A capella

July 3 2010 at 5:19 PM

A capella which is Italian for "In the manner of The Church."

Which Church? The Roman Catholic Church of course.

Is it authorized to continue a practice which is in error?

Ephesians 5:19 says

SPEAKING to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

We know from history that the early church sang with Psalmody for the purpose of learning the scriptures, just as many Jews used to, to learn the Torah.


Those who sing a capella, with harmony etc, are just as guilty as instrumentalists in perpetuating unauthorized worship.

Is it the Italian "a cappella" or the Latin "a capella?

July 6 2010, 11:03 AM 

It is interesting to note if it is ...

... ... ...A Cappella, Acappella, Acapella, A Capella, Acapella or A Capela?

Is it really "in the manner of the Church"?

----------------- or ----------------

Is it "in the style of the chapel"?

What does "singing with music" mean?

In terms of "psalms and hymns and spiritual songs," is "singing" where words are vocalized a form of SPEAKING? And which words?

In context, Col. 3:16 states, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly...." It doesn't stop there. It further states: "teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

The most accurate meaning of "a cappella" in Italian is "in chapel style" (meaning vocal music only), not "in the manner of the church." In Italian, "cappella" means "chapel," not "church." It is known that early chapels did not incorporate IM, as opposed to large Roman Catholic churches, which introduced IM centuries later.

The Mark of the Beast!

July 28 2010, 9:29 PM 

The Musical Worship Team which suddenly appeared and separated congregations of many Bible-based groups CLAIMS to be able to "lead you into the presence of God." They stand in the holy place (of church architecture) which is off limits to the masses. Because Jesus Christ is the only Mediator/Intercessor, they in fact claim to be God standing in the holy place. The Locusts John used as a code word is well docmented as the musical worship team of Apollo (Abaddon, Apollyon). Their task is to SEPARATE people based on their MARK. They may drive them out of their own churches but they are not permitted to harm the godly.

All Epistles Forbid Performance Music

August 20 2010, 12:19 PM 

If you grasp the meaning of EKKLESIA or SYNAGOGUE it will not be possible for you to even hallucinate music as a performance trying to please God or attract students.

If you do not know the meaning of Ekklesia or Synagogue then it is not possible that you are a Christian. Why? Because a Disciple is a student of the Word of Christ defending CENI in the Great Commission.

This web site is not part of or approved by any Church!

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