The years following the schism in 1892 from the Open Brethren,
which became known as ‘the Separation’, brought to the fore new
teachings from the Churches of God (or as they are more commonly
known, the Needed Truth).2 Certain areas of doctrine which were
before held by their teachers in a much broader context were now
narrowed down to apply only to themselves. Articles written prior to
the schism of 1892 in Needed Truth, which had originated as an
Open Brethren magazine, indicate that some doctrines had become
quite incompatible with the eventual formalized position after 1892.3
The new lines of teaching diminished the original areas of
commonality between Churches of God and Open Brethren. The
adherents of the new party were made to think of themselves as
particular and distinctive from that from which they had separated.

It would be interesting to put up the various caustic comments of WK from the Bible Treasury upon the Needed Truth movement, and perhaps even MS material of his on the issue --if you have anything relevant.
