I have recently come across some of Elder Bartley’s other writings, which made me remember this old article I first stumbled across years ago. Just as it was with my previous posting on Elder F.A. Chick, I wish for the interested reader to note the following things revealed by the elder in regards to this teaching:
1) It is of recent origin.
2) It is an attempt to bypass the “means of salvation”.
3) It breaks up eternal salvation into one composed on “fragments and parts”.
4) It has caused strife.
5) It is a “works” system.
6) It is an attempt to explain away what some falsely see as Armininianism.
7) It fails to understand that the timely phase of salvation is PART OF eternal salvation.
