How God Sees Him
| Peter writes that a
man who turns back from Christ is like a dog returning to his own vomit (2
Pet. 2: 22) . Proverbs 26: 11, "As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a
fool returneth to his folly." It is evident that with these strong
terms God considers one who turns back from Christ as a fool.
When one comes to Christ he comes to the only Savior man has. When he returns to the sinful world and abandons his commitment to Christ he returns to his folly. It is the greatest of human tragedies. As horrible as are the floods, earthquakes, fires, wars, disease, etc. nothing is more fatal to a person than once realizing his need for Christ and then, having one started toward heaven, to turn back to that destructive path he had forsaken.
Yes, I am aware that some say you cannot fall so as to be lost. But we cannot conclude that when we read what God says on that subject. False teachers pacify the deceived with their error but we shall be judged by the truth as God sees it.
