Apostasy/Backsliding – Dying by degrees

Apostasy/backsliding

An Appeal To The Erring Child of God by Leon Brashear

I want to encourage Christians who are no longer faithful to God to return before it is eternally too late.  Contrary to popular teaching the Word of God plainly states that a child of God can fall from grace. (I Cor. 10:12; Gal. 5:4; Heb. 3:13; 2 Pet. 2:20-22).  Someone has observed that in a given community there may be as many unfaithful Christians as there are faithful.  If you are one of those precious souls who, after having obeyed the gospel have fallen away please consider returning to God while there is still time. By remaining in an unfaithful condition you risk being lost for all eternity.  Also, consider the influence you are having on your family and friends.  While living apart from God you are in no position to encourage anyone to obey the gospel and live a Christian life. Your return to God requires repentance, confession of sin and prayer for forgiveness (Acts 17:30; 8:22). Why not return to God, confess the sin in your life and be restored (I Jn. 1:7-10)?
