Addressed to LU Bible Students

I have reviewed some of the class material by John Mark Hicks. I might prove helpful that I have added the actual text to make the evaluation more Biblical. You may have to fake it if you want a passing grade.

John Mark Hicks: Rules replaced by Spiritism?

My post attributing the neo-trinitarianism or tritheism at Lipscomb to H. Leo Boles needs ammending to include Harding's earlier push to make the bodily indwelling of a separate Spirit person the credo of churches of Christ in the S.E.

The Grace - Spirit Harding patternism

John Mark favorably reviews the Nashville as opposed to the Texas patternism which includes premillenialism still rampant along with other false teachings.

Holy Spirit Presence of the Coming Age.

This will confirm Jesus who said that "doctors of the law take away the key to knowledge." John Mark follows the theological patternism of looking up references in a topical index and then fabricating a theology to match. Almost universally you will discover that the Bible contradicts them and makes their teaching answer to John's definition of anti-christ.

Flee from simple Polytheism

August 28 2010, 9:32 PM 

Down through history theologians have believed that they could read a statement out of context and it BECAME inspired even if the context teaches otherwise. It is clear that doctors of the law--Jesus said they take away the key to knowledge--obviously do not read the context or compare with similar passages. That means that one can get an advanced degree simply by quoting others likely to give them a degree while neither one needs to read the Bible or faithfully quote historical scholars.

2Cor. 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
2Cor. 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face,
......that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
......for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away the reading of the old testament;
......which vail is done away in Christ.

Christ promised for the Church in the Wilderness, it was practiced throughout the Old Testament, Jesus endorsed it and the Apostles affirmed the purpose driven church which enabled the Gentiles to be ready for Christ.

......Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time
............hath in every city them that preach him,
............being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

2Cor. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Cor. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall
......turn to the Lord, (equated to baptism)
......the vail shall be taken away.
......(when God gives us A holy spirit or A good conscience which means A co-perception of the Word)

2Cor. 3:17 Now the Lord IS that Spirit:
......and where the Spirit OF the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Cor. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
......are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
......even as by the Spirit OF the Lord.

Now, the subject is being able to READ or UNDERSTAND the Word of God in the church.
We become more like Christ when we READ the spirit OF The Lord. No one insulted a pagan god by rewriting the teachings attributed to that god.

The Spirit of Christ speaking through the WRITINGS of the PROPHETS commanded it to be preached by READING. In addition, Jesus came to make those prophecies more perfect: Those constitute the PREACHING material to be READ with the result that we imbibe the Spirit (mental disposition) of Jesus Christ.

After Paul outlawed private interpretation or further expounding as a mark of a false teacher, he defined the curriculum for the church as ekklesia which, like the synagogue, did not permit you to write your own material to be taught and discussed.

2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
......whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, (the only NT worship concept) unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
......until the day dawn,
......and the day star arise in your hearts

......John 12:46 I am come a light into the world,
............that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness

That is ABSOLUTE because Jesus said:

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth;
......the flesh profiteth nothing:
......the words that I speak unto you,
......they are spirit, and they are life

I will answer any question confidentially or you can post here without disclosing your name.

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