Do we persevere in a finished work?

Evangelicalism in general is theologically illiterate and totally confused about salvation. The home fellowship movement should grasp the following reality: Catholicism and Protestantism are both vast mission fields. In addition, I think thousands attending the institutional church would leave tomorrow if they had an alternative.

This particular program was inspired by Andy Young’s Tuesday night Bible study out of Acts, specifically his notation on Acts 27:31, “Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.” Really, when it gets right down to it, the way this passage is often used denotes the official doctrine of the Protestant Reformation and its perseverance of the saints; the idea that one must abide in something to keep themselves saved. Evangelicals either proclaim this outwardly, our unwittingly function that way.

The message I am going to cite tonight from a Reformed blog is a prime example.  I have chosen it because this pastor cites many, many Bible verses that indeed seem to bolster the official Protestant doctrine of perseverance. I want to take the opportunity to address these verses one by one.
