The Law of Silence

Just wondering, if the law of silence prohibits instrumental music, why does it permit song books, church buildings, air conditioning, electricity, pews, and Bibles in English? Consistency demands these be prohibited as well.

The Church is A School of Christ in the Prophets and Apostles. Buildings were attended by Jesus but you can TEACH the Word by the riverside.

The Spirit OF [preposition] Christ defined the future Ekklesia or Church of Christ both inclusively and exclusively in the prophets. In Isaiah 57

In Isaiah 50 Christ defined the future MOCKING and SMITING of Messiah in a musical sense by the Levites

In Isaiah 55 Christ outlawed spending ou money for the Free Water of the Word. Beginning in the wilderness the only ROLE is to read the word for its' comfort and doctrine. Equating the Word and Spirit is universal.

In Isaiah 58 Christ outlawed speaking our own words or seeking our own pleasure.

That doesn't prevent Rick Atchley from using buffoonery to mock the Law of Silence.
2. Since honoring the commands of Christ for the future reign of Christ defined inclusively and exclusively to MARK those who mock His word.
3. The Spirit OF Christ in Jeremiah 23 says that is blaspheming the Holy Spirit of Christ

[color=#0000FF" size="3" face="times]The premise/question above has been raised and answered numerous times already. After a while, the worthiness of such a premise diminishes to that of a third-grade level ... or lower.

The musical instrument itself is not the issue; neither is its location. It becomes an issue when it has to be determined whether God or the Scripture has directed or authorized it. The dynamics of worship changes as much when the congregation directs its prayers to a golden calf image as when a professional or a group directs its performances to the Lord as well as to the congregants.

It is factual that throughout history the pagan world has engaged in music [understood to be with "instruments"] and dancing in worship to their gods.

It is also true that even the supposedly "followers of God" also engaged in music and dancing on "their own" where God has not directed them to do so.

In short, there has NEVER been a directive from God or from Scripture for His followers to engage in musical idolatry. NEVER. NEVER. NEVER.

[Surprise!!! Quoting Psalm 150 and other passages that reference the use of the sackbut, harp, flute, trumpet as "worship" to God does not prove that God has ever directed His followers to worship Him with musical inventions.]

[Surprise!!! Using the argument that all of it has been nailed to the cross, including instrumental music in the assembly, is not valid. Why? Because the use of instrumental music was never a part of the Old Law. How can something be ended when it was never there to begin with?]

The list of external elements that have nothing to do with worship is a short one. Actually, why not include everything possible under the sun -- kitchen, sink, utensils, indoor/outdoor toilet, heating, carpet, water fountain, baptistery, etc., etc., etc.?

Comparing these physical, external elements [carpet, toilet] to an element [blowing the trumpet for the Lord, performing to/for the congregants] that affects one's internal, "spiritual" worship is laughable and moronic.

As far as worship is concerned, what we have as a directive is to simply worship the Father in spirit and in truth. If you cannot worship the Father in spirit and in truth, in reverence and in awe, unless there's musical noise to listen to or be entertained with, then, you have a problem with your spiritual worship.[/color]
