    Bro. Curtis; I was referred to Ezekiel 28. The following is an opinion of that chapter. If this is to be interpreted as correct, then no, Satan was not a musician.

    "Musician"? "Worship Leader?"

    The idea that Satan was a musician is based on a difficult line in v.13. The verse describes how this exalted person is adorned. The debated phrase appears alongside a list of jewels he wears.

    The KJV speaks of 'tabrets [tambourines] and pipes' but the language, connected to that of the 'stones' may well be describing something like the 'settings and mountings', a further description of his 'high priestly breastpiece'.

    Of course, if the language of this chapter is not based on a story about Satan but on that of the first man who was 'king and priest' to God, then even if the phrase refers to instruments, there is nothing here about Satan being a musician or worship leader. Instead, it would just add a little to the picture of mankind acting as "priest" to God.

    Hope this helps... [​IMG]

    I have no scriptural support, but I believe Satan is a musician -- but he's always off key.

    Bro. Curtis:

    I'm sorry you got bad jokes instead of serious answers to your honest question. Maybe no one wanted to take the time to search the Bible and find out what God had to say. [​IMG]
