The Games Cats and Dogs Play

August 23 2011, 3:03 AM 

OK, we need another display (perhaps, of a cat "barking") to complete the verbal exchange between adult Christians. Dave, can you provide us, in return, a video clip of a "barking" cat? The exchange of video clips may be a good illustration of "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth."

OK, OK. It's only a game, right? I think I've heard of this expression before: "Fighting like cats and dogs." What about something positive, such as: "How to Keep Dogs and Cats from Fighting." You know, there's actually a link to this:

Counting the Dead Saints and Those in Purgatory--the Catholic Advantage

August 25 2011, 2:40 AM 

Maybe ... not.

But here's a question regarding religious censuses and statistics:

Are churches of Christ at a disadvantage when "members" are counted in a religious census?

I am sure that the Roman Catholic Church counts everyone, including sprinkled (baptized) babies as "members"; Protestant denominations do, too. In the church of Christ, only those baptized [at the age of accountability] are members of the church. So, what about family members who are not yet Christians in the church? Are they adherents--and not members?

Re: Counting the Dead Saints and Those in Purgatory--the Catholic Advantage

In some church of Christ congregations, the term "regular attendant" describes someone who attends services but who has not been baptized and hence is neither a member of the congregation in question nor of the Church. When they fill out the attendance cards for each service, congregants check either "Member" or "Regular Attendant." Of course, checking "Member" signifies a dual role: a baptized member of the congregation where one regularly worships AND a member of the Church.

What about the person who has been baptized but later starts visiting another congregation with the idea of placing membership there at some point? If he checks "Member" on the card, it implies that he is a baptized member of the Church (true) AND that he has placed membership with that congregation (false). If he checks "Regular Attendant," it implies that he is neither a member of that congregation (true) nor of the Church (false).

That's why church statistics based on attendance cards may be misleading.

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