Phil Barnes probably builds on Lynn Anderson at Oak Hills Church

Lynn Anderson was one of the first to gain fame and fortune and decided to mount an attack against churches of Christ. He has been instrumental in a Shepherding Movement which collects simple preachers and teaches them how to disband the male leadership and impose musical: lets' begin with a new style of "racing" singing then performance teams.

Lynn has collected the proof passages from NACC sources and the preachers and elders are not disciples and do not know that they lie about each and every mention of an instrument.

http://www.piney.com/Lynn.Anderson.Oak.Hills.Church.html

As usual, this begins with an gradually rising promise not to do anything bad.

Phil Barnes affirms the elders authority to DECIDE on using or not using instruments. He says that they have wasted too much time allowing Satan who has WEAPONS keeping them from their task. We will show that all evidence points to Satan as the source and promoter of instruments which, then and now, are held to give off sacred sounds because they have the ability to stimulate all of the LADED BURDEN effects Jesus died to remove.

http://www.piney.com/Phil.Barnes.Madison.Church.of.Christ.Instruments.html

http://www.piney.com/Buck.Dozier.Instrumental.Music.Madison.Church.Of.Christ.html

I will look first at Wayne Huddleston "proof passage" as one of several reviews of ALL of their scripture passages. No doubt, Buck Dozier is doing all of the thinking as he has from the first massive sowing of discord by adding the "Worship Teams" assuredly one of the vilest ideas since Jesus said that our WORSHIP is IN the place of our perfected spirit as OPPOSED to houses built by human hands.

I will add the JESUS VISION as time permits.

Re: Buck Dozier Instrumental Music at Madison Church of Christ.

June 29 2012, 9:45 PM 

Wayne Huddleston, one of the WE ALL AFFIRM Buck Dozier's plan quotes

2Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
.....and is profitable
.....for doctrine,
.....for reproof,
.....for correction,
.....for instruction in righteousness:
2Tim. 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect,
.....throughly furnished unto all good works.


In the professional presentation it was Buck Dozer who affirmed their belief that instrumental music was just fine but (for now) instruments would be allowed in the youth group. However, the "Musical Worship Team" is a legalistic end run around the "no machines worshiping God." It is the MARK of the a cappellas or castrated team singing organum or in the style of the pipe organ which was the Pope's legalistic end- run against instruments in the Sistine Chapel where the official mass was held.

Amazingly, almost always when someone just picks a proof text for their discord it is clear that they have never read with understanding the STORY LINE Paul is developing

Paul had considerable trouble with women in performance or preside over (with a tune) because godly women would not flaunt their persona which intends to stimulate lust: in the Wimber, Vineyard movement "to create a sexual-like climatic experience with the spirit" which came just before "giving of substance." GIVE as part of the CAST CIRCLE not from God. Neither is the Show and Go as just "oh, by the way, as you go just speak for Jesus." Nonesense.

2 Tim 3: 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses,
.....and lead captive silly women laden with sins,
.....led away with divers lusts,
2 Tim 3: 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Tim 3: 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses,
.....so do these also resist the truth:
.....men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
2 Tim 3: 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.


I believe their folly is like the musical idolatry at Mount Sinai: they make themselves into a laughing stock before the watching world.

If these are the "magicians" who represented all of the pagan "gods" in combat with Jehovah through Moses, their performance is often outlawed by Christ in the prophets.

incantto , nis, f. id., I. an enchanting, enchantment (post-class.): magicae, Firm. Math. 5, 5: incantationum vires,
mgc , s, f., = magik (sc. tekhn),
ma^gi^kos , II. magical, bibloi Ps.-Phoc.149; m. tekhn


I doubt that there are more than a tiny few who understand that Christ defined the inclusive and exclusive pattern for the synagogue or Church of Christ in the wilderness. He further defined His future REST which explains His church as a school of the Word: he outlaws "seeking your own pleasure" (cf Romans 15) or "speaking your own words. That repudiates the praise singers who make up quite silly and erotic songs seeking to be intimate with Jesus. Nevertheless, such DISCORDED churches are probably the promised WAY OF ESCAPE to any of the members who are disciples or christians.

Re: Phil Barnes Madison affirms Instruments: denounces Satan

July 1 2012, 1:00 PM 

Phil Barnes etal claim that Scripture does not oppose instruments, that not using instruments is just our tradition and that opposing Madison's Musical Move is the works of SATAN.

By rhetoric, singing and playing, Jesus would define them as Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites named in Ezekiel 33. No one can refute the notion that these hypocritic performances DO IN FACT silence the voice of Jesus who is with us to the end of the world: He is still in charge and music from mystery is defined as "making the lamb dumb before the slaughter." or "silencing the voice of the victim." Religious music has always been defined as "sacred violence" and the performers callled "parisites."

From the garden of Eden onward, religious music has been attributed to Satan or Lucifer the singing and harp playing prostitute in the garden of Eden.

It is strange but prophetic that so many people can be taken captive in a "community" or commune so that they believe that the earth is flat. Jesus would call them WISE or Sophists meaning rhetoricians, singers, instrument players and actors. There is always a "mother" goddess figure pulling the strings.

Scriptural Authority

July 1 2012, 4:21 PM 

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light" (1 Pet. 2:9). In this, Christians in general are spoken of as a royal priesthood; and this expression signifies equality among them as to rank.

....while the rulers of the whole world are officers and exercise authority, dominion, over the masses, or, as the Revised Version puts it, "lord it over them," it shall not be this way among his people. There shall be none in the church that have authority over others. The greater ones in the church are not to be officers over others, but to serve for others; not to exercise dominion over them. Hence among Christians, the greater the man, the greater the servant. The whole work of the church is a system of service and not a matter of official authority.

above two paragraphs from E.G. Sewell, 1898, The Gospel Advocate, p. 280.

The idea of equality is as old as the New Testament as repeated by E.G. Sewell. From Sewell and his contemporaries sprang a movement that was to become in the top 10 on the American Christian scene--hardly a fluke of history. The "tradition" was tried and proven "road-worthy" and inspired millions to have a great impact on our nation, as we think about it on this July 4th.

The agenda to set the course of the church in 2012, and capture and effectively mute the pulpit speaker, as a mere mouthpiece for the elders does indeed try to circumvent history but also the road-tested tradition that dates back to the traditional practices of the New Testament.

Too many times today, speakers arise to the position of affirming that "we will do anything that the scriptures do not forbid" all in the name of church growth, only to be backed into a corner, and eventually have to recant only a few weeks later, that singing will be "a capella." Does this mean "always" or just for "now"?

Re: Scriptural Authority

A preacher has one weapon and does not have to sell his soul. If he just preached the Word as it has been taught he would fortify people to look for Biblical authority and would make himself immune from jiffy-quick firing by elders more APT to chase a coon as APT to the the Word as it is laid down to make life safe and easy.

I suspect that lots of preachers have really been converted to the post-modern, post-Biblical view that the Scriptures had no lasting authority and must be amended when culture changes. Isn't tha old Culture always changing?

The New Testament says nothing to the effect that Scripture has no lasting authority, that Scripture is driven by the current culture and should be changed to reflect cultural trends. Only man in his desire to satisfy his culture-driven appetites would want a culture-driven "Christianity" that does not even begin to resemble the Christianity that Christ taught in the first century. Only rogue "Christians" would ignore God's neither-add-to-nor-take-from-Scripture command. Only rogue "Christians" would insist that the commands of Deut. 4:2 and Rev. 22:18-19 apply ONLY to those respective books, implying that man can change the rest of the Bible at will.

Re: Phil Barnes Madison affirms Instruments: denounces Satan

July 1 2012, 4:48 PM 

To say, "Scripture does not oppose instruments" is to ASSUME that God ALWAYS explicitly specifies what He forbids. Since the Scriptures also forbid us to alter God's commands from what He specifies therein, then it is wrong to add instrumental music when God specifies vocal music. The Scriptures need not be redundant and say, "Sing and make melody in your hearts but use no instruments." That God specifies vocal music AND STOPS THERE should be sufficient enough for those who wish to follow God's commands AS WRITTEN in the New Testament.

A Christian is best classified as a rogue if he resorts to the Scripture-does-not-oppose-this-or-that philosophy to justify worship practices that ALTER what the New Testament actually teaches. Such a rogue "Christian" is like a pharmacist who deliberately ignores doctors' prescriptions and ALTERS what is explicitly prescribed. Such a rogue pharmacist could harm or kill patients; he engages in criminal activity that is punishable with fines and/or imprisonment as well as having his license revoked. Society would not tolerate a rogue pharmacist; likewise, the Church should not tolerate rogue "Christians," who engage in spiritually criminal activity. Yet when rogue "Christians" elect to go beyond what the New Testament teaches, it is called a "vision from God" and hailed as "relevant change for the Church."

The power in the church pew

July 1 2012, 7:17 PM 

As the gentleman said for the contribution this morning. The church has enough money to pay for all its benevolent needs. It's in the members' pockets.

This is your power against entrenched interests and power. You have the power of contribution.

You have the power of teaching, and various participation.

You have the power of history, and family lineage.

Jesus said that by believing, all things can be accomplished. "Ask and it will be given you, seek, and you shall find."

You can gather, but will gather less if you are forced to worship a certain way.

You can grow, if you are fed a spiritual diet and not just a series of programs.

You can give, if you are in agreement with the vision, and are treated as a "chosen people", a "royal priesthood."

You can go, if you are included in unity with those who propose to lead the church.

Re: Phil Barnes Madison affirms Instruments: denounces Satan

July 1 2012, 8:00 PM 

There is no Scriptural authority or hint that people gave money into the collection plate on the first day of the week. They laid by HIM or Peter saves up a growing sum BY Peter. When the delegates arrive the money would be brought in with no hint that it was confiscated by the local elders. Paul wanted it all finished before he came because his presence would be an extorting influence. That repudiates the newly CAST VISION to give money so they can Grow. In 2 Corinthians 8-9 Paul denies that it was a command. Churches of Christ have always operated on the free will principle and elders never thought that they had the freedom to take from the poor and give it to some other person's "program."

That means that any stress or special pleading for "musicians" or "minister of audio" or a "mistress of makeup" is proven to be extortion.

The modern elder lays claim to the food money of widows and hard working honest people. Then when the money is in their hands they deny that the giver has any say in how it is to be spent. They can crawl off into a corner and claim the right to DECIDE that "we will remain a cappella" proving their authority to change their minds (?).

There is no recorded history of anyone believing that "lay by him" meant to lay by into the hands of the elder. History notes that -- contrary to proportional giving -- those who had prospered on that first day of the week as the first work day MIGHT if they wish give to the poor but denied any compulsion. Jesus paid the temple tax and said that sons of a king do not pay taxes. He did not command anything like an ACT called YOU give ME your money or you will be in danger. That was the claim of the first division at Madison where they promised you a blessing if you tithed and warned you against something bad if you did not tithe. They have lost connection with the Head and need to turn the property over to some godly leaders.

"If there is a poor man with you, one of your brothers, in any of your towns in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand from your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and shall generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks" (Deut. 15:7, 8-11).

H5670 abat aw-bat' A primitive root; to pawn; causatively to lend (on security); figuratively to entangle: borrow, break [ranks], fetch [a pledge], lend, X surely.


"Concerning budgets--it is now a mark of the identity of a scriptural church to have or not to have certain benevolent programs and missionary projects in the budget; but the time was when churches had no such problems, for there were no budgets. The apportionment of the contributions into a pre-arranged budget is comparatively new, and it met with opposition for the early writers of both the Gospel Advocate and the Firm Foundation, perhaps for the foreseen reason of what is happening now--an an issue develops on what may or may not be scripturally included in the budget, and the budget becomes a sacramental thing, the depository for the 'Lord's Money.'" (Foy E. Wallace, Jr., The Gospel for Today, p 552)

Alfred Edershiem notes of one of the tithes:
Thus 'no man might go on the Temple Mount with his staff,' as if on business or pleasure;
nor yet 'with shoes on his feet'--sandals only being allowed;
nor 'with the dust upon his feet';
nor 'with his scrip,' nor 'with money tied to him in his purse.'

Whatever he might wish to contribute either to the Temple, or for offerings, or for the poor must be carried by each 'in his hand,' possibly to indicate that the money about him was exclusively for an immediate sacred purpose.

It was probably for similar reasons that Jesus transferred these very ordinances to the disciples when engaged in the service of the real Temple. The direction, 'Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves,' must mean, Go out in the same spirit and manner as you would to the Temple services, and fear not--'for the workman is worthy of his meat' (Matthew 10:9,10). In other words: Let this new Temple service be your only thought, undertaking and care.

Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by HIM in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. 1 Corinthians 16:2

For of a truth it has been said on these matters, let thy almsgiving abide in thy hands until thou knowest to whom thou hast given. Didache 1:6

Re: Congratulations to Ken

July 1 2012, 10:19 PM 

I am a spotty collector from clay tablets to the latest false teachers. My collection is pretty well focused on religions down through history which I think the Bible often points to.

I have lots of church fathers none of which (contrary to the claims) approved of musical instruments even "out of church" for the most part. And most who address the issue are scholars and denounce the pagan worship from the beginning of recorded history. Here is a very neglected classical index

http://www.piney.com/ClassicalIndex.html

Anyone who pretends to be a teacher with authority who has not spent lots of time with these documents simply cannot understand the Bible. Men like Paul and even lesser scholars would probably have gotten lots of classical education by attending the theaters.

God understood that and demanded that we speak that which is written for our learning: we are all always learning but when an elder or preacher steps out of that bracket they are dangerous to themselves and those who trust them.

An Elder at Madison is key lecturer discussing "contemporary issues." I can't express the horrors of men who do not love the Word and therefore are delusional and perform lying wonders. We all wish we could have lived when things of "Biblical proportion" took place: I think we are getting our wish and every individual will have to decide what they will do with Jesus. It's an ugly band of men who are stalking the church.

Salvation Issue

Re: Salvation Issue

July 13 2012, 3:21 PM 

First, you would suggest that anyone who could make such a statement puts themselves above God, almost universal history and gives themselves authority to deliberately sow discord: that is a terminal salvation issue. Music is derived from mystery which meant "to make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." The Jews were prophesied to do and did MOCK Jesus up to the foot of the old rugged cross: and He opened not His mouth when under attack. Religious music was and is identified the mark of the effeminate and called "Sacred Violence."

God said in Amos that He HATES the women-driven (always) wine, women and music INSIDE of the Samaritan Temple. He said that their songs in their temple would be turned into howling. He warned about the "baskets of summer fruits" which identified the male-dominated-by-female perverted rituals. This was the SIGN according to God that:

Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass [deliver] by them any more.

Amos 8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.


That means that God will not pass through that land for ever more. In Revelation 18 the singers and players were called sorcerers and that marked God removing the LAMPS or seven spirits of Divine knowledge (Isaiah 11). There were many symptoms but using Davids warfare and soothsaying instruments to PREVENT the godly people from coming near or into any holy thing or place, were used as part of their Musical Worship Team impelled by the COWS OF BASHAN.

Amos 5:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:
Amos 5:5 But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beer-sheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.
Amos 5:6 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.


When Israel rose up in PLAY this was the musical idolatry of the Egyptian trinity: Osiris, Isis and Horus under the symbol of the real bull calves worshipped in Egypt and still to be seen imbalmed. This was PROFANING the REST day which outlawed such activities which was the mark and cause of homosexual worship (Romans1). This WAS a salvation issue because it OUTED the spiritual nature of people sentenced to captivity and death: God gave them kings (senior pastors) in His anger to carry out this sentence. The demise of elders and deacons with men so intimidating that they can take a whole church captivity might be God's ABANDONMENT: In Isaiah 30 Revelation 18 that was the exact meaning. THE SOUNDS in Isaiah and Revelation were called sorcery and the people were to be "cast alive into the lake of fire."

God said that He HATES those who sow discord: that is a sin beyond redemption especially for those who ALLOW for driving away up to half of the owner. David invented the use of so-called musical instruments to be used to threaten the enemy in war and to threaten the godly people during the not-commanded animal slaughter and burning: The Spirit OF Christ says that God did not command sacrifices or burnt offerings: they were imposed when God turned them over to worship the starry host: clue in Acts 7.

The Church in the wilderness EXCLUDED any loud vocal or instrumental rejoicing including elevated forms of rhetoric: that is because the Qahal, Synagogue or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness. No one until the "synagogues of Satan" and the Jews in Germany in 1815 ever violated that direct command.

Based on the compulsion to lie about all of the "instrument" proof texts and all recorded history, the evidence would suggest that the outbreak of boylings doing praise songs (assisting God) was proof of the strong delusions identified by lying wonders.

Re: Salvation Issue

July 13 2012, 5:49 PM 

There are several falls from grace facilitated by what Christ called Lucifer as "the singing and harp playing prostitute." He-she-it was in the garden of Eden as the serpent: the nachash is a musical enchanter(ess) which word is connected to "brass" or "bell metal." The discovery of how to make brace and its musical sounds was especially powerful upon superstitious people then and now. God manipulators always fooled the masses by claiming that the lifeless instruments WERE the image of a god or the HOUSE of a god. Africans baptized their musical instruments and stored them in sacred spaces (as in Jerusalem). The Catholics baptized bells and later pipe organs.

The musical fall from grace was probably induced by women such as Miriam (a prophesier or soothsayer) and the Levite Jacob had cursed and warned against (Genesis 49): don't attend their assemblies: don't enter into a covenant with them. Because the Levites volunteered to execute 3000 of the "brethren" God's ONLY command was that they "stand in ranks" outside of the Tabernacle and later temple to make a sound to WARN people that if they came near (because of the fall) they too would be executed.

This story is told over and over but apparently not in any of the schools of Theology (aka Phrenology) for which they rob you blind. The penalty is stated over and over and I have collected a few: If they hallucinate that being ABANDONED to worship the starry host (instead of their creator) and sentenced to captivity and death is NOT A Salvation Issue then we all know that they are ordained to "make the lambs dumb before the slaughter." It certainly works if you ask me.

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; 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)
