  • Theophilus quoting the widespread view that there is ONE GOD
    • Ken Sublett (Login Ken.Sublett)
      Posted Jul 2, 2017 12:10 PM

      The original Sibylline oracles were probably destroyed. Cybele or Sibyl emasculated musical worshipers define the Jewish worship of the Starry Host at Mount Sinai. God abandoned them to Sabazianism as a term for the Sibyls the Bacchae of the Goat-like Bacchus (from Buccus - buck--male goat) joined the Sibyls of Thrace who were known as Sabazius. Sabazius was a Cretan demigod from which the Greeks got the name Zeus. Prior to the Greeks, however, Sabazius appears to have been a title for priestesses, and not the god it was later said to be. These were the first to replace beer with wine and incorporate the Bacchic rituals in their Holy Taverns. Flavius Claudius Julianus, the last Pagan Emperor of Rome, put beer in its proper perspective: "Can this be Dionysus?

      The practices of the false Jews in Jerusalem and the writings of Plutarch affirm that Dionysus or Bacchus was the god of the rulers: they killed their Messiah because they were ignorant of the prophets read each REST day in the synagogue. Dionysus was the old and new "wineskins" god.

      The partly restored or composes oracles expressed the Jewish and Christian view of a singular righteous God as opposed to an evil god demanding flesh and blood.

      Chapter II.-The Gods are Despised When They are Made; But Become Valuable When Bought.

      Theophilus who defined the trinity to refute it follows John whose gospel and letters has Jesus and everyone absolutely refuting pollytheism whose always-pagan triads consisted of father, mother (spirit) and infant son. Theophilus shows that the enlightened people among the Jews and other nations which God did not abandon understood that IDOLATRY is making a literal or verbal Image of god as being like men who rose and then died and were "sacrificed" in order for a new race of gods to arise which met the needs of carnal and the UNEDUCATED people. Adam was DUST or an ABORIGINE which is defined in the literature as people who had never developed or become civilized.

      Theophilus Chapter XXXVI.-Prophecies of the Sibyl.

      And the Sibyl, who was a prophetess among the Greeks and the other nations, in the beginning of her prophecy, reproaches the race of men, saying:-

      "How are ye still so quickly lifted up,
      And how so thoughtless of the end of life,
      Ye mortal men of flesh, who are but nought?

      Do ye not tremble, nor fear God most high?
      Your Overseer, the Knower, Seer of all,
      Who ever keeps those whom His hand first made,
      Puts His sweet Spirit into all His works,
      And gives Him for a guide to mortal men.

      God BREATHED the breath of life meaning inspiration or the ability to understand God into Adam. As the Spiritual "Adam" Jesus gives the obedient A holy spirit to be able to read black text on brown paper (2 Cor.. 3 etc.]

      There is one only uncreated God,
      Who reigns alone, all-powerful very great,

      From whom is nothing hid. He sees all things,
      Himself unseen by any mortal eye.

      Can mortal man see the immortal God,
      Or fleshly eyes, which Shun the noontide beams,
      Look upon Him who dwells beyond the heavens?

      Worship Him then, the self-existent God,
      The unbegotten Ruler of the world,
      Who only was from everlasting time,
      And shall to everlasting still abide.

      Of evil counsels ye shall reap the fruit,
      Because ye have not honoured the true God,
      Nor offered to Him sacred hecatombs.
      To those who dwell in Hades ye make gifts,
      And unto demons offer sacrifice.

      Of the Jews and those who use the Levite Pattern:
      Is. 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

      In madness and in pride ye have your walk;
      And leaving the right way, ye wander wide,
      And lose yourselves in pitfalls and in thorns.
      Why do ye wander thus, O foolish men?
      Cease your vain wanderings in the black, dark night;
      Why follow darkness and perpetual gloom
      When, see, there shines for you the blessed light?

      Lo, He is clear-in Him there is no spot.
      Turn, then, from darkness, and behold the day;
      Be wise, and treasure wisdom in your breasts.

      There is one God who sends the winds and rains,
      The earthquakes, and the lightnings, and the plagues,
      The famines, and the snow-storms, and the ice,
      And all the woes that visit our sad race.

      Nor these alone, but all things else He gives,
      Ruling omnipotent in heaven and earth, And self-existent from eternity."

      And regarding those [gods] that axe said to have been born, she said:- "If all things that are born must also die,

      "God cannot be produced by mortal man.
      But there is only Once, the All-Supreme,
      Who made the heavens, with all their starry host,
      The sun and moon; likewise the fruitful earth,
      With all the waves of ocean, and the hills,
      The fountains, and the ever flowing streams;

      He also made the countless multitude
      Of ocean creatures, and He keeps alive
      All creeping things, both of the earth and sea;

      And all the tuneful choir of birds He made,
      Which cleave the air with wings, and with shrill pipe
      Trill forth at morn their tender, clear-voiced song.

      Within the deep glades of the hills He placed
      A savage race of beasts; and unto men
      He made all cattle subject, making man
      The God-formed image, ruler over all,
      And putting in subjection to his sway
      Things many and incomprehensible.

      For who of mortals can know all these things?
      He only knows who made them at the first,
      He the Creator, incorruptible,
      Who dwells in upper air eternally;

      Who proffers to the good most rich rewards,
      And against evil and unrighteous men
      Rouses revenge, and wrath, and bloody wars,
      And pestilence, and many a tearful grief.

      O man exalted vainly-say why thus
      Hast thou so utterly destroyed thyself?
      Have ye no shame worshipping beasts for gods?

      And to believe the gods should steal your beasts,
      Or that they need your vessels-is it not
      Frenzy's most profitless and foolish thought?

      Instead of dwelling in the golden heavens,
      Ye see your gods become the prey of worms,
      And hosts of creatures noisome and unclean.
      O fools! ye worship serpents, dogs, and cats,
      Birds, and the creeping things of earth and sea,
      Images made with hands, statues of stone,
      And heaps of rubbish by the wayside placed.

      All these, and many more vain things, ye serve,
      Worshipping things disgraceful even to name:
      These are the gods who lead vain men astray,
      From whose mouth streams of deadly poison flow.

      But unto Him in whom alone is life,
      Life, and undying, everlasting light;
      Who pours into man's cup of life a
      Sweeter than sweetest honey to his taste,-

      Unto Him bow the head, to Him alone,
      And walk in ways of everlasting peace.
      Forsaking Him, ye all have turned aside,
      And, in your raving folly, drained the cup
      Of justice quite unmixed, pure, mastering, strong;

      And ye will not again be sober men,
      Ye will not come unto a sober mind,

      And know your God and King, who looks on all:
      Therefore, upon you burning fire shall come,
      And ever ye shall daily burn in flames,

      Ashamed for ever of your useless gods.

      But those who worship the eternal God,
      They shall inherit everlasting life,
      Inhabiting the blooming realms of bliss,
      And feasting on sweet food from starry heaven."

      That these things are true, and useful, and just, and profitable to all men, is obvious. Even the poets have spoken of the punishments of the wicked.

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