The following blog post is written by Ryan David Langford, a lay-theologian who has written for this blog ministry before. The initial reason for this post is to respond to Steven Sewell’s (a member of the Society of Evangelical Arminianism) proposition and attack on Reformed theology with regard to perseverance of the saints.
