      I am always surprised that any time a song or PSALM is mentioned it is SPOKEN. Remember?

      Eph. 5:19 SPEAKING to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
      BUT as Paul continues his antithetical parallelism:
      singing and making melody IN YOUR HEART to the Lord;

      WHAT WE SPEAK IS THE IN THE ROMANS 15 PARALLEL "Using one mind and ONE MOUTH to speak THAT WHICH IS WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING" or "Scripture for our Comfort." Jesus acts as "another Comforter" or PARAKLETE through His Words which are SPIRIT and LIFE.

      Otherwise, musical idolaters call Paul IGNORANT because:

      [linked image]

      Paul is speaking to two churches just out of paganism noted for music which "made the lambs dumb before the slaughter."

      If this is not true the we look in vain for any of the gatherings held by Paul and others where there is ANY congregational singing as a PRACTICE. Nor is there congregational even of the rewritten Psalms until after Calvin. This is not a problem unless someone has stolen your property claiming that God COMMANDED vocal and/or instrumental "music."

      FACT: Paul commanded SPEAKING or READING for anything called Scripture.
      He used the Psallo and Ode word and put them IN the mind or silent.
      He never COMMANDED singing during the Assembly and he never PRACTICED or engaged in any kind of Assembly music.

      Paul limits his speaking to Scripture. However, many pretenders claimed that they had a divine message which the pagans delivered in a metrical but not musical form.

      CONTRARY TO PAUL they could SPEAK in the Koine Greek understood by most OR they could be silent OR they could have an interpreter.

      1Cor. 14:26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a PSALM, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
      1Cor. 14:27 If any man SPEAK in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
      1Cor. 14:28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him SPEAK to himself, and to God.

      Isn't Paul defined as IGNORANT for never saying or engaging in SINGING when the Church CAME TOGETHER? And no one until the church had almost completely fell into all of the available Apostasy.

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