This is from your first link, AC, and I think it's very important information to post: Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1335380
"How Revivalist Preachers WorkIf you'd like to see a revivalist preacher at work, there are probably several in your city. Go to the church or tent early and sit in the rear, about three-quarters of the way back. Most likely repetitive music will be played while the people come in for the service."
"The "Voice Roll" TechniqueA "voice roll" is a patterned, paced style used by hypnotists when inducing a trance. It is also used by many lawyers, several of whom are highly trained hypnotists, when they desire to entrench a point firmly in the minds of the jurors. A voice roll can sound as if the speaker were talking to the beat of a metronome or it may sound as though he were emphasizing every word in a monotonous, patterned style. The words will usually be delivered at the rate of 45 to 60 beats per minute, maximizing the hypnotic effect."
I was raised in the pentecostal churches.
I got shivers down my spine when I read these links because they are so true.
I LIVED THEM.
CHRISTIANS READ THOSE LINKS.
Me too. I hear ya.
Another thing is the repetitive verses used in Christian worship songs today. It seems like they sing the same verse over and over again to build up the dramatic tension. I never liked that.
When I got to reading the Bible more, I noticed that all of the songs written in the Bible didn't have repetitive verses. Such as the song of Moses in Exodus 15:
"“I will sing to the Lord,
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!
2 The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
3 The Lord is a man of war;
The Lord is His name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea;
His chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.
5 The depths have covered them;

They sank to the bottom like a stone."
