The Progressive Church of Christ

10.01.14    Read and Discuss anonymously--if you wish--Whether Doctors of the Law whom Jesus said "take away the key to knowledge" as well as those who dispense authority are involved in Simony.  

The Lilly Endownment supports Jeff Walling and the COHORT to REprogram Bible Reading Preachers

The men who lie to God and about God by finding MUSIC where there is not a single example in the Bible and up to the time of John Calvin CLAIM that they see visions (Lucado) have a "spirit" tell them to DO IT and Shelly with new SPECTACLES so that he now has a new VISION for the EMERGING church are telling you the truth.

The SPIRIT of God is His BREATH:

Spiritus
 Spirit in both Hebrew and Greek speaks of a WIND sometimes a violent blast, breathing or gentle blowing of air, a breath, breeze,
2.The breath of a god, inspiration: haec fieri non possent, nisi ea uno divino et continuato spiritu continerentur,by a divine inspiration,

The SPIRIT when PERSONIFIED who may literally be speaking to all of the PROGRESSIVES that it it time to EMERGE as they HAD once deceived the whole world:

II.B. The "spritt" of Phoebus [Abaddon, Apollon]  or Carmenae (the Muses), spirit of a loud tone, a tempest, of the tympana horrificis, runinis  exciting terror of loud thundering speech, thundererer, god of thunder, Saturn as the sickle bearer.   comedy, poetry,

you take away certain pauses and measures, and make that word which was first in order hindermost, by placing the latter [words] before those that preceded [in the verse]; you will not discern the limbs of a poet, when pulled in pieces 
The Muses and GRACES (as in Grace-Centered) were blue-eyed blond prostitute musicians preferred by the dark-skinned people. They were-are Apollon's Musical Worship Team and they know how to tell some things that are true and some things that are false. They only successful "worship ministers" are marked as Worship.Androgyny and led by the spirit of Apollon.

Heresy or Sectarian is defined by Haireô A. Act., take with the hand, grasp, seize, having taken up [the song], Od.8.500. 2. take away II. take, get into one's poweroverpower, kill, of passions,

GOD WANTS THE PROGRESSIVES TO BE GUIDED BEYOND THE SACRED PAGES: HE SAYS THAT HE HIDES FROM THE WISE (SOPHISTS: SPEAKERS FOR HIRE, SINGERS, INSTRUMENT PLAYERS] AND JESUS REFUSED TO PRAY FOR THE WORLD

In this review we will show you that the EMERGING concept is also intentional: Abaddon or Apollon EMERGES from the smoky pit of hell as king of the Muses.  The enchanting (sorcery) sounds of musical machines (for doing hard work) are ALWAYS connected with HELL or being CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

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

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

Pausanias Greece Paus. 1.2   But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus (Minstrel), on the same principle as they call Melpomenus Apollo [Abaddon, Apollyon] Musegetes (Leader of the Muses). Here there are images of Athena Paeonia (Healer), of Zeus, of Mnemosyne (Memory) and of the Muses, an Apollo, the votive offering and work of Eubulides, and Acratus, a daemon attendant upon Apollo; it is only a face of him worked into the wall.

II. Pythag. name of a number,

An Active Anti-Church of Christ assault by those who cannot possibly be ignorant of Bible and are as they confess INTENTIONAL.  The SCAM of "Unity in diversity" knows that those who have been starved by sermons most of their lives will never know that Christ gave APT elders as pastor-teachers MARKED by the fact that they EJECT the cunning craftsmen or sophists who are speakers for hire, singers, instrument players and actors.  Paul said that they WILL be cast out because they are marked as LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Anathema is any thing or person who has been dedicated or self-dedicated to ADORN the Word or the Temple of God CANNOT be redeemed and MUST be BURNT just as the Jews burnt infants to Moloch as the PATTERN for the Levite Musical Worship ministers. Yes, I know but strongly deluded people do not know tht they are delusional and jump off tall buildings to CULL the population like the flood.  The singers and instrument players are called sorcerers in Revelation 18 and the word includes being SCAPEGOATS put out front of people who KNOW in their bones that they are lying to god and about God and that is called BLASPHEMY.

Doctors of the Law, Universities and Staff the Cycle of Simony

The Progressives are intentional dupes of the Christian Church or NACC. For some reason the Disciples-Christians can never get over the fact that they fell into instrumental idolatry and published all of the hate literature against those who would not fall backward to progress back to Egypt or Babylon.

See Tim Spivey New Vintage at Pepperdine: applauding Pepperdine's New bonding with the Christian Church or NACC to "teach your youth to leave our movement" using the instrumental music MARK.

Actor Jeff Walling: Where the TENSION [DISCORD] level is zooming, as those who would call themselves part of the cutting edge, How do I be cutting edge, and new WAVE avant garde (vanguard), and progressive, without losing my job? and making everyone else in the congregation really irritated with me...I have to wonder if you're at a place in your ministry where you don't have to go to the church of Christ either.

Jeff Walling and The Christian Church Today
The Christian Church Today This past week, the North American Christian Convention, Pepperdine University, and Mike Baker, senior pastor at Eastview Christian Church in Normal, IL and 2015 NACC president, debuted the website for its "Next Gen Preacher Search." High school and college students interested in preaching are invited to submit a five-minute video of their preaching for review, feedback, and coaching. 40 submissions will be chosen as semi-finalists and the selected students will be assigned a "mentor preacher" who will work with them for six months.

Next February the semi-finalists will attend a training event with Jeff Walling, Trevor DeVage, and other leaders, and from these forty students, four will be chosen to preach at gatherings like the NACC, the Pepperdine Bible Lectureship, and the Winterfest conferences.

Because the use of instrumental noise which deranges the spirit is well documented in the Bible and recorded history beginning with clay tablets, we have only two options:

You don't need to know or care much about the Scriptures as the teaching foundation of a School of Christ.
Or, since Paul refuted "unity in diversity" and said that the cunning craftsmen or sophists as speaking for hire (a hireling) must be ejected because THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE, they may or may not know that they HAD deceived the world once (Revelation 18) and would be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

That is why not a single PROGRESSIVE back to Babylon will respond or give an answer: they don't need to because most of the people-all of the WORLD--can be fooled most of the time and Jesus refused to pray for them.

See David Young and the elders at North Boulevard Church in Murfreesboro as one of the "progressves" teaching unity in diversity by those LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. They are cunning craftsmen or Sophists from whom God hides as the Doctors of the Law involved in a massive outbreak of Simon Magnus.  They are certain that you can BUY 60,000 congregations.

Unity in Diversity REFUTES the command to EJECT those who HIDE the Word as the only TEXTBOOK.

THE PROPHESIED AND FULFILLED MUSICAL MOCKING OF JESUS TO THE FOOT OF THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

Mark 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem;
        and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests,
        and unto the scribes [hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players];
        and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

Psa. 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
Psa. 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Is.56:11

And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. Je.15:3

Keluwb (h3619) kel-oob'; from the same as 3611; a bird-trap (as furnished with a clap-stick or treadle to spring it); hence a basket (as resembling a wicker cage): - basket, cage.

As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. Je.5:27

Keleb (h3611) keh'leb; from an unused root mean. to yelp, or else to attack; a dog; hence (by euphemism) a male prostitute: - dog.
Amos 8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.

3.18.14 Things are coming together for Gog and Magog. The Kairos Church Planting group is supported by the three once-Christian colleges confessing that they are working together: they are also working with or being worked by the NACC which has lasted for a hundred years. If people lie in wait even for a decade or two to confiscate your property (the definition of heretic or sectarian) to boil the frogs then Jesus didn't SEND EVANGELISTS OUT to seek and save the LITTLE FLOCK of lost spirits whom Jesus said will be proven to be NOT OF THIS WORLD.

Homer, Odyssey 1:[1] Tell me, O Muse, of the man of many devices, who wandered full many ways after he had sacked the sacred citadel of Troy. Many were the men whose cities he saw and whose mind he learned, aye, and many the woes he suffered in his heart upon the sea

Pi.N.7.81 Pindar, Nemean Odes 7
[22] since there is a certain solemnity in his lies and winged artfulness,
        and poetic skill deceives, seducing us with stories,
        and the heart of the mass of men is blind.
Strike up the song! The Muse welds together gold and white ivory with coral, the lily she has stolen from beneath the ocean's dew. [80] But in remembrance of Zeus and in honor of Nemea, whirl a far-famed strain of song, softly.
          On this spot it is fitting to sing with a gentle voice of the king of gods.
To plough the same ground three or four times [105] 
is poverty of thought, like babbling "Corinth of Zeus" to children.

In Ephesians 4 if you have any Christ-GIFTED or APT elders their first duty is to eject the cunning craftsmen of SOPHISTS. A sophists is a self-speaker for pay, singer, instrument player, actor or STAFF. This is a DIRECT COMMAND because Paul warned that THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

  1. Jesus said that God HIDES from the Wise or Sophists: self-speakers denying the Logos or Regulative Principle.
  2. Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: in Ezekiel 33 the Spirit OF Christ names self-speakers for hire, singers, instrument players and the audience: the singing and playing was His MARK of those who told God that they had no intention of obeying His Word or Regulative Principle.
  3. In Isaiah 30 the Spirit OF Christ and Jesus in Revelation said that the MARKS of God driving His enemies into "Hell" or the lake of fire would be craftsmen (staff), singers (muses) and instrument players.
  4. Jesus said that the Kingdom (Church of Christ) does not come with observation: that means "religious observations" or services which involves works or the EXPENDITURE of energy or money in the name of Jesus. such works or actions are defined by Paul as Lying Wonders which includes rhetoricians, singers, instrument players or STAFF claiming to be working for God. This happens, says Paul, when people reject the Word (blaspheme) so that God sends them strong delusions.
From the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden to the same sorcerers who HAD deceived the whole world working for the Babylon Mother of Harlots, the GODLY people OF FAITH are warned against that CROOKED RACE who are OF the World and Jesus said He does not pray for them.  If all of the evidence proves that
THEY LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Then as Paul said that the Corinthians LOVED TO BE DECEIVED AND FLEECED, if you violate the command of Jesus to NOT GO OUT then you are proven to be OF THE WORLD RACE and Jesus in Matthew 13 does not speak to you.

Wikipedia: Legalism, in Christian theology, is a usually pejorative term referring to an over-emphasis on discipline of conduct, or legal ideas, usually implying an allegation of misguided rigour, pride, superficiality, the neglect of mercy, and ignorance of the grace of God or emphasizing the letter of law at the expense of the spirit. They note that the Bible term for legalism is NOMOS in Galatians 2.

Legalists in churches of Christ are most often defined as those who refuse to use choirs, solos, musical instruments or anything in religious observations not commanded by God, not exampled with approval or something which can be inferred. For instance when Paul commanded that his letters be read in all of the churches we can infer that he did not want them rearranged and set to musicReading or SPEAKING is the actual command in Romans 15; Ephesians 5, Colossians and all of the mentions of an assembly.

Rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing (the music word) was and is regulated by the STRICTEST laws of learning, rehearsing or performing their cunning craft.

As a fence around the Sabbath or Pauo rest, the direct command for the only reason to assemble is to PREACH the WORD by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine.  ANY trained or paid PERFORMERS are called legalists. Furthermore, the Greeks would call them PROSTITUTES because they sell their body and skill: Paul called it CORRUPTING THE WORD.

2 Cor 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

Kapeleuo (g2585) kap-ale-yoo'-o; from kapelos , (a huckster); to retail, i.e. (by impl.) to adulterate (fig.): - corrupt

kapêl-euô ,A. to be a retail-dealer, drive a petty trade... kapêleu' drive a trade, chaffer with your vegetable food Hdt.1.155

II. c. acc., sell by retail, mathêmata sell learning by retail, hawk it abouttraffic in grants of citizenship [membership?], prostitutesplaying tricks with life

Hdt.1.155 Heredotus: Cyrus told how to take the FIGHT out of the enemy: [4] But pardon the Lydians, and give them this command so that they not revolt or pose a danger to you: send and forbid them to possess weapons of war,
............and order them to wear tunics under their cloaks
........... and knee-boots on their feet,
........... and to teach their sons lyre-playing [kitharizein]
........... and song [psallein] and dance
............and shop-keeping [huckstering].
........... And quickly, O king,
........... you shall see them become women instead of men,
........... so that you need not fear them, that they might revolt."

Paul uses the word NOMOS to define the Law of Moses which was added because of transgression and had no spiritual saving value:

Gal 2:16 Knowing that a man is
        not justified by the WORKS of THE LAW
        but by THE FAITH of Jesus Christ,
        even we have believed in Jesus Christ,
        that we might be justified by the faith OF Christ,
        and not by the WORKS of the law:
        for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

WORKS are always something you do: Ergs from ergon is the units used to measure expending energy.  Doing work most often uses a machine or tool: the tool of doing work or making war is the parallel word ORGANON

THE SPIRITUS OF APOLLO, ABADDON, APOLLYON

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

In it is the house of Pulytion [Paul cast out the Pythian spirit], at which it is said that a mystic rite was performed by the most notable Athenians, parodying the Eleusinian mysteries.

But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus (Minstrel), on the same principle as they call Apollo Musegetes (Leader of the Muses). Here there are images of Athena Paeonia (Healer), of Zeus, of Mnemosyne (Memory) and of the Muses, an Apollo, the votive offering and work of Eubulides, and Acratus, a daemon attendant upon Apollo; it is only a face of him worked into the wall.

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

As the leader of the Muses (Apollon Musegetes) and director of their choir, Apollo functioned as the patron god of music and poetry. Hermes created the lyre for him, and the instrument became a common attribute of Apollo. Hymns sung to Apollo were called paeans.
Psallo points to Apollyon who was also the father of homosexual worship.

PROPHESIED "BACK TO BABYLON"


When you hear the SOUNDS-LIKE harps and other panic-generating sounds such as the bow over New Zion, there is another angel sent to the LIVING saying PREACH the Gospel because the SOUNDS silencing the Word of Christ in the Prophets and apostles it is a SOUND OF SOON JUDGMENT.

Revelation 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

Those who SEE through the rhetoricians, singers or instrument players cannot be Christians:

Aristot. Poet. 1449b Tragedy is, then, a representation of an action6 that is heroic and complete and of a certain magnitude—by means of language enriched with all kinds of ornament, each used separately in the different parts of the play: it represents men in action and does not use narrative, and through pity and fear it effects relief to these and similar emotions.7 By "language enriched" I mean that which has rhythm and tune, i.e., song, and by "the kinds separately" I mean that some effects are produced by verse alone and some again by song. Since the representation is performed by living persons, it follows at once that one essential part of a tragedy is the spectacular effect, and, besides that, song-making and diction.

Pind. O. 6 35 If someone were an Olympic victor, [5] and a guardian of the prophetic altar of Zeus at Pisa, and a fellow-founder of renowned Syracuse, what hymn of praise would that man fail to win, by finding fellow-citizens ungrudging in delightful song?...where Evadne was raised, and first touched the sweets of Aphrodite beneath Apollo's embrace.
The Spirit of Christ called Lucifer "the singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.

3.03.14 c. BC 4000 our Sun wobble pointed away from the galactic plane and it was still outside of the Dark Riff which prophesied an increase in  a WORLD SHAKING. While this is happening literally, the record of Moses AFTER the fall into instrumental idolatry at Mount Sinai spoke of a recovery after "In the beginning the Eloyhim Cast Down the heavens and earth." Christ in Isaiah 45 said that Jehovah as the only TRUE Elohim did NOT make the earth Oppressive and Ignorant: history records that as happening with the Sumerians and Babylonians. That was when tyrants used music and other means of "sorcery" to take people captive. Their purpose was to make them Slaves of the Watch Towers of Babylon.  That was the origin of the seventh-day worship of the "gods" agents including priests, musicians, cooks, sorcerers and prostitutes. That was also the source of the TITHE owed to the Preachers, singers, instrument players, "ministry" leaders and others thinking they have the right to govern all of your time and money.

Christ as the Water, Rock, Spirit Pillar ordained the Qahal, Ekklesia, Synagogue or Church of Christ in the wilderness to QUARANTINE the godly people from the Jacob-Cursed and God Abandoned tribe of Levi as priests, singers and instrument players called SORCERERS.

Isarel progressed BACK TO BABYLON because of instrumental idolatry of the trinity at Mount Sinai.
The Progressives have progressed BACK TO BABYLON for captivity and death.
And, logically, they love to boast because they know, like the Enoch story, they have fallen and can never get up.

The music in the holy place was the SIGN that God "had been there and would not pass by again" (Amos 8)

Like the Cockatrice who bites his tails as a prophecy of a cyclic return of the stars, they really ARE PROGRESSING toward the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Rev 17).  She uses lusted after FRUITS and that's why people flee from invaded and taken-captive churches as speakers, singers, instrument players and the piping sounds of the MILLSTONE as the way to identify the local grinder-prostitute. The brides and bridegrooms perform the Heiros Gamos or Sacred Sex: Carol Wimber alerts you to the New Style Praise Singers (and wineskinners) hired to INDUCE a Sexual-Like Climax with the Spirit JUST BEFORE the Last act of Giving of Substance. You always hire the prostitutes: Paul said that corrupting the word is selling learning at retain and the same word means PROSTITUTES.

PREDESTINATED FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD BY HEREDOTUS 1

Cyrus was told how to NEUTER captives to keep them under control. Power grabbing preachers who want to be MASTERS (Authoratative Teachers) have KEEPING THEM UNDER CONTROL is absolutely necessary less they grasp that Jesus died to pry the burden laders off our backs: the Laded Burdens are types of repeating songs which perform the act of WITCHCRAFT with a boiling pot of frog yes.

Grant, then, forgiveness to the Lydians, and to make sure of their never rebelling against thee, or alarming thee more,
send and forbid them to keep any weapons of war,
         command them
to wear tunics under their cloaks,
         and to put buskins upon their legs,

         and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein),
         and
singing (psallein),
         and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). [Corrupting the Word]

So wilt thou soon see them become WOMEN instead of men,
and there will be no more fear of their revolting from thee."

Any kind of performing music when Jesus told us to SPEAK that which is written INTENDS to bring glory and more "Authority" to THE Alpah Malel.

Croesus thought the Lydians would even so be better off than if they were sold for slaves, and therefore gave the above advice to Cyrus, knowing that, unless he brought forward some notable suggestion, he would not be able to persuade him to alter his mind. He was likewise afraid lest,after escaping the danger which now pressed, the Lydians at some future time might revolt from the Persians and so bring themselves to ruin.

When you plan to sow discord and claim that instrumental noise is a petty issue you know that is not true else it would never be imposed by a long effort to subvert your supporters.  From ancient tribalism to the Mormon church history is aware that you cease to function as a body when you grow beyond 150 members: the Mormons split at about 250 with the new independent congregation financed.  According to the Bible, the elders are the vocational Pastor-Teachers. A Church of Christ also has deacons who are THE vocational ministers.  Nothing that requires STAFF is built by Christ and will not be A School of Christ.

Moses was told how to organize the masses of people into sub-groups as small as ten families: at the time of Jesus hundreds of these small groups existed in and around Jerusalem.  The PATTERN was and IS:

INCLUSIVE: Rest (from ministers of god), Read and Rehearse the Word of God.  God in Christ has NO assemblies with a host of STAFF always called and known as PARASITES.
EXCLUSIVE: of Vocal or instrument rejoicing or rhetoric.

A Christian is a Disciple of Christ
A Disciple is a Student of Christ
A Student is washed with water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ.
A holy spirit or A good conscience is required to read BLACK text on BROWN paper.  Required says Paul in 2 Corinthians 3 will let you know that THE LORD IS THE SPIRIT and where the SPIRIT OF the Lord (the Word John 6:63) is present you can:

        Paul commanded Timothy to WORK so that he could

"The word that is employed for this "anaginosko, anagnosis) is the technical term for the cultic reading aloud of the Old Testament in the synagogue. By applying this terminology to the reading of his own epistles he not only ascribes the same authority to the apostolic word as to the Old Testament writings... He also combines a quotation from the Old Testament with a word of Jesus and introduces the whole with the familiar formula: 'for the Scripture says.'" (Ridderbos, Hermon, Paul, P. 483 an Outline of His Theo., Eerdmans)

'Even if Balak gave me his palace filled with silver and gold,
        I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad,

        and unto the doctrine; continue in them:
        for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

A Student will never ask the Professor if he shouldn't  hire a Praise Team as backup to his lectures.
A Student is a RECEIVER ONLY and does not say: "The law of gravity does NOT say that thou shalt not jump off tall buildings."
If you need to Progress BEYOND the LOGOS or Regulative principle which EXCLUDES everything beyond:
        --Speaking to Yourselves with "that which is written for our learning" or Scripture for Comfort.
        --ODEing and PSALLO in the heart (a Place) or Keep Silent 1 Corinthians 14
        --Because SPEAK is the opposiite of ODE
                       And ODE is the opposite of SPEAK
           Because ODE means enchantment and Sorcery
           Because PSALLO points to shooting literal arrows and shooting love arrows into your male friend
           Because Abaddon or Apollon is the LEADER of the MUSES
           Because the Muses and Graces were dirty adulteresses and real SHEPHERDESSES
           Because the Latin Spiritus (beyond WORD) is the spirit of Apollo
           Because Apollo was known to be the god of the Last Earth Age

    MANY (most) are called or invited but FEW (a tiny Little Flock) is chosen because Jesus came to CALL OUT the small number of Lost Spirits (pilgrims and soujourners on the earth). Jesus doesn't even pray for those OF THE WORLD because they are natural born and not capable, like the Viper Race, of being washed with water. Therefore, they will be threshed by the WIND (Spirit, Breathed) and gathered into a heap. The signs and sounds of God driving His enemies into "hell" or the "lake of fire" will be wind, string and percussion instruments: Christ says that Lucifer the singing and harp-playing prostitute brought these instruments into the garden of Eden.

In Ephesians 4 if you have APT elders they are commanded to eject the cunning craftsmen or SOPHISTS. Sophists are self-speakers for hire, singers, instrument players or actors.  Paul wants the ejected like the DOGS and concision in Philippians 3 because the LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. That is their Purpose Driven Purpose.  That's why KAIROS or the Devil has come down to you because he knows that his time is SHORT.

  1. If you spread false information about the historic Church of Christ which obeyed the direct command NOT to engage in "vocal or instrumental rejoicing or rhetoric" on the REST (never called worship) DAY.
  2. Then if Bible readers object to your "stealing the church houses of widows."
  3. And you say that those who object are hindering your saving the world and sowing discord
  4. Then, we know that this is not an Ekklesia, Syngagogue defined by the Spirit and the Campbells as A School of the Word; and Worship is Reading and musing the Word of God (only).
  5. Those OF TRUTH speak only the LOGOS or Regulative principle which also excludes rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing. Christ said that those who do NOT speak the Word prove that THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.
  6. The purpose is to teach people THE WORD and they are then "washed with water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ." A Church of Christ if the Body of Christ is edified or educated spiritually by the Prophets and Apostles.
  7. If you dip all of the world into a human institution not "planted" by God, then you make them four-fold sons of the Devil.  Jesus said that the Sons of the Devil "speak on their own." That is the MARK.
  8. An institution built on human works and workers not related to Teaching the Word "as it has been taught" cannot be a Christian assembly.
  9. Christ defining His REST both inclusively and exclusively commanded that a Disciple NOT spend their food money for the Free Water of the Word.  In Isaiah 58 Christ defined such a word as EXCLUSIVE of seeking your own pleasure (rhetoric, singing, playing, clapping, hugging or kissing) and NOT even to Speak your own Words.  If Christ paid it ALL Jesus left us a MARK by never commanding any religious parasitic roles and guaranteed it for the faithful by not commanded a Law of Giving of Tithes or offerings.
  10. That deprives the School of the Word of FUNDING and therefore excludes "seeing godliness as a means of financial gain" which means to exclude any professional.



1.16.14
Jay Guin's List of Progressive Church of Christ Preachers or Teachers Blogs or Groups
That Appears to be a fairly Tiny NEW SECTARIAN GROUP.  The only LEGALISM word in the Greek World had to with the rules and regulations for RHETORIC (a Hypocrite says Jesus) or INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMERS who work harder than even sacrificing a goat with Levites performing EXORCISM SORCERY.

See Jay Guin the Progressive Foundation who refused to consider the text and endorsed Dancing in Worship. We told him that was part of the final SHAKING which the Church would endure to SHAKE OUT anything made by human hands, composed by human hands or presented by raising arms, waving, clapping, dancing and other marks of IRREVERENCE.

The WORD or LOGOS of God delivered by the Prophets and Jesus is called the Regulative Principle: it EXCLUDES self speaking on your own (Marks the sons of the Devil says Jesus), singing, playing instruments, acting or dancing.

Christ in Isaiah 8 says that those who do NOT speak that record HAVE NO LIGHT IN THEM.
Jesus commanded that anyone SENT OUT teach that which He had taught: Peter makes that the prophecies by the Spirit OF Christ, the prophecies made more certain by Jesus and left for our memory by eye-- and ear-- witnesses. 2 Peter 1 says that this Prophets and Apostles as the only BUILDING or education material for the Church is not subject to private interpretation meaning further expounding.

From the Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness, the Spirit OF Christ in the prophets (only), exampled by Jesus, commanded by Jesus with the ekklesia-synagogue words, practiced and commanded by Paul and taught and practiced by all historic scholars including the Campbells:

Church is A School of the Word
Worship is READING and MUSING the Word.
The command is to SPEAK that Word one to another,
BUT, Ode and Psallo are to be IN the heart meaning SILENT as in 1 Corinthians 14.

Contrary to what Paul would do:
1Corinthians 14:26 How is it then, brethren? when YE come together [Synagogue],
        everyone of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation.
        Let all things be done unto edifying.


Paul did not say let all of these acts be done but only that which edified meaning EDUCATED.  In the "coming together" or synagogue everyone was silent while the reader PREACHED the Word (only) by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine. There was NO PRAISE SERVICE in the Synagogue by simple reverence and by command of Christ in the wilderness.

Musical instruments cannot EDUCATE:

Habakkuk 2:18 What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image,
        and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?
Habakkuk 2:19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone,
        Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver,
        and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.
Habakkuk 2:20 But the LORD is in his holy temple:
        let all the earth keep silence before him.

David, abandoned to worship the starry host including the Dawn, mother of Lucifer

Psalms 57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
Psalms 108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

However, this is clearly the pagan AROUSAL music calling the gods to wake up and come into their temple.
We even have a mention at a later date of a similar custom in connection with the cult in Jerusalem, where certain Levites, called me'oreim, 'arousers," sang every morning this verse from Ps 44: 'Awake, Lord, awake! Do not abandon us for ever." The Talmud tells us that Johy Hyrcanus suppressed the practice because it recalled too readily a pagan custom.

A similar practice is attested in connection with the cult of Herakles-Melkart. According to Menander, as he is quoted by Josephus, the king Hiram, who was a contemporary of Solomon, rebuilt the temples of Tyre and, 'he was the first to celebrate the awakening of Heracles in the month of Peritius." (de Vaux, p. 247)

In an inscription from Cyprus, in one from Rhodes and in several from around the district of Carthage, there are references to important personages who bear the title Mqm"lm which we can translate as 'arouser of the god." (de Vaux, p. 247).

No one can interpret lifeless instruments which Paul equated to lifeless instruments.

1Corinthians 14:28 But if there be no interpreter,
        let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.
1Corinthians 14:34 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.
1Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.


The women just out of paganism would be the exclusive singers, players or speaking in gibberish or a foreign language so she could charge for the priest to translated.  Paul wants EVERYONE to come before God in silence because the Purpose Driven Purpose is so that "everyone might be saved and come to a knowledge of the Truth" and THEY WORD IS TRUTH.
It is clear that you do not know the meaning of a Disciple of Christ then you cannot know the meaning of a Christian. If you cannot grasp that Jesus DEFINED the inclusive and exclusive pattern for His REST then you will stumble ahead and IMPOSE the Laded Burden and Burden Laders which is defined as Jesus defined the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites and in the Ezekiel 33 version they are mercinary self-speakers who can entertain, singers of lovely songs and players on musical instruments. Christ says that this MARKS hypocrites who have no intention of obeying God's WORD the Regulative Principle defined over and over in Scripture.

The serpent (Lucifer, Zoe, Abaddon) began as the Singing and Harp-Playing Prostitute according to the Spirit OF (a preposition) Christ. After the fall  from grace at Mount Sinai God turned them over to worship the starry host. Paul in Romans 1 defines the absolute BINDING of a Gender-Variant Priesthood which is the result and cause of a breakdown of morality: that is because the Serpent's Seed BITE (take a tax) and increase the TAKE by using all of the:

Hypocritic arts and crafts: Jesus called them Scribes and Pharisees and in Ezekiel 33 identifies mercinaty-entertanment preachers, singers and instrument players. The Love songs imply a gender-directed attempt as Plato and the Vineyard lady claimed to induce "a sexual-like climax with the spirit just before the last act of giving of money.

Jesus said that God HIDES from the wise or SOPHIST: a Sophist could be identified in church Sunday by giving more attention to his own gibberish than the Word of God. The WORD is the LOGOS is the Regulative Principle ordained by God. A sophist sings, plays instruments, acts, dances, claps hands or otherwise "making the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

Everyone laughs about the sudden RISE of the Effeminate Worship Leader. Like all musicians they need to be Androgynous to attract everyone to engage in that sexual-like act proven when the bodies begin to move and gyrate.

There is no recorded Bible or History which does not implicate effeminate men: "drunk, perverted or just mocking." They musically mocked Jesus to the Cross. Christ warned about Him being ENCOMPASSED by a pack of DOGS.  Around all pagan worship centers the DOGS were Catamites and PARASITES.

Genesis 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man,
        saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
        thou shalt not eat of it:
        for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


God said nothing about fruit:

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
         And he said unto the woman,
        Yea, hath God said, Ye shall NOT eat of every tree of the garden?


Satan said nothing about fruit:

If you don't speak the LOGOS or Regulative Principle there is no LIGHT in you. Isaiah 8

Genesis 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent,
        We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

"Kenite" is a rendition of Hebrew קֵינִי Qeyniy. According to Gesenius, the name is derived from the name Cain (קַיִן Qayin).[5] According to A. H. Sayce, the name `Kenite', Qéní, is identical an Aramaic word meaning `a smith', which in its turn is a cognate of Hebrew Quayin, with the meaning `a lance'.[6]"

H7014 qayin kah'-yin The same as H7013 (with a play upon the affinity to H7069 ); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe:--Cain, Kenite (-s).

H7013 qayin kah'-yin From H6969 in the original sense of fixity; a lance (as striking fast): spear.

H6969 qun koon A primitive root; to strike a musical note, that is, chant or wail (at a funeral): lament, mourning woman.

Revised 9.05.13
Progressing FROM What and TO What!  A Church of Christ is A School of Christ and as Kingdom it does not come with observation meaning Worship Services.  A Progressive Church of Christ is built upon the foundation of the Jacob-Cursed and God-abandoned Levites: They were NOT commanded to be musical worship leaders but Soothsayers-Sorcerers-Exorcists using instrumental sounds which God calls NOISE.  This now commanded progressive pattern is, like the Levites, progressing back to Babylon for captivity and death.  None of the WINGS can read BLACK TEXT on BROWN PAPER because of Strong Delusions: strong delusions imposes Lying Wonders which are the hypocritic art and crafts of Speakers, singers and instrument players.  This violates the PATTERN from the wilderness onward to the Campbells to MARK FOR AVOIDANCE pagan worship rituals by for-hire performers exposing a gender conflicting agenda.  This is just today's UNIVERSAL PATTERN for Disciples of Christ who can grasp that a Disciple is a Student: history notes that the SOUNDS of wind, string and percussion were introduced by what Christ calls "the Singing and Harp-Playing prostitute in the garden of Eden." 

The PROGRESSIVES mock the Regulative Principle which gives God in Christ the right to define the future Church free of Judaism both inclusively and exclusively.  The LOGOS is the Regulative Principle.  Jesus Christ became the Visible-Audible LOGOS or Regulative Principle. Therefore, to  be ANTI-Logos is to be ANTI-Christ.  The Purpose of the Anti-Regulative principle is to give them equal authority with God to speak where they think He has been silent. Unfortunately, they speak out of their own mind and fail to be able to read.

2. or whether we ought rather to think that music tends in some degree to virtue (music being capable of producing a certain quality of character

        music accustoming men to be able to rejoice rightly);
3. or that it contributes something to intellectual entertainment and culture (for this must be set down as a third alternative among those mentioned).
        Now it is not difficult to see that one must not make amusement the object of the education of the young;
        for amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.
Christ ordained the Qahal, synagogue, Ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness.  Jesus spoke to HIDE the truth from the MERCHANT class so they will not grasp this:

The PROGRESSIVES are under the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17). She uses "lusted after fruits" which are the same as Amos 8.  There is not history which does not prove that men who sing and play and wish to expose themselves as the "center' are Drunk, Perverted or Just having fun.

The speakers, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 are called SORCERERS which is the same word defining the Babylon Mother Sorcerers.  This defines the PERFORMERS as Scape Goats or Capella which are being SACRIFICED as the Lead Agents into the Lake of Fire. Christ defined the Prototype Prophecy in Isaiah 30.

The FIRST ADVENT Attack was by Judas who was prophesied to perform the same "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" OUTLAWED for The Church of Christ in the Wilderness.  See Psalm 41 and the Dead Sea agreement

No one was every so ignorant even when writing on Clay Tablets that they did not  know that people using instrumental noises KNTENDED to Hurt you or Steal your property.

The Greek Scholars agreed with Paul about corrupting the Word that anyone selling their own opinions, talents or charisma were called PROSTITUES.  Paul called it selling learning at retail.

Cyrus was told how to NEUTER captives to keep them under control. Power grabbing preachers who want to be MASTERS (Authoratative Teachers) have KEEPING THEM UNDER CONTROL is absolutely necessary less they grasp that Jesus died to pry the burden laders off our backs: the Laded Burdens are types of repeating songs which perform the act of WITCHCRAFT with a boiling pot of frog yes.

singing (psallein),

Croesus thought the Lydians would even so be better off than if they were sold for slaves, and therefore gave the above advice to Cyrus, knowing that, unless he brought forward some notable suggestion, he would not be able to persuade him to alter his mind. He was likewise afraid lest,after escaping the danger which now pressed, the Lydians at some future time might revolt from the Persians and so bring themselves to ruin.

While the Progressive word is common perhaps Jay Guin has been most instrumental in trying to SECTARIAN OUT those he considers to have progressed beyond the sacred page.  In the old sacrificial system--used as patternism--in the Greek language the instrument players made noise to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter: he was called the PARASITE. The HERETIC was the slaughter priest who lifted them up to cut their throats.  That is why Paul outlawed the "preferences" of the Diet sects in Romans 14 and then in Romans 15 outlawed SELF-pleasure or "creating mental excitement." That would make using one mind and one mouth to teach "that which is written for our learning impossible." It would also prevent praise or glory due to God by refusing to use HIS Words in the Prophets and Apostles.

Revised 8.23.13 The Members of The Progressive Church of Christ are ANTI-Logos and therefore ANTI-CHRISTIAN. The RACA word most often used is to claim that hateful Churches of Christ invented the Regulative Principle.  You may click to see that the LOGOS concept by which God created the world IS the Regulative Principle. Judas didn''t know that God was goint to let Satan be the spirit that filled Judas until Jesus fed him the SOP: Sop has the same root meaning as PSALLO which was flashed in about 1878.

ALL POST-BIBLICAL ILLITERATE SCHOLARS TAUGHT COMMANDS, EXAMPLES AND NECESSARY INFERENCLES.  Why would a disciple work so hard to do a legalistic end run around the Word or even lie about it if they had ever been Washed with Water into the Word or into the School (only) of Christ (only) where the command is for vocational elders to PREACH the Word by READING the Word for comfort and doctrine?

From the serpent as Musical Enchanter(ess) or the Singing and harp-playing prostitute in the garden of Eden to the Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 17) who uses "lusted after fruits" (same as in Amos 8) as speakers, singers and instrument players, those who IMPOSE instruments into the well-defined assembly of Christ, they have been called SORCERERS and will be cast alive into the lake of fire.

MUSICAL IMPOSERS ARE PURPOSE DRIVEN BY AN ALIEN SPIRIT. Because questioning the Word asks God to send strong delusions it MAY BE that instrumental discorders are never able to repent.


"But we have already spoken of spectacles: there remains one thing which is to be overcome by us,
        that we be not captivated by those things which penetrate to the innermost perception. (emotions only)
        For all those things which are unconnected with words, (just speaking in tongues)
        that is, pleasant sounds of the air and of strings,
        may be easily disregarded, because they do not adhere to us, and cannot be written...
Is God, therefore, the contriver both of the mind, and of the voice, and of the tongues, unable to speak eloquently? Yea, rather, with the greatest foresight,
        He wished those things which are divine to be without adornment,
        that all might understand the things which He Himself spoke to all." 

Therefore God made all things to supply a contest between two things.
Those enticements of pleasures, then, are the instruments of that whose only business it is to subdue virtue, and to shut out justice from men. With these soothing influences and enjoyments it captivates their souls;
for it knows that pleasure is the contriver of death. (Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, Ante-Nicene Fathers, VII, p. 188).
THE ANCIENTS BEFORE THE POST-LITERATE ERA OF THEOLOGIANS KNEW THE MEANING OF MUSIC

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

The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm.
 If it is metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial, and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention, since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence..

According to Philo, the gods of the pagans exploit this weakness of men. For the sake of a better effect, and with the intention of more easily cheating their devotes, that they have set their lies to melodies, rhythms and meters.." Click for more.

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

Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1175b.1

But things that are akin to things of different kinds must themselves differ in kind.
        [3] A still clearer proof may be drawn
        from the hindrance that activities
        receive from the pleasure derived from other activities.

For instance, persons fond of the flute
        cannot give their attention to a philosophical discussion [The LOGOS or Regulative Principle]
        when they overhear someone playing the flute,
        because they enjoy music more than the activity in which they are engaged;
                therefore the pleasure afforded by the music of the flute
                impairs the activity of study.

[4] The same thing occurs in other cases when a man tries to do two things at once; the pleasanter activity drives out the other, the more so if it is much more pleasant, until the other activity ceases altogether.

Hence, when we enjoy something very much, we can hardly do anything else; and when we find a thing only mildly agreeable, we turn to some other occupation; for instance, people who eat sweets at the theater do so especially when the acting is bad.

[ 5] And since our activities [of the flute] are sharpened, prolonged and improved by their own pleasure, and impaired by the pleasures of other activities, it is clear that pleasures differ widely from each other. In fact alien pleasures have almost the same effect on the activities as their own pains; since, when an activity causes pain, this pain destroys it, for instance, if a person finds writing or doing sums unpleasant and irksome; for he stops writing or doing sums, because the activity is painful.

Aristotle on Politics 8
2. or whether we ought rather to think that music tends in some degree to virtue (music being capable of producing a certain quality of character
        just as gymnastics are capable of producing a certain quality of body,
        music accustoming men to be able to rejoice rightly);
3. or that it contributes something to intellectual entertainment and culture (for this must be set down as a third alternative among those mentioned).
        Now it is not difficult to see that one must not make amusement the object of the education of the young;
        for amusement does not go with learning--learning is a painful process.
 
Commands, Examples and Necessary Inferences (CENI) became a issue when the Disciples of Christ imposed musical instruments insisting that they needed no authority even when it intended to sow massive discord. The CENI is usually used to justify or not those ACTS (legalism) which will permit the Evangelist to STAY instead of GO and in recorded history to try to rescue a failing idolatry of Buildings and Grounds and Staff.

"Nay, rather, to speak out more truly, the augurs, the dream interpreters, the soothsayers, the prophets, and the priestlings, ever vain, have devised these fables;

for they, fearing that their own arts be brought to nought,
and that they may
extort but scanty contributions from the devotees, now few and infrequent,
whenever they have
found you to be willing
       
that their craft should come into disrepute,
        cry aloud, the Gods are neglected,
        and in the temples there is now a very thin attendance.

For ceremonies are exposed to derision,
        and the time-honoured rites of institutions once sacred
        have sunk before the superstitions of new religions.

And men--a senseless race--being unable, from their inborn blindness, to see even that which is placed in open light,

dare to assert in their frenzy what you in your sane mind do not blush to believes." (Arnobius, Against the Heathen, Ante-Nicene Fathers, VI, p. 418).

People who DENY God's Right to regulate the Assembly PRETEND that "a" spirit guided them into some new ACT almost always imposing the use of musical instruments to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

Arnobius, Heresies IV May it not happen, may it not come to pass, although you craftily conceal it, that the one should take the other's place, deluding, mocking, deceiving, and presenting the appearance of the deity invoked?

If the magi, who ares o much akin to soothsayers [Levites], relate that, in their incantations, pretended gods steal in frequently instead of those invoked;  that some of these, moreover, are spirits of grosser substance, who pretend that they are gods, and delude the ignorant by their lies and deceit,-  why should we not similarly believe that here, too, others substitute themselves for those who are not, that they may both strengthen your superstitious beliefs, and rejoice that victims are slain in sacrifice to them under names not their own?

33. Your gods, it is recorded, dine on celestial couches, and in golden chambers, drink,
        and are at last soothed by the music of the lyre, and singing .
        You fit them with ears not easily wearied;
        and do not think it unseemly to assign to the gods
        the pleasures by which earthly bodies are supported,
        and which are sought after by ears enervated by the frivolity of an unmanly spirit.

IT'S TRUE: JESUS NEVER POSTED A LAW THAT SAID "THOU SHALT NOT MUSICALLY MOCK ME"

5.13.13
In the Book of Enoch referenced by Jude those for whom God will come in horrible judgement are specificially those who CAN BE seduced by mixed-sex choirs, musical instruments, drama, 'wearing of apparel' as seductive clergy garb (worn by the Levites). The holy Sethites who ignored the teaching fell into this musical idolatry, changed their minds but could never get back up. Knowing they were doomed they sought comfort by seducing as many other people as possible. From Hitler and beyond the MARK of success is how many people you can entice to accompany them in BOWING while the PIPERS pipe: Jesus called them "children" which was a dirty word.

The prophecy in Revelation is that again Satan will be loosed and knowing that he has a short time will work really hard to seduce as many as possible before Lake of Fire time. IF POSSIBLE the ELECT (those added by Christ to His church) will be deceived: those who ARE deceived are simply not recognized by Jesus.

MOST of the mildy-musical religions are said to have fallen into a "rock and roll" style which is that Black influence of the "F" word. Among recognized groups a few Churches of Christ have not already fallen into INSTRUMENTAL "worship" or its VIRTUAL-INSTRUMENTAL with a cappella which in its origin are the castrated praise singers working for the MOTHER church.

2 Thessalonians those who are warned not to be moved are tempted by:

1. Purpose Driven or deliberate deceivers.
2. Something unknown: a piece of ignorance. Epithet for those who are predestinated who HAD deceived the whole world.
3. Members is defined as "A Member of the Church of Christ."
4. The METHOD of deception is musical melody.

I didn't make this up! That is why they are in the Davidic MAKING WAR mode and will not or cannot hear what you say. That's fine: seems the WORLD and the WISE (Sophists speakers, singers, instrument players) are marked as NOT supposing to hear (Matthew 23). Since the BEAST is clearly defined as "A new style of singing or drama" the MARK will be anyone who can be seduced. It's all in the book.

2Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren,

8.12.11 The Churches of Christ was never "unioned" with the Disciples of Christ / Christian Churches. Don't be duped.
The Disciples / Christian Churches were the first to say that GOD COMMANDED INSTRUMENTAL WORSHIP in the Old Testament and since He has not changed the Law, it is still acceptable to use instrumental music in what is described solely as "A School of the Word of Christ" as Jesus commanded when He sent preachers OUT.
  1. The New credo is that God commanded instrumental praise and WE will not be disobedient.  A small number of preachers have been duped into a fatal fall from grace: flattery will get you anything!
  2. If God did NOT command the use of Musical Instruments (to make noise) even when He abandoned them to worship the starry host BECAUSE of musical idolatry.
  3. Then Jeremiah 23 by the Spirit OF Christ (the only One) says that you have blasphemed The Holy Spirit.

The Church is built on the foundation of the Prophets and Apostles. I have commented on a paper by "Anon" to prove that no one was so uninformed that they could have accidentially missed the fork in the roat at Mount Sinai. I know of no preacher or scholar who understands what happened: "Doctors of the law take away the key to knowledge." Jesus called these same Scibes and Pharisees, hypocrites. In the Ezekiel 33 example He names speakers, singers and instrument players who have no role in an Ekklesia of Christ. It's True: Jesus never said "thou shall not be a hypocrite."

8.09.11 Review of K.C.Moser who is the foundation of the neo-trinitarians and Anti-Baptism direct commands

These bloggers build on the foundation of "faith only" so that OBEYING THE GOSPEL really means just BELIEVING THE GOSPEL. None of them have obeyed the direct command to build on the foundation of the Prophets and Apostles. They, like the Jews promote the use of instruments to "make the voice of the victim silent" and to fleece the lambs but Christ in the prophets warned about the Lying Pen of the Scribes.  Blaspheming of the Holy Spirit is saying something the Spirit of Christ in the prophets said is something else: using the human imagination (all songs and sermons) iscalled by God the product of wicked minds: not just in error!

Jay Guin Reviews: Jay is trying to sect-out The Progressive Church of Christ. As usual, those who read beyond the sacred pages land in Neo-Babylonianism John defined in Revelation 17 where the speakers, singers and instrument players were called sorcerers and John says they will be (have been) cast alive into the Lake of Fire..

Discuss this and other Anti-Christian Attacks.

Bob Williams in the Origins of Christian Worship teaches (along with most preachers) that the Christian Worship was derived from the Jews which until its destruction was at the temple;
"After its construction by Solomon, the temple in Jerusalem became the prominent focus of Jewish worship. It appears that the emphasis of worship in the temple was primarily on sacrificial offerings and praise to God through music.
All of the sowing of discord in the modern church is founded on total ignorance of the story of the Monarchy: God turned them over to worship the starry host. Why do YOU think so many are working so legalisticall hard to conform the church to the Monarchy.

People of Purpose (Studies in Ephesians) James Wood Predestination
FLEX Adult Bible Study Curricu
lum 21st Century Christian

The tiny remnant of Jews who had not bowed to Baal were preserved and predestinated (God's wish) that they accept Christ.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow,  [He knew the Jews beforehand]

Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid.
        For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
Romans 11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.
        Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias?
        how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,
Romans 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars;
        and I am left alone, and they seek my life.


Paul is never speaking "dogma" where the theologians gather dogma (dogma includes music) which they can used to justify getting paid for the free water of the Word.  His most often problem is Jews who believed they were predestinated: Paul has to prove that they were not predestinated because they fell fatally because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.

By looking at the rest of Paul's writings you will not fall into the trap of writing a sermon outline which turns around and bites you with a terminal virus.  The "progressives" are the most fatally flawed by lifitng proof texts and then not being able to see the rest of the story.

Chris Seidman on the word Psallo and harps in revelation as authority for instruments in HIS church.

Review of Truit Adair's review of Rick Atchley.  Preachers are shooting blanks and keeping their career path safe as long as they agree that Amos (by the Spirit of Christ) condemned only their "attitude." And as long as they say that God commanded anything in the cursed king, kingdom, temple, sacrificial system at which they made exorcism noises never called music. The church is built upon the Prophets and Apostles all who radically condemn the the Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers, parasites and hypocrites (defined as speakers, singer and instrument players). There is NO historic scholar who did not agree that Amos was condemning the use of instruments in Samaria.

I have added proof that Jesus warned about musical performers as the enemy.

When Ahaz took the sacrifices and noise (never music) outside of Jerusalem he violated God's law which quarantined the horrors behind closed doors .  If you become a Levite singer outside of the Temple in Jerusalem the PATTERN is that God will send a plague upon you.

Robert Ballad The Case for Instrumental Music.
Robert Ballard: This book refers to theover 180 places in the Bible where instrumental music is used to praise God.
Nevertheless, there is not a single instance of the church--beginning in the wilderness as the Qahal or synagogue--every assemblying to sing with instrumental accompaniment. From the Jews and the Marzeah (Amos) onward including the Agapae, people engaged in many "religious practices." The cult or feast of the dead or the feast of Martyrs usually engaged great outbursts of wailing, eating and playing instruments. These "Funeral" activities infiltrated the assembly and adopted in modern rituals.
        Malachi 3 defines music as marks of Sorcerers when Messiah came.
        Malachi 4 defines the "baptism" of Spirit (Wind) and Fire for this Viper Race.
            Anathema identifies rhetoricians, singers or instrument players dedicated to perform temple rituals. Because presuming to AID God is called blasphemy, they cannot be redeemed and therefore must be destroyed.

Jay Guin of The Progressive Church of Christ has a new attempt to justify instrumental noise in the School of Christ.
See our Review of Grace Centered Magazine as a promoter of the Progressive Church of Christ.


THOSE WHO IMPOSE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC BUILD ON THE FOUNDATION OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES.

The first two reasons assert that under the Old Testament, God did not just allow instrumental music, He commanded and blessed it. Rick offered the following passages for these contentions: 2 Chronicles 5:13-14; 7:6; 29:25-26; Psalm 33:1- 3; 92:1-3; 150:1-6.


Never mind that the godly tribes were quarantined. No singer or player went INTO or NEAR a holy thing or place on the penalty of death. Some of these patterns are separated from the last by up to 300 years.

CHRIST IN THE PROPHETS WARNED ABOUT THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES.

Stand in the gate of the Lords house [courts], and proclaim there this word,
        and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah,
        that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord. Jeremiah 7:2

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
        Amend your ways and your doings,
        and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Jeremiah 7:3 

Trust ye not in lying words, saying,
        The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord,
        The temple of the Lord, are these. Jeremiah 7:4


Jer. 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is WITH US?
        LO, CERTAINLY IN VAIN MADE HE IT;
        THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS in vain.

For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor commanded them
        in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,
        concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John,  

That the Pharisees puffed up unto strange boasting,
        were wont to pretend that the Divine Word was with them and in them,
        and therefore foolishly affirmed that they had advanced to marvellous wisdom, 
        the Spirit Itself will testify, 
        since Christ says by the Prophet Jeremiah unto them, 
                How do ye say, WE are wise, and the word of the Lord is with us?
                For nought to the scribes became their lying pen;
                the wise
men were ashamed, were dismayed and taken;
                what wisdom
is in them? because they rejected the word of the Lord.

For how are they not taken rejecting the Living and Hypostatic Word of God,
         receiving not the faith to Him-ward, 
         but dishonouring the Impress of God the Father,
         and refusing to behold His most true Form (so to say)
         through His God-befitting Authority and Power?

THE PROPHECIES BY CHRIST WERE FULFILLED BY JESUS CHRIST: JESUS AND PETER MAKES THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS THE ONLY TRUTH.

John 6:44 No man can come to me,
        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:45 It is WRITTEN IN THE PROPHETS
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

2Pet. 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words
        which were spoken before by the HOLY PROPHETS
        and of the commandment of us the APOSTLES of the Lord and Saviour:

IT WAS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WHO SPOKE THROUGH THE PROPHETS AND NOT LYING SCRIBES whom He called hypocrites by naming speakers, singers and instrument players in Ezekiel 33.

    1Pet. 1:10 Of which salvation the PROPHETS have inquired and searched diligently,
            who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time
            the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
            when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ,
            and the glory that should follow.    

God did NOT speak through the lying pen of the Scribes who recorded the Monarchy which God had NOT commanded.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the WORD of his power,
        when he had by himself purged our sins,
        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high

THOSE WHO DELIBERATELY SOW DISCORD BY QUOTING THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES (hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players) are defined by the Spirit:

Jer. 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
        Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you:
        they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,
        and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me,
        The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace;
        and they say unto every one that walketh
        after the imagination of his own heart,
        No evil shall come upon you.   

Despise tthe Word of God of God and using your own words is:

Blasphēm-eō , pf. A. “beblasphēmēka” D.18.10:—speak profanely of sacred things, “eis theous” Pl.R.381e; offer rash prayers,

1. Because Christ as Spirit spoke ONLY through the prophets.
2. Those who use use the pattern of the Lying Pen of the Scribes, in fact despise and ignore the SPIRIT message.
3. Christ in Jeremiah defines that as blasphemy

Hebrew: H5006 nâ’ats naw-ats' A primitive root; to scorn; abhor, (give occasion to) blaspheme, contemn, despise, flourish, X great, provoke. 1.04.11 Bible 101a

Christ in Isaiah 23 (etal, etal) that if you teach something that the Lord has not taught then you are guilty of blasphemy.
That is spell CENI as far as what anyone is allowed to speak in the name of the Lord.
If you add instruments because you are not aware of many commands against it.
And the Lord has not commanded you to impose instruments when He comes to be our sole Teacher: tha spells BLASPHEMY.
BE AWARE THAT JOHN IN REVELATION AND MOST RECORDED HISTORY PROVES THAT RELIGIOUS INSTRUMENTS ARE THE MARK OF SORCERERS.

No on can stick a pin in a dolly or hold "workshops" to expel the demonisn of the Biblical church.  However, no one was so ignorant that they did not know that people could be "bewitched" out of their purse by the use of sex and instrumental music.

Progressive is regressive "back to Babylon" and especially to the Stone Movement which had nothing in common with the historic Restoration of the Church of Christ promoted by John Calvin and continued in England and Ireland before the Campbells and others came to America and gained freedom of speech and the press.

Progressive in the Civil arena means that the Constitution is a "living document" which changes with the times.

Progressive in the Religious arena means that the Bible is like the Constitution: those who are Apostolic or rest on the teachings of the Apostoles and Prophets for all times are mocked as "strict constructionists."  By looking at how "progressive" take snippets and make up their own Bible, we can see that progressive is almost always ANTI-Biblical.   This is the HIGH CHURCH patternism of the Disciples-Christian churches.

While claiming to RESTORE the church, Places like ACU and Lipscomb university see Randy Harris as a guide through the Grizzly Bear called the Bible. For Instance, Randy Harriss (ACU) has been the darling guiding blight of the "progressives."  In God Work he notes An You can see that tampering with mysticism (witchcraft) leads personal opinions to trump the direct command to teach that which has been taught: JESUS SAID DOCTORS OF THE LAW TAKE AWAY THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE--FOR A PRICE, ALWAYS FOR A PRICE.

Thereupon Socrates remarked: “On my word, Callias, you are giving us a perfect dinner; for not only have you set before us a feast that is above criticism, but you are also offering us very delightful sights and sounds.” [3] “Suppose we go further,” said Callias, “and have some one bring us some perfume, so that we may dine in the midst of pleasant odours, also.” “No, indeed!” replied Socrates

But all these discussions are missing the point. Here in 2Thes.2 we are seeing a restrainer of a horrendous entity of evil. We are looking here at a blasphemer against the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The hideous thing is a destroyer of all that is sacred. He has set himself against God's holy city Jerusalem. We have not seen such evil in a ruler since the days of Antiochus in 168 B.C. This is that beast demon spirit that will transform the peacemaking Antichrist into the abominably evil 666 Beast of the Apocalypse. an antichristian force of the ultimate climactic abominable evil. We have not seen such unrestrained evil before.

This person the prophet Daniel and the apostle John describe is a malevolent and godless personage speaking abominable and unheard of things. We are looking here at a person of ultimate evil.

"Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling to meet him, we beg you, brethren, not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God."

CLICK TO SEE IF YOU WANT TO BE AN END-TIME SORCERER JOHN DEFINED AS RHETORICIANS, SINGERS AND INSTRUMENT PLAYERS UNDER THE BABYLON MOTHER OF HARLOTS. Randy Harris and the progressives say FOLLOW ME: I KNOW NOTHING. That's what Christ promised in 2 Thessalonians: He sends strong delusions through strong deluders and the PROOF is lying wonders.
Although he identifies himself as a preacher, he tells us he does a bit of light gambling (p. 40). He enjoys movies about Satan (p. 39). He laughingly tells us he lied (p. 61).

He concludes this section by saying, "What I've described to you is basically my postmodernism. That is, I am learning to make peace with a loss of certainty." In contrast, Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth" (John 8:32).

[12] Harris feels the historic evidence for Christ's resurrection is not compelling. He says "It is somewhere between Elvis at the 7-11 and the Gettysburg Address." He goes on to say, "The Holy Spirit is the continuing presence of God that testifies in us to the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (p. 79). I do believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of each Christian, but I am curious about the way and manner of the Spirit's testifying to Bro. Harris. Is it by dreams and visions, or a still small voice? Is it like the trumpet sound on Sinai or a nudge within? The Spirit speaks to me and every other Christian through the Scripture, which he guided chosen men to write (II Pet. 1:20-21). Any other communications are of uncertain origin.

[7] He has a low view of Scripture. He speaks of the Apostle John "toss(ing) in little throwaway lines..." "John does this stuff on the Holy Spirit that we don't see in the synoptic" (p. 77). He thinks Paul "made a mess of the Corinthian's situation." Of Esther, he says "there is this crazy book of Esther" (p.89).

"I am a postmodern, mystic, panentheist. Happily situated in Churches of Christ. And I am going nowhere. You can be a postmodern, mystic, panentheist and be perfectly happy in this tradition" (p. 95).

[22] The most disturbing thing about this worthless book is that its author works as a mentor of students at ACU. He works "mostly with Bible majors" (p. 31). This helps explain the growing number of congregations, staffed by ACU-trained preachers, that have abandoned the goal of being the Church revealed in the Bible. They have settled for being like the Christian Churches rather than the old biblical model.
THE FOUNDATION IS THE LIE THAT CHURCHES OF CHRIST SECTED OUT OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

TO THE CONTRARY, THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST NEVER JOINED THE SAME LOSTNESS OF THE STONEITES.

In The Christian Messenger for November, 1834, is quoted an article from the Millennial Harbinger (Campbell's paper) as follows:

"Or does he (Stone) think that one or two individuals, of and for themselves, should propose and effect a formal union among the hundred of congregations scattered over this continent, called Christians or Disciples, without calling upon the different congregations to express an opinion or a wish upon the subject?

We discover, or think we discover, a squinting at [14]  some sort of precedency or priority in the claims of the writer of the above article," etc.

It is well known that Mr. Campbell insisted upon immersion before believers were received into fellowship, to which Stone answered:

"We cannot, with our present views, unite on the opinions that unimmersed persons cannot receive remission of sins."
It is utterly impossible in the "fellowship cult" to accept the unbaptized as members meaning to participate and teach without TEACHING that Christ in the prophets was lying and that Jesus in fulfilment was lying about the commands to be baptized.

And though later on Stone came to believe in immersion in water for the remission of sins, there is no evidence that he ever made it a test of fellowship And Stone DENIED that he could unite with the Church of Christ.
We will show that the use of INSTRUMENTS along with SINGING is the clear definition of witchcraft or sorcery. The problem with the Progressive Church of Christ Sectarians is that they do not and perhaps CANNOT read the Words of Christ and define words within the context of the writings.  It is true that Paul said that until they were converted (Baptized) the Jews would not be able to HEAR the word PREACHED by being READ in the synagogue or read BLACK text on BROWN paper.

Jay Guin: The Future of the Church of Christ

Liminality

There’s actually a technical word for the mess we find ourselves in: “liminality.” It’s a term from anthropology. It’s the condition of a human society that has just experienced major change. At times of liminality, people feel unsettled and make many false starts before finding a new status quo. This is from Wikipedia –

The liminal state is characterized by ambiguity, openness, and indeterminacy. One’s sense of identity dissolves to some extent, bringing about disorientation. Liminality is a period of transition where normal limits to thought, self-understanding, and behavior are relaxed – a situation which can lead to new perspectives.

CHANGE SUCH AS PROMISE KEEPERS PROMOTED DISSOCIATION OR DRIVING INTO MILD SCHIZOPHRENIA.


For instance, the "men's movement" makes its appeal through the phallic religion of ancient paganism and modern phylosophy and everyone gets aroused and falls into line:

"It is Noll's thesis that Carl Jung created a select, elite group of spiritual initiates that would lead the rest of society to redemption [Jubilee was always connected to redemption and atonement].

Jung was influenced by Eugen Diederichs who "called for just such a spiritual aristocracy to lead" post-war Germany. (p. 87)

Diederichs also, believed that "being truly religious means being irrational" and that his calling as a publisher was to "push the irrationalist character of religion into the foreground" and assist in creating "a new mythos" or "mystique" (paradigm) for the spiritual reawakening of the Germanic peoples."

See Rubel Shelly and Randy Harris using Narrative Theology to do a second incarnation to turn the loss of Grace because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai into a "paradigm" for worship and community. Those following Satan are reincarnated as "our spiritual fathers."

"Jung was also influenced by Count Hermann Keyserling and was a prominent lecturer at Keyserling's Schule der Weisheit (School of Wisdom) which taught yoga and other esoteric doctrines.

"Keyserling trained his metaphysically superior elite to
lead the spiritual reawakening of the world.

His goal was "to develop sages from fragments of men" and to develop "the true leader of the future"...the metaphysically "chosen" agents of cultural change in the modern world. (Noll. p. 94)

"Was Jung a utopian? According to Noll, Jung hoped that through his methods of psychoanalysis that his

"patients would not only heroically suffer psychological crucifixions and heal themselves, but afterwards they could redeem society as well by becoming initiates of this new secret wisdom of the ages...

In a section on "Individuation and Collectivity"... Jung proposes linking individual spiritual development with the fate of humankind, using such statements as,

"The individual is obliged by the collective demands to purchase his individuation at the cost of equivalent work for the benefit of society." (p. 232)

Noll concludes, informing movements to "move you into the presence of God" through song, music and dance:

"Through the techniques Jung taught his patients, which he expected them to practice well after therapy was over, they could access the religious wisdom of the ages. If they survived the initial ordeal without permanent damage,

they could announce these insights from the ancestors and apply them to the rest of society, thereby redeeming humanity by leading it to a spiritual awakening.

As these initiates, the elite corps of the individuated, can receive information directly from the collective unconscious (the land of the ancestors or the dead),

they have the advantage and, indeed, the obligation, to proselytize this new doctrine for the benefit of society. (The Jung Cult: Origins of a Charismatic Movement by Richard Noll (Princeton University Press, 1994, p. 232-233)

If we are to repeat history, that nervous "end of the cycle" feeling will be acted out in a feeding-frenzy to establish "new programs" and to decide who will be the next "god-king" to lead us safely into the next millennium. This may look like signs of spiritual health but many observers note that it may be the "death rattles" of a Word-starved dying civilizations. Amos and Isaiah spoke of that music/starvation theme. Using the "wine" symbol, one observer noted that --

"Jingling, banging, and rattling accompanied heathen cults, and the frenzying shawms of a dozen ecstatic cries intoxicated the masses. Amid this euphoric farewell feast of a dying civilization, the voices of nonconformists were emerging from places of Jewish and early Christian worship ..." (Encyclopedia Judaica, 1971 ed., s.v. "Music")

In worship, this death-spasm may result because its "spirit" is "excitement" or "wine" rather than "Word" which gives life. By not anchoring faith in Christ's power to accomplish His task during His first advent the world might drug the church and its dying gasp might look exciting. This breakdown usually happens because --

"Based on the concept of an organic pattern in the life course of civilization, a morphology of history: the idea that every culture has its period of youth, its period of culmination, its years then of beginning to totter with age and of striving to hold itself together by means of rational planning, projects, and organization, only finally to terminate in decrepitude, petrification... and no more life. Moreover, in this view of Spengler's, we were at present on the point of passing from what he called the period of Culture to Civilization, which is to say, from our periods of youthful, spontaneous, and wonderful creativity to those of

uncertainty and anxiety, contrived programs, and the beginning of the end." (Campbell, Joseph, Myths to Live By, p. 84)

The Aztecs are a dead affect image for Rubel Shelly and Randy Harris.

Therefore, just as they tried to "relight the fires" in king David but couldn't prevent his death, on page 88 Campbell (like Amos) notes that the period of "dying" is always marked by a "wine-like" urge which "resurrects" the Aztec pattern. While these urges are often the product of the immature Campbell notes that--

"Yet there is a great religious fervor and ferment evident among not only young people but old and middle-aged as well. The fervor, however, is in a mystical direction, and the teachers who seem to be saying most to many are those who have come to us

from a world that was formerly regarded as having left altogether behind in the great press forward of modern civilization, representing only archaic, out-lived manners of thinking. We have gurus galore..."

Drugs and Wine as Evidence of Mind Control

People under stress often return to ancient religious forms and beliefs because the "gods don't work any more." The universal belief of these systems was that true religion is best illustrated by drugs (wine or ecstasy as at Cane Ridge) which forces the "worship services" into an exciting period which "meets my needs" and brings me face to face with the "god" who hides except at periodic festivals. The ritual literally forced the gods to do what they didn't want to do. In the symbolism of the gospel of wine, the ritual feeds the exhausted wine with new yeast so that it releases its energies and "turns us on."

Unfortunately, the "turn on" demands a bigger and bigger "fix." Campbell notes the same urge in most native religions. We note again:

"Now the first and most important effect of a living mythological symbol is to waken and give guidance to the energies of life. It is an energy-releasing and directing sign, which not only 'turns you on,' as they say today,

but turns you on in a certain direction,

making you function a certain way--whichwill be one conducive to your participation in the life and purposes of a functioning social group." (Campbell, p. 89).

"when the symbols provided by the social group no longer work, and the symbols that do work are no longer of the group, the individual cracks away, becomes disassociated and disoriented, and we are confronted with what can only be named a pathology of the symbol." (Campbell, p. 89).

7107.qatsaph, kaw-tsaf´; a primitive root; to crack off, i.e. (figuratively) burst out in rage:—(be) anger(-ry), displease, fret self, (provoke to) wrath (come), be wroth.

"That the spiritualistic and the legalistic are not polar opposites but in fact correlatives has been one of the discoveries of this study... If the Spirit does not come to us freely in Christ then

we must go to him through some kind of spiritual achievement and

this means, ultimately, via law.

"One of the most striking aspects of the Scrolls is the coincidence in them of a 'legalistic' and a 'charismatic' piety." (Bruner, A Theology of the Holy Spirit, p. 229)

Signs of the Times Warning

Jeremiah connected the need for professional (professional worship music was always spiritual adultery) "musical worship teams" to the end-time period of a people. They were lost but didn't want to repent.

The solution, then and now, is to create artificial feelings of worship (sad songs or happy "praise" songs but no teaching songs) by the use of women trained to create a tranquilizing drug for the rational mind (endorphin) so their emotional nature could bear their lostness.

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning (strike a musical note) women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come: Jeremiah 9:17

And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters. Jeremiah 9:18

But, Jesus cast out the musical minstrels more or less violently like dung.

Jay Guin thinks that having erradicated the olden Church of Christ is him CASTING OUT DEMONS!

Jay Guin: Liminality can be good, if it opens us to new and deeper truths. But it will be bad indeed if we wind up nothing but confused or, worse yet, landing in the wrong spot. We need to think about how to get past the confusion and focus on the new and deeper truths.

I suppose that means getting visions (Lucado) or hearing audible voices (Shelly) or having the Spirit person speak to you beyond the sacred pages?

(Luke 11:24-26) “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”

CHRIST LED AMOS TO WARN ABOUT THIS VERY THING.

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

And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit.
        Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel;

        I will not again pass by them any more
. Amos 8:2

Keluwb (h3619) kel-oob'; from the same as 3611; a bird-trap (as furnished with a clap-stick or treadle to spring it); hence a basket (as resembling a wicker cage): - basket, cage.

As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. Je.5:27

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

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

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Is.56:11

And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. Je.15:3

Amos 8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day
        saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place;
        they shall cast them forth with silence.

Amos 8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

Amos 8:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD,
        that I will cause the sun to go down at noon,
        and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

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

Matthew.11.html

Iamblichus They accordingly not only turn aside from evil action, but through the words, it is manifest in its forms and changes the impulse to a contrary direction

6. These opinions were anciently entertained, the universe itself being regarded not as a fabric but as a birth, a creation or genesis, and evolution. But the philosophers generally disapproved of the doleful rites and immodest speech. Plutarch enumerates the various practices, such as the eating of raw flesh, the days of fasting and mourning for the slain divinity, (Matthew XI, 16; Amos VIII, 10) and the uttering of filthy and unseemly language.

He explains that they were "not in honor of the gods, but rather to avert, mollify and appease the wrath of evil dæmons." The Emperor Julian, however, forbade the using of words that should not be spoken or heard.
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,  
        that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
        but of hearing the words of the LORD:

Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,
        they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

Amos 8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.

Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
        seeking rest; and finding none, he saith,
        I will return unto my house whence I came out.

Appendix to Hippolytus XLVI.

For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; naked, and ye clothed me not; sick, and ye visited me not: I was in prison, and ye came not unto me.
I made your ears that ye might hear the Scriptures;
and ye prepared them for the
songs of demons, and lyres, and jesting.

I made your eyes that you might see the light of my commandments, and keep them; and ye called in fornication and wantonness, and opened them to all other manner of uncleanness.

I prepared your mouth for the utterance of adoration, and praise, and psalms, and spiritual odes,

and for the exercise of continuous reading;
and ye fitted it to railing, and swearing, and blasphemies, while ye sat and spoke evil of your neighbours.

I made your hands that ye might stretch them forth in prayers and supplications, and ye put them forth to robberies, and murders, and the killing of each other. I ordained your feet to walk in the preparation of the Gospel of peace, both in the churches and the houses of my saints; and ye taught them to run to adulteries, and fornications, and theatres, and dancings, and elevations.135

Lenski wrote of 1 Cor 10--

"It is a great mistake to imagine that back of their idolatry and their idol sacrifices there is nothing but an empty vacuity. True enough, as 8:4 makes plain, the gods of the idols have no existence whatever; no being by the name of Jupiter exists, and this is true with respect to all other gods.

But something does exist, something that is far more terrible than these pseudo-gods, namely an entire kingdom of darkness which is hostile to God, a host of demons or fallen angels who are ruled by the greatest of their number, namely Satan, Eph. 2:3; 6:12. (Lenski)

Eph. 2:2 in which once ye did walk according to the age of this world,
        according to the ruler of the authority of the air,
        of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience,
Eph. 2:3 among whom also we all did walk once in the desires of our flesh,
        doing the wishes of the flesh and of the thoughts,
        and were by nature children of wrath — as also the others,

YOU CANNOT DEFEAT SATAN IF YOU USE THE WEAPONS OR INSTRUMENTS OF SATANL

Eph. 6:10 As to the rest, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might;
Eph. 6:11 put on the whole armour of God, for your being able to stand against the wiles of the devil,
Eph. 6:12 because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh,
        but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age,
        with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;

We do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood:

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

WHY THE PROGRESSIVES WHO GO BEYOND WHAT IS WRITTEN HAVE ALREADY FALLEN

Eph. 6:13 because of this take ye up the whole armour of God,
        that ye may be able to resist in the day of the evil, and all things having done — to stand.
Eph. 6:14 Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about in truth, and having put on the breastplate of the righteousness,
Eph. 6:15 and having the feet shod in the preparation of the good-news of the peace;

DON'T GET SHOT WITH LOVE ARROWS.

-Prometheus  [645] For visions of the night, always haunting my maiden chamber, sought to beguile me with seductive words, saying: “O damsel greatly blessed of fortune, why linger in your maidenhood so long when it is within your power to win a union of the highest? Zeus is inflamed by passion's dart [650] for you and is eager to unite with you in love. Do not, my child, spurn the bed of Zeus, but go forth to Lerna's meadow land of pastures deep and to your father's flocks and where his cattle feed, so that the eye of Zeus may find respite from its longing.”
-Horace Odes 2.8

Though oft they threaten, never leave
Your godless door.

Undoubtedly the comic poet who [735] mounted the stage to praise himself in the parabasis would deserve to be handed over to the sticks of the beadles. Nevertheless, oh Muse, if it be right to esteem the most honest and illustrious of our comic writers at his proper value, permit our poet to say that he thinks he has deserved a glorious renown. First of all, he is the one who has compelled his rivals no longer [740] to scoff at rags or to war with lice;
        and as for those Heracleses, always chewing and ever hungry,
        he was the first to cover them with ridicule and to chase them from the stage;
he has also dismissed that slave, whom one never failed to set weeping before you, [745] so that his comrade might have the chance of jeering at his stripes and might ask, “Wretch, what has happened to your hide? Has the lash rained an army of its thongs on you and laid your back waste?” After having delivered us from all these wearisome ineptitudes and these low buffooneries,
        he has built up for us a great art, like a palace with high towers,
       [750] constructed of fine phrases, great thoughts and of jokes not common on the streets.
Moreover it's not obscure private persons or women that he stages in his comedies; but, bold as Heracles, it's the very greatest whom he attacks, undeterred by the fetid stink of leather or the threats of hearts of mud.

Jay Guin: When I use the term, I mean a church that rejects salvation by works, including salvation based on any doctrine other than the gospel — the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. (Again, please read Parts I and II of Do We Teach Another Gospel?

Christ prophesied and Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM: the "core" gospel is what Jesus Christ did and we cannot do.  It is called a TUPOS which is a pattern capable of being imitated. Paul in Romans 6 says that only when we have OBEYED that FORM of teachings of Jesus Christ are we THEN FREE FROM SIN.  if you join Jay's Progressive Church of Christ you may be hindered from OBEYING the direct command of Jesus Christ.

IF YOU BELIEVE THE BIBLE'S STATEMENT ABOUT BAPTISM YOU ARE EXCLUDED FROM THE PROGRESSIVE SECT.

YOU CANNOT CAUSE WIDOWS TO CAST THEMSELVES OUT OF THEIR SYNAGOGUE!
Is. 1:23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

        and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart,
        because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

If you want to REALLY worship Demons here is how it is done
Clement of Alezandria Chapter XIII.-Origin of Idolatry.

See The Sons of God.

See Alexander Hislop The Great Red Dragon

"But when all these things were done, men turned again to impiety; [There is a similar chapter in Homily IX. 7, but in a discourse: on the following day.-R.] and on this account a law was given by God to instruct them in the manner of living.

But in process of time, the worship of God and righteousness were corrupted by the unbelieving and the wicked, as we shall show more fully by and by.

Moreover, perverse and erratic religions were introduced, to which the greater part of men gave themselves up,

by occasion of holidays and solemnities, instituting drinkings and banquets,
following
pipes, and flutes, and harps, and diverse kinds of musical instruments, and indulging themselves in all kinds of drunkenness and luxury.

Hence every kind of error took rise; hence they invented groves and altars, fillets and victims, and after drunkenness they were agitated as if with mad emotions.

By this means power was given to the demons to enter into minds of this sort, so that they seemed to lead insane dances and to rave like Bacchanalians; hence were invented the gnashing of teeth, and bellowing from the depth of their bowels; hence a terrible countenance and a fierce aspect in men, so that he whom drunkenness had subverted and a demon had instigated, was believed by the deceived and the erring to be filled with the Deity.

Chapter VII.-Sacrificial Orgies.

"But they did not cease to worship images, by reason of the evil intelligence of the magicians, who found excuses for them, which had power to constrain them to the foolish worship For, establishing this things by magical ceremonies, they assigned them feasts from sacrifices, libations, flutes, and shoutings,

by means ofj which senseless men, being deceived, and their kingdom being taken from them, yet did not desist from the worship that they had taken up with.

To such an extent did they prefer error, on account of its pleasantness, before truth.

They also howl after their sacrificial surfeit, their soul from the depth, as it were by dreams, forewarning them of the punishment that is to befall such deeds of theirs.

Jay Guin: if this doesn’t make sense to you.) A church that projects contemporary music on the screen, dresses casually, and denies the salvation of those who use the instrument is not progressive. A church that accepts as saved all baptized penitent believers but which sings Stamps-Baxter out of hymn books is progressive. At least, that’s how I like to use the term.

MUSIC AS A DEMONIC ART

The idea of music as a demonic art implies that music is not considered on its merits alone, but points beyond itself and man to the demonic. Thus music can be understood as an invention and inspiration of demons, indeed almost as a demonic possession.

It may be interpreted as an imitation or image of demonic prototypes. The musician may be conceived of as a servant or assistant of demons. Demonic music may seduce or destroy human beings.

Conversely, however, demons can be influenced, conjured up, or exorcised by means of music. These notions are intimately related, although mostly antithetically, to those of music as a divine art [see next article]. Here too there is a characteristic connection with religion and the history of religion.

Of course, a precise definition of the demonic, e.g., by opposition to the divine, is not possible for all epochs. There are fluctuations in many areas. And only in cases where some antecedent division between (good) divinities and (evil) demons is already established can a corresponding dualism arise likewise in musical perspectives. Such conceptions had already been encoun tered quite early.

Like the ideas of music as a divine art, they extend from magical, via mythological, down to theological and philosophical, forms of thought and remain active at least into the baroque period.

Thereafter they fall victim in the course of a general process of secularization to an increasingly rational skepticism.

1. Primitive Peoples. The sounds of nature (thunder, water, wind, echo) seem to early man to be the voices of demonic beings, and a spirit is locked within the sounding instrument.

The narcotic ecstasy induced by music and dance is seen as superhumanly and demonically inspired. It leads to union with the demon world, or to participation in it,

or may serve as protection against it. Different kinds of music correspond respectively to different kinds of demon.

Certain demons have a special music pertaining to them, by which they may be influenced.

At all events, music and dance play an altogether central part in all activities of magic and witchcraft.

The power of shamans and medicine men depends on knowledge and mastery of the musical devices in this connection.

Similar magical-demonic elements survive in music, often more slightly modified, well into historical times. They may be recognized without difficulty even today in the concerted pealing of church bells, in the blowing of alphorns at the onset of darkness to frighten off evil demons, or even as a romantic evocation of atmosphere in advanced music, as, for example, in the Wolves' Ravine scene in Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischütz.

Afro-America

West Africans reconstructed their native drums in the New World, preponderantly as cult instruments. Small sets of two or, more often, three drums of graded sizes form an integral part of Afro-American rituals and, in the Caribbean, also of voodoo dances.

Only the skins of sacrificial animals may be used for membranes among Afro-Bahians in Brazil, who baptize their new drums, preferably with "holy" water obtained from a Roman Catholic church.

Drums in Haiti are sacred objects and may even represent the deity itself: as such they receive libations. One type of bongo drum--there exist at least four of these--has been adopted by Western rhythm bands, as has the conga.

"Yobal (Jubal). (Note: Jubilee or "a blast of trumpets" is from Jubal which means "to lead with triumph or pomp.") and Tobalkin (Tubal-Cain), the two brethren, the sons of Lamech, the blind man, who killed Cain, invented and made all kinds of instruments (or metal weapons) of music.

"Yobal made reed instruments, and harps, and flutes, and whistles,

and the devils went and dwelt inside them.
When men blew into the pipes,
the devils sang inside them,
and sent out sounds from inside them. (Note: the "familiar spirit" of the Witch of Endor was an old "lifeless instrument" made of an old water or wineskin).

Tobalkin made cymbals, and sistra, and tambourines (or drums). And lasciviousness and fornication increased among the children of Cain, and they had nothing to occupy them except fornication--now they had no obligation [to pay] tribute, and they had neither prince nor governor--

and eating, and drinking, and lasciviousness, and drunkenness,
and dancing and
singing to instruments of music,
and the wanton
sportings of the devils, (Israel: "rose up to play" and so did David in moving the ark from God's tabernacle to his)

and the laughter which affordeth pleasure to the devils,
and the sounds of the furious lust of men neighing after women. And Satan, finding [his] opportunity in this work of error, rejoiced greatly, because

thereby he could compel the sons of Seth to come down from that holy mountain. There they had been made to occupy the place of that army [of angels] that fell [with Satan], there they were beloved by God, there they were held in honour by the angels, and were called "sons of God," even as the blessed David saith in the psalm, "I have said , Ye are gods, and all of you sons of the Most High." Ps. 82:6 (In Rev 18 the craftsmen and musicians will go with Babylon the great whore into hell).

The Bible and about three dozen contemporaneous documents such as The Book of Enoch warns that if you COME DOWN to the sound of instrumental music you will NEVER be able to return. In many Biblical examples instruments which are mind-deranging weapons the sounds are the MARKS that you HAVE fallen.

If that's too rich for you, John called the rhetoricians, singers and instrument players SORCERS in Revelation 18:23. All Greek musical terms speak of enchantment, charming or sorcery.  If you USE music when you are commanded to assemble to teach what Jesus Christ commanded to be taught then you are playing the role of a demon; the PLAY or musical idolatry at Mount Sinia was DEMONISM (1 Cor 10)

The professional mourners or celebrators are called only when the "body" is already dead and you need a whole profession of musical performers to do religion. Like little David playing on his harp, they are -- in a perverse way -- doing the will of the Lord because the will of the Lord is that they be destroyed after they have rejected Him and called for a professional king or a professional musical worship team.

Rivers and Rubicons: Nadab and Abihu #6


These have progressed into somethiing like witchcraft: in fact Lynn Anderson, honored a year or so back is the FATHER of navigating the winds of change lifting the whole patternism of Wicca.

These people are so ethically and Biblically illiterate that Jesus gave them their Phd: He said "doctors of the law take away the key to knowledge." They CANNOT blush: it is like old Goober getting enough snake handlers to convince you that he is a brain surgeon: after all they must have removed their own.
