  • PSALLO is a dirty word

      Mark Henderson, Rick Atchley, Max Lucado etal:

      1. The “Psallo”/Law of Exclusion argument This is a very complicated argument that I address in some detail in the paper, but even there, I only scratch the surface. A lot of trees have died to advance this argument over the years, but here is the gist of it. A form of the Greek verb psallo is used in Ephesians 5:19 where the NIV translates it “make music”, and the argument is that, in the New Testament era, the word literally meant “to sing without instruments.” It just means “sing;” it doesn’t mean “sing and play.”

      It doesn't even take a small limb to quote the Bible and all known evidence.

      The problem is that the evidence doesn’t support the idea that word ever meant to “sing without instruments.” In fact, the same word is used in the Septuagint, the first Christians’ Bible, to refer to the playing of stringed instruments, so it’s hard to imagine that the Holy Spirit would take a word from their Scriptures that means to play an instrument and use that same word to let them know not to play instruments

      The fact is PSALLO simply means to tourch or smite and like the words in english says nothing about playing in instrument. In english if you say "smit the strings of the harp" you still say absolutely nothing about making music. If you say "smite the strings and make melody" you still have only a "series of single tones" and that does not make music. Because "melody" as tunefullness belongs to the 19th century and harmony always meant UNISON and came to mean NON-unison after the year 1200 there is nothing 'musical' in the entire Bible or early church history: God called it noise and literature calls it sorcery (Rev 18) or perversion.

      The deeper you get the worse it smells: can you think of any reason why we and many other churches would see al massive outbreak of "lying wonders"?

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