Mr. Hamilton discusses the necessity of Perseverance.
“There are many churches in the United States that, like the imaginary health clinic in the scenario above, are unwittingly administering “sugar-water” immunizations to their members. These churches teach that salvation is best viewed as a one-time event (not unlike an immunization) which, once it really happens, will ensure the spiritual security of a person even if his spiritual condition stagnates or takes a significant turn for the worse in the years following this salvation event. This is often taken so far as to say that even if a one-time believer at some future point loses his faith in Christ entirely, that person’s continuing security in Christ is never in doubt, so long as he can point back to some genuine salvation experience in the past.”
