And I still don't really know what his point is in the statement that Jesus "gave people A holy spirit or A good conscience with the ability to READ or HEAR BLACK text written on BROWN paper".
That's what I just told you!
THE ONE PIECE PATTERN FROM THE CHURCH OF CHRIST [THE ROCK] AND NEVER CHANGED AND WILL NEVER CHANGE UNTIL JESUS RETURNS WAS/IS
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city
them that PREACH
him, being READ
in the synagogues every sabbath day. [REST DAY NOT WORSHIP DAY]
Because the rest or PAUO in Greek outlaws ceremonial legalism and is ONCE A WEEK as a READING ONLY assembly
you may never have seen an ASSSEMBLY OF CHRIST.
The epistles like all letters are NEVER SUNG or TAMPERED with in sermonizing:
Col. 4:16 And when this epistle is READ
among you, cause that it be READ
also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise READ
the epistle from Laodicea.
You have never attended or known of such a PATTERN.
By direct command the WORD is always READ or SAID
Cor. 3:13 And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
2Cor. 3:14 But their minds were blinded
for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the READING
of the old testament;
which vail is done away in Christ.
2Cor. 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is READ
, the vail is upon their heart.
2Cor. 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall TURN
to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.
2Cor. 3:17 Now the Lord IS
that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2Cor. 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
In order to READ the TEXT which I have just posted you must TURN to Jesus: Turn has the same meaning as to be CONVERTED and Converted is the process ONLY available to those who confess that Jesus is the CHRIST the SON of God and are enable to be baptized to WASH ALWAY YOUR SINS which gives YOU a holy spirit or A good conscience, consciousness or a CO-PERCEPTION of the Word.
God is HOLY (wholly or pure] Spirit: He breathed into Jesus Christ without measure, METRON or musical meter and Jesus made the WORD or God's Regulative Principle both visible and audible.
Post-Calvinists who never read Calvin DENY that the death of Jesus, baptism or having A NEW HOLY SPIRIT can possible change God's CHOICE made back in eternity-past.
The new SECTARIANISM called The Progressive church of Christ holds thee same view and are children of Barton W. Stone who never ceased being a Calvinists even denying the role of baptism until forced to by the grey headed ladies in north Alabama in order to get any converts.
