Arminius’s view of assurance and perseverance urges believers to seek and remain in the Lord by continual faith, the pursuit holiness, and the seeking to live to honor Christ. Calvin’s model of assurance and perseverance teaches that God has unconditionally chosen some for heaven and others for hell. But even some from among those chosen for hell, God may delude and confuse into thinking that they are Christians, saved and enlightened children of God.

What is my point? Let me be very clear. Among the various reasons why Calvinism should be avoided by orthodox Christians, assurance of salvation and perseverance is certainly a contender. In Calvinism, the only hope for the lost is unconditional election. In Arminianism, the only hope for the lost is faith in Christ Jesus by the proactive grace of God — a God who genuinely desires their salvation (Ezekiel 18:23, 33:11;1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9) — a God who would never deceive some people into thinking that they were saved when they were not saved.
