      In John Waddey's article (above):

      There are 14 points

      3 references to "Christ" total in 2 of the points (both toward the end)

      3 Bible references total (1 Timothy 3:6, Revelation 18:13, Mark 11:15-17)

      Brother Crump stated, "All Waddey has done is to admonish churches of Christ to follow what Christ teaches in the New Testament."

      The facts speak for themselves. There is a whole lot of opinion of man in the article (above).

      I would be thrilled to read where John Waddey has written or taught about stories of Jesus in the gospels SUCH AS the following:

      -Matthew 9:9-13 (Jesus did not come for the righteous but the unrighteous. The sick need a doctor.)
      -Matthew 18:21-35 (The servant being forgiven by the king for an enormous debt but refusing to forgive a fraction of such to another.)
      -Matthew 21:28-32 (The tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the kingdom ahead of the religious self-righteous Pharisees.)
      -Luke 7:36-50 (The sinful woman is forgiven by Jesus and Simon is upset. He who is forgiven much loves much. He who is forgiven little loves little.)
      -Luke 15:11-32 (The foolish, wasteful son receives love and acceptance from his father instead of ridicule and rejection.)
      -Luke 18:9-14 (The Pharisee does not go home justified because he does not see his need for mercy. The tax collector goes home justified because he begs for mercy.)
      -John 5:42 (As part of Jesus reply to the Pharisees who are upset he has healed on the Sabbath, he says, "I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.")

      -How about it John? If you are reading this...

      I read your theological minutia drivel. Put off the old man and put on the new. Begin teaching Christ crucified. Teach the "GOOD" news of God's grace offered freely to all who will believe through Jesus. Do not make it harder (or easier) to be a Christian than Jesus and Scripture do. Do not add hoops and man-made rules where God has not. Do not preach a Pharisee gospel. This is my sincere encouragement and challenge to you brother.

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