Please tell me If I am understanding 5 point Calanism wrongly here on this point of assurance and security.. Seems that the more strict Calvanists appear to intermingle Faith and Works to such an extant that Works are the "proof" of one actually being the elect unto salvation in Christ... That one has to have "enough " of the good works to prove/show they are really saved... Tens to be on the "higher" side of Lordship salavtion , almost to the point that one cannot be sure have given up enough of ones life over the the Lordhip of Christ.. All true Christian believe that one needs to contu=inue to Mature in Christ, to become more and more like him... But isn't there a danger that if you press "proof" of life in Christ into being define strictly by how we live our lives, that we really have no true assurance? Does a Christian perserver because he is eternally secured in christ, or because he makes Jesus fully Lord over his life? Doesn't the strict Reformed Christian, if he does not "watch it" almost bring keeping the Law back against grace by faih alone. or at least almost make it seem like Catholics that we have to co operate with the "seed" God placed in us, if we doonot measure by enough good works and having Jedsus enough as out Lord, can get shipwreaked and lose the salvation?
