Response to Question

Many years ago a lady asked me a question and it took me three days to answer.
The question she asked was "When was instrumental music introduced into the worship?"
Well, when I found the answer I was totally bowled over. A Byzantine Emperor named Constans II
Made a gift of the early pipe organ in 666AD. Well, when I saw this many years ago I at first
Studied to find out more, but I lost heart and kept it to myself, not wanting to offend anyone.

Well,that was in the 80's sometime. I feel away, not to point of missing services or teaching
some strange doctrine, but I fell away from my first love. It has taken me many years to get to point
of addressing My Heavenly Father and knowing that He is listening to me again.

I was raised in the Pentecostal Church with all the trappings, I know what music can do for you,
nothing but separate you from God.

Remember Lev. 10:1-3, they changed the worship and GOD sent them their reward from Heaven in the form
of Fire. We are the censer and our prayers are the alms offered to GOD, do we really want to change it or should we seek to Please our Father or man.

We need to let people know that it is a possibility that caring more for the pagan ritual instrument
than we do pleasing GOD is MARKING US.

As a member of the Lord's Body for 31 years and to have fallen away to the point that I thought that ther was no hpe for me, and being able to come back in such a WAY AS TO BE ABLE TO STAND FOR TRUTH AGAIN, well, brethren, I don't want to go to hell because of my foolish pride, or my not being willing to follow the example that the early church set for us.

I suggest that anyone that wants instruments in their worship take the time to dig through the history books and see for yourself.

I have enough information for a booklet now and I am working on it.

I was looking for a blog that I read last night about the instument when I saw this blog.
What made me start looking for it again was a statement that I read, "It's time to lay the AXE
to the NON-INSTRUMENTAL BRANCH".........what a statement!! I hope this fellow reads my blog.

Ead your BIBLE EVERY DAY. Study to show yourself approved, a workman that rightly divides the WORD OF GOD!!

When Vitalian II introduced it first in 666-670, it caused quite an uproar, and one statement that I read on a Catholic site, New Advent, said "the earlier church was of much too a spirual fibre to
allow instruments into the worship." IF THE BLIND LEADS THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE PIT.

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