In the Old Testament people were under the old law. They had burnt offerings (Genesis 8:20) and all sorts of other laws that were to be fulfilled in order to be fulfilling the word of God. Today we live under the new law. The New Testament. The old law was nailed to the cross Colossians 2:14 We are to sing and make melody in our heart, not from a instrument. In the book of Matthew chapter 26 verse 30 it speaks of the disciples singing a hymn, not coming together to play songs or instruments. Paul wrote in 1Corinthians 11:1 "Imitate me ,just as I also imitate Christ. == == The purpose of Christian Music is to praise the Lord. Here is one of many scriptures referring to a musical instrument. Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. Psalm 33:2-3 Many instruments were used in worship in the temple in Jerusalem by the Jews along with singers. Various instruments are mentioned in the final Psalm,150: (Psalm 150:1-6) 150 Praise Jah, YOU people! Praise God in his holy place. Praise him in the expanse of his strength. 2 Praise him for his works of mightiness. Praise him according to the abundance of his greatness. 3 Praise him with the blowing of the horn. Praise him with the stringed instrument and the harp. 4 Praise him with the tambourine and the circle dance. Praise him with strings and the pipe. 5 Praise him with the cymbals of melodious sound. Praise him with the clashing cymbals. 6 Every breathing thing-let it praise Jah. Praise Jah, YOU people! Later instrumental music is certainly implied for Christians at Eph 5:18,19 (Ephesians 5:18-20) 18 ..., but keep getting filled with spirit, 19 speaking to yourselves with psalms and praises to God and spiritual songs, singing and accompanying yourselves with music in YOUR hearts to Jehovah, 20 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ giving thanks . . . Thus Musical Instruments had a place in both Christian and pre-Christian worship.

Does silence amount to acceptance?

Silence does not necessarily indicate that there is acceptance. A common phrase in the law is that "Silence is compliance." This refers to very specific contexts, usually in litigation. For instance, if a party is sued, and it fails to contest any of the specific allegations in its reply, it is considered to have admitted that allegation as true. In other contexts, silence is not acceptance. For instance, in making contracts, silence is almost never considered acceptance (there are some rare, unique exceptions.)

What are properties or elements of music?

Music, for humans, is an art. Some of its properties include tone, pitch and volume. In addition, there are various features of sound associated with differing instruments or voices. Voices, for example, can be tenor, soprano or bass. Instruments have associated sounds also, such as the stringed instruments and the reed instruments and the horns. Even drums have tonality, and a number of percussion instruments have a wide range of tone -- for example, the xylophone and the steel drums. Elements may have more to do with the transcription of music -- the writing of it in musical notation. There are symbols for notes which indicate pitch and proportional length, and various symbols and signs to indicate style of how a note should sound. One of the characteristics of music is that humans, in general, have a deep appreciation for it. Rhythm and tone seem to affect humans moreso than any other creature.

What cockpit instrument will indicate jet engine failure?

If one of the engines fails, numerous instruments will indicate a severe irregularity. Most aircraft will have an auditory "chime" upon engine failure. Most pilots will first notice that a bright "master caution" light is illuminated, a light that is rarely illuminated and therefore attention-grabbing. Another obvious indication is that the N1 gauge, measuring the temperature of air entering the gas generator, will indicate a rapidly dropping temperature on the failed engine, inconsistent with temperature(s) on the other engine(s). In addition, pneumatic systems that provide high-pressure bleed air for aircraft pressurization and heating will indicate a failure relative to the failed engine, as well as the respective electrical generation that the failed engine will no longer be providing. Moreover, since most monitoring instruments have gauges for all engines, an inconsistency in instruments between the failed engine and the functional engine(s) itself will indicate some sort of failure. In short, on most aircraft, a failed engine will be overwhelmingly evident to a trained pilot through virtually any system's monitoring instruments.

What is the advantages and disadvantages of analog and digital instrument?

Advantages and Disadvantages of the Digital InstrumentsThese days there is greater trend of using the digital instruments for measurement of all the important quantities like weight, length, temperature, humidity, current, voltage, rpm and even the blood sugar level. There are also digital instruments for measurement of the blood pressure, heart beat rate, and others.Here are some of the advantages of the digital instruments over the analogue instruments:1) They are very easy to read.2) Since there are very few moving parts in the electronic instruments, they are usually more accurate than the analogue instruments. Even the human error involved in reading these instruments is very less, which adds to the accuracy of digital instruments.3) The electronic items tend to be cheaper than the mechanical items.4) The data from the instruments can be recorded for future reference.5) The output of the digital devices can be obtained in the computerThere are also some disadvantages of the digital instruments. Here they are:1) Sometimes they tend to indicate erratic values due to faulty electronic circuit or damaged display.2) In case of high humidity and corrosive atmosphere the internal parts may get damaged and indicate the faulty values.3) Sometimes these instrument show some readings even though there is no applied measurable parameter.On the whole, the advantages of the digital instruments outdo the disadvantages, which is why they have become highly popular. You can find digital instruments in the cars, air planes, motor cycles, and also in places like air ports, railway stations, public places etc. The digital clocks are one of the most widely used instruments for the personal use and also in public and private places. The trend is towards the digital instruments since they are convenient to use and also have excellent looks. In future their use is sure to increase much more.
