<font size="3" face="times">ConcernedMembers has received the following request and message from Nashvilleto which CM is responding accordingly:
[color=#000000" size="3" face="times]Thanks for helping to get the warning about the Artios/Calvinists school in Nashville via the ConcernedMembers website. But is there some way for it to get its own web page so it will be more accessible to parents who need to be better informed? As it is now, you can get to it only through the Engedi Ministries Exposed! page. Can it be fixed so that it will automatically come up if someone simply types Artios Academy on Google, Yahoo, or a similar search engine? [Please note a couple of corrections] for clarity.[/color]
CM Responds: Heres the direct link to the Engedi Ministries Exposed! page; or by typing engedi ministries exposed on Google, the reader will be directed to this top link:
Source: Engedi Ministries Exposed!
Heres the direct link to the Artios Academy False Teachings Reviewed page; or by typing artios academy false teachings reviewed on Google, the reader will be directed to this top link:

[CM notes the following should state: (a) Danny Hale, CEO teacher for Engedi and Artios supporter; (b) We might note that Jesus quoted Isaiah and Ezekiel to identify performance speakers, singers and instrument players as hypocrites!]
[Re: Tim Alexander and Calvinism]
[color=#000000" size="3" face="times]Also, could you please publish some type of rebuttal on [this] MORE CHURCHES/Smith Springs thread to Brother (?) Alexanders article from back in September?[/color]
CM: The article in reference was published in The Tennessean (Tuesday, September 25, 2007)Society must decide to hold all life as precious and to be protected. The entire article in Tennessean.com may be obtained from the Voices & Views: Tennessee Voices and a search on: society must decide tim Alexander
[color=#000000" size="3" face="times]In the article, Im quoting:
- Ministers once used biblical texts to teach that natural inequality was divinely distributed.
[Now, isnt that one of the basic tenets of Calvinism: God chose some, but not others? Isnt he criticizing the very thing he now advocates?]
- We are not clean slates from screaming babes to philandering old men we are self-centered.
[Isnt that just a reworded form of Total Depravity, of the 5 points of TULIP + original sin?]
- Society must hold the value that life is ultimately precious.
[Not so in Gods eyes, at least not for those hes ultimately condemned to Hell!]
- [Whats missing? Is he ashamed to admit his affiliation with the Churches of Christ? I bet he isnt when he goes to get his church check cashed at the end of each month.]
