Elders Exercise Command Authority:
Elders. Elders are beginning to insist that the congregation
must "obey" their command rulership "even if we teach false
doctrine." Their followers actually identify them as
"celestial beings" which must not be questioned. Elders rule
by teaching and disciples obey by conforming to the teaching
but only to the extent that the elders "teach that which has
been taught." Obedience is to the teaching and the "outcome
of the lives of the elders." Elders are not elected but
identified as those "already laboring to the point of
exhaustion in teaching and preaching." Elders increasling
follow the Saddle Back or Purpose Driven Cult in levels of
membership and the signing of covenants.

ONE God. The 1940's view of God as a family, clan or

(people) but I am not god; my dog has personality but he is
not God. The writers did not use the word person but
personae. That is, the ONE, undividedGod manifests
Himself in three images. At time, He is Arm, Door or Way but
these are personificatons. We will look at most of the major
historical writings about the Godhead but never find three

"Music" is never
used in the Bible to describe spiritual worship to God.
Rather, the Greek Sumphonia speaks of true music which in
the classics is often defined as "singing and dancing."
Music defines the end-time Babylonian Harlot worship as it
defined the beginning Babylonian religion at the towers of
Babylon. Paul never commanded "singing" as we know it.
Rather, his often direct command is to "teach one another"
and the only resource available to us is "that which has
been written" (Rom 15), The Spirit (Eph 5) which Jesus said
is His Word (John 6:63) and "the word of Christ" (Col. 3).

In 1987 the Pope

Shelly, Steve Flatt formed the Jubilee Corporation to
promote the urge for an ecumenical church which if not
organized with would recognize a one world religion. The
CORE gospel and the Post Modern, Post Biblical view made it
difficult to throw away old views and form a music to
restructure churches of Christ around a Gnostic structure.
To that end they organized huge gatherings to teach people
how to "raise holy hands, clap hands, lay on hands, sing and
play instruments around the Asherah poles" and a host of
efforts in an attempt to fracture the old churches of Christ
and give them a second incarnation as a neo-pagan system.
The Jubilee implies a need for an atonement which one
gained, like the Catholics, by attending the mass meetings
and denouncing the old churches. This Jubilee pattern
includes the idea of breaking up the ownership of individual
property and returning it to the "tribal groups."

Christians are tempted to skip the real story and see the

time the Jewish scholars rejected their traditions and
returned to the Old Testament. They were quite astounded to
find that the Law had been added because of transgression
and the Temple was "like the nations" or a pagan temple
because that is what the Israelite demanded to go along with
their human king.
