More and more, I am seeing some of my friends who were bought up in church, do the whole ‘church thing’, sing on choirs, went to church every sunday only for them to later on to ‘backslide’. So I have to ask the question, did a true regeneration occur? I did address this on my previous post but I came across this video which reiterated not only my view, but what I believe is a biblical view
Many claim to have been Christians and now claim to have ceased practicing Christianity for whatever reason. Where this may be their experience, the truth is they were never true Christians. They used to THINK they were Christians and later only proved they never were. The Bible is clear that God chooses His people, sovereignly saves them, and keeps them through death and unto life with Him. These are fundamental truths to the Christian faith and cannot be changed by experience- we must properly interpret our experience based on truth. Some claim they used to be a Christian. Fact is, Christians endure till the end, because real Christians are drawn and kept by God.
