Writing on myths, Joseph Campbell observes from real history that when people lose their faith they "crack away to the archaic." The American Indians cracked away to the Peyote Cult and religionists deny inspiration and crack away to a virtual drug: music known as the ORGAN of creating wrath or ORGY is also highly addictive and well documented to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." In the words of the Bible, Plato and Heredotus it also turns them into women.Perhaps, we need a dedicated area for discussion of this nature. I would participate. I am interested in these subjects, in the proper setting. What say ye?
Clement of Alexandria is often used to say that he authorized instruments in the assembly: they probably intend to say that Clement was using the lyre more as an allegory in a chapter HOW TO CONDUCT OURSELVES AT FEASTS. He also speaks about Old Wives tales which may fit the host of STAFF who have some kind of job in the "temple" all day long.Perhaps, we need a dedicated area for discussion of this nature.

By reading the History of the Jewish Synagogues and pagan religions in Rome we can understand what Paul simply imposed as an asserted direct command in Romans 14. Those who do not have the capacity or need to know the "soup" into which they live, move and are destroyed by have God's permission to remain blind and deaf.Perhaps, we need a dedicated area for discussion of this nature.

Paul warned about the three sects in Rome and new converts who still bought their food at the time and days their old worship was held. We have historians defining these sects which had become so vile that "what they do in the night" at massed meetings had been outlawed: they could hold their assemblies to sing, dance, play and "Initiate" one another only during the day and with only a small number. It is a fact that a group of five mature males would NEVER agree to hire someone to lead them in his own speeches, sing, play instruments, act, dance or take up a collection. Mein Kampf noted that the SEEKERS need a large group where the cult leaders can intimidate people into giving up all of their right to read, think or speak outside of the group.
