Do True Christians Ever Leave The Faith?

Writerdd makes an astute observation:

I’ve been reading the comments here lately and I have noticed that a lot of Christian readers say the same things over and over again: “If you REALLY had been a Christian you would have never de-converted.”

I’ve been struck by another thing recently as well: noticing that many de-converts were formerly in the ministry.

These two things made me think that maybe it’s being TOO dedicated, too devoted, too much a seeker that is the danger.
Here’s what I mean: Maybe we de-converts were more real in our Christianity than the people who can’t believe we eventually rejected “the truth.”

I was a true seeker but what I discovered was… nothing.
Watch out seekers. You may not like what you find.

“Amen,” “brother.”
