      The doubting Jews refused baptism to the Gentiles even though the Great Commission was to all nations.

      Acts 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell [poured forth from a greater height] on all them which heard the word.
      Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also WAS [at Pentecost] poured out the GIFT of the Holy Ghost.


      How did they know that the Spirit was at work?

      Acts 10:46 BECAUSE they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.


      When the glorified Jesus returned AS PROMISED "He poured out what was seen and heard." This had nothing to do with their salvation. The meaning of the IS IS that Peter dared the racist Jews to tell him that he could not baptize Gentiles.

      Then answered Peter,

      Acts 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

      Acts 10:48 And he COMMANDED them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.


      Why would anyone want to FORBID baptism or COMMAND baptism of one already saved by "speaking Hebrew"?

      Cornelius was a godfearer honored by God. However, Baptism was a REQUEST for A holy spirit or A good conscience. The person's own spirit now made pure or holy was able to read or hear the Word. They didn't get a punched ticket on the Joy Buss to Heaven,. Rather, one is washed in water INTO the Word or into the School of Christ.

      People who dispute all of the clear connections between baptism and the remission of sins read the last part of Ephesians 2 but can never ask FROM what are we made SAFE by Grace (which teaches) and Faith (which obeys."

      In 2 Corinthians 3 no one can read BLACK text on WHITE paper or HEAR it when it is READ in the synagogue as the one-piece pattern for the Reading and confessing Assembly.

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