Perseverance, or Preservation: Addendum
I do want to make it clear, that, despite my commentary on the neo-Puritan movement known as Lordship Salvation, I do not and would not advocate for a position of no-lorship salvation. Implicit in any plea for mercy is the idea that the person to whom the plea is directed is in a position to dispense or to withhold mercy. That is, the person to whom the plea is directed is in authority. While I believe that the call to commitment salvation is unbiblical and exchanges the gift of salvation for the yoke of legalism, I also believe that implicit in placing our faith and trust in Christ is the recognition that Christ is worthy of our worship and that He is Lord; if He were not, He would not have the authority to put away our sin and rescue us from damnation.
