A capella which is Italian for "In the manner of The Church."

Which Church? The Roman Catholic Church of course.

Is it authorized to continue a practice which is in error?

Ephesians 5:19 says

SPEAKING to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

We know from history that the early church sang with Psalmody for the purpose of learning the scriptures, just as many Jews used to, to learn the Torah.

Conclusion:

Those who sing a capella, with harmony etc, are just as guilty as instrumentalists in perpetuating unauthorized worship.

[color=#0000FF" size="3" face="times]It is interesting to note if it is ...

... ... ...A Cappella, Acappella, Acapella, A Capella, Acapella or A Capela?

Is it really "in the manner of the Church"?

----------------- or ----------------

Is it "in the style of the chapel"?

What does "singing with music" mean?

In terms of "psalms and hymns and spiritual songs," is "singing" where words are vocalized a form of SPEAKING? And which words?

In context, Col. 3:16 states, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly...." It doesn't stop there. It further states: "teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."[/color]

The most accurate meaning of "a cappella" in Italian is "in chapel style" (meaning vocal music only), not "in the manner of the church." In Italian, "cappella" means "chapel," not "church." It is known that early chapels did not incorporate IM, as opposed to large Roman Catholic churches, which introduced IM centuries later.

The Musical Worship Team which suddenly appeared and separated congregations of many Bible-based groups CLAIMS to be able to "lead you into the presence of God." They stand in the holy place (of church architecture) which is off limits to the masses. Because Jesus Christ is the only Mediator/Intercessor, they in fact claim to be God standing in the holy place. The Locusts John used as a code word is well docmented as the musical worship team of Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon). Their task is to SEPARATE people based on their MARK. They may drive them out of their own churches but they are not permitted to harm the godly.

If you grasp the meaning of EKKLESIA or SYNAGOGUE it will not be possible for you to even hallucinate music as a performance trying to please God or attract students.

If you do not know the meaning of Ekklesia or Synagogue then it is not possible that you are a Christian. Why? Because a Disciple is a student of the Word of Christ defending CENI in the Great Commission.
