      "Contemporary Worship" is so disgustingly gender-Tender that up to half or more of the group flees at the sight and sound of "Worship Teams." They may not know that their very nature sends a cold chill all over you. Others ave noted both the Trinity and Music to the worship of the Mother harlot. In Revelation 18 she uses "lusted after fruits" and the singers, instrument players and all Craftsmen involved it claiming to PERFORM worship or bring God down are called SORCERERS and along with DOGS will be CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

      1. The worship of the Christian Church has not been left to be determined by the mere judgments and imaginations of men. There are principles laid down, there are precepts given, there are examples recorded, which show the mind and will of Christ in this matter; and the statements of Paul, in regard to " will-worship " (Col. 2:18-23), decisively prove that those who violate the purity of Christian worship,

      are not only those who introduce practices which God has forbidden,
      but those who introduce what God has not authorised, or commanded.

      There can be no meaning attached to the term, " will -worship," but that such "worship" rests, not on the "will" of God, but on the mere "will" or fancy of man.

      Now, in opposition to the divine enunciation in regard to "will-worship," the Church of England has admitted into its articles this principle, that it belongs to "the Church," of her own authority, to " decree rites and ceremonies " (Article XX).

      As a matter of historical fact, this principle was never agreed to by the Convocation that adopted the Thirty-nine Articles; this sentence being found neither in the first-printed edition of the Articles, nor in the draft of them that passed the Convocation, and which is still in existence, with the autograph signatures of the members; but is believed to have been surreptitiously inserted by the hand of Queen Elizabeth herself, who had much of the overbearing spirit of her father, Henry VIII., and who, as Head of the Church, which the English Constitution made her,was determined to have a pompous worship in that church, under her ecclesiastical control

      But, however that clause was introduced, once introduced, it has been the grand means of overlaying that church with ceremonies which have no foundation in the Word of God, but are of the very essence of will-worship. Where, for instance, could any warrant be found in the Word of God,

      for men wheeling to the east in the midst of their devotions,
      making the sign of the cross in baptism,
      or kneeling in the Lord's Supper?

      Some of these things have been borrowed from the Papists, some from the Pagans, [2] but, assuredly, none of them from the Scriptures.

      Where, also, in the worship of the Apostolic Church, is there the least hint of the use of instrumental music?In the Old Testament dispensation, such instrumental music was appointed in the service of God; but that was inseparably bound up with the worship of the Temple, which, says Paul, was

      "a worldly sanctuary " (Heb. 9:1),
      which, with its (Gal. 4:9) " beggarly elements " and "rudiments of this world" (Col. 2:20)
      was intended to last only "until the time of reformation" (Heb. 9:10).

      That "time of reformation" came, when the Lord Jesus appeared to abolish the "worldly sanctuary," and set up the more " spiritual" dispensation of the Gospel church.

      The "worldly sanctuary" of Judaism, with its sacrifices, and incense, and instrumental music, had a "glory" for the time that the wisdom of God saw fit that it should last, that is, while the Church was under age (Gal. 4:1-3). But it had "no glory in comparison of the glory that excelleth," when the Church came to its full age,when the "worldly sanctuary" was done away,and when the spiritual sanctuary, or Gospel Church, was filled with the glorious indwelling of the fulness of the Spirit.

      With the abrogation of the "worldly sanctuary,"the instrumental music, which, as much as the offering of sacrifice, was identified with it,and which was not used in the service of the synagogue, was equally abrogated.

      So certain is it that the instrumental music of Judaism was identified with the Temple service, that the Jews themselves have, ever since the destruction of the Temple, till very recently, held it utterly unlawful to introduce such music into their synagogues; and when, about the beginning of the present century, an organ was, for the first time, introduced, nothing but the influential position of the individual concerned in its introduction, saved him from being summarily excommunicated. [3]


      So THAT is why all of the music tribulation based on the claim that Churches of Christ REMOVED instruments because they were ignorant and evil is WHY they just have to BURN, BURN, BURN.

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