      Chris, you posted ABOVE. Sorry, I don't have any patience with people who just repeat, repeat and repeat.

      The argument is that PSALLO meant to play an instrument AFTER Paul.

      Lucian of Samosata wrote in ATTIC GREEK and not Koine.

      Therefore, Lucian was speaking as an ATTIC speaker and he was from Syria.

      Lucian and ALL people who speak of PSALLO meaning PLUCK as in plucking a HARP STRING always connect it to older males plucking a harp to seduce a young boy or some other act of prostitution or perversion.

      It doesn't matter who quotes Lucian you cannot have him speaking a form of GREEK a hundred years or so after Paul.

      Psallo NEVER means to play an instrument, much less does it mean SING and PLAY and name an instrument.

      The word PLAY is a fairly simple word. You can play on Broadway, play basketball of play a harp. That you can PLAY a harp can never be used to MEAN that PLAY means "play a harp."

      Psallo NEVER means PLAY A HARP: it means pluck WITH THE FINGERS and NEVER with a plectrum. You will never see anyone PLUCKING an instrument made for the plectrum. You can never find PSALLO meaning to PLUCK a flute with your fingers. Psallo or PLUCK has absolutely NO more musical meaning than the word PLAY. The word ABSOLUTELY excludes anything you are apt do do as MAKING MUSIC when you are supposed to be letting Jesus do the teaching. After all, it is HIS school of the Bible and you cannot even hallucinate a MUSICAL component to the synagogue or ekklesia.

      All of these "quotations" are--as far as I have been able to do THEIR work and chase them down--are deliberate lies. If they are ignorant lies and people get paid to destroy churches then not even ignorance will save them.

      When you are trying to DEFEAT those who have never used instruments and will not BOW TO BAAL you should never quote one of the INSTRUMENTAL writers unless they point you to a DOCUMENT. Tom Burgess and his imitators QUOTES from actual documents but he IS VERY SELECTIVE. I have reviewed his book and posted THE REST OF THE STORY to prove that he is just lying because he MUST have had the documents to PICK from and left out what REPUDIATES every argument he makes and others repeat.

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