Women must keep Silent in Church to Learn

Review of Skillman Church of Christ gradual use of women to rule over the flock. Paul commanded women to silence the display in singing and musical instruments because ONLY women invent religious rituals: If the women are silent then you only have the effeminate to contend with: Paul defined as dogs and wolves to be excluded from "class room" by confining it to the place of IN THE SPIRIT and not IN THE FLESH as Jesus directly commanded.

Anyone who uses Scripture without having a clue intending to deliberately sow discord will not be interested in the extensive notes: neither will the scholars who claimed to teach the teachers. However, I will add extensive notes which any one presuming to preach should know.  I will try to put the surplus notes in tables with links so you do not have to be dangerous and without Biblical authority.

If you think of church as an institute instead of a synagogue or school of the Bible you will miss the point that everyone but the reader attends as a disciple. Women aspiring to restore matriarchal Mother Goddess worship seek RULING OVER roles and are by definition not very good students or even readers of the Word.  The use of so called musical worship teams to replace Jesus Christ as the only Comforter which intends to lead to adding instruments will always mark a female "minister" or an effeminate male. According to Revelation 17-18 it also marks the removal of the lamps or candlestick.

I have decided to temporarily bypass some of the "proof texts" for women Ruling Over the Men by giving them exactly those responsibilities God assigned to the senior males (masculine gender). The literature and experiences is filled with the MOTHER GODDESS concept which causes women and their supporters to destroy the Patriarchal Jehovah with the Babylon-originated Mother of harlots (Revelation 17) who uses lusted after "fruits" (same in Amos) as rhetoricians, singers and instrument players John called SORCERERS who had deceived the whole world. This is the same Lucifer (mostly female but bysexual) who was the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden. The serpent is defined by Bible words and literature as a Musical Enchanter(ess).



Whatever interferes with preaching or reading the Word and listening to that Word is outlawed. The word specificially points to silencing all of the singing, music, theatrics and rhetoric because even in the secular world people who wanted to discuss any adult issue voted to silence all of the playing children


Paul always defined the pagan forms of "blowing winds of change" before he defined what he called "synagogue" restricted to a mature male READING the Word and everyone else in reverent SILENCE. That's what MEANS a school consisting of disciples never called "worshipers" in the ceremonial legalism sense.  Men turn up holy Palms rather than women waving unholy arms (an invitation) would bring on WRATH which is an ORGY consisting of the same outlawed musical meaning erotic practices.


June 22, 2008 (PDF): A discussion of the Elders' view on the role of women in our worship and faith culture.

Skillman: The Role of Women in the Church

June 22, 2008 

A. The Majority View

The discussion presented here represents the view of a majority of your elders. These views are not based merely on opinion, but are based on study, reading from a number of experts on both sides of the issue and prayer for God to lead us to and convict us of His will for Skillman.

God has fully expressed Himself: you MAY be listening in a echo chamber. It seems clear that the PURPOSE DRIVEN goal will be reached even if you have to do what all of the musical discorders: deliberately lie about God and to God and put a twisted vision into His mind.

NO SCHOLAR CAN DISPUTE THE WORDS OF PAUL UNDERSTOOD FOR THESE 2,000 YEARS. Your only choice is to decide to EXCISE all of Paul's writings as many of Dwight's fellow preachers have done in order to JUST PREACH JESUS and the "GOSPEL." Paul's doubtful disputations is outlawed in Romans 14 before the "synagogue" is defined in Romans 15 which EXCLUDES everything but speaking "that which is written." That outlaws any diversity which comes out of the imagination of the human mind which "is only evil continually."  Paul's outlawing SELF-pleasure defines the only resource as "that which is written" and the only educational method is to speak that word as the only way to glorify God who wrote all of the songs and sermons.

After outlawing the personal preferences in the marketplace of the sects all addicted to music Paul defined the exact inclusive and exclusive role of the ekklesia or synagogue;

Rom. 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, 
        and not to please ourselves.
Rom. 15:2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.  [education]
Rom. 15:3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written,
        The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Rom. 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
        that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Rom. 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Rom. 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Rom. 15:7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
Both doubtful disputations and SELF pleasing utterly outlaw anyone who presumes to tamper with the Word or corrupt it meaning to sell it at retail and not have a clue about the produce.
What Skillman confess!
What Paul absolutely OUTLAWS!

In addition to outlawing everything which creates mental excitement including all of the theatrics and music the word outlaws majority opinions: appease, concialiate, pleasure,
IV areskei is used impers. to express the opinion or resolution of a public body.  The dogmas of philosophers.  

Latin Placeo: it pleases, is pleasing, is agreeable: I am disposed, I like, I please, I will.

1. In scenic lang., of players or pieces presented, to please, find favor, give satisfaction:
       Dramatic poets, actors, organum a musical instrument, Scaenica A female player, an actress

II it pleases me, it seems good, right, or proper to me; it is my opinion, I am of opinion, I hold, believe, intend, purpose; it is decided, resolved, determined 

Skillman:This is not a new topic to Skillman. The Skillman elders began a serious conversation about the role of women as far back as 1998. In 1999 they expressed a desire among themselves to move forward on implementing a more studied view by inviting scholars on both sides of the issue to come to Skillman and share their study. The elders’ conclusion (reached by a different eldership and different ministry staff than we have today) took the following form almost a full year later, quoted from the meeting minutes of September 11, 2000 as follows:

Michael Armour was the preacher from 1986 until 2001. He distorts every Scripture on the instrument view.

That was then: “The elders unanimously approved an alternative / 2nd service. Women may be used in the following areas during that service: to pass communion, usher, sing solo, give testimonials, read Scripture. There are two exceptions: no public prayer and the women are not to be used as worship leader / m.c./ pulpit person”

The so-called male leadership is urgent in SILENCING the male leadership EXCEPT the role of preacher for which there is no role and no dole and no authority, the elders whose authority consists of TEACHING THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT and silencing those who REFUSE to teach the Word of God: Jesus said that Doctors of the Law TAKE AWAY the key to knowledge: there is no doctor of the law who cn read the Purpose Driven 1 Timothy 2.  Paul silenceing BOTH male and FEMALE becuase Corrupting the Word or teaching out of their own head is defined as PROSTITUTION. The purpose was that "All be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth."

The extra service to quarantine the "troublers in Zion" almost always women is the classic ploy in all of the churches which have been "infiltrated and diverted." The goal is gradualism and after the smoke clears the next step is to move it to the main thing.

These things always follow the Navigating the Winds of Change: you have an end goal but you do not reveal it fully: all of history knows the need for gradualism as in boiling a frog. The latest leap is:

But this is now: Though the majority of your elders have concluded that using women to make announcements, read scriptures, to lead prayer or serve communion is allowable

Carroll D. Osburn 

"Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved

"by small, often unnoticed acts of subversion. Numerous such incremental changes, like erosion, will eventually bring down the fortress " ( p. 32).


PREACH by READING the Word as it has been revealed.

SILENCE for everyone else in order that ALL may understand the READ TEXT. Disciples are students and not ceremonial legalists in the worship sense: why would anyone need a LAW to make them keep silent when Jesus Christ is speaking. 

Christ defined the Church in the Wilderness for holding the holy convocation: while the silver trumpets were used for signals they were not lawful for calling or holding the assembly for instruction only.

Both the Hebrew and Latin outlaw the use of music or rhetoric:

All pagans believed that their instruments were idols and the "gods" living inside made the noise: David tried to awaken his lyre so he could awaken the dawn.  Paul spoke of lifeless instruments which are also carnal weapons.

        and beckoned with the hand unto the people.
        And when there was made a great silence,
        he spake unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying,
Acts 22:2 (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them,

Can you grasp that? If God is going to teach when the elders teach that which has been taught, then EVERYONE ELSE must be SILENT in order to be "filled with the knowledge of the glory of God." Paul said speak "that which is written" as the way to glorify god and EDUCATE.

Again note that to be A Church of Christ is to be a school of Christ: Paul's only worship concept was to give heed to the Words of God in Christ.  Peter agrees that that there are two VENUES:

If you SPEAK in the assembly you had BETTER speak that which has been taught. However, if you have the TALENT of playing a guitar and singing there are many places where you can minister the other 167 hours of the week. In the Apocalyptic literature it is an unredeemable sin to pretend to MAKE MUSIC as being from God. God has ten thousands of His saints ready to go.

If any man speak,
..........let him speak as the oracles of God;
if any
man minister,
.......... let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:

that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 1Pe.4:11

There were no revealing prophets in Corinth: prophesying was speaking the Word of God. Paul silenced the pretend prophesiers who by definition would almost always be women who sang their own songs in their own "inspired" tongue or minor dialect. If people sang or spoke in Thracian in an assembly where eveyone understood Koine Paul said that they would APPEAR mad which defines the uncovered prophesying outside of the assembly in 1 Corinthians 15:5

In Romans 15 Paul commanded THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN for learning and comfort.

The MAD WOMEN in and around Corinth went into a charismatic fit and just confused things for a PROFIT.

And the spirits of the PROPHETS are subject to the PROPHETS 1 Cor. 14:32

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,
as in ALL CHURCHES of the saints. 1 Cor. 14:33

Because the UNCOVERED PROPHESIERS were women or perverted males, Paul issued a direct command:

Let your WOMEN keep SILENCE in the churches: for it is NOT PERMITTED unto them to SPEAK; but they are COMMANDED to be UNDER OBEDIENCE, as also saith the law. 1 Cor. 14:34

And if they will LEARN any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a SHAME for WOMAN to speak IN THE CHURCH. 1 Cor. 14:35

God's Law SILENCED Miriam for one example:

Miriam means:

Miryam (h4813) meer-yawm'; from 4805; rebelliously; Mirjam, the name of two Israelitesses: - Miriam.
Meriy (h4805) mer-ee'; from 4784; bitterness, i. e. (fig.) rebellion; concr. bitter, or rebellious: - bitter, rebellion, rebellious).
Marah (h4784) maw-raw'; a prim. root; to be (caus. make) bitter (or unpleasant); (fig.) to rebel (or resist; causat. to provoke): - bitter, change, be disobedient, disobey, grievously, provocation, provoke (- ing), (be) rebel (against, -lious).

As a princess, Miriam would have been a Prophetess of Hathor: the female companion of Apis the golden Calf. We have a historical record of how these women PROPHESIED by singing, chanting, dancing and playing instruments.

And they said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lord heard it. Numbers 12:2

And the Lord spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out. Numbers 12:4

And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. Numbers 12:5

And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet (male) among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. Numbers 12:6 However, of Moses

With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches (riddles); and the similitude (shape or phantom) of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? Numbers 12:8

"She was "the sister of Moses, was the eldest of that sacred family; and she first appears, probably as a young girl, watching her infant brother's cradle in the Nile, (Exodus 2:4) and suggesting her mother as a nurse. ver. 7. After the crossing of the Red Sea "Miriam the prophetess" is her acknowledged title. ch. (Exodus 15:20) The prophetic power showed itself in her under the same form as that which it assumed in the days of Samuel and David,

poetry, accompanied with music and processions. ch. (Exodus 15:1-19)

"She took the lead, with Aaron, in the complaint against Moses for his marriage with a Cushite, (Numbers 12:1,2) and for this was attacked with leprosy. This stroke and its removal, which took place at Hazeroth, form the last public event of Miriam's life. ch. (Numbers 12:1-15) She died toward the close of the wanderings at Kadesh, and was buried there. ch. (Numbers 20:1) (B.C. about 1452.) (Smith's Bible Dictionary)

This is why Paul asked whether they THOUGHT that they were speaking FOR God:

What came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? 1 Cor. 14:36

When Paul used the word AUTHENTIA to prove that there WERE no women prophesiers in Corinth and the "word could NOT have come from them."

Authent-ikos loqui make an authoritative statement Authenticus 1. that comes from the author,

There were no MALE prophets in Corinth AND therefore they were left with READING what Paul had delivered or some one else had delivered.   Many would speak minor dialects but Paul outlawed this unless they could PROVE themselves a prophet which non could.  It would be the women who connected wine or music-induced madness with "prophesying" which is to make music.

If any MAN think himself to be a PROPHETS, or spiritual,
.......... let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you
.......... are the commandments of the Lord. 1 Cor. 14:37

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 1 Cor. 14:38


Sigao Hush, keep still, keep secret. There is no absolute command for silence.

Everyone but the READER was to keep SINENCE in order to UNDERSTAND which is the function of CHURCH.

But ye have not so learned Christ; Eph 4:20

Akouo (g191) ak-oo'-o; a prim. verb; to hear (in various senses): - give (in the) audience (of), come (to the ears), (shall]) hear (-er, - ken), be noised, be reported, understand.

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? Ac.2:37

It is a Biblical and historical fact that it was only WOMEN who played instruments before the time of David! David didn't follow the Law: he led the worship of the starry host.  Therefore, the ways for the only JUMPITY people to be SILENCED is to silence that which they are prone to INTRODUCE when they gain power to "rule over you."

Hark to his melodramatic bombast: “Oh, Earth! Oh, Sun! Oh, Virtue,” and all that vaporing; his appeals to “intelligence and education, whereby we discriminate between things of good and evil report”--for that was the sort of rubbish you heard him spouting.

Then among them spoke Polites, a leader of men, [225] dearest to me of my comrades, and trustiest: “‘Friends, within someone goes to and fro before a great web, singing sweetly, so that all the floor echoes; some goddess it is, or some woman.

When they did catch sight of one another, the trumpet sounded and the Greeks raised the battle cry and rushed upon the enemy. And the Carduchians did not meet their attack, but abandoned the road and took to flight; only a few of them, however, were killed, for they were agile fellows

“Yes, indeed,” said he: “we are absolutely quiet every time the flute is played.”

Hermogenes retorted, “Is it your wish that I should converse with you to the accompaniment of a flute, the way the actor Nicostratus used to recite tetrameter verses?”

[4] “In Heaven's name, do so, Hermogenes,” urged Socrates. “For I believe that precisely as a song is more agreeable when accompanied on the flute, so your discourse would be embellished somewhat by the music, especially if you were to gesticulate and pose, like the flute-girl, to point your words.”

And unquenchable laughter arose among the blessed gods, as they saw Hephaestus puffing through the palace. [600] Thus the whole day long till the setting of the sun they feasted, nor did their heart lack anything of the equal feast, nor of the beauteous lyre, that Apollo held, nor yet of the Muses, who sang, replying one to the other with sweet voices.

And unquenchable laughter arose among the blessed gods, as they saw Hephaestus puffing through the palace. [600] Thus the whole day long till the setting of the sun they feasted, nor did their heart lack anything of the equal feast, nor of the beauteous lyre, that Apollo held, nor yet of the Muses, who sang, replying one to the other with sweet voices. But when the bright light of the sun was set, [605] they went each to his own house to take their rest, where for each one a palace had been built with cunning skill by the famedHephaestus, the limping god; and Zeus, the Olympian, lord of the lightning, went to his couch, where of old he took his rest, whenever sweet sleep came upon him. [610] There went he up and slept, and beside him lay Hera of the golden throne.

Hieros I. illed with or manifesting divine power, supernaturalII. of divine things, holy, holy war, Nomos law of sacrifice Hierodoulos A temple slave, Nethinim, Especially of temple courtesans at Corintho and elsewhere and also of men.

Strabo Geography 8.6. 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."

Strabo 11.4. and also of the temple slaves, many of whom are subject to religious frenzy and utter prophecies. And any one of those who, becoming violently possessed, wanders alone in the forests, is by the priest arrested, bound with sacred fetters, and sumptuously maintained during that year, and then led forth to the sacrifice that is performed in honor of the goddess, and, being anointed, is sacrificed along with other victims.

Nethinims Probably "Gibeonites who tricked Joshua into sparing them (cf. Josh. 9). When their ruse was discovered it was decreed (Josh. 9:27) that they serve as hewers of wood and drawers of water for the community and the altar. Ezra 8:20 mentions the Nethinim ‘whom David and his officials had set apart to attend the Levites...At Ugarit there was a class of cultic servitors called ytnm, one of whom has a name that appears in the list in Ezra 2:45-46. It is therefore possible that the Nethinim were an international guild skilled in cultic arts who attached themselves to Israel in an early period. Similar also to the Nethinim in function are the shirku, known from Neo-Babylonian documents.

Josephus knew that the Levites had destroyed Israel the first time and WERE READY to do it again:

6. Now as many of the Levites, (26) which is a tribe of ours, as were singers of hymns, persuaded the king to assemble a sanhedrim, and to give them leave to wear linen garments, as well as the priests

for they said that this would be a work worthy the times of his government, that he might have a memorial of such a novelty, as being his doing.

Nor did they fail of obtaining their desire; for the king, with the suffrages of those that came into the sanhedrim, granted the singers of hymns this privilege, that they might lay aside their former garments,

and wear such a linen one as they desired; and as a part of this tribe ministered in the temple,

he also permitted them to learn those hymns as they had besought him for.

Now all this was contrary to the laws of our country, which, whenever they have been transgressed, we have never been able to avoid the punishment of such transgressions.

Pindar, Olympian 9. [1] The resounding strain of Archilochus, the swelling thrice-repeated song of triumph, sufficed to lead Epharmostus to the hill of Cronus, in victory-procession with his dear companions. [5] But now, from the bow of the Muses who, shooting from afar, send a shower of such arrows of song as these on Zeus of the red lightning-bolt and on the sacred height of Elis, which once the Lydian hero Pelops [10] won as the very fine dowry of Hippodameia. [11] And shoot a winged sweet arrow to Pytho; for your words will not fall to the ground, short of the mark, when you trill the lyre in honor of the wrestling of the man from renowned Opus. Praise Opus and her son;

The tomb of Iolaus bears witness for him, and also Eleusis by the sea, for his splendid achievements. [100] That which is inborn is always the best; but many men strive to win glory with excellence that comes from training. Anything in which a god has no part is none the worse for being quelled in silence. For some roads [105] lead farther than others, and a single occupation will not nourish us all. The paths to skill are steep; but, while offering this prize of song, boldly shout aloud [110] that this man, by the blessing of the gods, was born with deftness of hand and litheness of limb, and with valor in his eyes; and at the banquet of Aias son of Oileus he laid his victorious garland on the altar.

[C]. A SILENCE: the dithramb metaphor of bombastic language,

Dithyrambus  (dithurambos). A hymn sung at the festivals of Dionysus to the accompaniment of a flute and a dance round the altar. (See Dionysia.)

The hymn celebrated the sufferings and actions of the god in a style corresponding to the passionate character of his worship. In the course of time it developed into a distinct kind of Greek lyric poetry.

It was in Corinth that it first received anything like a definite artistic form, and this at the hands of Arion , who was therefore credited by the ancients with its actual invention. The truth probably is that he was the first who divided the festal song of the chorus into strophe and antistrophe, and arrangement from which tragedy took its rise. 

There was a very considerable number of dithyrambic poets. The best known are Melanippides Melos (q.v.) of (about B.C. 415), who is generally held responsible for the degeneracy of the dithyramb and the excess of instrumental music;

"This cry of Zeus, the Thunder-hurler, to the child, his son, Dionysos, sounds the leitmotif of the Greek mysteries of the initiatory second birth (Second Incarnation)..The word 'Dithyrambos' itself, as an epithet of the killed and resurrected Dionysos, was understood by the Greeks to signify 'him of the double door', him who had survived the awesome miracle of the second birth." - Joseph Campbell, The Hero With a Thousand Faces

"A fourth-century BC hymn in honor of dionysus contains the invocation: 'Come to us, King Dithyramb, Bacchus, god of the holy chant.'"

Dithurambos, Dithyramb "comes to be used of a Dionysiac song which possessed some infectious quality that led his votaries to take it up as a ritual chant. Later it became the subject for competition at Dionysiac festivals, and with its formalization it lost any spontaneity it may have possessed originally." "

"At the beginning of the fifth century BC tragedy formed part of the Great Dionysia, the Spring festival of Dionysos Eluethereus. Three poets completed, each contributing three tragedies and one satyric play. The latter was performed by choruses of fifty singers in a circle, dressed as satyrs, part human, part bestial, and bearing before them huge replicas of the erect penis (i.e. church steeples or columns or asherahs), as they sang dithyrambs." - John M. Allegro, The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross

[C] B. Silence the recitive of the chorus:

Xenophon, Socrates,  Ec 8. [3] My dear, there is nothing so convenient or so good for human beings as order. Thus, a chorus is a combination of human beings; but when the members of it do as they choose, it becomes mere confusion, and there is no pleasure in watching it; but when they act and chant in an orderly fashion, then those same men at once seem worth seeing and worth hearing. [4] Again, my dear, an army in disorder is a confused mass, an easy prey to enemies, a disgusting sight to friends and utterly useless,

Homer 19: [250] rose up, and Talthybius, whose voice was like a god's, took his stand by the side of the shepherd of the people, holding a boar in his hands. And the son of Atreus drew forth with his hand the knife that ever hung beside the great sheath of his sword, and cut the firstling hairs from the boar, and lifting up his hands [255] made prayer to Zeus; and all the Argives sat thereby in silence, hearkening as was meet unto the king. And he spake in prayer, with a look up to the wide heaven: Be Zeus my witness first, highest and best of gods, and Earth and Sun, and the Erinyes, that under earth [260] take vengeance on men, whosoever hath sworn a false oath
1Tim. 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions,

Jesus promised to "appear to thee" in the future to guide him into all truth just as he had the original apostles. The word WILL is not just a suggestion. It has nothing to do with gender but is directed especially to women who had been the upstanders and upspeakers in pagan religionis. Sermon outline 101 is just NOT able to read ALL of the words. You must understand WILL, HOLY HANDS, without WRATH and without DOUBTFUL DISPUTATIONS outlawed in Romans 14 so you can SPEAK with one mind and one mouth THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN. That is not too hard?


Boulomai Hom. uses boulomai for ethelô in the case of the gods, for with them wish is will ethelô is more general, and is sts. used where boulomai might have stood. Paul was speaking FOR Jesus Christ and therefore his WILL was God's Will.

WRATH: When god pours out His wrath the word is ORGE where He sends jesters and Buffoons:

When the pagan prophetesses performed their RITES often using singing and instruments the claimed to be able to LEAD YOU into the presence of the Gods. These RITES created PANIC or the burden of "spiritual anxiety created by religious rituals" which Jesus died to SILENCE. Remember that the Greeks defined the BEAST in Revelation as PAN. His horns were musical pan pipes which tyrants used to gain their own mountain kingdom.

This is the same MENTAL EXCITEMENT which Paul outlawss as NOT Christian and NOT possible in the assembly. The mental excitement was almost always caused by music to induce MADNESS or "prophesying."

Peter outlawed private interpretation which means 'further expounding."  The Bible is the TEXT of the ekklesia or school of the Bible. It provides no cracks for professional rhetoricians (hypocrites) to perform or singers to first modify and then present their message intending to AROUSE people which is always a sexual attack and THE meaning of WRATH.
In the environment in which Christianity arose was surcharged with such phenomena (raving prophecy). In the Greek oracles messages were uttered by priests or priestesses in a state of ecstasy,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1Tim. 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel,

1Tim. 2:12 But I suffer not

        but to be in silence.

In 1 Corinthians 14 Paul asked if revelation came from them: the meaning of authentein was "to be, or claim to be the author or the originator of something."  
Did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached? 1 Corinthians 14:36
............ If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spiritually gifted, let him acknowledge that
............ what I am writing to you is the Lord's command. 1 Corinthians 14:37
............ ............ If he ignores this, he himself will be ignored. 1 Corinthians 14:38
Many converts were just out of paganism and would have acted as a "prophesier" for Apollo (Apollyon) or Dionysus as assuredly that is the meaning of Miriam and the abandoned Levitical prophesiers.

"Dionysus is the wine-god, and thus should be a pleasant fellow, a benefactor. But wine has both positive and negative aspects. It makes people drunk, causes them to behave in strange ways. The Greeks were well aware of the dual natures of wine, mirrored by the dual nature of its god.... He betrays a dual nature: being bright, joyous, and vital for life,
while also having a side that is dark, mysterious and deadly.

"The adored wife of the fallen Hector, is taken as a concubine by the authentes, who can command her domestic and sexual services. The word also occurs in a homosexual sense in a speech by Theseus, king of Athens, where love of young boys was considered a virtue rather than a vice." ( Charles Trombly, Who Said Women Can't Teach, p. 174)

"dionysus's worship is thus established by the simple means of killing the opposition. It has been suggested that every tragic hero who suffers and dies on stage at the Dionysia, the great dramatic festival at Athens (of the South?), is in fact dionysus himself, being killed."

Women conspiring to RULE OVER to claim authority for authorship of songs and music is the UNIVERSAL meaning of trying to kill off the patriarchal God.  As Lucifer is called the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden and Eve was wholly seduced like a new bride AND Cain was of that wicked one, Paul is speaking of mysteries to MARK the women who mount up to rule over.

1Tim. 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
1Tim. 2:14 And Adam was not deceived,
        but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
1Tim. 2:15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing,
        if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

This does not mean that by having children women save themselves: the authentes deliberately had children so they could offer them up on the altar of Molech worshipped in Israel and Judah. By their unsafe living they also produced handicappted children as a women SEDUCED by the new wineskin heresy can cause Fetal Alchol Syndrome.  Sobriety is the opposite of the madness Paul warned about:
4997. sophrosune, so-fros-oo´-nay; from 4998; soundness of mind, i.e. (literally) sanity or (figuratively) self-control:  soberness, sobriety 


This madness is produced when people sing, clap, move around in the "holy place" with or without instruments claiming to be WORSHIP leaders or Christ Himself.

Aeschylus, Agamemnon 140] “Although, O Lovely One, you are so gracious to the tender whelps of fierce lions, and take delight in the suckling young of every wild creature that roams the field, promise that the issue be brought to pass in accordance with these signs, portents [145] auspicious yet filled with ill.

For there abides wrath-- [155] terrible, not to be suppressed, a treacherous guardian of the home, a wrath that never forgets and that exacts vengeance for a child.”

Such utterances of doom, derived from auguries on the march, together with many blessings, did Calchas proclaim to the royal house; and in harmony with this,  Sing the song of woe, the song of woe, but may the good prevail!
Why does the silence apply to women and clearly gender-confused males in the literature?  F. LaGard Smith said that if you stopped women from speaking in tongues then speaking in tongues would cease.  The literature notes that males left to themselves would never set up a ritual of singing, clapping, playing instruments and other non-reverent behavior:

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.

Accordingly, nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

"Similar opinions may be found in the writings of Philo. On one occasion he spoke of the Jewish "Feast of Fasting," used by the Greeks for the Day of Atonement:"

"Now, many a man from the false religions, which are not ashamed of criticising what is noble, will ask: how can there be a feast without carousing and overeating, without the pleasant company of hosts and guests, without quantities of unmixed wine, without richly set tables and highly stacked provisions of everything that pertains to a banquet, without pageantry and jokes,

bantering and merry-making to the accompaniment of flutes and citharas, the sound of drums and cymbals and other effeminate and frivolous music of every king,

enkindling unbridled lusts with the help of the sense of hearing. For in and through the same [pleasures] those persons openly seek their joy, for what true joy is their they do not know.

That is why behind any move for women in rule-over roles you will find a key woman lusting for power.
