K. C. Moser Lectures at Lipscomb John Mark Hicks
A Theological Shift: What Changed K.C. Moser? and John Mark Hicks. We suggest that proof texts out of context and failure to define words in the original documents led Moser to simply pick up the popular teachings which also seduced G. E. Jones by Jo Bass.
Theology is a word used only of Greek Pagan "gods" such as Apollo, Abaddon or Apollon.

Many of the Baby Boomer peachers had draft dodgers or ANTI-carnal warfare dads maybe the first ANTI ism. They got religion in my home in 'anti-land" and decided that if they ran off to Bible Colleges EMERGED as Babble Colleges of COHORTS anti anything the historic Church of Christ has taught. Then as now and warned about by Erasmus they really believe that they have NEW INSIGHTS by Spiritual Formation or muttering at Ignatian retreats. The verses quoted by K. C. Moser repudiate all of the Bible and common sense. It is common for Faith-Only people to compare obeying the direct commands of Jesus with keeping the Law of Moses.
Campbell Walker: circumcision had the promise of Canaan's land, and a numerous family, as its peculiar blessings. When Mr. Walker shall have shewn how these things can differ in so many respects, and yet be the same Seals of the same covenant, or the latter a substitute for the former, I will then propose other differences between Baptism and circumcision — until then, these will suffice.
With regard to what he has asserted, concerning the covenants being: the same, I am authorised from the Old Testament and New, to affirm that they are not ; often have I seen Pedo-baptist writers assume this as a fundamental axiom of all their reasoning; as if it had been granted by the Baptists. Peter Edwards is distinguished amongst sophists, for such assertions ; I am sorry that my opponent seems to follow him too closely. On what grounds does my opponent affirm that these covenants are the same, that is, what he calls the covenant of grace, or I, the new covenant, and the covenant of circumcision. Do we not read that there were different covenants made with Abraham ? One called by Stephen, the proto-martyr, the covenant
Memoirs Vil.I.V: "What a debtor am I to the grace of God! and what a debtor are you, my dear Jane, and you, my dear little ones, for whom I am ardently praying to that gracious God that hears and helps and saves all that call upon him in truth! for these kindnesses conferred upon me are also for your sakes, that, through his mercy, we may yet praise him together in the congregation of his people
I.VI. I have been enabled to cast all my care upon the Lord, so that I feel neither anxious nor afraid of anything upon earth. I perceive myself in the arms of Almighty Goodness, and am greatly comforted. I hope the receipt of this will find you all in like happy circumstances. If you knew the solid and adequate satisfaction that the clear apprehension of the great gospel of the grace of God is calculated to afford, and does actually afford to all that truly know and embrace it, you would earnestly covet this happiness and spare no pains to acquire it
Jesus spoke to the clergy in parables: He said that truth had been hidden from the WORLD (ecumenical) from the foundation of the World. God hides from the Wise says Jesus: they are sophists: speakers, singers or instrument players ENHANCING the Word of God: these are the only legalists.
For instance, the Graces and Muses were blue-eyed blond prostitute religious musicians. They were known as dirty shepherds and led by Apollyon as the SPIRIT who led the musicians or locusts if you read the literature.
Apollo-or Apollon as the Leader of the Muses. Real Men never went ther!
Jesus was the PERSONIFIED Grace of God with a PLAN which MUST BE OBEYED
Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that,
denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present WORLD;
Being saved is being SAFE and protected in the church defined as an UMBRELLA. Neither Grace nor Faith is said to make us FREE FROM SIN.
Moser and Hicks don't bother to read the SAFE FROM WHAT? There is a difference between being in a SAFE PLACE and having our sins remitted so that God gives us A holy spirit AFTER baptism or A good conscience because BAPTISM NOW SAVES US
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace, in his kindness toward us, through Christ Jesus. Eph 2:7
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: Eph 2:8
II.with a sense of motion to a place, to bring one safe to,
come safe, escape to a place,
The work of Jesus is the PROTOS way to be saved and resurrected and BAPTISM is the ANTI-TOPOS or baptism INSTEAD of dying for our own sins.
THE PLAN AS THE ONLY WAY TO CONFESS THE MAN
Rom. 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey,
his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
whether of sin unto death,
or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom. 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin,
but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Rom. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
SAVED FROM WHAT? Ephesians has a first verseEph 2:2 Wherein in time past YE walked [not unconsious]
Eph 2:1 AND you hath he quickened [Baptism], who were dead in trespasses and sins; [not unconsious]

"The 'sounding gong and tinkling cymbal' used in such worship are mentioned in a derogatory sense in 1 Corinthians 13:1; but the religious outcry itself is dealt with more directly. It is essential that we understand that much of the shouting involved in the rite was the specific function of women. Euripides describes the advent of Dionysiac religion to Thebes thus: 'This city, first in Hellas, now shrills and echoes to my women's cries, their ecstasy of joy'
K. C. Moser was writing at a time when the NACC beginning to sect out of the Disciples in 1927 were actively blaming Churches of Christ for being sectarian and legalists for not BEGINNING to do what was condemed by Christ for the synagogue of the church.
Jesus said that doctors of the Law take away the key to knowledge and called the Scribes (lying say the prophets) and Pharisees as hypocrites. In Ezekiel 33 Christ names preachers for hire not teaching the Word, singers and instrument players. That was His mark of neither preacher not paying audience intending to obey the Word.
The ekklesia or "church" consists of all who have been "washed with water into the Word or school of Christ" and their spirits are translated into a heavenly KINGDOM where the burden laders cannot lade burdens (sermons, songs, a tax). The citizens of the invisible kingdom are FREE until the Command and Example to assemble ONCE A WEEK which is called SYNAGOGUE. That REST from the Civil-Military-Clergy is time to READ or HEAR the Word and rehearse it so that you take it with you when you go home. That is the meaning of the only command to READ the Word and not preach the letters or sing them.
As usual while refuting Scripture and historical trinitarianism we must begin with I WAS ONCE JUST AS IGNORANT AS YOU BUT I HAVE RECEIVED THE LIGHT.
"I once stood where Brother Colley stands on the question of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. I was brought up at the feet of teachers who denied the indwelling of the Spirit and for no better reason I denied it too. After I began to study for myself, I soon discovered that no doctrine is more plain taught than the doctrine of the indwelling of the Spirit."
Jesus said "My WORDS are SPIRIT and they are LIFE." Jesus said that Father and Son abide IN the believer to the extent that they KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.
John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy TRUTH: thy WORD is truth.
Titus 1:3 But hath in due times manifested his WORD through preaching,
which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
Heb. 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD of God,
so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
2Pet. 2:3 And through covetousness shall they
with feigned words make merchandise of you:
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not.
He never discovered that the SPIRIT of God is the MIND of God made visible and audible in a SINGULAR "image of God." Spirit has only one literal meaning which is WIND. It is used in a figurative sense as the BREATH of God.
John 11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that,The Spirit or Breath is never seen as a person required for the ONE GOD THE FATHER to speak to Jesus of Nazareth WHOM GOD MADE TO BE both Lord and Christ.
.....if thou wouldest believe,
.....thou shouldest see the glory of God?
John 17:3 And this is life eternal,
.....that they might know thee the ONLY TRUE GOD
.....AND Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
God the Father breaths (spirit) and Jesus the SON articulates and speaks the WORD: the Word is the LOGOS or Regulative principle.
1Tim. 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight
.....of God our Saviour;
1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved,
.....and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
.....and one mediator between God and men,
.....the MAN Christ Jesus;
Just as Jesus promised that the another Comforter will be recognized WHEN I WILL COME TO YOU. John said that the NAME of the new Comforter will be Jesus Christ the Righteous.
Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
and having received of the Father
the promise of the Holy Ghost,
he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself,
The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
that God hath made
that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
both Lord and Christ.
1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
whether in heaven or in earth,
(as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us
there is but ONE GOD [Theos[, the Father, OF whom are all things, and we in him;
and ONE LORD [Kurios] Jesus Christ, BY whom are all things, and we by him
TO DENY THAT THERE IS ONE GOD THE FATHER AND HE MADE JESUS OF NAZARETH TO BE BOTH LORD AND CHRIST AND BREATHED (SPIRIT) SO THAT JESUS SPOKE WHAT THE FATHER THOUGHT AND BREATHED.
Historic trinitarians and the early creeds denied that the godhead (divine nature) consisted of three Divine Beings called the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All pagan triads consisted of a father, mother (spirit, dove) and little helpless son. The NEW textament is the ANTITHESIS so that in reading we hear Jesus say that all of the authority of the father, son and spirit are vested in ME: the name is SINGULAR.
SPIRIT in Hebrew. Holy just means WHOLLY with no flesh, bones, or blood.
SPIRIT in Greek. Spirit can never define a PERSON but only the Mental Disposition or MIND OF That person

The Spirit OF Christ BREATHED or INSpirited the Prophets.
The Prophets radically repudiated the Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers and Parasites (PARASITE defines religious instrument noise makers such as Miriam and the Levites. And those who do NOT speak that which HAS been taught.
Christ in the prophets warned about the mercinary prophets who stole words from workshops and told lies.
God made Jesus TO BE both Lord and Christ so that He said My WORDS are SPIRIT. He made the prophecies more certain and the inspired writers left us a memory or THEIR PART.
Peter said this eye-- and ear-- witnessed record is NOT subject to private interpretation or further expounding.
Peter said that the MARK of a false teacher is one who does not speak that which is written for our LEARNING.
K. C. MOSER MUST HAVE BELIEVED THAT WHEN HE MADE THE HISTORICAL AND APOSTATE SHIFT HE WAS GUIDED BEYOND THE SACRED PAGES.

Cicero 17. And, indeed, we have constantly heard from men of the greatest eminence and learning, that the study of other sciences was made up of learning, and rules, and regular method; but that a poet was such by the unassisted work of nature, and was moved by the vigour of his own mind, and was inspired, as it were, by some divine wrath. Wherefore rightly does our own great Ennius call poets holy; because they seem to be recommended to us by some especial gift, as it were, and liberality of the godsTHE BREATH CAUSED CORNELIUS TO SPEAK: THAT DOES NOT SAVE ANYONE.

 the poor slave must inevitably have his share in the disaster; for fortune does not allow him to dispose of his own body, it belongs to his master who has bought it. Alas! 'tis the way of the world. But the god, Apollo,in tragic style whose oracles the Pythian priestess on her golden tripod makes known to us,  deserves my censure, for surely he is a physician and a cunning diviner; and yet my master is leaving his temple infected with mere madness and insists on following a blind man.

The Man or the Plan dogma is preacher turf wars and can have no effect on a Christian who is a Disciple who is a Student to goes to Bible classes which beginning in the wilderness was to PREACH the word by READING the Word for comfort and doctors of the Law. Preachers who do not understand prepositions will fail to understand that the Spirit OF Christ is not another little people able to fit inside of a superior humanoid. We laity would think preaching Just Einstein without teaching any of his PLANS would border on strong delusions which Paul promised to people who tamper with the Word as taught.
The "Man or the Plan" controversy was acute in 1962. Apparently, it was the talk of the Lectureships. Indicative of its significance is Lemmons' devoting the July 3, 1962, issue of the Firm Foundation to a discussion of the subject.(4) During this intense period of publishing on the topic, only one person wrote in the Firm Foundation seriously questioning Lemmons' editorial. Waymon Miller stated,
"In our effervescent zeal to convince all of the true terms of pardon,
we have perhaps erred in selling a plan rather than a Person."(5)
WE SUGGEST THAT MAYBE HE DIDN'T KNOW THE MEANING OF EKKLESIA (free citizens) and SYNAGOGUE (school of the Word, Logos or Regulative principle. It is opposite to Rhetoric, singing, playing instruments, acting, dancing or passing the collection plate. Jesus' plan for any one wanting to be a preacher, kerusso or herald not permitted to change the message was to GO into all the world and preach the gospel of the KINGDOM and not just a MAN.
Matt. 4:23 And Jesus WENT about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues,
and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Matt. 9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues,
and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness
and every disease among the people.
Matt. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come.
Mark 1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand:
repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Of course, on our bad days we call that lying. Milller etal assumes that only the "preachers" could read the Bible and the PLAN has always had to be emphasized because of people who call the Spirit's message about bapism a lie. From the Walker-Campbell debate onward most people heard about baptism in sermons refuting the Baptists across the street. (been there--done that). Therefore, it is probably deceit for one preacher to pick on other preachers and declare what is ofthen a lie.
CONTRARY TO ALL OF THE LIES ABOUT SECTARIAN LEGALISM
The Disciples of Christ was being denounced and the NACC was organized in 1927. The Christian Churches did not cease to be counted by the Disciples until 1971. Earlier Leroy Garrett and the erstwhile Somerites began to be "campus ministers' and later the Stone-Campbell Ministry lie was founded and the NACC has been actiive in using a few dupes to TRANSISTION other people's property into the INSTRUMENTAL SECT.
