Larry, this is conversion theology presented as an alternative to "working your way to heaven."
Although mention is made of Christ's "one payment for sins", a new birth is curiously missing from all parts of this animation.
Conversion theology is "half-a-gospel" and a cruel scheme because it identifies the cross of Christ as a historical event while neglecting to invite the power of God for Salvation from sins. Without our own death and rebirth into Christ, we would simply go on sinning and thereby trampling upon the Grace of God. [Hebrews 10:26-29]
While neither sanctification or salvation is a "process", Salvation is made manifest in those who are being saved. If Christ is not manifest in a man, that man is (still) perishing in sins. This is why James reminds us, "faith without [manifest] works is dead."
From the New Testament writings, we are being reminded that: we have been saved, we are being saved, we will be saved. All being true & present together for a man, otherwise not at all: Romans 8:24; Ephesians 2:8; Acts 2:47; 15:11; I Corinthians 1:18; 15:2; II Corinthians 2:15; Mark 13:13; Romans 10:13.
Assurance of Salvation does not come to us by assenting to a doctrine. Genuine assurance comes in the Spirit of Christ, holding firm until the end, [already] having our hearts cleaned from an evil/bad conscience. [Colossians 2:2; Hebrews 3:14; 6:11;10:22-23]
