Jesus & John Talk About Falling Away

Released July 27, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


In this third episode on the topic of the great falling away at the end of the age, we give our ear to the words of the Apostle John and the words of Jesus Christ. Both Jesus and John spoke specifically about the issue of whether or not a genuinely converted believer can commit apostasy or renounce the faith. Surprisingly, what they teach is not complicated to understand, yet many seem to gloss over the unquestionable words of the Savior and His apostle on this topic. We cannot afford to do so as we approach the end of the age. In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff takes us through a small handful of scriptiures and calls us to ask and answer the question, “What is the Bible saying about who can and cannot renounce the faith?” Who exactly are these people who were once connected to the Church, declared allegiance to Jesus, served in ministry…only to later recant all that they once said they believed? Is there any danger that I might become one of those people? There are clear answers to these questions and this episode helps us to throw down our anchors in these choppy waters of theology.
