Ken is basically telling us that the early Christians never sang hymns to God; instead, they SPOKE them. The further implication is that, since ALL forms of music are only for purposes of entertainment and are not suitable for worship, we should throw out all our present-day hymnals that include musical scores and replace them only with hymn lyrics.Ken said "All forms of music have "entertainment-only value like drinking wine and deep sleep."
I know of no history that describes even the most backward people as pretending to TEACH the laws and values of a society by making up their own songs and singing them."
Well, there went Amazing Grace out the window. Beautiful song too.
A Pathologist confesses that singing came centuries too late to be Christ-ordained wants a LAW which says "thou shalt NOT sing hymns."SILENCE for women which forbids TEACHING beyond the command to PREACH the Word by READING the Word also applies to men.

Heritage Church of Christ: White Paper filled with 100 percent false teaching.
Jim Hackney keeping up with a small band of Texans IMPOSES instrumental music in HIS congregation. He says that God maybe IMPOSED this discord and violation of all recorded evidence or at least USES it as His only way to GET AT people and make them change.
Jim says that God USES ALL THINGS for good.
Paul said that God uses all things for good to those
Who LOVE HIM and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.
Jim Hackney is one of the ACU band dedicated to RESTRUCTURING churches of Christ into Instrument Churches: as usual the promise is that we will still do A Cappella does not--dear fools--that we will NOT impose instruments over your head.
First what WE are going to do to YOU:

Next we are going to lie about all of the Biblical evidence and prove that WE have the authority to BIND and lOOSE just like the olden Apostles

Like the Atchley promise that he violated, he could say THAT was THEN but THIS is NOW.
ALL of those who have stolen or tried to steal the church house of widows and honest workers have CLAIMED that a "spirit" commanded them to do what they knew would sow DISCORD and Silence the voice of the lamb. Here is a Latin SPIRITUS which proves that the only 'person' identified is Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon. The BEAST is defined as "a new style of music or drama"
Do I believe anyone cares? Nope: not my job.
