewitching power of legalism in whatever form it takes. Recognize the tantalizing dangers behind this other gospel and avoid it. Know the truth and be free!

No one was so ignorant that they did not grasp that the ceremonial legalism using music was not evil.

I say, to produce this effect, chants appear to have been invented, which really enchant, and are designed to implant that harmony of which we speak.
And, because the mind of the child is incapable of enduring serious training,
        they are called
plays and songs, and are performed in play;
just as when men are sick and ailing in their bodies,
        their attendants give them
wholesome diet in pleasant meats and drinks,
unwholesome diet in disagreeable things,
        in order that they may learn, as they ought,
to like the one, and to dislike the other.
And similarly the true legislator will persuade, and, if he cannot persuade,
will compel the poet to express, as he ought, by fair and noble words, in his rhythms, the figures, and in his melodies, the music of temperate and brave and in every way good men.
See why all religious music is defined as witchcraft or sorcery and sorcerers are consigned to the lake of fire.

"The spirits were thought to speak in murmurings or piping sounds (Isa 8:19), which could be imitated by the medium (witch or ventriloquist)...Most spiritual and popular was the interpretation of dreams.

It also was the case that mediums intentionally would convert themselves into a semi-waking trance. In this way the suitable mediums attained to a certain kind of clarvoyance, found among various peoples.

 This approaches the condition of an ecstatically aroused pseudo-prophet.. In Greece, too, oracles were pronounced by the Phythian prophetess who by vapors and the like was aroused to a practice of the mantic art. (Int Std Bible Ency, p. 2466)

Plato Symposium: drinking wine to the strain of a flute.

Plat. Sym. [215c] Why, yes, and a far more marvellous one than the satyr. His lips indeed had power to entrance mankind by means of instruments; a thing still possible today for anyone who can pipe his tunes: for the music of Olympus' flute belonged, I may tell you, to Marsyas his teacher. So that if anyone, whether a fine flute-player or paltry flute-girl, can but flute his tunes, they have no equal for exciting a ravishment, and will indicate by the divinity that is in them who are apt recipients of the deities and their sanctifications. You differ from him in one point only—that you produce the same effect with simple prose unaided by instruments. For example, when we hear any other person—
[215d] quite an excellent orator, perhaps—pronouncing one of the usual discourses, no one, I venture to say, cares a jot; but so soon as we hear you, or your discourses in the mouth of another,—though such person be ever so poor a speaker, and whether the hearer be a woman or a man or a youngster—we are all astounded and entranced. As for myself, gentlemen, were it not that I might appear to be absolutely tipsy, I would have affirmed on oath all the strange effects I personally have felt from his words, and still feel even now. For when I hear him

    Royce Ogle says:

    Ben said, “Being under law isn’t the same thing as legasm”. In the context of the Jews before Christ I might agree. But in the context of the beleever, it is precisely the definition of legasm.
            A person who beieves he or she will merit favor with God,
            or additional favor with God by “doing”, is mistaken.
    He already loves us as much as He can.

    The only people who think that they get a wage for their performance is what Jesus called speakers, singers and instrument players. No pagan failed to believe that the louder the falsetto singing and playing instruments pleased God.  Why, for goodness sake, would Royce etal deliberately sow discord by imposing performing creatures "to lead us into the presence of God.

    Ben also said, “we are saved by grace on the one hand and that our works,
    our fe enabled by the Spirit, will be our justification (as per no small number of statements by Jesus and Paul; giving drink of water, keeping lamps filled, reaping what we sow, all giving an account of our ves, those who do the law will live, etc., etc., etc.).”

    We are justified by the faith of Jesus Christ: we are saved by the Life of Christ. No one has sins remitted without obeying in baptism. No one is added to the Church which has not been baptized.

    Again, I disagree with that premise. When we are saved by grace there is “no other hand”. We are created “for good works”. Think of those things Bro’ Ben enumerated ( giving drink of water, keeping lamps filled, reaping what we sow) not as acts we do to be justified, but rather markers that show we are already justified.

    Jesus of Nazareth personified the Word, Wisdom, Righteousness and GRACE of God. The pagan Graces or muses were the musical performers: in Revelation 18 John called them sorcerers and consigned them to the Lak of Fire. There is NO grace to cover up the smell of disloyalty to a church one is pledged to protect.

    Royce Ogle says:Two opposites can not both be true. Any view that comes against

    “Not of works lest any man should boast. (Eph 2) and “Not by works of righteousness which we have done…” (Titus 3:5) is suspect. If we are justified by good works, as we are enabled by the Holy Sirit,(Ben’s position I think..), then we are not justified by faith as the Bible consistantly teaches:

    Royce Ogle says:In Romans 5 verse one, in regard to justification, the tense of the verb is “past tense”, in regard to peace with God it is “present tense”. If a belever is waiting to be justified he is mistaken. He already has been justified.

    A justified person is one who lives right and by faith becomes "ceremonially pure" which was to refute the Jews who insisted that one had to keep the Law BEFORE one could be baptized for salvation.  No one is justified except in the PASTTENSE but justified does not mean saved, sins remitted, addedto the Church and receiving A holy spirit or A good conscience to enable being a disciple of "tht which is written."

    Someone might want to explain to me why justification is spoken of so often in the past tense? For example Romans 5:1 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” I will answer for you, it is because justification is a past event. I am now presently justified and have been justified since I put my trust in Jesus.

Rom 5:1 THEREFORE being justified by faith,
        we have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

"We" were not justified by our faith until WE had faith.  It is past tense AFTER we have faith: pistis means "to comply."

Rom 5:2
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
John 1:12
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Justification because we live right and practice justice in the world and believe. Justification does NOT mean salvation.

Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
shall be saved from wrath through him. Rom 5:9
Rom 5:10
For if, when we were enemies,
......... we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
........... much more, being reconciled,
..... we shall be saved by his life.

    Royce Ogle says:“Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” (Romans 8:30)How many did God justify? Every last one He called. In God’s mind the job is complete right up to “glorified”.

    Ben raises a legitimate question about works. The Bible is clear, we will be judged in regard to works. What is not clear, at least to some, is that judgment is not related to salvation but to rewards.

    Baptism is a work of Jesus Christ: we REQUEST that He give us A good conscience or A holy spirit by obeying in baptism. NOT obeying will cause you to be damned.

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.

A Disciple is a baptized, enlisted student of Jesus Christ: He commanded us to teach what he taught: that's CENI. A person does not get a degree in any school by RESISTING the need to become a disciple.

    Royce Ogle says: Christ either took the full measure of the wrath of God against sin on the cross, and in so doing took upon himself the full penalty for my sins (past, present, and future), or he did not completely atone for me.

That gives Him the right to save you if you obey and are baptized and the right to damn you if you are an apistos or do not obey.

1Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God:
        and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    Those passages that seem to compete with the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith only “seem” to. If you view those verses, not as rules to follow, but rather evidences of salvation, it will all make sense.

    As noted Grace hath appeared teaching us to DENY the ungodly life. If we engage in ungodly deeds the personified Grace will not save you..

    As the Lord's Supper is the showing act of the death of Jesus, baptism down through the ages is to SHOW how we are saved BY GRACE (which teaches us to convert) THROUGH Faith.  Pistis means to obey.

    As Bobby V hinted, Wright’s influence might be evidneced here but I suppose one reason Bro Overby and I are at polar opposites on this matter is that I believe in the perseverance of the Holy Spirit (eternal security) and He does not.

The NAME (singular) of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is Jesus Christ.
Jesus of Nazareth died, was resurrected, was transfigured or metamorphosed just as our bodies will when resurrected.
He went to the Father and RECEIVED that Holy Spirit state and returned at Pentecost and He (JESUS) Shed forth that which you see and hear. Jesus promised "another" Coomforter when "I" return to you: He is in a different state but He is still Jesus:
1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    Royce Ogle says: Any person who does not believe God will justify and glorify every person He calls must cling in some way to merit based on works, or the lack of them, to support loosing one’s salvation.

    God CALLS or INVITES by preaching the gospel: MANY are called but FEW are saved.  Royce sounds like a Calvinists whose view of God is pretty bad.

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.

    My final thought is this. If any man thinks he can come to the place where he no longer sins, even with the help of the Spirit, he is mistaken. And I dare say, an honest appraisal of one’s self will show that like Paul “sin is present with me”. If we are justified as we obey with the Spirit’s help as suggested, we will all go to hell. Just one sin can topple the whole theory. Precisely the reason Jesus went to the cross is that we can not ever, before we are saved or after, live good enough to measure up to God’s standard of righteousness.

    Straw man.  No one thinks they do not sin except perhaps those who deny direct commands, examples, inferences and historic agreement that musical instruments are the MARK of those who refuse to hear the Word of God.  Musical idolatry was a terminal sin at Mount Sinai: it is the mark of the Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 17) who uses lusted after fruits as speakers, singers and instrument players whom John called sorcerers and consigned them to the lake of fire. Don't boast.

Romans 1 describes the musical fall from grace at Mount Sinai: true or not, religious music has always been connected to loose women or effeminate males.  Paul said don't let the DOGS into your worship IN THE SPIRIT.
1Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers,
        nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
1Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you:

        but ye are sanctified, (received A holy spirit)
        but ye are justified  (ceremonially able to approach God)
        in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

They have been BAPTIZED:

Apolouo (g628) ap-ol-oo'-o; from 575 and 3068; to wash fully, i.e. (fig.) have remitted (reflex): - wash (away).

Ac.22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord

THEIR OWN spirit has been made HOLY.

Hagiazo (g37) hag-ee-ad'-zo; from 40; to make holy, i.e. (cer.) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify.

Ep.5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Ac.2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

God CLEANSES the human Spirt and makes THE HUMAN SPIRIT into A holy spirit.

THEIR spirit is A holy spirit and IT must not be joined with a harlot. Being joined to the Lord IS one spirit does not mean that our spirit IS the holy spirit. Rather, we have the "mind of Christ" (Philippians 2):

1 Cor 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord IS one spirit.

1 Cor 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 

If we have A holy spirit then it is REgenerated from our own sins. This means that it is OUR spirit in which God's Spirit lives BY FAITH and never in a literal sense: that would make us God Incarnated.

1 Cor 6:20 For ye are bought with a price:
............ therefore glorify God in your body,
............ and in your spirit,
............ which are Gods.


Mt 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
Because Christ INVITES many (most) to become disciples by baptism as the first act of obedience, it is logical that the elect are those who have been baptized and been disciples. 

Christ didn't invite many rhetoricians, singers or instrument players: He called them hypocrites because THAT is the only true meaning of a hypocrite.
  • However, FEW of the wise, Sophos or musical performers are even called. 
  • Jesus call the Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites:  in the Ezekiel 33 version Christ names speakers, singers and instrument players.
  • Jesus spoke to the clergy in parables "from the foundation of the World" because they had lost the right to be called.
Disciples are chosen just like others are chosen: they have been tested by fire.

That is the same MARK of the Babylon mother of harlots in Revelation 17 who uses the lusted after fruits--as in Amos--as speakers, singers and instrument players.  Jesus said the same of the Scribes and Pharisees and consigned them to the Lake of Fire. The MARK of Him driving His enemies into hell will be the wind, string and percussion instruments.  Listen to Christ in Isaiah 30.

        and they shall condemn him to death,

Mt 20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge,
        and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Aristoph. Thes. 975 Chorus

The homage of our song is also due to Here, the goddess of marriage, [975] who interests herself in every chorus and guards the approach to the nuptial couch
