God’s Warning To the Backslider

There are many people in this world that are not living for God and are in a backsliding condition. Some people are even going to church and may not realize they are a backslider. A backslider can return to the Lord by repenting their sins and submitting their life back to God, and he will forgive them. God says, though man’s ways are not his ways, there is nevertheless hope for the backslider. You can read about the story of the Prodigal Son and how the Father welcomed his son back home. God will do the same for you the backslider too because he loves you. Below you will find many scriptures on backsliders. Please take the time to read them and study God’s Word and may God bless you always.
