Elder Moore, a Hardshell Baptist, in delineating what "Primitive Baptists" believe, responded to questions. (see here)
8. Do you not then teach that some might want salvation but could not have it because they are not one of the elect?
Answer: No, the man who wants salvation already HAS it.
I have cited others who have said the same thing in my book on "The Hardshell Baptist Cult." Such a proposition makes men like Baalim a child of God, even though the Scriptures clearly affirm that he is one of them who will "perish." (Jude 11)
"Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!" (Num. 23: 10)
Looks like Balaam wanted to be saved, and by the logic of the Hardshells, this was enough to prove that Balaam was a born again child of God! Who can believe it?
