"All these issues could have been brought up at an earlier time."
As if they had come from an earlier, better time.
Certainly this was the case with church music from very early times.
This was especially true in earlier times, when people made more time available.

For that was done at a much earlier time than our coming.
In fact one of them set up a college during early English times.
And especially in the early times, people aren't following it.
His last words were "I am thinking of earlier times."
