    Old Bildad Primitive Baptist Church, Keltonburg, DeKalb County, Tennessee
    Old Bildad Primitive Baptist Church, Keltonburg, DeKalb County, Tennessee
    Isaac Cantrell (1782-1840) was of the "Two-Seed-In-The-Spirit" Baptists...

    The church was constituted in June 1809. It lettered from the Brush Creek Primitive Baptist Church, which is still in existence.

    The church divided in 1854 and the church that became known as Old Bildad changed their original church covenant but the church that became known as New Bildad still holds the church covenant and the Articles of Faith from 1809 and we still practice and worship as they did 200 years ago. The split occured over the dispute regarding the physical resurrection of the saints...Elder Ricky Arnold.

  • Notes 
    • Isaac was of the "Two-Seed-In-Spirit" Baptists...

      Reported in 1920...

      BAPTISTS, Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit, had their origin in the preaching and ultra-Calvinistic doctrines of Daniel Parker, a Baptist elder and preacher of Tennessee. Parker, who was ordained in 1806 in Tennessee became one of the strongest opponents of the organized work of the Church. In 1817 he moved to Illinois, where he continued his opposition to the work and organization of the regular Church for 19 years. Later he went to Texas. In various pamphlets (1826-29) Parker made public some very peculiar theories he held concerning the introduction and perpetuation of evil in the human race. According to these beliefs, God, when He created Adam and Eve, infused into them particles of Himself, thus making them altogether good; the devil corrupted them by infusing into them particles of himelf. Eve, by predestination, brought forth a certain number of good and a certain number of bad offsprings; and all her daughters after her were predestined to do likewise. The atonement, according to Parker, applies only to those born of the good seed, those born of the bad being absolutely lost. This Baptist sect is uncompromisingly opposed to "all human institutions." They are found in 21 States and have nearly 500 churches and nearly 13,000 members.
