The new "c"hristian World View denies that God, Jesus or the inspired prophets and apostles had the ability to reveal the Mind of God in WORDS able to survive for about 2,000 years. So despising God and His Word is the meaning of BLASPHEMY for Latin literates.

Stephen Johnson teaches Bible at ACU and has the feminists 1voice4change INVERTING and therefore lying about all of the texts showing that women are uniquely prone to seeing their imagination as the inspiration of God: in all of the "proof texts" he-they do not grasp that the REASON that almost all men and all women must be silent in the PATTERNED assembly because they deny that "there is ONE GOD THE FATHER (teacher) and One MEDIATOR between man and God, the MAN Jesus Christ. He is the door through which conversation comes.

In the more recent history of biblical interpretation [outlawed 1 Peter], the relationship between the preacher
<font color="#FFFFFF">.....
and the word of God is understood in terms of the historical distance between the two.

Preachers are taught that to ARRIVE at the meaning of the text
.....they must first read the text
.....as historically located correspondence
.....wrapped in the cultural idioms of the ancient world and its situation.

In fact, one of the characteristic features of MODERN exegesis
.....is to assume the great distance
.....between the ancient world of the text
.....and the contemporary world in which one lives

The preacher must be EQUIPPED with considerable skill
.....in order to traverse the vast distance between these two worlds.

Arriving in the ancient world of biblical writers, the preacher must use the proper tools
.....in order to undertake the critical task of excavating the one true and original meaning of the text.

Upon mining this precious nugget of truth,
.....he preacher must then muster the determination to make it back to the contemporary world
.....with the precious cargo intact-a treacherous journey indeed


The horrible obstacle Stephen etal see is the BRAVEHEART soul with the courage to tell you that what Jesus taught has nothing to do with OUR culture.

Stephen and the progressives do not think that you can understand APOCALYPTIC when they extort hire for UNCOVERING the One True Church and its feminists-effeminate voice.

If you watch politics or evangelists you can understand that well-turned lie is worthy more than ten thousand truths. Paul's condemnation of the fleecers at Corinth said in effect that "fools love to be fooled" and probably that liars love to be lied to. The Instrumental Apostates make the most progress by claiming that for the first time in history the ANTI-instrumental sectarian hypocritic legalists just INVENTED not using instruments (machines for doing hard work) because they are evil, ignorant southern rednecks. And that works on those upon whom it is supposed to work.

The "instrumental" mark begins in the garden of Eden and ends with the Babylon Mother of harlots performing sorcery with music. That continued through recorded history before the Disciples twisted the psallo word in 1878. However, there were minor attacks going on especially after the Civil War when the carpet bags were full: the same people who sold cardbord shoes would build you a grand "worship center."

I have worked trying to pin down some major attacks against people, especially in the south, did not continue to fill the carpet bags of the "organ and society party." Here is a few quick notes;

Because there is no command, example or remote inference of God calling the godly out of their REST to engage in congregational singing with or without instruments. And because almost all religious discord has been over music or rituals in the assembly and not "funding", you have the burden to tell us how one could even hallucinate music when we assemble as DISCIPLES or STUDENTS.

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: the Spirit OF Christ in Ezekiel 33 named performance preachers for hire, singers and instrument players (outlawed for the synagogue). This was the mark of those who had no intention of speaking the WORD or obeying it. Now, I know that God hath not said, "thou shalt not be a hypocrite" so there you have the law of silence.

This was prophesied in Psalm 22 and Psalm 41:

This is what Ken S. lives for. You may not get the straight answer you long for, but you will indeed get an answer. You will hear about the church in the wilderness, and be given the indecent artwork and the indecent unholy language to go with it. You will hear not ONLY about condemnation (not Scriptural) of instrumental music but condemnation of ALL music, including vocal without instruments. You will find out that when Jesus sang and Paul sang....well, they really didn't sing. Ken lives to contradict the Scriptures. Ken believes that God gives him different instruction than everyone else.

God bless and get ready for the storm.

When they toss you into prison you have my permission to SANG all of the songs you wish: you can play and dance and go naked with David as pattern.

Or you can sang ONE hymn and then GO OUT and not return until the next appointed hour next year same time. Don't pass the plate please.

David has some problems. What I have said is there is no command in the Bible for congregational singing with or without instruments. Paul's command was to SPEAK "that which is written for our learning." The LOGOS words for speak are the opposite of ODE.

Just because Paul sang in prison does not make a "pattern."
