Rhapsody Spiritually Non-Criminal? Sometimes

Delight can be faithfulness (spiritual lawfulness) to God in numerous and assorted manners challenged by seemed and supported spiritual crime (spiritual lawlessness):

DANCING the night away joyfully, in the spirit of reconciliation, was (is) spiritually non - criminal - "Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing". Luke 15:25 SINGING in delight from the depth of gut(s), in the spirit of thankfulness unto God, was (is) spiritual lawfulness - "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart unto the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ". Ephesians 5:19-20 JOKING AND JOY (LAUGHTER), triggered by a statement made not straightforward (from the perspective that Jesus knew Mary did not know who he was - i.e. joking) yet not obscene and intentionally non-harmful with the response of Mary's joy was (is) pleasing to God - "Jesus said unto her, woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thee? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus said unto to her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus said unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God". John 20:15-17 Godly delight even prevailed (prevails) IN EMPTY AND UNHABITED PLACES - "For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat; the woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet; Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he; And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seeketh thou? or, Why talkest with her?" John 4:8,19,26,27 Appropriate delight even championed (champions) barricades of PERCEIVED UNWORTHINESS AND DEGRADATION - "And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name". Acts 4:40-41 God pleasing contentment even stabilized (stabilizes) SURROUNDING DEBAUCHERY - "And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy and not sacrifice: for I am not to come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance". Matthew 9:11-13

Uncomprehensive, the accompaniment (co-existence) of dancing, singing, joking (laughter), to deserted places, perceived shame, and surrounding debauchery imparts rhapsody (rapturous delight.) Therefore, Charles (Chuckie) III, Caleb (Charles), Aireale, Adrian, Maya, Joan, Charles Sr., and My Beloved, delight does exist spiritually lawful in numerous assortments. Strive and thrive in rhapsody. Originated by Charles L. Robinson Jr. of Edifying Christian Publications.
