Response to Re: I have the pattern!!

After reading this thread, I am reminded of the quote by Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, who when deciding a case involving hard core pornography in the 1960's stated that he could not define it, but "I know it when I see it." I think that is why many who advocate for a pattern are unwilling to state what the pattern is, other than to state that "it is the New Testament." One need only look at the divisions among those who advocate for pattern theology, people who are sincerely seeking the pattern of the New Testament, to see just where this leads. Countless divisions can be seen among these seekers with everything from class rooms, kitchens, gymnasiums (family life centers), number of cups for communion, style of worship, etc. I would state that most are true sincere seekers, but are led in different directions and to different conclusions by the same pattern. Thus, the question arises of why does this pattern, honestly followed by believers, lead to different destinations? And why do those who reach one conclusion, feel compelled to belittle those who reach a different conclusion than themselves? It is a simplistic mind that would argue that they are the only ones to follow the pattern correctly and yet be able to state just what the pattern is. The fear among them is that the true result of their "following the pattern" would be exposed for what it really is, that they themselves have no clue what the pattern is, even though they feel that they "know it when they see it."

...........................THE BOOK

What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

Here is the list of players;

5 Godly Elders
10 Not so Godly Elders
120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
