TETH's Refutation of Elder David Bartley's Anti Time Salvation Polemic


In a recent internet discussion with another Primitive Baptist who is very much opposed to the notion of Conditional Time Salvation (CTS), I was pointed to the following anti-CTS polemic by Elder David Bartley from 1905 entitled The Heresy of Conditional Time Salvation. Since this brother seemed to offer this up as a solid proof of the CTS "heresy" (of which TETH is an hearty and enthusiastic promoter) and since I found the article so riddled with unsustainable assertions, I have decided to publish Elder Bartley's article in its entirety  along with my refutation for your consideration. I believe it establishes the doctrine of Conditional Time Salvation as indispensable in avoiding contradictions in our handling of biblical truth.

Temporal Salvation: A Bogus or Biblical Concept by Elder Michael L. Gowens

An excellent biblical defense of Time Salvation by Elder Michael L. Gowens

“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world...” (Galatians 1:4)

Stretch your mental muscles for a moment. Is there a difference between reality and a person’s perception of that reality? If I fail to perceive the reality, does my subjective failure to understand what is real affect whether or not it is real?

True and False Christians by Paul Washer and Tim Conway EXAMINED



I recently stumbled across this video compilation of Paul Washer and Tim Conway entitled True and False Christians. I believe it does a good job of revealing a number of problems lurking in their somewhat acerbic brand of Lordship Salvation Calvinism. Among those problems are:

1. An unscriptural view of regeneration,
2. A shallow, non-systematic approach to statements made in John’s first epistle,
3. A tendency to assert that they are able to discern another person’s state of grace, and
4. An unfortunate misinterpretation of the Lord’s intent in Matthew 7.

Responding to Mitt Romney's Letter to Trump

Mitt Romney (Motus Non-Sequitorum)
TETH (who explicitly detests and disavows Nazism, white nationalism, white supremacy, Antifa, BLM, and a host of other unsavory ideologies antithetical to Christian discipleship) has never strayed into the domain of politics on this blog, but Mitt Romney's letter to Trump was sufficient cause to publish a few thoughts in these distressing times. What follows is the perspective of one lone Primitive Baptist on Romney's facebook post:

ASK TETH Episode 05 - Saved Unbelievers



I’ll pose to you a question that I’ve asked several ministers along the way: Using the Bible, how do you prove that born-again unbelievers exist? 

ASK TETH Episode 04 - The Spirit, the Bride, the Gospel, and Regeneration



The bible says, "And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." (Rev 22:17 KJV) Can you explain why this cannot be characterized as an "offer" of eternal salvation?

ASK TETH Episode 03 - Hearing and Understanding the Gospel



Do you believe it is possible for people to understand the true gospel without ever hearing it?
