I believe that there are canons against some type of dancing.
In Romania adding instruments to worship or dancing is a definitive no no in my understanding.
In the end, lets not forget, worship equals pleasing God not people.
Is the dancing directed at God or directed at pleasing and entertaining people? Or tremor like in pentecostalism, tremor that is found in
shamanism too when they contact sick angels? Dervils do dancing like spinning when they contact sick angels.
Can anyone respond to this using ancient books like Book of Enoch, Cave of Treasuries:
Who invented musical instruments?
Why Noah was upset with his son?
In Rusia a girl danced with a sacred object and turned into stone, marble.
I try to rememeber where I found linked blasphemy with instrumental music and dancing at worship.
Maybe I am wrong. Maybe one reason orthodox don't let faithfull go to other denominations is that because of Sola
Imagination what they do may be blasphemy and thus you don't want to be part of it. Or I may be wrong.
True, David sung Psalms with musical instruments however MAYBE this was not worship. I am 100% behind this, protestants try as much as possible to please God, however they don't know how. Protestantism may be a punishment, I mean moving to it from Orthodoxy of first 1000 years when all Europe was orthodox. Defending it means defending punishment means defending a Christianity WITHOUT food for eternal life John 6:53-54, baptism of children, confession etc. Speaking for orthodoxy means to ask for punishment to end. History is a valid science and 2000 years of historical documents even if not inspired by God, can shed the light on how to please God. Pastors can become orthodox priests and give full christianity to their people if 50% christianity is beautifull 100% is awesome.
That's what I was thinking of. Thanks.
Following Ortho_Cat's last post, Orthodox Churches in Ghana actually do incorporate some dancing AFAICT, at least following the Liturgy.
Don't know if it qualifies as dancing, but your comment brought this thread to mind...
And glad I could help, Brandy.
I'm happy to have the help!
