Quote# 68913

With all the many references to musical instruments, there is one instrument that is NEVER mentioned! The DRUM! Why is that? The drum was a very common instrument in Egypt and the lands around Israel. And yet the DRUM is NEVER mentioned in a King James Bible.

Did the Lord just forget to include the DRUM or is there another reason?

Is it because — drums are associated with voodoo, shamanism, paganism and magic rituals?



When the first blacks from Africa were converted to Christianity they knew the power and evil influence of DRUMS. And the converted blacks strictly forbid the use of drums! They referred to the drums as "the Devil's drum".



One simple guideline for Christian music is NO DRUMS!

1 Chronicles 13:8 - "And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets."

What's a timbrel, Terry? Hmmm?

Psalm 149:

" Praise ye the LORD.
Sing unto the LORD a new song,
and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him:
let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance:
let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp."

The dictionary defines "timbrel" as a "small drum or tamborine".

Up yours, Terry.

The bible doesn't mention the synthesizer either. Or the piano. Or the wurlitzer. Or the internet, so get off it.

Think I'd get banned for posting about how happy I am to play the drums?

They don't make mention of pianos or pipe organs either, to my admittedly limited knowledge.

Christian music already sucks and needs all the help it can get. Banning drums from it would make it even more of a joke.

I guess worship leaders should ditch their guitars in favor of the lute. Oh ya, microphones are way out.

Yes no little drummer boy.

I'm going to make a band without bass or drums and call us "The Beatless"

I read about the afterlife

Does that mean the only christmas song I can stand is no longer allowed?

The Bible also says nothing about the following: video games, bacon cheeseburgers, the trade deficit, air hockey, New Hollywood filmmakers, The Great Depression, nose jobs, and "Dancing in the Dark."

Everybody knows about the harps we get when we get to heaven, yet there's little mention of the Accordion Satan himself hands you when you go to hell, where Lady of Spain plays 24/7.

(Thanks, in part to Gary Larsen)

Theres only one thing worse than an accordion = two accordions.

The drums. The DRUMS! Ow, my ear drums.

Well, I dont play drums all to well, but I do play Bass like a mutha fuka. I also play slap and tap style, which is percussive, so I suppose that is something like playing drums.

:-P

Im glad my percussive sound scares this Terry freak.

Out of curiosity, does it mention the piano?

No pianos!

Actually, it was the white slavers who banned drums since they were a way for slaves to communicate with each other. Nice to see you agree with them.

I like how he casually mentions the Africans were converted to Christianity and recognized evil drumming like they weren't kidnapped, dragged half a world away, forced to labor in captivity, raped, mutilated, tortured and killed.

I suggest you remove the timpanic membrane from your inner ear, then... clearly, God did not put drums in your ear, Satan did.

With all the many references to vegetables, there is one vegetable that is NEVER mentioned! The BUTTERNUT SQUASH!!!!! Why is that? The BUTTERNUT SQUASH!1!!! was a very common instrument in Egypt and the lands around Israel. And yet the BUTTERNUT SQUASH!!11!!!! is NEVER mentioned in a King James Bible.

Did the Lord just forget to include the BUTTERNUT SQUASH!!!!1!!! or is there another reason?

Is it because — BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!11!!11!! are associated with butter, nuts and squash?



When the first blacks from Africa were converted to Christianity they knew the power and evil influence of BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!11!!1!!111! And the converted blacks strictly forbid the use of BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!1!!! They referred to the BUTTERNUT SQUASHES as "the Devil's BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!!!!".


I don't eat BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!1!1!! Fuck you I'm more moral than you because I don't eat fucking BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!!11!!!1 lolololololololoL!!!!!!!!! BY not eating BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!!!1!!1 I am better than you, you evil BUTTERNUT SQUASH111!11!!-eating degenerates.

Yeah, bow before my moral superiority since I have managed to discern the immorality of BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!!!!!!!!!!


God this guy is pathetic!

They referred to the drums as "the Devil's drum".

Doesn't adding the qualifier "devil's" directly imply the existence of other, non-devilish types of drum? Or am I being way too grammatically literal here?

One simple guideline for Christian music is NO DRUMS!

If you were to add this and all the countless other prohibitions and exhortations, of any given religion, regarding music together and then distil the resulting list down into a single expression encompassing all of them, you'd pretty much always end up with "NO FUN," or, in quite a few cases, "NO MUSIC."

Edit: In fact, come to think of it, apply that to any authoritarian religion, especially the Abrahamic ones, and the entirety of its edicts regarding how people should live and you still get "NO FUN," and, in quite a few cases, "NO LIVING."
