A backslider is a person who decided to turn from the Lord Jesus Christ to the point where he or she is now back to the same way they were before they got saved. Basically they are again spiritually dead. Proverbs 21:16 says a man who strays from the path of understanding comes to rest in the company of the dead. And Psalms 125:5 says, “But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers.”
Brothers and sisters, although temptations may be strong, strive with all your heart soul mind and strength to NOT become a backslider. Don’t forget that God is indwelling within to help the true believer. However, He’s not forcing us to do anything. He gives us free choice and we are free will agents. Nevertheless, we must want him to help us. You know 2 Peter 2:20 (KJV) says, “For if after they have escaped the pollution’s of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.” Backsliding is like someone sinking in quicksand yet refuses to grab a hold to the rope keep from sinking.
