 Citizens of my fatherland, see me setting out on my last journey, looking at my last sunlight,  and never again. No, Hades who lays all to rest leads me living to Acheron's shore, though I have not had my due portion of the chant that brings the bride, nor has any hymn been mine  for the crowning of marriage. Instead the lord of Acheron will be my groom.

"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)
Christ in the synagogue and for the ekklesia COMMNDED

.....being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

How terminally ungodly that preachers would violate the direct commands, examples and inferences if you honor God and His Word.
If the command was to READ the Word without any "me, me, me" those who claim that Christ did not ordain a PATTERN are too evil to be preachers/singers and too ignorant to let free to roam the streets.
If someone sent you a personal letter and someone "tampered" with it or charged you for "tampering" with it and then sang and clapped while singing just the "sentiment" of the letter they you know how people treat God worse than the local prostitute.
And those who ENABLE the insanity are just as guilty.
