  • "Just your tradition" may be the most divisive, damnable lie ever told based on numbers.

      People who lie that IT IS NOT A SALVATION ISSUE do not understand that God said that He Hated those who took instruments into the holy place and caused God to sentence them to Assyrian Captivity with no redemption possible and He said I WILL NOT PASS BY AGAIN. For a short period the SONGS in the Temple became HOWLING which defines the effeminate Praise Singing." This persona of Vileness causes Godly people to flee Babylon.

      Another thing God hates is those WHO SOW DISCORD among brethren. The Purpose Driven Cult intends to "infiltrate and divert" and this was confessed by Tom Haddon who had a slipped lip to early. The CULT believes that they can LOOSE half of the owners and RECOVER their "evangelism" by sucking in Seekers (a Term coined by Adolph Hitler to fool the Human Fodder to lose their place.

      To say that is a CONSERVATIVE or TRADITIONALISTS or LEGALISTIC Church of Christ heritage is to prove that they are NOT APT to teach the Word as it HAS BEEN TAUGHT or they are truly infiltrating and diverting as a hostile takeover because they have a LUST FOR POWER. I believe that evil is bound up in one man.

      Psalm has the same meaning as a Song: both
      Can be read
      Can be recited
      Can be sung
      Can be sung to an aaccompaniment:

      The first instrument of choice is the harp of God: the human voice
      Or it can be accompanied with other instruments.

      However, neither in Hebrew nor English are psalms metrical meaning that they can be chanted in a measured or tuneful sense.

      There no true psalms which are sung TO a harp unless that instrument is named.

      Why we know that NO ONE ever sang any Biblical text including the Psalms.

      Modern exegetes do not agree in this matter. For a time many would admit no metre at all in the Psalms. Davison (Hast., "Dict. of the Bible", s. v.) writes: "
      .....though metre is NOT discernible in the Psalms, does not follow that rhythm is excluded".

      This rhythm, however, "defies analysis and systematization". Driver ("Introd. to Lit. of O. T.", New York, 1892, 339) admits in Hebrew poetry
      ....."no metre in the strict sense of the term".
      .....Exegetes who find metre in the Psalms are of four schools,
      .....according as they explain Hebrew metre by quantity, by the number of syllables, accent, or by both quantity and accent. (from The Catholic Encyclopedia)


      Up to the Edict of Milan (AD 313), the psalms were interspersed with lessons.

      By the time of Gregory I (circa 600), the Mass and Office had assumed a fixed shape and antiphonal psalmody (the chanting of a psalm alternately by two choirs) and responsorial psalmody (when the congregation responded to a psalm sung by a cantor) were institutionalized.The distinction between these types later faded.

      A Cantor is a Chanter: The Jews cantillated which is Paul's SPEAK. Both singing AND melody (or grace) was IN THE HEART to specificially exclude the external meaning of Psallo which is a warfare word.

      You could not sing TUNEFULLY nor could you accompany ANY of "that which is written for our LEARNING" (Rom 15 which defines the assembly inclusively and exclusively.)

      In the 16th century, Protestant churches encouraged congregational psalm singing by adopting metrical versions in the vernacular. An important early translation was Clèment Marot's, the basis of the Calvinist psalter. A repertory of tunes came into being; these were set in a simple chordal style in collections which included Loys Bourgeois's complete psalter (1563), widely recognized as a standard version. Some later settings were more contrapuntal; Le Jeune and others dropped the tunes and composed what amounted to free motets.

      That's MUCH too early to be one of the SINS of the ANTI-instrumental Church of Christ.

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