Slater-Marietta Church of Christ

A member of Slater-Marietta Church of Christ has requested input in her view that the Holy Spirit does not speak through the local people in S.C. She sent me a book by their preacher which may be the only one you will find which simply lists the "spirit" passages in Biblical order and presents a brief study on each use of the words for "spirit." This is one of the few people I have encountered who does not list passages out of context to fit an agenda.

I would invite anyone from that area of Slater-Marietta or Greenvile county to discuss their views on this forum or with the preacher who has done the hard work for us.

You may order this book for $12,00 each, postage paid, and $10.00 each for ten or more books.

The first lesson begins by answering the question, "what is a spirit?" It will then examine each verse in the Bible. When your class has read through the whole Bible about God's Spirit you will be able to resist those who take you captive by claiming that they speak under the direct guidance of a holy spirit.

By defining the word SPIRIT the context can better be understood. Walter lists such definitions which I like to make into a list.

H7307 rûach roo'-akh From H7306 ;
wind;
by resemblance breath, that is, a sensible (or even violent) exhalation;
figuratively life, anger, unsubstantiality;
by extension a region of the sky;
by resemblance spirit,
but only of a rational being (including its expression and functions):
air, anger, blast, breath, X cool, courage, mind, X quarter, X side,
spirit ([-ual]), tempest, X vain, ([whirl-]) wind (-y).

You will see that Ruach never speaks of a person: God is holy spirit or WHOLLY spirit in nature.

H7306 rûach roo'-akh A primitive root;
properly to blow, that is, breathe; only (literally) to smell
or (by implication perceive
(figuratively to anticipate, enjoy):accept, smell, X touch,
make of quick understanding.

In the Greek:

G4151 pneuma pnyoo'-mah From G4154 ;
a current of air, that is, breath (blast) or a breeze;
by analogy or figuratively a spirit, that is, (human)
the rational soul, (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc.,
or (superhuman) an angel, daemon, or (divine) God, Christs spirit,
the Holy spirit:ghost, life, spirit (-ual, -ually), mind. Compare G5590 .

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