      People who are consumed with what WE GONNA do in making music simply do not and probably cannot grasp that Jesus said that the Kingdom of God is within us and does not come with RELIGIOUS OBSERVATIONS.

      http://www.piney.com/Luke.17.Kingdom.Not.Observation.html

      strong delusions are marked by lying wonders which are specificially religious observations of rhethoric, singing, playing instruments and drama. Since music from mystery MEANS "making the lambs dumb before the slaughter" and "silencing the voice of the victim" that INVISIBLE MUSIC word is the MARK that people are not going to understand Monotheism since they themselves try to fill the role of God in Christ as the ONE Comfoter- mediator.

      Since Theophilus INVENTED the word "trias" or trinity one wonders how people can INVENT a trinity which gives THEM access to A Holy Spirit Person who leads them "beyond the sacred pages."

      Of course, they cannot do that without repudiating Jesus of Nazareth as God's Master Teacher and leader into the spiritual world.

      Theophilus Chapter XXII.-Why God is Said to Have Walked.

      You will say, then, to me: "You said that God ought not to be contained in a place, and how do you now say that He walked in Paradise? "Hear what I say. The God and Father, indeed, of all cannot be contained, and is not found in a place, for there is no place of His rest;
      .....but His Word, through whom He made all things, being His power and His wisdom,
      .....assuming the person of the Father and Lord of all, went to the garden in the person of God, and conversed with Adam. For the divine writing itself teaches us that Adam said that he had heard the voice.
      .....But what else is this voice but the Word of God, who is also His Son?

      Not as the poets and writers of myths talk of the sons of gods begotten from intercourse [with women], but as truth expounds, the Word, that always exists, residing within the heart of God. For before anything came into being He had Him as a counsellor, being His own mind and thought.

      But when God wished to make all that He determined on, He begot this Word, uttered,47 the first-born of all creation, not Himself being emptied of the Word [Reason],
      .....but having begotten Reason,
      .....and always conversing with His Reason. And hence the holy writings teach us, and all the spirit-bearing [inspired] men, one of whom, John, says,
      ....."In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,"
      ..... showing that at first God was alone, and the Word in Him.
      .....Then he says, "The Word was God; all things came into existence through Him;
      .....and apart from Him not one thing came into existence."
      .....The Word, then, being God, and being naturally
      .....[That is, being produced by generation, not by creation.]produced from God
      ,
      whenever the Father of the universe wills,
      .....He sends Him to any place; and He, coming, is both heard and seen,
      .....being sent by Him, and is found in a place.

      John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings:
      .....and the word which ye hear is not mine,
      .....but the Fathers which sent me.


      note 46 The annotators here warn us against supposing that "person" is used as it was afterwards employed in discussing the doctrine of the Trinity, and show that the word is used in its original meaning, and with reference to an actor taking up a mask and personating a character.

      note47 Proforiko/j, the term used of the Logos as manifested; the Word as uttered by the Father, in distinction from the Word immanent in Him. [Theophilus is the first author who distinguishes between the Logos (cap. x, supra) and the Logos proforiko/j; the Word internal, and the Word emitted. Kaye's Justin, p. 171.]

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