What Is the Pattern to Follow?

Just curious - what is the pattern we are supposed to follow?
With certain people's mindsets the way they are today, I could just imagine the following scenario:

Jesus personally appears to these people and tells them that the pattern consists of His teachings and those of His apostles; if they obey His commandments and teachings, He will save them. The people thank Jesus, and He leaves. As soon as He leaves, those same people holler, "Awww, that was just His personal opinion! What's the pattern? Where's the pattern? Show me the pattern!"

These people are like the rich man's brothers in the parable in Luke 16, whom Lazarus said would not be persuaded, even if one rose from the dead.

Jesus rose from the dead, yet if people will neither recognize nor follow His pattern as written in the New Testament, they would not be persuaded, even if Jesus made a personal appearance.

The more I understand and witness to what the site beholds and proclaims, I know that this site is actually anti-Christ.
Donnie, that is what I say.

Kinsley, David R. The Sword and the Flute: Kali & Krsna: Dark Visions of the Terrible and the Sublime in Hindu Mythology. Berkeley: U of California P, 1975.

A clown would stroll in with his livid, floured face, seat himself on the railing, and produce from his bulky pocket a flute which he began to play. At once the ringmaster appeared and intimated to him that here one could not play. The clown, unperturbed, stalked over to another place and stated again. But now the ringmaster walked up angrily and snatched his melodious toy from him.

The clown gone, and plunging his hand into his fathomless pocket produced another flute and from it another melody. But alas, inexorably, here came the ringmaster again, and from it another melody. But alas, inexorably, here came the ringmaster again, and again despoiled him of his flute. Now the clown's pocket turned into an inexhaustible magic box from which proceeded, one after another,
<font color="#FFFFFF">....
new musical instruments of all kinds, clear and gay or sweet and melancholy.
....The music over ruled the veto of destiny and filled the entire space,
....imparting to all of us with its impetuous, invincible bounty a feeling of exultation,
....as thought a torrent of strange energies had sprung from
....the dauntless melody the clown blew on his flute as he sat on the railing of the circus.

Later I thought of this clown of the flute as a grotesque modern form of the great god Pan of the forest whom the Greeks worshipped as the symbol of cosmic vitality--serene,
....goat-footed Pan who plays the sacred syrinx (pan pipes)
....in the sinking dusk and with its magic sound evokes an echo in all things:
....leaves and fountains shiver, the stars begin to tremble,
....and the shaggy goats [cappella] dance at the edge of the grove.
....(qtd. in Kinsley, David R. The Sword and the Flute: 33, n. 49)

-FOOL, also called Jester, a comic entertainer whose madness or imbecility, real or pretended, made him a source of amusement and gave him license to abuse and poke fun at even the most exalted of his patrons. Professional fools flourished from the days of the Egyptian pharaohs until well into the 18th century, finding a place in societies as diverse as that of the Aztecs of Mexico and the courts of medieval Europe. Often deformed, dwarfed, or crippled, fools may have been kept for luck as well as for amusement, in the belief that deformity can avert the evil eye and that abusive raillery can transfer ill luck from the abused to the abuser. Fool figures played a part in the religious rituals of India and pre-Christian Europe, and, in some societies, such as that of Ireland in the 7th century BC, they were regarded as being inspired with poetic and prophetic powers.

The raillery of the fool and his frequent ritual association with a mock king suggest that he may have originated as a sacrificial scapegoat [cappella] substituted for a royal victim. A resemblance between the sacrificial garments of ancient ritual and the costume of a household jester in the Middle Ages..coxcomb, eared hood, bells, and bauble, with a motley coat..has been noted.

The earliest record of the use of court fools dates from the 5th dynasty of Egypt, whose pharaohs attached great value to Pygmies brought from the mysterious lands to the south, apparently employing them as dancers and buffoons. Fools were a part of many wealthy households of imperial Rome, in which imbecility and deformity fetched high prices in the slave markets. References to household fools appear increasingly in records from the 12th through the 15th century. Fools were attached to courts, private households, taverns, and even brothels. In the 18th century, household jesters declined in western Europe but flourished in Russia, and offending courtiers were sometimes degraded to court jesters.

The figure of the fool has also been important in literature and drama. The clown-player in Shakespeare's dramatic company, Robert Armin, was interested in household fools and published a historical account of them in 1605. His knowledge may have influenced the playwright, who produced some of the best-known fools in literature: Touchstone in As You Like It; Feste in Twelfth Night; and the fool in King Lear. See also fool's literature.


As long as the kings / queens can use SCAPEGOATS as jesters, actors or musicians, THEY who are worthy to be a sacrifice or burnt offering (never commanded by God) they can FEND OFF we vandals banging on the doors. That is why they have formed the

Senior Pastor (demoting elders) sect
Removing the vocational deacons who might give him trouble sect
The Theater for holy entertainment sect
Replacing men (masculine) with women (effeminate) sect (more fun at Dunkin Donut)
The ACappella (not a word) MUSES sect
Or the instrumentalist sect

And others to FEND OFF the owners while they steal the church houses of widows.

Anything which destroys the historic Church of Christ as a Word of God Only assembly, proves that they ARE the sorcerers who HAD fooled the world already. They are OLD spirits of the WORLD for which Jesus would not pray or the WISE (Sophists, rhetoricians, singers, musicians, clappers) from whom God HIDES Himself.

SURE WORKS, DOESN'T IT: we wonder why there are so many "spirits" flocking around the pied pipers and the peter pans? Jesus said that Many (most) are called but FEW (almost none) are Chosen to be REMOVED by Jesus Christ who came to seek and save the lost, the soujourners and pilgrims who are NOT OF this world. That's why they will NEVER catch on but the few need to be alerted.

It's also quite ironic that Dave would brand as anti-Christ a site that says the pattern is found in the New Testament, which contains the teachings of Christ and His apostles. I guess Dave is trying to tell us that the pattern lies elsewhere. Or if Dave thinks the pattern DOES reside within the New Testament, then he's just blindly hurling his mean-spiritedness at this site as usual.

Put this garbage in book form and you could make a mint.

Donnie, the list which you posted is a few years old. There are several more that I know of here in Texas. I will not post there names because of reasons I have already stated. I will give some more comments to your thoughts when I have more time.

That means the truth stunned Dave so much that he is at a loss for words. It's just as well.
