Jason Brown, Hardshell apologist, in one of his responses to me, wrote:
"Primitive Baptists who attempt to argue for the justification of the description "Primitive" on the basis of unchanged doctrinal purity are blind to history. There has certainly been an evolution or devolution (in Garrett's view) of doctrine within the Primitive Baptists in reaction to controversy. No doubt about that from a historical perspective." (See the Saturday, October 29, 2011 posting
"Jason Brown's Latest")
I would like for any Hardshell to come forward and prove Brown wrong. Again, who then is the real old or primitive Baptist? Those, like Kevin and I, who believe like the real old Baptists or those who cannot find exponents of their doctrine prior to the mid 19th century?
