Question 1: Is he speaking to Christians or non-Christians?
Question 2: How does a Christian drift away?
Either you are holding fast to your confession of faith in Christ and are striving against sin, OR you are drifting spiritually and are in danger of judgment.
Mark 2:3, Hebrews 2:4, Mark 4:3-9, Matthew 7:21-23
Drifting is dangerous, not because you could lose your salvation, but because, if you drift to the point of never returning, you give evidence that you never possessed it in the first place.
What causes drifting?
- Emotional discouragement
- Fear of man
