    Ps 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I

    not seen the righteous forsaken, nor hisseed begging

    bread.

    DAVID SAID

    I have been young, and now am old; I have been taught bythose before me what caused the apostasy in the 1800s and

    what would cause it again in the 1900s.

    I have lived to see they were correct and, as David passed

    his experience on, I want to pass that same information on

    to you for the 2000s

    TODAY I AM SAYING

    IF YOU ARE UNDER 50

    YOU HAVE NEVER LIVED

    THROUGH THOSE DAYS

    NotMissionary societies

    My generation quit preaching

    on instrumental music & missionary

    societies & Bible authority so your

    generation will have another division.

    The really disturbing part was a statement made by Ron Cook, a

    member of the Community Church of Christ, who predicted that the

    music issue in churches of Christ will fade away once the present

    generation of youth in the church reaches maturity and begins toassume roles of leadership. He said, Instrumental music is already a

    part of youth events that happen at churchesteenagers love Christian

    music. Music is a fact of live. Its inevitable.

    13/45

    1. IF YOU CLAIM INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IS

    WRONG BECAUSE THERE IS NO AUTHORITY

    FOR IT. WHAT ABOUT CHURCH BUILDINGS?

    THERE IS NO AUTHORITY FOR THEM, IS

    THERE?

    2. IF IT IS WRONG FOR CHURCHES TO BUILD

    KITCHENS AND FELLOWSHIP

    OVER THE PAST TWENTY YEARS SOME CHURCHES OF

    CHRIST HAVE ADOPTED INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC FROM

    THE PROTESTANT CHURCHES

    THE PROTESTANT CHURCHES ADOPTED IT FROM THE

    CATHOLIC CHURCHES EVEN THOUGH ALL THEIRFOUNDERS OPPOSED IT VEHEMENTLY

    THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ADOPTED IT WHEN THE

    POPE WAS GIVEN A WHITE PIANO ABOUT 1100 YEARS

    AFTER THE CHURCH BEGAN. THE POPE FINALLY DIDINTRODUCE IT INTO THEIR SERVICES AFTER HE HAD

    THE INSTRUMENT FOR A WHILE.

    USING INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC IN WORSHIPWAS

    NEVER MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE AND WAS NEVER

    USED BY NEW TESTAMENT CHRISTIANS.

    INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC WAS NEVER USED BY ANYWHO CLAIMED TO BE CHRISTIANS FOR 1100 YEARS.
