  • Re: Is Sunday School Biblical?

      Moses was told how to conduct Sabbath School in Exodus 18. Sub-groups as small as 10 had a designated teacher of The Covenant of Grace. (Abrahamic). The later more organized synagogues were held where ten heads of families existed.

      When the leaders led the people into idolatry (musical worship of the Egyptian trinity), God abandoned them to "worship the starry host" (Acts 7 etc.)

      God sentenced them to captivity and death and ordained the Jacob-cursed Levi tribe to conduct their neo-Babylonian sacrifices behind closed gates.

      Christ the ROCK ordained the Qahal (synagogue) or Church of Christ in the wilderness. The small sub-groups came to gather every REST day (rarely Saturday). "Work" excluded even "sending out ministers of God."

      This was INCLUSIVE of Rest, Reading and Rehearsing the Word.
      This was EXCLUSIVE of vocal or instrument rejoicing including elevated forms of rhetoric.

      The synagogue always existed but under various names: Qahal is still used by many Synagogues. The Campbells tried to restore:

      Church is A School of Christ
      Worship is Reading and Musing the Word of God

      What they were commanded to do in "synagogue" which never changed even when it was more codified after Babylon. Jesus rejected "alms" with attention-getting sounds and commanded that prayers be YOURS and in sected. The PRAY-ER was the READ-ER and they always affirmed that there is ONE GOD.

      [linked image]

      Both Jew and Gentile were "wise unto salvation" because the synagogue was the Gentile option to escape the pagan "worship services." That pattern never changed.

      Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

      Jesus PATTERNED what the Spirit OF Christ ordained in the wilderness.

      Luke 4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
      Luke 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
      Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
      Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
      Luke 4:20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

      Paul's practice and direct command continued the Church in the Wilderness by rejecting any of the performance roles (Romans 15) and commanded them to speak that which is written for our learning with one mind and one voice. Disciples go to Bible Class as the UNIQUE meaning of worship in the New Testament.

      That was the historic practice of the church until both preaching (sermonizing) and singing were imposed after Constantine in 373. Even then only the Psalms were cantillated until well after John Calvin.

      So your husband has Scripture and History on his side. Sunday School was rejected because the publishers gave the elders no authority.

      What Jesus attended, commanded, what Paul attended and commanded and what history affirms has no role for either male or female to teach what the publishers "have written for their learning."

      Children are NOT fools: They need to hear "that which was written for their learning" as a visual aid that the leaders honor the Words of Christ in the Prophets and Apostles as the ONLY educational foundation for building the church.

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