      Jesus said that the Kingdom is within us: it does not come with OBSERVATION which means Religious Observations or operations. Those observations which repudiate Jesus saying that worship is in the SPIRIT as a PLACE in contrast to the PLACE of Jerusalem. That worship is uniquely Giving Heed to the Word which is the only way we non-sorcerers can give our attention (worship) to the WORD which is the Power to Salvation and the prescribed (prophets and apostles) the only BUILDING or EDUCATING resource for the assembly. By direct Command and approved examples that began ONCE A WEEK as a REST day noted as SKHOLE day for education.

      Jacob cursed Levi and commanded that people NOT attend their "synagogues" nor enter into covenant with them (Genesis 49). The godly classes were quarantined from the Temple-State system which was not a COMMAND but a DEATH SENTENCE.

      The pagans were especially fond of creating spectacles of worship where they used magic to create LYING WONDERS to soften up the heads and pick their pockets. Some of the best engineering by Hero and others went into producing machines for doing hard work which defines a "musical instruments" including a simple organ run on water power.

      For those who violate the Logos or Regulative Principle God sends strong delusions which causes the "priesthood" to produce lying wonders. These included speakers, singers, players, actors, jugglers, mimics and others. If one can get a tiny grasp of GOD one will be shamed and disgusted by anyone pretending to LEAD YOU INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD. This displays the MARK of trying to ascend or have Christ descend when THE WORD WE PREACH is near you. Lying Wonders are best understood by being PAUL or Simple Simon Literate about humanoids serving up magical mushrooms, poppy incense or great KoolAid.

      When God is in His Holy Temple let all the earth keep silence before Him. A lamb of the Little Flock (mikros) will accept the old Madison's Elder's invitation "that if you do not agree then just leave." See David Rhoades lecture on home page.

      Philo of Alexandria had already emphasized the ethical qualities of music, spurning the 'effeminate' art of his Gentile surroundings. Similarly, early synagogue song intentionally foregoes artistic perfection, renounces the playing of instruments, and attaches itself entirely to 'the word'the TEXT of the Bible" (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 1971 ed., s.v. "Music")

      IS YOUR EVENING CONGREGATION DISGUISED AS EMPTY PEWS? Especially after the feminine-effeminate focus on "worship rituals" to silence the PATRIARCHAL GOD.

      National Coalition of Men's Ministries head, Daniel Erickson, in most churches, "a man can't be a man," said Daniel Erickson.

      "Eighty percent of pastors are "more in tune to their feminine side" and are artistic, creative, and musical, Erickson said, citing a study done by The Navigators.

      "But "the problem is that 80% of men are not, so 20% of pastors who are more in tune to their male side are trying to help 80% of men."

      "The current preoccupation with the role of women in the church obscures the more serious problem of the perennial absence of men. A Provocative new book argues that Western churches have become "women's clubs," that the emasculation of Christianity is dangerous for the church and society.

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