The Tulsa Workshop 2011 Warning

Rick Atchley The Law of Silence
  1. If you say that The Spirit OF Christ in the Prophets and Apostles did not condemn instrumental music and all of the hypocritic arts and crafts of the Scribes  and Pharisees.
  2. And The Spirit of Christ define the future reign of Messiah both inclusively and exclusively to exclude the hypocrites.
  3. Then the Spirit of Messiah says that you blaspheme the Holy Spirit of Christ (the only one)
Tulsa Workshop 2011 The theme will be "Unchained!" "If the Son makes you free, then are you free indeed! However, Peter outlawed private interpretation or further expounding which would be the ancient sin warned about by Ezekiel of "turning God's Word into a song."  Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites..  He quoted Isaiah but the same message from Christ in Ezekiel 33 where he named rhetoricians (key noters), singers and instrument players.  7.08.11 Anyone who claims that God "commanded instrument praise" has blasphemed by the Spirit of Christ who denied that sacrifiices or burnt offerings had been commanded. Anyone who claims that Christ was silent in the Prophets, in His fulfilling of musical mocking prophecies, by His use of "ekklesia" or synagogue, or that  the epistles always warn against the hypocrites and cunning craftsmen who always use music to derange the mind and "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter" simply has not and probably cannot read black text on brown paper. The mark of strong delusions are lying wonders which are religious services claiming to speak for God through what Christ identified as the hypocrites: speakers, singers and instrument players. Hypocrite also points to rhetoricians who rely on the works of their own mind or hand and speak on behalf of Christ whom Peter affirms HAS made the prophecies more certain. The mark is that such people cannot or will not read Christ in the prophets.

Review of Truitt Adair's review of Rick Atchley.  Preachers are shooting blanks and keeping their career path safe as long as they agree that Amos (by the Spirit of Christ) condemned only their "attitude." And as long as they say that God commanded anything in the cursed king, kingdom, temple, sacrificial system at which they made exorcism noises never called music. The church is built upon the Prophets and Apostles all who radically condemn the the Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers, parasites and hypocrites (defined as speakers, singer and instrument players). There is NO historic scholar who did not agree that Amos was condemning the use of instruments in Samaria.

When Ahaz took the sacrifices and noise (never music) outside of Jerusalem he violated God's law which quarantined the horrors behind closed doors .  If you become a Levite singer outside of the Temple in Jerusalem the PATTERN is that God will send a plague upon you.

I have radically updated my review of Terry Rush's against the Bible based churches.
I have spent a bit of time looking at the direct commands to SPEAK or READ the works of the Prophets by Christ and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus of Nazareth through the Apostle. Men like Peter left a written history of his eye-- and ear-- witness of Jesus certifying the gospel prophesied beforehand. He outlawed private interpretation or further expounding. It comes as no surprise that those who corrupt the Word by selling at retail can easily be deluded, sent strong delusions so they can neither see, hear or confess the simplies of truth. Just as narrowly circumscribed in Isaiah 58 in promise, Jesus affirmed the CENI for disciples who have been baptized INTO DISCIPLESHIP to the Word:
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
        All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Notice the imperative to GO: all honest evangelists will GO.  Because God's Word is affirmative and assertive no disciple could whine that "but, He didn't say I could NOT teaching our of my own head." No one who can think that music was ever used at any time or place by God's holy synagogue and understand either the meaning of "Christian", Church or Disciple. Disciple do not do pagan ceremonial legalism. That is why the unique worship word for us is to give heed to the Word of God:

 Grace Centered Magazine:  3.06.11. This forum has a Church of Christ thread dedicated to abusing those who do not deliberately reject the clear teaching of the Word and recorded history. A common lie is that the Church Fathers had nothing bad to say about the use of instruments based on Scripture. We have refuted that to prove that NO ONE used instruments in the churches but refute the Jews who did because they had been abandoned to Canaanite Baalism or the worship of the starry host.

See Jay Guin Review for the list of New Wineskins papers.

WHY WOULD PEOPLE WORK SO HARD TO FOOL SO MANY PEOPLE INTO REPEATING THE MUSICAL FALL FROM GRACE AT MOUNT SINAI?  Easy, perhaps as the meaning of strong delusions marked by musical and theatrical worship always gender confused, they cannot or WILL not read the always-instrumental falls from grace. Why does God consider people using their anti CENI "vain imagination" who exhibit such an effeminate view of the meaning of GOD worthy of being saved.  Surely, spiritual blindness would be better than being used by an EVIL spirit.

Edward Fudge give a vivid view of those who begin INSTITUTES to further the Church of Christ suddenly wake up and say, SURPRISE! SURPRISE!  WE have changed YOUR agenda. Wade Hodges confessed the agenda as UNITY with the NACC: the same NACC who had moled into workshops and universities and presented their WHITE PAPER as to why WE will "union" with YOU if you Affirm or Confirm to the use of instrumental music.  Of course, the most destructive lie of the 20th century was that the Church of Christ sected out of the Christian Church and therefore, were divisive and sectarian.

THERE WAS NEVER ANY ORGANIC CONNECTION BETWEEN THE DISCIPLES/CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.  If that is true then those TASKED by the NACC to dupe those who are dupable into "infiltrating and diverting" happy congregations into being musical and and THEREFORE sectarian have build on a lie.  Both liars and musical agents have a place prepared for them.
Edward Fudge: Despite the high-sounding name, I thought it really was about increasing the membership of the Churches of Christ (non-instrument), primarily by convincing people in other denominations to switch to our non-denomination as the more certain route to heaven --although nobody was all that certain about it, but at least we were not a "denomination" (rhymes with "abomination").

Then one day the folks in charge realized they were thinking (though they didn't know it, and I didn't know it and had absolutely nothing to do with it happening) many of the same things that I was thinking about what the Workshop was, and wasn't, and should be.

So they changed accordingly. And many of the buses stopped coming, and several thousands of the people stayed home. And the folks in charge, who had been working hard, and sacrificing, and pouring themselves out all along in what they thought was right, now kept working hard and sacrificing and pouring themselves out in what they and I alike thought was better, and in 2008 they invited me to join the mix and add my two cents worth, which I gladly did.

        and I look forward to the bold proclamations and faithful testimonies and hair-raising, heart-grabbing, mind-blowing reports (plus those without any of those adjectives) of God at work through the Holy Spirit as he draws people to Jesus Christ, then transforms, equips and uses them as the cycle is repeated and repeated and repeated again.

No historic trinitarian was so blasphemous as to teach that the Spirit OF Christ was another person defined as a "people" with his own centerof consciousness and abilities.  It is not possible to read the Bible in context and see other that there is:
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.
This is clearly NOT the views of any historic scholar. For instance:

Alexander Campbell and others understand that A holy spirit is OUR unholy spirit which has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ and not His "spirit."

This is...understood by every attentive reader. The original phrase is hagiasmos pneumatos, and is found only in II. Thess. ii. 13; I. Pet. i. 2. In both places it appears to refer to the sanctification of the spirit of believers.   It is literally rendered "sanctification [or holiness] of spirit." There is no article in the original and no epithet that suggests the Holy Spirit in either passage. 

God has chosen men to salvation through (or by) holiness of spirit;
not through the holiness of his Spirit,
        but through the holiness of their spirit.

When Jesus prayed (John xvii.) for the sanctification or holiness of his disciples,
          it was through the truth: "Sanctify them through the truth;
          thy word is truth."

The belief of the truth is, therefore, by Paul associated with this holiness or sanctification of spirit.

The Spirit of God is frequently denominated in these days, "the Sanctifier." Let it be granted that it is the Spirit that sanctifies or sets apart men to God, still it must be argued from the Record  
        that he sanctifies them only through the truth or gospel believed.
A sanctified unbeliever is inconceivable;
        and, as "without holiness [or sanctification of spirit] no man can see the Lord;
        so, without faith, there can be no holiness, and no action acceptable to God.

All persons sanctified to God to any high office or function, were anointed, and thus consecrated to his special service. So all Christians, being priests, 

        are anointed or sanctified by the Holy Spirit 
       [135] through the obedience of the truth,
        and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus,
        cleansing their consciences from dead works to serve the living God.
Never trust anyone who gains their credibility by saying that A spirit told him that "God commanded instrumental praise and YOU had better not be disobedient."
Firstly, The NAME of the Holy Spirit is "Jesus Christ the Righteous" (1 John 2). He finished His Word and left the GOSPEL as the onlly power to bring us to God.

John 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
John 6:44 No man can come to me,
        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.

No one who has read the Bible believes that the Spirit OF God is another PEOPLE between the ONE God the Father in heaven and Jesus of Nazareth whom God MADE TO BE both Lord and Christ.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, (By Christ the Spirit 1 Pet 1:11; 2 Cor 3; Rev 19:10)
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,

                and hath learned of the Father,
                cometh unto me.

John says that it is an ANTI-Christ who denies that simple Father-Son relationship without another MEDIATOR who speaks to Edward Fudge "beyond the sacred pages.."

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:
        and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people.
        And the Lord added to the church daily such as were being saved.
John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father,
        save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.


John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you,
        He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Be careful what you TASTE: Jesus said HIS Words were the food and water given free of charge (Isaiah 55) and Christ commanded you NOT to speak your own words or seek your own pleasure (Isaiah 58).

The fruits PLUCKED in Amos, Isaiah and Revelation may be dangerous. See Isaiah 50

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
        the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life.

You may not want to go out and be slathered all over by praise teams making you expose your secret desire to be a woman.

Ancient literature from Babylonian tablets and beyond agree with Johannes Quasten. In Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, beginning on page 41 He uses many of the church Fathers and Classical resources we also rely upon:

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.

Accordingly, nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

Similar opinions may be found in the writings of Philo. On one occasion he spoke of the Jewish "Feast of Fasting," used by the Greeks for the Day of Atonement:

"Now, many a man from the false religions, which are not ashamed of criticising what is noble, will ask: how can there be a feast without carousing and overeating, without the pleasant company of hosts and guests, without quantities of unmixed wine, without richly set tables and highly stacked provisions of everything that pertains to a banquet, without pageantry and jokes,

bantering and merry-making to the accompaniment of flutes and citharas, the sound of drums and cymbals and other effeminate and frivolous music of every king,

enkindling unbridled lusts with the help of the sense of hearing. For in and through the same [pleasures] those persons openly seek their joy, for what true joy is their they do not know.

Women's singing was a vital part of all pagan worship. In very early times women became priestly singers of the gods in the temple.

"Women and girls from the different ranks of society were proud to enter the service of the gods as singers and musicians. The understanding of this service was universal: these singers constituted the 'harem of the gods'." (End of Quasten)

And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. Deuteronomy 8:17

And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. Deuteronomy 8:19

Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 8:20

THAT'S WHY THE BUSSES QUIT RUNNING as people have reported the embarassing 'musical worship teams' the most heretical concept in our end times.

 George Girardeau speaking for all knowledgeable Bible students    

In the first place, it will be noticed from the account of the triumphant rejoicing on the shore of the Red Sea that the men sang only: "Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying," etc. What can be gathered from this simple singing of the males of Israel, in praise of God for their great deliverance, in favor of instrumental music in worship, it is rather difficult to see.

In the second place, it was Miriam and the women who used instruments of music on the occasion: "And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went after her with timbrels and with dances."

See Exodus 32 as the PATTERN of all falls from Grace: all falls were the result of imposing musical instruments (machines for doing hard work mostly in making war or creating the shockand awe of religious spectacles used to fleece the lambs.

In Exodus 31 God warned against letting loose or lose custody of singing, playing and being entertained when the assembly was Called.
    In Exodus 32 the people depending on God's SILENCE to permit their IMAGINATION rose up to play in musical Idolatry.
In Deuteronomy 31 Moses defined SONGS as to be SPOKEN for instruction from God (only):
In Deuteronomy 32 in the SECOND LAW the musical idolatry was repeated.
  1. Individuals are Disciples (only) of Christ (only) and only when the elders SPEAK and teach that which has been taught.
  2. It is logical that the doctors of the Law whom Jesus said "take away the key to knowledge" insist that God DOES not speak: rather "a" spirit tells them that they can fabricated their own Commands, Examples and Necessary Inferences IF you want to be their disciple.
  3. If your shepherds fail to warn you and you FALL into the Devil's trap (His children speak on their OWN) you will never get up.
  4. God abandoned the Israelites to be destroyed by their own people and sentenced the rest to "worship the starry host."
Deut 31:21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them,
        that this song shall testify against them as a witness;
        for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed:
        for I know their imagination which they go about,
        even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.
  • All false teachers who claim that a "spirit" gives them the authority to speak and impose where God has been silent.
  • That is proof that they cannot read and just make laughingstocks of themselves and their disciples.
  • Paul said of the Corinthians that fools love to be fooled because they have no love for the truth.
  • They will hurt you in more ways you can imagine if you tamper with "god's anointeds."
  • God says that no human has the wisdom to ADD to the Word of God:

Notice that Paul often uses forms of parallelism

II. Antithetical Parallelism--The thought of the first line is expressed by an antithesis in the second; or is counterbalanced by a contrast in the second. This parallelism is very common in the Book of Proverbs:

(a) The tongue of the wise adorneth knowledge,
{but} The mouth of the fool blurteth out folly.
Prov., xv, 2.
(b) Soundness of heart is the life of the flesh,
{but}Envy is the rot of the bones.
--Proverbs 14:30.

The thoughts of the righteous are right,
But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. Proverbs 12:5 (NKJV)

The word SPEAK is the opposite of POETRY or MUSIC. Therefore,

Eph. 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise,
        but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Eph. 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;
        but be filled with the Spirit;
Eph. 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
        {but} singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Eph. 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

This is true because you cannot SPEAK and SING at the same time in an external sense.
John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain;
        and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,
        when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
        when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
        for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
        must worship him in spirit and in truth.

You cannot worship a Spirit God in houses built by human hands or by the works of human hands.
Phil. 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
Phil. 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus,

Well, then, thought and speech are the same;
        only the former, which is a silent inner conversation of the soul with itself,
has been given the special name of thought. Is not that true?


But the stream that flows from the soul in vocal utterance through the mouth has the name of speech

1.04.11 When people speak out of their own imagination instead of the Word as Spirit by Christ in the Prophets and Apostles, Christ calls it blasphemy.  Of Hezekiah's Plague stopping exorcism used to say that "God commanded instrumental praise and we must not be disobedient" Christ calls them BLASPHEMERS.

See Christ defining Blasphemy of The Holy Spirit

1.13.11 RICK ATCHLEY WILL BE AT TULSA 2011: Rick imposed instruments into a church: if instruments do not condemn you God hates those who sow discord:

Those imposing musical instruments build their faith on the Levites defined by the Scribes: Jesus defined them as hypocrites and Christ in the Ezekiel 33 example named speakers, singers and instrument players.

The first two reasons assert that under the Old Testament, God did not just allow instrumental music, He commanded and blessed it. Rick offered the following passages for these contentions: 2 Chronicles 5:13-14; 7:6; 29:25-26; Psalm 33:1- 3; 92:1-3; 150:1-6.

Never mind that the godly tribes were quarantined. No singer or player went INTO or NEAR a holy thing or place on the penalty of death. Some of these patterns are separated from the last by up to 300 years.


Stand in the gate of the Lords house [courts], and proclaim there this word,
        and say, Hear the word of the Lord, all ye of Judah,
        that enter in at these gates to worship the Lord. Jeremiah 7:2

Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
        Amend your ways and your doings,
        and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Jeremiah 7:3 

Trust ye not in lying words, saying,
        The temple of the Lord, The temple of the Lord,
        The temple of the Lord, are these. Jeremiah 7:4

Jer. 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is WITH US?
        THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS in vain.

For I spake NOT unto your fathers, nor commanded them
        in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt,
        concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: Jeremiah 7:22

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John,  

That the Pharisees puffed up unto strange boasting,
        were wont to pretend that the Divine Word was with them and in them,
        and therefore foolishly affirmed that they had advanced to marvellous wisdom, 
        the Spirit Itself will testify, 
        since Christ says by the Prophet Jeremiah unto them, 
                How do ye say, WE are wise, and the word of the Lord is with us?
                For nought to the scribes became their lying pen;
                the wise
men were ashamed, were dismayed and taken;
                what wisdom
is in them? because they rejected the word of the Lord.

For how are they not taken rejecting the Living and Hypostatic Word of God,
         receiving not the faith to Him-ward, 
         but dishonouring the Impress of God the Father,
         and refusing to behold His most true Form (so to say)
         through His God-befitting Authority and Power?


John 6:44 No man can come to me,
        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

2Pet. 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words
        which were spoken before by the HOLY PROPHETS
        and of the commandment of us the APOSTLES of the Lord and Saviour:

IT WAS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST WHO SPOKE THROUGH THE PROPHETS AND NOT LYING SCRIBES whom He called hypocrites by naming speakers, singers and instrument players in Ezekiel 33.

    1Pet. 1:10 Of which salvation the PROPHETS have inquired and searched diligently,
            who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
    1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time
            the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
            when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ,
            and the glory that should follow.    

God did NOT speak through the lying pen of the Scribes who recorded the Monarchy which God had NOT commanded.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us BY HIS SON
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the WORD of his power,
        when he had by himself purged our sins,
        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high

THOSE WHO DELIBERATELY SOW DISCORD BY QUOTING THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES (hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players) are defined by the Spirit:

Jer. 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
        Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you:
        they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart,
        and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

Jer 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me,
        The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace;
        and they say unto every one that walketh
        after the imagination of his own heart,
        No evil shall come upon you.

3. Christ in Jeremiah defines that as blasphemy

John called the slick speakers, singers and instrument players in Revelation 18 SORCERERS. John said they HAD deceived the whole world. They were lusted after fruits working for the Babylon Mother of Harlots (Rev 17).  This is the final destiny of the ENEMIES of God whom Christ in Isaiah 30 warned about. The MARKS in sight and sound will be the wind, string and percussion instruments Lucifer--the original singing and harp-playing prostitute brought with him/her when created or "cast as profane out of heaven."

See Isaiah 30 for the Sights and Sounds of driving His enemies into "hell" while still breathing--consumed by the breath (spirit) of their own mouths.

Those who would use magic to steal the church house of widows will show you how to CHAIN others using music.

Jesus Christ UNCHAINED us FROM the Scribes and Pharisees whom He marked as speakers, singers and instrument players.  ALL of the prophets which is the side of Christ repudiate those promising people liberty but intentionally making them slaves to the "watch towers" all of which are doomed to fall: the MARKS of God repaying His enemies and driving them into "hell" are the sounds of wind, string and percussion instruments Lucifer--the singing and harp playing prostitute--brought into the garden of Eden to wholly seduce Eve in a sexual sense says Paul.

Dionysos is the Greek God of ritual dance and sacred mysticism, of death and new life. He can be gentle or provoke the wildness within us all, literally able to drive both his followers and his enemies mad. Euripedes called him 'most gentle and most terrible'. Dionysus is the patron of poetry, the song, and drama, and of course wine and its intoxication effects. He was credited with the invention of wine making and its use on Earth and this became almost his chief attribute in his Roman form - Bacchus. Unlike Pan for instance, Dionysus is counted as one of the twelve major Gods of Mount Olympus.

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 substituted for a royal victim.

.. this god is a prophet; the Bacchic ecstasy
And frenzy hold a strong prophetic element.
When he fills irresistibly a human body
He gives those so possessed power to foretell the future."

"In intoxication, physical or spiritual, he recovers an intensity of feeling which prudence had destroyed; he finds the world full of delight and beauty, and his imagination is suddenly liberated from the prison of everyday preoccupations. The Bacchic riual produced what was called 'ENTHUSIASM',which means etymologically having the god ENTER the worshipper, who believed that he became one with the god."

The only "legalism" term in the Greek language defines teaching the laws of Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) with music which enchains: John called it sorcery.  The Disciples confess that "tradition" is one of the ways the Holy Spirit speaks to them:

Why, yes, and a far more marvellous one than the satyr. His lips indeed had power to ENTRANCE mankind by means of instruments; a thing still possible today for anyone who can PIPE his tunes: or the music of Olympus' flute belonged, I may tell you, to Marsyas his teacher. "So that if anyone, whether a fine flute-player or paltry [cheap, easy] flute-girl, can but flute his tunes, they have no equal for exciting a RAVISHMENT, and will indicate (prophesy) by the divinity that is in them who are apt recipients of the deities and their sanctifications

You differ from him in one point only--that you produce the same effect with simple prose unaided by instruments. For example, when we hear any other person--[215d] quite an excellent orator, perhaps--pronouncing one of the usual discourses, no one, I venture to say, cares a jot; but so soon as we hear you, or your discourses in the mouth of another,--though such person be ever so poor a speaker, and whether the hearer be a woman or a man or a youngster--we are all astounded and entranced. As for myself, gentlemen, were it not that I might appear to be absolutely tipsy, I would have affirmed on oath all the strange effects I personally have felt from his words, and still feel even now.

Yet Poseidon laughed not, but ever besought [345] Hephaestus, the famous craftsman, to set Ares free; and he spoke, and addressed him with winged words: “Loose him, and I promise, as thou biddest me, that he shall himself pay thee all that is right in the presence of the immortal gods.” Then the famous god of the two strong arms answered him: [350] “Ask not this of me, Poseidon, thou earth-enfolder. A sorry thing to be sure of is the surety for a sorry knave. How could I put thee in bonds among the immortal gods, if Ares should avoid both the debt and the bonds and depart?” Then again Poseidon, the earth-shaker, answered him:[355] “Hephaestus, even if Ares shall avoid the debt and flee away, I will myself pay thee this.” Then the famous god of the two strong arms answered him: “It may not be that I should say thee nay, nor were it seemly.” So saying the mighty Hephaestus loosed the bonds [360] and the two, when they were freed from that bond so strong, sprang up straightway. And Ares departed to Thrace, but she, the laughter-loving Aphrodite, went to Cyprus, to Paphos, where is her demesne and fragrant altar. There the Graces bathed her and anointed her with [365] immortal oil, such as gleams1 upon the gods that are forever. And they clothed her in lovely raiment, a wonder to behold.

Pind. P. 3 [45] and he bore the child away and gave him to the Magnesian Centaur to teach him to heal many painful diseases for men. And those who came to him afflicted with congenital sores, or with their limbs wounded by gray bronze or by a far-hurled stone, [50] or with their bodies wasting away from summer's fire or winter's cold, he released and delivered all of them from their different pains, tending some of them with gentle incantations, others with soothing potions, or by wrapping remedies all around their limbs, and others he set right with surgery. But even skill is enthralled by the love of gain. [55] Gold shining in his hand turned even that man, for a handsome price, to bring back from death a man who was already caught. And so the son of Cronus hurled his shaft with his hands through both of them, and swiftly tore the breath out of their chests; the burning thunderbolt brought death crashing down on them. We must seek from the gods what is appropriate for mortal minds, [60] knowing what lies before our feet, and what kind of destiny we have. Do not crave immortal life, my soul, but use to the full the resources of what is possible. But if wise Cheiron were still living in his cave,
        and if our honey-voiced odes [65] had cast a spell on his spirit,

Ephraim Syrus On Our Lord.

6. But Israel crucified our Lord, on the plea that verily He was seducing us from the One God. But they themselves used constantly to wander away from the One God through their many idols. While then they imagine they crucify Him Who seduces them from the One God, they are found to be led away by Him from all idols to the One God;

to the end that because they did not voluntarily learn of Him that He is God, they might by compulsion learn of Him that He is God; when the good which had accrued to them through Him should accuse them concerning the evil which their hands had done. Thus even though the tongue of the oppressors denied, yet the help with which they were helped convicted them.
For grace loaded them beyond their power, so that they should be ashamed, while laden with Thy blessings, to deny Thy person.
And also Thou didst have mercy on those, whose lives had been made food for dead idols. For the one calf which they made in the desert, [Exod. xxxii. 4.] pastured on their lives as on grass in the desert.

For that
idolatry which they had stolen and brought out in their hearts from Egypt, when it was made manifest, slew openly those in whom it was dwelling secretly.
For it was like fire concealed in wood, which when it is gendered from within it, burns it. For Moses ground to powder the calf and caused them to drink it in the water of ordeal; [Exod. xxxii. 20.] that by drinking of the calf all those who were living for its worship might die.

The root of Psallo means to triturate or GRIND INTO A FINE POWDER.
19. But when Moses came down, he saw their heathenism revelling in the wide plain with drums and cymbals.

Speedily, he put their madness to shame by means of the Levites and drawn swords.
So likewise here, our Lord concealed His knowledge for a little when the sinful woman approached Him, that the Pharisee might form into shape his thought, as his fathers had shaped the pernicious calf.
Those who lie, cheat and steal the "church houses of widows"--more criminal than the Pharisees--are IN FACT making War on Jesus Christ and trying to chain HIM outside of their "temples of doom.  The Levites used David's instruments during the  Burnt Offering for the alread-lost instrument Sect (Israel) but Christ in the prophets DENIES that these "burnt man" pretenses had been commanded.
In Psalm 41 and especially the preserved copy at the Dead Sea defines in agonizing details how Satan would attack.

The War Rules specificially shows how to perform the ALARM along with the HOLOCAUST.
DSS: "The priests shall blow the trumpets of massacre, and
the Levites and all the blowers of the ram's horn
.........shall sound a battle alarm,
.........and the foot soldiers shall stretch out their hands against the host...
and at the sound of the alarm
.........they shall begin to bring down the slain.
All the people shall cease their clamor,
.........but the priests shall continue blow the trumpets of massacre."  - War Scroll
See Isaiah 55 for the definition of Chris't Spirit as the Words which flow out of us to others. In Chapter 58, as He did for the synagogue or Church in the Wilderness, forbids seeking our own pleasure or even speaking our own words. Pretty simple since this was the pattern Jesus followed and commanded and Paul in all of the NEVER-musical passages commanded us to use one mind and one mouth to teach that which is written which he defines as Scripture. Peter commanded the same pattern and specificially outlawed all of the deception of rhetoric and music.

See Isaiah 58 which links to Jesus calling the Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites by pointing to His prophecy naming rhetoricians, singers and instrument players.

See Revelation 14 where the SOUNDS LIKE in the air above Zion  was the WARNING that time is short: the next angel warned PREACH THE GOSPEL.  The next angel then warns that the Babylon mother of harlots has fallen.

The Tulsa Workshop and its participants do not represent the Church of Christ, neither does the NACC represent the individual congregations of the Christian church.  Trying to impose instruments at the expense of sowing massive discord represents one of the oldest battles within the churches.  This is just a small selection of universal association between music and pagan idolatry which was sexual in nature especially at Mount Sinai when the musical idolatry was without redemption.    Romans 1 records the event which is parallel to the musical idolatry defined by The Book of Enoch and noted by Jude.

What others do is not much concern except when self-selected and self-ordained prophets and apostles see visions and have a spirit speak to them propose themselves as the authority on the instrument issue.  The easiest thing to prove that at no level of "scholarship" do the writers and speakers use or care about the context or storyline of instruments in the Bible and in all of history.  History proves that theologians have always believed that if they could find a statement they liked it then BECAME the inspired Word. For instance, the Disciples invented the "law of silence" which gave them the liberty to impose instruments. Thereafter, that became the will of Christ and you should "get over it or get out."

W.R. Walker, in Christian Standard, May 27, 1939, said: "There are two areas in our religious living in which the authority of Christ must be recognized. The first embraces all his teaching and that of his inspired followers, the `vocal area' ; but there is another area, the `area of silence."' He further said:  
"I am persuaded that Christ has authority in the `areas of silence.' 
Christ, by his silence, in every situation concerning which he has left no direct teaching, has bestowed on me this authority to act for myself."  
Here are the two standards or rules recognized by many in the "Christian Church," namely, that of "walking by faith," and that of "walking by opinion." W.R. Walker calls the opinions of man in the "areas of silence" "the authority of Christ." This is tantamount to saying that man's opinions in the "areas of silence" are of equal force with the word of God.  H. Leo Boles The Way of Unity

See Alexander Hislop on the High Church attempt
Also See Hugh Brown
History refuting the Law of Silence
The Disciples were built on the "High Church" concept of the church of England which, like the Catholics, gave them the authority to add or delect rituals based on the culture.  However, the Church of England never approved of this patternism. The Christians in the SE inherited this view from the Methodists back to the Catholic Church.

You only need a LAW if you intend to IMPOSE something new and divisive: congregational singing has never divided and needs no law.

Plut. Crass. 23 But when they were near the Romans and the signal was raised by their commander, first of all they filled the plain with the sound of a deep and terrifying roar. [7] For the Parthians do not incite themselves to battle with horns or trumpets, but they have hollow drums of distended hide, covered with bronze bells, and on these they beat all at once in many quarters, and the instruments give forth a low and dismal tone, a blend of wild beast's roar and harsh thunder peal. 
        They had rightly judged that, of all the senses,
        hearing is the one most apt to confound the soul,
        soonest rouses its emotions,
        and most effectively unseats the judgment.

That is why, without exception, music and instruments were lifeless instruments or carnal weapons used to induce enchantment intending to pick your pockets while causing you to smile.

Aesch. PB 575 Io

[575] The waxen pipe drones forth in accompaniment a clear-sounding slumberous strain. Alas, alas! Where is my far-roaming wandering course taking me? In what, O son of Cronus, in what have you found offence so that you have bound me [580] to this yoke of misery—aah! are you harassing a wretched maiden to frenzy by this terror of the pursuing gadfly? Consume me with fire, or hide me in the earth, or give me to the monsters of the deep to devour; but do not grudge, 
        O Lord, the favor that I pray for.
        [585] My far-roaming wanderings have taught me enough,
        and I cannot discern how to escape my sufferings.
        Do you hear the voice of the horned virgin?
Amos 8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation;
        and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head;
        and I will make it as the mourning of an only son,
        and the end thereof as a bitter day.
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD,  
    that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
        but of hearing the words of the LORD:

Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,
        they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Hippolytus V
"Yobal made reed instruments, and harps, and flutes, and whistles, 
        and the devils went and dwelt inside them.
        When men blew into the pipes, the devils sang inside them 
        And Satan had been made ruler (or prince) of that camp
And when the men and women were stirred up to lascivious frenzy by the devilish playing of the reeds which emitted musical sounds, and by the harps which the men played through the operation of the power of the devils, and by the sounds of the tambourines and of the sistra which were beaten and rattled through the agency of evil spirits, the sounds of their laughter were heard in the air above them, and ascended to that holy mountain.

Our First Tulsa Workshop which matched non-instrumentalists agreeing with instrumentalists: these spokesmen had already or planned to divert "their" churches into instrumental churches.

REVISED 5.13.10

Remembering that Christ spoke through the prophets to warn about the free water of the Word (Isaiah 55) and to MARK those who lade burdens and disturb your rest by SPEAKING THEIR OWN WORDS (a mark of the Devil).  He always repudiated the Civil-Military-Clergy complex imposed because of musical idolatry as robbers and parasites.  From the garden of Eden onward HE gets to decide what to command, example and infer.  Christ never said THOU SHALT NOT permit wizzards and sorcerers into thy "school of the Word" He just said THERE IS NO LIGHT IN THEM.
Isa. 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, 
        Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,
        and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter:
        should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

[19] et cum dixerint ad vos quaerite a pythonibus et a divinis qui stridunt in incantationibus suis numquid non populus a Deo suo requirit pro vivis a mortuis

To the law and to the testimony:
        if they speak not according to this word,
        it is because there is no light in them. Isa 8:20

Strabo Geography [10.3.10] And on this account Plato, and even before his time the Pythagoreians, called philosophy music; and

they say that the universe is constituted in accordance with harmony,
assuming that every form of music is the work of the gods.
And in this sense, also, the
Muses are goddesses,
Apollo is leader of the Muses,
poetry as a whole is laudatory of the gods.

And branch-bearing, choral dancing, and initiations are common elements in the worship of these gods. As for the Muses and Apollo 
the Muses (female pastors) preside over the choruses,
Apollo presides both over these and the rites of divination.

But all educated men, and especially the musicians, are ministers of the Muses;

and both these and those who have to do with divination are ministers of Apollo;
and the
initiated and torch-bearers and hierophants, of Demeter; and the Sileni and Satyri and Bacchae, and also the Lenae and Thyiae and Mimallones and Naïdes and Nymphae and the beings called Tityri, of Dionysus.

-10.3.11] In Crete, not only these rites, but in particular those sacred to Zeus, were performed

along with orgiastic worship and
with the
kind of ministers who were in the service of Dionysus, (Coroi, youth) mean the Satyri (Gender-bent musical Pan types).

These ministers they called "Curetes," young men who executed movements in armour, accompanied by dancing, as they set forth the mythical story of the birth of Zeus; in this they introduced Cronus as accustomed to swallow his children immediately after their birth,

and Rhea as trying to keep her travail secret and, when the child was born, to get it out of the way and save its life by every means in her power; and to accomplish this it is said that

she took as helpers the Curetes, who, by surrounding the goddess with tambourines and similar noisy instruments and with war-dance and uproar,

were supposed to strike terror into Cronus and without his knowledge to steal his child away; and that, according to tradition, Zeus was actually reared by them with the same diligence; consequently the

Curetes, either because,
being young
, that is "youths," they performed this service, or because they "reared" Zeus "in his youth" (for both explanations are given), were accorded this appellation (Curo-trophein), as if they were Satyrs, so to speak,

in the service of Zeus. Such, then, were the Greeks in the matter of orgiastic worship.

Sworn foe to all degrees of chastity.

To cheat the bridegroom on the wedding-day,
And then a hundred subtle tricks devis'd,
Wherewith the am'rous theft might be disguis'd;

Of herbs and spells she tries the guilty force,
The poison of a mare that goes to horse.
Cleaving the midnight air upon a switch,

Her ready tongue ne'er wants a useful lie,
Soft moving words, nor charming flattery.

Aristotle: Melody Deceives: "Poets also make use of this in inventing words, as a melody "without strings" or "without the lyre"; for they employ epithets from negations, a course which is approved in proportional metaphors..

The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm.
If it is
metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial, and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention, since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence..

REVISED 5.06.10

I would not expect that anyone who has "thused" over Tulsa will want to read the MARKS. It is not possible that anyone who has ever read the Bible with respect could doubt that music has always been the cause and mark of those who tell God to shut His mouth: it is called sacred violence and it is proven to be able to shut the mouth of the Prophets and Apostles and Jesus in Spirit as He leads through His Word. 
Jn 8:35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever,
        but a son abides forever.

Jn 8:36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Jn 8:37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants,
        but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.
Jn 8:43 Why do you not understand My speech?
        Because you are not able to listen to My word.

The Spiritual Covenant was made to Abraham by Christ in Spirit. The Law of Moses was imposed because of musical idolatry at Mount Sinai.  Therefore, anyone who tries to impose the burnt offerings and sacrifices with the Levite Warrior's music or noise is ENCHAINING you to keep the whole law.   The word PSALLO is directly connected to putting a chain or bridle on your minds.

Jesus died to remove the laded burden and the burden laders and to give us REST: both of these speak of the exciting music associated with religious ritual used to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter.  Apollo, Abaddon or Apollyon in the book of Revelation is also called:

HH 3 206 To Pythian Apollo [1] O Lord, Lycia is yours and lovely Maeonia [180] and Miletus, charming city by the sea, but over wave-girt Delos you greatly reign your own self. Leto's all-glorious son goes to rocky Pytho, playing upon his hollow lyre, clad in divine, perfumed garments; and his lyre,
[185] at the touch of the golden key, sings sweet. Thence, swift as thought, he speeds from earth to Olympus, to the house of Zeus, to join the gathering of the other gods:
        then straightway the undying gods think only of the lyre and song, and all the Muses together,
        voice sweetly answering voice, [190] hymn the unending gifts the gods enjoy and the sufferings of men,
        all that they endure at the hands of the deathless gods,
        and how they live witless and helpless and
        cannot find healing for death or defence against old age.

Xen. Sym. 9.2 After he had withdrawn, a chair of state, first of all, was set down in the room, and then the Syracusan came in with the announcement: “Gentlemen, Ariadne will now enter the chamber set apart for her and Dionysus; after that, Dionysus, a little flushed with wine drunk at a banquet of the gods, will come to join her; and then they will disport themselves together.”
See Saltatio where the simple gestures while singing was called dancing especially when worshiping Phoberos or Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon) and performed by David in 2 Samuel 6

Jn 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Jesus called them hypocrites by quoting Isaiah and ezekiel 33:

Ezek. 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls
        and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, 

        saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.
Ezek. 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
        and they sit before thee as my people, 
        and they hear thy words, but they will not do them:
                for with their mouth they shew much love,
                but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
Christ gives an example to explain those who become massed multitudes (beasts) knowing that they have no intention of listening to what He has to say:
Ezek. 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them
        as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice,
        and can play well on an instrument:
                for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
Ezek. 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,)
        then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

Of Jesus:

He unchained us from the Musical minstrels by casting them out "like dung."
He unchained us from the hypocrites which means the rhetoricians or smooth-speak
He unchained us from the hypocrites meaning the chanters or singers as hypocrites.
He unchained us from the sons of the Devil who speaks from their own resources.
He unchained us from the sermon writers and song writers replacing HIS Words in the prophets and apostles.
He unchained us from the pipers, singers and dancers by consigning them to the marketplace with all of the other corruptions.
He unchained us from the temple tax (buildings and grounds) by paying it off.
He unchained us from having to go to a "place" to pray: the direct command is "in your closet."
He unchained us from laying by in story by the direct command to take care of our own alms.
He unchained us from any instrument player while putting something into the poor box.
He unchained us from worship at a PLACE by letting us worship in our own spirit devoted to the truth.
Paul unchained us for using the PSALLO  word as a weapon against SATAN'S weapons.
He empowered the synagogue or Church in the wilderness as a School (only) of the Word (only). The Lord's Supper is an act of evangelism and anything beyond that destroys unity.

Luke 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there:

Heb. 13:11 For the bodies of those beasts,

        are burned without the camp.
Heb. 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood,
        suffered without the gate.
Heb. 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.

In Mein Kampf Hitler joked about how easy it was to excite the "human material" into gambling away their kingdom.  That is what Peter warned about especially with the GOOSE-CLAPPING men spreading PATTERNISM hate and promising you liberty by CORRUPTING you. But, then the petty tyrants can be virtually unable to read BLACK text on BROWN paper in order to get a Phd.

The mass meeting is also necessary for the reason that in it the individual, who at first while becoming a supporter of a young movement, feels lonely and easily succumbs to the fear of being alone, for the first time gets the picture of a larger community, which in most people has a strengthening, encouraging effect.

The same man, within a company or a battalion, surrounded by all his comrades, would set out on an attack with a lighter heart than if left entirely on his own In the crowd he always feels somewhat sheltered, even if a thousand reasons actually argue against it.

But the community of the great demonstration not only strengthens the individual, it also unites and helps to create an esprit de corps. The man who is exposed to grave tribulations, as the first advocate of a new doctrine in his factory or workshop,  absolutely needs that strengthening which lies in the conviction of being a member and fighter in a great comprehensive body.

And he obtains an impression of this body for the first time in the mass demonstration. When from his little workshop or big factory, in which he feels very small,

he steps for the first time into a mass meeting and has thousands and thousands of people of the same opinions around him, when, as a seeker, (Als Suchender.' A Wagnerian phrase, which Hitler was apparently determined to use at all costs)
        he is
swept away by three or four thousand others into
        the mighty effect of
suggestive intoxication and enthusiasm,
        when the visible success and agreement of thousands
confirm to him the rightness of the new doctrine
        and for the first time arouse doubt in the truth of his previous conviction -

        then he himself has succumbed to the magic influence of what we designate as 'mass suggestion.'
The will, the longing, and also the power of thousands are accumulated in every individual. The man who enters such a meeting doubting and wavering leaves it inwardly reinforced: he has become a link in the community.

The National Socialist movement must never forget this and in particular

it must never let itself be influenced by those bourgeois  who know everything better,
but who nevertheless have gambled away a great state including their own existence and the rule of their class.

Tulsa Workshop 2010 depended almost totally on those who had made a living by defining faithful believers as PATTERNISTS as a RACA word to make people HATE those who do not use musical instruments who are faithful to the Bible and all recorded history. First, you have to make a group of people hate even those who bought the property and invested their religious life before you can mount a hostile attack.

It is clear that MUSIC has always been the mark of Satan and those wishing to silence the voice of God and is the CORE legalistic act which is at the root of all attempts to "unify" religious groups into one creedal statement.  This use of 0% of facts to try to first ALARM and the TRIUMPH OVER those they hate is the very "vocal or instrumental rejoicing" which Christ outlawed for the Qahal, synagogue or Church of Christ in the Wilderness.  For the first time in recorded history the Diciples / NACC used the PSALLO word to try to collectivize many groups and it is a fact that Psallo has the same root word as SOP which was the signal or mark for Satan to enter ento Judas.

In The Tulsa Workshop 2010 we showed that it has been taken over to promote UNITY with the NACC which unity is always a code word for "You bow when we pipe and we can be friends and you DO want to be joined, don't you?"  From Lucifer the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden onward Lucifer is purpose driven to silence the words of God: this is the SOPHIA-ZOE (effeminate and worse, performance) in mortal conflict with the Jehovah-Logos teaching of mankind how to live in peace.

Why would Tulsa Workshop be defended when it's major speakers twisted all of the Scriptures and known literature to say that  "a spirit" told him that he was going to have to begin--after 12 years of timid tremors--that GOD COMMANDED INSTRUMENTAL praise and WE MUST NOT BE DISOBEDIENT.  God ABANDONED Israel to the worship of the starry host BECAUSE of musical idolatry and Christ in ALL of the prophets denied that God commanded sacrifices or BURNING THE GOATS to sounds of the Levitical Warrior Prophesiers (Soothsayers).  Why would Al Maxey who has made a career out of inventing RACA words to define those who OPPOSE instruments being imposed in their congregation: he applauded Rick Atchley for deliberately sowing discord.


"Middleclass Protestants in POST-INDUSTRIAL America were increasingly literate producing and devouring newspapers magazines, histories, novels, and poetry in enormous quantities. At the same time, male and female roles were being redefined, and many men spent their energies in the business and politics of an expanding society. Those were arenas from which both women and ministers, by custom and/or law, were excluded. Religion itself was becoming a separate sphere, no longer directly linked to government and public affairs, and ministers had lost the prestige their forefathers had as scholars and advisers to magistrates. Together with their most faithful followers, middleclass women, they created a realm of intense religious experience, separate from the larger society, and gave it expression in poetry and hymnody.

"Philodemus considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy.

He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals (hand clapping or tabering) and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit.

He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly.
nothing of value could be attributed to music; it was no more than a slave of the sensation of pleasure, which satisfied much in the same way that food and drink did.

"Women and girls from the different ranks of society were proud to enter the service of the gods as singers and musicians. The understanding of this service was universal:these singers constituted the 'harem of the gods'." (Johannes Quasten. In Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, beginning on page 41:)

Following O.E. Payne Tom Burgess drags out many "proof texts" to show that "psallo" meant to play an instrument.

An e-mail from 2004 Tulsa Workout: "Ashamed October 12 2004, 5:47 PM

I am from the Tulsa area, and attended the workshop for the first time this past year. Mr. Lancaster was leading singing the night I was there. All I can say is I actualy was embarrased by the actions on stage. I can't for the life of me imagine how our leaders seem to think they are more important than they really are. People a Song leader aka worship leader is not there for our amusement (entertainment) If I wanted to be entertained I would go somewhere else. It is a song leaders job to start the song and get the CONGREGATION into an active worship. It seems like some of these guys think we should just sit back and let them perform. The dancing actualy made me blush in embarasment. I actualy thought to myself Man I hope nobody I know sees me here, and Man I'm glad I didn't invite anyone to go with me to this. What a absolute tragedy.  I'll take my small congregation of singers over you and your praise team any day of the week and twice (literally) on Sunday.

Sorry, but all of the proof texts used by the NACC (not the people) speak of males plucking the strings to seduce a young male.  The Muses in Revelation 18 John called sorcerers were known as adulteresses:

Hesiod, Theogony: the Muses of Olympus, daughters of Zeus who holds the aegis:

(ll. 26-28) `Shepherds of the wilderness, wretched things of shame, mere bellies,
............we know how to speak many false things as though they were true;
............but we know, when we will, to utter true things.'

Matt 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.


Tom Burgess: Examples 60 and 61 have been obtained from the writings of Plutarch. Plutarch's use of the word psallo is of great value and worth because he lived and wrote during the same period as did the Apostles (46-120A. D. ). His books, Parallel Lives of Illustrious Greeks and Romans and Moralia, are a great credit to Greek literature. Plutarch's use of psallo shows, without a doubt, that he knew nothing of any drastic change in the word which extracted the musical instrument from it s definition.

Three times in example 60 he uses a form of psallo. These have been translated: "plucked the strings, " "to pluck the strings, " and" pluck the strings," In example 61another form is translated "harpplayer, "

Tillô, pluck or pull outhair, 2. with acc. of that from which the hair or feathers are plucked, as a description of an idle fellow, also, pluck live sheep, instead of shearing, have one's hair plucked out as a punishment of adulterers

II. since tearing the hair was a usual expression of sorrow, tillesthai tina tear one's hair in sorrow for any one III. metaph., pluck, vex, annoy, as punishment of adulterers

Plutarch, Lives [4] Such objects are to be found in virtuous deeds; these implant in those who search them out a great and zealous eagerness which leads to imitation. In other cases, admiration of the deed is not immediately accompanied by an impulse to do it. Nay, many times, on the contrary, while we delight in the work, we despise the workman

as, for instance, in the case of perfumes and dyes; we take a delight in them   but dyers and perfumers we regard as illiberal and vulgar folk.

5] Therefore it was a fine saying of Antisthenes, when he heard that Ismenias was an
excellent piper"But he's a worthless man," said he, "otherwise he wouldn't be so good a piper."

And so Philip [Philip of Macedon, to Alexander.] once said to his son, who, as the wine went round, plucked the strings charmingly and skilfully, "Art not ashamed to pluck the strings so well?" It is enough, surely, if a king have leisure to hear others pluck the strings, and he pays great deference to the Muses if he be but a spectator of such contests.

    "Lucian tells us that spectres fled at the sound of bronze and iron, and

    "The serpent-charmers usual instrument is the flute. Those who professed the art of taming serpents were called by the Hebrews menachashim, while the art itself was called lachash , (Jer 8:17; Ecc 10:11)" Smith's Dictionary, Serpent.

    Lachash (h3908) lakh'-ash; from 3907; prop. a whisper, i. e. by impl. (in a good sense) a private prayer, (in a bad one) an incantation; concr. an amulet: - charmed, earring, enchantment, orator, prayer.

    "There are some serpents which defy all of the attempts of the charmer: in the language of Scripture such individuals may be termed deaf. The point of the rebuke consists in the fact that the pethen was capable of hearing the charmer's song, but refused to do so. Serpents, though comparitively speaking deaf to ordinary sounds, are no doubt capable of hearing the sharp, shrill sound which the charmer produces either by his voice or by an instrument." (Smith's Dict. Asp)

    "The necromancer or soothsayer gained their power through magical incantations. The sound of brass, pipe or string imitated the music of the seven heavenly spheres

    In the cuneiform writing the Jews were named laudi.— Schrader, Keilinschr. n. d. Alt. Test. 188. Audah, in Hebrew, means ' I will praise.' This reveals the original name of Judea, the land of And. If we follow St. Jerome's dictum " to write a ' he' but to read it an «," we will find that Isaiah, xix. 17, has " laiidah's laud " instead of Jeudah's land. By a Hebrew pun, Genesis, xxix. 35, gives us ' Audah' as the root of the name laudah. Ami's altar was sprinkled with blood. Saturn's name was Chion, the Living One. Saturn's altars were blood-besprinkled. The horns of lachoh's (lao's) altars were blood-besprinkled on Saturn's day. The right ears of Aharon and his sons, their right thumbs, their right great toes, and their garments were sprinkled with blood.—Exodus, xxix. 12, 116, 20, 21. For the life of the flesh is in the blood.—Leviticus, xvii. G, 11. Chion was the Achiah asur Achiah, of Exodus, iii. 14, the Living God of Time, Set or Saturn. Compare Daniel, vii. 13. For Chion (like Moloch) was the name of the Living One!

    We find the cities of the priests with the brothers (fratres) in their orders, in 2 Chronicles, xxxi. 15. A deity, regarded as the pure, holy fire, cannot be approached by the ordinary man; a priest-caste is requisite, to which the preservation of the sacred fire-place is entrusted, and which by mortifyings (of the flesh) and torments self-inflicted must make itself worthy of the access to the deity and its revelation. We find among the Old Canaanites no proper priesthood, but everywhere in Palestine, according to the Scriptural accounts, where the Chaldean fire-god Moloch

    Dionysus was worshipped among the Old Kanaanites and Arabians—" where the Bacchic fire of the God leaps forth." This Fire is that of Bal Melkarth or Moloch. The worship of this Tyrian Fire-god Herakles (Archal) was carried to Tarz

    According to Jeremiah, vii. 21, 22, blood offerings were not divinely commanded. According to the Samaveda, says Jacolliot,7 it is murder to shed blood except as an offering. In comparing the Jewish religion with the Hindu, Leviticus, xvii. 3, 4, offers a positive testimony. The verses show that the Hebrews were under the sway of this chief brahman doctrine. The Brahmans were not allowed " to feed on the flesh of living creatures that assist the labors of men." ' The Egyptians slay no cattle except for sacrifice.—Herodotus, ii. 41. £iva is the only God to whom animal sacrifices were offered.9

    Professor Robert Briffault's introductory words to his article titled "Sex in Religion" published in the book "Sex in Civilization" (Garden City Publishing Co.)

    "The elaborate mystic theology of Egypt was replete with sexual symbolism; hierodular [sacred] prostitution, ritual bestiality were among the observances of its cult. The religions of Babylonia, of Asia Minor, of the far-flung Semitic colonies, were notorious for the licentiousness of their rites: their priestesses were sacred prostitutes and prostitution was incumbent upon every woman.
    'Nearly all peoples, except the Egyptians and the Greeks,' says Herodotus, 'have intercourse with women in the temples.'

    Cic. Planc. 35.86 Was it a very formidable thing for me to fight with the sword with the relics of those men, whom, when they were flourishing with their strength unimpaired, I had defeated without the sword? The basest and most infamous consuls in the memory of man,—as both the beginning of their conduct and as their recent termination of those affairs, show them to have been, (one of whom lost his army, and the other sold it,)—having bought their provinces, had deserted the senate, and the republic, and all good men. When no one knew what were the feelings of those men who by means of their armies, and their arms, and their riches, were the most powerful men in the state, then that voice, rendered insane by its infamous debaucheries, made effeminate by its attendance on holy altars, kept crying out in a most ferocious manner that both these men and the consuls were acting in concert with him.
    Needy men were armed against the rich, abandoned men against the good, slaves against their masters

    2Pet. 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person,

    2Pet. 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow,

    Music in the School of Christ (Restoration View) is sacred violence and it was and is the intention to silence the voice of the victime and to break apart relationships with brethren.  You can never assume a pure motive.
    4.2.2 The way of unholy communions involves a special form of violence, a 'good' violence that is sanctioned to keep in check the 'bad,' mimetic violence that arises out of rivalrous desire. In modern cultures based on law, this good violence is the sanctioned violence of police and military forces. In more ancient cultures, it is the sacred violence of ritual blood sacrifice. The New Testament witness is that in Jesus Christ we arrive at the end of both Law and Sacrifice -- "end" in both of its senses. Christ is the end in that we cease to live according to the previous practices of Law and Sacrifice. Christ is also the end in the sense of the fulfillment of both Law and Sacrifice. Jesus Christ ushers in the way of God's Culture ("Kingdom"), based on the Law of Love (cf., Rom. 13:8-10; Gal. 5:14; James 2:8) and the way of self-sacrifice (cf., Rom. 12:1; Heb. 9:26).
    To recrucify Christ means to stir up the passion and pride to replace the Word.

    Heb. 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire,
            nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
    Heb. 12:19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words;
            which voice they that heard intreated
            that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
    Heb. 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying,
            Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
    Heb. 12:27 And this word, Yet once more,
            signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken,
            as of things that are made,
            that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
    Heb. 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,
            let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
    Heb. 12:29
    For our God is a consuming fire.

    5.4.2 Behind the anthropological predilections against the victim's perspective, there is a very practical, quasi-historical reason: namely, the victim is shunned and often killed. In the ancient world, the role of music during ritual sacrifice was often to drown out any cries from the victim. It is crucial that the victim not be heard. The practical mechanics of making victims means that it is unusual for the victim's perspective to survive. In the world of ancient ritual it was probably impossible.

    45. The Greek verb myo means to close the mouth or shut the eyes. There is debate about whether myo plays a crucial role in the etymology of other significant words such as myth, mystery, and even music. These etymologies make sense within the Girardian hypotheses. Myth means to close ourselves to the victim and tell the tale according to the perpetrator's perspective; mystery cults are based on the silence of the victims; music derives from drowning out the voice of the victim.

    3466. musth/rion musterion, moos-tay´-ree-on; from a derivative of mu/w muo (to shut the mouth); a secret or “mystery” (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites): — mystery.  


    Rev. 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,

    Rev. 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,
            and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,

    beyond the power of speech or understanding.
    By chance I had thrown the piece of wool with which
    I smeared the robe into the blazing heat

    away to nothing, crumbling into earth
    exactly like the little particles

    It lies there still. And from the place it fell

    Pind. I. 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 [5] 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 [10] 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.

    Aesch. Supp. 998 For in an alien's case, all the world bears an evil tongue in readiness, [995] and it is easy lightly to utter defiling slander. Therefore I would have you bring no shame upon me, now when your youthful loveliness
    attracts men's gaze. The tender ripeness of summer fruit is in no way easy to protect; beasts despoil it—and men, why not?— [1000] and brutes that fly and those that walk the earth. Love's goddess spreads news abroad of fruit bursting ripe. . . . So all men, as they pass, [1005] mastered by desire, shoot an alluring arrow of the eye at the delicate beauty of virgins.

    THUS hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. Amos 8:1

    And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more. Amos 8:2

    A basket:

    Keluwb (h3619) kel-oob'; from the same as 3611; a bird-trap (as furnished with a clap-stick or treadle to spring it); hence a basket (as resembling a wicker cage): - basket, cage.

    Keleb (h3611) keh'leb; from an unused root mean. to yelp, or else to attack; a dog; hence (by euphemism) a male prostitute: - dog.

    For dogs have compassed me: the assembly [multitude, swarm] of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. Ps.22:16

    Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Is.56:11

    And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy. Je.15:3

    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 (647): it is to them, and first to Apollo, that she turns in trouble (911). But the shock which had befallen her own life, --when at the bidding of Delphi her first-born was sacrificed without saving her husband Laius--has left a deep and bitter conviction that no mortal, be he priest or seer, shares the divine foreknowledge.

    Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit;
            and there arose a smoke out of the pit,
            as the smoke of a great furnace;
            and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
    Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth:
            and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
    Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth,

    Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them,

    Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

            and their power was to hurt men five months.
    Rev 9:11 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.

    The Babylon Mother of Harlots uses the "pharmaka" as sorcery worshiiping Aphrodite or Zoe (Venus-Lucifer). When Zoe becomes the musical worship minister /mistress she is the HEAD of the Locusts in the Classics and John's image.

    Pseudo-Apollodorus Shows how Zeus was worshipped

    [1.9.7] Salmoneus at first dwelt in Thessaly, but afterwards he came to Elis and there founded a city.
    And being arrogant and wishful to
    put himself on an equality with Zeus, he was punished for his impiety;
    for he said that he was himself Zeus, and

    he took away the sacrifices of the god and
            ordered them to be offered to himself;
    and by dragging dried hides, with bronze kettles, at his chariot,
            he said that he thundered,
    and by flinging lighted torches at the sky
            he said that he lightened.

    But Zeus struck him with a thunderbolt, and wiped out the city he had founded with all its inhabitants.

    Note: In the traditions concerning Salmoneus we may perhaps trace the reminiscence of a line of kings who personated the Skygod Zeus and attempted to make rain, thunder and lightning by means of imitative magic. See The Magic Art and the Evolution of Kings, i.310, ii.177, 180ff. Sophocles composed a Satyric play on the subject (The Fragments of Sophocles, ed. A. C. Pearson, vol. ii. pp. 177ff. ). 19) 
    The SOUNDS LIKE harps etc is a SOUND OF JUDGMENT

    Note that the 144,000 are on the Earth:

    AND I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Fathers name written in their foreheads. Rev 14:1

    What they heard was from heaven.

    And I heard a voice from heaven,
    as the voice of many waters, and
    the voice of a great thunder:
    and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: Rev 14:2
    And I heard a sound from heaven the roar of rushing waters and a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was that of harpists playing their harps. Rev 14:2NIV

    And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. Rev 14:3

    And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,
    ..........having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth,
    ..........and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Rev 14:6 

    INSTRUMENTAL NOISE is always the MARK or SOUND of Judgment and NOT Spiritual worship.

    Saying [not singing] with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him;
    ..........for the hour of his judgment is come:
    ..........and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea,
    ..........and the fountains of waters. Rev 14:7
    Aesch. Pers. 605 Atossa
    My friends, whoever has experience of misery knows that when a sea [600] of troubles comes upon mortal men, they view all things with alarm;
            but when fortune flows with prosperous tide,
            they believe that this same fortune will forever bring them success.
    Now in my case everything seems full of dread;
            before my eyes appears the enmity of the gods,
            [605] and in my ears there rings a sound that has no note of joy;
            such is my consternation at the evil tidings which terrify my soul.

    It is for this reason that I have come here from the palace once again, without my chariot and my former pomp, and bring, as propitiatory libations for the father of my son, 

    [610] offerings that soothe the dead, both white milk, pleasant to drink, from an unblemished cow, 
            and bright honey, distillation wrought from blossoms by the bee,
            together with lustral water from a virgin spring;
            [615] and from a rustic source, this unmixed draught, the quickening juice of an ancient vine.
    Here too is the fragrant fruit of the pale-green olive that lives the entirety of its life in luxuriant foliage; and garlanded flowers, produce of the bounteous earth.

    But come, my friends, [620] chant solemn songs as I make these libations to the dead, and summon forth the divine spirit of Darius, while I convey, in honor of the gods, these offerings for the earth to drink.

    Royal lady, august queen of the Persians, pour these libations down to the chambers of the earth, [625] while we, in solemn chant, beseech the guides of the dead beneath the earth to be gracious to our prayers.

    O holy divinities of the nether world, Earth and Hermes, and you, Lord of the dead, [630] send up to the light the spirit from below; for if, beyond our prayers, he knows any further remedy for our distress, he alone of mortals can declare how to bring it to accomplishment.


    Wisdom of Solomon

    Wisd 17.16
    - And whoever was there fell down, and thus was kept shut up in a prison not made of iron;

    17 - for whether he was a farmer or a shepherd or a workman who toiled in the wilderness,
            he was seized, and endured the inescapable fate; for with one chain of darkness they all were bound.

    18 - Whether there came a whistling wind, or a melodious sound of birds in wide -
            spreading branches, or the rhythm of
    violently rushing water,

    19 - or the harsh crash of rocks hurled down,
            or the unseen running of leaping animals, or the sound of the most savage roaring beasts,
            or an
    echo thrown back from a hollow of the mountains, it paralyzed them with terror.

    20 - For the whole world was illumined with brilliant light, and was engaged in unhindered work,

    21 - while over those men alone heavy night was spread, an image of the darkness that was destined to receive them; but still heavier than darkness were they to themselves.

    Wisd 19.13 - The punishments did not come upon the sinners
            without prior signs in the
    violence of thunder, [Rev 14]
            for they justly suffered because of their wicked acts;
            for they practiced a more bitter hatred of strangers.

    14 - Others had refused to receive strangers when they came to them,
            but these made
    slaves of guests who were their benefactors.

    15 - And not only so, but punishment of some sort will come upon the former for their hostile reception of the aliens;

    16 - but the latter,
            after receiving
    them with festal celebrations,
    with terrible sufferings those who had already shared the same rights.

    17 - They were stricken also with loss of sight - - just as were those at the door of the righteous man - -
            when, surrounded by yawning darkness, each tried to find the way through his own door.

    18 - For the elements changed places with one another,
            as on a harp the notes vary the nature of the rhythm,
            while each note remains the same.
            This may be
    clearly inferred from the sight of what took place.

    19 - For land animals were transformed into water creatures,
            and creatures that swim moved over to the land.

    20 - Fire even in water retained its normal power,
    water forgot its fire -quenching nature.

    Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, [Hypocrites: speakers, singers, instrument players]
            when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said,
            The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
    Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!
            for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
    Luke 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come,
            when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
    Luke 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there:
            go not after them, nor follow them.
     Luke 17:25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
    Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage,
            until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    Proverbs 30 [12] There is a generation that is pure in their own eyes, Yet are not washed from their filthiness. [13] There is a generation, oh how lofty are their eyes! Their eyelids are lifted up. [14] There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And their jaws like knives, 
            To devour the poor from the earth, and the needy from among men.

    Diod. 14.109 He also sent the best professional reciters that they might present his poems in the gathering and thus win glory for the name of Dionysius, for he was madly addicted to poetry... and when the reciters began to present the poems of Dionysius, at first the multitude thronged together because of the pleasing voices of the actors and all were filled with wonder. But on second consideration, when they observed how poor his verses were, they laughed Dionysius to scorn and went so far in their rejection that some of them even ventured to rifle the tents. [3] Indeed the orator Lysias who was at that time in Olympia, urged the multitude not to admit to the sacred festival the representatives from a most impious tyranny;

    Is37:22 This is the word which the LORD hath spoken concerning him;
            The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee,
            and laughed thee to scorn;
            the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
    Is. 37:23 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed?
            and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice,
            and lifted up thine eyes on high?
            even against the Holy One of Israel.
    Is. 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave,
            and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee,

    Is. 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!
    Is. 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven,
            I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
            I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

    Ezek. 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
    Is. 37:29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears,
            therefore will I put my hook in thy nose,  [Circulus a CHAIN]

            and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

    Plut. Rom. 9 Herodorus Ponticus relates that Hercules also was glad to see a vulture present itself when he was upon an exploit. [6] For it is the least harmful of all creatures, injures no grain, fruit-tree, or cattle, and lives on carrion. But it does not kill or maltreat anything that has life, and as for birds, it will not touch them even when they are dead, since they are of its own species.
            But eagles, owls, and hawks smite their own kind when alive, and kill them.
            And yet, in the words of Aeschylus:—5How shall a bird that preys on fellow bird be clean?
