  • Music and Doctrinal Changes—the Strategies
    • Donnie Cruz (no login)
      Posted Feb 25, 2006 9:36 AM

      You (yet to unashamedly and boldly identify yourself) and others in the Change Army—conveniently pick verses from picked Old Testament books (Psalms but not Leviticus) to justify your borrowed musical and other doctrines.

      You and others in the Change Army have gotten your advanced Ch.D. degree(s) from the University of Church Intrusion, specializing in Tricky Strategies and Schemes.

      Go ahead and use your childhood experiences to justify your motives. Blame it all on your “dunking-only-to-get-wet-but-not-in-order-to-have-your-sins-forgiven-in-the-blood-of-Christ.”

      A testament is a covenant—you very well know that!!!! The Old Testament (Covenant) is HISTORY and A HISTORY. We study and learn from “history.” While there are eternal principles contained in the Old Testament—the New Testament is replete with instructions, commands and admonitions for Christians. I realize you despise God’s truth revealed in the New Covenant because you do not comprehend that Christian living and discipleship is not easy. Yes, you detest the NT checklist, but yet you’re adding more to it from the OT.

      We are commanded [that’s right—this one is one of the many, many “checklist” items] to “study … rightly dividing the word of truth.”

      Here’s the truth [and further explanation from your borrowed theology is unnecessary here] found in many passages, in Hebrews 8:

        [6] But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
        [7] For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
        [8] For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
        [9] Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
        [10] For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
        [13] In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

      You’re correct—God is not tricky! You and your cohorts are!

      Now … you are questioning the integrity of the Bible that is replete with God’s truth and will for His people? Is this what I’m hearing from you now?

      No, I do not hate Madison—and BTW, I have approved your post and I am aware of your “request.” You are the one who hates the church you have basically left—but who refuses to leave it alone.

    ...........................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)
