    “You cannot de-construct something that was never ‘constructed’ in the first place” – precisely!!

    The well-known professing “Christians “? Who have announced that they were “deconstructing” their Christian faith are not Christian’s at all. This deconstruction myth is sending them to Hell. The Bible again was thrown to one side. The word of God is clear. Apostate teaching is causing great confusion. Pray for these lost souls. They were not saved. Pray the Gospel reaches their heart.

    There are wolves dressed as sheep… and there are sheep. However, sheep are still able to become wolves, again.

    To fall away… does this describe those that were already on board with the Living God of Israel?

    Said another way… how can we shipwreck our faith, if we have no ship of faith to begin with, so to speak—that we believe Jesus is in our boat… and we stay in it… rowing for the shore, the other side? Can we shipwreck this boat by no longer believing in the Gospel… the reward of trusting in, evidenced by obedience to, Jesus Christ… fully God who was also born fully a man as our Savior, Redeemer, and Eternal High Priest? Do we shipwreck when we quit rowing… allowing the raging waves break up our boat… our faith?

    1 Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

    Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Said another way… how can we go astray from the right way, if we were never on the right way… how can we become entangled again in the destruction of world, if we haven’t already separated from it?

    2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    On the boat, on the right way, and separated from the world… does this not describe the Saint?

  4. Lisa,
    In Dr. Shelton’s article, he was not implying that Christians cannot be deceived, nor was he negating 1 Tim. 4:1. The article is talking about those who are coming out and outrightly rejecting and denouncing the Christian faith. He is saying, rightly, that there are those who, for a period of time, said they were Christians but never really knew the Lord in the first place. By saying that, it does not refute the other. Both scenarios can happen.

    Maybe these people fell away from the faith? They paid attention to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. The spirit explicitly says that this will happen in the end times.
    1 Timothy 4: 1
    But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.
