Emphasis on conversion vs. perseverance by Craig Blomberg

Craig Blomberg, professor at Denver Seminary makes a sensible observation:

The doctrine of the perseverance of the saints, rightly understood, promises that those who truly believe will persevere to the end.  With twenty-twenty hindsight we may call these people “elect.”  But the only way we know who the elect are is to see who perseveres to the end.  Shouldn’t that make us far more serious about walking with people all the way to the end of their lives and not putting so much emphasis on people apparently crossing the initial threshold of faith and then leaving them largely to fend for themselves when the crises of life emerge?
