Charles Stanley says that even if a true believer lose or abandons his faith he will still enter heaven. Can a true believer abandon his faith and become an atheist? I think Stanley is wrong on this matter. True a Christian can struggle with sin and even backslide but I think he will still have heart believe. Every true Christian will show SOME evidence of their salvation. James 2 would not make any sense if we can have true faith without works. Salvation is a gift we don't work for it but because of our salvation we will have some good works to back it up. Not every believer will evidence their salvation the same way. What do you guys think about this matter? Can a true believer completely abandon his faith, stop believing in God. Curse God become an atheist and still enter heaven? I think it's safe to say such an individual was never saved to begin with.
