Another New Article of Faith
In the past I have made a few postings about the evolving articles of faith seen in the “Primitive Baptist” churches. Articles of Faith Departure Time Salvation Now An Article of Faith New Articles of Faith With the rise of the conditional time salvation paradigm, any expressions about the certainty of gospel conversion and perseverance are being removed. As part of this evolution, I noticed where the following has been included in one church’s Articles of Faith. “We believe that only a remnant of the innumerable host of God’s elect family will believe and obey the true gospel and persevere in the straight and narrow way that leads to the joys of abundant life in God’s kingdom here on earth. (Matt. 7:13-14; Heb. 6:4-6; II Tim. 4:10)” http://www.irwinvillepbc.com/pbarticlesoffaith.html Sadly, such is the case now that the original views of the Kehukee brethren in 1777 on these matters have been completely abandoned.
