Ken Sublett: "Jesus Identified the Scribes and Pharisees as Hypocrites"

Jesus identified the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites. He quotes from Isaiah but the same message about mouth religion is in Ezekiel 33.

There, Christ the Spirit, named entertaining speakers, singers and instrument players.

Hypocrite in the Greek literature points first to rhetoricians and including CANTUS or the musical performers.

A Pharisee is also one who added their own opinions and taught them as doctrine. From Isaiah 55 they knew about the free water of the Word but missed Isaiah 58 which outlaws seeking our own pleasure or speaking out own words. The Pharisees knew that they could not eat up the widows homes unless they fabricated some good songs and sermons (no singing in the synagogue)

You will remember that at the Jerusalem Council, the fact that both Jew and Gentile was prepared for the kingdom is that they had attended synagogue where the Word of God was PREACHED by being READ. The overseer made sure that the reader did not add anyy opines.

When scriptures were READ they were also explained. See Nehemiah 8:8.

The Greek word hypocrites in Mark 7:6

From G5271; an actor under an assumed character (stage player), that is, (figuratively) a dissembler (hypocrite): hypocrite.

So Jesus was accusing them of being actors pretenders. They pretended to be diligently obedient but yet they made rules that nullified Gods law.

There is nothing in the context of Mark 7 about singing or instruments. So if you apply the passage to instrumental music, you would be doing the very thing you condemn. Pretty much the same thing the Pharisees were doing.

Remembering that the Spirit OF Christ spoke through the Prophets and never through the Scribes and Pharisees. Christ also warned about the Lying Pen of The Scribes who kept a record of a NOT-commanded kingdom which God had abandoned to worship the Starry Host BECAUSE of musical idolatry. Poets and song writers were not permitted to write true history and wrote only "what might have been if WE had been in charge." That is what LU is promoting as using your imagination where God has been silent.

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