A couple of odd quotations
I was looking around and found this disturbing bit of doctrine:
... the saints will & must persevere in the obedience which comes from faith. Election is unconditional, but glorification is not. There are many warnings in Scripture that those who do not hold fast to Christ *can be lost* in the end.
Obedience, evidencing inner renewal from God, is *necessary* for final salvation.
There is a fight of faith to be fought. We must endure to the end in faith *if* we are to be saved.
I think it sort of begs the question as to whether one is saved in any sense at all upon faith in Christ. This person seems to speak as if salvation is all a future thing. It also sounds like they suppose salvation can be lost - based upon the first quote. What do you think? Does this sound like a seasoned theologian? Does it sound like a newbie in the Calvinist doctrine or someone who has really made sense of his doctrine?
