Another example of severing what God has joined together by sacrificing one side or element of the Truth for another is in the use of means in election

Arthur PinkAgain, our zeal for the doctrine of election must not suffer us to ignore the necessity of using means. They who reason, If I be elected, I shall be saved whether or not I repent and trust in Christ, are fatally deceiving themselves: “chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:13) is proof. None are ever saved until they believe (Luke 8:12; Hebrews 10:39), and therefore all are to be exhorted to do so.
