      At no time did PSALLO ever mean PLAY AN INSTRUMENT. Never, ever!

      The resources which build on existing definitions and assuredly do not do original research can ONLY show you how a word is USED. That does not DEFINE IT.

      PSALLO meant to PULL with the fingers and let go to leave a mark or make a sound which was "musical" when connected to the BOW. However, a single TWANG doeth not music make: not even melody because you need several SINGLE tones in a sequence.

      PSALLO excluded using a PICK or instrument like the favorite golden plectron.. You CANNOT psallo with a guitar pick or piano or organ or drum or flute.

      The word PSALLO therefore is NEVER used with anything other than the lyre or bow. It never appears with a FLUTE.

      What the DEFINITIONS means is that PSALLO often appears as the PLUCKING "pulling with the fingers" connected to the HARP. If I say STRUM that means nothing until I tell you WHAT to strum.

      That is why you CANNOT ever find a Bible passage where Psallo or Zamar is used to say "pluck a harp." It simply CANNOT be done. In the Bible you ALWAYS have three components if you want to SING AND PLAY THE HARP: 1. Sing and 2. play or pluck and 3 define WHAT is to be plucked.

      If you are going to quote scholars I need for you to give me the scholar, the name of their book and the chapter and verse. Then, I can ALWAYS as I have done to Burgess, Johnson, Knowles etal prove that thy simply quote quotes of quotes and have NEVER read the material and ALWAYS fail to tell you what was happening when Alexander the Great PLUCKED and the name of WHAT he plucked and the Purpose of his plucking. Which in all of Burgess PROOFS for Psallo have to do with older males plucking the harp to prepare the "youth minister" for pederasty.

      I can find MOST of the original writings the WORD COMPLIERS have put into books (Webster didn't DEFINE) and I challenge you or anyone to find ONE SINGLE EXAMPLE where PSALLO means PLAY THE HARP. Then, the definitons are absolute: you CANNOT use that to apply to anything which does not have STRINGS and you are OUTLAWED from using even your fingernails: you must PULL and LET GO to make a thwack or twang which is NOT music or melody.

      Similar words were used to pluck the HEART STRINGS and that is Paul's DIRECT COMMAND. IN the heart or WITH the heart means a PLACE because Jesus died to remove PLACES built with human hands or worship PERFORMED by human hands. That pretty well leaves out musical instruments and "the idolatry of talent."

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