      Hymnal: "Glorify Thy Name"

      Verse 1. Father, we love You, we worship and adore You, . . . .
      Verse 2. Jesus, we love You, we worship and adore You, . . . .
      Verse 3. Spirit, we love You, we worship and adore You, . . . .
      Chorus Verses 1, 2, and 3: Glorify Thy Name in all the earth. Glorify Thy name, glorify Thy name, Glorify Thy name in all the earth.

      This is not the only song found in hymnals we find questionable. However the hymnal selections contain only a few such hymns, when contrasted with the hymns written since about 1960.

      Here are some concerns:

      1. The love here seems oddly similar to erotic love. . .
      2. One doesn't need to state flatly that we "worship" God in order to do just that. Nuance is something the facebook generation seems unable to fathom.
      3. Spirit is taken to be a person, and many in the pews do not consider the Spirit to be a person. Many consider the Spirit to be a power emanating from God. Others believe that the Spirit is the abiding Word of God as he or she accepts the teaching of Christ.
      4. Glorify thy name occurs 3 times in the three chorus verses, which oddly is Trinity X Trinity, or 3 X 3, which is 9. The number 9 can imply being aristocratic, romantic, proud, egocentric, arrogant, fickle, cold, and mentally unstable.
      5. There is no subtlety in the song. It's in your face. It's a little wooden or stiff, in that it is something that a person who likes geometric symmetry.
      6. Repetition gets on many nerves--both in how FSHS are addressed exactly the same, how the desire is the same to all three.
      7. Asking God to glorify His name, seems a little odd, since one would think that worshipers should be glorifying His name.
      8. Base begins low in the Chorus, and heightens gradually toward the end. The song goes from masculine to feminine in the chorus. Perhaps there is a subliminal message here.
      9. The hymn is an affront to those who do not like creeds.
      10. Now, what other ways can we glorify God rather than just in Word. In fact, this appears to be AN INFESTATION OF THE WORD OF FAITH DOCTRINE, WHICH SAYS THAT WE CAN SPEAK SOMETHING INTO EXISTENCE. That is, just by saying something we can make it happen. This is Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, and Benny Hinn. By singing "Glorify Thy Name" we speak that into existence. Mankind doesn't have to glorify God, we just need to express to God that He glorify his own name.
      11. The "seed money" people are all over the religious sites, asking for donations, with the idea that this amount of money will make the people who send it RICH. In fact, those who receive the SEED MONEY are the ones rich.
      12. Watch for ample SCAMS in the some of the modern songs.

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