Backsliding and Falling Away
by Godsword Godswill Onu
The word ‘backslide’ literally means to ‘turn back’ or ‘turn away’ from God, our first love, or the Word of God to satan, the world, the flesh, or evil. Backsliding is a sliding back. Apostasy or falling away is the act or state of rejecting the Christian Faith and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ.
