Oak Hills Church of Christ Music CreedOak Hills Church of Christ under Max Lucado uses Farmers Branch Church of Christ's totally perverted view of music in Scripture. Notes from Oak Hills and Instrumental Music. Max Lucado got his vision from the Farmer's Branch paper also used by Rick Atchley and Mark Henderson. This is turn has been hand fed from the NACC by men such as Knowles, Johnson and David Faust masking under the theme of UNITY. However, the lust is to get churches of Christ to BEGIN doing music which it has always repudiated and under the name CHURCH OF CHRIST. The Church of Christ was never part of the Disciples denomination and refused to be included in the first count in 1906. The Christian church continued to be DISCIPLES for another decade. Mark Henderson has taken the initiative to ADD instruments at Quail Springs and how could he not and keep up with Max and Atchley. Here is the first part of proof that every statement these men make are deliberte lies: no one could be that deprived of Biblical facts.If this sounds harsh, it is also harsh to steal the church houses of widows and sow discord with a high hand.
The false teaching originated by Lynn Anderson which mislead the elders.
Here is one post reviewing the David Faust's HARD SELL for instruments after being invited to speak about unity. This will link you to others parts of the review. Excuse the graphics but they will prove that the Sacrificial System to which instruments were attached was added as a CURSE because of the Musical idolatry at Mount Sinai and firing God and demanding to worship like the nations meaning Babylonians or Canaanites.Johannes Quasten, verifies all of our claims that NEO-PAGANISM infiltrates all Music-Centered churches.

Music & Wiorship in Pagan and Christian AntiquityThis Web Site has posted original documents for a large number of resources quoted by Quasten. He does not differ from the whole Bible and ALL recorded history that MUSIC in the "holy places" is a MARK that the Candle Stick has been removed.
In the worship bulletin for the Oak Hills Church of Christ (Max Lucado, pulpit minister) on September 5, 1999, (when their guest speaker was Buckner Fanning, of the Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio) the following was printed:
Note that was the day that a BAPTIST PASTOR preached the sermon! Must have earned lots of points and popularity which CANNOT come to one who is faithful to Christ who MUST become "despised and rejected by men." Jesus even now couldn't even give away a book.
"AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE ELDERS
A. Oak Hills Church of Christ Elders?: The elders want to provide you with a statement about a question that may have been raised. That question has to do with the use of musical instruments in our worship.
After many months of careful study and consideration,
the elders unanimously concluded that there is no Biblical prohibition of the use of mechanical instruments in worship.
We believe that they didn't study the Bible. Rather, they were SHEPHERDED by the STAFF and believed what is abut 100% anti-Biblical and anti-Christian. For instance:
B. Farmer's Branch Church of Christ: The Need For This Consideration
This presentation regarding what the leadership of the Farmers Branch Church believes concerning vocal and instrumental musical expression
has been produced as a response to sincere questions posed by genuine disciples who are a part of the heritage of the Churches of Christ.
Of course, this is not usually true: the usual ploy is to VISION and do a survey. The questions are leading and since many churches are CULTS using mind control, most of the flock have been truned into SMELLY SHEEP and know that if they do not BOW when Baal speaks they will lose their RANKING among the "leadership."
We have answered the question: What is the Doctrine of Christ. In that study Christ Himself repudiates as TERMINAL those who would go beyond the CLEAR teachings of Christ which does not support "music" in ANY form: the direct command defines the ONLY way to Glorify God by using ONE MOUTH and ONE MIND to speak "that which is written." The "singing" passages are clearly TEACHING passages which OUTLAW self-composed songs and sermons as the work of sOPHISts (serpents), sorcerers and parasites.
By following Max Lucado to repudiate the Words of Christ the elders have stumbled so as to fall according to Paul in Hebrews 6.
For those who MUST KNOW that not using INSTRUMENTS is not JUST OUR HERITAGE or TRADITION. WHY WOULD PEOPLE SAY SUCH DISHONEST THINGS. IF IN DOUBT, SEE OUR GROWING COLLECTION OF HISTORY. Or if you just enjoy the UNAUTHORIZED GIVING to support such nonesense, good luck.
This is called he Hegelian dialectic used by Machiavelli and Hitler. First, you have to convince everyone that the music issue FLOWS UP from genuine disciples. That is not true: it FLOWS DOWNWARD from preachers who want to be glorified rather than go out and suffer for Christ. The second falsehood is to insert the HERITAGE word. That means "just our old TRADITIONALISM." But, from any literate person this has to be a BIG LIE which flowed up from Lucifer, the harp- playing prostitute.
The big lie is that churches of Christ INVENTED singing without instruments. Therefore, we are just following our legalistic traditional heritage: something we INHERITED from our parents much like Original Sin. The Bible from Genesis to Revelation 18 implicates instruments as the CHANGE AGENTS of Satan because he/she knows that with MUSIC she, indwelling the rhetorical or musical performer can BLEED OFF worship due only to God.
Oak Hills STAFF, not th elders, have decided that there is no LAW against instruments therefore we can be LEGALISTIC by adding them. But, the Bible prohibits music as MIND CONTROL in no uncertain terms and every literate scholar knows that is true.
Because Oak Hills Church of Christ began as a "church of Christ" known to repudiate instrumental music, for the elders to make such a statement PROVES that discord has already been sown and the "church house of widows" has been stolen. Max Lucado has always been a Baptist which means Gnostic in the most extreme way.
A. Oak Hills Church of Christ Elders?: We recognize the issue as a matter of diverse opinion and feel that any discussion in the future should be conducted in a manner that avoids division.
The deliberate SOWING OF DISCORD will be produced by the STAFF dittoed by the elders if they bring in instruments. If YOU object to being run over like an armadillo then YOU will be OUTED as the troubler in Zion.
B. Farmer's Branch Church of Christ: The purpose of this presentation is to set forth what the leadership believes the Lord's will to be for the Farmers Branch Church concerning vocal and instrumental musical expression. The intent of this effort is not to test one's relationship with the Lord, or to define a belief system required for membership in this church, or to despise or judge anyone who does not agree with this position.
Of course, you DO despise those who object and force them to leave or "get over it."
The possibly 5 out of 13,000 congregations which have fallen under the Brazilian Spirit of Max Ludado, Rubel Shelly and a STAFFED "doctors of the law" at ACU, proves that the Farmer's Branch and Oak Hills elders who pretend to get a VISION from God have been wholly seduced by cunning craftsmanship.
Acceptance is not conditioned on any particular view of music.
The intent is to articulate the leadership's view
so that members and especially prospective members
may know the church's position on this matter.
This flexibility results from the belief that music, vocal and/or instrumental, is not a "salvation issue", and thus is not one of the core beliefs of this church.
Bare bones HONESTY would have the elders confess to changing their views and RESIGNING. The grossest dishonesty is to use FORCE as a hostile takeover of a congregation knowing that they cna use their musicians to suck in new fodder or what Hitler called "human material."
This sets up the Hegelian, Machiavellian or Hitleran psychological violence. If YOU think that it was a salvation issue along with Jesus and Paul then YOU have no right to object because it is not the CORE BELIEFS of "this church." The HONEST and CHRISTIAN question is: "Is it based on the Word of Christ?" The answer is no and to any literate Bible student it is ANTI-BIBLICAL and ANTI-CHRISTIAN.
The Heglian dialect discusses YOUR opinion and MY opinion but we will COMPROMISE with MY opinion and then there will be no DIVISION.
A. Max Lucado's vision and Oak Hills Church of Christ Elders?: We merely want to state that CONSENSUS to you today without any PREDICTION of what that might mean to our worship services. Our worship style may or MAY not change, but we are in no hurry to change. We are HIGHLY SENSITIVE to your feelings, and we want to HEAR your THOUGHTS and WISHES.
We have it on the authority of God in Christ that after the end of the Law we can ONLY worship God in the new PLACE of our human spirit as we give heed to the Spirit OF truth.
But just before, the STAFF had stated:
"..the elders unanimously concluded that there is no Biblical prohibition of the use of mechanical instruments in worship.
That means that it WAS NOT UNANIMOUSLY CONCLUDED. Rather the Hegelian BIG LIE and that of the CONFLICT RESOLVERS is that "we agree, that if we disagree, we will take a vote. If the vote is 10 FOR violating DIRECT COMMANDS and there are 9 opposed, we will SUBMIT to the majority, not make a stink and tell everyone that we are UNANIMOUSLY AGREED because ALL of us has agreed to COMPROMISE on basic Biblical Commands. In postmodernism spewing out of ACU and most pseudo-Christian universities, you can TELL A LIE if it is in your interest. "I lied when I said that I didn't have sex with that woman but the media forced me into it."
Of course, they had already used instruments in their Wednesday night "praise services." This is the gradualism of HEGEL or Lynn Anderson in PRAYERFUL BRINKMANSHIP. The intent had always been to introduce instruments IN SPIRIT of the Spirit of Christ. But, you cannot move too fast: you must STAND and then WALK and then SIT.
B. Farmer's Branch Church of Christ:: For some time now, FBCC has occasionally incorporated the use of instrumental music into its Sunday morning assemblies in the form of a solo with an instrumental track or a special event such as a musical.
This has proven to be a unique experience for anyone who has had their faith nurtured in the context of the Churches of Christ which (in regard to most Churches of Christ) have been exclusively a capella in their form of worship.
Sure, and this is DISHONEST and SATANIC just as predicted in Revelation. EXPERIENCE means praxis or practice: if we slowly condition you to doing something TOTALLY ALIEN to YOUR faith and practice then, as a product of MUSIC which creates a morphine- like drug-- some will FIGHT, some will FLEE and some will experience the SEXUAL ECSTASY which has always been the SOLE USEFULNESS OF MUSIC.
This is also how you boil a frog with a smile on his face. Plato noted:
that music and gymnastic be preserved in their original form, and no innovation made. They must do their utmost to maintain them intact. And when any one says that mankind most regard
The newest song which the singers have,
they will be afraid that he may be praising, not new songs,
but a new kind of song;
......and this ought not to be praised, or conceived to be the meaning of the poet
for any musical innovation is full of danger to the whole State,
and ought to be prohibited.
So Damon tells me, and I can quite believe him;-
he says that when modes of music change, the laws of the State always change with them.
Yes, said Adeimantus; and you may add my suffrage to Damon's and your own.
Then, I said, our guardians must lay the foundations of their fortress in music?
Yes, he said; the lawlessness of which you speak too easily steals in.
Yes, I replied, in the form of amusement; and at first sight it appears harmless.
They say that you can BOIL a frog by slowly warming the water. Before the church catches on to the LIES and PERVERSIONS of Scripture and worship, you have been taken captive. The end time SATURN or 666 plays the game of a wandering star and also the HIDDEN GOD.
As the key god as a Wandering Star or planet who will seduce those for whom God will come with ten thousand of His saints SEDUCED the youth into mixed-sex choirs, instrumental music, sleezy dress and homosexuality believed to be the sin in the garden:
Nimrod was known as the god of the Chaldean Mysteries. That name, as we have seen, was Saturn. Saturn and Mystery are both Chaldean words, and they are correlative terms. As Mystery signifies the Hidden system, so Saturn signifies the Hidden god. *
* In the Litany of the Mass, the worshipers ARE TAUGHT thus to pray: "God Hidden, and my Saviour, have mercy upon us." (M'GAVIN'S Protestant) Whence can this invocation of the "God Hidden" have come, but from the ancient worship of Saturn, the "Hidden God"? As the Papacy has canonised the Babylonian god by the name of St. Dionysius, and St. Bacchus, the "martyr," so by this very name of "Satur" is he also enrolled in the calendar; for March 29th is the festival of "St. Satur," the martyr. (CHAMBER'S Book of Days)
The Jewish clergy (like all priesthoods) lusted that John (the priest) and Jesus were agents of Dionysus or Bacchus. Dionysus was the GOD OF THE NEW WINESKIN.
To those who were initiated the god was revealed; to all else he was hidden. Now, the name Saturn in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters, thus--Stur. This name contains exactly the Apocalyptic number 666:--
- S = 060
- T = 400
- U = 006
- R = 200
Alexander the Oracle Monger as typical of all of the pagan Seeker Centers understood that the clergy was just trying to steal from the "worshipers" and also knew along with NIMROD that music was the most powerful weapon or instrument.
"Alexander, on the other hand, preferred his native place, urging very truly that an enterprise like theirs required congenial soil to give it a start,
in the shape of 'fat-heads' and simpletons; that was a fair description, he said, of the Paphlagonians beyond Abonutichus;
they were mostly superstitious and well-to-do; one had only to go there with someone to play the flute, the tambourine, or the cymbals, set the proverbial mantic sieve a-spinning,
........ and there they would all be gaping as if he were a god from heaven.
The first issue of Wineskins set the keynote for the new movement to take the name Jesus Christ (Jehovah-Saved) out and replace it with the generic name of God (which ain't a name):
"Wineskins is committed to the STIMULATION of bold but responsible change in the Church of God." But their commitment is
"not to the church of Christ which started on Pentecost A.D. 33. They say instead, "Our background and commitment is to the Church of Christ that was born of the American Restoration Movement."
One writer warns:
"They are "pious scavengers" who work and sleep neither day nor night as they infiltrate and take over the churches one by one. The church where you meet may already be targeted."
Before POSTMODERNISM now taught by christian schools, we would call that ROBBERY and you would spend many years for FRAUD and THEFT.
A. Oak Hills Church of Christ Elders?: Talk to your elders about it. Your feedback will help us as we intend to offer teaching on this matter.
But, the FIX IS IN: "the elders unanimously concluded that there is no Biblical prohibition of the use of mechanical instruments in worship.
No one doubts that Max Lucado and his TEAM said "we gonna do it and we KNOW that it will deliberately sow discord." But, hay, if we have worked this most of the objectors have already been driven out of THEIR property and we have used old APOLLO's (Abaddon, Apollyon's) LOCUSTS. The musical performers, sent into Sheol because as MUSES they had offended the MOTHER OF THE GODS.
In the Greek world, to sing or Psalm did NOT imply an instrument. If you ODE you sing but if you want to include an instrument there was a UNIQUE word for every form of singing to permit an instrument. For instance, FlutISTS or harpISTS were the soothsayers, prostitutes and therefore PARASITES:
Oidos , ho (and in Paus.10.5.12, hê), contr. for aoidos, singer, chrêsmôn E.Heracl.488 , cf. Phld.Mus.p.20 K., etc.; meta Lesbion ôidon (Lesbion singer), prov. of a second-rate musician, Cratin.243, cf. Arist.Fr.545; hoi tou Dionusou ôi. Pl.Lg.812b ; chorous tinas . . ôidous ib.800e; of cicadae (Locust), hoi huper kephalês ôi. Id.Phdr.262d , cf. AP6.54 (Paul.Sil.); ton alektruona ton ôidon apopnixasa mou Pl.Com.14D. ; hupo ton ôidon ornitha about cockcrow, Poll.1.71.
It was the Lesbians and especially the women who perverted the normal reciting or SPEAKING the words of poets like Homer. They put them to a tune and added instrumental music. This is the only meaning of music in worship: perverted and perverting. The priests as "ministers of the gods" were often emasculated or had a sex change so they could PERFORM in the worship of the homosexual gods and goddesses. The LAST act of worship was "giving of means" but the next to the last act was to reach a sexual climax with the god or goddess THROUGH their "ministers." This is the Vineyard, aka New Wineskin meaning even when it is not overt.

A. Oak Hills Church of Christ Elders?: We are insistent on allowing God, through our prayers, to lead us in all aspects of our church family. --The Elders."
THAT'S NOT TRUE: the decision to MAKE MUSIC was made long ago. NOW, they undoubtedly have some opposition. Therefore WITH A HIGH HAND the unlawful staff (Paul callled them robbers) have USED the elders and SQUEZED out an AGREEMENT. That is supposed to SILENCE the opposition because the elders, as at Madison, were held to be CELESTIAN BEINGS.
B. Farmer's Branch Church of Christ: The leadership believes that music lifted up in praise to God and His Son is an outpouring from the heart of a person filled with the Holy Spirit.
This offering can be vocal, instrumental or both together.
This conclusion is the result of much prayer and considerable study of the Scriptures on this matter.
THEY HAVE NOT EVEN LOOKED AT THE SCRIPTURES WITH OPEN EYES! Paul said, in effect, that such SUPER APOSTLES or sophists can grasp only "fools who love to be fooled."
For us, Jesus said MY WORDS are SPIRIT and they are LIFE (John 6:63). When Paul wrote to the various churches, he OUTLAWED anything which is PLEASURE which excites the human hearts. That was the BURDEN ladened by the Jewish clergy. In Romans 15 he said that the way to GLORIFY God with one MIND and one MOUTH would be to "speak that which is written" and Peter says that was written by the Spirit of Christ (1 Pet 1:11). In Ephesians and Colossians the SPIRIT is the Word of Christ:
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph 5:17
And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled (pleroo) with the Spirit; Eph 5:18
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; (John 6:63 Words = Spirit)

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name (authority) of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
DON'T GET DRUNK WITH WINE is immediately followed with SING AND MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART. The word drunjk or methuo always meant to be PIPED DOWN or FLUTED down just as a modern tavern cannot exist without music:
(4) The Anthesteria. Celebrated for three days in Anthesterion (February to March). On the first day (Pithoigia, or opening of casks) the casks were first opened, and masters and servants alike tasted the new wine.
On the second (Choes, or Feast of Beakers), a public banquet was held, at which a beaker of new wine was set by each guest.
........ This was drunk with enthusiasm, to the sound of trumpets.
Here Dionysus is the god who gives increase and luxuriance to vineyard and tree.
For he is a kindly and gentle power, terrible only to his enemies, and born for joy and blessing to mankind. His gifts bring strength and healing to the body, gladness and forgetfulness of care to the mind, whence he was called Lyaeus, or the loosener of care.
They are ennobling in their effects, for they require tending, and thus keep men employed in diligent labour; they bring them together in merry meetings, and inspire them to music and poetry.
Thus it is to the worship of Dionysus that the dithyramb and the drama owe their origin and development. In this way Dionysus is closely related, not only to Demeter, Aphrodité, Eros, the Graces, and the Muses, but to Apollo, because he inspires men to prophesy.

Clement of Alexandria understood that NOT to mean external MELODY which is a WAREFARE word in its original use:
Again, he commands to eat that which parts the hoof and ruminates; "intimating," says Barnabas,
........ "that we ought to cleave to those who fear the Lord,
........ ........ and meditate in their heart on that portion of the word which they have received,
to those who speak and keep the Lord's statutes, to those to whom meditation is a work of gladness,
........ and who ruminate on the word of the Lord.
A review of the Farmer's Branch "white paper" under Chris Seidman will prove that they PERVERTED every single musical instrument or musical term in the Bible. The man Jesus was indwelled by Father, Son and Spirit. Jesus is the name of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, Farmer's branch is teaching a Shelly - Lucado form of Tritheism or polytheism. By telling everyone that you are CONSULTING WITH THE SPIRIT, when you announce your CARNAL decision, the fools will be intimidated: if THEY say the Spirit speaks to them audibly (Shelly) and Max Lucado GETS VISIONS, who am I to stand up to God. That is the unlawful coercion and extortion.
What can I do? First, TITHING repudiates the death of Christ. Second, be aware that THERE IS NO LAW OF GIVING in the New Testament.
Lay by yourself a sum of money so that you can obey the Direct Command of Jesus that you can give ALMS to those who need it without anyone knowing. The "church" uses u[p about 90% for unlawful purposes which is NO BETTER than the scam tele-marketers. Save your money so that you can take care of your children or help missionaries who are getting squeezed out by HOGS who have no right to "eat up the houses of widows."
The Holy Spirit, beginning in Genesis, has ALREADY led any Bible believer into the knowledge that the SERPENT in the garden came equipped with "wind, string and percussion" instrument. And Paul confirms that the FALL was caused when Eve was WHOLLY SEDUCED in a sexual sense.
The Holy Spirit of Christ has REVEALED how ONE KEY FIGURE will unleash the LOCUSTS with stings in their tails to CHASE AWAY those with the MARK of the Word. The locusts, grasshoppers or cicada were musical performers.
And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. Re.9:10
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. Rev 9:11
And he brings distress to me too, but he shall not win his release; even if he escapes beneath the earth, he is never set free.  A suppliant, he will acquire another avenger from his family.
Note 1: 1 As Agamemnon was slain by Clytaemestra and Clytaemestra by Orestes, so Orestes shall be slain by one of his own race. miastôris properly "polluter."
I. a wretch stained with crime, a guilty wretch, a pollution, Lat. homo piacularis,
The painting of Orestes is the UNIVERSAL meaning of musical warfare.
Out, I order you! Go away from this house at once, leave my prophetic sanctuary,  so that you may not be struck by a winged glistening snake Note 1 shot forth from a golden bow-string, and painfully release black foam, vomiting the clots of blood you have drained from mortals. 
It is not right for you to approach this house; no, your place is where the punishments are beheading, gouging out of eyes, cutting of throats, and where young men's virility is ruined by destruction of seed; where there is mutilation and stoning, and where those who are impaled beneath their spine moan long and piteously. 
Do you hear what sort of feast is your delight? You are detested by the gods for it. The whole fashion of your form sets it forth. Creatures like you should live in the den of a blood-drinking lion, and not inflict pollution on all near you in this oracular shrine.  Be gone, you goats without a herdsman! No god loves such a flock.
Enters from the inner sanctuary.
Note 1 The arrow sped from Apollo's gold-wrought string is called a "winged glistening snake" because it stings like a serpent's bite. There is also a latent word-play: ophis "snake" suggests ios "snake's poison" which also means "arrow."
Ophis a serpent, snake, Il., Hdt., Trag.:--metaph., ptênon ophin, of an arrow, Aesch. [The first syll. is sometimes made long, when it was pronounced (and perh. ought to be written) opphis, v. ocheô.]
The ophis or serpent is the sOPHISts or professional speaker. Heresy means that he uses his skills to STEAL you away for HIS OWN USE:
Haireô or heresy has as its A meaning A take with the hand, grasp, seize, having taken up [the song],II. take, get into one's power, hupnos passions. 2. catch, take, zôon (Zoe), take in hunting, get into one's power, entrap, In a legal sense: kleptonta to convict of theft,
You do know that Jesus died to eleminate "spiritual anxiety created by religious ritual" and that ANXIETY is AEIRO for the purposes of kleptô as in kleptomaniac by the use of secular HYMNING and ODING and playing the KITHERA which made them PARASITES and CYNICS or DOGS--always.
Airô to raise up, exalt, Aesch.:--of passion, to exalt, excite
The word Aeirô has the same basic meaning ofAeidô, of the wind, to twang, of the bowstring to ring, of a stone struck
I. to sing, praise (Attic) Il., etc.:--then of any sound,, Od.; to whistle, of the wind
Anaireô (v. haireô): --take up, anelontes apo chthonos having raised the victim from the ground, so as to cut its throat. This had some connection to Amos 5 and 6 where the musical, perverted festivals were "feasts WITH and FOR dead ancestors."
Apollo already having fallen from heaven, DIGS UP the LOCUSTS. The Muses or Musicians had been the WORSHIP TEAM of Apollo or Abaddon. They upset the MOTHER GODDESS and she turned them into locusts in legend. Now, that they are DUG UP they STING those marked by Apollo's music and DRIVE OUT those marked with the words of Christ.
EXTERNAL Psallo or melody does the sima thing. Because latter day LOCUSTS or agents of Apollyon insist on using the WARRIOR'S meaning of PSALLO or Melody, you know from John's warning that they are here to STING you to spiritual death perhaps because you have already MARKED your own mind with LUST for musical addiction:
Psaô [cf. katapsaô].
I. to touch lightly, rub; II. intr. to crumble away, vanish, disappear
I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. Isaiah 50:6
For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. Psalm 11:2

Alas! a dreadful trial is near, it seems,  full of mourning, rich in tears. Yes, I too escaped death where death had been my due, and Zeus did not destroy me but is still preserving my life, that I may witness in my misery fresh sorrows surpassing all before. But if the bond may ask the free  of things that do not grieve them or wrench their heart-strings, you ought to speak in answer to my questions and I ought to hear what you have to say
Pindar, Nemean. 5 There joyful bands welcome the god with the cry of reed-pipes, and contend with the bold strength of their limbs.
The fortune that is born along with a man decides in every deed. And you, Euthymenes from Aegina, have twice fallen into the arms of Victory and attained embroidered hymns. Truly even now, Pytheas, your mother's brother honors the kindred race of that hero following after you. Nemea is linked to him, and Aegina's festival month which belongs to Apollo. And he was victorious over his peers both at home and in the lovely hollows of the hill of Nisus. I rejoice, because every state strives for noble deeds. Know that through the help of Menander's good fortune you won sweet requital for your toils ..
Psallô [psaô] is the word for MELODY. It meant singing only in the New Testament because OTHERWISE it is the CARNAL WEAPON or LIFELESS INSTRUMENT and intends to grind you into submitting and GIVE OF MEANS:

Circe, the holy whore whose grave was in sight of John on Patmos, seduced SEEKERS with music and drugs or magical enchantments of the sorcerer. After she had MARKED them she turned them into BEAST and often SWINE. Then, as their MINISTER she feed them DUNG patty cakes and they CLANGED for her!
The first thing Satan will do will seduce you into MUSICAL WORSHIP. He knows even from his FALL as Lucifer that SHE must restore FEMINIST worship:
The ACU Agenda: Train Prophetic roles, Channelers and Facilitators the method of subverting the 'hierarchial" views of Jesus and Paul is "Feminist hermeneutics stands over against patriarchal hermeneutics" its goal achieved "by small, often unnoticed acts of SUBVERSION. Numerous such incremental changes, like EROSION, will eventually bring down the FORTRESS " ( WOMEN IN THE CHURCH: Reclaiming the Ideal p. 32).
THE 100% WITNESS OF ALL CHURCH HISTORY
The Apostolic Constitutions, calling themselves the church of Christ but gone apostate still considered professional musicians too effeminate to be church members:
The ancient Christian writers detested performing any religious ritual,
........ especially music and drama, as a profession.
The early lectors and presenters were especially prone to secularizing and performing because they were "professional" worshippers:
> "If a lector learns to play the guitar he shall also be taught to confess it.
If he does not return to it he shall suffer his penance for seven weeks. If he keeps at it he shall be excommunicated and put out of the church. (Canons of Basil, 74)
This was because "Their musical vocation made it possible for them to be more easily led astray in the area of instrumental music than for others.
"The lector may not wear a deacon's stole nor may he use a musical instrument."
> "According to Philo, the gods of the pagans exploit this weakness of men. For the sake of a better effect,
and with the intention of more easily cheating their devotees,
they have set their lies to melodies, rhythms and meters.
> If one belonging to the theatre In the Church of Christ First Century

or one that plays on the pipe, on the lute, or on the harp at those games, or a dancing-master or an huckster,
(2) either let them leave off their employments, or let them be rejected. If a soldier come, let him be taught to "do no injustice, to accuse no man falsely, and to be content with his allotted wages:"
(3) if he submit to those rules, let him be received; but if he refuse them, let him be rejected. He that is guilty of sins not to be named, a
sodomite, an effeminate person, a magician, an enchanter, an astrologer, a diviner, an user of magic verses, a juggler, a mountebank, one that makes amulets, a charmer, a soothsayer, a fortune-teller, an observer of palmistry; he that, when he meets you, observes defects in the eyes or feet of the birds or cats, or noises, or symbolical sounds:
let these be proved for some time, for this sort of wickedness is hard to be washed away; and if they leave off those practices, let them be received; but if they will not agree to that, let them be rejected
ALL KNEW THAT SINGERS AND INSTRUMENTALISTS WERE PERVERTS AND PARASITES who as SUPER APOSTLES wanted to RIDE on the back of the widows. The sOPHISts are the SERPENTS shooting arrows of Abaddon at you:
Huperlian , Adv. beyond measure, exceedingly, sophos Eust.1396.42; to hu. Id.1184.18; hoi hu. apostoloi the 'super-Apostles', 2 Ep.Cor. 11.5, 12.11.

ALL KNOW THAT THE TITHE OR "LAW OF GIVING" USED TO SUPPORT SOPHISTS, SINGERS AND MUSICIANS IS THE WAGE OF JUDAS:
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom (Sophos) of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.1Co.1:19
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 1 Cor 1:20
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 1 Cor 1:21
A BELIEVER is a Baptized person who has "accepted the counsel of God for their lives" by being baptized FOR the remission of Sins. Max Lucado promises salvation to those who have believed in the creation.
The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? Isa 33:14
He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; Isa 33:15
He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Isa 33:16
Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. Isa 33:17
Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver (shaqal)? where is he that counted the towers? Isaiah 33:18
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Ge.11:4
A drought is upon her waters (the Word); and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols. Je.50:38
This drought in Amos 5 and Isaiah 5 brings hunger and thirst for the Word but it CANNOT be found because of the MUSIC.
Based on the temple as a carnal TYPE, the Holy Place is typical of the body or church of Christ. No performance speaker, singer or musician could enter into the temples (as they did in Amos) without being subject to the death penalty.
Mad is Halal (h1984) means TO SHINE or MAKE A SHOW, to celebrate, sing. But it also means to make a fool of yourself. It is the ROOT word for LUCIFER.
The idol os a bigbear. Charismatic speakers and musicians in worship are the OPHIS or serpents or sOPHISts of the book of Revelation. They are at the same time both horrifying and enchanting. They are like a splattered corpse in the middle of the highway: we are repulsed but we look. Charismatic speakers have the same drawing power of a mud wrestler. ANY stage performance intends to promote THE IDOLATRY OF TALET.
I think that Lucadoism has run its course: therefore, we must build a PYRAMID OF POWER to better reach or "lead the worshippers into the presence of God" re Rubel Shelly.
That means that they are BUILDING BIGGER BARNS but they are doomed to fall or be blown away by the WINDS OF CHANGE according to the Legends of Babylon.
Paul outlaws the SCRIBES and the WISE by quoting the Old Testament:
Job says that wisdom is not something you can get:
It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. Job 28:15
Therefore, Isaiah asks the LOGICAL question to remove the JUDAS PRICE from the Word of God:
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Isa 55:2
Spending money for the WORD means that you have a thief equated to Judas, the flute player:
Shaqal (h8254) shaw-kal'; a prim. root; to suspend or poise (espec. in trade): - pay, receive (-r), spend, * throughly, weigh.
Shaqal is the JUDAS WAGE: The Judas Bag was for carrying the mouthpieces of WIND INSTRUMENTS: His bag was the bag of the THIEF.
And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. Zec.11:12
And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord. Zec 11:13
Ophis-teia, sophistry, mantikê, of Balaam, mantikê means divination, soothsayer [Speaking in tongues in Corinth was compared to musical instruments.] They would appear as MANTICS. Philo coined the word for enthusiastic "worship." It is En Thus O Mania.
Playto, Cratylus says "the part of appropriative, coercive, hunting art which hunts animals, land animals, tame animals, man, privately, for pay, is paid in cash, claims to give education, and is a hunt after rich and promising youths, must--so our present argument concludes--be called sophistry. (Ophis is the serpent or Satan in the book of Revelation)
Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon
THOSE LUSTING TO COERCE YOU UNDER THE SKIRTS OF THE SINGERS (OF WHATEVER GENDER) ARE HUNTERS AGAINST GOD JUST AS WAS NIMROD UNDER SATAN.
The word PSALM or PSALMOS does not get you an instrument unless one is named. One who sings WITH ACCOMPANIMENT is always a PERVERT and therefore a parasite.
Paul said SING PSALMS or ODE Psalms (inspired). IF Paul had wanted to give WORK for a professional singe of psalms with the harp, he under the Spirit would have used the word:
Psalmôid-ia, singing to the harp, Aristid.2.310J.
Word with similar definition
Barbit-ôidos , on, singing to the barbiton, Luc.Lex.14.
All fluteISTS or harpISTS or worshipped Dionysus and Zeus and Adonis. Their singing and dancing while PIPING intended, as Jewish Clergy, to force Jesus to BOW which meant to Sodomize Him to prove that He was their lusted after messiah- Dionysus. This was the Abomination of Desolation in the temple.
"Promise Keepers is the gigantic new (1991) "men's movement" among professing evangelical Christians. Its roots are Catholic and charismatic to the core. PK's contradictory stand on homosexuality; its promotion of secular psychology; its unscriptural feminizing of men; its depiction of Jesus as a "phallic messiah" tempted to perform homosexual acts; and its ecumenical and unbiblical teachings should dissuade any true Christian from participating. Promise Keepers is proving to be one of the most ungodly and misleading movements in the annals of Christian history. Nevertheless, Max Lucado is a promoter of this ecumenical, charismatic, psychologized men's movement, as evidenced by his speaking at two 1997 Promise Keepers stadium rallies. A Baptist Site
Psalm 41 prophesied that JUDAS would try to TRIUMPH OVER JESUS. This was "playing wind instruments and 'making a joyful noise before the Lord'." This was EVERYONE'S favorite way to drive the enemy into COWARDICE: just threatening that my GOD can beat your GOD along with the music or noise often drove them into panic. Remember Gideon.
The Jewish Clergy as often perverted worshipers of Dionysus (from the Abomination of Desolation) tried the same thing on Jesus.
The fluteIST carried the JUDAS BAG for carrying "the reeds of wind instruments." Here is the TOTAL picture of people attempting to WORSHIP with MUSIC. The harp is the barbaton: the harpIST is a pervert and a parasite.
Here is the ONLY meaning of the New Wineskin worship. The music, the new wineskin and sexual perversion is the PROJECTED IMAGE whether consciously, subconsiously or UNconsciously. This is why about half of the flock flee for their lives when the new WINE SKINNERS show up
Paul said that the MARK by which you can identify false prophets is how they treat the Word. Peter agreed and outlawed PRIVATE INTERPRETATION which is FURTHER EXPOUNDING. This insults God. Jesus detested the SECTARIANS who were primarily the Pharisees (professional ritualists), Scribe (professional book peddlers about religion) and the SECT of the HYPOCRITES. This included rhetoricians, sOPHISts, singers, musicians and the CRAFTSMEN who organized PROGRAMS. They were SORCERERS and known as PARASITES. MUSICIANS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PARASITES.
Remember, NO INSTRUMENT UNLESS THE INSTRUMENT IS NAMED: The love to lie about MUSIC in the church but it is because Apollo or Abbadon has grabbed them by a sensitive spot. IT IS A LIE. NO ONE can be ignorant of the fact and therefore must be MALICIOUSLY attacking the church because they SEE GODLINESS AS OCCUPATION OR MEANS OF FINANCIAL GAIN. Knowingly or not they are the CHANGE AGENTS FROM HELL.
Here is another word REQUIRED if you accompany a song with a flute:
Hupauleô , play on the flute in accompaniment
........ parasi-tor . a-ri, v. dep. [id.] , to play the parasite, to sponge
........ kômôido-loicheô , play the parasite, peri tina Ar.V.1318 .
The Komo is the perverted song and dance used to try to PERVERT Jesus. The musical perverts in the images above are performing the Komos.
Professional rhetoricians are also the END-TIME resurrection of the SOOTHSAYERS because they can do nothing but PERVERT the Words of Christ FOR A PROFIT. This is why they call themselves PROPHETS.

........ but their heart goeth after their covetousness. Eze 33:31
Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs (minstrel as a prostitute) with a beautiful voice and plays (make melody on) an instrument well,

EXTERNAL melody which Paul outlawed is PSALLO which identifies the INSTRUMENTS OF Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon.

A. psalmoi toxôn E.Ion173 (lyr.);
I forbid you to approach the walls and the golden house. I will reach you with my bow, herald of Zeus, though you conquer  with your beak the strength of all other birds. Here comes another, a swan, to the rim of the temple. Move your crimson foot elsewhere! Phoebus' lyre, that sings with you,  would not protect you from my bow. Alter your wings' course; go to the Delian lake; if you do not obey, you will steep your lovely melody in blood.  Ah, ah! what is this new bird that approaches; you will not place under the cornice a straw-built nest for your children, will you? My singing bow will keep you off.

The dart of love has pierced his heart, love for the frenzied maid.
Pindar, Isthmian 2.  The men of old, Thrasybulus, who mounted the chariot of the Muses with their golden headbands, joining the glorious lyre, lightly shot forth their honey-voiced songs for young men, if one was handsome and had  the sweetest ripeness that brings to mind Aphrodite on her lovely throne.  For in those days the Muse was not yet a lover of gain, nor did she work for hire. And sweet gentle-voiced odes did not go for sale, with silvered faces, from honey-voiced Terpsichore. But as things are now, she bids us heed  the saying of the Argive man, which comes closest to actual truth:  “Money, money makes the man,” he said, when he lost his wealth and his friends at the same time
Humnos A. hymn, ode, in praise of gods or heroes.
The HYMNS commanded for the believer consists os the HALLEL PSALMS and does NOT include singing them for entertainment and excludes that which is NOT "that which is written" (Rom 15)
Jesus and the apostles SPOKE a hymn once in His life in a yearly Passover.
The MUSES were cursed by the MOTHER OF THE GODS, turned into LOCUSTS and sent into hell. APOLLO or Abaddon or Apollyon has RESURRECTED THEM. The Locusts are the MUSICANS of Revelation 18 and they will go back into hell after being used to SEDUCE most of the people into MUSICAL WORSHIP.
The end-time (now) worship is the rise of the BABYLON WHORE who know that Satan or Lucifer. She knows that she only has a short time to SEDUCE the SEA or believers as THE SALT OF TH EARTH. She is powerfully working in most once-Christian institutions who obligingly worshipped her by calling their institution a CHURCH named after the holy whore of John's area: she was CIRCE who seduced with music and sorcery or RHETORICIANS AND SOPHISTS. She the FED them "in song and sermon" with dung pattycakes:
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. Rev 18:21
And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:22
The GRINDERS were also concubines or prostitutes.
1Kings 11:3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
Eccl. 12:3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,
Grinders are usually CONCUBINES or prostitutes.
2912. tachan, taw-khan´; a primitive root; to grind meal; hence, to be a concubine (that being their employment):-grind(-er).

Deipnosophistai 3 lots of flute-girl prostitute parallels,
I know, too, of Polystratus of Athens, nicknamed the Etruscan, and a disciple of Theophrastus, that he used to clothe himself in the garments of the flute-girls.Even princes were often excited over flute-girls and harp-girls, as is made clear by Parmenio in the Letter to Alexander dispatched to him after the capture of Damascus, when he came into possession of Darius's household goods. Having caused an inventory to be made of the captured stuff, he writes also the following:
"I discovered concubines of the king who played musical instruments, to the number of 329; men employed to weave chaplets, 46; caterers, 277; kettle-tenders, 29; pudding-makers, 13; bartenders, 17; wine-clarifiers, 70; perfume- makers, 14."
The instrumentalists appeal to Alexander to prove that PSALLO meant to play instruments: However, ALL of the passages they point to as PROOF speak of older males, like Alexander, who PLUCKED his harp so skillfully that it shamed his father: he was plucking his harp to pluck a young man who had been plucked as "youth minister."
WHY BE WARNED AGAINST FURTHER EXPOUNDERS USING FICTION:
And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 2 Peter 1:18
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 2 Peter 1: 19
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1: 20
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1: 21
You may teach but you MAY NOT further expound or SOLVE FURTHER that which is delivered by the Spirit of Christ:
Epilusis (g1955) ep-il'-oo-sis; from 1956; explanation, i.e. application: - interpretation. Epiluo (g1956) ep-ee-loo'-o; from 1909 and 3089; to solve further, i.e. (fig.) to explain, decide: - determine, expound.
If you have PROCURED one of those, his title is Hupokrinomai. He STINGS you with the arrows of ABADDON through his MUSES.
1 The arrow sped from Apollo's gold-wrought string is called a "winged glistening snake" because it stings like a serpent's bite. There is also a latent word-play: ophis "snake" suggests ios "snake's poison" which also means "arrow."
Ophis a serpent, snake, Il., Hdt., Trag.:--metaph., ptênon ophin, of an arrow, Aesch. [The first syll. is sometimes made long, when it was pronounced (and perh. ought to be written) opphis, v. ocheô.]
If your PREACHER diminishes the Word and does not TEACH it as it has been taught, but uses RHETORIC or is a sOPHISts then he is the CHANGE AGENT OF ABADDON OR APOLLO and music is his/her game:
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Rom 3:13
Their false teaching, lacking honor for Christ and His word is:

Of those who would DIVERT a non-instrumental church into being an instrumental church and taking pay for it as rhetorician or Sophist, the Greek had a word for it: Hypocrites and PARASITES.
Greek Word Search for Mantic These are preachers who GET MESSAGES DIRECTLY FROM THE SPIRIT but they are actually CHANGE AGENTS from Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon.
The MAD or MANTIC which describes the singing, speaking and praying in Corinth meant that they thought that TRUTH ONLY CAME THROUGH THEM:
The gods have prescience (498); but they impart it to no man, --not even to such ministers as the Delphian priests Iocasta reveres the gods
The mantis might be a man who reads signs from birds, fire, etc., by rule of mystic science: it was against this technê that scepticism most readily turned: Eur. El. 399 Loxiou gar empedoi ch7x; chrêsmoi, brotôn de mantikên chairein legô. Iocasta means:
"I will not say that the message came through the lips of a truly god-possessed interpreter; but at any rate it came from the priests; it was an effort of human mantikê." So in 946, 953 theôn manteumata are oracles which professed to come from the gods.
ANYONE who claims that the separated SPIRIT PERSON is going to CONFIRM the staff's prior decision is one of the LOCUSTS from hell.But the Holy Spirit does not speak His own things, but those of Christ, and that not from himself, but from the Lord; even as the Lord also announced to us the things that He received from the Father.For, says He, "the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's, who sent Me."
And says He of the Holy Spirit, "He shall not speak of Himself, but whatsoever things He shall hear from Me."
And He says of Himself to the Father, "I have," says He, "glorified Thee upon the earth; I have finished the work which, Thou gavest Me; I have manifested Thy name to men." And of the Holy Ghost, "He shall glorify Me, for He receives of Mine."
But the spirit of deceit preaches himself, and speaks his own things, for he seeks to please himself. He glorifies himself, for he is full of arrogance.
He is lying, fraudulent, soothing, flattering, treacherous, rhapsodical, trifling, inharmonious, verbose, sordid, and timorous.
Ignatius warns about people who TRUST IN RICHES AND FAME and wrote;
Chapter XV.-Exhortation to Confess Christ by Silence as Well as Speech.
It is better for a man to be silent and be [a Christian], than to talk and not to be one. It is good to teach, if he who speaks also acts.
There is then one Teacher, who spake and it was done; while even those things which He did in silence are worthy of the Father.
He who possesses the word of Jesus, is truly able to hear even His very silence, that he may be perfect, and may both act as he speaks, and be recognised by his silence.
There is nothing which is hid from God, but our very secrets are near to Him.
Let us therefore do all things as those who have Him dwelling in us, that we may be His temples, and He may be in us as our God, which indeed He is, and will manifest Himself before our faces. Wherefore we justly love Him.
In like manner, every one that has received from God the power of distinguishing,and yet follows an unskilful shepherd,
and receives a false opinion for the truth,
........ shall be punished.
"What communion hath light with darkness? or Christ with Belial? Or what portion hath he that believeth with an infidel? or the temple of God with idols? " And in like manner say I, what communion hath truth with falsehood? or righteousness with unrighteousness? or true doctrine with that which is false?
God never has GRACE for those who allow themselves to be led by blind leaders.
Lucifer [Zoe] came into the garden with WIND [pipe], STRING [harp] and PERCUSSION [drums] instruments. That is exactly what God will use when he is pouring out His WRATH and driving people into the PIT while they are whistling in the cemetary making fun of all those who are not having all of the fun. Israel wanted to WORSHIP LIKE THE NATIONS and God TURNED THEM OVER to it according to Stephen etc., etc..
And his breath, as rushing water in a valley, reach reach as far as the neck, and be divided, to confound the nations for their vain error; error also shall pursue them and overtake them. Isaiah 30:28 LXX
This is the warning of the harps of God in Revelation which Max Lucado and friends used to prove their false doctrine. All of these "sounds" create panic and the next angel to those still living is to "preach the gospel."
Must ye always rejoice, and go into my holy places continually, as they that keep a feast? and must ye go with a pipe, as those that rejoice into the mountain of the Lord, to the God of Israel Isaiah 30:29 LXX
and the Lord shall make his glorious voice to be heard and the wrath of his arm, to make a display with wrath and anger and devouring flame: he shall lighten terribly, and his wrath shall be as water and violent hail. Isaiah 30:30 LXX
For by the voice of the Lord the Assyrians shall be overcome, even by the stroke where with he shall smite them. Isaiah 30:31 LXX
And it shall happen to him from every side, that they from whom their hope of assistance was, in which he trusted, themselves shall war against him in turn with drums [PERCUSSION] and with harp. [STRING] Isaiah 30:32 LXX
Here is that PIT people are LUSTING to enter:
For thou shalt be required before thy time: has it been prepared for thee also to reign? nay, God has prepared for thee a deep trench, wood piled fire and much wood: the wrath [spirit] of the Lord shall be as a trench kindled with sulphur. Isaiah 30:33 LXX
Isa 1411 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: [string] the worm is spread under thee, and the maggots cover thee.
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isaiah 30 exlains he ONLY reason Topheth or hell was provided. The Marks of God driving them into hell is wind, string and percussion instruments. Revelation 17 defines the Mother of Harlots, the FRUITS they lusted after and the rhetoricians, singers and instrument players as SORCERERS Rev 18. They HAD dedeived the whole world and removed the CANDLES which will never be restored.
