  • Happy Easter Sunday 2013 at Madison
    • Donnie (Login Donnie.Cruz)
      Posted Mar 31, 2013 5:23 PM

      For a number of years after the church upheaval in 2001, it was either an "Easter drama worship" or an "interactive Easter worship." (I think the drama has run out of dramatic themes or scenes to portray the resurrection of Christ every year.)

      In 2013, it was something else -- at the moment I have no word or words to describe all the events that occurred at the Madison "worship center." No, it wasn't about the children and the Easter bunny or Easter rabbit or the Easter eggs. Rather, adults were involved in the Easter flowering of several crosses in the auditorium -- and this was done during the Lord's Supper while the shepherds' [employed] "Worship Leader" and his co-worship leading team of two men and two WOMEN were on stage performing.

      [I'm offering the opportunity for Scripture or anyone who's willing to describe in more detail what took place today at "the worship center." Perhaps, Scripture can document for us what took place from the start of the Communion when the quartet went on stage to deliver the rehearsed, programmed worship, the "poem/narrative" reading, etc.?]

      There's so much confusion surrounding the "Easter" observance. At least from the standpoint of what the Bible teaches about the suffering and death of Christ about which we commemorate "in remembrance of me." The New Testament refers to: "this is my body" and "this cup is the new testament in my blood." That's about the Lord's Supper. That is not about the resurrection.

      I believe that the "progressive" messengers in "progressive" churches are sending the wrong message. The "Easter Sunday" celebration at Madison and other "progressive" congregations of the church of Christ is so programmed, in the first place, designed for a TV production. "God's [semi-professional] elite singers" are ON STAGE to perform during this [pagan-originated-in-the-name-of-religion] Easter celebration. And that's supposed to be concerning the "resurrection" of Christ.

      The placement of "the Lord's Supper" [to remember the Lord's death] in the midst this Happy Easter "celebration" is not necessarily what the New Testament instructs the church to do.

      Here's the dilemma that the church should be concerned about. We observe the Lord's suffering and death on the cross on the first day of the week -- this is scriptural. But shouldn't the Happy Easter proponents be willing to prepare to skillfully program EVERY FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK the Easter celebration with the Lord's Supper as part of it?

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