  • For CHRIS who wants us to PLUCK
    • Ken Sublett (no login)
      Posted Mar 5, 2006 12:13 PM

        Chris Lucian in Parasites wrote "It is impossible to pipe without a pipe or to PSALLEIN without a lyre or to ride without a horse." (Approx 160AD)

        With the added ATTIC words

        "..for it is impossible to pipe [aulein] without a pipe [auloon] or to STRUM [psallein] without a lyre [luras], or to ride [ippeuein] without a horse [ippou]..."

      Psallo means to PLUCK with the FINGERS and NOT with a plectrum: not guitar picks, no organs, drums and no NOTHING but PLUCKING with your FINGERS.
        "The psaltery (psalterion, saltere, sauterie, Psalterium, Psalter, salterio) is an ancient intstrument seen in many forms. Early versions were simply a wooden board with gut strings stretched between pegs. The strings were plucked with fingers or by plectra (the name might have DERIVED from the Greek psallein meaning plucked with fingers).

        According to Heredotus, Cyrus was told how to turn warriors into women:

        and make them bring up their sons to cithern-playing (Kitharizein), singing (psallein), and shop-keeping (Hucksterism). So wilt thou soon see them become women instead of men,

      I think Chris (?) from New South Wales (?) has been raiding Tom Burgess' etal garbage can? Lucian was showing how to play the FLUTE in order to FLEECE the fat heads and simpletons. How do you DO that? Well, in all of the Pagan ORACLES they used EMASCULATED MALES (they went all the way according to Paul) as the "musical worship ministers." NO, NO, NO EXCEPTION. All of Burgess etal PROOF TEXT MARKS the musicators as "males PLUCKING the harp string to PLUCK a young male emasculated or even sex changed." They used it like Chris probably does: to PUT FORCE into the ungodly LAW OF GIVING.

      Lucian's use of instrumental music is in connection with the continuing pagan fertility rituals where wine, women and song with instruments "strummed up" the dead "gods" to come to them in an intimate way in charismatic ecstasy. "In Lucian of Samosata's Dialogues of a Courtesan we hear almost exclusively of women musicians and singers." The king of Tyre as the agent of the female or bisexual Lucifer gained his/her customers through literal music. Males who PERFORMED were, we are told, "either drunks or perverts." Only MALES performed as FEMALES in the pagan temples.

        "Sponging" is the superior art and "the sponger has no ulterior object; occupation and pre-occupation are for him one and the same." However,

        "Other arts, again, are useless to their professor unless he has his plant;

        you cannot PLAY the flute if you have not one to play;
        lyrical music requires a LYRE,
        horsemanship a HORSE.

        But of ours (sponging) one of the excellences and conveniences is that no instrument is required for its exercise. The Parasite, 17. Translated by H. W. and F. G. Fowler, Vol III, 1905
      Attic - The language of Lucian. The Britannica
        Attic was the ancient Greek dialect that was the language of ancient Athens. Its closest relative was the Ionic dialect of Euboea. With the ascendance of the Athenian empire in the course of the 5th century BC, Attic became the most prestigious of the Greek dialects and as a result was adopted later as

          the standard language by the Macedonian kings. Moreover, it became in Hellenistic times the language of the Macedonian rulers in the Middle East and Egypt.

          This later phase of Attic is called Koine, a dialect common to all Greeks.

        In literature, Attic is the dialect of Athenian comedy and, interspersed with Doric LYRIC (from lyre) elements, of tragedy. In the second half of the 5th century BC, it also became the dialect of Greek prose, not only for such Athenian writers as Thucydides, Xenophon, Plato, Lysias, Isocrates, and Demosthenes but also for foreigners such as the orator and Sophist Gorgias of Leontini (Sicily).

          During the Roman period, prose writers such as Plutarch and LUCIAN were Atticists:

          they preferred to use the classical Attic dialect of the 5th and 4th centuries BC, rather than the spoken Koine of their own time.
      Well, it really doesn't matter. Lucian was showing how to FLEECE the fat heads and simpletons with INSTRUMENTS. He proves that only PERVERTED "musical worship ministers" performed (double duty). He DOES NO say that a PSALM demands an INSTRUMENT. He said: you cannot PLUCK unless you have something to PLUCK.

      You CANNOT use Lucian without CONFESSING that you INTEND to use music to PLUCK the fleece from the FAT HEADS, SIMPLETONS and especially WIDOWS on wellfare.

      Probably no one but Burgess (and I) have plowed through the literature to find forms of PSALLO. However, Burgess is AFFLICTED with an ungodly TILT and perverts all of the writers by NOT using the BEFORE and AFTER quotation. He might find that Philip chided his son Alexander the Great for being TOO talented at Plucking the harp knowing that he was seducing a young boy. Alexander died of a STRANGE disease.

      All of the other "quoted" resources are used OUT OF CONTEXT which has to be DELIBERATE. Watch this page for more.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?

    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site;

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
