I would LOUVEEE-UH to see what happened when you meet Jesus trudging down the dirty road--maybe now in your church neighborhood.
You jump in front of him and whine out a new style praise song with or without instruments.
I can tell you: He would HURT you in all of the right places.
The musical minstrels tried to ASSIST Him in His work and He "cast them out more or less violently" as one ejects dung.
The Dionysus or old wineskinners approached Jesus and He said that the MEN were like CHILDREN in the marketplace. They piped trying to force people to sing or lament or dance.
That old Dionysus initiation--right in the holy places--would hurt real bad when you bowed to Baal.
Did I tell you that the BEAST in Revelation (logically) is not an animal: the word means "a new style song or drama." Now THAT kind of "love" has always been the persona of religious musicians.
Love does not use the Making War or Making Love words like Psallo or Psalmos on people. Music HURTS before the drug high makes you feel spiritual. Now, I would purely resist a singy-clappy praise minister trying to jerk me into motion. As Carol Wimber of the Vineyard says and Plato and everyone says, that is the desired sexual climactic experience with the spirit person.
Here is one of my latest reviews of a preacher spewing the usual ACU type hype in promoting instruments especially effective in out of the way places.
