      What’s worse than a person who abuses this thread as a means to bash and criticize the Church of Christ? It’s a person who abuses this thread as a means to bash and criticize the Church of Christ but WHO NEVER WAS A MEMBER AT ALL. Worse still is someone who wraps themselves in the shroud of anonymity.

      Donnie called our attention to the seemingly obscure fact that, amid “Anonymous’” personal rages against us, s/he managed to slip in that s/he had never been baptized in the Church of Christ; therefore s/he had never been a member! That really takes the cake!

      “Anonymous” was really slick. S/he had read the introductory guidelines to this thread but chose to ignore the fact that we had invited responses only from FORMER MEMBERS of the Church of Christ. So “Anonymous” barged in, hurling vain and vague accusations against us while ironically trying to gain our sympathy with a mountain of verbiage about physical abuse, that somehow the Church of Christ was responsible for it all. (I’ll even admit that I got lost in the “problem list” and just about forgot that s/he was not a member.) Then when we sought more specifics from him/her, “Anonymous” turned viciously defensive and hotly accused us of being deceitful, of having a hidden agenda. That is indeed most revealing.

      Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that the deception lies with “Anonymous,” who deliberately attempted to divert our attention not only toward her “problems” caused by an allegedly abusive Church of Christ, but also away from the fact that s/he was not even a member of the Church of Christ. Thus “Anonymous,” filled with venom and hate, slipped in the back door to jab and punch the Church of Christ. That is truly deceitful!

      “Anonymous,” acting the wounded rabbit, claimed to have forgiven us for our alleged “deceit,” but the forgiveness is misplaced. We should be the ones forgiving “Anonymous,” for having abused this thread to publish his/her slander and hatred against the Church of Christ.

    ...........................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;

    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)
