I read some of your wimpy burger stuff and think I understand your problem: not one of those you link to knows WHAT IS A CHURCH? If you don't know WHAT IS A CHURCH then you are going to be a miserable person.
If you gave away a billion dollars to the poor that would not get you any closer to being an EKKLESIA. Do you know that the civil ekklesia had ONE FUNCTION other than when it was invaded by the women: it had NO authority to introduce its own material to be read (as written), discussed and a conclusion reached. The syllogos was a living SYLLOGISM.
The synagogue--a Greek Word--had the same role: it could not introduce any of its own material: it could not humm and owwe and wow amazing. Jesus as the PATTERNISM stood up to READ (the scheduled passage) and uncommonly decently SAT DOWN. There was no preaching in the synagogue or church in the wilderness: that would smack God right in the mouth.
Christ ordained the Qahal, synagogue or Church in the wilderness AFTER the liars restored the old Egyptian musical idolatry which is universally marked as effeminate. Real men do do rituals.
It was INCLUSIVE of REST (from clergy), Reading and Rehearsing the Word of God. You see, a disciple does not do pagan rituals when the Master Teacher is speaking.
It was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrumental rejoicing. This word also excludes "elevated styles of speaking" which would identify a rhetorician Jesus called hypocrites.
That never changed and the deliberate, devilish sowers of discord don't have a clue and that is why Tulsa (spell it backward) is promoting THE WORSHIP OF THE STARRY HOST. See, your gang can't even read and understand Acts 7.
Paul outlawed doubtful disputations (all of what you heard at tulsa) which is personal opinions left to the marketplace where Jesus consigned the pipers, singers and dancers (swaying and clapping)
SELF pleasure outlawed in Romans 15 specificies all of the hypocritic artists Christ identified as speakers, singers and instrument players as the mark of COMMERCE.
The direct command is to use "that which is written" and written "for our learning" and defined as Scripture (not the lecture notes, not the wimpy praise singers)
Paul and Peter defined the assembly EXACTLY as it was commanded in the wilderness and MARKED as a false teacher any "private interpretation" which means "further expounding."http://www.piney.com/2.Peter.1.html
The ONLY worship concept by PAUL restored by the Campbells was "reading and musing the Word of God." That which is written, Spirit, The Word of Christ etc. Neither ekklesia nor synagogue can inject a single word by its own authority.
Christ laid it out for us as the FREE WATER OF THE WORD in Isaiah 55 and commanded you not to spend our bread money for it: that, agrees Peter in 2 Peter 2 would REPUDIATE the face-to-face revealtion to the Apostles left as our example which means WRITTEN.
It took 400 years for preachers (self speak) and singing as an ACT (that's legalism) naturally to use the unwashed Bishops own songs to repudiate God's in Christ. If in doubt about Tulsa there is NOT BIBLICAL FUNDING for these groupies so they MUST rob widows and honest working people to have the luxury to go pat one another.
The CHURCH has absolutely no social services mandate: Jesus said let ALMS go from your hand to the hand of the DESTITUTE and no one at Tulsa is destitute so they must be picking the widow's purse.
Jesus commanded OUR prayers be in OUR private closet without public observation: public prayers are ACTS.
You know, these days you do not have to be spirit literate or Bible literate to be the most expensively procured RHETORICIAN the primary meaning of HYPOCRITE which includes SINGERS.
I say that the latest spawn out of the once but never more Christian Colleges swiped from their owners CANNOT read black text on brown paper. You like these "linkys" when Jesus said that if you speak the WORD, the WORLD will hate you. And Paul said that if you want to find Jesus He will be OUTSIDE the camps and marketplaces (Tulsa) and we have to ESCAPE the massed multitudes (beast people) and suffer reproaches.
Christ in the wilderness, without a break, Paul's commands, historic practice and THE meaning of RESTORATION:
Church is A School of Christ
Worship is READING and MUSING the Word of God.
The Lord's Supper is an act of evangelism.
There is NO ROLE for these rhetoricians, singers, musicians and actors: Jesus called them Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES. It is not possible to promote MUSICAL WORSHIP for the SCHOOL OF THE WORD without lying TO God and ABOUT God and stealing the church house of Widows as the Purpose Driven Cultish outbreak of evil.
Christ in the prophets said that it was LUCIFER (Zoe) who introduced wind, string and percussion instruments into the world as the "singing and harp playing prostitute" who attacked Even in a sexual sense in Paul's clear warning.
The Serpent is defined as a musical enchanter(ess).
So, don't be surprised that the left-alive remnant when Jesus came the first time was the 120 native Jews, is a PATTERNISM for just about now.
Jesus told you NOT to go to Tulsa: the kingdom is NOT there but in your heart.
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Only butterflies go to the bright and flickering flames.
