Can Christians Backslide?

Segment 1 (00:00) – Backsliding and carnal Christianity are just spiritual laziness.Todd introduces the predicament of today’s “christians” that are continually searching for good feelings to quench their thirst instead of going straight to God’s Word. Todd begins going over the article “How to Backslide in 9 Easy Steps”. He goes over the first 4 points which discuss things like fellowship and meditating on the Gospel.

Segment 2 (10:28) – A true Christian cannot backslide. Todd continues the rest of the 9 points. These points are more related to people who outright leave the faith. Todd explains that there’s a difference from really backsliding and what people today claim as backsliding.

Segment 3 (16:42) – Todd dives deeper into the definition of “backsliding”. He presents the notion that it is possible that those who claim to backslide were really never saved in the first place. He also emphasizes that our walk with God is not determined by how good we are, but by the fact that we need saving every day.
