I was discussing with my Dad the other day, issues surrounding predestination and the perseverance of the saints. Due to circumstances, my parents are in a situation where they must attend an Arminian/Semi-Pelagian church (I'm not entirely sure which it is). We both agreed that agreeing with the perseverance of the saints was a very important issue, but my Dad didn't seem to agree with me that the issue of election and reprobation is as important, which I somewhat disagreed with. My question essentially is, how does the doctrine of election and reprobation affect our lives in our daily walk. Evangelism seems to be an obvious one. Also, I find that an Arminian view of salvation will lead to guilt and burn out (as, if it isn't entirely down to God to save, then how could we rest, knowing it was within our power to bring people to Christ? Their eternal destination is in our hands, kind of thinking). If I'm wrong on these points, could I have some correction? If not, what other ways does election and reprobation help us in our daily life, as well as how does NOT holding to these doctrines affect our daily lives? P.s My Dad is Soteriologically reformed, though I'm not sure how important he sees them to be. I think God is currently challenging his attitude towards other brothers in Christ, who do not hold to doctrines he values highly.
