According to the Purpose Driven Cult Manifesto formulated by experience, unless you have carefully infiltrated, diverted, done your building program and getting your finances all lined up, you MUST NOT OUT the secret agenda. In Seattle that normally gets the Bylaws redone by a lawyer so they can violate the founding purposes of the organization and then lie about every known "music" passage. Neutering the Deacons so they could not "sow discord" by opposing the Hostile Takeover worked pretty well in the old DEACONESS scam which no one saw as a precursor.
This is because the CHANGE to "save more souls" is so UNhuman that they PLAN to lose a large part of the congregation. SO "they can increase their membership." That means that you, the owners, are in the words of Willow Creek just 'complimentarians' and in the words of Hitler just "human material." Because you probably have a large percentage who did not know which way the Navigating the Winds were being BLOWN, the SUPRISE was probably sprung too soon. At Madison in Nashville they blew it when one of the Purpose Driven Cultists blurted out the plan to turn the church into a "theater for holy entertainment."
For anyone who cares, we have shown that there was a conspiracy to pervert all of the "musical" hints in the Bible and church history. That means that they have violatled fiducary responsibility AND they have shown themselves as NOT spiritual elders whose absolute mandate is to TEACH THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT. In another church in the Nashville area the deacons (yours have been relieved of duty FOR SUCH A TIME AS THESE) rose up and fired the preacher and the elders who were diverting the church into what has always been SORCERY if you believe the meaning of all the music words and John in Revelation 18. Why would godly men do such a thing?
They have warned you NOT to question the elder's diversion of YOUR property and that should signal someone to find a good lawyer because they have declared themselves NOT your brethren.
Now, the cookies are crumbling they need to bring on the STEWARDSHIP SCAM.
I make the raw assertion which I will prove that JESUS PAID IT ALL and there is NO LAW OF TITHING: they would be just as honest to trying to collect the Aztec's Corn Tithe. There is NO LAW OF GIVING and Paul told all literate readers so. The so calleed "proportional giving" never meant that: the early church admonished those who had PROSPERED during the week to give to the poor meaning DESTITUTE "but only if they were willing." They did not pass the plate other than to help missionaries on their way and for the destitute.
Therefore, when you give it is not to the preacher or elders but you are INVESTING in Community Held Property so that you don't have to meet in the rain and snow. That means that anyone who CONFISCATES your property and diverts it to a clearly-pagan system of idolatry is in the same CLASS as a partner who decides to turn your Time Share property into a Crack House. They have no such right and minimal pagan ethics would not permit it.
You owe it to the watching world to prove that churches of Christ DO NOT operate as a Jim Bakker (who is at it again). If you FAIL to do it you will be guilty of helping to BLACKEN the name of the Church of Christ. WWJD? He would turn over the collection plates, honor the widow but BECAUSE the clergy TOOK the money He promised that their MEGA-CHURCH HOUSE would be taken down, burned up and we know that most of the Levitical Warrior Musicians and ALL of their harps were burned up in the process. You don't have to do that: you can restore it to an EKKLESIA or school of the Bible which Jesus founded and the Campbells restored--for one shining moment until the organists went LEGALISTIC AND SECTARIAN.
I assure you that Isaiah 30, The Sinai Musical Idolatry, The Book of Enoch and dozens of similary commentaries affirm that God comes (as in Jude) to execute judgment on those people who USED the Lucifer wind, string and percussion instruments. Why--if there are three faithful believers still left--are you so DEATHLY SILENT when this is YOUR only test of WWJD. WHAT about the "speed of light" gives any literate person the reason to THINK that in the postmodern world you tell the TRUTH by LYING about all of the Bible and church history. Don't you feel the Waco or Jonestown ghosts stalking you to destroy you BECAUSE you let the preacher scramble the Bible.
Sure, you have had FEAR induced and I could hear it: but FEAR or PHOEBUS is another name for Apollo who is the Apollyon PROMISED by John with the LOCUSTS who were--in the Legends John referred to--are the Musical Worship staff which history calls adulterers and John calls Sorcerers. But, "I was afraid" will not cut it. Music as sorcery is DEFINED as inducing fear or panic and that is specificially OUTLAWED by definition.
More later on the UNIVERSAL outing of the Law of Giving Scam.
Jesus speaking of the Market-place and casting out the musical minstrels LIKE DUNG drew a BLOOD RED ROPE between the Agora or market-place and the ekklesia.
Apollo or the Apollyon of Revelation was the GOD OF THE AGORA and the MUSES or musical worship team known as adulterers were his TEAM. That proves that Satan is the "god" of the marketplace and the MARK is the musicians and singers performing as SORCERERS in Revelation 18.
The Agora was the place where men PREACHED FOR PAY and as rhetoricians it didn't matter whether it was the truth or not, we have defined all of the churches ENABLED to become mega-churches.
The first meaning of PSALLO which is ALWAYS lied about because Apollo was the father of the twanging bow to send forth singing arrows, musical harmony, thieves and liars. NOT such a good foundation to put your OWN money into because if the old "investors" were fleeced the NEW group will be fleeced. Just like Jim Bakker!
The SECOND meaning of PSALLO spoke of the blood-red painted ROPE which forced the people from the Marketplace where Jesus placed the perverted musicians whose New Wineskin god was Dionysus and INTO the ekklesia which was, like the synagogue, for EDUCATION ONLY. Making it a WORSHIP CENTER is the BOAST that they have falllen under the Mother of Harlots (Revelation 17) because THEY know that YOU are not smart enough or ethical enough to resist perverting about ALL Biblical and historical evidence connecting music to Satan, warriors, prostitutes and Sodomites. I will post ANY exception which no one will post.
Satan is Saturn whose Chaldee number is 666. God commanded the Israelites to REST on that day and restricted travel so that they could NOT attend the usual Canaanite Baalism rituals of Star Worship to which God ABANDONED Israel when they demanded a king like the nations so that they could WORSHIP like the nations. REST never meant WORSHIP other than in Paul's ONLY worship concept which means to GIVE ATTENDANCE to the Word of God using the words for SPEAK which excludes the POETIC lies of the rhetoricians and EXCLUDES all forms of Music.
If you DO SABBATH worship you are MARKED as still under the CURSE of the Law which legislated for the Lawless now ABANDONED to what you PLAN to do on the Sabbath.
<font color=red>YOU ARE HERE in the Agora or Kuklos or Circus from which we get CHURCH named after Circe the Holy Whore of John's Revelation.</font>
THIS IS THE MEANING OF PSALLO used to force you FROM the ekklesia into the MARKET-PLACE ruled by Apollyon.<font color=red>EVEN IF YOU ARE DRIVEN TO THE EKKLESIA BY CIVIL AND NON-POLLUTED AUTHORITIES YOU ARE MARKED BY THE RED DEFILING PAINT OF THE PSALLO ROPE: IF YOU REFUSED TO GO THE AUTHORITIES (GOD) WOULD HURT YOU.</font>
Don't doubt it one second: Jesus spoke in parables to HIDE the truth from those who CORRUPT the Word which means "sell learning at retail" and also means "adultery." Surely, you can find a group which does not DELIBERATELY pervert ALL of the Words of God.
Jesus CAST OUT the musical minstrels LIKE DUNG using the same concept applied to "playing the flute, stealing your inheritance, polluting, prostitute as as LUCIFER CAST OUT OF HEAVEN. That is where you are: Jesus has visited TO REMOVE the candlesticks of the Seven Spirits of God related to knowledge which are NOT little people small enough to fit into the preacherling's body.
ON THE DIRECTLY COMMANDED SIDE OF THE PSALLO PARABLE USED TO FOOL THE FOOLS.</font>
The EKKLESIA was for those with TRUTH to speak and any singer or musician would have been BOOTED.
<font color=blue>FINALLY, brethren, pray for us,
that the WORD of the Lord<>
may have free course, and be GLORIFIED, even as it is with you: 2 Th 3:1</font>
Paul's ONLY worship concept is to GIVE HEED to the Word or Sprit and Life from God in Christ.
You have fallen under the CURSE of people who profit by telling you that the WORDS of Christ are OBSOLETE.
This REJECTION of the WORD is defined by Paul in Hebrews 6 as AN UNFORGIVEABLE SIN.
Only those who REJECTED the Word as at Mount Sinai defined in Romans 6 are turned over
to worship the false gods and the wine, women and music is the MARK and the PRODUCER of
beyond redemption sexual perversion. If you sing and dance when they PIPE then you are
initiated into the New Wineskin Worship where MUSIC always meant PERVERSION.
<font color=blue>And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked [Degenerate] men: for all men have not faith. 2 Thess 3:2
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and KEEP you from evil. 2 Thess 3: 3
Now we COMMAND you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that ye WITHDRAW yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly,
and NOT after the tradition [transmission] which he received of us. 2 Thess 3: 6
For yourselves know how ye ought (obligated) to follow us:
for we behaved not ourselves disorderly [insubordinate] among you; 2 Thess 3: 7
Neither did we eat any mans bread for nought;
but wrought with labour and travail night and day,
that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 2 Thess 3: 8</font>
This is POSITIVE PROOF that the church had not OFFICE of a preacher as a DOMINANT PASTOR who has obviously cowed the "elders" who may find themselves in a DOLLAR bind: that is the PLANNED timing of introducing music in the Purpose Driven Cult. Because there is NO LAW OF GIVING you HAD a trust-based-contract. They are required to obey Paul's command to the churches and HONOR the Word. Therefore, because the CONTRACT OF TRUST has been broken, you should not be the ENABLERS of a massive perversion of the truth and sowing of discord which is included in things God HATES.
I am going to pause: you have the Word of God and you have that "decision of Biblical proportion" to make. If you follow those who ABUSE you and EAT UP the living of widows and then DIVERT their love gifts to CONSTRUCT what John Prophesied as the worship of the Mother of Harlots where Apollo's agents USES music and musicians whom John called Sorcerers, that WILL mark you just as those who fell into Musical Idolatry at Mount Sinai were MARKED so that the Levites had no trouble picking out those to be PRUNED from Gods fold.
According to all of the musical passages and The Book of Enoch when you are MARKED you will never remove it. Being BLIND will not excuse you for following the BLIND: you have PROCURED your blindness at a High weekly Ticket Cost.
Jesus sent me to witness and not to whine with you when you are forced to make that choice between FAMILY and approving of INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC.
